Copy hi we drafted Sam. Exactly drafted me and in my browser. Three forwards I was killed and found where. And extremely. How can that be able to sufferers like that but you know it's a little bit off of those guys that traffic people. We have been in that position old thought myself in the scouts tees or hurt defensive line. And that will be hurtful when it and it. Yeah that sounds like fifty man purgatory. Tim Murray saying the center defenseman don't know or we've been written or been picking so we I mean deep in purgatory. Death. Because reported that they have all these high forwards there I highly drafted forwards it was a great conversation with. Tim marine Mike and I bowled like yesterday so definitely find it odd man WGR 550 dot com we got late to the break so. The the sabres won six to three but that's get a pair of empty matters you know. If the goal song playing goal and two assists for Jack eichel going to goal two assist Ryan O'Reilly as well buffalo breaks it. Four game losing streak they've beat the coyotes as they are supposed to do meanwhile in the NFL Stephon Gilmore getting interest from the bears. Albright Daniel Albright of Lockheed DC yelled Benjamin Albright Katie CO and then report the bills could have registrant and Trevor Ximian if the Broncos picked up Tony Romo. And Stephon Gilmore getting a look from the Bayer's. It would seem those are sports headlines case she Snyder also won the conference tournament on an Albany in the Mac tournament I've got to the quarter pole I mean we we can talk about Margaret. That this jets thing. They're letting Brandon Marshall logo now they've let nick manga Tokyo. Nick full Darrelle Revis I mean Revis has been really bad only. But the jets governor Ryan Clady they got rid of was that who's the other guy jacket meanie yeah jockey meaning they've they've gotten rid of hitting three offensive linemen a cornerback their Pro Bowl kicker. And now their star receiver. So there tanking. Bill pulling out on NFL insiders don't forget next year in the draft is a good quarterback year. Shall we say that maybe their re loading with the idea that this year may not be a terrific year record wise. The jets. If the jets tank. I think there are two reactions bills fans could have. Happiness. You're happy because they'll be batting you'll beat the jets know that two wins no. Or jealousy or envy and then you wish the bills would do that I took I think the jets are playing this perfectly sorry go ahead Nellis I think they're doing a great job of this. And the bills should be doing this we're talking about a jets franchise that is right there with us okay. Having grown up as a jets fan I can run I understand. They've had been largely a joke. They have been largely dysfunctional. They have been largely quarterback bereft. And it helped Ryan Fitzpatrick playing a game for a chance to make it for the wildcard spot was the highlight since Rex Ryan took two teams the AFC championship. Within under which would I mediocre at best quarterback. What the jets are doing to me makes perfect sense that you pointed out yesterday I was not happy Todd balls he's probably not gonna see the end of this. The probably get fired their talking about I I'm just can't take it lets you guarantee him another year or else he should just quit. But I'm I'm trying to fine I saw a story this morning I wanna say it was a pro football talk some and go through this while we're doing the segment. Something that said the jets are anticipating losing for at least two years. Plot what they're doing now is they're positioning themselves to be the worst team in the draft to have the number one pick and have tons of cap room. Wonderful night I heard Robin lumber talking this morning that they're getting rid of cancers in the locker room. I never thought nick mangled was considered a catch and rock of an I I I'm not sure that a kicker could drag dragged down an entire team. I think what they're doing is they're trying to get to the top of the draft and at the same time open up the Donna cap space and really blow up that to basically Cleveland. Getting hurt cancers in the locker when you're going to tank what that means is that the sabres went through that we want guys who want to be here because players. Don't wanna be on a bad team right to the might say they're nick mangled or whoever might say. I guess there are bad for two years kind of on purpose well that public give me out of here I think that's what Brandon Marshall did yeah. He asked for his release date did not make maybe they're planning on getting rid of him anyway I don't know but the story is he asked to be released and the (%expletive) said okay. So you know I mean if your bread and marshland you see what's going on around you and all the guys that are being cut and you look at the quarterbacks they haven't think. We're going to be bad for a little while then I wanna get out of there too. And guy I would go with jealousy or envy I could care less if they stop on the jets twice next season if this works out well in the jets get a quarterback. A really