Oklahoma Buffalo Sabres WG or sports drink like fifty. Would knowing him for calls and we're used to call it wound. One on how you doing when I talk to the other day gain ever after anymore. William like notes rubio might look like generally not good thinkers you're the first you're the first guy yes the world. As much money around you'll. Mike gotta show him. Sitting atop. He also controlling for the music debt. The voice portion is done. You guys and turn on my excess headphones there army where we're got to show did deal we're sitting here talking hockey. It is the one goal show a microbe with tiger on WGR present about Roswell Park Cancer Institute. The official and exclusive comprehensive cancer center of the Buffalo Sabres and brought two in part by the precision of professional grade. This is precision this is GMC easier Western New York GMC dealer and buy first Jewish for the moments in your life go forth. You for what problem what about will it's. The number of polls and yeah meetings that I ever goals that were in our the sake of all this stuff they've gone through for the outside step in the replays yet. Germany goals have been turned over. I thought it was a legal one don't know is likely they might add I don't know how many reviewed. From what I understand 99 of those reviews have been turned over not more than that no I don't think so we had the numbers on the show yesterday it was like one point nine. There was 29 had a 92 it was like 30%. Wait is that just came off the board is that just the challenge all the challenge he is he speaking to just offside Hulk out and I just the sound on an outside it's also not easy goals called out. That that I just I challenge not go in affairs this is strictly the office I noticed I thought it was like a look at by the way one night. It was so I'm wondering. You know why even keep it. And at this point it was just a little bit. Keep a low humidity the game and went or whatever but I kind of I buy into the checking on these goals whether there are legitimate or not. And that might be worth it I could be sold on that. But I'm not sure about the subsites for machinery. Look at two linesmen you've pretty well have to eyeball things get pretty close right so that's just my take on that. What I liked about the GM meetings morning else that they didn't do anything. This great game we keep on touring with the changing it is too much of offense keep two. This is getting too intricate. Let the game grow the way it is it is growing very nicely not growing well I think it's pretty good product right now who watch I would beg to differ I wouldn't I think it's just so fast skating why don't you fun game to watch I think he'd be faster. Faster overall more Wallace and we could be better broadcasters to look we all I brought us we're all at the scene but. The rubicon but when you get any better. Problem. So that's where Democrat general I think of course they can get better there's lot of things they can do I don't like the suspensions some. They're not strong enough I never like those tonight and I think they couldn't leave. Given ressam and you know of sites give us your opinion on the ankle discussion we're having this morning. I think. Either cutting it pretty tight. I think if you were I think if you're re frame the question. I'll look forward to just how do we that you. Let's continue whenever they play catch or wanna talk about I and CI always anticipate. People listen for all four hours which of course they don't so paranoid android has Seoul last night the sabres lose six to 31 as things stand miles mine is asked about is the slow start they got off to a a very slow start. And he talked about how the first goal was a it was was a problem so here's files on that. On the first go against the tugboat that nothing you ready to play our apartment there it's we're trying to go through three guys on three in the neutral zone gets turned over those in the exactly that. So he says is a result of trying to go one on three a turnover happens. Men between the Blue Line the Red Line pretty close the Red Line that's Jack cycle turns it over they showed on the broadcast the goal goes in. By the end that I check has two goals and an assist I'm listening to post game I hear him kind of say that the first goal Hough mean the first goal the first goal but he's really hung up on that goal and I think. He's really trying to get after Michael for a tar over. And I texted break right away into Braden did you find when we talked to vials my early in the season because after they lost to Vancouver. Michael had eternal led to a goal at two game they also going to lose like but for two. After that game files in the said the other for a score again hosts are known about it after the house. He said this if you don't know the focal or at least five times tonight that I'm gonna venture but if you need to try to make plays that's what you do and he's great at a you have with our artistic means he's gonna turn the puck over and of course the game and frankly we want him to. If you. And he came on Tuesday and talked to us that Tuesday. Which is Valentine's Day about. We know he's gonna turnover if he's not he's not going like that's him and we're gonna live within because we know that's what this is about he needs to be doing. So I hear that imposed game that equal flashes in my mine I think like. I've got a mixed message from my coach here. And although Bob by the way also begin a six colts last might eighty stretch and strength at six even strength goals. To me Mike this is how the conversation started about Michael about piles and about maybe mixed messages or what's it you know all this it's kind of let the day today. The coach said. I want you to