Welcome back to another SportsCastr.
And today we are going to begin the power skate shell.
I'm grand flit along with another host here on the show. Alex.
So? So you could say hi to your stream.
I was going on one.
I'm outs! Tussle! Um, I know you, butcher, but my last name but that's all right.
Uh, welcome to D M v SportsNet Patents itch.
And, um, we're looking for for more life streams slash broadcasting and podcasts, whatever you can do, Um, I put some great, very topics that we're gonna talk about and yeah, let's get this underway.
So our first So the first topic is to intro top 20 unrestricted free agents.
Um all right, so I moved on to You are my next screen.
So first is out Pietrangelo.
His last contract was $6.
5 million per season.
I'm not into cat friendly, cause I don't wanna waste time.
Um, do you think that Pietrangelo will resign with ST Louis? Uh, yes, I Yeah, I I actually do.
I think it's mainly because, you know, he's their cat and he's been their leader for so long at this point and you know, if implant just be strangers.
See, picture Angela Nana blues uniforms.
So Ah, you know, it would be very interesting if he didn't leave in free agency.
But like I said, I think the look, I think the Blue star gonna lock him up.
Probably long term much.
I probably a 34 year deal worth about maybe 40 million or so.
We'll probably do the trick in, you know, because that he's only got really three or four years left in the tank, probably before he really starts.
It declined ends in the like, the Dunkin Keith stage of defenseman self.
Yeah, I would say my Alex Special Range Low would read so in ST Louis And no definitely mess up if they state loose and you have bothered like trying to re sign him anyway.
But you think Alex, um, I'm blue on on board.
Um, but in the complaint mode by Marcos Candela, Mon Marco Skin del.
It is quite like a like That's, um, complementary defenseman.
Um, a guy dad, they give him, like, burn.
Minutes with as a bunker.
What? Uh, I'm also hyped up with Sami Blais.
Blais has has worked out with includes uniform.
Um, if they did not sense Candela off, they might trade.
Um, some, some some good assets.
Um, just you fill out the the contract.
Like the trans low cause the trance low in his Lear under his leadership, Yes.
Won the Stanley Cup before isn't main multiple all stars supporting by his fans in and that it announed liking that out.
I think it's gonna be a tough decision because I'm not sure it's gonna be a huge talk by this.
Yeah, it should.
It should be interesting, to say the least.
Like I said, I think preferential will stay in sync.
But I also think that's why they folk to, you know, maybe craft, you know, like how them is like the first pairing defenseman.
And then I see what the blues go from there.
But I think that should be interesting.
Like I said, though, and Alex agrees me.
We think changeable will stay in ST Louis, which I mean would would make sense.
Me boy Jim Jordan banked in private.
He heard in the air.
Second player Taylor Hall from the Arizona Coyotes.
See the left wing at 28 years of age.
This last contract was $6 million per year.
Do you think? Do you mind re sign with Arizona? You see, I thought perform well with the coyote so far.
I knew everyone knew he really didn't care much about the Devils.
And, you know, I think it was just a fresh of breath air for Taylor all once he got trade. Arizona.
I mean, Verizon trade away a good bit of prospects to get all but yeah, I thought for the most part, it was a smart trade, and honestly, I mean, I would I would imagine why the coyotes, they should be able to re sign Taylor golf because, I mean, I know everyone saying, I'll tell Holly might go to the Bruins.
You might go to electing, maybe even like fliers, But honestly, I mean, the coyotes there just like a great player away from potentially ah, playoff spot.
And, you know, they got to keep Taylor Hall if you know, they were going to come close to that.
So yeah, I would imagine Tanner Hall will be staying with Arizona, But what do you think I'm gonna say? A surprise for as one was watching.
He will not sign with Arizona by by the situation with Dorothy Kemper turned it turned everything around before.
Okay, Number was, like, out.
Offered three months.
Uh, he was close to be a Vesna level goaltender.
Um, And when When Kemper was that they had, like, eight and eight.
And Hill and the other other goaltender.
Um, if some of them are, like for, like, h l level goaltenders.
And that's why that is like affecting Arizona.
Um, but if they want to get Temer halt, like, one chance, I would say, like, give him, like, a two years with v a bridge deal just to see, like, yeah, it just went, went disaster.
It is not about you about the trade.
It's about Let way lost our goaltender.
So it's a 50 50 shot.
But, um uh, for for now, terror hall will not sign.
Yeah, Hall is definitely a flip of a coin. Worry.
She terrible signing, though.
Um, I'm thinking, like, um what I think in Anaheim because Anna needs progress.
