    is the assistant in Detroit Detroit under he was an assistant under Mike Babcock . What's he wanted to you Reggie wanna stay there what are his aspirations does he think that you know and that that's
    of the blame. If not I'm in murder I'm. To blame for Mike Babcock meg going to Buffalo's on the Tbilisi you're saying that. Draft because if you're committed. To the and they were spreading all
    the goal is don't have. And they're not the Toronto Maple Leafs Mike Babcock is Canadian I'm Canadian I I I get it I understand his. I understand his want to coach that franchise again. I understand that that's his prerogative this isn't. This isn't he sitting here defending the Google has its me. Understanding Mike Babcock decision I'm I don't like it. I don't like how it all came down I wish it didn't I wish it just sort of been I'm going to Toronto from the get go and they're gonna pay any top dollar and back could've been it but I think offering five and a half million dollars when the next best coach or the next highest paid coach Italy is three million they just want a couple few years ago. I think that's commitment especially. When. They're like especially when Mike Babcock isn't going to win eight Stanley cups in a row starting next year at the Toronto Maple Leafs. Mike rap I think even said that this rosters further ahead in Toronto. How much further ahead maybe a few pieces but they're still further ahead they have to try to get those pieces. The other thing is. This is Toronto Maple Leafs man I did all right. A look at this way if you get a timid you had a chance to coach the Milwaukee Brewers and they had to you know go back to amend the fielder Kidder right. And they are an up and coming team

    are guys with ties to Ottawa Paul McLean former senators head coach. Luke Richardson who is still coaching the senators. Minor league team in Binghamton in the American Hockey League so. I thought inching at least for me anyway I'd like to find out about these guys little bit more so we're
    dollars off. I'm or mentioned both guys I want to start with Luke Richardson because I think sabre fans at least have a working knowledge of Paul McLean based on what he did in Ottawa. But yeah I don't know how many of us know exactly what Luke Richardson has done. As a coach in the minors so. From your vintage point in Ottawa from what you hear about how things are going down in Binghamton and you would have seen him as a player but as a coach what's the word. Up and Otto about what he's done so far. Well you know what the first word comes to mind is perspective. A lot of young players. Took. Full advantage of the experience that Luke Richardson brought to the bench. And behind the bench and how he coached in how he related to the players are shouldn't have
    play the game and again yours at 14100. Games of experience that Luke Richardson brought to the bench in Binghamton. You know Mike Coffman as a pure goal scorer and whenever you need a goal in the American Hockey League he's. The idea put them on the ice whatever whatever is needed to prevent a goal you didn't. Because. He's not that

Reggie is how and Jeremy -- Dolan. Howard. -- -- don't well again it doesn't we just expected a twenty win season no problem right. Has it that -- you know as we could dial it up like that would we don't go to drive through and just. Now been. Or let me ask -- this to me you lost some key players obviously Reggie off a really good team last year tremendous you know twenty wins. Great season in the Mac got the -- and semi finals but as the cupboard is bare so you feel good about what you got coming back. I think we have a nucleus of guys that gives us something. Bill and we will obviously that better than having no hope what you new guys -- We do it good to do it that there are their new roles. And they'll take a little while a growing. And we'll have to do it. You know under fire because we've we have a great schedule. Well askew is an any you know in terms of the guys that you're gonna lean on the returners you're leaning on just -- little item -- older my guess Watson talk about the guys are leaning on. And do you think they are. Mature enough I guess ready enough to handle that federal. Well maturity is that magic word next. You know everyday. Throughout Odom and about -- played a lot of minutes last year. Yeah give out with your -- rob was our fourth starting point guard in over forty years stretch. In the -- great. You know you let -- trapped in excess. He did a lot of things sports. -- he was first team all conference. -- from last year's team. We lost former top five leading scorers. And they were guys that helped us. How are we were fourth in the country in rebound to a knife in the country insists. Were eighteen in the country and clutch shots. Without it in the country -- Google percent speaker and I think that turned into these looking to. Today it's very rare. Things will be brought recapping our bench so we we had a really good rotation. And will be you know obviously look -- -- tried it to do that different people. On this -- that they -- it'll be a process force. Yeah but you know what I mean. I think you know your team's Reggie one of their trademarks is they're very good rebounding and they're usually very -- -- -- -- is much you know you lose -- offense very comfortable you feel that once you've got. When you entrenched that philosophy of playing hard strong defense and go to the boards hard. How much can that. Compensate for that you don't have as much offense -- you as you normally would have. Well it's certainly does -- We wanted to empowered as we works great in the country and watch -- Natalie last year but the year before as well and a lot of little shots were blocked by in this Titus and Dave Barnett. Will be a different scene we'll have a pretty -- protect the basket differently. What do you know wallet after rebounds and and so they don't they know now this comes at a time when. Again where. Traveling literally over the country to play in the and it and it played very good change really great basketball traditions. -- -- -- coming at them how. I don't bring back everybody you know seniors. -- bring back everybody is so. I transferred from West Virginia who who can play a lot of weight to to a family militant -- eleven quality -- country. -- -- -- -- just -- that you know can't vote again in Bowling Green went back on the best players in the conference. -- kind of manual challenges. But our guys have to step into new roles and we talked through a lot about it and hit the people that were were referring to that in some cases in the player of the year in. That it cannot potentially great job force -- as well -- -- -- gangs now those people are being deferred to. And the most of that of that mindset and it's fantastic to while growing too wouldn't we hopefully it didn't pick catwalk Linux. Regular -- about the engine bomb McRae who certainly has grown and has been a very good player for the for you through the first two years of his career. What's the next step for him what what are you wanna see from him obviously I would think you know every year a player should elevate his game so what does he need to do feel. I think mentally the thing we've been talking Puget Sound about there's assertiveness. And on and off the court. He's a junior now. And you know we don't have a lot of seniors. Is that we we probably will not started seeing here. At least -- tomorrow and so. Did you during -- that we have. We need more leadership from them and it starts for being assertive. Now that you elements of the game a tangible elements. We could prove to them I think he's improved himself question stepping away from the that's a little bit further. Knowing why certain you know sometimes he was so terrible and it's for its first two years golf but he did -- in no way the ability -- that it. He did it on pure instinct and so now. I didn't think he's improved and know how. And -- know why. Intend to why he would do certain things that he would do why would working with a look for. I'm probably a restart the way people with play and and in that so that's again and that's a process in Bonita tremendously talented young man. Well you can see the bulls tomorrow again alumni -- it's a noon game than you can hang out for the football game at 330 -- western Michigan. For advanced planning QBs gonna play it can beaches later this month November 20. They do have temple coming into alumni arena at the end of the month as well after Thanksgiving. Reggie thanks for coming now that's good luck tomorrow and good luck the rest of the season with the bulls as well. --
