Editor Peter's paper today Matty Ellis Craig talking about how much he got noticed him off the fifth they're good at it and how it let. If you're headed out as your praise gets through it's eight and I hate to located me it's okay to be popular Mario man. Wanted just pour gravy on you well you know she's heard that's. That's an honor okay you need to accept that and I knocked down a routine every game just those she anchors I don't know what they do to them. And they don't yet it did Malcolm little and Alec gravy in the French Fries and I and then obviously. Obviously degree V is a big party to they have special greatly here. And I and the guy who takes the catch up. Ball all over with the injury and the Fries to get a sausage in the peppers in your food or I don't use them via. I'm just Kurds and angry beasts with that ketchup revelations earlier today on notes Craig vs food. At the Greg verses and self target well fairness is in Montreal. How many peace is ever remember a place in Montrose called greasy spoon was by right beside the old form here. No. Wonder if you don't work in the morning drives and Brad Pitt. Brad Pitt. Film festival. Your personal test of. All right Andrew Peters Gregory de going off thrills here we're talking about. As collateral and it'll 305588550. To 550. And it felt free agency today and we're just talking about if it were any trophies see what will be your number one area I mean we actually have a Twitter poll up offense. Our forwards defense or goaltending we a couple of calls on goaltending. Majority of people saying defense and not many people of such forward. I'm myself being a forward I think I put a little more onus on the forwards. I think a lot of the defense struggles can start with the not just a lack of offensive production at times but the decisions that are made by the forwards in front of the Indian and the breakdowns happened from the goalie and so on and so forth. So I mean we're talking about USA forwards and things like that or are there any forwards out there that you guys would have to go after the ball through this roster to be forget about moving players around. Our other players out there that you would bring in and then maybe have to move somebody out. Just to make sure you got this player we're going through parts of US phase and there's few on there. Anybody Bure matting. Parlor together just actually moved at the deadline and in that would be too late king you with the Montreal the deadline. And based on an in his solid player you're playing your bottom six but here's a deal with and we talk kit we talked earlier above oh culture okay. It's as 12 cops in LA he's been part of a culture and I played for the kings in in seven away when their last place team in the seaworthy built in what they've built themselves and obviously this year. And on the greatest position of the rain out there and a dog fight. But you know you're looking at a guy that comes out of an organization. That has proven to be a winner that is one multiple times and I just think that the more of that that you can add outside of the playing element I mean because a solid player and he has been for for his time in the league. But outside of that. Bring in more experience from from winning culture to rub off on on the rest your crew especially younger crew that can really help grow so up front. Previous supporting cast piece that that I'd like to see. Rob river obviously obviously resource in your list that are gonna and I'm looking at summit on your your line up there looking at some of the gaps and obviously. Aside from. Bringing back and resigning it Gionta talking about bringing in new blood. Anyone out there I mean he he being Matty mentions Dwight king but. We're talking what nick Bonino twenty year old senator from the from the penguins. Com I I I definitely. I agree with Matty on that you think I think Dwight king all Matty sorry ripped to go along with that and a -- type guys of the two types of players if it's not a and you know that that building contender. I think so I think it helped give you. More pieces to a solid foundation work. Again I said it on the shall before that you don't want to quick fix you don't want the one and on playoffs and and the next year you slide back. You wanna set ourselves up. For year after year success getting into the dance getting deeper getting deeper at the end of the day but you'd put your team in the situation win. You have to have players like that that can help grow the rest of these guys that can help grow Jack Jackson elite talent. But he needs to learn how to eat he needs to learn how to win and guys like sand guys like restore you know the more of these supporting pieces that you. It in your culture that do things for the great way to go back to were talking bull before know how to prepare. And then take their preparation Gordon exe cute. And know what it takes to win. And you know more of that the the better off you're going to be because I I think up front. This team is deep. In terms of their their pieces or rather his proposals Jack's Hancock core. What and when I talked about the core I think it is all up front but I think that there's still learning that needs to take place public interest is there. Right now the his name for one. I think there's still. Identifying whether Americans can it continue to be a core piece or what they're gonna do at the end of the year I think there and we talked to voted the red at the deadline. Still I waiting to identify certain things had a heck of a year this year and continues to produce. But is she going to be a guy that. That remains in the core if he isn't then