And now. Cole Hamels didn't -- stuff Howard Simons you know. This is just -- a toss up on WGR. Sports Radio 558. -- isn't relevant but changing our lineup tonight. Playing the part of Paul Hamilton. All right Paul Hamilton. -- Skype calls coming up at night -- balls and nine -- to put -- you know on the NHL lottery. The current changed a lot. -- in the ECB is that every team that misses the playoffs gets a chance to win the number one overall pick last year the sabres would have had a one point 1% chance to win the lottery. So basically the way that it works. If our alas -- was a bit confusing it used to be that only the top five teams had a shot at the number one overall pick -- Columbus last year had a 48% chance at winning. Because. Team's sixth through fourteen could not move past that right only so far right club is ultimately didn't win Edmonton won the lottery. In Columbus picked second now. Says the sabres finished at the worst record in the league have a 2.5 percent chance of winning. And the top five wood had to have a look at it. But the 6% 43221111. Add that up. That takes away from the number one team's chances every once chance stays exactly the same except. But the worst team in league everybody else has the -- chance -- yes. Of winning the lottery they're very they're expenditures -- the same every percentage is the same but that one little thing that they've removed about the maximum place that you can move up. Change is the number one team which is the worst team change their -- from 48% chance of getting number one pick to a 25% chance. When -- number one -- so to recap. Not the year to be worst the sabres lost. Islanders feel worse than we got the Winnipeg game. The draft lotteries changed. You have about half -- chance a chance of getting the topic at that but the worst team did last year. Oh by the way they've tweaked realignment it looks like the red wings are going to be in the sabres division which is not that bad the -- are that good anymore. I've got a feeling they'll they'll be okay now the Big Ten X. It what the -- division -- buffalo I'd. Okay well you know this is where Joseph comes in cheers everybody up. With some good football news Joseph and Joseph this -- more bad news one -- Sorry jokes are you love a good conspiracy -- bad news now all you open up the likelihood of if a team wins the lottery but I gotta say. -- Conspiracy. It's a conspiracy out bush team needs number one overall pick sabres know what I mean look at the league really help. Winnipeg. Conspiracy. All out and you're opening yourself up that the conspiracy theory please. Don't help Winnipeg area at tank I'm Don -- was the pick and other cities Joseph. -- little cheer me up joke. Give me some good bills news. I don't know all right let's start with this than the fact that could answer. -- else -- not being tendered I am surprised I I thought. You know that the guy that showed a good parent hands good size. -- know he's coming up a big injury but had been pretty productive and I thought you know one point three million. I was anticipating them. Tendering David Nelson so why wouldn't they what they thought process is there. All first and foremost coming up a torn ACLU. And it anyone really explosive receiver that they get less. So he was more of the -- -- run ten to fifteen yards down the field kept the ball and don't get too much yard effort cabbage. Well variety of receiver I mean -- police and that's. Is that is total stats were -- 94 catches for just a little over a thousand yards so there's some. The tablet was not good because that's not tackle pushy cookie was. It it when you add all those statements combined with the fact that they're looking to find their own guys and and if she if you wanna be quite honest you know David Nelson and if you or bring a double to go to the equation. -- undrafted free agent. I mean you can find another ticket Nelson out there really want you confide in -- doubt no -- there you really want a much lower price. And then end it. They'd all have these the injury problem that David Nelson -- -- in adult jail after starting a couple of seasons. Probably wants a bit more and then that one point three million bet that you would commit itself. Not all that supplies that they released David Nelson and ensure they only have to leave receiver on the roster. That that started. At I'm on the team last year. Their end Brett Smith Steve Jobs that are TJ Graham of course what you police still rolling around thereby. You know -- I'm not necessarily. Are confused by it by the decision to not tendered and not because well maybe just. Say they are you want to want that anymore. Let me ask you this -- I mean you know on terms of that the big name free agents in the receiver market those guys are all asking for like 891011. Million dollars a year apparently. Do you think how does that impact the draft do you think that the first pick or or the day to pick or something now is automatically going to be -- receiver. Well I don't think. I don't believe -- be automatically but I think it certainly plays into the equation here and the one guy a look at and I know. He had a couple of negative -- come into play yesterday but -- well Paterson and to me it looks. You know when you watch him play you just. He looks the part of you know a guy that you couldn't you couldn't see a team willing to take in the top and because of his overall. Explosiveness and play making ability. He's just. An eight presidential verse six -- two -- 200. You know. Well I'll or something like that to a thirteen -- and Iran or -- to the other day so that's. Pick a receiver that go and get it that is dynamite in the open field so. And you know this. There's there's guys like and there are guys like Keenan Allen from -- -- -- guy like. Geography it opted for requirements and so I think it will be addressed at some point in the first two days. I wouldn't be shocked it was they'll pick a date so all they do have a lot of -- that that might view but I wouldn't be shocked. I always go back to that party mixed. Comment about. That they go and and I'll accept things up with. AJ green and Eddie -- now well well let. Isn't necessarily -- -- the public that -- it does play into it based stuff vote. How -- how -- they revamped their offense. It now one year and -- party nick has alluded to it used to interpret our belt. I think it is and -- -- -- but not particularly the last update your. What I quarterback anything you know I gave it the overall question of do you think they'll still address quarterback. On day one or date to and then you can give me a second part of that answer in terms of what is soft and the quarterbacks in Indy. There's ever really it's kind of it's a black group you know. Yeah it really. That had a lot what the market will look like to -- you know. A market that from now on when we'll really start to get into the nitty gritty -- stop what he missed. Then you know. Not rely so much on the back -- just saying -- -- The weaker quarterback group look away look away look away -- but when you have. Teams and fan bases. Clamoring pull away in her face of the franchise. You know that sometimes put a little bit more pro drug including -- coach for the draft. And then you see what happen in 2011. Happen again. You know you know quarterbacks like. -- gap growing and are that are relevant but sorry Jake Locker going at burger April or whatever it is crucial part are going well. You know these are guys that probably shouldn't have -- that one push up the shouted you don't have to wouldn't bash. As much money as you did in the past in the quarterback position. Then I and I'm not necessarily going to sit here and -- are going to be any court extra push because I think they'll inevitably will go. Probably and that being plea for just because of -- you -- a position then then there than either of you really want to make a market. Potentially finally got its weight around longer and you're stuck with where the older than in the past three years. Where you just keep waiting for it to get Q and that the -- they're going to be taken by at least not then then your what what type of America act and then. -- well how are the federal court ordered you want to put out a roster still with those guys so. I I don't know I don't think it's an eight overall need but I can certainly see. A situation. Where the bill would trade Beckett. That's the first well then antics that are to their quarterback because. I do think they like so I just you're I don't think a lot of the South America this year. What about I was gonna ask you about linebacker but I want -- -- about -- tail first. You were there for the press conference -- wants the ID DVR and I watched the whole thing. I was really impressed. I think it's -- really difficult situation aided NAFTA talk but he did. Beat he took all the -- like fourteen minutes where the questions pretty much about the incident it's an embarrassing thing for guide to go through and then. You know goal in front all these cameras all these media and have to talk about the most embarrassing thing that has happened in your entire life. I was really impressed at how humble and how honest and forthcoming and I I just I love the way indicating -- not that. I mean I would draft him anyway you think he's good player but I thought if your rate is there any concerns. About him personally. I think they were wiped out by how we handled everything. That he did quite well for himself and open media but that's not always very. A true test. Four before the diet book to be -- with some what some personality concern. Some off the field stuff. But I think he did handled himself quite well. Especially one question. -- the second the last question like. Are you dating anyone in real life. Critical view I mean that's the question who I mean. I would its outstanding right over near the area where bastard that question but I will never forget. From outlets -- overcome by the -- when you get those types of questions I think another question like that so why didn't you go. Be easier to see anyone and not let you really love and our inability to handle everything with with boyish. And it didn't look like he was -- should -- look like he was being real. And you know it's it's something that people continue to ask about and what can it continue to try and get to the bottom of because. They don't want someone who's AA and a compulsive liar American impart. You know wait let our tail came across. In that in earlier that it seemed like he was being humble he was being truthful seem like he was just a naive. Kid that got caught up and opening. Who you know that's that's the -- it comes across by. You know. -- opposite can be -- no matter what no matter which -- a guy can be a great talker -- then. And the being outgunned on the field or a dud. You know what he's not talking above approach well. You know I don't want to put too much popular but I -- Turkey old -- it is. Did do very well for so. All right Joseph thanks great job there's lots audio from from the the -- -- -- on demand audio WGR 550 dot com and -- columns as well and I'm. Political I don't live here John predict we're going to be seeing a lot more from me at our website. Yeah that I I would I would assume so -- -- and they are still some more work workouts today I think. The defense than them linebackers and offensive tackle during the forties and doing miracles today. And tomorrow they defensive backs will be going through their stuff. And then now when now -- up.
