Okay instigated showing Andrew Peters programs a rob ray joining us here in studio WGR Sports Radio 550. And MSC. Can I just days. How bad does that tie. At I like the light colors holes you've got a couple great suits to Wear them at all you know area but high rate there. I couldn't even I couldn't concentrate only thing. How about what I did from the kids. Hubble what he did say. Team didn't come out with with my job they seem like they were kind of beat down east now all of I like listen I wanna make one thing clear I did you like Whitney the Lori tried to do with this yes. Yes and we comment about that on the radio margin nine to strike me in early in the game and the building and going and get people into it any went that extra mile to try to make sure that everybody with you know fired up for this one because you know he knew. That's why. I don't know maybe. Understand the comment to say they were beat down and they work without the template I thought earlier that hockey game they did pretty decent job. And you know there are doing the things they wanted to. And you know it just kind of stop all of a sudden. Our hey remember those days can restart that. Fight from the beginning I know the people that go on the radio or not Camille see this but. Starting the fight from the beginning. You have to watch Brian Gionta sitting on the bench soon as the fight starts everybody jumps up and the old man sit there. Still seated on the bench just front row seat just Ive tool for us still like not even move it one bit just love in the whole thing got so you know get stung by standing up there. The years staring at just looks like he's not. Organized team enough of these it is I don't know I don't. All players know how to react or respond about his own anymore you know what because we've talked about this before we used to. Play that game in the coaches used to say early in the game go and fired up Obama intervene here but it does not coach. And and that's nobody's fault that says the game has changed and it's doesn't happen but I thought nicked an excellent job they're trying to get things going and I I I don't know if they. They were beat down from the and I think that you if you played back to back in the name before your Pittsburgh and that happened I think Morton anything. If you didn't have the time in between deterrent but it just roll and talk about it now and be gone and prepare. There and maybe a beat down but I think in this case it is normal for was I think it is they they gave what they had them all the sudden. You know Philadelphia is desperation that you mourn urgency and political where's this team going. Late. They've lost the article was gone they've won one game out of their last seven. You know Dan is saying that the team was not ready for the start of the game. Who is that on on the players is that on the coaching stopped tumbling what. You know what has to get here both we've all been in a room and you know that you've had that answered bad times and if you don't sit there and wait for the coach to commit and hey c'mon guys let's go and and and make this happen it's it's amongst the guys you talk amongst ourselves and and you know leadership within the room has to have a good feel for doing Kaiser corner what needs to be done and I think that is there enough of it. Is there enough leadership and that remind O'Brien Jiaka incident but one voice can have on different have another difference between experience. And leadership. Yeah I dip I like your ribs when that we knew were brought in made they had. Zero leadership in there and and and you're the only group voice and it was something that. You know you were you're looked at his home okay great 'cause we got it out now that that is here. And mammal. Can have all since you know what you know why because because he probably feels that. You know he's making five million dollars on the fourth line in that he doesn't have. The right to have a voice right now where I think the exact opposite this is where Eric I'd love to hear. About a guy like map Molson stepping up in the locker room and you know. But I again again there are other players too that just sometimes. It's hard for player internally to students are. Stand up and say something if they are either getting an opportunity to back it or know that they can't. Back. Here and I think that that fair I think everybody in the room knows him even if it's not happening for the player at this point. And maybe even this season every guy in there knows track history of everyone. And I'm Morgan down compared to five years ago Leo at Georgia France and even commander Cain Gionta. Not malts and all guys that you can go down the list that have been around Bogosian these guys have all got plenty of time Riley. Robin Leonard there's more leadership are there should be more. Guys that are willing to step up and and help load in and be that person then in a long long time. And maybe maybe the problem is there's too much of it or. The wrong messages being sent. I think a little bit of it too is some players are still trying to find their game and in that process you you can't know what sort of trying to simulate in their game the young kids that'll are no Erica but to be tighter Tyler Ennis is not. A young kid anymore he's trying to find his game he's he's struggling with trying to find consistency and where he fits in on the team. Yeah I think almost it has amazing leadership qualities