maybe he's a fifth person in that cork. And you look on the back and you have some pieces there already if you bring back and dialing Gionta at the end of the year. For the reasons that that it just talked evil king where another guy that does things the right way. And kinda helps build this thing from from that underneath well. I don't need your stern put those peace deal may be while more scorn for the compliment they've on the left wing. And all you guys mentioned you know Bennett's name as a guy that can come in and score. Mean he is kind of look at that those peaceably squirrel and. Or there blue eyes. You know and you know Thomas bank was a player that you know we re. Talk to vote quite a bit at the the start of the season and I thought that. He's he's a right handed shot but he plays left wing I thought that he. Is the type of player who literally does not want to touch the puck and tell you pass a two long minutes off the stick in in the net. And there's a player that he can play with Jack eichel who loves to have the pocket and Thomas manic is one of the best players in the league. Trying to find open space. And I think he would have been seeing real good fit for time offer for. You know Sam Reinhart and Jack cycle two guys that can pass the park's top Hispanics as we want to I'd be more excited to see Danica Reinhart and I would like with the wrong. Vantage Scott's eat we played with him for years he's got crazy he he is under appreciated school level with the way that he can stay camel and angle. He doesn't want to be the carry the puck cure he wants the move he wants to get in open space. You get the puck to him he is going to put that puck in the back Thomas van is that this is what I remember about that he'd bust over the Blue Line with the park. Distributed to the outside and many just get his stick down and keep keep the speed moving and Hollywood he would just have his stick. Down on the ice either shoot four for target you can pass to it he could he can. Shoot the park with just the snap of his risky and not have to he did not have to draw that stick back to shooting he he was. All jest he he Thomas banning does not want to be the center of attention he was making seven inch million dollars. Yeah for years and he is not the player that wants to be the limelight guy he wants to be a piece of the puzzle. I think that he's he's a 33 year old guy that has still a lot of game left him and I think that you can pay him. Minimal. For what you get for for a player that would play in a first line but there are early when you're there right Hillary of their role in the rises all. You're asking Thomas in either Clark or five years addict back Janata asking for a for a five year deal you're asking for a one year deal. Play him with Jack eichel and Sam Reinhardt I guarantee you he'll score 2530 goals all day long and you'll have fifty to sixty points. Here's this and there there's a reason Detroit signed this year Detroit Ann and I know how they operate in it in to this day Jimmy double Lotto there senior vice president. The person that the kind of identified me and offer me my contract in my start to pro hockey we still talk to the stage and he gave me a little insight. We're manic is concerned the reason they went on sign him in the offseason as Detroit's a team that's known for producing within. Those that that next wave of player that's gonna come up in gonna produce they had to tar that had night Quist who had multiple people in the past. They didn't have a couple young guys now exactly but they didn't have that in the pipeline they knew their losing Datsyuk they knew that they needed a quick fix. A leak talent scoring a guy that can come in and score and give them an offensive punch at a fairly cheap rate after his but it bio Minnesota they knew that they're gonna get. Short term. Bring an end to kind of fill that gap while they wait for that next week to come and and it's a similar situation here. You're talking of long term. But you may be fill that gap with the players that you can get. At a fairly valuable price with good value that is gonna score and that is gonna produce it and give you that element well you wait. For the guys they can you Lander to develop what you wait for maybe Justin Bailey to take that next step in to an offensive role. Where I still think that they're feeling no where he's gonna fit in whether it's. Top six Bonham six Kano where where he's at the NHL. So it's not a permanent peace but it's a piece that gives them if you don't. I think guys like that we're talking about free agency wants for the sabres. You can call seat a 3055888550. To 550 footer polls out today's NFL free agency but if you're NHL free agency. What would be your number one area that you want the sabres to address. There's the pole right there if they were NHL free agency what is your number one want for the sabres 3% see forward. 