That's how you that's what you're doing when you play this -- trying to get matches did wrong. Or else on the text line thyme sage and. Some pretty good ones Betty White Morgan Freeman Ron Burgundy Ozzy Osbourne and my favorite and I wish this was my answer is the Swedish yeah oh yeah. Bird like Ron Burgundy two good answers right there tremendous. I wanna see if Joseph wants to give us some draft thoughts here we did we did advertise that. You if you -- and like couple minutes -- Joker let me just tell -- couple more things about the Olympics Olympics coverage. All that curling is on. It's again this time around NBC. CNBC. NBC sports network is big they're like can be like animals Walt -- They have a lot of coverage that makes sense yeah. USA MSNBC and also online. NBC Olympics dot com a thousand hours. Most of the big events. Will be on live. At NBC Olympics dot com not the opening ceremonies. Tomorrow. But if you have cable or satellite provider that has NBC. What I read was. Whatever password you used say for on demand shows or whatever you use -- Linked to your. On TV provider you can take that to the web. Maybe people -- on this and log and NBC Olympics account and watch as much of that thousand hours as you want. If you don't have that you don't have your own accounts. You can only watch very little amount at trial you get one half an hour in the -- you'll often so you need that to get online that they need to watch at all three. I -- you know. And tonight it's. Would recite freestyle skiing snowboarding and figure -- just a quick thing to throw around before we turn it over to Joseph here. I'm conflicted about this. The events are going to be 78 hours ahead. And here we are we of course want people listened our show. -- go to do that to see if Ryan Miller got traded. On Monday or whatever like I -- -- the roster freeze in -- -- just to get news and here are conversations. And then it at sports. We're gonna tell them whether Shaun White won gold or what happened and it's gonna catch some people off guard right. Because what we like a lot of us like about the Olympics because we don't really care that much that we need to know at the time like the Saber skiing you wouldn't taped it watched the next day. But you get home from work and you wanna sit down what your wife and watch whatever they're going to show we like the packaged. Olympics. And that -- -- people when we do that those people will be annoyed after listening to us in the here awhile and certain of the figure skating gold or something like that so. Do we definitely wanna do that via us. Yeah I yeah I I think -- yeah I its sports news. I'm sorry -- that taco citing people can make a choice I I I've found. I watched the primetime stuff to. In the evenings of my family. Maybe I suppose you would all like I port city here all afternoon and hear the result of the swimming. And then go home and might not be a 100% sure who's gonna win like -- so many events is so now women's. Figure skating. Is not like that there are. Dozens of its women's figure skating the -- like you're gonna. Have a hard time forgetting that I guess but. I -- -- on people without goes. Oscar -- -- I at all late. I don't feel like conflicted about it I think it's easier thank you Jesus did tell -- the news and it's their choice they know you know we might wanna. Package some sort of a little. A warning -- spoiler alert like you're like a quick easy you know. They're I'm about to give you some Olympic results of you don't wanna -- the local. I'm pretty sure we did that the now for -- maybe two years ago. Maybe which one under for the summer games yeah definitely 56 hours ahead that's about right that's what we would have done. But that it can't be -- to do that you can't turn people away from your station which is the thing you don't know wanted to wanna do that that's why everything we do -- like just and so particular about it. Like like everybody is just go right you don't say. Turn us off. Goal goal goal and we were -- not come back. Make this interesting make this moment really -- thing like when I mentioned that my shoe was torn right and I was dynamite I don't know who would have ever change that no no one would have they'll. -- Olympic roundups will be on WGR from ten to midnight starting tomorrow. So those are shows the you don't you're getting there. You'll go to the Olympic round -- show if you're trying not to fight out things about one. Olympic -- tend to midnight. And we will also have the hockey tournament starting next Thursday. Some games will be and WGR some games will be -- Beef came being ESPN radio the first USA game against Slovakia next Thursday morning will be on KB. And then USA Russia next Saturday will be on GR so no hobbies. Despite some beer cart -- Joseph -- We have another ESPN mock draft today. Yeah acting you. And the timing be any better I mean last time those around Tom brought this up when I first got into it was their first mock draft little. You know. Unveiling -- last time round and that that was just in the last time I was here on days that you're in this is happening thing so hyper and it -- both did their own. That -- I took a look at on the table that their own thing and one of them has -- taken some tacklers them. I consider doing I can see it happening but it's not like deathly. But the other one has them taking the most explosive wide receiver. Sammy -- yeah. You don't Sammy Watkins and sort out and I I love Sammy Watkins I think he could be. An absolutely dynamic fit for any offense. And when he talked about what aging annual does. And how he kinda gets the ball to his receivers in eight. -- -- area