but I think he's another guy right now that just wants to focus on trying to play good hockey if anything maybe if these guys maybe got more involved in that side of it would be in the room in in a leadership role it may help them. On the ice as well always. No way if they are or aren't but I know. Let's just say this it doesn't the play as a team doesn't it's it doesn't seem to indicate that that's what's going on. I Dan miles also had some comments last night about what seemed to be what seems to be a pretty hot topic today turnovers. And one of the players that we know is talking about is Jack cycle but here were damn miles had to say again. After last night's game. On the first go against. Yes. Intolerable. Not be ready to play or Bachmann is there it's. We're trying to go through three guys one on three in the neutral zone gets turned over those in the as a result exactly that. All right so we we know what he's talking about there right sold. Here's the thing so he makes that comment that's going to echo through the team you think that bothers Jack. I think it does at this point. Why. Why why would it why should it bother him. Let's comes back to what we we talked earlier that he choose and Jack and ample and you know he's had these conversations I'm seen with Jack and yeah there's plenty of guys that you didn't even put on that same list turnovers are you know incident even the second goal as Marcus when you know he's been around long enough from. Turning over the puck inside the blue liner raid at the Blue Line was worse than what objective. Jacks were doing what Jack does hang on the clock work its way up the ice yeah they got he got stopped that time. But. When you say there's a difference for calling out Jack and others calling on Marcus. Giving users use that as an example of that that rush is an example sort moralists being directed toward Jack himself and says. You know the team in general. Colin assign racquet abuse. You see that Michael Moore of birth who's having a child with Bruce's sister. And you should she do this is sister. They should look like Graco this is right for not doing in order wreck of goodness thank the lord she's beautiful. And funny in the net. The zapper almost an living room and on a sister's pregnant. Mean look it is. Anyway I think you got that 200 yeah. And that's why diapers. A positive note. Commuters waiting game last night 3.3. Guy. Rare night against the senators plus plus five that. While anyway com. I think piles of his comments. You know in regard to the first goal turnover and things like that are. Exactly what you mentioned and are you know it's it's a message not just to Jack to the entire team. You know because I said so earlier I razor in the four in the show here. If he uses another player rightly say he uses a third or fourth line dire another player. That can be deemed unfair that can be deemed a coach like finding you know you quietly they could use jacked on that page that. It's been he was notorious for that. If we column acts. And does that match and understand where did things that matter but well and he notorious for using a third or fourth line guy. As it's hitting him and putting somebody else in the lineup to try to send a message to his top two lines which was whatever. But that message. Was not the rate math may. As you know playing tonight because Marisa and spunk from five games and from him that's. All okay that article over really well gotten. But that's so I think sometimes you've got to. Go to the heart and use use the writing are we doing to him too much of that I think I think that's where they get thousands to the point where. The season has been so tough for them. Not nearly what we all expected or thought it was going to be that he's his notes say gathering more. It's like we're we're. Every day multiple times that day you've got to come up with something that you've got guys like us that are dissecting like crazy. Well he said here analyst rollback three months ago on this is what he said and it's it's tough. But what you gotta be so careful sometimes of what you say and uses them in any of the he tries to but it. Are you sit him Connolly streak was in 0506910. Non not something like that you tell us to get our facts straight ahead in the military of the year it is an industry. Chaos you're so it went how many millions of other. Fifteen maybe fourteen and only you know the hey did you hear about the Swedish officials. How to play like we demand. They wanna develop their young players. Is set up and going to the HL stay in Sweden waving about that. I don't know. That is an American Hockey League got much better than this week so well that's the thing don't you don't hear LeBron or anything you're thinking Mimi is is the year Ghana have an opportunity and a play more than American Canadian style the year and playing in the you know want. That's it the year did you hear all your skills are still there are over there. The previous thousands seen bloody. Diallo. Yes it is other courses implies. Either at the inaugural via some of them burned the Olympic. You know what name me a Swedish player that does not play that they're the closest thing. Two I I consider Canadian or American style than any country out there. Not theirs there or whether they play us right away doesn't mean that's playing in the Swedish elite league is going to be better for their development. For the NHL. I mean maintain they put