legitimate quarterback. I guess set the best quarterback they've had. In forever. May be as Chad Pennington that. They might draft the best quarterback they've had their franchise history right it wouldn't it would like not a very high bar to clear schedule is bring up neighmond. Neiman tool does bring up painting and there was a little stretch there were Richard hot in the early eighties they needed to and AFC championship game they are bigger Esiason we're talking. Pretty run of the mill quarterbacks. For the life of this franchise at least we had Kelley. Who's their Jim Kelly run. They didn't have that so if they if this is if this works out and they get their quarterback and their legitimate franchise quarterback. It's a brilliant idea for them but this is some. How long that they would have been around as long as the bills right so fifty something years. They've tried it the other way and what are they got to show for themselves they had that they want Super Bowl three. And since then they've been a largely. Onto relevant French they like to bills they've been Tom Brady's punching bag they are beaten Brady more than BellSouth. But. I think they're doing the exact right thing that the thing nation what they're doing is looking at who they are now how talented they are thinking when I can win a lot of games next year so why bring back Brandon Marshall why bring back. These players that are gonna what the difference between three wins in four wins right. Who cares save money get to the bottom draft high yet and you know and you are talking about a team. Two there of maybe to their credit is truce to their credit they did keep drafting quarterbacks they took a shot at price petty well they drafted geno Smith. And didn't work out let's bring in rice paddy. And in no indication that it's going to work out let's bring in Christian had convert and in other words there's talk after the season this guy still had no idea. How to understand the playbook so at least they they did keep drafting quarterbacks. None of those guys look to be the answer or shall appear the jets what do you do. Let's go to the top of the draft when their could be a guy up their number one. That right now people are saying could be a really special court compared to Andrew Luck blocking and Peyton Manning. Trying to get a consensus number one quarterbacks. Who was the last one before Locke was a consensus number one we thought liner would be he went back to school and then by the draft wasn't pint. He was available to come out. Other guys that have gone on the top ten Matt Ryan with the overall and make it doesn't happen at all they were the Eli and rivers Eli okay yet. Doesn't happen that often where you noble for the draft but well before a this guy's gonna go number one and you'll have years where you get a strong class law Andrew Luck was with Jake Locker and Ryan Mal it was going to be. Great great class quarterbacks these three guys. Only lock ended up being in the real deal locker and now but not so much so ya this year you have. Josh rose in. A couple other guys that are out there and put 118 but it's it's Rosen and Arnold that are the two for next year so if Arnold decides to stay in school like what's the consolation prize is bill polling points out there in that article there's mention that. It's strong class. And I want I just wonder what the bill's plan is because. Passport this time next year. Do you take what will Sean McDermott he'll take any pride. Will the bills organization they'll take any pride if next year the jets are picking one and the bills are picking eleven. And both teams still desperately need that quarterback in the builds as the bills seven and ninety in the bills they did a you know did what they are gonna do anyway they bring in Ximian Iran are often so they. The re up with Tyrod. And they say let's go for this thing mean even an optimistic bills fan I think we'll look at their channel look at a first year head coach look at their schedule and say. Seven and tough schedule seven wins it's a very difficult schedule and your playing the best teams in the league a lot of them about the best quarterbacks in week yeah and to try and win like that Serena. Maybe Shaq Lawson as a big impact maybe Reggie rag and I remember him yesterday remember him Reggie Bragman I do like I think about him and when I look at book that the about the linebackers for next year so they should be adding some pieces next year that I. Ideally help that there healthier become me like adding to draft classes. So in you never know and that's why they play the games but there are over under in Vegas all that's it. They'll be a seven. To six and a half to seven overall under the apple not be expected to do well if they do great. But. It's it's hard not to feel a little bit of jealousy if the jets knowing what they are the bills don't know what they are. And at least the jets have that we know we are terrible there and hope the bills are where they typically are there in the middle there in limbo there. There are they they never get. To the point