This past few days is not first those players that you mentioned have their names in the paper or mention in certain circumstances so it was really is a month ago I was had some concerns about those situations and both players but again it's it's one thing that's in the back your mind that you do you understand as a player but you have to also play within yourself to play. A lot of that talk a lot of that rumors are a lot of times just that announcement they're not even realize that I your dress that would player. Which has some cases or to talk to players. The couple weeks ago. Playoffs and surely Steve martyr immunity to be passed myself I when Favre tied off Michael Leighton and that Tyler Ennis picked up the empty netter basically. The side and the way it did I know I can think of visitors and Selena fans are going knots and then there and Enzo came flying out the game innovators are never enough money to him and Jimmy even bigger target is for especially had a chance to go home and sent to try to close officers obviously didn't go the way we wanted to but it's I mean that's that's farmers favorite memories here. That's Mike Webber when he was asked what his favorite memory as they favor once again about a before that. Hey it's our favorite game called which microphone is working for Jeremy let's. All the way. Germany listeners are just as happy to just left an awful. Apparently this one's gonna work got great op I wanna say. You know it's one of those things where when somebody leaves or someone die days. You're not supposed to say anything mean or nasty son of his seeming mean about Mike Webber. Bought one of my Mike Webber memories in scolding fans for rooting for the team in the long term. You know and people thought he was in bounds on that and to be honesty probably wants. But that's definitely Mike Webber memory was after that big Arizona game when the sabres lost and fans cheered it. He was full goalie upset this really mad about it and you can understand why he was. I don't hold that against them now and I don't think they look at this when Steve Ott got on fans for Bowen the night of the Jersey game and couldn't get out of their own and for two minutes. In any one of people we around you can Wear your own team never does that I'm pretty sure I've I've probably booed my own teams at times over the years. So. Eight kudos to Tim Murray we we were talk about the other day do you wait to the last moment you just you get a good deal you move on a third round pick from Mike Webber Wright. And he's he's a guy who is it's clearly not gonna be a part of this defense going fault yeah I wasn't part of the defense now level on going forward. Right you get the impression that Murray is slowly purging just about every piece that was here before his time. Now the only pieces left or one like fully Null and had a before fully know what I want to win a first and it's who he resigned. And it's and it's Alina when other than that everybody's been brought in by. Tim Murray Gionta Molson notable his moves Reinhardt I that there was Patrick was at six Darcy draft pick yup that's right. There's not much left Larson's he'd is a dark or trade them. Glory days is. That was Marie. Bailey's them draft pick up you know if you go far enough back for in depth draft picks are gonna run and everybody of course but. Franzen Georgia's Bogosian wrist the line and is not Darcy I'm sorry is not Marie but. Most of the team now looks like it's up it's Tim Murray's team now that it didn't before the Webber trade for that matter. A lever to Washington for a third round pick when you trade. Gain depth defenseman off your team who is playing he played an awful lot this year 35 games I thought he actually played well the day was okay he missed thirteen. You have a fuel fans a few observers that are still thinking that Mike Webber was actually. Helping them be bad. And that wasn't the case relief this year I mean he's not playing well yeah yeah he's got a great defenseman by any stretch. But it wasn't like last year where we talked about old no trading this person hurts the sabres tank. Weber how means a player that's not as good as him goes in. And once they trade another player maybe it's. Franzen if he's healthy but probably not looks like he's a ways away so that injury might prevent them from treating him for Carly aka bush put got a plate tonight right coal Yakov OS to go and here's a guy has been healthy scratch for how many games this well it's possible Cole got Kabul. You make this trade now the trying to Coley operable three games that look decent in the trade and trade him he's an unrestricted free agents so they can you be caught Carl local doc double for a seventh or sixth round picker on Iraq. And 2018. I'm well to give you whatever you need and I you can take him. Or you pay just for an insurance policy on your defense which is what Washington just date but if you're gonna trade away guided place for you which Webber does for a third round pick. In two years. And retain half the salary. Mean you're just buy in traffic is right that's at the sabres are are buying draft picks and when ownership is willing. To retain salary like that if they don't retain salary maybe they get a fourth or maybe get a fifth. It basically becomes a video one million dollars to move that up around okay sounds good we get this player for half the price do yeah that's that's a pretty good deal. Yeah it's like it's it's good again