me Lander for instance like. This year this year my opinion Kate probably could have gone back to junior but. But the fact of the matter is that it's better for him to play in the HL that it isn't junior than it is in Sweden simply because. For what rob just said he gets to learn. I guess. The organizational system yes okay so he gets to be taught. How he's going to be playing if and when he makes it to the NHL where he'll be slotted as. Good point there now are so what if your Russian is it better to stay in Russian plants HL. We I don't know editors that they don't. A Tammy and Aaron looked like he had a really hard time wherever he was it Chicago forty years old when he got liars always twenty theory. And he came over and that's the whole bloody point that what sweetened saying let us have our players we will give you those players when these guys are mature and ready to play so you have the asked when kid that's playing over in Sweden right now. And he's been he's been lights over there because you're there on the same player on the ball closer roses he has worked on bark are. No probably not but he's still gonna be pretty darn good player recently it would have been better players playing with Kane Toews to right. Guaranteed he would double vengeance. I salute to us whoever's hardships. Careless. Pierre LeBron tweeted out. Tim Murray on the HL. In the context of the Swedish presentation today. To Murray's quote we consider the HL the best development league and I agree that. And and it and then NHL team is gonna wanna have control over that player you want to have the big issue or abbey or injuries and all like who knows how injuries are taking care of over in Sweden if you would who notes. Which Sweden wants a North American player to stay over play in North America if they were being developed or drafted into a Swedish league absolutely not they would want to bring them over. Played him in their number to leave your number three Lee too would develop on the big guys get a feel for the big guys the time and space all that's possibly gradually. Improve an end and get better to have him ready to step in. This is just an argument to keep their players home in my opinion so you know good lord I I don't. You look at Daniel Alfredsson did he come over at age eighteen. Noise Dickey came over a little bit later he came over when he was twenty and I think sometimes Saku Koivu in Finland came over when he was 20/20 one years old. These players stay in theirs in their countries that how of great development systems. We're not talking a Slovakia we're talking as Sweden and Finland. And I don't I don't see a problem if those players wanna stay over there a little a few years longer before they come or the national hockey errors and here's another I understand the dynamic of having those players here so you can make the decision. This players plan really well we'd like gimmick couple games he how he does bring them up for a couple games get let him get acclimated into the NHL sent him back down get him the minutes get on the confidence I understand all. At a aspects of both sides here have good points I would rather send you sit on the fence along I looked at eight days we will. You know will see in time obviously but the Lander were obviously lake we're talking about this because Neil and there's probably one of those that one of the players are talking about. I would much rather seen the Lander. Go back in dominating junior before I see him go back and play over in Sweden. Simple as mean in my area brimming newly. Example it's gonna play attorneys he's playing well. You know his confidence is going to be skyrocketed the you know it was when he got here razor here's our here's something from Gary Bettman Arizona coyotes cannot and will not remaining Glendale. What are your thoughts on that. River and I had a hell of a time out there whether every American that their have a mineral rate wrote that new ring downtown. This meant. But the Glendale thing didn't work as it's been a disaster. It's about time they fix this is crazy how much money put in that area tragically little it's like a small little Vegas. Walking around all the shops and stuff like that in the middle of nowhere and there's no and they thought walking to a restaurant that's all that B that would have been developed all the weight on the highway and it's it is like this little plantation in the mainland it's you can you can put Florida on the same list when they -- Or Miami I'm sorry. To our troops progress team thing that the fans aren't there they may be sport team but they're not in the buildings have problems with Arizona team that you have your team note in Glendale. And where's all the money. Where's all the people with all the money during Scottsdale 45 minutes away. What in God's name are you building that's Nevada was in the middle of nowhere you know it was built up a few and if you build it they will come what you actually no that's not true in her life together and ability gathering downtown. Down along the canal. That was at the back down where the people are what do you do with that stadium but sobering sobering American League team in that something for sure well no other Ottawa's American League team is going to Belleville. Which I think is there an old ruling earlier rate idea they just fourteen million into it to the velvet valuables that which oh team laughed. They've moved American League in this case