where they decide let's just blow this thing up well they haven't the last time they blew this thing up. Was when Donna got Donahoe came in and inherited a cap mess and that I've got to get rid of all these veteran players and unload all these contracts OK that would have been. Sixteen years ago so you know since then the bills are never bad enough to get to the top of the draft. They aren't good enough to make the playoffs there's somewhere in between. And what they continued to do is. Stay in between now like well you know we we could. They're always just kind of they never rip the band laid off the rose just kind appealing to them at little. And putting it from Brandon on an and it just doesn't it doesn't get you to the place you need to be the thing that would scare me okay here's what would scare me. If if this works out if this is what the jets are doing and they're taking to get to the top of the draft. And again at some are projecting him to be the the jets would have the best quarterback possibly net in the history their franchise. The thing that scared me last season was. Who may be can hell's gonna be okay after raw like it I don't wanna be passed by the jets in the dolphins in the division Brady's right. Forget New England who think nobody thinks about New England. If there's you know that the other three teams and can anybody be good afternoon after Brady retire. I thought well you know what Miami's in the same boat with the jets in the bills right they don't make the playoffs they fire coaches they fired GM's. They've got a quarterback invested big money and and you know what he's not that gut. And last year he began to make plates may be gays is the got to bring something out of Bryant and Allen may be turns out to be a really good quarterback but. And this is ten and a much different than it was last year. Yeah to me I was he got sacked fewer times I thought but he he he made clutch throws he made plays in the fourth quarter he helped that team come back and win games when critical games I think he's kind of I think it was the same guy. For the most part and I think it's just a matter of if you have a guy like tanning don't give him he's been given now five years well I finally made the playoffs and right they've been blessed and they had a daughter and I did yep and then and then they were roundly exposed as they look he got beaten their playing Matt Moore right. Not the day I don't think they would've won a playoff game anyway that I had not met more we did beat the bills though by the way. I'm Ted L ten tells him he's the same as Taylor. If you get Tyrod Taylor at the bills pick up the option for Tyrod Taylor and commit to him to play him the next five years I've got to make the playoffs wants. But doesn't mean and in that year the light went on. You know you're gonna have small ups and downs you're gonna change coaches maybe Adam gays. Can get Ryan ten hill two a 94 overall and 793 overall you know Dick. That's a bad number to use but. Just you're gonna have natural ups and downs are gonna have schedules that are different you're gonna have your division but what's that what what's different about ten hill. And the dolphins this year the difference is they beat the bills and at the bills had been beating the dolphins almost every year and this year the dolphins. Sweep the bills and make the playoffs because of it but they ended up winning games that the dolphins were traditionally lose. You know they they they escaped against Cleveland and as the season went on. What they they almost blew a game against separatist go but they hung on to win it they went out I think they went out west and beat the rams sure they beat the bills mean that's a team that like the bills. Will she issue. They'll find a way to put themselves in the hunt and then they'll lose a couple games you'll scratch your head and say. How did you lose that football game the dolphins wins last year they did beat Pittsburgh. Outs after that was actually good for the I mean here's they're clear they're wins buffalo. The jets the chargers the rams the niner ship the cardinals. At home the jets and bills. But there's not a good team there I understand that but and I know what your samba when he looked like a different guy to me. Then he was the first four years in the senate the first four years she was just a nothing quarterback finally he made place I thought. That doesn't and maybe Iraq. I hope it's not a light goes on. But my point is last year scared me because was that a light goes on moment for Ryan and I'll I hope not because if it was the Miami will be in much better shape you know. And and yet sure it's not a daunting schedule be you know what the dolphins lose those games in the past like the bills do. The dolphins would be paying Gergen and loose an effort Cisco and about what that guy's. Yeah maybe I don't know if they get that light is schedule each and every year that's that's pretty light what they want this year no I probably not I'll have a sexual secondly schedule yet. Yet the AFC east is gonna be it's going to be