You know I don't know the reunion tour could be a little up. Path as well same could be said for Stevie next to. OK that guy Huard IQ well are right solicit. Daryn sabres. Are. Tough sledding right now heading west to San Jose what are your thoughts so far after what you've seen from them. They're not as good as we expected out of the gate you know I mean. I was abundantly obvious from the get the meter to double to seem to be in new kids on the lockyer wow. I mean they they handled the draw Maple Leafs who before that that there where you would oppose sabres sent. You're regrettable papers were recognized as leaks that last night that game what the governor skull. You know dot reporting off of going in to channel a and you know the thirtieth team in the National Hockey League and there's a lot of room for improvement but. Yeah the skies and all its not its three games and clearly all flow at the plate it's back to date. Clearly little while ago a lot of work to do their putt you know it's sort early that I'm not one who's got my hand hovering over the current but yet. Let's let's talk about this New Jersey team for a second because not only is irrelevant they dish lax to Toronto Maple Leafs last night and Craig made a great point to start the shorter days. He said are we all breathing a little bit easier today knowing that the team across the border that everyone's picking to be the new. You know the new diamond you know got pounded by the same team we did I mean what's up with New Jersey. Now I I mean it it's a good ballots and their played a lot more praise than I'm used to seeing them play. And it seats wave after wave at least it was a lot game and I lock up my game pretty closely. Yell what do balance you know we're we're lurk right eco future. Obviously be your first pick overall all that you wanna discuss and analyze this play but. As good as he has. You know you'd use again seat currently appealed brat. Seems to be a terrific fit for the new agers he doubles last night look who's scored paired with the Toronto maple leaves on their heels. Really quick grip on Adam Henrik was really good enacting their goaltending always get them a chance to win so. I've wells I got carded a couple. I mean I don't know what the heck is battles baca. Are you serious news Jasper brat. Whose eye and give but Gibbons you get discord two against buffalo and one again miles iTunes or uninteresting story could you wanna know something he was obviously develop properly he came up through wilkes-barre in the Pittsburgh organization. Rather. All right well again and looked at the eyes of aberration or the general answer obviously and and some technical and and I kept trying to correct this back at buffalo and in some way. You know I I'm sure thing can go as low laster forgot I'm anticipating or expecting. But you know sometimes you need a couple three years did he get the pieces and not just through default but to make sure that you know as a coach. If you got a floppy that you're trying to employ you got on the right players played a bikini. In. And maybe maybe we're getting an indication now. You know some of the pieces that surely as broad and a lot of you know what I'm not the lottery if you will get first pick overall all's they are all contributing to the fact that the double brought to a great start. Yes now hosts are gonna go are just gonna say talk of all will butcher he's got five points in three games freeing his first game as he chopped note right now into Calder favorite I know it's only three games and requires that a year ago this camera with us. Well hey I mean look again three games in each count could exclude him from that possibility and you know they're going peace and so mother names that are gonna challenge him and ultimately and and future could be in that group and Charlie not deploy in in Boston. You ought to. Expect he's gonna have a hell of a year and buster and Vancouver and in honor Monaco yes it right there are great there's why not. Now and and you know I had Western Conference team. Apps need. About what her last night and you know how his team and I Icrc or the candidate that. Certain members of the organization push real hard this guy but the general manager wasn't on board just didn't see. And now so he's great when did you Abby don't watch in this cute like how could it be. They look pretty good to me looks that he would have been nice sit on our power couple doctors some of the conversations that you out. We guys to you'll look for certain players and end up losing got pushed don't. Don't convinced their management group that that's the right way to go and then this player at least the short term. In a real small wind a little work turns out to be a pretty good client. Yeah you know. Talk talk about Jasper brat. Yo he's nineteen years old five foot 10175 pounds just three girls and six points plus five in three gaps and I was actually nervous he's got round to round last year a 162. Overall making this team is in nineteen year old. Do we can you tell us anything about this kid. I'm not really that. And no other then I'd like I remember the dropped on and I you know. We you get to that he'd been dropped. Who's kidding who let me right. We're we're not sit there and dissecting every individual player what skills I mean. You generalized right you you look it is history allocated op at number pretty well. But you know the size factor in Ken and and yulia Archie to be big enough to play the pro game replace the NHL allow holders big question mark decided that. You don't dole without any player beat up for contract or a sixth round pick. Until they match up head to head in the national. And you know again as is good and he's