are going to be the Belleville bulls Leno. Going to be the vulnerable again senators primaries and its own. He's the more and more teams are gonna do that I mean if true on all with their affiliate I mean it's almost kind of started Philly at Philly with there not there anymore. The travel of the of the conference I think it's important to keep them as close as possible. Well there was a time or Anaheim was calling dollars up from port. Yeah I mean. Travel across the country you know better are required to get more opportunity if you look at buffalo. Perfect situation with having the American League team down dot com. And in Rochester and also other other East Coast Hockey League team being in Elmira. I mean. Where Toyota just built for young players and it you know you're you're more apt to call them up it's going to be convenient and if it's a pain in the butt to get them there now let's deal with what we got here Crowe who are some of the young toddlers risen but up from Rossi went this year like there's Bailey Baptist east. And all that Carrey's. Dinged up Evan Rodriguez's. Made it I thought Daley and his toughest game since being called up last night. And I think a big part of it might the the ice I don't think day he's used to playing no sparingly and only played a few minutes and I think it affect his game. And by not playing with the upper Echelon guys it's it doesn't help his game. You guys fast here is gonna get in on top it's gonna create some opportunity away what about it was tough I'm not saying Iran embassy in just looking at his ice time we played through a little pockets well management. Eight on management he turned over the puck probably more in the amount of time he played last night he turned over the puck like three times in one shift in a small little. That little area he just seemed like he was fighting the pock. Didn't seem like he had. Any momentum into his game there's no there's no real structure and his game it looked like kind of struggle and he there's a little bit off timing was opt in or heading and the hours checking his mail and then you know and that. Okay Athens we believe me. Most of my games like that so. If it was noticeable last night with him because I think in the games that he's played. He's got an opportunity to play with some great players and you can see he uses his assets that dynamic speed. I think with a little bit more time a little bit more understanding of the game he's going to be pretty good player when. Like crystals game. Have a elected. A company minus five years I think that. Zach Bogosian with a minus five. Earlier in the year. Killer the author break anything possibly. He was it that. That's almost impossible. Killer it's an absolute killer Rogers possible for you to make up would risk the line. It was minus five before the game and he's being chip away chip away all year long. Getting that mine down. He gets to a pretty reasonable spot where you know you got sixteen teams laughter up like that you think. If I even yeah even later. The home one game MacBook line is Claude Giroux even at home minus seventeen on the road. Not one. Not so for a close now. But who looks a plus minus means nothing. On got a phone call razor quicker. Danny Cheektowaga Dan you're on the line with Andrew Craig and rob go ahead. Hello I hear sort of the talk about or defer to play our defensemen are growing pot that is not enough standard when they're throwing it behind the net. Our forwards are turning it over all the time in and our defensive zone. Our assessment of flight to get the puck and don't turn over 34 straight times brought up that a neutral zone and the other teams coming back. Are met most of in the last two games this year they had at least five goals. Is that Barings chances and as far as the eternal. Brian Gionta. He turned the puck over and then he got dismantled the front that and Phillies score critical. In the Pittsburgh game writer and covers meant disparate. And our time we go to break when he gets the puck management is is and I huge problem for this team effort. Pretty much all season and year where you're starting to see too is guys that. You don't expect. To make those mistakes here at markets win last night place on a PowerPoint try to get the puck out didn't get a note once he hesitated in my where you waiting for. He got all the time in the world the appropriate two seconds. And he stood there stood there and then eventually to Philadelphia Flyers converge on me try to get noted doesn't but. So many times we have difficulties getting you know because that the work we're always thinking too much. And looking for him maybe there's something here. That it does not react you gotta get it 200 feet unit of the zone to stop stop thinking and I think that's been a big problem gonna get to break here while we return we'll talk more about karma David and Jack eichel also what makes the Stanley Cup contender robberies in the house here. He's been to a final. WGR Sports Radio 515 MS jewelry back. I. This place was. Like the Roman coliseum if people want one. A lot of motion but for some guys on the guys we made the light changed. And we're all fired up on that. Had to sit before long we're going next ice beautiful game. Like sort of three smaller players thinking. And maybe I made a mistake. All right welcome back to the as skaters look forward to that that's the beyond blue and gold little. During the first intermission and