88% CD. And 9% sequel to an atlas and I'm with the minority here IE. I want to continue to to build the forwards and it's not even necessarily. Scoring forwards. It's it's not even two weeks guys it's guys that. That are worse that you know you can trust in the us it's that it's the guys like Nate Thompson. It's those it's those side knocked core pieces Matty but your depth pieces and the sabres. If you don't sign guys like that I don't want what you call not stop gaps but but he see Detroit called. You know find guys that. Well but my point is they're gonna have a lot of young players and a roster next year and the more inexperienced you have a Carol skilled and talented they are. Inexperience. Can be your biggest nightmare. In this week. Plain and simple if if you guys who look why do you think at the deadline teams go out try to find the guys that have experienced are going to look for young talent. The whatever guys and ought to win believer guys that Brian Gionta they're looking for guys. Like Jarome Iginla. I mean those guys are not a dime a dozen but the fact of the matter is they're looking for guys that have experienced played this league a long time. That's how you win these guys that like that. They want that experience and obviously they want guys that are proven winners doesn't know. What it takes to win but they also want guys to come and they gives it that second layer of inner accountability. Within the team within two where were. Now it's not only on the coaching staff whether it. When it becomes driven from from within that block room and the and that's where you get when you when you start looking in and you add veteran pieces that you ad supporting cast pieces that sometimes. Is it. Are we gonna Jack upper accountability it within this room. You know what what how much work or the coach is gonna have to put in an is that message getting carried through throughout the locker room. Kenny young guys make a mistake and not have to have a coach Barkin but how to look veteran player in the eye and kind of Buick guy I got to be better and I get it. Because that veteran players gonna show all how to do it over and over and over again and be better for so there's different I mean there's different elements when when you look at it. But that's one thing where when you do look at some of these signings in these players that are acquired a deadlines and in free agency. Principles of some of these things outside of the goals and assists in the stat line that go along way to developing the culture that we talked voter there. Reviewed a smirk on your face that I I'm just you know I look at Thomas panic and I and you know I'm not seniors trying to hear all the tires atomic I had he has 39 points sixteen goals and 51 games. Rates now minus he's minus one on Detroit all year okay. Listen let's we have a Sam Reinhard who haven't pretty darn good season. Has 41 point. And as fourteen goals this is how good their next year is Pete plays a full 82 games. He's gonna be he's going to be twenty to 25 goals all day long and he's going to be up around 5055. Points. I mean. It's a great if you know and it's a one year deal on a guy that just I mean he just knows how to score he knows where to get open. To be a trigger guy and he does not need to over handle pock. And an out I think on a one year deal it would be an incredible thing to pick up an act on it 2.5 million dollar contract. And European no brainer Craig her faith Matty analysis Thursday Matty Ellis is here is to gators WGR Sports Radio 550 an amnesty savers not an action tonight. They play tomorrow in Columbus since Saturday home to Columbus on back to back in head to head. Against. For T good team we're talking about free agency today because NFL free agency. So we are just wishing that if it were the NHL free agency what would be some of the areas. Of need to address Matty brought up Dwight king. Craig Prada. Thomas and act like I what I you know I bring up Tom Hispanic for a band aid. Okay band aid move meaning it very short term fix that I think could really help this team and when you sit in their pin balling players back and forth with who's gonna play Wii Jack and Sam. You have a legit guy that's been a number one. Winger in this league left Winger for a long time I believe that he can be a very very good fit for this hockey team for a one year one year plan I think. You and it gives more time and pressure takes more time in. Off jackets and and guys like that have them. You know grow into the players that they're going to be if you're looking long term and here's where my wishful thinking becomes you know a little bit more fairy tale than anything. Is you have players on like for example he's an unrestricted. Her her story a restricted free agent. I like Nino meter runner up. Minnesota Wild. I mean this is a player that I believe has is is up and coming and he's already had 320. Goal seasons in a row. He's continuing. Every single year to get better. He's a six foot and opposite as a as a rule and it really tough situation a lot of adversity with the islanders and and he was a third I miss her fifth overall they traded him right away because they didn't like what they saw and he's worst way and make us feel something easily had a goal right yeah any with the in the minors they Russia all. Classic example of a player being rushed in outlook mean. The the islanders could have this guy with the water Mark McClellan under arcane to moderate buck yeah. It was a one for 11 for and you know it obviously I think it's kind of worked out for both sides the long Jerry of the tree I think is Google obviously towards. Minnesota Whitney and eater but. You know I know he's a restricted free agent it's wishful thinking by hand what I love to see a guy like that along long the wing of the Jack cycle and in in samurai and heard a big strong power forward that can ski. He's guy he's got some skills to his game. But he's more of a goal scorer and he's going to be that physical presence in the pine nuts for having hole that maybe TJ -- to be awful season minute after really am. Are going to be paying him a lot of money and we are we have our TJ Yoshi in the way that I look at it he's he's very very similar to the same player is Kyle postal and we we got our guy. Our the guy that we won it last year was was. Kyle post. He's had a he's had a terrific year for this hockey team right