it's a no brainer move. He he wasn't going to be here as part of the future plan so you're gonna move and out and you get something forma third round pick is that a good pick that have for. For Mike Webber did not plan a regular basis of lies they set I thought he was playing better this season. And and look I felt I felt good for Webber I mean I know he talked about how it was a rough moment for him. If it's a tough day this is the this is the only organization I'd he's been and he's been in that for what ten years now and you know and yeah yeah opera family and things like that but. Washington so I don't know how much gonna play for the capital but there's a team you wanna be. Playing for right now. Congratulations. Washington Capitals is a great landing spot of you being traded out of buffalo right now yet if he plays I mean I might play not play too much but. A secure get in sometime in the makes admitted out of the playoffs at all but but you know hopefully we'll get an all time in the regular season with somebody gets hurt then he goes in the lineup. Yeah it's been so lucky he has or how lucky they are a few. You know go through the playoffs and stay relatively healthy that does wonders for your team it's injuries over the course of those three months that. Contended change an entire season it'll be interesting to see now. Who's left Monday at three. Like you know as McGinn is definitely right on that is temporary just has a list on as a vote on the the grease board in his office or the wall is got a chart all the US phase aegis. Scratch one guy out just put a lot okay Weber line through him and yes boom boom boom boom right I don't I wouldn't expect any these guys to get anything. Like you said if you get out. A sixth round pick for collar call Arco. I would assume is gonna move Chad Johnson and everybody else he can move by the deadline and maybe mcginnis a second rounder next year you can't get a second rounder this year maybe it's. Third rounder this year and again one day also retain half the salary how much you allowed to retain. Because if you're allowed to retain two thirds of it I think it's up to path but I'll I'll double check the rules on that. I would not be surprised that they retain some salary and again what's the cost. Yeah you know if you're Tim Murray you go to ownership and say listen they've got this we've got this deal on the hook and by the way after doing awfully should be asked and retain salary every time. They've done with pom and bill they'd done it with the Hispanic Miller. Now whenever they retain salary all the time because they can't they're willing to pay it. And if you're a team let's say I am. Chicago I called I want Jamie became prime L that one team again. I say all right this great what are you what you need psychotropic sounds great you're gonna go ahead retain as much salary as is a lot right. And why wouldn't you if you're the sabres your on the retaining it for. A couple months. As a free agents. You can retain three salaries at once and all that and all three these guys are beyond expiring contracts. You can keep up to I've found this article from January of 2014. When Omid was that later anywhere I think you yet January 2014. I think this is before. Miller anyway what does matter here's what it says you can keep up to 50% of the cap and salary commitment to a player you'd trade partner keep up after the sabres kept the maximum. On Weber you can only have such commitments to three players at any given time. And that's all the sabres have its commitment to Webber because the other ones would have expired grab once they run out than your fine and you connect your total to get up to three again. The total of your quote retained salary. Can't exceed 15%. Of the caps upper limits though we're talking and that's that's over ten million Iraqis asked that the sabres and rocket hit that. So when you trade Jamie McGinn if you retain half of his salary. Whoever's acquiring McGinn is getting him for one point five million dollars. And the cap it would be pro rated to a one point five million dollar player. With that but that does for the sabers about all you can still get there's what that you can't require a player if you do this you can't trade him retain his salary and require him. Unless he's a free agent his contract expires some again they could retain salary and they could still sign him in the OxyContin for so again it would be at one point five roughly and that would make him fell to every team in the NHL. Hey you once again for one point five. Right ought to bargain it's beautiful. For our for our proven guy fifteen to twenty goal scorer I could put on the power play a good veteran player. The took me around for the playoffs I get I I think begins a nice acquisition now. You know he's a top six forward here if the a playoff team that's acquiring or trading for this rental and Jamie began he's a bottom six fort I assume. But the third line forward Jamie begin for a playoff run and you give up. The second pick third whatever you giving up for him it's not a first. And it gets mr. McCain salary that's a bargain for urging him again I'd make that trade to good piece to add to my puzzle of bomb in the playoffs. And in the meantime. Mike Webber yeah for. I it's just you know when you saw the news yesterday is that okay rather traded Mike Webber I mean it's it's it's I don't expect a torrent of phone calls this morning. Its artists he might caller