yes reason you monitoring. And all that would be Saturday. It's there and carries it to that Saturday. A you're right in between the benches there he played for both of those guys. Norton did you play from Murray now. Know what John markers general manager in Ottawa when I was there. Obama whose coach. Jack Martin's. Chuck not jock or attack yeah. He called me up very well be robbery all the time of robbery yesterday. And need it he hated me he hated me. ESPN stats and information came out with me. Question and so it's not coming from odds it's coming from somewhere else and we're gonna actually have some public it will do a little buy sell or trade him by solar trade is presented to you. By Buffalo's sports go to buffalo sports freak them buy sell and trade good new and used equipment on McKinley parkway amber. Is Jack eichel having a better season in karma David. That's the question that was thrown out there and the reason why these this question comes out. Is because since Jack is returned he's put 46 gains eighteen goals 27 assists 45 points. Karma David since Jack returns which was November 29. 43 games twelve goals 33 assists 45. Points now some might say the cars play a better team as. More stylish line mates maybe some might stage the other for Jack I don't know what do you guys think this early pulling hairs here. They're turning us team William merely an individual game here yes we are this that lets that the game is and there's always a much better overall season. So in turn it may help. Bring David. Play a little different I think Jack on his side is carrying the load on a night so. As far is. More valuable to their team. I would picture. At this point where they'll question. If you did better player. You can have an argument until you're blue in the face on these two guys both are super elite. One was drafted 11 was drafted to you're going to be sitting here having this debate. 345. Years down the line and tell people get bored with it just like Ovechkin and not Crosby who has the better player now no one even talks about the many more now our onto. Jack cycle and and mean David. And yet toss in that kid up the road with Matt Matt I'm lining and line and so this is going to be going on these next. These next a number of years were in me talking both these four players and it's you're gonna be watchable points and statistics. Individual statistics to see who's better but the the reality is this is not. There's that there's never been an individual that is won a Stanley Cup. This is a team game and if you have a goal late great will locker room. Inside that's height that enjoy coming to the rink every day to work hard battle in and spend time there. And and win hockey games together that's what you want right now. I don't know how's how's the Buffalo Sabres were locker room I don't know. Until. Toronto. Winnipeg buffalo Edmonton one of them win a cup. All these guys are just going to be compared to edit and there's going to be no separation amongst them. It's kind of work crime you look at crowds and a veterans that area it's gonna be evenly Crosby had the one cup there was still kind of is he better is any better and then I feel kind of like he won the second cup last year and a much different fashion lead in the first for the points they're going to have seen enough and was pointing guy last year. In the playoffs. But the fact of the matter is that. He ends up winning his second Stanley Cup you know and that's where that's where you separate everything on championship whether you're going have to review put Ovechkin time Margaret greatest goal scorer. Title should be. But he might get out come this year though his team is gonna get charm and an iPad opens a whole different argument if it happens so that the buy sell or trade let's go back to buy sell or trade by solar tree presented to you by buffalo sports on McKinley parkway. Michael's having a better season comic David Kregg sir would you buy sell or trade. I penetrated. Because you know you can't they're both they're both doing their best for their hockey team. May David's playing I think with more established players and I may be I couldn't say that but. Leon rice titles turned India unbelievable player. An unbelievable player in this league very much like Sam Reinhart on our team who's in who's out working to get there also. Patrick maroon was a third fourth line player in Anaheim for years. And he's having by far the best year of his NHL career obviously due to playing with two superstar hockey players and that lines working well Jack rate now is. Most likely playing on now on a regular basis with Sam. But the left wing. Has been a barrage of different players so there really hasn't been any true chemistry. Bill yet. For that line so I think Jack and comic he would have had real nice season so far. It's hard answers. To buy sell. Examine I had I don't know Beisel trade means but. Amid a retreat for. On news he won two. Intimate theater opera tomorrow. We give even bottomless and money are we to bottom do they wanna work or some kind of a deal but. I just think the boy you guys that back in the late eighties and Oilers player and I think about it and I. Are asking news is. Michael having a better season and it David if you if you say yes you're gonna buy it you disagree with you sell it if gets you earlier there. And you can be Halm he'd only like ideas don't country I don't touch when it and you and