be turning it over because that I think on that day he knew I've got to live with it and then last line post game. He calls out. And I just wonder about that that's mix that's a mixed message. Right and the question is what the question is actually you know what I'll put it still look at tonight and right before. I know I don't eat it too much here but can I tie in another actor Michael because we brought this up. What's today Wednesday brought this up yesterday with him about his comment the other day about Jack. And what you thought about Sidney Crosby he was talking about how Crosby some players you know they gonna be a forty goal scorer of the gonna be a fifty assists guy some guys are good up to do both Crosby is good enough to be bulk. And and Basel was bring updated if we'd Russia will what is Jack going to be. He's going to be the goal scorer is going to be the guy who's going to be the 5060 assist men and set up his teammates and maybe not score many goals. As he could because of his passing and all other stuff and US bows and about it because. Your thought was well isn't that depended on what the coach wants him to be with organization. Once and to be not as much what Jack determined to be. So all that stuff. Go under pressure it. I think you shave and a pretty. If you're asking the same question. I would pretty well answer at the same wave miles my dead yeah. Except. I might have added him. Within reason okay we wanna choose to it is still can't answer to be a bit of a gunslinger into yet yeah surely is played initially back and I would have maybe he's put that are but I I think you're really really getting Picayune hear this guy says a lot overseas and we also a lot of the shorter season. You're gonna go back and just pick certain spots that it. I mean. We depict an awful lot of spots out that I misspoke. Certainly am not saying you guys but I certainly have missed it a lot of titles Rollins said things and I've been wrong so many times probably more than right. But you have to swing the bat and hit it gently that I got our area so here's an after the game when he had the sail boats. But Michael and he was talking about an article. I disagree and everyone I thought they played really well the first five minutes six minutes of the game and they got into a fight they're banging people there skating like Al. There's lot of energy in the game. And I think that goal right there took a lot of them there's a lot more involved in the game but at that point in time these seemed to deflate. Now. What I want Jack to do is every time he gets the puck I want him to be I have imagination. Do some great things whether because there's just a handful of people that can do what he can do my wanted to take advantage of those skills. But I also want Jack to understand that. There is that this is still a team game the night you have to play. A certain amount of defense not a lot but he you have to be good not bad but good okay that's not a big deal. But really not at all out offensively now it's your choice at times when they go it's just like defense when they can monitor him the have a guy coming in to check them. They live apart cop breaking get a packets and given golf. Great place Gretzky nobody ever in the game. Was better than Gretzky or aura that maybe the two best players are played the game in the given go. I didn't say they never they never had to take a chance of beating two guys level on three that were in the area. They just laid off break in the get a back when you go I think to be a great part of Jack's game because as time goes on. They're gonna realize just how great he is and how they're really gonna have to bear down on my thought Philly did a great job on that. I thought they checked them beautifully they had one guy and probably one guy vote. Maybe about ten feet away it's will put in their just in case you did get by him. Because they're probably putting the same before the game was we got a double check this guy he'll beat you the first he'll beat the first guy all the time somebody else to pick them up. So I just wanna see more balance in his game but way way. The heavy side would be the offense. But. Was whilst not telling the truth after the game absolutely. That's sort of you're gonna say why didn't you bring up all the rest. Why don't slightly. Is carried such a high standard I know that some of these other players do you don't even I mean it's not even. You'd run out of air I get I'm talking about it but Michael's not here everything's magnified with him if Michael's last year and he knows I talk and that's why such a great player. He did that his whole career walk around 12 and three guys step he's not gonna walk around three guys and swooping in to check them. Once in a blue moon you might be one or two occasionally. But you've got to be you your choices have to hear better that that's all I'm saying and he'd he'd be a better player if he did got to make it easier and. Because what I worry about Mike is again. I ended your. You're right. There there isn't I don't think this is an issue of where you just go to Jack and say green nightmare and you just go whenever you wanna go don't worry about it and I'll just learned delivered the mistakes. You'd you do have to be Smart when you're making these decisions. But we're also talking about the guy who is the best offensive player on this team who is the best puck possession player on this team with the most creative player on this team. And for me. If there's any chance. That a message from a coach. Tips I called to more be safer style of play it's not worth that message I'll live. With that turn over last night which is beyond my blue line and there are still four other players on the island