Packer fans I don't know why you deal with a guy Mike McCarthy he's. Full of guys pulled it but he's also trying to create value when he. The public perceives it there is one. So by saying that he's a first round talent. Well then when you paint Aron Rodgers lessen what Aaron Rodgers wants and he's disgruntled.

You know that you have people that that you're close with in your own neighborhood there's a sense of security and safety that comes with that. I'd I'd I feel bad for you if you don't. Injured guy I'd add.

Situations with with their immediate neighbors and I'm telling you man. I put a value on it. Rich canyon analog the most ever. An extra neighbors never I was exposed this last year when your wife had the eighties party in the bought mail came out yes he's. It's like CC gas came out strong. Strong and support.

Toxin sabres hockey can read his work of buffalo hockey beat dot com our guests next in the sports park danger and the tag Leo on ES PM Rochester. Voice of The Beatles John Murphy can pills wallet Famer Steve tasker if you almost leaders knew was right. Exclusive interviews lined up each city. FL analysis Murphy and task or take you inside a locker ran down on the sideline to keep you want to meet with him. Hill's right here he knew this three on the home on the Buffalo Bills EM ninety and 957. Thus affords leader ESPN Rochester. But it's tough you know flowers it. I'm a sports bar with the injury exactly and ESPN Rochester. With his ear to the ground and all things Buffalo Sabres hockey you can read his work at buffalo hockey beat dot com. The Brady bill hobby or gas in the sports bar with danger of attack we have Phil hi event. Anger or your bill you look we're just enjoin these Stanley Cup Playoffs wondering what will be like some analyst in New York when it comes back our way. Blocker in the in the term. I mean now holly if you'd Dolly from what we've seen how much of an impact player. What this player beat buffalo or any team that drafted him. Well he's going to be huge impact cleared and you take over state thing that can sustain image. So we think it over quite a prospect the player I mean he has every how everything actually. The real deal about dissent occurred at ski and it chilled ready seventeen of Egypt turned eighteen last month. Illiterate and terrific defense and NHL franchise defenseman and I think he's the kind of guy who could change the trigger at least you all having. Favorite unit number one bit and Beckham. Play in every situation point five minute. Our and I think ever written the line you know pretty good but he he's got to become overrated I think there's too much. Well up pressure put on I think here. Given too much ice time and I think the upper collider link below that airmen. Is this somebody different that the boat in the paper. Milicic is there a way that we can reject any ads that were were we haven't even knew I hit the draft in of course is a lot of of a pre season to go before we talk about what that starting. Lineup looks like on opening night but I'm I'm curious as to your thoughts as to how these defense been pair up assuming. The dollar lien is the guy it's a strong assumption he's gonna be the number one overall pick he resigned Casey Nelson. Out recently how did this how does the Blue Line a pair up for you appear if you look at an opening night for Buffalo Sabres. Well I am happy reassure apparently there's a big chance especially with. Colleen a beautiful red replica pistol and could be treated. It would that's pretty good return it the guy that. I think he'd betrayed his interior unit changes eatery. But I mean I'm not sure what I think we'll be a notable trademarks papered whether. Animal card reader someone notable though are you expect now. Even at the rookie that. Probably be their number one defensemen at least by the mentally you're only a year ago. Maybe he's paired up with the linemen. Expect. It McCain could be better at an outlet here I think you that there are at or near her shoulder and even in the early but you expect him to be better. You'd apparently he's he's helped them. Coming back after B but I think with the secret because crying and I hope he advocates a that but it. Repeat the third career I think that the cricket. I mean they don't have that might be there and they're as bad as it is important for a few years they do that and. They'll hop beef from buffalo hockey. 957 ESPN. What do you think got raining cool he sits in geek is early in the season near Rochester wop okay he heard somebody that is. Dominating this level then goes up in there and you know that there would there were injuries so. Hi do you think you know that they a year handout for branding glean how you think he fits in next year. I think hit a pretty good first pro season I think there are a lot of an army beat sports America where you expect to do it basically skipped PH island in court the state court but I think easily kill. Hit him pretty well I think OK what he created a book favorite for about a ball they're so. Art it was telling me hopeful. Those. What else and do it just relying. Maybe. Maybe he doesn't start Mexican awful immediately Specter Rochester Vermont green bunker. Two months that needed given that Texas is again. He still played out there and eat it on the matter option with it yet so I I think that the chance even though it would be there might be a record for a little. Built towards the end of last season wind. It then became more more apparent that Robin letters that is probably seen. His last game in a Saber sweater. Hey I think a lot of us had come off as well we got all marketing he's proven only to improve the NHL level and that three game. Playoff series with Syracuse happen and we're all kind of going I know it's a small sample size but all market. Homer was shaky in that series let's be honest our week. Are we right in being a little lesson confident in the idea that the media saw mark could be the starting goaltender for the sabres to start next season. I opened with a very good chance that that'll be the starter at least. Ambiance and so whatever action I am not sure they are gonna do. It to address Burkle and a Beagle all marked at the well. Whether they