don't. Much. Credit seriously certain things. Hey I go to both them and both the team's goal as those individuals go if Jack's going to teams go one of them number shall. Last night is one of the few nights actually showed that. You know if when he's getting points in multiple points that we did that the sabres did not win. I mean David's the same thing that team is totally based around him and when he is why and then in other team's gonna have some sort suspect. But there's also times when Jack Michael. Offensively. It fuels and assess for three points and they're still losing because. There are some holes and the sabres now that need to be addressed moved I would like to see. Jack Michael surrounded with. You know two or three more guys. Some guys that maybe take attention away from him you know you look at you look at Pittsburgh pitchers go out one line with crowd on one line with Malcolm and one line with a castle. And then every so while I mean he mixes them up and you know Crosby's with. Ovechkin or with Malkin and you know there's just so many ways to use it sort takes the attention away you've got council sitting on a third line that's got close at thirty goals. It's its estimate and and this guy irate now he doesn't have that luxury EC's all he's a one man show. You know with other and you know Ryan Reilly and Imus and another line that but he plays so much and plays in different situations. Only kill and all that kind of thing that you know he's got a much different role than just strictly office for these guys. Razors and studio robberies here and see gators Andrew Peters Craig bay on WGR Sports Radio 515 amnesty. Call lines are open 8030550888550. To 550 razor you have. Probably the best seat in the house for every single game. Who's the best team in the NH RA now to you you're down price level who's the fastest which team is moving the park. That the most Crist who which team is is just playing in saint physical while talking like which teams can you hear talking on the ice. The most because that's those are the teams in the most of the things that are that good teams do that are we. The most impressive team watching start to finish with San Jose. Like the way they've played they've got guys that across the board offensively their good speed I think the fastest team. Could be the Pittsburgh Penguins. Not overly big but there are examples of coming and others on transition game is phenomenal when they use in the offensive zone or altered their all over the place. From Washington locally. Like I ask you seriously like I say I think this to be Washington's year reveal where we have switched channels on us. Probably about three quarters of the way through the season he was Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh to repeat. And I don't think he's just jumping based in the standings and he's jumping based on. It's all about how a team plays down the stretch right. And they have the team I think I think what advantage they're gonna have this year they don't have that big streak going I'm sure has lectured all hopi and winning whatever number games and was. All that is kind of gone and they're they're playing now and they're more. Are probably preparing more. For the playoffs right now because they have that luxury they can instead of years past. You know. Got to win the president's trophy got to finish first got to do this god is that. They've I think they've finally realize that all that stuff isn't that important. What is important is conditioning. And well being in and and health wise once we hit the class when expert Ambien and that rate for in mind and I think that. More than anything there they're preparing for that now. And sort of you know even a month on the road I also believe that Alex Ovechkin. The face of that franchise since he's come in the league. Does not have the same pressure I I don't Levy has the same pressure fell you know like when you watch him play in and he sometimes he was trying too hard he was trying to do things himself. He has a team right now that he's a piece to that puzzle they can work together. There's a lot of there's a lot of guys that you have to watch on the Washington Capitals it's not just their first line second line from the store Michaels. Their fourth line in Jay Beagle Tom Wilson and and and Daniel Winnick a great fourth line it is a power line they can score goals they're creative and their cup play against and that's that's where you're really gonna see. It's not just the top line yes they have to play well but it's. I think in order to win in the playoffs it's this it's not a vote your top players all the time they need to beast this support it needs to be four line team. It needs to be six defense. You look at the defense that they they have right now in all sooner Carlson. Niskanen. Oral off or pick and and Nash anchor. There's not a deeper Paris six in the national hockey when their goal. And about the Nevada their goaltending Maria he's let one go ahead on and on earnhardt's personal go back to the Jack and meet David thing. OV. Has been the guy that they've concentrated on for years you take him out of the equation it's not the same team. Now across the board who do you who who do you zero in on the same as Pittsburgh Pirates who do you zero in on and it allows those guys to play the game and I think that. The the younger you can do that for Jack cycle the more. Productive years you're gonna get from a you know