Um, not not to waste his career.
Buffalo needs Buffalo needs a player.
See, the least they do not want to go for a decade with no playoffs.
Um, it will definitely lose fans when that happens.
Yeah, and another one.
Um, I'm thinking Florida because Florida had off guard season when they went through a good contract birth when they said Antioch Stroman, Sergei Bobrovsky and Brett Conley.
In knowledge story.
Um, I think once you have hall supporting a char e Straumann in the back and back and sorry and Brett Conley, you might go for a wild card spot.
Like cause you're not going anywhere you make.
Yeah, like you're not going anywhere.
Uh, so number you were gets my point.
We have Taylor Hall.
You put him on a line with bark off dad and off. Woof.
I'd be scary right here.
Here is the one day I want you to answer first. Okay.
The defenseman Tory grilled his last contract was five point $25 million per year.
Will he resign with Boston? You know why I'm going to say yes here.
I think it's mainly just behind the front of runs will need him.
And here's the problem.
Why? They still have another year of, um, you know, they sell have to, you know, have another year before they have to pay McEvoy.
And, you know, I think destroyed could be such a huge loss for the Bruins.
And I know for half Shara might retire, which may, free of some cap space yourself black.
Another one who might retire to free up a little bit of cap space like the Bruins ultimately especially, were trading away David back.
It's at the deadline.
I think that mainly opens up.
And, you know, that was the first thing that came to mind when, um when the Bruins straight backs and like, Oh, this has to make This has to be for, you know, the Scient or Ecru to along your deal.
I'm thinking I wouldn't pay crew more like four years that about maybe 35 mil lights day.
It would probably where Active crew, 35 Before you know, somewhere around there for, like, no more than four years bullet.
Yeah, I do think Torey Krug will say in Boston.
But like I said, I think they they might have to get rid of somebody else.
Like perhaps they would have to trade away.
I don't know. Maybe.
Maybe they have to be like a treated like get rid of all.
I think maybe like us sublicense from, like, another good prospect.
And, um, some other players who are some pretty big cap it's but yeah.
Were you guys or what? You think so you guys can do everyone in chat? Um, I will say he will respond because it charged out your Gaff crew and MacAvoy um, some player third from Providence.
That crosser I'm not makes their own cars.
Carson Kuhlman, Matt Grizzly Yacoub's obor ALS.
Maybe the girl, uh, and own was is a Jeremy laws on loan.
When? When you have them.
Well, not not only your dad, Like a shutdown d d level with the bomb pair you might have, but in the top three in the Atlantic, Like when you start retires, you will see birds run.
Where to See, um, Mark.
Martian will will keep the a is gonna be between Krejci or or crude.
Um, I would say crew may be the next co alternate captain of three days on the swear and version B.
Uh, it is gonna be a definitely re sign.
Yeah, well, you know what else forgets tell? You can't.
Maybe you guys like Makary Slick might be out the door as well if they really want to re sign crew.
So that's also interesting.
Hopefully, Alex didn't freeze up here.
Course, first episode.
So your experience a little bit of, um from the floor? A parent.
There's my no All right.
Like, yeah, I know Isaac.
He use a collection out a little bit.
Yeah, this is a Blaga said First time left ways and from the floor of panthers.
His last contract was fight What? Why? 100? A 7500.
Oh, no. What the heck? Oh, I did.
I know. What's up with Alex is Internet connection.
That's that's not good.
I'm gonna have to tell me, uh, tune back in here.
So you gonna say you get back on? You know, like I said, guys, first episode role new to this.
Don't know why he's glitch ing out so much.
And apparently it looks like to me, it looks like I'm fine.
So I am not sure what is up with that.
Who are you? Six years ago.
Rob, I say no longer stream.
So, yeah, I don't know what's, uh, going on here so that we might have to reboot here.
And then I guess we will, uh, take it from there.
So, um, actually, wait May Here.
I might be able to do something here.
Like I said, I'm also, uh, all new to this, but, um, in the means time, I could talk about something else is we tried a hook.
Alex, back up here.
And, um yeah, but I appreciate you talking about Mike Hoffman.
I actually see my Kaufman not staying with the Panthers, but, um, yeah, I could see him going to a team.
Like maybe callegary, but, um, yes.
You never know what is going to happen as a naloxone.
OK, so you gotta go Get on again.
Then I says, tries a link.
Alright, It's time to try the link again.
If yourself in trouble, Maybe I'll resend it, but, um, I areas is back on.
What the heck? This is not going well.
I don't descend again.
Okay. Thanks, Alex.
Um I think for telling me that.