or at least he did last year and that's how the -- it was kind of predicated for him. Having galaxy Amy Watkins who. And take a five yard reception. And turn in the sixty in a snap of a finger. I mean that's. That's to me is someone who is a deal. And he can go up in and get the ball if you -- if you wanna go vertical with them he plays like he's six foot 46 foot five he's got back but he. Not these sort 61 -- -- just under 61 okay whose army is now luckiest. Mark he's good don't know he's he's a -- is a good size guy just not a giant like Micah Wright. And that's key. That's the I guess that the tractor for a lot of fans up there saying all know we need that Mike -- guy because he's 64225. Go get him go get a Kelvin Benjamin -- six foot five to 35. -- Sammy Watkins. Even though he isn't as tall as these guys he can play. As big as them I mean Evans is the best jump ball guy in the draft no doubt about him however. With the type of other things that Sammy Watkins brings the table I just think it's it's a runaway for who's the best wide receiver mr. They're too I remember correctly that he was a bills -- yet Watkins throwing up and bill spent -- will try that much harder of course. The bills player always he would want it that much more. What are the chances the best wide receiver in the draft which is what -- in it is makes it to the bill that someone thinks so. Yeah I'd topic -- had Sammy Watkins go on to the bills in this in this version east February 6 different asking you if you agree with that you think he'll get that far. I if you had asked me right now -- probably say no but. I wouldn't totally rule it out just because. Just because the the whole idea that there might be a lot of quarterbacks taken in the top four -- and this works for milk diapers. Mock draft as well. Mean they've got. You know Johnny B and sell it got late portals that got Teddy Bridgewater some have -- are all going in that top eight that pushes some of the top talent down so. Huge -- be on clown he's going to be in the top eight. So there's five spots right there somebody will take offensive tackle somebody will take and -- to tackle -- Robinson or Matthews dog that's six so if someone goes off the board in name doesn't take a lock in and takes what Syria -- and actually a Mac. Or let's say they take the other tackle Jake Matthews or a pass rusher like Anthony -- something like that maybe. Then all assailant gets pushed out in because of that the bills could be in a pretty good spot to to claim I playmaker if if they do what I think they should do you know or claim tackle that could fall down like a Matthews were Robinson. You are of the mind that I am angry which is real some sort of a receiving weapons site you love Watkins if Watkins were to be gone. And the bills were still of the mind to draft of receiving weapon would you would you go. Out -- he brought I think he could offer more to EJ Manuel. At this point game in both their respective careers venom like I know you did the work on the tight -- are ready and all available at WGR affected -- dot com. It. Of just a few words on him like what what sort of what sort of proud how big is -- what. To compare with the big shot tight ends in the NFL right now what kind of players well he's. His size right now ESPN's scouts think had a listed as 231 which is light on the tight end side college listing has -- to 45 never trust those. The six foot four to 31. You know fifteen to forty -- by the time coming -- and he has the frame to do. Then he could be one of those guys that the kind of sky rockets a lot like Vernon Davis did in blow way to come by now the thing with. I mean you you watch him he moves like a wide receiver. And he's able to set up his routes. He's he's a good route runner he's got he can make highlight reel catches one hand catches he does have some lapses in concentration world where it'll drop some passes. But you get him anywhere in the open field. He can Boston huge gain in that something dynamic tight and may not a lot of teams have that so to me. If I were faced with a situation room saying OK Mike Evans Eric. Pairing him with EJ Manuel I'm taking your -- on every. Interest thing. But is Sammy Watkins -- Eric he brought got you in -- Three months away. Come by next week combined February 19 I'm leaving for Indianapolis. Just -- the airfare. Two days ago. -- -- the hotels come through so we're going to go elsewhere two weeks where can folks find all your stop the WG Arafat attitude I'll just go right on there and you can hover over the football tagged in and hit Joseph will be strapped blog or you confided in the -- opinion section and you've done. What positions are still to come. Well I've pass rushers well I've only done for positions. I've done wide receivers -- tackles offensive guards in tight ends -- working -- pass rusher working. That's the next one and quarterbacks in and running backs and linebackers and just go straight on the west aren't. Joseph stick around if you would we've got the -- pregame show next and we have more to -- Perfect pass that seven more minutes into Emory coming up. Also Ted Nolan of course and Matt Ellis on the pregame show tonight for the final sabres team. Before the Olympic break that starts for them after this one the NHL still -- life for a couple of days the trading deadline is tomorrow -- Go overall lead here in the next hour. Sabres and senators pregame next here on WGR. All starts. You know new arrow for the Buffalo Sabres smooth silver comes back. Pass on. I feel very privileged and lucky that. Every play. -- Yeah -- yeah. This is the call William -- pregame show. On the