Do. Script which week. Go vote and go learn how to play in the second period in two long shifts. The puck over playing defense tired defense take penalties particularly in the eyes of the mental mistakes and descriptive. We play and some kind of promote this respect from the I was playing that way in the second period. Demo but some of his comments after the sabres lost to the can access that the loss taking a backseat to. Well mostly what Robin letter said after the game last night but Dan about was then asked about. Robin letters comments about players. Well basically not follow what the coaches wanted to do and we will explore more about this with Dan Basra when he some of the senate tomorrow morning. Howard Jimmy Derek which you're 8030515. You can share your opinions of what you heard from Robin letter we think of his comments as it is that the players' fault is that the coach's fault what you can Marie do and all this Mets. Think something is building here you know yeah there's all conversations Angela momentum. If you well. Can't use that word trick and conversation. Can change at any given time it could really good okay. This is not what you do when you wanna build a winning culture no apparently not. Editor Phil pony we have monoline NFL point 937 the fan in Pittsburgh. Used to work here at WG RI text today and this morning because Enright got to admit I didn't remember how long you've been gone and in my head I'm like. I think he was there when Viles Mo was fired but. I'm not good with years so I didn't know if it was ten years ago or five years ago or two years ago when you when you went on the Pittsburgh. By the post game I watched your Pittsburgh was and now I. Ryan Miller came here with the sabres after the 2000 that'll affect low and the fans here gave him a standing ovation before the game and it still over the stay it was the coolest moments I've ever experienced at a hockey rent. And that is just. That works that's got a jacket soaked 2010 is out that is points and yes. And I so Dan miles would have been a coach at the time correct and then. Coached through for a couple seasons so you you would have seen Pittsburgh with files mightily when the Jack Adams award in 2011. In a year when Crosby Malkin were hurt a bunch and and they still won. So looking back at that files my and his time in Pittsburgh is I think this conversation about the sabres head coach a lot of times we're gonna get texts and tweets is say like Kate. You might remember this happened in Pittsburgh this happen in Pittsburgh so I figured it's good asked you what happened with piles meant Pittsburgh. I would. Starting with the lockout shortened season. In 2012. His teams under achieved in the playoffs for. Three straight seasons. That post lockout shortened season. In other wiped out of the Philadelphia in six games they fell behind in that series three games to none. And his team. Just lost control of itself they they were extremely disciplined they got sucked into the flyers style of play. And I thought that it would support reflection on him as a coach you'd reached before that series. Not to allow old guys like shot security and Scott Hartnell. To get the penguins dot edge indie did I mean bulk it was totally thrown off this game. Crosby was out played by Claude Giroux. And that that would lost that series in six the following year they made it to the Eastern Conference final and got swept by Boston. They didn't lead for a single second of that series so it wasn't just a loss they were just completely out played. It and it last year here they were up three games to one other Rangers. In the Eastern Conference semifinal. In balloon that series and lost in 770. He just. Kind of reached its. I think he just kind of reached the end of year where you know it in a we're business what I'd like cloud Juliet to stick around for a decade are the exception not the rule where it would be rough so the world almost never happen. He got to a point where he had coached more games than anybody that would history. And by the end this team wasn't getting. Where it wanted to go when that was the return trip to the Stanley Cup final. Whether any Kumble or players saying one of the things we're talking about today is the system. Rob Linehan post game comments talk among the players don't seem to wanna play the system or they don't play the system. The second period for whatever reason the entire year has been a problem for the sabres in the seems like. Going back to opening night it would it's been a constant conversation about his system. Well I think he'll never the issue became a proceed Eragon somebody else must point out that there was some can see. They you have a coach who believe it is without detail that he that they had met last year. Specifically. You know brought forward Kayla with Crosby bulk and at the time James Neal was here he was a forty goal scorer. They'll bottles were believed that he didn't have to really play the matchup gave it all you very rarely saw him take advantage of last change. He just put this slide down the ice and basically forced the other team to be reactionary. You know that Boston Eastern Conference final series. That they got swept in the if they've got a wanted to dump that place behind China that was one of the things that he got really blamed for the and then they're in the Stanley Cup final. The the up Blackhawks scored three goals in two minutes. To start that series and they're purely what the heck equipped with that process. The previous round. You know a