All right, Alex, you can hear me, right? Yeah.
You went off again.
I'm going to go. Uh oh. Okay.
Let me go. Send him here.
We'll re send him the link.
And then, um hopefully we can take it from there.
I don't know why Alex has been so glitchy.
Everyone's, but, um we will, ah, resend the link, and hopefully we go on a lot.
Says he are Isaac.
I mean, yeah, OK, Computer, call it alright.
As is calling May.
So he's He's way better at this than I am, so I'll take his advice.
Says he's going back now.
But you like assuming.
Thanks for love.
We're back something.
I stick it in me to hang up on you, but we are back. Thank goodness.
This is all right.
Um, I apologize.
Everyone who's who's on the stream.
Ah, some difficulties.
But let's get right into it again.
As I was saying, um all right, we're good.
Yes, I can you find so blurry.
At least we can hear.
Yes, So that's good.
Lets redo, uh, left wing for the floor pants.
My Kaufman, Um, his His last contract was five points.
Uh, 5 million $5.
187 million per year.
Will he resign with Florida? Yeah, like I actually seven.
When unfortunately had an issue, Actually, don't think he will resign with the Panthers.
I think mainly because, like you said, Taylor Hall goes, and I definitely think my Coppins out the door.
I could see my Kaufman jelling with perhaps Columbus.
Maybe we just have Hoffman and, you know, whole basically switched places.
I'm thinking maybe aren't you? Might be ST Louis if Alexander steam retires.
Man, there's a lot of ah, a lot of teams I could definitely see.
Uh, Mike Hoffman going, but, um yeah, right now I have a price.
Is best bet would either be Arizona, maybe Boston as well.
But you know where you think my Kaufman's gonna go.
Or will he stay in Florida about Think they But if Thornton retires, But that that's not gonna happen.
Um, I would think Pittsburgh, because tomorrow, if Mardell can't do anything but his, um, his ability.
And I think you're you're looking for my Kaufman.
Um, Detroit can be in another option.
Um, l a can be one.
Well, well, he is already past his prime, but, um, but if Dustin Brown retires or Trevor Lewis, then you might look for Hoffman coming in? Um, yeah, they're just stunt comes up tons of options, and I agree with you, but Arizona or, um, Columbus.
Um, if I would think I would say collar rile because move.
Because I I'm on board with Colorado, like the 1920 season for now last year.
Because how they're starting to be electric there.
Almost a central, like like a top Western Conference team.
And, um, and another one right wing Tyler toe fully from the Vancouver Canucks.
Well, he re signed with Vancouver.
Yeah, I mean, things up plant, getting them back.
But, uh, you know, I could see touch of fully sane on Vancouver.
Mainly because, um, Brock wrestlers kind of injury prone.
And honestly, I snowboard or bodies, but yeah, Bihar vet.
I mean, he has just been dishing the puck into fully a lot since they have a lot of sense to fully has gone over to Vancouver.
So, um, I don't assume time to fully would resign.
What? The Canucks.
I mean, we we haven't seen the whole lie out of him yet, Really? In the country and for me s as flashes.
But like I said that I think, in fact, it was smart.
They probably signed to, like, a 34 year deal.
And, yeah, that should, uh that's what I think you have.
And why you think, Alex, this is a no brainer.
He's gonna resign with Vancouver. Yeah.
Vancouver is starting to be a Stanley Cup level team where they're both or fa twin use Brock Besser.
Um, and not really, but about why not? Um, as by sake, Tim.
Oh, we're on God at, um, Who is another player from Vancouver? Jacob Markstrom Letting yards with allies.
A wise person once forgetting Campbell, I'm Yeah.
Um, and and also Tyler Madden the prospect.
If our man comes in, then you're done.
You're looking for a top three Pacific level Pacific Division team.
Is this, um, speaking of Vancouver, Jacob Markstrom.
6 million per year with the Vancouver Canucks fully re signed with Vancouver? Yes.
Or now I can see Vancouver maybe wanting to release in my new think Vancouver will try to go after a better backup in free agency.
So that's why I do think they are going to stick with Mark Dramatic commanded because he made the All Star game and here was his Aussie playing lights out before his injury.
So I mean it, Xavi.
I don't really know.
Sky interesting causes me and like his mid toe late thirties Zakaria, you might actually like you started years old.
30 well, it'll be young that I was expected but current gang in that decline stage as a goaltender.
So I could see maybe make you forget I'm like a two year deal at most.
But if I was Vancouver, I might re sign Mark Trumpism maybe has deserved a pay raise, but I would be very cautious and I would definitely pick up Ah, back up in free agency.