tough to get wins immunity if you're the patriots of course you've got through division which gonna help. But. With ten hill to meet its its I amidst this minute ago is just like Taylor you know if tyra got five years would you bat on the bills to make the playoffs one of those years I definitely would. Yeah I definitely what it's it's a point about the turnover in the and the changeover to many different quarterbacks to reform coaches if they kept McDermott and Taylor for five years and even Dennis and if if the tyrant can run his offense. That's what makes the drought so astounding you're supposed to just kind of accidentally get in from time to time because your schedule because somebody in your division gets hurt. Because. That the team Univision has such a bad year that ends of being too free wins because Tom Brady is suspended you know like. There supports amber gets her for the year. They're supposed to be things that happened that just get you win even if you're not that good while Miami did win the division one year because Tom Brady got hurt in the opening day finished eleven and five urged white and bright. So I don't think the dolphins the dolphins made the playoffs last year and my. Sitting here like you mentioned you don't know that the dolphins pass the bills I don't think that their much different than they were the year before that or the year before to me they're still the dolphins don't like the Texans. It's like. Okay you're the team that stepped into that sixth or fifth AFC playoff spot that someone has to occupy that is often occupied by. The team that's not much better than the bills but finds a way to be. You like three wins better than the pills I hope you every year I hope Iraq. I just think for last season made me think that of maybe they found their guy I honestly. You know cut you said with tireless here five years. If I was in Miami I would have tired of China hell years ago he would have never made it to a fifth year quite honestly because I would have in the first four years I saw nothing. In terms of improvement I would've said the same thing about ten help but I feel about Tyrod he is serious we've seen it from Ryan Tannen Helen I'm not sure what else there is left in the guy. Estimate maybe there's maybe there's your argument for picking up the option on Tyrod Taylor. Look tanning may be got better in year five there's there's your argument guys he's only had two years he needs the right coach. You know gays help ten hill Dennis and helps Tyrod. I just I would've lost my patience with rent and only didn't show me anything up until last he's one of the follow up could be this would you rather be the jets of the dolphins. A resident jets. Because I I've got a purpose and I'm I'm I'm trying to get to a guy who is supposedly. The next special quarterback coming out of college. You know how it is debt or hell. Would have had dolphin fans that hate him. And nephews know how good I would even in that group and they woods in Indy would be sold I think locked into this that they would be mad. That he looked a little bit better and they won up there they got the playoffs and because now they'd say. But we've done this with with the sabres you know. It's fool's gold and it will here we are we're gonna dedicate more time to the sky where he gave more time to gays and ten hill and if you go this is for someone who never believe in and help from the saarc then you probably still be able live in that spot and say. I I wish we would just lose because I don't think this is the gotten and people say that about quarterbacks that make the playoffs like Dalton and we've Flacco did win a Super Bowl but. You can apply any quarterbacks that are not grape and you know the national guys probably go on their radio stations and say you can win games with this guy elected you for all the teams. But don't ever win Super Bowl. Shepperd back. Cavern I would say it's a great quarterback no little run going there for a couple years. But it I I wouldn't call a great quarterback but whatever he found a way to win they get a formula and it worked for a couple years there he's looking for a job 8030550. Join us. 515 Q 550.

What else needs to go out like you beast claim Bowling Green tonight and alumni arena the bandits are playing Rochester. And Golden State has lost back to back regular season games we need to send out a breaking sports text for the first time since April 2015 it's a 146 games they went without back to back losses and a season low 87 points in the loss to the Chicago Bulls. Football notes of the current Cuban news scares me reporting that Cleveland San Cisco the jets all have interest in Tyrod Taylor. And according to the Chicago Tribune. The bears are expected to pursue Stephon Gilmore when he hits the free agent market. Those your sports headlines the next update coming up at 8 o'clock on our AT&T hotline right now is our very own Paul Hamilton. Who was at the game last night good good morning Paula aria. Well are you a good Paula every start first. I probably. Okay. I just was curious I haven't