Buffalo Sabres radio network. -- most of the sabres after this game tonight in Ottawa. It is off to the break. For the senators it is off to Boston may have a game on Saturday. In Boston's they're not gone after this one welcomed the hallway of adults pregame show here on WGR much -- the Bulldog with you with the sabres visiting the senators tonight. And then it's break time. And with robbery earlier we talked about this might be exported to the airport and yes I would take this team -- -- it looked a little bit less than the doctor team ready for. You know they were killed. -- -- -- -- One in wind and go to the beach. All able to might be wondering the same -- when he went -- you go to the beach. Any time sooner what. MX -- procedure done next week so I did I get the front of that meeting and have that at the beach maybe there's still time to arrange I don't know. Well what do you think last night simply one team out placing another. That in. By the third period I just -- their passion was gone so -- Ted Nolan. Steve ought to extremely upset exception to be an even insinuating that. But. Ted Nolan but the same -- -- idea you could just feel the building it was like the air is out of the building the air was not -- team. They just. There was just no passion on their game by a third at first heard there was enough there. Yeah a big gum that's why I said what I said there at the outset nearly through the break probably can't come soon enough Paula mean we know. Especially while we were sitting through a lock out last year and seeing pictures of hockey players on the tops of casinos and stacks of money. You know it's a good life you know the -- worked hard to get there but they're paid well they travel well and and the and you know it's it's great but. This season has got to be testing. The patient some guys that are competitive -- -- Munis had not a chance since you know the middle of October. And they start to get blown out -- gains to -- which wasn't happening before and now. As far as I was concerned last night was applaud not as bad as Colorado that the Colorado game happen. And I think I eroded in the second period and on the start to look more immoral and Colorado game as we go and never stopped just up looking like it. And maybe just got better goaltending in this one they got the Colorado game. Would you think that Nolan would. Try to impress upon the team tonight don't go don't go one break early. Oh absolutely. That you little testy today to. As you'll see you know he didn't wanna talk about what he's -- team to -- during -- here. He basically passed on a lot of answers. Are able to line -- changes here. Now markets fully know is in the doghouse -- Ted Nolan and he will not play in. -- marks -- against the that was Selena and cannot go back in the lineup and Myers is not years so a lot. According to know when he tried again yesterday and it works O line you guys and he often -- right through the break. Drew Stafford with a goal last night he starting to score even when before he got he was scoring he came out of the lineup now again last night what what do you think. All the sabres ought to be thinking. About Stafford at this point is he someone -- -- it could be eager to trade him they could be eager to not trade him I don't know what what do you think. They should be thinking about him. I can tell you that know what. Lights up but whether that's enough I don't know as far as being eager to trade him I would -- I mean there's a taker certainly I would. Excuse me I would take it because let's face it there's just the street city goes on our great streaks but they're just few and far between. And sometimes you have to wait two years form like this time -- army is on a streak like this was the end of the season two years ago when Alito had just come up. And he went on to your -- and little more incidents. So. Italy he's not a very good streak now you know he's a decent hockey player but. If he gets into these mental flunks and is a hard time getting on them. -- will get the official lineups in the goalies and everything my little bit later on we visit with you. -- to game time but it's and -- tonight right. -- Roth is in goal again I asked Ted Nolan. You know is that something insisted he did that maybe. Miller didn't wanna play because the Olympics are holly goes he's just not playing so it isn't him. Donating it almost sounded like he wasn't totally behind -- If you to pick -- -- check out Reggie Jackson with a certain that it. Was the exit with reality you yes you'll enjoy it he knew he was good. One last -- -- -- -- -- actually for -- child so it. Was -- for the time it was a now he was playing for the new year he was an adult. Okay. On the higher I seriously government leaders and built because. Wall all the undergo. Up up up up up I hope all our lineup again in their you know he's a melodic. Pop up. Think people. Yes. The sabres fifteen and 41. Through 56 games. -- -- know. Eight overtime and shootout wins eight overtime and shootout losses. 