That is for sure.
Yeah, I'm gonna go with the last one unrestricted because I want to go more or topics brand will be yes, goaltender from the Washington Capitals with $6.
1 million per year.
Isn't it obvious? But we re signed with Washington.
Cabral's might want to re sign him, but he has had such a down year.
His his save percentage is literally in the 18 hundreds.
Alot of ****e career by like 20 is ridiculous.
I the camera was Let me that might want to keep hoping for, like, loyalty and all that good stuff.
But they were smart.
They just roll with the earliest saves and often get rid of Hopi.
I could easily see brain help me going to Buffalo.
Maybe, um maybe Anaheim.
You know, John Gibson needs a good backup, actually, that you put the ducks back of a map, Maybe the Kings.
You know, Jonathan, quick struggles.
I can maybe see another team, perhaps the sharks if they're thinking about getting rid of Martin Jones.
I mean, a lot of places were like, Wow, it's like Brando peas.
He's that big fish will taste.
Basically, you know, he's the best going on the market right now.
And, you know, I would imagine, you know, some desperate team.
Maybe Detroit, like New Jersey.
A desperate team is gonna want us throw a lot of money and hope, because they will be fooled by that Stanley Cup.
Let me tell you that much, but yeah, I don't know.
I wouldn't imagine hope He re signed with gavels like Price.
See him? Actually, I think you could go to the Devils.
May be sticking to the Capitals a little bit.
I signed to a division rival, unfortunately, but well, you think, Alex, I know you're gonna have fun with this one.
He's not gonna cut.
He's not gonna come to Washington.
There's no way I would rather be kicking in the dig dunk by buffalo.
What you re signed with Washington.
Um, I apologize, but I know why he's not coming to Washington.
I'm glad that came up with this topic.
Um, I don't know whether the cop list Don't worry about that.
Um I'm thinking he's He will go to Buffalo because last all marked deep support.
Anderson needs support.
Uh, I'm thinking colorado because I don't see hoping and group our reunite.
Um, what would be pretty cool? Well, with Pablo friend Cruz, he's okay.
But like he's not, like inside within the NHL.
Um, that day, train friend cruise like, like anywhere like Anaheim.
Allah Detroit, Then then then you're in.
Um, yeah, that would make sense.
Frank Uzis really shocked me this year.
I mean, NBC, it shows a lot of avalanche names.
I'm usually Compton quite a bit.
He has shocked me a lot on him until our easy becoming one of the best goalie was in the league.
Yeah, they're very exciting to watch, and I've been shocked with him asleep.
He's 28 years old.
Blue's first year in the NHL.
He's just lined it up.
But yeah, I think if you're right, though, I mean, if Colorado trained to a team like out of our and I'm like, is in desperate need of a goaltender and maybe doesn't like Barack won the first couple rounds, I mean, they should, uh, I work as well in what you get for cheaper as well.
I mean, count round re signed him two for a two year deal earlier in the season.
But, you know, I'm sure the Avalanche would love toe really fluctuate that contract.
So Okay, so we're moving on Teoh.
So here's a story about Jordan Bennington before he went to, um to the Bruins organization.
So on spin chocolates Dio uh, Paula Bissonnette run Whitney and the always we're innovating.
Um, it's just a story.
So he was with ST Louis.
Um, I didn't have an a h l team.
So they were splitting with Colorado's San Antonio.
So at training camp of his agent came in, um, to make sure Bennington will stay to qualify.
Um, some did so So Michio, um, told Bennington that you will be sent down the Tulsa for the East Coast sake.
He told him No, I am not going because e ch Elyse Lowe A Lee.
Uh, you were saying? Like he's thinking like he doesn't know if he's gonna come back to the NHL.
And so he left weren't from door came in, You hear its? That's right.
So So like, Bennington says, Marty, I'm gonna stop you right there.
I was laughing to a NHL legend.
One of the greatest goaltenders in his generation said you, Mari, I'm going to stop you right there.
Yeah, I mean, I'm good for banked in, though.
I mean, hey, it worked out the end Silly cup, champ.
Probably has a very good shot at Wait, uh, get complain and a bit shocked.
I mean, shocked everybody, but the honestly, the blue should just I mean, yeah, yeah, he's a pheasant level right now.
Yeah, this is on the move on up.
All right, so I think I apologize.
We have some difficulties on my end.
Uh oh, we got breaking.
It's kind of funny right now.
So Gary Bettman is thinking Teoh, come back to the leak in July, Joe Jr July so far.
Hopefully this work, I apologize.
All right, let's move on to to another topic.