glad to see Mike go Mike Webber I mean the guy had limitations to his game. Played as hard as he could block shots but it was not the best defenses in the world as they set I thought I thought he was playing better this season. But nobody's you know nobody's gonna that much of an eyelash hero for Mike Webber leaving at the question is what form. They're all I gut whose next. Is he a big enough peace freedom watch Washington and root for Washington. We've done this with Miller and panic but common bill with. All stand with with a lot of offense to Mike I don't I don't mean this personal pleas that they dispersal now the media. I might root for Washington anyway I mean Mike Webber at his best. Is a 56 defenseman and it tests. You know maybe he was pressed into more of that at times by the Buffalo Sabres but is a 56 on some teams he's a seven. He's that he's a veteran insurance policy who is in your top six when a guy needs a night off. So. I'm going to guarantee. Lockett in mcginniss moved YouTube. I think it will pass to move he will absolutely do it I I I just think if you're McGuinn. I wouldn't expect begin to re sign right now. And Tim Murray again I keep going back to what he said it is on Mike and Chris he does not like to lose players for nothing. That being said mcginnis a good commodity that trade right now. That's is that's that's set of the guys that are under contract that's his best trade piece right now. So yeah I'd I'd be very surprised to begin doesn't go McGinn spoke yesterday about this about his current contract what's going on and here's McCain with ball Hamilton about. The extension. That's a good thing for sure but I'm just keep my cleared trying to sell them on my agent do his job so hopefully they're talking and we'll see what happens but I'm here play hockey in October or you know. Mr. I can't buffalo but sometimes talk is business any. You know like the outcome some times but my job is play and play the best my abilities and a couple of my teammates and you know I do it here but we'll see that happened. Now that's a lot softer than how Jose Batista said it I like it a muffled sometimes hockey's a business and everyone thinks it does about right. Batiste no no that's got a 150 million dollar Ellis is it. No hometown discount I am but the east is labeled as a jerk right it's it's I think it's a softer way to say I like it here but you know sometimes hockey's a business. I think look at climb again. And I think in most cases with what we've talked about with courting Glenn two out I think I'd ideally I'd like to hit the market and see what's out there. And again if if you're Jamie McGinn if you may be as happy here he wanted to play and wants to stay here which would be great. I think it's very simple if your begin you know pay. If they're negotiating a deal. And it's not the begins liking you can say I wanna check out the market you can also customary. Here what are the chances you want me back would you guys be into resigning me. If you trade me and I'm in the free agent market in July. Is it possible you guys would look to respond via liked it I'd like to keep open the possibility of coming back yourself up if I'm again I'm this close. I'd like to be traded to a team that's gonna be in the playoffs I'd like to be in the playoffs this year and last here exhausted and had big plans to some think he hired a right here and wanted it to be you know what I plan to cruise related April I'd rather stay here you catch of the grunt Chris I don't think it's our right. I would want to I'd trade me now get into a playoff team might get a nice playoff round hopefully and then I hit the market and if buffalo wants me back I'm happy here. Great all signed with buffalo. If not. Someone's gonna pick up Jamie McGinn I'm not gonna have a problem finding a suitor. On the open market plunging again. So I would think you just play it out right now on weight she would Tim Murray does and you wouldn't sign and you expect to be traded by Monday at 3 o'clock. The sabres out west and think that. Factors in at all I don't think the outcome of these games factors in at all it's kind of nice you've got to GM it's got. You know of vision of what he wants ultimately beat. When Dan miles a weekly becoming coming into the segment says they talked to certain players about these rumors what's real what's fake couple weeks ago. Wouldn't surprise me if they told. Again you're we're gonna yeah we're gonna move you will will keep you posted who was in diet or. You know you can go that far and tell them it's down to LA and Saint Louis or. He's he's absolutely going to be an open and let Juan I think probably will also like line as A insurance policy. Just. As far down the depth chart as you can a veteran that's been in so many different rooms right you would you would think like one will be gone to the question comes at guys like. In a king can you buy what can the sabres get a third round pick and Tony seventeen is. Next to nothing ought to bring up a name to you that I you know. We've got a trusted group of people kind of like the nexus of the show trusted friends trusted to what are travelers at trusted tweeters Travis Yeltsin is on the list of trusted tweeters from. He's pretty good. TS and you know follows the sabres is up on it. Isn't one of these national guys as as the sabres failed because they got Michael because we were all focused on the David like some do. I think Travis just pretty put him