trade and free agent. Market for bullies I'll earn a lot of very good free agent. In scenario which regular there yet so that it wouldn't let go sabres. But yeah I mean it here you're here mark over three bad games. The body of work over street North American O wave. Basically abandoned because under so but it over the biggest gain and that is what American clear if you'd think a brew though. I I think eat at pebble picture. But in the long term vital it affect the the secret plant for him he should be here. Hey Jason barker was true his words saying that you wanted to start the rebuild here Rochus during although. The playoffs is short Ron it was normally made the playoffs they'll. A lot of decisions at this level that certainly all it will impact buffalo what what what are the biggest decisions do you think that's facing. Bilateral when it comes to it you know from who saw significant nice time here Rochester as far as who may not be with the organization next year. Well I think I think he can be charged with finding their rhetoric pictured mixed again. There are a lot of prospects they're gonna regulate correction in the interview earlier William organ growth for full year that the prospect. I get to go to my head here but. He's however right Richard. They published HL guys aware. Figured it'll be signed older guys that were were the curtain or hurdler guy Redman who shall ask the and and persecuted and it's a prospect. They were one of the best he will be rely so I suspect the playoffs the target and ethnic. He did a good job with written I think that's what you have to try to do again just signed the right that your not that it really good sign that the players like we thought Emery. To a few years ago where you throw money at these guys are one to capture the dynamic of the ratchet it you can battled a much better job of doing it. Bill poppy buffalo hockey B dot com our guests in the sports party German tag Leo on ESPN Rochester last week. Brandon or Russ Brandon resigns and the boys sabres Twitter. The bills Twitter are erupting after the resignation. And then of course the the appointment of Kimba goalless team president now the first thing that I started seeing immediately after that was announced from sabres Twitter specifically was. I never gonna hockey guy get a read a hockey president ought to present not. What side of the fence do you want aiming at you look at. What Kim Google is gonna be doing it in and that Ross brand and roll is it's more of the same or do you believe that that. The sabres do you actually need to get in hockey person in that team president role. I think a happy person would be very definite key role would you look at that role can look at. A lot of successful game they have a hockey. Person in that role there immediately or. The world would I look king. There's some. Name that are speaking. And yet British yet and that there are some of them may beliefs are all wreck. Look these and they can do it on. Typical very Smart. Are woman and that's just ridiculous you can do. Cheap cheap certainly any different than Robert Ray put the bill that would curb our I think that on the job from there are so what's real about. It eat you brought up the rinks there and at. Our perspective here Rochester les if bill when when I go to buffalo on while this is really nice but I realize things and every the stories that. Maybe it is time from upgrading your opinion. I'd just just how extensive. What's needed here it to keep bank arena as far is this a remodel their talking about. Oh why. It. You're. Currently it's 21 years old and they are sure Hillary by. All the other candidate with partner and NATO MBA Rick bloom and a mid late ninety's and a level of the plate is there. Undergoing. Renovation order. Have already under on reputation and I think it is not knocking out Lowell expanding if it's a lot of it just. Here. Being eaten he thinks matters. Or dirty to be a lot of America every thirty year. The prime target by the clean eaten that it seemed like bet that he monolith that there are. Promote maybe similar projects. There. At people's eyes but it is it's a lot of air it for a typical. Probably be charged with that brought Brandon went on trip they'll they're ranked the they had gone. Adam. Shall probably an air. What kind of reputation. In Italy and it it it need it it's or they get away ability year I think they need to really go. Because the earth to show. Bill I mean you spent time at across Serena when you look at blue cross Serena and keybank centering you put him side to side of course. Buffalo would be the priority that's the pro team but. Hey you know everything you're describe a bookie Bakes and we've been dealing with the Rochester for Plano last five. Ten years amino you know how do you prioritize Dikembe below oh what needs to be fixed first and that that the arena with the leaky roof. Or the arena with C a dirty seats. Well Arctic. And it so it may take priority over the age so yeah I think they. They met in electing rectitude and the F have to be attractive compact. I go there maybe five and I'm the year I could. I can't heal the problem. Probably illegally in the league with an elite within an what do you. Older building a lot of the Levin who were Greg where were will be ideally Antoine. I I think they're beautiful like many young children and current rate outlook crop compared. Did you do I mean back into when he fifteen now and no one at stir the pot here but it there was talk that the yeah Merck's Lloyd. The US perhaps split half their time may even play games at the harbor senator edit it. At Harbour Centre could never housing HL team full time correct. I don't I've witnessed the 2008300. I don't think so I bit the preceding game every year. And I I guess they could move on game they're put that that the really work in my opinion. All hoppy. Is the editor at buffalo hockey B dot com if you read his work they're really good stuff like joining us here. In the sports bar with danger attacked the bill let's let's look around the NHL we saw one series come to an end we will we'll get to. What the hell is going on what Vegas and and and just how they've done they've they're they continue their improbable