38 points fewest in the league by. Six. Auto law 2521. And 1125 and 32. The senators have 61 points they are at the moment. One point out of a playoff spot lots of traffic. In the Eastern Conference number top three. Parts of it per division excuse me. And then two wildcard spots and right now 62 points. Is that number the red wings the flyers the Blue Jackets all -- 62 points but you have Ottawa 61 and three other teams at 59. A lot of business to figure out and there are like Ottawa's team among these teams at large are not necessarily the best of them but. -- -- -- I'm thinking I should be a playoff team. Specially because the competition around his little bit light even Toronto or Montreal were few points ahead of the Ottawa has a better team than both those teams. So I'd be thinking positively I wanna be a buyer here at the deadline it sounds like they wannabe. The other GM Bryan Murray to -- uncle was talking today about looking for a top six forward in being unable to find a partner. That might be because a lot of those guys end up that get moved -- moved closer to be real trading deadline out there's artificial one that's been created by the Olympic break so. We'll see about that. But dumb you know met Molson is a player who fits that profile. And he's been rumored to be of interest Ottawa and a number of other -- but I wouldn't think he gets moved until much closer to -- not right on. That. Speaking of their team Yarwood Bobby Ryan is -- spotlight -- to be to pick somebody out on the sabres side here. I'm picking him mainly because Tim Murray who came from Ottawa was apart of the front office there that made that deal. And we're talking so much about deals and Bobby Ryan is having a nice year mean Ottawa's battling to get in but he's got twenty goals -- to assist. And he was rumored to be on the block for like two years. And his name was at various times attached to the sabres and could never figure out a way to make that happen. Last offseason Ottawa went and did and now to Emery is the -- -- Marie might also have been involved in drafting him. With Anaheim and Anaheim. It also ball on alcoholic. And I'm taking you'll offer your spotlighted matchup train here but multi -- public that was a big trade to -- made. With. Chi -- the Danny Heatley trade was NATO's place auto has made some big moves which gives me. More hope for what could happen here love on the trade that Italy would anybody think that trades could or should help the sabres mean there'll last. But they're fun there interest now. Spot to match at a rescue by do you -- colleges international business program you'll college educating -- life. Well it was the best player on the sabres the did not make the Olympics may be questioner off. Because his team -- Germany's not in the in the Olympics right otherwise he'd have been harsher Ryan and Kyle tourists. Our two players that one might think about the Olympics not being their tourists. Is not controversial I would say no not being on the roster the right up I just read it espn.com about this game -- focuses on terrorists not being picked which is a little strange he did. Play a big role in their last deem a comeback win in Saint Louis making the senators the first Eastern Conference team this season. To get even one point. In Saint Louis. And they were down in the third period came back and eventually won the game in a shootout I believe so Ottawa. A nice job doing that in their their last outing buffalo and Ottawa tonight. We don't have the spotlighted matchup for you here so we'll break a little bit early I'm sorry we don't have inside the numbers we just did spotlighted matchup. We sort of inside the numbers will break a little bit early come back with. Tim Murray there will move Ted Nolan too little bit later memories longer Paul Hamilton. And the media in Ottawa with the sabres general manager new stuff more -- Next here on the -- -- -- pregame show which opened the Bulldog here this is WGR. Fifteen minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance. Welcome back to the hallway of belts pregame show the final. Pregame show the final game before the Olympic break the sabres are off after tonight's visit to Ottawa. Until February 25. When they host Carolina in a rescheduled game will be home Tuesday Wednesday Friday that week to the hurricanes Bruins and sharks. The NHL schedule runs through Saturday night so the league doesn't shut down the night -- games tomorrow and Saturday Ottawa plays. Again for the break Saturday in Boston also. Aries this trading freeze during the Olympics. -- Team general managers. Really get caught talking about moves with each other. They have their phones tapped or something. I don't know how how reliable was the honor system here. Whatever it really means they're not supposed to be able they can't make moves at least. Between tomorrow at 2 eastern 2 PM eastern. And February 23 that's when the gold medal game is played Sunday morning February 23. To be heard live on WGR by the way at least 6:30 AM our time. Lot of information right there. The sabres fate is in the hands of general manager Tim Murray. Who of course came from auto lowers uncle Bryan Murray runs the show here is to -- with the local media including our -- Hamilton earlier. Today is more fielding calls and making calls right now in your situation I would say it's. I'm making a lot of calls but I'm making and you guys called me first so the teams that have showed the most interest in certain players. I'm obviously trying to keep in contact with them every day and zero point. I I I never expected this deadline to be. I shouldn't say deadline and ever expected. Tomorrow or whatever it is that line so. Just nature of the game I mean you know it if we don't trade anybody we've lived through the Olympic break and and you can make a deal after it sold. The economics of the game and everything else. The possibility of injuries at the Olympics for those personal. I never expected them to get them quickly. You're gonna do a lot of scouting during the Olympic break out. If you see general manager ray. That narrative guys have been are you guys allowed to talk at least trades during that breaker can't -- even to custom. Well I'm certainly gonna talk about it that I don't