and is one of the city of how lame of an individual dynamics and habits maybe like once I mean I don't remember connect. Summit which got his no never I think that. And it's good enough that that works for me. Paul you you know I don't they played last night but you know I wanted to talk to about Tim Murray. And I his comments were bull blog before the game last night so good to know the GM is on the same page. With everybody else he needs said he has to take care of his defense that's that's nice to hear actually. Yeah and he did say you know that's on him it's not on the coaches that's not on anybody else bought him. And it's not on the players and that's his responsibility. And you know the defense isn't wanted. You know what it should be he knows that and he knows that. He's the one that's responsible for fixing. He also talked about Bulldog brought up the idea of bringing back cool cough for one year. On the premise of he hasn't been healthy it has affected his game he'd get health in the offseason to be back so let me bring up two things with cooler cough. I'm I'm gonna guess Paul that that the injury has affected how he has played this season. But did the thing that bothers me about him Paula and I don't know off the injury causes this. It's his decision it's his reads and again he pinch his last night on a play the Fords are in no position to get back a rally can't get back up ice to catch the guy. There cola cup gets beat they go to 11 they score the other way. I don't all that's because he's got a back injury or not but it's what he does is his decision making on the ice that bothers me more than anything else. America things that I see. Like not playing your position exactly what you just described that. You have nothing do with the injury there're there're a lot of things that we've CME ice that you have something to do with injury. As far as again he he said there are different factors that would go into whether they would want to re sign him or not. Even to a one year one year deal one of the biggest things is. The the medical staff and trainers tell worry that they feel they can get. Who coughed back to what he used to be. In the off season. But he's got us it's one of these deals where they got to be able worked with him and strengthen whatever they have to strengthen. Whether it's backer whatever it is that we're talking about here he says he's gonna have to put the work in the in the summertime actually said. I because I haven't discussed that with them. I don't know if he's willing to stay here all summer and he said in that would be are contributing factor. Whether they would want to bring him back or not with a contract. But because I don't know if he's willing to put the work in he goes quite honestly I don't know if he wants to be here because we we haven't had any of those discussions. So he said. Which is a surprise on its own fault we thought when they traded for him he had an expiring contract that you know if you identify this player like him that much you wanna extend him. But he he was saying he doesn't know cool cop wants to write I understand what I'm saying is the day he was acquired. We're not that I wish I would have thought the would have been at some point a conversation about hey you're the guy one year left and your deal like are you thinking about your next contract and and which are saying that cool cop wouldn't of played here lived here yet some and he would know. What he thinks about the organization in the area I guess take on things I'm surprised that there really hasn't been any conversation. To gauge cool cause interest in another contract. He he says there hadn't Bannon. So there are terrorists that they are factors that they're here they have to come into play before. As he said he goes. He goes to any egos US set questioning goes for me to answer that question he goes there are probably ten other questions that I need to be answered before I can answer that one. And so he he said they're just different different factors that are going to go into it. Before he can say yeah I'd like to. Like to you know and maybe give them one year deal Leo they use talking about is contracts. You know we we wanted to go about Evander Kane a couple of days ago it would he'd be open. To a contract extension with came. Annie said he said Michael and Ryan Howard come first. You know the they would be the first one that you would talk extensions with first and he said then after that container others would fall into place after that. Actually even sent elect the next defenseman he wants to acquire would come in before Cain. But fitting in the contract of that guy who ever that guy is it however he can go get him. The some like Dallas priority over any sort of conversation about commander cain's future. Know when it and it might be the that that would be true because. You have to. You'd have this figure out. Going forward aren't what's world what we have to pay article one of against Iran are what are we gonna have to pay this defense and we're looking for. We know we already know what