he says his one of his number one targets in the trade deadline if I can get this guy is. Skinner. In Carolina. Concussion problems plot to scale but maybe that guys available. But what we don't get enough of what we're talking about the deadline. Is who can we can't look at the sabres go out and snagged from another team was available Matthew you're here on Monday I mentioned offensive defenseman from. And a they're playing Anaheim tonight shake Theodore might be a that's paid or Theodore. But offensive defenseman currently in their AHL team. You know if you're stuck behind the Anaheim defense you might be pretty go out and maybe. They decide you know what we need some more help maybe it's Jeanie we gimmick I wanna try to find a guy the sabres can get that I don't have to think about two years from now. This this this Webber trade if you draft someone in the third round of the when he seventeen a player is even going to Rochester until 2019. Minutes culprit. This this this Webber trade you won't see the fruits of that until 2001 he won if you ever see them well I was gonna ask. Both you guys because I know Matthew treated out on the WGR count. Just at the exact phraseology for our topic today basically every art what your expectations. For the sabres trade deadline so I expect to move as you have face. I'm not sure he's gonna move anybody under contract I'm expecting picks. Anybody expecting. Real human players guys that I think that should not touch your draft pick I mean they have twenty draft picks for a for that for the rentals or are you saying you would move guys undercut like. Either real hockey trade either you could get about you can get. In exchange for Dick about when you traded Tom and bill Larson and Hackett came back and Matt pilgrim and he's a top tier global player who's available. But can I get one person can I get a prospect gonna get some and it's fallen out of favor with your organization. That about even Hodgson for Cassie and deal that was a deadline deal or two teams said hey you know what let's flop these pieces. We work that mad at Cassie and they'd still hot and playing fairly considerable minutes and the deal was made so what kind of deals are available in fact. Like that's the area that's the range I'm looking. I think you need to look at other team's salary cap situations. And it's. Where the sabres might be wanting to take advantage in Anaheim is a great one. I don't look at Theodore though I look at Cam Fowler because Cam Fowler has not had a great year for Anaheim and they after resigning campus when home Sammy botany. Because the doors are good young player they could move out Cam Fowler and not. Skip a beat. On their run going toward the Stanley Cup and I think there are legitimate Stanley Cup contender but because he has not been that great for them as he has been in the past. He isn't favorable contract but they have like a self imposed salary cap. With their ownership so it's not just about their cap room it's about how much money there willing to spend. Lind home is like seven or eight million dollar defenseman and body in his one of the best offensive defenseman leak so they wanna keep bull. They would be spending seven array Amylin home another five on Bodden and then for more on foul up dollars cavities for I don't think they wanna spend that much. I think and I also think that they would be a team that what one Jamie McGinn to try and beef up a little bit more on their office. Wolf they think that they can call up. A player from San Diego and replace follower and not miss that much. The sabres could justify that because if Tim Murray is able say hey I got us a defenseman who's gonna play in our top four. And he's under contract for the next two years but you'd have you give up you consider that a success they wouldn't take. Rental McGinn for Fowler would that you're saying they would do that just to ease their laps legally flawed or maybe they'd say get up something big weekend and you would appear to teach rap I think you have to would have to give something else with McGinn that you're getting a guy under contract yet draft maybe would be the public are in maybe you maybe don't. Not necessarily taught you to get again for her for about Fowler. It depends depends how they feel about it I don't think it would be one for one yeah I would get to that the groups I think I've always thought of and it's for Pollard might be possible. Type deal but tennis is certain but it's her yeah I got a week for him to get healthy and team dispute convinced that he's gonna be okay same with fronts in week. We are the Cody Franzen was. Bus picking up interest in now he's out and he's a ways away so I think that probably puts you know kibosh on that this has been out. How long I mean this is for the season is stuff in you know you always worry about. Guys with concussions and the longer he's out you were even more about. I mean the if he'd like does is doing the bicycle and then he's having symptoms. He hasn't been out practicing skating right I don't think so I think he did skate skate a cut someone. I'm Jeff Skinner. His contract is. Big and long goes through 2019 of five point seven million huge but as I was pulling this up. Last night I was surprised to see where he ranked in terms of even strength scoring. He has a similar even strength scoring rate to John Tavares. And am gaining market and he's just for just goals he's 23. And I am thinking about. Jack cycle