-- his fans. Live from first Niagara center piece -- sabres hockey hot item -- Kevin Sylvester. You wanna talk hockey you wanna talk receivers calls text your -- Kevin right now 716. Vetoed three. -- scheduled game GM searches and sideshow or you're sharing. Simple as a write stories with Andrew Peters. The save restore and Swedish Olympian goaltender Jonas and -- joining us here in as being just said the onus off of like Sweden right -- you get worse snowstorms in -- Actually down from its famously says it's not -- from. For example weaknesses from. Street trees -- -- and -- -- up I was -- I was playing during the lockout I left there on March. I Love Boat in March 4 and it was and when. -- -- It turned turned on the car it was it was a is diesel Mercedes was minus twenty degrees and they had it was plugged into. -- close to that they have. That they have everywhere all over all over Sweden and is first in the northern part three got to plug your cars -- -- diesel those trees. We've seen at the airport in Edmonton and Winnipeg when he Poland he seal those little posts in people who are plugged in the on the engine blocks. They don't freeze and anybody -- the last few days is negative wind chills that's what they make feels like going there right yours yours just to Winnipeg it felt like that. Knows there's there's minus Florida think -- to wind and it to us those. The best place to be the news the. -- before get to the Olympics. Yesterday I have -- -- game canceled due to a blizzard. Unusual that that happens awarded what did you do make it here all too go through skate -- what do you just. -- attacks. In the morning says the Prius is -- so. I think it takes us again says the game Kansas. I mean it happens sometimes it works. Did you did you think that maybe because here I thought. For sure they were going to play I'd hate to because I just thought Carolina was here that is the Olympic schedule and everything just get the game over with and you know cut your losses financially in the deal and maybe. Please the fans and missed out on another payment deflationary -- until -- -- fleece some haven't Lisa with some tickets all the tickets not not a whole lot of America -- mean steal. Code doesn't. I've heard it was a police it was. Why better learn how to how to. Well I guess what I meant to say was you know you get tickets to another team pitcher Derek yeah maybe the middle there and take care -- but what did you did you think they were playing. Lie attitude -- history crazy out -- and understand users. I don't want the best -- in that went out. -- says. Call. Outbreak call for the players to remain as the -- guys live Clarence with their families and it's not like. You know your -- live here you know -- street to hotels that -- yet the players had to get here also the officials don't mean it was. Driving conditions were and factory that made the right call as to when they're able to reschedule -- to figure that out but. Let's talk about the exciting news for you being named the team's winning congratulations to meet every real. I am very excited they told me probably a week ago and is great news and I was very excited and now I -- -- of -- can't wait to go to Russia and Nancy. CO Sonoma. Did you is it something you expected something year old performing -- you won the world championship last year. In net form that the win loss records not great this year but you -- you save percentage and goals against very good for considering the record just like Ryan Miller. Yeah I think dead have been claim they have scientists have been do you think OK and especially you run as fast in on -- and went down knew it was probably a good chance. Make -- human my cassette it can't be more excited. Your your experience in and -- international competition and winning them in a much competence of that. Give you going into this tournament. If you when -- called upon to play go for -- -- I still think it's disputes a confidence boost when and -- tournaments that -- him beat -- pretty much had. -- team that in this tournament it is a associates. -- confidence -- for me and that sexism then go back to a lot during the season think about two on that that tournament. Any course of a teammate and her -- leader also made the squad on the Blue Line if you guys. Talked about the team the makeup of the team and your medal chances because does have a pretty strong squad for sure. Yeah I mean and -- says his announcement as it is funny last week when now. They tell the estimated team and they -- us and our time and house and that didn't say anything and just him up to me and saying congrats. Economic team to Hannity assess. You had a smile to face. And I mean he made it seem to lose. That's great -- it's a good leader and and days he can play agreements. And name. Assistant or not a systematic plan name situation situation in the -- -- games. So it's it's great to sort you know I think for him. -- Canada United States. And I sure Sweden the same thing they thought that