lot of it's like kind of asking defenseman. Too deep pot got bad cook quickly it can make real. Parasites. You know walking distance passes out of their own zone and they were. Replied you have the best bit like bad luck Troy comes to abide to were like this stock palladium group precedents you might skills that I. I can't people at the position Willie asks me to basically deal like you know Paul Coffey. Or 82 died two years settle. I think by the end the violence but just had a reputation here for faking that he was smarter. That most everybody. That Hitler it was gonna work. And ultimately what it failed I don't think he was willing to make adjustments I think he kind of became bull headed it was what dead as stubborn coach. Okay that doesn't make me feel any better ballots happening up here entries Howard how you don't know Stockton. Area so ignore talk about the defense and I wanted to ask you about the forwards and philosophically. Like there in a letter last night it was making comments about sometime for too fancy some kinds. Guys are trying to Deke we're supposed to be a grinding team and and I hear that. I equate grinding with let's not Kerry and turn it over let's dump it and win some battles along the boards and Natalie the opportunities specifically since you mentioned defenseman in passing. What about the role of the forwards. Were were there guys that was a talented team they allowed to skate and play was there any kind of resistance in terms of where Ford's kind of freelancing and saying hey. I don't know if this is the right stop for me let me do a little bit more. Well I think that. You know it if if you get those Tiger Woods teams like nobody would have can use them waited. Like the Detroit teams that went to back to back Stanley Cup finals they work. Viking bear the cost would be an exception just because. He's such a highly motivated in and skilled two way player but. You know I would say that there was a commitment from their sports to play its 200 foot game like they were not the type the team. Famously went Michelle Caribbean got fired. More than midway through bottles in the Stanley Cup winning keys and he said it if I don't wanna like open the sticky here I want our rob these guys to play with a lot more freedom. I want our rob them the plate liberal. And we've kind of seen that happen with a tight with coaches guys square. You know beat these six sir I was really the antithesis up his predecessor to it was defense divided. By helping McCain made its goal scoring first that he got replaced by Mike Johnston who made them play defense they couldn't score goals. He got fired and was replaced by Mike Sullivan who's really loose in the raid on this team and others that pops scoring team in the NHL again so. I think adequate by all smoke up. I would look at him as ethic guided definitely puts the emphasis. While the offensive zone and not the defense decided things that I would not looked at them their biggest ten year here. As a team that you know out there are definitely a step maybe do the little things in our own zone. Putted his relationship with the star players the ball over time with with Crosby with Malkin. Yeah that's a good question yeah. By the end of this. But it was diaries you know at that probably felt like they had let the hand down with the way that they had put forward in the playoffs. But I'd make it the same time everybody was ready for a change. You know I'd think I'd spend little real clear understanding here. Dad you know that this organization was ready for the next chapter. So that's my way of saying I wouldn't I wouldn't say they keep butted heads with market across the I wouldn't say that those two guys. Like and it disrespecting him were thinking less of him at the end. I I think what with what data the coach that I don't believe. Changes his message so much that I don't look at him with a guy that looks at the team that he has been thinks well. You know all I've I've got to change our style of play here I've got I've got to change. My philosophy. And I think by the end of things that it it was kind of like a tired old song itself. I don't think that there was like animosity between Crosby and market our products but I do you think that they were ready to go their separate ways. All right. Andrew appreciate the insight I guess said it's. I'm not I'm not sure the messenger is saying you didn't make my mood any better for him. I know I always talk oh we don't think so there's there can we. I don't even I think it might even be a stretch to say mini insurrection I think that would be an improper way to phrase it fierce it is sound like discontent that sound like the entire year that the players either don't understand or don't want to play. This system he has some place. Whether that's the stretch pass or in like what I get a lot of Andrews people saying like he had Sidney Crosby dumping and chasing in his time there and I don't know how much she did that. But the stretch passes something that you mentioned you know asking Ben Lovejoy to be Paul Coffey remember and it's something that here offensively date. They get controlled the five on five they don't have a lot of chances at five on five they are buoyed by the number one having the number one power play and at five on five outside of Evander Kane. They'll literally scores. Yeah. Well I think in today's NH yes I would so much emphasis placed I'd be able to possess the blocked. Indelicate the other team can't score without the puck which is a pretty rudimentary concepts