rumbled forward that I wanted to talk about. Is enter commander Cain. We wanna trigger that conditional pick Jamie would you know that it with a Stanley Cup which is what we're kind of all on four but. And now it's just a matter of him resigning with San Jose what do you think the likelihood of that is. I think it's very possible he seems to sit very well there played well there it is there. I mean what people wondered where the better. And you use your ankle over from there of course. You know your couple of brokered by. What the piano days and act you know playoff round. And it and it will give her a dual about a year or so. They can give him a good deal I don't think it went private property and break the bank but I don't think it's gonna get it. What more immediate would hurt our storming pretty maybe get five years of thirty million sharks or years or whatever act. And could very partly. It in dangers on the we're really get the touch on here but. In the loss on Saturday now make their Friday night Brian Gionta was on the nice and die you know did not tie up this man that Dublin for the game winning goal. Boston's now on it it. Bill hoppy our guest here in the sports bar bill is is that if for Brian Jian Terry can museum holding out hope that duck who try to give it another go there. Well what political life. Michael what but the Bryant out of let's shift in the NHL. It could be. We gonna be forty years old I think in January. Right dollar four year old days ago. Public support of all it'll be the here it's see you want to move everybody that are. Real life interest sensitive Olympic. That never say never but it earned him the complete throats were locked in somewhere overseas or in the excellent. And included plenty of opportunities that are further NHL I'm not sure there are a lot of legal or. Bill were about enter our conference final season. Vegas is punch their ticket we've got a couple of game sixes tonight. Boy I'm just curious you know first of all hot what his Vegas is done. It to continue this remark Gorham and nobody could of predicted that this was gonna happen some people. You know these are expected that your typical. An expansion team fare out of Vegas gold knights who is certainly what we haven't seen in I'm curious Alston as to whether or not you think one of these two series tonight will come to an end. Well I mean they get so I mean I thought they mean OK I didn't think they'd be. Everything I have fifteen win like a lot of expansion team who Wear no I don't think. Their. They just living there. Ferocious air decree with the number older they'd they'd never quite like that they would all be that it's amazing that the debate on the already I think what the rates were upper school upper and I mean. They have in the air real reckoning that might with a critical. Earlier this theory. When a picked and I Nashville would occur at the very good I mean they've been building now for a while auto. I don't think because they're outlet ago in. Different kinds of adult with a lot of people realize how good they are. Right now of lack of depth that's there everything you want to be. They could win at all. They're about to back off topic of the best in the NHL so that's impressive. And then Washington Pittsburgh you you're you're walking could not trigger a wave of Al below it. But I mean they have the penguins a liberal media that finally their year. I mean I keep watching this Washington Pittsburgh series thinking OK it is where the penguins blow this in game five. He didn't oh my gosh but that being said bill. Because the K seven I still don't trust them at Washington's gonna move on it's got to be tonight correct. Yeah you would think but the main thing that that L so let's get all the greatest. Clear their medical history. Did you ever play in the copper I think they're important piece of what we are now and day reviewed them never to level at all. So maybe this is the year if not it's your Adam Opel. Off the top my hat on and go back to Winnipeg series I don't know what Tyler Myers plus minuses but boy bull when you kind of watch his game. Under the Jewelers die it certainly seems like he still somewhat of a liability out there on the blue Lendl I don't know if you're seeing the same thing. I don't want this period that closely watched when I wouldn't last week but. Acting. Defensively when they have a bit much for them on the right I it if there's going to be mistakes and they're gonna are caught up. They quoted welcome to be aggressive and at and amp but I think parliament. And I was right. I was that the sabres should it happen again because they're a big portrait of right now. And I think Tyler Myers is one reason that get there but it should position and Eric. Abdullah hopped buffalo hockey beat our guests bring you back to Buffalo Bill a fill in the blank question here for a the biggest decisions facing Jason bot troll this offseason is. On board. Whether in fact he treatment. That's my that's my biggest. Maybe a forgetting something it. Well I mean I guess on the surface. Yeah if you get a good response but but they are you saying it is a big decision because you he still court being that. Top pairing defenseman everybody hopes here bell is they're still hoping your mind then that you'll figure it out. Yeah yeah I think than. For a lot of where you're good you get that he's wearing and it shouldn't be playing. Them. He never added. I lead the lead them to pick the restaurant am. You know what your body mobile there isn't Carrie wracked by enemy or adequate equipment. It's forty points leaders of Asia and are you not think that a bit player by any stretch. We do with trying to Raila. Well it at all I mean you do archery. If their market for him because people are herbal auto market again you can order a perfect player who just. Maybe you shouldn't quite clear that much maybe either. Too much pressure and interpret produced offensively stoked port. And that of course is worth it Lockett went like are we called it I don't think that meant. Easter when the hell hole in the U retrieval travel very. But. I mean those words and the fact that they it and he maybe they move rocker I don't know I would will beat them.