now that that is struggled. At large. Large. Points in the season Kyle both has had a nice season so far and I think he's our he's our TG OTI don't think that we needed. What if I said. Eric England. As a depth defenseman. And what if I says so let's say now rip your. Go listen the game has not 1015 years ago. If you're out for the fight any of the art for the fighting it's just for its previously employed. Yeah I've seen implied that he would enhancement don't ask the question and gives you your hand is twelve points is plus seven plays eighteen minutes in the eighties he's playing Calgary I mean he's he's a serviceable defense defensemen he's under three million dollars. It's twelve points is plus seven I mean he's not a he's not a I'm not talking much more on the ice he's a he's on that team because. He is he is the enforcer. For the team for so there's no one or serves anymore give me the only fortunately right now is last night was obsessed needle. Against Chris Korver that's the last of weird happening out there question. Super heavyweight Thompson's veto. But Eric and McCain anyway man Jared angle and invite him. Just item its map mop the ice with apparently no you just answer my question you answered it for me. Angolans on that team because he's a physical presence and that's what they need. They have him in the lineup for that reason he is not a swift skating defensemen he's not a puck mover we don't need those guys and our line up. We need guys that can play the game. He he wouldn't be a guy that I'd be looking. Matty and support. Calgary is Calgary's only eight Calgary is a wild card spot the way I just wanted to let out there he's he's a depth defenseman. Auto pretty good team I just wanna chuck that out there of and he's been around a long time. I don't know these wanna companies played a ton of playoff games he's been around us he was with Pittsburgh. Hopefully this guy awesome to have on this Ross is that it ever be accept. Carry on. Well let's travel line here we got a phone call here I'd saved by the ringer Andrew in buffalo and calling myself Andhra buffalo you're on WGR Sports Radio 550 MSG go ahead. Yeah I display the park Florida. Are my IET Brian Boyle might be it could pick up for the speaker's 98 Eckhart. Ryan O'Reilly and try to make the under air over it used and I think Brian Boyle heights the did pick up so it and the pound the chill good arms six. Forward is on here rejecting. I like the guy's name and you're just Smart as hell. Because I would advise them if the sabres against Brian Boyle. Could you match with that would duty roster. Please. Like you're the you don't like it. Well I can't do anything we do you know we can look at the all the time at all because very it's very. Rare that we get any kind of face questions that you whatsoever. You're kind of late. You know. Now. Don't answer this question will talk by Todd Brian Boyle. When we return an unrestricted free agency is Andrew called and brought up prime boil any QB in its BP'S_C. a pregnant man have to say about that. All one when we return we'll also get in the contender pretender or finally tire thoughts on teams what they're doing and where they might end up community here. When we return WG are fortunate to fight it in Imus view. The thing that stands out in my mind is I'm gonna see you always play. And sure enough. I've been screaming about give them played since the day that Felix Potvin made up Ron thanks for. I've never been wonderful ever. It could have been a lot with him. Or ovals we do and I'm just lake fault I'm stuck. But what's going on here what this conversation. I think we're getting up and refining. There has been welcome back. To the investigators. Andrew Peters straight remain Matty Ellis stubby GR Sports Radio 515 mystique a look for them marks a lot of it is beyond blue gold. Looking back on that Ottawa brawl ten years ago when Marty spot Ray Emery wide use smiling yet. Is that a brother records let the record show. That Gregory Reyes smiled more our partners she noted they showed more facial expression. Then he's done all year. Don't worry smiling. I did and now. She's one of those days where you know latest Felix Allen just tapped him. You know it. All Peters and on the broadcast tomorrow. You know what that means day. Road trip in. Where on Columbus Davey. Number that trip to Columbus don't remember no. Member of that trip to Columbus this idea sighs okay. Are right Saudi investigators and deputies Gregory Matty Ellis. The talking it's NFL free agency today so in in you know. In on that. We will all we've been talking about our team here the Buffalo Sabres. And what might they be doing if it were free agency and if they do any what would you want them to do we have a Twitter pull out if today were NHL free agency. What would be your number one move you want the sabres to do. Right now we've been an overwhelming amount of people saying defense which. I don't necessarily Hewitt I with a 3% of the forwards and actually ripped last get the last thing we took call. And gentleman called in so what about signing a guy you guys aren't favored by Derek England side. Which I don't I don't agree with you guys I don't agree with everything you guys see either with the way you guys go about disagreeing with the is completely unfair. But Brian Boyle you like that idea are now. I love it. I love it I thought that was the biggest picked up by the least by the way to treat them. I'm sorry you'll definitely all be agreeing on not 16 foot 6244. Pounds. The last three years he's in 1513. Thirteen goals. He's up big strong body he's a great faceoff man. I think the extra special thing