some people might have a hard time understanding. You know to ask you are keen to make low percentage place to talk is really not a smaller. Way of looking yet it's today's NHL and I can just say from my time covering the prime went. I've felt like to walk in the key leftist defenseman to make those kind of place. And if you're asking Chris we're saying to deal that's one thing but as I previously stated when he got marked eaten in that were actually in Chile and in those types of players. Making those kinds of passes. It's a totally different things so I was trying to figure out here and I'm Christie and Bob let's see approach what is at one last thing for you guys. The other one did you get a strong open. A request then become that he won with a lot. I mean he's got one more quick test you would ever came Grady this pops fixed. And they had over under points that season important was pretty much out for most of the year in my pocket pulled up his needs wood about thirty plus games. To go I'd get that even more than it scaled a couple of decent is probably his finest hour. As a kite would complicate even the contradiction a quite said the the did did the opposite that piece and was that he didn't have the skills to players in yet he got swept the players to buy into. The way that they played so. Maybe that's the overriding power that the well that he's been it would put guys we want to look at it delete NHL player. That make you wonder if he's a coach that suited to deal with the league players or b.'s better serve like people would say this of John tore zarrella. That turtle rally gets a gets other players to buy in and when it comes to an elite player he might not be the best coach for that guy. It can't duplicate its suppliers he wasn't like that for a little while Mike acting white meat and potatoes kind of guy. It and he. I don't quit he'd get too many times here. What he had teacher's pet type players that I think probably reminded him of himself like Kyle Adams was the guy that like. I don't accept Taiwan's record for consecutive games played it. And like this what do you feel was apoplectic cal Ripken thing work like this time. No business being in the line up but it's almost like but I'll watch to keep playing him. Because he's got the streak going. It's because these problems up and Adams caught one Goldberg could kill penalties. Would stack upon his body. I did that upset about what has been in my pocket I think that there have been up to the small resentment. That there were some guy to applying specifically in the bottom six. They don't well there are guys opened the pot spot fox hole. At the American League level who skated better than that and have more skill and yet but helpless keeping those guys out. Because he's got a couple of days apart but he likes to play specifically guys to remind the problems. I think you know it's funny I was going to tell you enjoy that. Ev everything you've said. I think would you describe about the defenseman can absolutely apply here there are guys. With the stretch pass and what ES is defenseman to do like your mention the guys to Patrick. There are most of this defense scores probably not suited for that kind of game plan so I think that analogy is correct. But what you just mentioned the forwards they're definitely a couple of guys we've we've been talking about the speed of Justin Bailey and I don't know it's about what thing I don't know what to demo everything he might in any might be saying let's let the guys stay in garage but there are definitely some. A couple of forwards who have played over a couple of other guys that I think a lot of fans like to get more ice time here and those forward Mikki Moore baked. Grinding work ethic type thing. But I felt. Guys that need one last thing I like Dan I mean I think. I think he's put an update on I don't think he's a guy that just with the cartels. Are quite has been in my pocket and do like big that he is what get a chill Quenneville clubhouse are up there with the best coaches in the NHL no I don't. But about it but I would like to see him especially with the cycle and Julian some of the things that have gone on this year. I hope that if the coolest don't make you know Rex Ryan like movement fiery guy after just a couple of seasons. Army conversation today is that if it comes down to a power struggle we know he loses mean he would if he loses to the core of this team because the core of this team is young in the and it's not on anymore. Some of trying to injure thank you gotta thank dander Phillip on united 93 point seven the fan in Pittsburgh. If there's definitely there definitely a couple of guys I mean you know we've we've talked about. I mean Derek rant and some of the Sadat the signal Soledad I I don't holidays there come for singling you out there are. There are bottom six guys that are here and you look at and go. What. And that are acting as her own speed on those lines right and educate us about the kind of player Boswell was and he has these and he may be lucky prayer. You know the heart and soul guys in the grinder in the work ethic in the you know do the dirty work and all whereas I will look at it as bad it got to me speak. Gimme more speed out there want or to comply FBI it's one of the reasons why I think he is safe. Because I think it means that they're being patient with those guys but we'll see like him the next year there playing somebody that saw favor as Ender putter to teacher's pet over like a elite. You know that'll be harder to hide I think