and what he needs to play with him a guy who can score goals. That might be a good fit I don't think that cycle it's that well with Evander Kane he's more of a fit with O Reilly. Michael needs a guy who can score and finish why is Skinner possibly available. Salary and injury. Salary and you three injury is a part of the you know what the left them but I I had a good year yeah I wanted to pull up his body he's that's why anyone goals already yeah I was thinking your ability to like your barely missed that he can't write three I have this impression like he can never play. More than fifty games this season because of concussions in 7177. Everything that this season so that's not bad I mean the last you gotta go back to. Heck when was the lockout was the was 201213. After that had to be right yeah that's right so he is eleven well maybe not because he played 64 games that he's played eight. 82 his first year sixty for the year to that would've missed eighteen games than 42 games that had to be the lockout year. That would've played almost the entire season. 717760. So he's missed fewer games than I thought I there was upper for me I always believed he had he had missed far more games than that. Because of a variety of injuries including a concussion so he's been. Durable and I thought just for a moment ready for Carolina's unrestricted free agents as a team that's here outside the selloff right community outside the cell. Eric stall the big name here the other US phase for Carolina. Chris Versteeg anything derby. Riley Nash. Chris Terry Brad Malone. John-Michael miles cam war to like all of that can't be a trade deadline without John-Michael Powell going somewhere Kris Versteeg is the best buy that that. He has criminally underrated player and is cap it is 2.2. Yes cruel point and he's scored as many points this year's Eric Staal and he was on the Blackhawks last year helping them when the cup those of the sabres straight Bremen try to sign him. Now and it's now a look at I am looking. Four players. We've had we had that run of 171 and second round picks that determined to players and now twenty draft picks in the last in the next two drives twenty. How many roster spots do you expect to have. I know you get a refill your farm system. But I think sabres fans are thinking about OK okay fine. Trade away me gain trade away like Juan trade whenever you want. But tell me what I'm getting and sabres fans have spent 345. Years just stockpiling draft picks and I'm not. Put that down that's a nice thing to do and I think they've done very well and we've seen what it can reap. That said it's time to get some players it's one of the reasons I've for the most part all season supported signing again because eventually I want to go get a guy like me again. Is expecting picks now and then he would get the players in the offseason that he was then you around July whatever not not just the trap but trades like. The you know the the Riley trade with dread a draft yeah exactly and that's the second trade that right because I've been thinking about jade and Schwartz at the trade deadline. I just don't see how Saint Louis is gonna fort. And less they're moving out one of their big money guys. Like. It was those that think a look at four. Acquiring players is our face who's got to pay a restricted free agent could any of them be available could. Brady and she can be available or Chris craters name has come. I would be interest in Chris Kreider. Want to back. When asked you about like I've still dwelling and Jeff Skinner definitely play well he's part of this sabres needs what's the bigger need right now and what you Tim Murray. Be looking at right now as his top need. A second defenseman and a number two defenseman. Behind Bristol line and someone of physics level or a Winger for Michael. Find one guy just. Scott or the league and finding guy the complain next to Jack Michael they have money my choice you've got a player for a yet well no what I how I know what I wanted to get. I know the type of play I know what I need this team needs 8030550. To join us ADV. 550 Q 550. And you can share your thoughts what are your expectations. From the sabres by the trade deadline. Picking up players just get picks move and out guys with contract term left just move in the US phase. 8030550. Join us 888550. Q 550. And we'll take your calls coming on the show two day. South hot chili is in Indianapolis covering the NFL combine he would join us this morning at 730 it is Wednesday so. Like Robert dye is in studio his one goal show will be at 8 o'clock this morning.

Lot of great what are your teammates have tried and a lot of great casual walker or still are and it's you know I wish the organization and and especially the guys in the locker room the very best going forward because you know hopefully they get a chance to some connection especially here in the future and I just wish the best for those guys and sympathy obviously excited excited to get the Washington maybe have a chance myself to do choose to do something. That's as Megan wants a lifetime. Now former sabres defenseman Mike Webber. Reacting to the news that he had been traded who's out at lunch with teammates after practice when he got the call. So if you wanna hear his full comments. Paul was on hand in California for that in his with the team on the trip we have Mike we're averaged reaction to the trade. In our on demand audio WGR 550 dot com and it's a good