we expect to win gold right with deputy. Is that is that the expectation for Sweden. I we expect to win and I think that ladies and yet it seems net. And that's our right just one game you can invest. Give me your best hockey. Matters and like short tournament and anything can happen and I mean. I think Sweden one and 2006 and then 2000 -- -- in the quarterfinals. And it's going to be in place and it's well international competition to do that sometimes I mean you look at them the -- in the world juniors I think they. They finished seventh last year and they win this year and it. It's been four years in between and a lot of changes and in the game and different ice surface numbering in in 2010 was in NHL or -- -- so. I actually think some of these European countries have or the European countries have the advantage over the North American teams like. Kennedy US that's a different different style can see you mean it is. Skate and past so it's going to be. A different era than its -- and like you said the European players. And it's this we plan on. They guys this. Ails it how he's just as we started playing when they they the big guys are slightly band. That's very positive for use goaltender bigger answer this. I actually enjoy. Playing this on ice surface one of the guys surface it's more the longer passes then. Yes I had to deal more aggressive than. And ministers and it. Is more on this small lives will happen is that all that's all got to be the angles right -- and how much of it is -- with the wider ice surface of the faceoff circles being a little bit. Farther apart and all that stuff in the behind the net and all that stuff -- I mean I can never say that I've been -- Circumstances -- goaltenders -- you how much of differences that make what I remember from map plane that was a championship -- just admits it is tied to that play the game as a Plano area and when the puck is but on the board said Tuesday. It two months to play this shot from there it just tried to stay in and and payments. It might have played the game I can Plano area and that think -- well for me -- because that is that a challenge obviously how hard was that to do those very -- first couple of practice as well I was going to there and and I guess that being canceled it easier to play a smaller -- to struggle. If -- ask you any tips and file think seasonally -- -- practice here if Bryant's shooting tips on playing the bigger and gonna give it to mean he hearsay your teammate here but I mean the -- I'm really not. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Is they have US Olympian representing Sweden. And good luck -- all it's a ways away but we want embryonic congratulate you and I appreciate you stop them for practice here aren't things that. All right Jonas said -- olympiad -- team Sweden and think about the goaltending tandem near buffalo Amin now Olympian Ryan Miller and illness and rob. And I think it's fair to say this guy is the number two goaltender behind and Oakland was and you know Lundqvist. You know. Today ought to be ready -- Lundqvist hasn't been great. I'd wanna put him out of the erratic. -- you know what I mean. Look what happened in Canada nobody expected -- go to step in the right behind burger -- was having a very good season that year. And ask them to an end you know evidently. It happen any steps if any and they wrote in the rest of the tournament in in Marty didn't see any more playing time so. And the longer poses a one out two weeks lately -- right now they've got Carey Price and Mike Schmidt but. In my -- not afraid to change -- he needs to. -- -- -- -- -- miles did you watch that 24/7. Would that -- I mean. I love my -- I suggest how did you theories are two armies you hear all -- -- All the all the stories about him from players that have plagued Foreman. You know good and bad here the Mike commodore stuff and all listen and there's always going to be view right. Are always not -- -- always and life. What you don't want the guys successful and he hits home I mean you listen to talk. He's a guy also that you -- run through brick wall for I remember when he was coaching the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks before it made the jump to the NHL. And you just knew this team the teams that you played against were always hard to play against his teams were always hard to play against and he's. I mean I don't want to -- won the lottery because you have to you have to be able to work with what you have their -- with some of the players he's had there. Makes his job a lot easier but let's be honest he's a darn good coach and he's not -- just further your point he's not afraid to make you change the -- and what do I not bringing cloture -- and I think even saying something to him. A message getting through to him before the start of the year you know what -- to expect to see from -- drew if he's going to be in the Olympic team and and obviously I have -- That's a hard system. Daniel says he he made an end. Well -- I -- pick the team obviously and obviously Babcock has to have some influence on -- an end along with other coaches when he Ken Hitchcock have. -- and the assistant coaches. Yeah it's been interesting stuff all right we do not know that make a game yet for Carolina. Sabres game. If you have. Or had tickets would make him hang onto them as of right now OK yes you're not going to be fleeced yes. -- -- That's our right honest mistake going -- on -- -- hang onto those tickets until further instructions. Are given out from the organization okay they're working on it so just hang onto those tickets and stay tuned. -- yes it is going to be a challenge to find that date. To fit this game and that's why I thought they would try to played yesterday but obviously and anybody who did any sort traveling yesterday united it was the right call. -- not. You know I have fans try to attempt to come down here. Just yesterday at the show to travel back in now is Amber's. Backed it Lancaster. Wives. One of its. Perry used white -- drives have ever had in my life that you know we've averaged what do you at some beauties in your day but. -- I like that nothing like yet know that was. That was a crowd this is my tenth year -- the only the only one I can remember that was as bad -- that there was a drive -- -- illnesses. Housing college corners and that game in Ithaca, New York. The -- snowstorm and the drive back country roads. To for don't yeah nodded to the three way drawback commitment thruway was similar to that. And in in my buddies as scored it was ridiculous boy -- but even worse yesterday because she couldn't see it. Brutal it was anywhere yeah. I actually I I got home and -- -- grateful to be home but it's. I actually kind of being out it was it was others I mean it was. Listen what -- -- I'm surprised at work so many people you know what you talk. It's people get out of their cars to help push people -- it is -- people vote in the city camps -- 100% and you know if you're if you're driving yesterday anywhere you absolutely saw that there's no question. -- It was you know as a pros and cons but -- seal it by the way. Kudos to all the road crews. In every municipality Western New York I mean think about this we see this stuff happened and other cities and they shut down for detainees one day. One day. One day yeah. It -- important as we know how to deal with it and I know a lot of these guys -- around the clock -- even the plow guys. You know who do driveways of businesses including my guy -- watching the news does it mean you're -- that nobody was nobody got stuck -- the highways SC well -- Smart to stay off and businesses say you know -- realize you people are coming in. It's -- it was they need to sell great job there. Hockey was canceled we would have been talking about a sabres victory days probably eight. Annoyed goaltending shot out of sorts obviously. Our right yeah well it -- who's starting last -- you know. Did you know who is starting -- would keep the streak. Of course you have you know Carolina and Florida tomorrow night. Com if they grind it's that start tomorrow -- left too low weight -- Mary wants to she is an idea on the Carolina scheduling plus ordinary. -- -- Yeah I I like crunching numbers. I am busy but I did did get an app earlier earlier today I went and -- and apple. -- you -- I really do it laughter. Atlanta -- declared in our pilot that girl has not been a bit. But I get flat panel -- it's broken man and I got that one thing or another and I good. I had both schedule and I know I'm a collective bargaining they cannot play streaking into an overall in that church I looked. The entire schedule. In there is not one day at the schedule is right now where it does not -- one or the other team that's reading rocks. -- and the only other action which I don't think they -- to go in and now Olympic break but they won't have their. Brad -- we wouldn't have neither goalie or are even config Denver at the season and -- see. What I like that it well. Place Saturday and Sundays of the next they'll beat it Tuesday because we wouldn't -- 38. -- they don't I'm pretty sure they would wanna do because of classes start Wednesday. Yeah so unlike what I did I didn't imagine it would really like I want going to be difficult to write it cannot vote for some -- affable Al. The waiting to do I think he can play a if you plated date early after the Olympic break -- a -- couple days of practice. My -- my best guess is they do it days early off the Olympic break. He act there would be a lack there was. On in the outlook analysts -- -- with all -- respect -- year number -- skills. Vietnam and I'd -- look at -- calendar there are. -- wizards are smarter that you -- combine that will figure out not that it IBM computer was in jeopardy if yours at. OK two black and wait like everybody outside of it but -- but I'm looking forward and planned haven't gondola came anyways -- charity managed. I have a good day. Thanks Mary and I put the Circuit City to about -- awful. You know pick those -- until -- -- games canceled events buff like okay when can make it the -- and look at the calendar because you don't want. I've gone through all the pantry I've -- organized every shelf and put every board gave the house. All the movies that I've wanted what was I'm. Game wasn't canceled it was post postponed right game was postponed which means moved to capitol clubs in Rochester Democrat and chronicle made that very clear yesterday and Twitter and with a different ones and what -- -- somebody but the difference there. Eight by the way. Tom I felt for every reporter last night and the news. That's what's in the late news and I just it is -- -- it is it's kind of funny but you know as reporters. Hey you know you know the deal you'd be a reporter at a news when there's a storm having your golden ticket they want to beat your right is storm. So watching last night. -- -- -- -- -- -- So they go let's go to away I was watching channel two right. Because that's a show that's station TDs on sports extra -- agreed to channel two and you know when I chipped. So I'm watching channel two and a big goal for two Kevin O'Connell now and they've got the four box right PD. -- year by his soul guy -- Kevin O'Connell the left corner you've got. -- Arctic -- BI is persons Danny he's in the upper right box Andrea Marvin is in the lower right back today at somebody else that I forget Yahoo!. I was at least got -- somebody over here so they're all outside right but let's first go to Kevin O'Connell. Now Kevin's got a -- on by the fireplace a couple of Coco -- and Eddie goes on for like ten minutes. Now but he's given pertinent information I'm kidding about the role -- -- upright but he's warm in the studio. And they showed these people outside have been set up on the live shot at the camera guy over there to run the camera right he bundled up its negative twenty out that that's what it feels like. And they can -- hope these people. Pour that though the worst of it had to be -- Andrea Marvin big like fifteen minute she's in Niagara Falls and I think the poor girls frozen and make their -- so. But I can cook is not easy to talk when it's cold outside dated a great job of delivering information so. I lives one man you'll watch. I always ask. I mean. Before we go outside I don't have -- off their year low let's -- that was just. Is it's tough stuff yet to be out there in reporting but you know -- that they do so now we're waiting on a date for that. The other news in an all you want us to talk about we will talk about week. BioWare back sabres hockey up by the -- for at least save restore here first Niagara center Kevin Sylvester Andrew Peters from view until. Noon today and Pakistani and -- had tickets at last night's game hang onto them. They'll be an announcement in -- day or so or when they can figure out where to fit that game in no easy task with the Olympic break -- fit this game in -- The finally -- mayor called it an issue last year. Where they've postponed game it was in Boston. Due to the it was Ottawa Boston I believe due to the bombing. And a it changed that game if I'm correct and believe that was the case. Right. -- either -- or Philly or Boston it was Ottawa was in Boston. Com and they postpone the game because the -- I mean rightfully so monitor the situation and a horrible figure out how to -- -- game -- figures out -- mean of the with the need to do. I do think it was the right decision because. As much as -- Reid traveled went to there be some fans who would risk it to say they were at the game. -- and it was worth risky. -- it was the other guaranteed there were I mean I just I sent out a tweet saying that I that they were going to play. And I had was -- responses. From people like I hope so because if they are ongoing and so. -- Now I'd I would wanna see anybody get hurt -- that's especially if -- player playing in your thinking. You know you don't want anybody to have to -- -- find out that somebody on the way to the game was was hurt badly the war. What if -- kids in the car and you know just and it just not worth it it's not worth it for birds for game. No it certainly not all right. The other big news other reports that temporary. Is going to become the new general manager the Buffalo Sabres. You know over the weekend reports Jim -- was a front runner and then Monday report said Tim Murray. Was the guy. That it came down to those two men now they're also was report that Jim betting that the Bruins did not want him to leave. Before the Olympics because of -- rally their general manager. Here is involvement with team Canada. And that they would wanna have. Him gone and there's top assistant gone. You know during the Olympics in the trade deadline coming up so quickly after the Olympics. Which hole but here's here's the rub for me and that if Jim betting was the top guy. If he was the top guy. And yet you take all the time to find the right guy. And I these -- just what -- -- take is I don't know that -- has