O Reilly it's gonna cost us. And then it's like okay. We've done mess now look up and say do we have enough king moving forward or don't and so. That is still decision on McCain. Could wind up having nothing to do with. Hockey. On the ice. Behavior off the ice or anything other then. You know what we got to recount earlier hours to wind is is a high and contract he. I don't think you're gonna be able to get out from under our contract like the explosions. And see only gets to a point where it's either say do we have enough money that we we can do it. Paul Hamilton any AT&T hotline Paul Tim Murray also kind of snuck a word in their during the conversation with the ball log. The word system which is a dirty word you know we talk about miles and his system is at the right system and then Murray. If I'm not mistaken kind of made a comment a lot all along those lines like you are we doing everything we need a new do we need to do we need to changer tweak I don't know exactly which were used. Do we need to change the system to a two war you know a justice system. This might have been her response to market to cool cop so that might be the first indication I've got a marine might wanna do things differently. From the come from the are coaching standpoint maybe he thinks that the way this team is. Most built from schematic standpoint our system's standpoint that it needs improvement they're too. Well he was talking about bad. They were discussing their their 1230 discussing. Defensively. How how they play and what kind of tweaks they might have to make defensively so they're not giving up forty shots every game. You can say. Our it it looks like they they did a few things against Arizona but I think we need to put the brakes on here because. It's against Arizona and yes they. They spent very little time in the offensive and I think one of the reasons they were better defensively last night is because they have a pop most of the night. And they were in the offensive zone most of the night. Arizona four shots in the first period who came on two on ones by the same guy he scored on one album and then Letterman save on the other. Other than that day it really didn't give up anything and until the third period where it was more than even period. They didn't give up much but I think a lot of that had to do with the puck possession they had. And playing a team like Arizona I'll be much more impressed if you know I against Tampa and Pittsburgh this coming weekend. Taking a look fair and seeing if the shots come down there because remember. They were on the bottom of the league but they totally given up like 31 shots a game for awhile. And I was still like second worst in the league and then all of a sudden it's like forty at night every night. And you know let's jump off like ten shots tonight. He was talking about we you know. What tweaks can they make to the system defensively. You know he he had questions that coaching staff what are you gonna Dubai office. You know what were worded no overrun with forty shots every game what's the plan what are you gonna do to tweak the system. To. Cut down on the opportunities in the shots that are coming your way. What is the plan you know OK because what when he was always Bulldog one of the things he said. Bulldog asked him you know even with cycle you know you're still looking at a team that's been around a little bit over 500 but you're 63 points in 63 games. Annie asked him why and one of the things he brought up Pauly talked about we still don't score a lot off the rush. But he you know he said we lose for some reason we lose confidence in the defensive zone. And and he referred to what you just brought up the long conversation with coaches after the national game. Why do they lose confidence in the defense to zone and how do you fix it so it doesn't happen. It's like something goes wrong. And it's like oh no. And the over note didn't come into play I mean you're sitting there last night. Both the third goal posts and its screen shot is off the polls. And now you're sitting at three theory that could have been an oh no moment. And for once that wasn't it was an oh no moment in Arizona where you got a two nothing lead everything's going your yeah your fine. You're not getting overrun. And crystallize in the minds of giving the parkway in the slop they score and I you know run no errors on it picks it up. Men and it's the old nobleman and before you know you've given up three goals we've lost the game. They at least didn't do that against Arizona again they had every opportunity to do that it. That cool look off play that you mentioned it turns into a two while one of the hired now one nothing. When when I think it's really their first opportunity of the game tolls for them have been in the zone. And now right now you're down one nothing in date they still they stuck with it and he won a scoring shorthanded goal. I keep saying this. But you are playing Arizona and I think it will see more protests. You know does Tampa and Pittsburgh wind up with forty shot teach him or or is that going