place to go. Never miss any guess special guests Murphy was doing it shows from Indy he had former bill strength coach rusty Jones on the show last night so you ever miss any special guest. Were hours of shows were complete shows check out on demand audio which is brought you by northwest make the switch northwest. And get back to living also on our website. Where Paul while the latest on the sabres latest on the Shawn McCoy and the meeting yesterday in Philadelphia the Mike Webber trade cells got oracle up four bills related questions to start the Columbine. Paul's got an article up at about the sabres dealing with a month without Ryan O'Reilly. So that's all there and web culture. The whipple's about RG straight because. Bruce Allen from the Washington GM has said they're going to release Robert Griffin the third. So should the bill signed him you can go to WGR 550 dot com yes she'd be a good backup for Tyrod Taylor and good fit in their scheme or no I think he shot. Do it all the injuries just not worth it. I've got the same Twitter poll one vote on Twitter instead. IA wanna get to that but I went the break I ask you question I said what what is what I want what's the number one priority for two summary we're we're talking trade deadline and what he should be looking to acquire. In order gets picks maybe he uses those picks in a deal to go get the next Cano world Riley dealer whatever they end up doing. Is it more important view to get a number two defenseman may be a top pair defenseman or. In the specifically the guy to play to the left for the right of Jack cycle which other that you wanted to speak Michael's point which is more important to you. Michael Winger. I'd like both I still think you have to pick I I still think you have to fix build up this defense group. But right now for me. Eight scoring and this team it's still struggling too hard through to score so I need more scoring now we're scoring on the wings from trading again. A movement fifteen to twenty goal guy from the wings off this roster. So I'd I I was thinking. In general I want scoring over defenseman right now and specifically if you wanna say find Michael's guy great I mean if you can narrow it down and find a match right cool fantastic but I. I won or scored on the I would make it specific about Michael because. With O'Reilly Ian Reinhart email I got out just fine yep you know Cain bounces around a little bit McCain would be gone I'd like to see it was a very small sample size but I'd like steal of the more came with Larsson I mean we're talking. Less than five fingers about a game sample size so I'm not gonna jump to conclusions but. Those guys seem to work together for a short amount of time. But yeah I cold. You know maybe it's dirty and since. I don't know I think there's something there. If they can stay together but I I that's why it is silly to me like finally got Frankel I just think. They still need more scoring on this team they still need more scoring off the wings because Wilson's not scoring. And this is out with an injury I don't know what his future holds mulls its future with this team it's very much and Mary much a buyout and he's he's not here next season right. Never. Now. But it could be a buyout could be waived the Rochester depending on what happens. You wanna increase scoring and I agree the wing is one thing. And I one way to increase to scoring at begat another mark as sick on the team the sabres could be better at moving the puck and getting it out of our own and you know with regard to. Was it which talked about not Molson numb again and it's known Olson's. And lost my train of thought ringers to all gone. Cain. It's gone one. You should sell its gotta be somebody on the roster and not an issue there really laws all became back trains back everybody I was gonna say on the wing. Matthew and as an add on. A great scale as you know you're covering the emirates an awful lot watching the Emerson senior prospects have been more than the rest of us. When it comes to the wing. Include Justin Bailey in this conversation give the sabres a letter grade for their depth of prospects at winged. That are ready to play in the NHL and loan crisis at some point that decision and years NHL wingers I'm not even say in excess and I'm saying like. The crop of wings that you've seen that look like they might be NHL players at some point I'm while job. The Bailey is a pretty much a lock to be an NHL player for a long time I think. Nick Baptiste music. Right now does not look like an NHL player. William Carey a may be like a fourth line NHL player and the same with Tim Schiller who I think to play in the fourth line. That's it for guys who are NHL ready Hudson bashing is probably gonna go to the AHL. I don't know anything about how he plays I mean I haven't seen him play at the pro level yet and I won't know until. I do but I know it's Emery high on. Something to watch on fashion make then and haven't signed yet. And they could do the rule we go. Sign him and have him play with the NHL team yeah I mean right after the deadline when when Minnesota season ends Hudson bashing becomes an NHL or for the end of that season and then asked are spot from there. I would still give it like it. Now your top forwards who are prospects are on the team on the team most teams nineteen and twenty year olds are playing in junior or in college. But in terms of pass this. There isn't pretty dry. Yet and I and I see Justin Bailey