told me or told you. We will talk to Pat LaFontaine at some point when the new general manager is named. But if he's the guy what -- B for buffalo or Calgary Wednesday. And you're the Bruins energy of Benin and you want to gig. Well that. Why would you let yourself be held back or why would you hold your -- back -- not that good practice. I would think. Business wise to say hey my it's a -- from me can be elevated to a position. And we're gonna hold him back but until this certain points. Maybe Peter surely has the luxury of doing that. In his contract well he's certainly done right so but it's not be an -- knowing that buffalo is there nobody know what the buffaloes and a crunch to find a general manager because -- -- aren't going to crunch right got to get this Ryan Miller -- sorted out right so maybe they have a timeline which they wanted to do so these same panel hypothetically. An affront to I cable breakage rate. They don't have people here who are snappy and and I can talk at a GMC Kevin de mining camp and grass. Well the general manager comes and it has and is. Goal is to keep Bryant Miller maybe he doesn't wanna trade Ryan Miller I mean if you're going to give the general manager of the freedom two -- it appears that he couldn't figure that out a week. At all we've heard from Darcy -- here on the show and -- was a general matter currently saying how hard it is to get a deal done and how. It doesn't just happen overnight I mean. In less of something already replacing your general manager maybe not site offline because I know you don't you don't need to output data Grimes knows negotiate during the Olympics ways trying to -- gold medal for team US. No no no of course not but -- I mean would you wanna have a general manager in place for the Olympics it is. For that time it's time off the you can sit around and meet talk get familiar with your team the surroundings the area I mean but -- but they here's my point. And I agree with you might use this. If you're the top two candidates you you -- present your case for all stuff what you wanna do to demand who is putting that direction. Pat a fun -- -- president of hockey operations says this is what it would you say give me your plan so he's picked the top two. And since the story been thought about forty. Been theorized that place in case you submit a plan. With easing given the current roster you wanna do I despite interest gain from Jim betting perspective if indeed. He was one of the top two guy I mean he's not only be if indeed he -- right we don't know if -- was right. Correct that is absolutely correct it needs to be said. Would you not be miffed. If buffalo said hey we want you and as oil amigo when that we're gonna move on. It's so difficult to get a general manager's job in the NHL. AP don't believe it's not difficult look at this search look at the candidates who -- who paid their dues throughout the leak of timber is GM. He's spent twenty years working in scouting. And front offices in the National Hockey League in age 51 simply needs 51 B fifty. Won't get his opportunity if indeed he's a guy that's how difficult it is your -- Jason potter role all along right. He's still apparently. He's not the guy. Right I mean he did the Pittsburg connection to be like the easy one and look how well he's thought of not gonna happen for him. There's other candidates he talked to not gonna happen for them. If this report is true about timber and there's too many people reported it. I think there's so it is is the question in the your ass man not say I don't know is it is would. Should and would. If these are the facts Jim banning the angry with the Bruins. -- -- -- -- Well I don't what he -- you he really. If you really wanted the job right and really wanted to be that generally are you not want that job laden yet between GM and Boston anytime soon. And all of me maybe he likes the -- maybe they're going to do maybe what Montreal didn't throw a few more -- -- him to stay like they did with Dudley. Good point soul good point he is I mean you know he's he's. Valuable within that organization needs you you see. Behind the B and in the meetings that they've had and the alien -- rally. Jim -- in there and they're leaning on him for some pretty. Heavy advice and player decision in in management and things like that so. -- that was the that was the case and and I don't know I mean. Is -- rally maybe a little insecure with Jim better betting underdog he's here all these are all back if this is all speculation so I mean. An end but realistic. And -- spirit SP on justices could be pretty realistic yeah if you wanna get out of the what's going on inside the mind of -- rally and everybody else but. Yeah I think that if that is the circumstance Jim Benning truly wanted to be the general manager of the Buffalo Sabres and Peter surely help them back. Outplayed and may not -- it what you may not be the case may not be the case what year I think inaccurate saying it's it could be a week. One off the job