to be reduced they've done some things that will help reduce that. Is that team. For whatever reason more motivated because they're GM came in. And since said he has confidence in them and they heard it from them maybe they've they've talked a lot about that in the locker room. They needed to hear that from him. It was something that inspired him is that is one game thing or I'm gonna go with Arizona to. Where we're going back to what I just said before yeah. So much and to know a lot of is that so we're gonna find out yeah it's Saturday as Tampa which is a red hot team. Sunday here in Pittsburgh. And find out how much better they are from. From either quote we Cuba's system or listening to merge. The other thing I would ask about back to the contracts and what Murray said come July 1 talking to Jack Hawkins Sam they'll go from there you're the GM Paul. Bridge deal vs long term deal how many guests. There wouldn't be mean I would've been less of a debate with right argued pry wanna bridge deal there what about Michael. What bridge deal you know do you take them up to within a year of free agency would you drive would you do a Max deal what what would you do if America. Now he wants to have a long term deal with cycle. It's that's what I would do to. I in my as well get that out of the way into it now. I. Mean he didn't really any of the things center Everest line and they. They pretty much knew that it's not gonna be average dealer it's gonna go forward I think. Brian art it's easier to do a bridge deal that's what you want to do and not have to do the big contract right away. I I I don't think he its. Point in his young career where he's here he's earned that yet. But I think Michael has and I think they get Eiffel line it's going to be fairly big numbers and it's going to be a fairly long term. All right mr. Hamilton thanks for your hockey observations and enjoy working all weekend. Thanks very much in hockey. Now is still workable. Well they did you you were working last night at so if you didn't get a chance he would go online go watch the tribute they did to. Yes I actually give you a chance to pretty outfit because you've seen your fair share of what you know whether it's the sabres turf you're an opposing arena is up but you've seen your fair share of TV timeout let's welcome back former so former you know right and they show little montage. I thought they did in Montreal last night was on beautiful yeah good thing that are here here was working. With he and of a lot of things get put it but it was. I just thought it was great pollen and it was so emotional for him but it was also done before the game it wasn't jam it in the north break when we're in a two minute TV break. And he's on the bench he just puts a stick up in the air on the ice arena dark. Big montage spotlight on him afterwards I thought it was done so well from start to finish it is but you know I attribute like to Miller. They wanna do that. During the play because they want minority missed TI yeah you know to order as and it's our faceoff with help. Yeah you know type of things so there's a little bit of a strategy two but that the Europe the comedians that are to see it on working on one of those trio. Whatever you should win every retire. How have a great weekend sir. I will take care guys aren't quite a line call that coming up just mom Paula this by the way the AT&T hotline. Top of the hour we'll going out to Indianapolis will talk about Tyrod Taylor from the trade stories that are circulating Trevor Ximian. All the stuff that's happened and out there at the com bind it's going in full full mode today with running backs on the field working out south with a city eight from increases stay tuned for that whiner line on the way and when we get back I wanna tell you. There's one. Number one Michael contract. Only one. That should send fear. Coursing through a worst fear course or your trigger strikes your heart fear component in fiscal course one contract I don't that's that I took a sign that should strike. Fear of into your heart. Can't worry is that genius. He doesn't hurt us single player and we just about the greatest offensive performance in the last. Pretty you can bury it's a genius. Dmitry cool cough it up past defenseman we might have ever had on our team and he was Smart not to rate and everybody left and Denver apes those bullets used dealings here comes a miraculous run. Yeah maybe towards that it's acceptable it. Yeah you're gonna push there's been a lot of what's come up with it. I think aaron's brief comment on the news good. Don't flip and out of at a loss overs over the virtually empty net goals that. There were panel healthier offensive it was a tight game by the way it was five minutes ago on a night when the sabres dominated puck possession numbers right. So. And now and he's doing hand to as because they beat Arizona no not at all I got a a wine slash question an all time hockey. And and this was going to be asked by war controversy she mod traverse she thing to see the Joshua sang uniform number storing. Yes these