long term is a third line. Yeah I don't know about that I damaged enough bashing enough where he'd I've had to watch any Minnesota Golden Gophers hockey this season I apologize so I don't know he fits in is tops exported to report its bottom its export I don't know. And you know what it only daily and bashing. I don't think it would change my mind I would still like to add. More scoring on the wings and inappropriate but all as I said in a perfect world he's gonna have to do both they'll have to add more defense do. Who Lee is it's the only guy pretty much anybody else in the system now. Okay you're still talking about if McCain turns out to be a top four guy at best you're talking about. Was the line and ethnic McCabe. And grew. Yeah so he still has that board is defense course. And with fashioning no matter how much they talk a mop mean he has 33 point 19 gains from Minnesota these. He's also fourth round pick. I'm not expecting a top six forward. Many Japanese dad more yeah yeah it's true and I think there are a lot of opportunities to do it wins all the draft picks that the sabres have built up. That I'm looking through the RFA list in the salary cap this cap is not gonna go. And a lot of teams are gonna be pinned down in tough situations with some of these restricted free agents Saint Louis as I mentioned has a lot of big contracts are players with no trade clauses and things like that and they have James Schwartz coming up in their number other. Our phase that could be possibilities for the sabres or our phase that would force their teams to move out big Contra and you for. You we haven't mentioned one thing your talking are a phase or phase or not just trades. Sheets offer sheet. Buy stocks are up by stock up on when he picks in two years it makes it much easier to give up four picks because I signed again and offer sheet. In the offer sheet I mean people tend to think that. For any player you have to give up like connects for a first round picks and he's not sure there's a scale. For how much you're gonna pay the guy and it is a lot to offer sheets just don't happen because they've made the compensation. Seoul march. And last year I you know you talk about a stamp goes offer sheet which would be. Crazy out of this world but a guy that's in them that in the last year between three and five million was gonna cost to a first and author. So if you have a bunch of thirds and it's fine. At first it's gonna scare people off. But that's for three to five million if you're going after a match I'm sure you're thinking of higher end our FA seven million that's a first a second and a third. Now buy stock and do that pertained Schwartz a strain if I can I thought her like 33 and 41 round picks they know it's not. It's not any more than 11 until you get over seven point three million dollars. Soul instead of thinking about it from a standpoint of well. What I trade all these picks for change warts or whoever now on trading. Mike Webber four because Mike Webber got me a third. Sure Saint Louis can have my third I've Washington's there and the same destroy a second round pick him again gadgets suit I got to next another action of the stockpile second and thirds and all I'm really doing is trading my first next year. For this player and if you're gonna play guide seven million dollars or six point five or a a big contract like that. Trading a first for that guy. To me that sounds about right is what are you dread after hoping turns into a seven million dollar player the guy and yet the guy you're the RFI your signing is considered a very good hockey player Pollyanna kind of money so it's like getting a first round right out of a very good you're using that first and a first round cal Lutheran guy so I may be. Maybe an offer sheet music got a player that they think they get time to offer sheet and there are some cap teams that have big time aren't face. Meant Duma from Minnesota they don't have a lot of money only Mata. From Pittsburgh they're kind of up against it. There's some opportunity there. 8030515. To join us nick we did in solidify the deep then user that the picks over the next two years.

OK Toronto to receive truck yeah had a little six. Detroit Chicago Rangers sabres are playing someone now to us sabres would have made some sense you out and out would have. Vancouver. No. I played him in the cup fine. Eastern Conference Pittsburgh yes Pittsburgh OK I. No and that's not a rivalry. And apply it's been in on the key at the same times. Say played in the playoffs several times over the course so. All longtime big uniform color. Is it the same. Shore with okay it would not have been my first choice and a few may be lists the Bruins rivals. I would say Pittsburgh wouldn't be in the top five. But they beat the top ten. Close to ten maybe like eight I mean above the Florida I'd actually be next year the NHL should let fans schedule rivalry night games. And they control the schedule. Maybe they should I start they would be able to just work it out to have some actual rival they should ask our opinion on route every night but the truth is if you went just. The hard core rivalries you might have six potential matchups and that's it. Well you can't write it's got a beast but it it it can't be true deal just traditional rivalries right they got up with still and abusing the original six teams all the time all the time as they pop play against people that aren't actually arrive route kit then let's.