about Brian Boyle. Is he is a very very good teammate and I've heard a lot of really good things about him. He'll do anything he can score he can be physical he's gonna play great defense of hockey. He's gonna make it tough on and on now opposing. Top teens. Forward so you know he would be you'd be a great pick up for the sabres. I don't mean what do you by Ian that you probably agree with Craig has agreed on everything and vehemently disagree I was tied in together drink wine with each other's lives together. And as you see on TV right now Brian Boyle is going in on a shoot out. And scores so we can do everything this guy he really can't and he he can scrap to he's got amazing speed. I mean you look at him here and he just brushes off I don't even know without what they was Pasternak was forward there but you know he's he's got great speed could stick handling. And the palate can remember watching a couple of years ago in the playoffs against Detroit he would you know eight of shorthanded breakaway goal. And he's he gets a lot of chances. Shorthand is well what Ian Williams. Nora all put my it my own twist I agree gathering crew except for the reasons and in cement yourself PD I like Brian Boyle as a player. The one thing that jumps so to me is that you look at and I'm not saying you need to copy anybody but police brought him in for a reason OK and obviously it speaks volumes again. About the character and a vote wanted at a guy in to their culture with a young players. With you know he's going to be not playing with but in that locker room with Matthews in the U Lander in martyr and all these young. Up and coming core guys you don't bring in someone that doesn't have those qualities to be around those guys leading into a stretch whether you get and whether you don't get in. He's been identified as the type of guy you want around your team. I would a 100% city you'd be the type of guy that I've Marbury and in my locker room and this is enough. To do with boil or the sabres I'd just as much as we'd love to have them here to great caller suggestion I just don't see him coming here. I see him going to a team that is in the past he's played a hundred playoff game for the most playoff games in the last. Like three or four years your junior Rangers in the with Tampa and eighties. He's loyal to the went to the cup finals with the Rangers went to the cup finals with Tampa Bay the year because finals a last year you know. I mean he's he's put in some on. He's put in to some big efforts and in the playoffs and he's been a big part of that so. He he would certainly be a player that you would love to get your hands on he's not restricted player he's 32 years old so you have to be aware of maybe the age factor in what type of but term that. Brian Boyle be looking for by you know at a piece like that to the puzzled whether year eat whether you're looking at them for your third or fourth line center. He would be he would be certainly appreciated. Addition to the team what are your thoughts of some of the teams around the league get you know contender pretender I mean you look around the league and there's a lot of teams like Toronto let me deals at the deadline trauma is one of those teens that I think you have to. We have definitely on the list here for two topic of discussion. Boyle was brought in to make them a contender they sit on the outside right now are they. Contender pretender trying to Maple Leafs with Brian Boyle. Well you know what bringing. Bring them. Brian Boyle and any situation I think is going to be positive I think he is a leader I think he's been in com. The playoffs and knows how to get there and and and how to play he's. He is eight peace to the puzzle Brian boils knocking it could come in there to Toronto and pass and say hey. I'm I'm a guy I need I need my minutes now he's gonna be a piece of the puzzle and he's going to be a big help to those young guys in the locker room think they pout and struggling. They have been struggling as as of late. 41 of their last ten day. They are they're very good hockey team there there gathered their skill now they're deep with young youthful talent that. Com right now we're going to make youthful mistakes and you have to live and die that's why at the deadline. You would you would think that Toronto being in the position that they have that they would've really gone out and try and bolster their roster to Tryon. Make sure that there a definite playoff team but they didn't they made one small move. That I think is gonna benefit them moving forward in they they understand it's not just to vote. This playoffs it's a boat the playoffs are you come in for the next ten years one point the behind the islanders they both had seventeen games remaining. Now you think try targets and. Oprah one of the reasons rivers said they are there at the rate that dog fight and and they bring in a guy. Like Boyle to give them you know some stability moving forward and and a guy that's been through. You know whatever whatever the game's gonna Troy if from from here on Al whether you get in or whether you don't get in. Mean it's it's going to be about. For them but I. I think that you know obviously with one point back about while responders there is a chance and I think that. Now if it if it isn't this year I think there are a good position for building. You know upon the foundation that they've lead now. And and I I guess PDA like for me it's hard to see whether there contender or pretender because they think that. You know there let's say they stink gender or what the book that's exactly it it's let's say this weekend. Can they play can beat the washing