You told me from from the rundown video that marked map Marcel does not, like, sign with the under.
Like, what were your job or your opinions about bars all night? The talk of map bars all Yeah, I heard that the I didn't want to pay him.
And then that, of course, these massive bars.
I was like, All right, I'll just pet out.
So, you know It's very interesting if I'm at the bars.
L I'm going to a contender right now.
Like I like you know, you're about to hit your prime years.
I'm going to a Saley Cup contender off maybe thick in Vancouver.
Canucks might be a good option, mainly because, um, you're Bo Horvat that lives person.
And, um, Brock Besser, you have rock best you know mainly is your top three forwards.
And then, you know, you keep touch of fully around and I mean your golden you are golden right now.
If you are Vancouver in, you end up getting them.
So I don't know.
I'm thinking another team might be Maybe, uh, I mean, I would say, Aw, Tawab, like, you know, like I say, you would hate to, like, really? You with centers.
You know, at that point of your career like it, Maybe Toronto might want to get a shot at him.
Maybe New Jersey, perhaps Minnesota.
They want to get back into playoff contention.
Maybe Nashville as well. No team.
That's just kind of like wild card team.
But you know, if they really want make around the playoffs, get him because you know.
I mean, Matthew, Barney, settle Machu Shane and Filip Forsberg.
And you know, that's looking pretty scary.
Not to mention the pressure defense is pretty good, but what do you think? Do you know who is also a free agent Thomas Greiss? Uh, so it's kind of tough.
This was, um, gotten from my at me.
Um um Carl on labor costs keys.
Uh, this reminds me from Baghlan.
100 Bird calls the situation off men dollars per here level during their kind like $33 million a season.
Um, so if you're going for, like, Thomas Greiss Ormat bars l our habits if you're a little Amarillo, which it's the hundreds.
Jim, who would you hold on Grice or Barthel without a question bars? L I mean, you have semi in Varlamov.
So really is Grice much of a vital piece of this point? Yeah, Vorlon mops older, but he's also been putting up better numbers.
So I mean, if I was the honors every five, our long often trying to pick up a good backup in free agency.
So, um did you want Teoh make your topics or what? Well, actually, yeah, just go into a couple quick topics.
Um, the Columbus Blue Jackets, Reese trying Joonas Corpus Salo to a two year, $5.
Very smart by Columbus, mainly, you know, they get their goalie and, of course, else of Elvis Mursal in Skins as well as their current back up.
But it takes like a corpus sounds season, you know, 1912 5 record with the 9 11 say percentage and to shut outs.
Not bad overall.
He's so pretty good goaltender.
But, you know, I think I was smart.
Two years is what I would have given him.
But yeah, I think that given time for all of us to mirthless skins to ah, really start to develop.
And I think what? Vassallo will probably become a free agent within those next two years.
You might go to another team, but yeah, I think there's doing this is because they want play smart, and they won't wait from Ursuline skins to get ready.
But what you think, um, Korpisalo has been okay in my mind? Um basing complain person, Um, in the HL.
So I go live Hershey Bears games.
I think I saw him playing person in the color cup finals.
Um, I didn't like didn't recognize him, But once I heard Annette Korpisalo I thinking like Like he is getting develop more given.
Likely like two more years to develop and he'll be, Oh, we'll be elected Bull of the future is gonna be like Mackenzie Blackwood's level like black What is like 23 years old and, um, Darod Ergen Be like good future started to be like like their next next starter roll like Blackwood's course.
Schneider Um, not not gonna be a not going to be like, what happened this season? Um, yeah, you Korpisalo is gonna turn out like a good goaltender.
Um, a guy you can give him like like to two goals a game a little bit, um, sometimes like like higher.
Likely, like five times per season.
Five games per season? No, he is not the guy who gives you blowouts, so I So he is a wealth steady goaltender and and why he is not like I'm not in a panic trying to shoot like Miss Missile on anything like, I think that that's a good move on Columbus and I'm going credit Teoh, you remote pickle line and, uh, jackets gm for Resending Korpisalo.
Yeah, that's very uh, that's a good point.
Just to point out, always versatile in skin set real quick.
13 wins, nine losses, five shut outs with a 9 23 save percentage.
I mean, this kid, this dude is unbelievable.
I know there's awesome.
I've really enjoyed seeing them play so far.
I mean, I remember it was one of his first career games, and of course, it was Blue Jackets of Bruins.
Of course, you know, May I beyond for it.
And comfort house Merlis Skins name like at all.
But luckily I was able Look, please, very good goaltender and I I definitely know him now.
There will be no mispronouncing his name.