Bailey's development hat is is in part because he's been stashed down there. Follow up I mentioned toward Perella. C would have within over the weekend there now. It's funny how this wall has money out all goes you know. Tiger changed his stripes you hear a reports he's got the Blue Jackets the boy blocked shots apply in blocked shots and like. It's a new torts I'll catch you saying yeah okay so yeah yesterday these. Yet okay. Only got teased it and I also want to I'll wait and excitement if not I got to grow I've got that if you want. I have to tell people I want to read the exact quote from Gustav and Ike was. His explanation for the high stick okay or its version I you are going to I mean you wanna talk about a guy whose nose is gonna grow a thousand miles when he says something. I can't believe he even sincerely said slogan we'll get that and the story that you knew was coming about John coral. We haven't done anything this week feels woman you know full respect and he he's done something that's the rest of us. And the story. We get a stop thinking after we were in the game where we are Chicago or Boston or weird we think we are I don't know but this this time. It's time to realize that we're grinding we're grinding hockey team that. And I've got a folder structure start listening to our coaches are respecting. Respecting this team and respect for our coach. But I Robin lenders cut its of his comments last night and I so I should mention this earlier my bad if you warning here. Everything from the post game last night after every Saber game Robin letters all of this post game comments. Tyler Ennis Kyle post so damn Viles Mo Paul Hamilton thoughts we have complete the post game show itself in its entirety. Everything is always available after a sabres game and on demand audio at WGR 550 dot com and you have to Morella. And I have good stuff night mystery so awed tore rile up this came down yesterday. That's you know there's a new and John zarrella. The story about his career is that he he wears himself out the players lose the masses they really get tired of him. While. Apparently the Blue Jackets are tired of them hoop. It's fast they won sixteen in a row and then since then they've been 881 sports that reports that the players called a players they call the meeting with Correll a closed door meeting with all the players in rural where they all they asked him. I was Elliot Friedman saying quote. I think there's just some requests and publicly and privately that asked him to be a little easier. Nick get real that feeling amongst the players may be some of that old style of -- relative crept in on the bench we were told that there was a closed door meeting amongst the players and Perella. Usually the coach giving it the players in this instance I think they were looking for Perella to go back and find a few more positive things. To find the last few games now if I may. Meant just the hot take here and I know that when you hear players saying hey man back off or pay. Come out positive reinforcement is a negative reinforcement. I don't while text box here only if it's gonna light up and I imagine it's gonna light up with these players I thought land deals these losers. It's fine you can think that and you know it doesn't mean you're wrong piano which you do have to live in reality if that's what the players are asking for a that's what's gonna work for them. You have to do what works for them if you are a coach of a football team and you know is always a dog Maroney ankle. You might think you're the smartest guy in the room and you can tell everybody what to do we can't hear you can't control of all the way you have to let the men be men you have to. Work all the personalities. So he might hate colonials. But if they are your employees have thirty or players you gotta. Find a way I that's all that I don't think there's a purse I think people first off believe fans believe you know that. That is different than athlete. But you're just play me a clip of to order a lot from water first and emissions which was 24/7 when they played the Rangers flyers the 24/7 and he was. Like ballistic in the locker room they must that debate raiders had a bad for security wasn't happy. Now the the problem is like he was actually being complementary to his team. Like I know you can play better I know what kind of game you play know we can do this and argued that but he is just like law and niece. I guess. What I'm getting through it I think you do have to pick your spots I think. It's funny to Motorola doesn't normally where art has welcomed this fast although he was fired in Vancouver after one year he was with Tampa for a long time. He was what the Rangers for 1234 front like five years it usually takes them a little longer before tea the players were aware of his act. Any no matter who you are fans believe that it comes with that would athletics that your job includes your coach is gonna yell at you. And that's just the way it is new deal but I'll be honest and I think at some point if all guide does is yell if you're constantly berated at practice and games. Intermission. It I think you just inevitably to in the guy out. Not want to be yelled at all the time I'm sure sec wouldn't want it and I don't think they would either I think that's the problem is. And the Trotter relic clipped the meet was perfect he is that. Like plus 3000 passable level army is a psyche is louder than a plane engine okay. The message she's setting. Is actually a positive message. But he's yelling sold loudly I