these guys are over he's not getting into it so you know not the end of his career but. Not in his best years you know he's he's on the decline not that inclined rebel thing Albie was scoring 65 goals. You know eight years ago because he had to be that yeah it was so much pressure on him or he's now in a situation where. He is 21. He only has 27 goals this year but the teams in first place. There are tough team to play against because it's not just watching out so that while it's not just a score frustration growing ten guys process that I don't want him to think his shot he's not a guy that. That celebrate the fiftieth goal of his crew of the season. You know like he just won the cup when the route playoffs I'd like guys like Berrian in Vancouver and I mean you know he's scoring on tingles your typical year but will we get out of it we gotta Garrett got an underdog angle when we come back and wanna talk about a comparison more about Michael I don't Baskin. And why what I think could be even better make Jack more dynamic. Final segment robberies in that house here final signal last. Coming up here rob this where we'll shirt on WGR Sports Radio 550 and MSG. Yeah. We're back with more of the instigated it's presented by MP Carol hard. Welcome back final segment of the show robberies here WGR Sports Radio 5:50 am asked she Andrew Peters trigger radiance to gators. IA one it's a question out there to you guys just about Jack and all of that scan and one of the things are comparing the two that's not what I'm doing what I want assays. There's one thing about Ovechkin that I noticed he didn't he doesn't have the responsibility of being the sentiment. You know they try to one right wing and I'm left wing. And I know Jack has drafted as a senator but writer was drafted at this as a Saturdays playing wing not saying he should be cinnamon but on saying is that. Have you because there were considered or thought about what might be like to see Jack without the responsibility of playing center. Maybe CM model line with the Ryan O'Reilly. Or no it's I don't believe I don't I don't even when we're. The final round agreement on the left wing all offside wing yeah you're gonna put all your offensive punch pretty much on one line. Yeah I think that's something down the road I think you'd like to see that. You put him in that position to take the pressure from orbit by I don't know if you got that person now that. Which unity him off the line and we. Not listen I'm not I'm not suggesting the personnel you I'd feel you have a big man power to do different are you trying to spread Mota as much as bottles we got a little more offense and each line. If you start open those lines together like that it's. That's it's gonna get them. 1152 Craig what ifs or. I just think that Jackson young player he's still work in progress. Yet half to. Allow him to go through his. His bumps in you know hopefully learn from Sadiq. You're wrong on that yet. You think he would excel at least on wing or he's he's played center's entire life I think that Jack is is. You know the project if it hurts either project player in his defensive zone do I think that he can get better yet I think that he can get better he's never gonna be Jonathan Kaye is Herbert term corporate tar we're not asking Jack to be that. Rusting Jack to be a little bit more defensive responsible and I think that he can do that. As he grows as a hockey player and you never wanted to take away. Jack's biggest asset and that's his ability to. Pushed the puck on the forward line and and make dynamic place. I think he's I think he's right where we want him to be. Maybe a little bit more attention to detail and defensive zone and he would be perfect. Player but by putting them on the wing to I think you lose that. Part of Jack Billy estate you know last night picking up the puck coming up through the got to the ice trying to make something happen that way. You're not as apt to do that on the way you talk about him. All of messenger shooter he's not a guy that carries the park a piece CME chops the park property Woody's in mistakenly he's not that smooth player that's gonna penetrate the zone. Hey you go get it you did it in the zone and then give it to me that's the type of player he is I think you can be that guy on the wing a little more. Jack needs to have his hand on the puck listener and has a sentiment he's gonna have his hand on the park are Maury is is a winner. I don't I don't want anyone to misinterpret what I'm saying I'm I'm just I'm just suggesting ways to so refined. Just Maurer. Just try to produce more and again more the horses who he's going to be eventually surrounded by. Thing is though when you look at Jack right now on the last number of games since February 4 he's leading. You know the league in points and do you need more from Jack I'm not sure you need more from Jack you need more from others. Then you need more more back up more depth. You know others there are some players on this team that. Hopefully here shouldn't be back next year because this team needs to take a step forward taken a step forward at the John Murphy show we have coming operates a meanie band Austral and Jim Miller. And Donald Jones as you know is on there was John Murphy and they're gonna talk a lot about Anna felt free agency coming up and I think there was a big signing out there. Stick around WGR Sports Radio 550 MSG the investigators were back tomorrow 10 o'clock.