A temp soon expression out of the Blue Jackets will be facing the Bruins in the first round of playoffs if we do the whole playoff format thing but way, Yeah, And then there was a couple of other things that quickly wanted to talk about the whole Dustin Lachlan situation.
The Jets bottom at with contract.
I am way to waste your best player since your return.
Really? Don't give this angel, lad Blake Wheeler, Dust and Buffel in is the best Winnipeg jet since the return back.
Chausson 12 out.
Care what anyone says 2020 11 year your correction, but sorry.
Uh, well, it's all right.
I'll give it to you.
Well, what? Once I heard that he got suspended from the team.
So once he told, like in December, believe or January? It's one of the he said that he had, like, a leg surgery like foot, the ankle surgery.
It's just wandered the lower bodies.
Oh, he announced that, um, the team does not want Buffalo NT to have surgery.
He just went on by himself.
He just did whatever he wants.
Um, it's on him, by the way.
He just doesn't want to get injured injured again.
You just want wants to be healthy.
Just just get get.
Just deal with the the leg, the lower body.
Just just to deal with her rehab for a little bit, I would have been playing h o for approach.
See? See where he is.
And that's a great once he turns out.
Okay, then then you can have a beauty on the Jets roster.
Be like a depth defenseman for a little bit.
Just stand by for, like, five straight games and improvement.
Just Teoh recover his body and that that's cash a shock.
In my opinion, that was the fact that yeah, at definitely is gonna retire.
But by all this is gonna be a career ending injury for for Buffel in, but well, at least a He had a good season.
I mean, good career.
Won a Stanley Cup in 0.
10 with the Blackhawks for it.
I mean, once you're 35 it's not looking pretty for you right now.
So he he kind of remind me, but on a different level, Brooks or pick or been as a Caps fan, Just just can't Can't play missing.
No, I Once Brooks Orpik left Pittsburgh, he was No, but yeah, miss significant time with injuries.
And, um, and only think that dialect was that escort an over tunggal in the playoffs, which was like saying like, I think that that's a good way to end your and your career with an overtime goal.
Yeah, I think, um, I felt bad for for Jets fans because there there d cores in in a rebuild with Tucker Pullman.
Um, I think I'm Larry is in the roster.
What room? Um um as but say Benschop is in Montreal.
But anyone that I do not know besides Tucker Pullman and I'm Larry.
Then your urine urine, they face up your face off.
Ah, and I signed one more topic.
You okay? Gyo over year.
And you have any other stuff after this? Yeah, but we need to talk about Alex Ovechkin on Wayne Gretzky.
Oh, you're Yeah.
So as you know, where I talk about my last topic First, though, is going very quick.
Okay, Golden Knights coach to write a lot.
Might be picked up by the New Jersey Devils sometime this offseason.
I think I'll be very smart. Move.
Just quick opinion.
What do you think of that? And I know he's a free solid coach.
I felt like the biggest got rid of him was kind of really, But you know what? You think that um well, when he got fired, I was devastated because it just isn't guy that who brought the Golden Knights to the Stanley Cup final in their first year of the of existence when the Jack Adams or in that year, um, he has been well respected for all for all players.
He gave emotion in the 2080 bucks and the 2090 plus and even the whole regular season you gave your motion to like like bomb six players in like depth defenseman and just give compliments a lot like.
But if they give if they hire new, uh, glass in New Jersey, Nadal being a plus, not not yet.
Because it's been forever that Dylan has been in his coaching duties.
Um, yeah, I think in a second season with New Jersey, then is gonna be a powerhouse team.
I could definitely see that a lot.
Neptune knows what he's doing, you know, Even when he was on the Panthers, he was still pretty good coach.
So I just certainly interesting, you know, you saw you do a young teams like Florida and Vegas thinks just trying to build another contender down there in New Jersey.
Only a rumor, but that out no, really does.
Back on the map in, we say Friday will be the worst team in the metropolitan anymore.
If that's the case like New Jersey should been an improving team.
Like thinking all in in the offseason.
Having PK suban coming in drafting Jack.
Here's wait Simmons as your veteran problem men the tree Ford Top six.
Or I should say, and getting Nikita Gusev firm from the Vegas Golden Knights.
It's don't don't understand why, uh, John Hunter's John Heinz say the least.
So like, I don't know, but But we'll see on New Jersey's end.
Yeah, I should certainly, uh, be interesting, but yeah, you want get into your last couple topics here for your wrap up if he unfreezes? Unfortunately, we're get We're good. We're good.
Huh? I'm just waiting if if you're OK.