think as a player you'd like my meter starts again my guess is you'd be used to that over the course of playing ten years in Europe and also finals at some point. I don't think your message can get through if you keep yelling at guys like that and and this is a winning hockey team are well. Yeah Columbus is a winning hockey DREAM Act I think at some point you'd you pick your spot you can't just. Mount Vesuvius all the time and it. You know I get it. When it comes to hockey hockey does not like to make. Some players bigger than the others in fact those players don't like to if you are a superstar you're supposed to act like you're not. Usual to put in the same work you know like nobody gets special treatment and a reality. The number one job of the coaches of the code to the Buffalo Sabres for the next few years is going to be give to get the most out up and make Jack cycled happy is to can be and keep me here for. 1215. Years when it's on and he gets a ton of points. He's your star he's what you're building around any GM or coach that took a job here would know all right one start with Michael and risk the line and an O'Reilly. If the three of them don't like me that's a meat problem you know that's not their problem that's my problem I've got to get them. To bind to me no matter of I'm Dan Viles mark or Claude Julian whoever it is the job is. Sure I know how to coach yes I've won a Stanley Cup but I'm trying to win another one and to get there. The the core of the team. Needs to believe it mean if I don't know Robin Lehner is specifically talking about not you know not doing the work not accepting the they're grinding team. But if my team after two years doesn't except but I am a grinding team that maybe I gotta stop telling America grinding team. I've got to on the something else it's funny I was I was going to point out that I think in most cases it in sports history. If it gets to a point that there is a clash of wills in a lock remark club house coach whose every time coach looses. And because unless it's fenced if you are a superstar coach wins it and Bill Belichick action that. This is drivers and everybody loses its upper Tom Brady right this that's exactly that's funny that's why I was gonna say. Most times a coach will lose and in most times it'll be. You'd eaten the rare exception might be the coach has so many championships that they're gonna look at what this guy knows what he's doing that. Rarely have it's okay that would check might be the egg is the exception to the rule and they love to say they would trade Brady which is the biggest line sports. If they clashed after their third Super Bowl who leads IU beat personally I would keep the quarterback but it might be different in knowing when they might. In all they might believe in him so much against Brady is. They'll move guys though moves seem what they'll move Collins though moved Chandler Jones they'll get rid of Randy Moss though. The move anybody off the roster because they believe Bill Belichick can make any roster went that's the exception. Most teams. Will take the players over the coach over the manager they would keep their players and say it will find someone else around the clubhouse or run block. Well I mean you know look interim number of different stories from miles this time in Pittsburgh and one of the stories in their talked about how. There's a general field locker room that it wasn't fun to go to work anymore again another thing that you people say like off. The snowflake hit Milan deals but he should go to work. Maybe after work environments fund you work better and it's a reality if everybody in the room hates Doug Maroney when he quits they all cheer like good. We clicked right he was part of our problem now bills have gotten better release since then but they've got other problems. If you are the coach and the players think that. Work is work and work is not fun thank you work hard work is fun you work better when work is fun it's not always gonna be fun but. You know how how how old Holler my young stars doing house Jack to how Sam doing house arrest missed doing well. See I guess that for me the ankle conversation. I'm really curious to know. Again he did nets' ball publisher of I'm really cares now. Is cycle part of the problem. If there is this issue internally. Where it. Players not doing what they're supposed to do a game plan is laid out. Like Paul's talking about game plans like the Toronto game right now is just the latest example. Where will watch is sabres play it'll take a lead in the third period and then in like in Toronto the other night they were just swarmed under. They're they're spending most of appeared in their own end. And you're crossing your fingers and praying for the goaltender in that instance Robin Lehner to you know handle the siege there and walk out of there with a win. And Paul's point was do you think the coaches I think a lot of fans would say let's file. He must it's all those guys we got a two goal lead sit back protected just chip the puck out the year and don't even think about scoring anymore just play defense. And also out of you guys think of the coaches went to the players and said sit back for twenty minutes and let Ronald come matching your knots. So I guess might my question would be. Who were the problems. And is one of the problems I go I mean is like being told. Don't carry the puck as much don't try and stick handle out of your own and it at the end of a penalty kill maybe is he taking too long shift you know. And it and if that's