might tend not to stop. The goal to see what happens is that you guys up if you don't if there is a little bit modicum of defense and your game. You end up scoring two and causing three end up scoring one and causing one. You know that when you sync modicum of defense he's saying I called the team in general. Does it while it's always if you mean everything but we're just talking to Jack but there's not quite like here's my point the team in general defensively. Is damn. Is that Michael's fault when I said that's still Taylor for a long time and I but what we're saying it is okay Jack. This season. Don't carry the puck as much because you know what if you turn it over crucial bad back there were screwed. Okay that's not on our yards on his manager goods on the average you'd never say that I don't want even suggest that into his head that are you can't turn it over why worked out ideally an idea I noticed I think that's election made last inaugural could be a little better what either but I don't like are right here that's all he's saying but it's still the Red Line and had a good is that a good good coaching to tellem is most states eventually do away no idea how to do or don't just say go ahead it's OK keep on trying to beat up tonic guy is actually so much easier I think to doing the senate -- I mean I'm not a coach so you meet now and you'd know more about this to me. But a good thing you say there or did the general messages like tough breaking go get us on back. But that's what I do but not that situation that situation was really difficult maybe one out of twelve he might Poland and but in the meantime they're gonna start of the pocket most cases prejudice there are so far. For your goal the only the brits are easier to senator 34 that it's again it's about understanding to meet hockey is us and is always beholden to the result as opposed to what actually. As a result result right there with a goal a goal there aren't the league leader in turnovers is Brent burns and he's the MVP. Of the league leader among forwards in turnovers as good drawl Erik Karlsson right hasn't but just on the turnovers just do forwards the top three. Mike you'd just. Half and all and all gamblers you like you just now gambler I'd like Jack and Jack Lambert and that's okay I I don't want to lose our part of his game no I don't get better. But Ali mass when it's brought me a bone a little bet yeah well you got to come. This is I mean it just can't sit address Truman and everything is off as from the moment you hit the I. You've got to chip and a little bit I'm not talking about blowing his game over the side just. I hear you don't standing around wondering what to do in your loans are now maybe. Since you guys are sent him down on the coaching and the general managers and I'm not. Disagreeing with you yeah you know this does not into a vintage season for the general manager of the coach but. You you at some point. You would think. With all the teaching. From three coaches. Took them to have coaches manage offer long time that in fall off a turnip truck and they're good coaches all three elements matter of fact. You've got a defense of coach has been a coats NHL for years he understands the game and I'm sure he's not giving anyone bad advice how to play neurons on. At some point don't you catch on and and get better give betters an individual and that's it as a team. What bothers me is this team. Is no better and they were in the first game of the season that's what bothers me and I know I know they have good enough coaching and all the fans are gonna Julia here that. Yeah I think they're good map I think brought me as. What I say early in the season but this in two things the defense is Tuesday you've got no one to get the puck up to Jack cycle soaring put a show lineup that there are so OK that was my first point. The other point was. Defensively. There. Yet that's the Antonio and the other thing why it's. The coaches haven't got a good enough group of players. To turn into something really spectacular. Get away from it but they get away with it on certain nights you're really a good they've. Once some huge gains this year beat some terrific hockey clubs. But they didn't do it in a consistent basis so what what is this consistency so Mike goes into his bank and says let's see Mike who would you learn about this games are you learn about it. The yacht. Are all the good players I played showed up and played every night. And they're really good every night the guys that didn't do it we're not very good hockey players there are recent blow every so now you have a team. That's really the highlight real this year. Of under achieving a lot of times an inconsistency now for two years. So were you going with that so here's my question do you how would we know of the coach was not doing a good job. Well I think because it isn't it isn't I don't always is why did they or Jeffs is like a bad culture that's see that's the same type of situation but what type the team is ago. How Mitt meet this however I mean this team just isn't very good hot and clearly on how to coaches get fired them but that's all we go that's an automatic. The coach goes and and the general manager goes two or three years later Joseph manager always gets an extra two or three years but the coach goes straight away. While amassing Golan is not going to be the guy is not going to be an Abbas. So. They both know. How brutal this game can be I mean if there's there's no cut and dry either if you don't win you move along. It's that simple pure win yeah and have a contract for two or three. He was carried by superstars in this previous job however any west to a certain point however there was a year where they lost both of them