and we are alive.
Welcome back to another Carter hug Stream.
If you noticed we're in a different location by a little bit better in this side of the room.
Uh, we have some breaking news here in the NHL.
You have not seen yet.
The Edmonton Oilers has decided to opt out of the 2020 NHL playoffs, which I think so far is the surprise is the most surprising Opt out so far, actually, second, most present.
Um, we'll talk about that on the show.
Uh, a little short 10 minutes.
And now that joins three other green will join three other players and opting out Travis Ham, Nick Roman pull off.
We pretty much knew was gonna opt out.
Bertie at the Vancouver Canucks when I want to welcome Brian Birth joining the stream.
Uh, so we first got word about 10 men's CEO of the often out for migraine.
And I think this is the biggest surprise because of solely of the team that my green place for He plays to the Edmonton Oilers and he was acquired by contended Trader Line, and the reason is he is going to point in Edmonton and I know different cause.
He really can't be with his family is going to stand in the hotel, but it's he's gonna be close to them.
And I think that if you're playing in Edmonton and you're on Edmund Oilers, then I think that makes sense.
Why? But the one thing is, once again, you're gonna be away from your family.
You're gonna be in a hotel.
You could risk your health nurse, other people tells.
I think that's just too much for a player to handle.
So the other three guys Teoh oft out, was most unsurprising.
One is wrong. Pollak.
He had already signed a deal in Europe, but it gives the Czech Republic where he's from in the offseason.
I said that I suppose it off season.
He said that he would return to the NHL even if season resumed during the break.
Before we even had word of a resumption resumption Flay.
So I think everyone was kind of seeing that coming, especially when he's left off Stars training camp roster.
I want to wrap welcome Brickfields joining the Stream and just in the court on Upper Guy is guy I've met personally or one of two guys also plays in Alberta, Canada.
It's TRAV Atomic of the Flames, I think, he says, You just welcomed another kid and he also has a kid ready.
So I think it makes a lot of sense for Ham Nick to opt out.
And he was the 1st 1 knocked up.
And once he insists choice, I guess now both Edmonton and Calgary will be losing a second pairing right handed defensive and my green.
And Trump's having again hammocks.
He believes. The Islanders.
My favorite team personally a couple years ago for the traded and great trade that Linda Noah Dobson Andi think Well, you'll be.
Or was it it was a shop on? I'm actually going to link in the chat.
Yeah, right there.
Actually, uh, you know, uh, interview with Hammer Nick back into 17.
Uh, was great to meet him.
And like there, if you want to check it out, I think it makes all sense in the world or some of the sense I know it's supply office.
That's the one thing I don't think guys are an opt out.
And this we're gonna see rapid fire opting out in this weekend because I think Monday, five, I think five is the time, um 100.
Sure about that.
But that's the deadline for guys to opt out.
So after that, you're not gonna see anymore God loves.
You know, uh, I'm interested to see anyone on my favorite team.
And there's upset my other favorite team. Baseball.
The Yankees have not had anyone leave so far, thanks to the popcorn decker burger.
Uh, and that was Rick.
So the fourth guy open right out there too much is number two of the Canucks.
He is the It's only forward to opt out.
So far, we're gonna have more.
I cannot see this.
A lot of good winners.
I don't really think he would have been playing too much anyways.
He was buried of leave.
So it's not, too. They will loss.
And I think the main deal is it's all about their families and their own health.
Those are the two main factors.
I don't seem to win.
I mean, that's just now it is guys they want to do, is and I'm gonna pull up a statement.
Uh, these guys with the trump folks on Is there on health there on families? Nice put in you is number one.
And I don't think you can really attack a guy for doing such a thing like that.
And I really have a hard time seeing what people see when someone says, Oh, typing the hammocks, A bomb should have opted out Joy missing the playoffs or whatever.
Uh, not very good complaint.
But I just think that for you as a player, you gotta put yourself first and you need to know who is number one in your family on beef them.
Especially if you are having a young kid kids.
And we saw a baseball Buster Posey which adopted twins.
That's why he opted out.
Uh, I think that makes less sense.
Posing was less got opt out in baseball.
Um, should pull up.
Ah, this statements from team, see if we have any new information.
Ash will not do that right now.
Um, so I think it Oh, no strong.
Keep the short to deliver the news.
And I think that makes total sense of these guys.
Um, once again surprise that green, especially since the oil is traded him.
I think it's a huge blow for the Oilers Onley because they only got my dream for the end of the season and the playoffs.
And this is from a point of view in February when you're not really paying attention, Teoh coronavirus.
You don't think it's gonna matter.
And instead you have my green.
You got hurt, we don't right away.
And then my green, notably in the playoffs and then my greens free agent.
So I think that makes it absolutely When the Detroit, you know, I think only 1/4 round pick.
So it wasn't the best return, But I think it, uh, definitely one for the Red Wings, especially if it's only a couple games.
So I think that right Green probably could mean to send your Remington is over room pull off.
His tenure in Dallas is over, and I think only have Nick of those guys are probably gonna be a big force under two next year, as I wanna welcome Matthew joining the stream justice for about the end of it, Um, you're new my green, a couple other guys to know if you want a typing in a chat, mrs for today Any other track? Street and I ever have to talk some sports before.
Um, so I think I'm just gonna wrap it up pretty quick.
So I think you guys offer watching once again shook out my blogged carter dot com.