the case. Good to America because Michael's not going anywhere you're gonna have to decide which are superstar player but to me that's that they detecting here who who want the guys that are doing this. And is it possible I was one of the offenders in this discussion because he's he's that he's doing all this on his. All if he's an offender in the the coach has lost him then the coach has two choices fix that for you leave your probably gone or be gone yeah. That's why when you said Howard the young guys doing. I was thinking that is cycle part of our problem I thought his summing Elsa and as a point for Viles my you know I had a tweet from. A listeners came in from was it sorry wanna find who was on leader's name. A demise to I still think vials mutt is safe. Came in from salt still think Viles was safe at the last night's debacle. Yes. Very much and part of that is if you are a GM of a young team. I'd bet somewhere in there is the thought. Why don't want them to learn early on that they can get a guy if a parent right you might like nobody in this corner of. Process yes. I think I think it's on to say that there's a two pronged process one. Typically speaking as a GM you wouldn't want your players to believe any time they're not happy with the coach they can get him fired. And part two would be sure the young guys. A year and more more than half in the bowels miss ten you could you could you know just not you could just. Have a mutiny it's like Mutiny on the Bounty basically. You know you don't like what the captain of the ship is telling you. Well is gonna make up your own rules. And at some point at the mutiny works the league you know the captain walks the plank in you got a new captain so I I I understand I think that would be eight. A precedent that Tim Murray would not wanna set. With a young players spoke with the locker room in general that just when the times get tough he can't just walk in in my office. Complain and demand that we get a new coach. What's to say you won't you won't have a problem with the next coach are bringing I think that that's why. I think Tim Murray's got his work cut out for him and I'm not sure how he plays this one but I think he is is gonna get to a point Paul said earlier and I agree. It's not if last night didn't bring it to ahead. Is gonna get too ahead at some point in Jimmer has to figure out of my back in my head coach or my players right now outside with them and I'm getting new coach. I don't know what happens. I'm not sure that he'll make it through the rest of the season if this thing gets its worst and that's. Bite at your Gustav and Ike was real quick that we'll get to extend so I Quist. You and fire are long time hockey fans we've seen plenty of bad things I've been telling you for years I would suspend guys. Big yes I'd give forty games for now what I had because I wanna protect players and if you really wanna protect players. You need suspensions and make the rest of the league's say why don't write my whole my first thought was. Honestly how long suspension my thought was how many games left and right wing's season. Thirty. Not 225. He doesn't play another game the rest of the season I I'd. Didn't realize what happened a month Twitter last night among my phone I'm looking at it and they the united there's this tweet about this high stick. So upset that this is after dinner sitting at the kitchen table I watch it and I'd just ice I yelled out old. Something I can't yell it out here. And my wife is in the kitchen and she's she she was like what what yeah it's like to some of dieting what happened like. Now as it's a high stick from a hockey game but I mean. It it was the reaction like I mean we've seen high stakes are pushing guys checked from behind reaching dangerous place so was not keeping you might not necessarily be affected by this like. This was like that the only things I did think it was like. Richard zednik has his throat cut like your reaction to a certain place right or are Bertuzzi and Stephen Moore. Cannot believe that it's the best part is I say destined finger quotes meaning it's actually not that that's ridiculous. Gustav and Ike was after the game says these high stick was accidental. I didn't mean to do that. My stick gets caught I'm trying to get body position on him I'm happy he was out there again I had no intent of doing that ice gets caught. Now this story I'm looking at is from dead spin. Right above that quote. Is a continuous loop of the high stick. He's checked from behind it goes down on all fours he gets up his stick isn't caught like he's portraying it like it was caught in the side boards and I had a and what my strength rip the stick out and it all through it it clipped him in the thanks now he got up on from the ice. He picked his stick up his stick is that waist high. He turns looks it's urgent. And shelled the stick in his face it didn't get caught it was an intentional high stick for guy who lost his cool at the moment. And went into the face of the opposing players there's no accident and what the NHL should do and would do. I would assume will be two different things guess what. Not Quist has no discipline history. And sturgeon stayed in the game. Those two things by the NHL's. Standard. I think will equate to say. Five game suspension. I was gonna say ten tops but I think that beginning in itself too much credit. I would say he gets a 556. Game suspension because he's got a clean record spurs who wasn't hurt and spurt and continued to play in the game but if you look at that.