wearing number 66 death. But a number that's not retired and I supposed to be upset over his honestly. If that the number was that special the league what are retired by now right nobody wears 99 the league retired nine to nine denying yes. I saw other I saw this morning and I thought okay but it Mario LeMieux great player no question about it but. Okay just don't we're 66 appear on the penguins you can't. I don't have a big problem when I mean either I get out of feeling a what if this is one of those things where people play the game are going to be like outraged that he was ranks. OK and you're that outraged public to retire and so nobody ever wears the uniform number again. So Jim Murray talked about Michael Reinhart as July 1 they can talk their entering the final year of their entry level deals. The conversation that moral have a Michael's agent who mean you know that the agency or ever will be you know how long you looking for how long the sabres a report. Let's power rank the the best deal and the worst deal not money just term. He thinks best is three years. Second best is eight. Okay see out. And you won three years just so just so does that commit long term yet yet over canister a pick as I would love the long term the number that should strike fear in your heart is for OK explain why I would say but take you what you live free agency status after seven accrued seasons. 123. And then 41234. Make seven you affect. So what is likely want a here are our first three or eight. Seriously like no I I hear you duty three or eight I McCain ensign for eight years with Colorado. His entry level deal right 28 years okay has some guys sign in neighbor to six and accept Jones signed for six with. -- Columbus on the ultimately got that deal done and looking around at who signs what in bark off just signed this year. Bark off signs with the Panthers it's. You know bridge deals. There are bridge deals where you say show us how good you are and then their bridge deals where it just means I'm just trying to control. You know you as an asset. Yeah so it's four is the scary one if if my math is correct that. You know that would mean it'd be as soon as he could possibly get unrestricted free agency Barca signed a six year deal. Michael would I I'm assuming cycle would love the Max deal. Can I write the teeny watney graves and and it's in my when he got the three. The only reason he might want three is our right if you if you wanna make it eight with the salary. Well achieves its going to be at least seven or seven I mean within I would say seven re halfway to the contract if he threw up a number seven with kaine yesterday for 88 years seven pert and it's got to be at least that seven per. It's four years from now he can be very much underpaid clerk so the reason he would go shorter would be say seven sounds great for three years. And then maybe it's ten depending on you know how good he is over the team is and all that he's got forty points in 43 games. He came back on November 29 or that's when he returned lineup Ottawa via rear ended November and the this was sent out last night and it was John Groce Ross that since the day. Michael came back me David who is he still lead league in points of interest either one or two OK it's not limiting its Crosby David as 43 points Michael as forty. Since Michael returned to lineup. You know if jacks mean he's hot right now he's got an eight game point streak and he's approaching a point per game for the season he's got a he's got a shot at it. He's only three points behind points per game. Which is Newman David guest nights mean David lees the league's 72 point 72 points. Pretty good now but points per game in this league and how many games of the sabres played. They've got what eighteen left so those X is more war while. If Michael plated this whole this whole season this pace right now he'd be at sixty points. Right now. Tony I mean again that's we're taking a really hot stretching and the you know that that he's only played half a season basically so the tennis gives it a bit but you are yet are projecting an out. But that would put him around I think around ten in the league he's at sixty. Wincing yes sixty points is eleventh Jamie Benn has sixty points could drop this tent with sixty once that he be right around tenth in the league in points. I'm still one of the you know not exactly most the talented offensive teams in the National Hockey League. Are they broke up the lines and they all still scored although they. Scored with. A lot of special teams try to sketch well that's that was a strange game for the had a shorthanded goal they had to add to that goals they had two power play only two paralegals and lovely rules. One even strength goal last night. And again and I was they really dominated shots and shot attempts and that's the third period came from all Riley that was a beautiful goal but when you rip that shot and and our white line call today about a way brought you by the premier group wind made easy a commodity water line is available all weekend long whatever you see.