and they still won a lot of games. These guys kind of bought intimate. I do is pretty good defensively not not great but good enough. But these were this crusty old Crosby's yes I mean is that that's following Sam I can even be half as good as Christ be in your console but for goodness sakes. Except this from the coaching staff picks except this is you're you're learning process that you move along as a player that it just can't be. The parking booked through the whole team every time you get it. I wonder Chris Paul did your candidates for the injured and lots of you did it every time I think that's because it is now within it I always in the dot. I don't think they're that bad they come up guys up for the the I know with the canned because they've seen I watched it. Maybe he can because if you gonna try to do it all by himself. You're you're still my going to win no one man wins a championship Earl gets into the playoffs. It's never have I've never watched it a lesser goaltender gets absolutely crazy angles on a run I'm lose one other comparison to make your unity he said that the people years ago what he said the that he were. Playoffs remember the famous Jim Mora rants not why not spread through layoffs and talk about why people forget what that was about. Here's the full rant it's the opening to a press conference and I'm I got a question about Michael that spins off of this the Jim Mora playoffs rant. Uprising in this dude. It's okay. I don't care who we play whether it's high school team a junior college and college team much less and and a belt name. When you turn it over five times. Interceptions and one touchdown three others and the opposition to set up touchdown you can be anybody has talked about anybody. And what that disgraceful. Performance in my. We threw that game we gave it away might do and we on the brink in game. In my opinion that's good. You know it's understandable why. I only go crap I don't know who they felt we think. And that that's the same day as playoffs. And this is to be a bigger point and we will see how this ultimately plays out. You know always you know who threw those four interceptions. Peyton Manning. And sometimes I think the coach has to be Smart. If you're the coach and Peyton Manning's on your team and Pete Manning doesn't like you anymore you know you're not the coach. So your day and miles much you might totally subscribe to like make indicator earning it you call him out and often public. He decides he is a want you to the coach. I know we don't like debt in title young players and kids like that but this was dug her own fight with Jerry Hughes this it. Coaches don't run the shelter like I call you think he's good player I do this and I'm not saying he he can't be criticized. My once in his you don't know autumn along. That if you once you go public once Jim Mora did that the Peyton Manning what you think Peyton Manning's response was like. On the number one pick I'm gonna take this organization places I'm young I'm learning at four picks it happens and he survived and Morgan and Manning went on I would appoint its. Careful they enjoy America no way shape or form to be say. To beat him to agree with the cultural bit or threw four picks I'm sure he did you know but it's about opponents respect itself certain public is different everyone knows it's coach knows he's great it's about to like take Dwight take my shots in public. We went through this forget. Forget files and forget Michael go back to Lindy Ruff. When he got fired what was one of the things the players didn't they don't like being called out publicly you wanna do it behind closed doors if you would all day which she didn't mean written by of course it took so I mean listen we love it when they do it publicly fans like it it gives a window and how they're really feeling in there some credit for that. But. There's a reason I think coaches sometimes try to say as little as possible and keep him behind closed doors and. Great job business could pay that type money and thank god they're getting paid to take money because we get screwed so bad we're playing and I mean this makes up for all the years ago filthy rich on our backs. And it's too bad we can't take a little criticism especially when there. Not competing the way they should compete. And be as successful as they should be. I think a little blame has to go with that and you're right but as far as the coast good wallop the SARS. Absolutely yeah if you don't. You better get along in your big players you're gonna have a problem you're going to be gone pretty soon or is just a matter of time cassette player will turn on it. They have a they have the ability to do that it's not just management BM. Unfair with players as players being unfair with management that's why they're always at loggerheads either one trust each other over a foot and a half on each side. You know there's no trust there at all. And they talk a big game about there's been trust between the two sides but there isn't. So it's. It. Anyway said that's I think and on as far as I am glad that I but I you eat your right. About you better not lose your stars now the question now is what that type of comment after game without lose Michael I don't think so. If adult than Laura does she Emma I don't Chaman I don't think it would Jamont because all I know is that he's held at a hockey player. And I know who coached him since the first day he put his skates on here Bob and I know who may help make them play areas right now. No I you know the oil well you know I mean banning I don't I know is I don't edit it loses cycle but I'll go back to the barn already held the reins and pretty tight Ottoman just you know. Just don't get too far ahead of yourself