know if they're gonna talk about it or listen or not but no I mean you you talk every day every kind of talks during the prayer. It -- And exactly and waiting for the right deal. I don't know I don't know -- deal is gonna come along so. It's not when it's -- more so than when I I just think that. Their past to be certain. Types of players and prospects involved in a deal like that all. I just neither team that thinks the same way. As you enter your first street period here where there's a mini van Janice knew him when it's on the challenge you face him. All the challenges that. I'm new so I think that. I think there are established GMs that -- wanna test me and that's fair I mean. Rookie players get tested all the time and hopefully that my support staff. The guys that I talk to -- in our organization about trades. Point me in the right direction so -- my ideas and I certainly want involve other people in the organization and so. The challenges that I haven't. I know all these gyms but I haven't had a I don't have a circle of guys they talk to Donny Maloney today about that he said you know yeah. You end up with certain guys you trust and and those guys you probably deal with more so than others and I don't have that right now but I'm comfortable in the fact that. I've been around the game long time and I've been around these guys and I know them also. I don't think they're gonna help me but I I don't think that they. You know feel that they can. Pull the wool over my eyes or something like that so I think it's all it's all been -- -- -- -- Was it at all strange to walk this building -- the enemy here you're no longer with that we're the enemy was little bit this bit strange I drove through the gate like -- own the building and then and I had to -- -- -- instead of -- coming in this story humanist story and they. It. Everybody -- it no matter what they do that changes in the lives and you just you just go with it and that you can't dwell on anything and you just. Just come in here hope to get two points this. Spring rates on the line. I'd like to win tonight I know that for sure. That's voted I mean we've been together a long time I I I faced him with different teams before think that the Rangers. They -- New York their first game they -- in there when I was a part of the team and I was actually in New York for the game and they spank us pretty good in New York with this team your -- on me. You know that the American League team has played against terrorists in a few times in the last couple years and so. It's it's every it's almost. Handled so well and you guys. So I used with certain players and here's how much fun because I've asked for certain things and he won't give it to Seoul and that's. You know -- no I mean hey I. Of all the GM they know. Him more so than anybody else what they're thinking what they how they value players. I think I know his organization pretty well sold there might be. A little hesitation on the on the outside of it I don't know but. Talking to him is this disease. Because we know which -- the -- also. If I could do a deal with that might love the -- -- And I just I just you know I think any deal. They you do you you feel that you know war vote. Your organization on the other guy. And maybe that's not the case here maybe I know as much about his organization as he does so. That maybe I don't but I certainly think I -- so. It's -- not hesitation just -- It's it's something that's not. That doesn't happen everyday in our game. If you could help heat -- -- that helps you get to earlier right now. This seemed to be quite the scenario now. Don't. You think you know there is no. All. That. No I think -- look at if the deal makes sense I. I'm not shy about making a deal with obviously I'm not at all. If if it made sense for both sides. Again I would have no problem can do with them that. He's one of the good guys obviously you guys know I think that so. To be eager to make it with a I'd love there to -- my mentor. In the game obviously it would be I think it'd be pretty cool to make you know for sure. I think I think ever pretty good feel now. Like I said all along I I believe that you know I knew that they -- pretty well the hours. A draft picks there's still a junior -- and the American League guys they did or swollen and I still don't know them a 100% but I use that's for -- sports for. You get ideas from them get a there there -- reasons for drafting guys. And what they think they're gonna become sole. I learn every day and that's I think that's -- we're -- source who's just try to get better predict. -- -- timber appropriately and I expect you. OK Paul. You. -- Tim Murray there and more to. Digest from the sabres GM. Lot about. Dealing with Ottawa in there naturally. I don't care. The deal with a lot of -- broker the deal with no home neither bill that he does know old. It. -- go I I I think you know the one thing that he did say that was actually there. Is you usually if you're making a deal you think you know you organization better than the guy you're dealing with obviously you're the manager of the Buffalo Sabres you handle that. He's -- could be old Ottawa. He knows Ottawa to like it's definitely been at least as well right is he holed insult me in his pocket that maybe he never told the spotlight out of all -- That doesn't seem that likely. But. Still he would know better then. And I'd say your wife -- and -- that towards Dallas police he never worked well what's in the system and who's there. We have Ted Nolan coming up and met Ellis too -- we continue on the Paul William belts pregame show. Mike -- the Bulldog here that trade deadline.