Yeah, well, we can at least hear your good, So I think that'll work.
Um, so next topic is, um, out ceviche.
Gin, can Wayne Gretzky, Um you guys can argue this in the chat right now.
What? But all right.
We can hear you pretty good. Snow.
I, um Are we good? We good? Oh, yes.
your personal are I apologize for the difficulties of one.
Just we just got deal with it.
Um, Ovechkin has a, like, a 70% chance of beating him.
Um, I want his objective to score by at least 40 goals in this season.
Um, like what My I never seemed like like slowing down, but he he never slows down.
He gets, like, 40 goals, like over 40 goals a year.
Once your game over 40 goals, like, not get, like, 20 or 30 goals, I you would see him in the top three.
Uh, that that's no questions asked.
Uh, it's gonna be like Ovechkin.
How and Gretzky a top three.
Um, I think that, um, that will that will finish like in the eight hundreds? Definitely.
Oh, you're Isn't the at, like, seven, like, 80 right now or something like that.
Who? Uh oh v Russia.
No, he's just scored 700.
Like a month ago, I knew what was acting.
Do you know what that give? How could I forget? You know, for your information.
OK, so I think I think over here has a slight chance of of like catching him.
Um, but again, like like he's not done yet to say the least.
E He has a good, good chancellor again.
That passing him? Um, yeah, well, I just find it interesting.
In a recent interview with Ovechkin and Gretzky the other day, it was fine.
Ovechkin mentioned if he had the stick Gretzky used back in the day.
You wouldn't shoot the puck as often, which that kind of blew me away.
Because, of course, Noveski as a sniper, and it's like, Oh, wow, now, just like Oh, I'd be like a tops like a 500 gold score if I played in Gretzky's ever.
I mean, that's basically what he was saying and warned me away a little bit.
Yeah, well, well, luckily, he was born in 1984 by Ovechkin.
So, uh, and fun fact, um, I was born did the same year that in Ovechkin's rookie year, and it's kind of funny the, um or coincidence that you've been playing my whole life.
Well, uh, born in May, um, in May, Late May.
It's it's cool having him, um, playing in my in my whole life.
Yeah, it has been a full.
It has been a privilege for me as well.
The watching Alexander basket.
I actually haven't Alexander Ovechkin jersey with the retro eagle logo that is there any way.
But yeah, I actually I I am a little Ovechkin fan myself.
Yes, the brooms kicks in my two favorite teams, but I've always had a soft spot for Ovechkin.
And I was awesome.
Seen him win the Stanley Cup.
I felt so had form.
Like, Yes, finally it happened.
You know, in reality, I mean, Ovechkin, he couldn't catch how potentially I'll think Gretzky.
But I think you could potentially pass.
How? Yeah, like and it might hurt.
Would you want on that? But it might be sad for from Ovechkin not catching Gretzky because it's technically hits his ill because, like from from all of this again, like 50 goals like saying like, But I I'm ingress key side now because I he is like all of his.
His main objective is to to catch Gretzky.
Uh, when like the first time that you moved over Lamu, it is time to get Gretzky in.
Uh, luckily, he's in the top 10.
Um, well, in the growth goal scores.
There's no debate.
No one cannot debate this in the chat off that he is obviously the best.
Both score in his Marr generation.
Yeah, I mean, if you're really saying Crosby's better, let's get this point just because it rings literally.
That's the only reason why it could possibly say across you about bad that much at this point.
Sauce across me, just injury prone.
Yeah, you guys can debate with bare over your front be we don't care.
It's no, no, but it's get if you want, are clear.
Are we might go with the last topic here for today? Um, I just put once, just just in case if there there's no no, um, Air Net problems.
Let's talk about Jack use.
Um, something went wrong with them in his first year.
Um, he had, like, seven goals, 10 13 assists with, like, 20 points in my life.
That was so sad.
But what were your er opinions like when Hughes came into the league? Did you think that he is gonna be, like, a little bit like Matthews or MK David level like Where were you expecting? I mean, I was expecting Capo Kokko to be the back prospect.
First and foremost, I didn't think he would have a better rookie, a prime, just in general, a better career.
I never really got to grasp on him yet.
I mean, he's good.
He's good young player, but like, it's just this just I don't really know what they think.
They have make special since his brother, you know, playing on the Canucks.
It is just absolutely lighting him up right now.
I mean, that's also a big factor that, you know, the all of the brother who was supposed to be this, you know, it was the number one pick.
And then you had this guy directed by the Canucks later that round.
He just blowing here and these blowing jack use out of water.
I mean, really, it's just just just kind of my rock out that worked out.