either I don't think he loses cycle today I'm not gonna say that wouldn't happen down the road this continues but he got over you do anger. Yeah and you're GM and maybe your own hurdles that guys who fired and the other media but maybe your GM. Will applaud you for it. Yeah I don't think that GM is would agree with him. You sing it now I think I would think yes I doubt they're telling us coach I would tell the GM's sinking our tell the coach wanna get on somebody's case. Go pick the rest of the roster that dead weight I would. On the Wednesday disagreeing with there's a lot of dead or what but it has been cleaned up on and he's gonna have to clean on a night when they gave up six even strength goals and Mike. We're just has rattled off of how horrible because there and hasn't but there happened off their defensive zone coverage this season at times is abysmal. No what are. I don't care that's given where this apparent stress that's again we're gonna sit here and stress all the best guy by far this team loses the puck somewhere between his defense of the line and the rebel I'm not losing it over this. What are reset what Jack did. He turned the puck over as far as I'm concerned he should've tried to walk through that maze. And it was going to be amazed what he'd be the first guy the other guy I was ten feet away from and there's guys will open in the third guy. It was he wasn't gonna get through that time. All I'm saying is that he's still gonna have to learn. And he's gonna have to learn to given goal. And he's gonna even get better offensively when he learns a given goal and it's very good rhetoric now has that Islam actually given gul has elects a map play yeah. You didn't deserves. To be criticized like any other player would probably be criticized that why did his name come operator wait while in my mind. If I won't I thought the team was going pretty good at that point I a discreet era that period it was really good the first 567 minutes. And then back on that let's go. Well after that and thinking I'm tied the game the cure him why such a price and I know them out and I guess almost unfair maybe maybe you had this discussion when Perot was playing I've no idea but they came back it's not like. Michael turns it over. And in Philly roles five goals on him over the next two periods they tied it at one. And they tied it at two and then they decided not to defend anybody in their owner and and as you are listening when the pain for a play defense or not in his. I mean they won a playoff that doesn't mean in his contracts and you can't please don't IB. A little dull lot again yeah I'm not Tonya. I don't give a crap and all big article there's offensively don't make that decision I'm pretty close aren't I'm not gonna lie I was lying I'm pretty close to not worrying about Jack Michael's defense at all. Could care less he went to sell you trophy in his career. I'm all about this guy's gifted offensively and he's gonna carry the puck. I love you Jeff Gordon ticket so when I live with what dilemma the us I mean if you have no. If you're not aware of your game I understand he's aware of his game I would say that I defense doing like I think. I think he should be improving at this point I think maybe she tries to make that play. When it's not not necessarily the smartest play because she knows. Which would you gonna do we given the puck to fully you know Georgia bureau I think the time to think about something like that he knows it was teammates aren't gonna what do you tell your teammates with so what are you turning into a lone wolf Eric may exact is that the story that this whole organization depends on Jan Michael well no they got asked why are big yes they all every so many good players bass player so take the is a game breaker yes right so try to make a play there. But it doesn't work at slot. But it could play the part is that what the hell it doesn't matter what it's like the place in the neutral zone is up Jack claiming it all he could slam. Bilateral himself and I would say take it off when you wouldn't you be angry at Mike as a coach what should be bigger with Michael not. On defense along the wall after that turnover than the turnover it's your way far more I like Jack. Have a little more battle of the defense and then after you turn the buckle Sonia would not that you'd you'd admire you might turn out supply didn't Wear turnover at all I was angry about his play in the. I got on the wall. I'm I'm such a big fan of this kid I wanted to do so well that and so sensitive to seeing them put as full game together. Dallas towards offensively. And I seventy turnover right right now it's like ninety him. He's got to pick it up now I didn't like either I thought he is very it was a very foreplay and both goals yeah. And if you want me to come on here and tell you right now that I just wanna grab the parking go all the time and. If he gets in that situation again or can't do it again. Again you know and that tells a story maybe with a better team he doesn't make and I don't think he he would in the same situation he wouldn't do that right. It would when the team get a bill making its sides and angles on. That's just pick your spots a little better OK I wanna be full board going offensively yes yeah. OK we agree with the gimme 3040 Saturday. Number of respectively 9 o'clock the other blew up the commercial breaks are definitely there we got time to go you got let me let me get a break and our Roby is Cherilus at the one goal show. 8030550. Q join us here on WG. The broader security agency you know they poke out of on the floors dribble back. Live a long shot baseball. Then went right between the legs and at the end of rubber bladder. And I agreed it was the one who