capital absolutely not with what they have now. You don't think articles being you know that young and and maybe you know full of I guess. It'll be just EIA Nelson. If they don't get in if they don't get in this this final stretch of hockey with them being one point back. Is going to be like a playoff experience for that team. The pressure gets jacked up you got a young roster there's pressure to win on a night to night basis. Whether they get in or don't get and if they do get and I don't see them get nor the first round. That that's my opinion they play Washington and I don't know winning game. First round they've played Philly tonight and that's another team that's another traditional ladder and I think I Phillies a team that could sneak in and and make Iran. I think if Philly got an and you see how you see on those are rivalry nineteenth a filly were to sneak in. You know they play the leafs tonight that's going to be huge game there's two points difference there but if they sneak in. I think Philly could upset the Washington Capitals absolutely why it's not even close. Now did you give us way too much respect that so just teams hear yourself think you. Teams of all through time Washington Capitals ten years ago were not the team that they are now they've developed. And moved. Is as deep if not deeper than any team in the National Hockey League they have superstar talent on their defense the brought they have defenders and they have great puck movers. They also have a goaltender that right now is. Is arguably one of the top three in the National Hockey League the air hole. Make up. Is now they have developed. They've taken their time for a team and their win time their opportunity has been the last. Two or three years but they are in a situation that team is so deep. They're they're tough and their time is to win now Toronto is a young. Inexperienced. Highly skilled team that's going to make mistakes they're back end on defense is not very strong. Their goaltending. Has actually been very sold this year and Anderson but. He's had to make some bigger saves and may be what he would like they're not deep enough they're not. Make sure enough as a hockey team and that's okay that's okay because they're. They're going to evolve into a great team in years to come but their time is not now Washington. Is primed and ready to win the Stanley Cup. Their time is now if they don't win. This year. You're gonna start to see that team this man. They've had their win. Win window of opportunity they're gonna start to lose guys like TJ Joshi who was a big piece of that puzzle. Justin Williams who has won multiple Stanley cups LA and Carolina. He is getting older he's gonna start to move for or peck who is a great defender has won a Stanley Cup. There's gonna be pieces that start to be moved goat and their window of opportunity is going to be someone else is gonna come into that window.

Tons to select from and there were watching something come to an end fellas that started back when I was a young kid 25 years ago. Almost 26 years ago the Detroit Red Wings.

Do what Detroit did 25 years we see it again. We honor I have IE I just can't see it it really is when you think about it there. There's always that one season where you know yet you can blame it on X the you know the excuses doll we had our top players injured her. Someone got suspended for twenty gains. You know home someone died ill I don't know there's always that age you know. You'd eat trying to make sense of it but Detroit. Has been an organizer nation and we've talked about this earlier today. Matty played there there's that culture that it doesn't matter who you are when you come in. Everybody sit plays the same way they understand. What they need to do because that they know what's expected of them. And they play the same way each and every game and for 25 years this organize nation. Has made the playoffs this year will be the first a year that they've messed in and a very very long time but you know what. Kudos to them they've they've done a terrific job. I give B. Her real hard thing to to replicate that run that they had stemming from their culture that was built with this devise a men's and fall carried on with new leadership the necklace from. You know they've had it and it Crennel boron and it's something and something special I think. You look around the league now currently I think there's a ton a GMs coaches and players that have always wanted to know. What's done inside that red red wings organization to take back your own idol for me just growing up in that organization and playing their. When my first is involved ploy badly and he pulled me aside and ask me you know what goes on in Detroit what makes it's so good. Why do that wire the able to accomplish what they accomplished year after year. And those are things and a norm not the only one but that. You know success leaves clues in a row wants to know what goes on it starts with the with the culture that they bring in the players coming up into it. You can't escape it because you're either in or you're out and there's no room for B and how thin it's either you're all in and you buy into that team first mentality. Or we don't have time for and that's the way they have operated. Going to be tough to replicate that. 25 years are going to be dying. I don't see it being done and you mentioned Steve visor and there was Scotty Bowman you know where there were so many players that set the culture you know what Steve lies have been credited. Danny Garrett. We're showing him teaching them leadership obviously that's that's that's also so Danny was their right toward the end.