Unfortunately for his favor, I feel accused could certainly bounce back.
Did I steam being Mathewson Rick David, Not necessarily out of the gate.
You know, I have most.
I saw Jack use being someone like Clayton Keller, who was like guys a very good player, but you know, he's a good player.
Is not really gonna, you know, like lift that team toe like a Stanley Cup championship or anything.
And yeah, I mean, is like I I'm definitely not giving up on yet.
I don't think he is a solid player, I but he's kind of remind me a little bit Nolan Patrick, but yeah, I mean I mean, he's a solid needs.
Like I say, saw players still 20 room to develop on a terrible devils.
That's why me if they got drug a lot, I like that'll further is development quite a bit and definitely should be interesting.
But as right now and I'm sick of what that I do think capital Kaka was still gonna just edge out Hughes as a better prospect.
But what do you think? Oh, well, when I heard the name Jack use like in the 2019 World Juniors, I was saying like dang like with Quinn Hughes during Durga and be like 112 grace look like brothers like brothers in the NHL.
You're for for like Quinn, let Quinn as a defenseman, Jack as a centre, such for, um, it's different positions because ah, defenseman develop more and force develop more course summer like Malcolm Suban and PK Supan? No, because, like PK as a defenseman and Malcolm as a goaltender, KK lit like, not them up because, well, Matt Malcolm is more likely an HR level goaltender.
But, boy, what do you say? Um, I think use can, um can, uh, start over again.
Just say like, yeah, last season was was rough.
I should I should work, work hard, more and which I should be beyond bored with them because, like, Hughes knows what to do.
Um, I think let's look back in the 2019.
So, uh, when when the time your team USA coach coaches were beginning interviewed.
You're saying What does Joe Sakic like? What does care Forsberg like, um, like Ray Bork, like he's technically like studying the game, which which I should agree with, um, like, stare you in the game just to be like him to develop more like once you have drawer, go on 10.
Then Jack is more likely going to say, Look, now now I'm learning more a lot with more, with more experience with.
He's gonna get tons of chances because he's young.
He's 18 or 19 just just, like, give him a chance to develop an involved we're gonna talk about if if he does not work out being first overall.
So, in light as well, I think for for, like, this year with Alexis Lawford near, I think a lot anyway.
Columbia stud. Dude.
Hey, these were pretty good.
You look, uh, laughter near.
With 100 and 36 points in the Quebec Major Junior League, I think I'm going to see him see, like, 70 points in his rookie year.
Not not exactly.
Because if he's gonna be in Detroit, he might have, like, 50 points since Detroit is in the rebuilt.
But if you has to be buying by Lauren odds Ottawa might might be in, um, your jersey might be in Well, if it's Detroit in Ottawa is gonna be locked for near.
Who's watching work? Bergen Talk about that.
The draft suited later on.
Um, yeah, it's gonna be like Lafon here and by field.
Um, Quentin by Field 10 Stroot soul um, start.
So, um, de de stree dirt.
Are there gonna be be okay.
I think the prospects in actually is looking very good as well.
I like my I feel it's gonna definitely take by storm.
And like, um, some some prospects which, um oh, I'm gonna say only one trying to save it for for next week's episode.
Um, Kevin ball from New Jersey Devils with the terror hall trade.
He is a shutdown defenseman.
Um, the guy who who won't drop the gloves? Definitely.
Um, this plus in my eyes is electric, but yeah, plus 50.
That is like Paul Coffey.
But his 1st 4 seasons is exactly as us.
The fact that so that I can get it that high unless you get, like, a lot.
But sister, whatever.
Yeah, like Well, like my plus minus for my high school year was terrible.
Well, im I'm gonna be in my second season next year, so hopefully that that's going to turn around and go home, and yeah, hopefully, um, more prospects coming in.
Like I said, laughter near by fetal.
Um, do you just guys get we'll definitely work out in their in their careers, but we're not gonna touch Oh, their 1st 3 seasons, cause that's their like, their entry level sees Create, uh, one once there, like in their four season or fifth season on Dent.
And we after, like, top talk about that.
But But we'll policy for for like right right now.
And, um, yeah, um, I think I think that that was, say, um, that is a good podcast for for today.
Yeah, well, the guys we were expected to call for 1/2 a Knauer.
But don't worry. Was sorry.
Had some technical difficulties.
What? We are getting new to this.
Hopefully, Alex's connection King a little bit better and hopefully have so too goes great looking tries to get next week hopefully clinching and stuff out like it's up because for the past, like, 50 minutes out of your shoes were perfect.
So hopefully that will stay for next time.