was kept in front of the net to get his stick got it. Batteries eighth goal here they flyer fans you can get short season tickets by costs on sorry for those last night but as things. As I said do something about that blasting you wanna do is take. But the best hockey market when it comes to your ratings of games involving anything not involving their team. And give them the other team's broadcasters on every night Russell. There you know those gains net right perfect let's let's take bump the American way and I love the NHL and make them watch the flyers broadcast yet when a great idea. You're right Mike did it tells on top of everything I Roby when it's here's the one goal show. You you wanted to bring up some other stuff from the league GM meetings they really haven't done my. They talked about I mean make up right now like that I think about some off what they can slow down a bit. Are you likely get rid of this. Suffer McKeon I don't look how talents muddy field a book that minor change to where they were gonna move the Blue Line. Vote in the air right so that like you could drag your foot but an FBI on the ice skate up in the air when I don't is that okay. Does that change began their much rhino but you guys saved their borrowings and I just. You know the outsized. I think you can make that call I think you get the one thing I'd do likely area they're talking about profits. But what more offense in the game yeah he's take the faceoff dot in the offensives on the move to the December sentiment accurate that you certain ethnic want to circle and let it. Mr. riddle it's the one little thing home why I put my trust me like what they're looking profits are not looking profit anymore and there is now. And I'm prime whether it. Most of the fans want more offense but I'm okay because limping and I'm winning a game they played defense well yeah of course you can I would know how I wonder how that would. Ultimately work all the sudden a fine I did have a defense of zone draw. I have to worry about pulling it back into my own goal. Every time pretty interesting and free ice in every puck that there was a lot of young guys that there you can face the pocket and in which case. I don't farmers Obama defensive bright I'm. I'm now losing every draw on purpose and trying to hack it out right away and if you if you do that now. This eye is not a rise up like eagle for that you're successful I just think it's such a drastic change that there would be a lot of side effects would come of it that we wouldn't want and I think there be a lot more offense I think they're below converging on the mat. Off that face are there be a lot of shots from the point. Lot more blocked shot as it sounds trying to get it through to these somewhat common goals I don't want biggest problem is it always obvious from the apartment. If you win the drug goes back to the threats or what charges and just fired and there are going to freeze it you. The drop in write and call me you know sometimes it goes UN goes and goes out yeah away and you know that's your slippers are not a good site etiquette where it. Do you did you know that listen now how how they put it is this not creating offence they're trying to limit defense that's how they phrase that there I hear one of the things they talked about the idea of limiting block shots like you won't you can't go down on the ice to block shots at him. I ghosts are actually that was brought up on long time you know propped up but then. Maybe Scotty your summer currently. Suggest in your via. I don't know they find a way you know they they'll find a way coaches always find a way to win because they don't win the jobs and in jeopardy. I mean there there's things like that that's offside and now what do you think the coaches turn that into. But timeout yeah Salgado and at halftime of that challenge last final door you're as Utah and the same time last night was it was ridiculous musical isn't it should be a penalty should be a delay game and you always find a way you can achieve your you know. I don't know but the stuff cheating you know try your bending the rules and stream them to yours as you get no question it's the hearing a lot of people like their jobs and like the eight. Otherwise a miserable job. Boy there was one of the things from the GM meetings or wanted to ask about. And for the life of me blocking shots I don't know. I think that you know what I I got now last night I will say this last night there were goals there were shot there were shots getting through. A lot of them were from Philly. Point shots are getting through my my biggest problem is when it is just it deals too hard to get shots through the net especially point shots there's always. Shot lanes are blocked there's a scrum in front of the net it's so hard to get things through the sabres had an idea that you limit particularly terrible they they don't then he did it ever appointment cake and and the other side is they take good shots or Brett look at Philly got. It seems like Philly was blasting away easily from the point in getting shots through last night. I'll tell you the sabres shots. With second micro morning else. Behind late in the game. In before it got to hand. The group of third period. Other routes alignment I think once you move up the ice when they're down two goals. There wasn't even. Wasn't even I don't president even thinking about going up the ice for the puck. Helmet that you can mount Sinai school of ask a question about that is a possible then I'll smile late into the bass player after the first period because of internal work with so that defensemen don't wanna do that they wanna get yelled at me like they are still to play it once they've been playing it zoom after