two men he -- them like it we would appoint anywhere -- -- gonna do it OK you know what I'm. That happens all the time -- business does -- not. It -- I suggested that's and act on all its not seen tiger -- but here's here's the ultimate point. They. -- down again. Reportedly. To two guys and -- or it's somebody good somebody qualified somebody who's. Paid their dues and as witnessed how it's done. In the national hockey where you know they don't do wide hole. It is temporary again assuming college report torture like at a stop -- fine now okay. -- I know it's emerged a great GM no I don't know that would be great GM but there's a lot of evidence that says he's going to be good at it it's a lot Abbott says it's going to be good hire. Because of his experience. In the week guess -- that before but I look -- we've been. Worked under. He's worked and Brian Burke if were -- bribery who loses on goal and he'll -- He can say what you want about Ottawa what they've done a great job would be relevant here for quite some time. Quite some time and he he built a Calder cup winning team in -- in 2011. So oh. I look what he's done and what he's been a part of whom they've drafted in some of the traits that he's been involved in making with the Ottawa and you have to say you like some way yeah. Have to note too that Pat LaFontaine has done his due diligence I mean. There's no question that this isn't like hey let's let's just picked this name out of a hat perfect soul you know there's there's. A method here and there's there's. You know calculation and and reasoning behind. Why it is why it's to marine and only reports I've ever heard of Tim Murray. Our. That he can identify talent. And he's not going to. Make a decision based on emotion you'll make a decision based on because it's the right decision for the hockey team and is that kind of what you want yes. I think that and as a player. That's what you want to know that you know what the decision that is being made is is a business decision and it's not. That the guy likes your doesn't like you're at least keeping him because he's married to you or whatever. If it's gonna benefit the hockey team. Got to meet the deal and that's what's gonna happen and and that's what that's that's what this organization needs when it's going to come down the Ryan Miller decision you need someone to -- and that doesn't have that. You know they can just make make that decision and and move on right. It's January 8 and year roughly two months from the trade deadline little under two months of the trade deadline. But here's the other thing I like about this and I like about the two. Finalists if you well. In Murray in Benin but -- folks summary these are. Assistant general managers. Who work in your division and and -- this for two reasons number one their familiar with you very familiar with you and they're very familiar with your HL team. They know what you have in the system. -- doubt it. So and they've seen it in person quite a bit. As opposed to somebody in the western conference -- so they wouldn't get up to speed but. They're very familiar secondly they order takes to win your division -- be one of the top three your division which is maybe more important. Going forward incidents this year to make the playoffs instead of trying to be one of those two wildcard spots they know it's going to take to beat. I didn't team that they came from mean Austin and. Ottawa. To get up there so I like that whole lot -- was a team also lets remember that hasn't had the luxury of building. Our number one graphics either mean what was the highest traffic they -- roster Spezza still. Now they -- them terrorists. Well that they've drafted. -- karlson and there's Colin Carlson. Right to defense and Karlsson was one. I was girls wanna say he's top ten -- we can look it up but yet he was. Year Myers distressed. OK but they've also had two yards and I want it that may -- they can get my point is is they've had to bring players and -- had to manage to assign what Clarke MacArthur Bobby Ryan you bring in the goaltender David made traits for all goaltenders made trades in the settlement is some of their defensemen. You know they -- -- Not just do it and sit back and wait -- -- it is to stay competitive while losing. Some very very key players. Well and they've treated significant players. Did Danny Heatley was treated. They brought him -- we have players here that are significant that may need to be treated. Yes. Certainly there are -- -- -- some decisions. 42 memory if he is the general manager. When he NIC immediately the next few months this season what he needs to be gone. And when he does this roster and as a valuation of Ted -- -- that's certainly in other thing too bad. It's hard to argue the job that no one has done Ryan Miller was the biggest of those decisions. I'm hoping for. Win. He comes in -- as a general manager can deal ports are so. -- as it develops here in the next few days that timing is right. Heading into the Olympics.