refers period for every game because they've never done it. What do they aren't very well it sure that's what I mean I'm getting along give me an arrow right after that but that's why people for a girl give me a while Erica. I ask goddesses like they couldn't that be that that's part of the cycle discussion is. If you're cold just harping on that mistake is harping on every time player dollars. Aren't you mentioned after the gates Eric he was out it went in our data gave gave the reason they thought I had but it changed the game is the greater idea of when to let any player went right gamble and why not gamble so many years and he's just in addressing don't make any public especially with fewer starts. Well I did I come calling about my it's a bad idea where I am right or wrong in terms of the job future for coach. It's never get a hit go to Iowa's Jacqui is going to a man is innocent quote you I do your job which you have to do. I'll try to improve mine. You do and only Kim looked me I'm due on the bass like him. You know do what you have to do police who have collection in the seventies punch. If you called tactical ploy whatever if the guy it's like well OK Lloyd yes they're well guys picking a fight with you publicly coach. Fine if they called out Jill their parole publicly at probably would've been a good idea. Actually Bert was called that. On a few locations that's probably not a gun to do. It did didn't seem to bother him and me I don't think he really didn't I don't. I don't expect Michael to be negative at least you know to be set back CP UK the problem. I hope he doesn't that mean like I loved him right I think he's gonna he's give him credit his defense if I was part of his team yeah one of his teammates. And I'd be upset with them you know. So come on you kidding way it would need to we need you taken into doing get a bit thin skin. Can't even you know me whisper. Just good good good all the time he nobody's got a good now he is dating ones or bring in about our rights failure of the problem I got the thin skin I let Jack. It. This team it's upset taken ever go watch the victim the video today. And start put numbers on the board of all the guys that made mistakes last night. A lot of them and I think you're still blowing this whole thing out of proportion of miles from what his answer was yeah the other do it over again. And if he knew was gonna come back enemy probably would've thrown out this way. That may guess within reason we want him to gamble and go what the pot chair but just. You know give a little more thought to when you do it as this and we have never blown anything up report no that's what like this that we never take it is ever run with an out of control or if you didn't didn't nobody listening. Thank you mr. we've got to make Iraq general rove was a pleasure Jack in the goods economic it always function there Iraqis are excellent screeners are always say at a discreet theater statement. Tie it comes the brakes on. We we we it's okay Mike that's what you always bring up passion and us until it up. Mike Bliss you're the one goal show on WGR 8030 pocket to join us 888552. For fifty we'll get a sneak a break in here. Got some calls to get you that's awesome. And we'll talk more about Michael in the game last night about those post and comment that you missed them to chip speed as well. Here on WG. Tuesday and barely come back can you still only five point so tomorrow are usually of course from. To disappoint start and after I was hit. Right captain sabres up 215 and two of their last eight games since that win over Saint Louis two points out of a wildcard they were one point out of the wild card and two points out of third place. After games on February 18 going into that Sunday game against Chicago but. There were games in hand with the other team that's how close they were point wise in the race before the lost the Blackhawks and then the the slump after the virus and other. Seven points out of the wild card and eight points out of third place 8030550. Join us get some calls here like showbiz Tweeter question. Which sabres player has had a better season than expected to name a Saber skater attending a better season was expected to. You don't want I'm looking at the roster. Cain. And in the can we do what he did. Point to even strength goals never would've said that. Mean look at the rest of the roster. And confusion. I mean we're not talking like daily like call ups right. I would probably say. Well Michael's averaging born again Michael little bit better. We thought Michael I'd go to my guess is seventy yet he still might end up of and a seventy point pace but he's at what forty what do you have 45 and 46 who is just a shade under reporting and so Michael Cain. Anthony tweets info Leno which you safely know. I didn't that you would've gotten ten goals right where the at 1011 goals double digit there or not but put him on the list. Was debating what I put where's the line in there that they know what it puts so much on his shoulders I think that's another guy like a rally Bobby wearing down from all the ice time. So came with the first guy and then eichel and cheerfully knows a good third choice what about you there's my three there's my three beat anybody else not it at that. This bad data say Lennar. I Aggies were played OK I think that would have been a good nominee but you're right well and I laughed I don't wanna say that and the shoot outs are a factor in people in the wanna say that you know. But he said he Mike's question was skater so like I don't have to say. Leonard all that's right well Nelson Nelson save percentage was you know career was horrible so Nelson under Nelson's been much better guys careers employment chip. That's a that's maybe five guys. 8030550. To answer the in Orchard Park thanks holding on engineer on WGR. I know probably more guys acre farm called an offering up here. Are the first part of my partner for I expect out of rolled up like it's up to yet has law. And it's obvious line train is obvious Bert and you know I realize that we're out of order he might get quote be. But you know it's just it's a lot of lost at the outlook benefited from having a good record with Crosby and yet. The year after Barack rocket that but I thought about it yeah. Hire a coach Kirk getting that job here and just look better at least I think he's mediocre coach about it going now. And I think that it that we lost and I expect him to be fired at the B if not sooner depending on the result of the game. An and quickly the one dimension as far as going or that I think we have a drop off and get the job done that really do. There is in that way it was the ultra. The broken former shell what was our honor and whatnot and of course that these aren't these released Tuesday beat it and go beyond. Honestly beyond wrote the line and and maybe McCabe. We got a lot of all the belt so. Croce to go and dump it that way and I'm optimistic picture but I doubt that the about. Her. I'm a couple more tweets in one thing about the roster dead weight about the stat that saver for the second heaviest team in the league. Her right yet they know they really have a the second heaviest team average weight they put up on the broadcast last night I think the kings were won in buffalo was to connect. From the Bakken skaters that have had a better season than would have expected Gionta. And a three weeks Gionta just got very calm and the way hammer alt well I'm Gionta and the whenever brings an end yeah. Now I think that's correct yes definitely people would've said Gionta was shot after last year and now I think. Most would agree. Me the most but I think you can come back you know what I'd almost. I don't put him first on the list I think I would like you could expect you could've expected Michael's gonna take another step he's that talented. You could have looked at canes. History and said. If he gets me twenty to thirty goals I wouldn't be shocked I mean he's a good offensive player. Gionta I didn't see this coming from anywhere I thought his game would just gradually slipped. And by the end of the contract we'd be very happy to say it's time for Brian step aside about a wonderful career a big ticket in terms ups the definition of the question. Surprise factor. I think you could put you out the first on the list he's really not that far off from where you had been the last two years I just thought he would just keep slip I thought it would slip just really go down thirteen goals and 35 points total in 201415. Twelve goals 33 points total last year this year with. Fifteen games left. Fourteen goals and 31 points total so yeah I think Gionta is the is the right answer that defensively. You know like if the sabres were going to make the playoffs what I what what needed to happen was that cool cough needed to be the answer this. He would have a really good year and McCain had an anemic I think McCabe is a has had a pretty strong season. I think you also would need to be Goshen to stay healthy and play like he did the last half of last season now he was better but when last apple lefties when he came back ms. injury but he didn't. Step it up he got injured in when he's in the lineup he's up and down and cool cop has. I mean cooler cup has had. I can't tell you is that even a good stretch of games with the sabres when it's been a line of the season I could even name that. He might have a good night we hadn't even had a good week this season. Yes that. I don't think they have enough offense to to your second point they still rely. A lot on that power play I still think they're good enough five on five. They don't have enough even strength firepower I think eight. That they they eat the answering to many these games is. Don't worry about a number one power play's going to be on the ice for 3456. Chances tonight and animal will pop one or two and a net pay in a league where it's really hard to score. That power play goal our second power play goal. Makes a huge difference I think they still there's too much of reliance upon that they have the number and I don't get anything from the defense and etc. the line number one power play in the league. Right what's the blast on you check the goal scoring. Look at the goal scorer from the sabres defense. And compared to where you know other teams are reveling they don't get enough profits from the guys on the Blue Line as well. 8030550. Join us OK when we get back we got folks call it and that's great we'll get your calls. We even talking about the post game comment last night and Dan miles. And we've played part of what he said back on Valentine's Day about Michael and what they want for Michael. When to carry the puck went make a smarter play may be given up chipping in what have chip it in what have you. And I thought maybe we're doing damn miles an injustice I wanted to and we're playing part of the response. But I wanted to play the full answer it to make sure we didn't hear a time and space thing anything through to make sure that we have. Everything out there for that responsible go back we'll listen to what because we talked extensively about Jack after the Vancouver game. And the turn over by the side of his net. So we'll get before response to what was said last night we'll talk more about last night's game with you as well whatever else on your mind still weighing on the Tyrod front you wanna go through some football rumors with the bills. 8030515. To join us on WG.