been and it's a great story development only a terrific story but. Let's check back game. Hi yeah just in LA yeah you're right I mean. It's a great start for this can mean he could come he could finish the season with six points Armenian army and Al mot the one thing the kid has gone form now. He played. Division wine in Sweden he played against Amanda the last few years when this kid with eighteen and seventeen. He was in the division one Swedish. You leave. Oh lead and playing against men. Now you're gonna see. This kid is probably a little bit to further along in development when he's nineteen he's already played against big strong men and. HL isn't nearly as physical as it once was offered for that to steer it away that's not gonna happen anymore they can play with man they complain with the man Tim might be any easier this player to play that's right eight. Hi Darren let me ask you this rim and I had a little bit of a wager you're just tuning in Darren Gregor joining us today not tomorrow. I can follow Matt Darren Gregor TS and hockey insider I have been on the record. And so is Jeremy Roenick and other people around. But rim has not about fifty goal guys in this league. And Alex Ovechkin. Particularly. You know this is freakish. Out. Especially for today's dating game day and age what do you think he ends up he continues this pace. It well. I don't know that he continues pace I I've been there yeah at the game in Ottawa. Where they opened it ought to lie against cal and I mean these court Patrick in six and out. But it was more look the bumbling and fumbling the Ottawa Senators are well armed and immutable parties that it met up with a Nat teams bureau lights that. No because you know as you'll get old beat the clock in a spot where he's able to fire and you know three eagle tactical report that peek at score. By shooting and not go on the back Karen on the shootout and you know he's. A regular player when it comes to the you don't rotation. But you know you put the puck in the scoring area where he's ready to fire and and any score that is exactly what it got so I I think vote does this brash. Did defense of most teams around the National Hockey League especially those in the Eastern Conference typical Arch Capital. Regularly just are minor they pretty in this guy number one can't turn it over there's no shock. In the defense the old but make sure that you know when he's on the argues that facts and options on the Belmont after. Do you do you think you'll score fifty goals this year. I do. Yeah I didn't. I I think that if the scoring parade is. Is going to come back down her girl that you know we got some big numbers Chicago at least bank Pittsburgh Penguins. You know that believes that they get to it to Greta Craig and you know that the New Jersey double B tour on all. In 06 school and beating buffalo with the school's all that I. I mean I think it's going to average down and we're gonna see a lot more up 3142. Port street IP games says canteen. You used to each other the chemistry tighten up the current lead all of those thing. But in saying that you know with a number of penalties set the appear to be. Consistently being called here he can get a lot of opportunity and it is anyone capable of I concur that the I mean I'm not gonna wrote him off the list I think he's got an excellent. OK so Fiat is an excellent chance of scoring fifty do you think they'll be multiple fifty goal scorers this year coming up. Yeah our. I don't I don't think so well I don't again I. In others the council that when you look at you know that's what a look at that the number actor in the first record these it. You know we go we probably wouldn't it the other could be ten or 58. In Holland and the opening act to Vietnam to minors. He was just out of his mind again the towers I think all the analyzing. The tape and watching. In that game and I'll make better use it hop harking you know match up against that beat Calgary closed down very good defense. And he's made futile got it looks silly. You know is he absolutely a lock to score fifty look like in the opening game in the but now hard to say and you guys there's better and I do but. You know score fifty entity scheme it is it's not easy you know there's a fortunate few are not more. Daryn ten years ago it was hard for me to score one. Sold out doesn't you know it's it's very hard score in this league but I don't yet I am what's out. Want a year ago on new years ago and guys get fifty for on. Is about the change is that right went to the right what's going on out Vegas they're doing things right. He you know two good story again you know this group and come back down under. You know James Neal well wire but. If you hit people guys look like Yuri Al bottom wouldn't count and it. So you know they're playing on a motion for a number of different reasons you know if you wanna keep it in the Reno clock. A lot of these guys they're playing for pride and playing for their career sin and job security moving forward in the game not just didn't. In Vegas and you guys know this mean that that can fuel a lot of productivity. You know that the atmosphere the environment of a school night and all this spectacular I happened in the building yet but. You know hockey so who's there that everyone's on alert and you know regardless of the lots. You know like Winnipeg when they first return to the NHL jet could do no wrong in the eyes have apple is now and you then you got. The current events element that that about where we emotional everything. The net I don't think unity in our area has been through. And and so everything that's going on right now around days all he charge and I think the players treat. Do you I tell me and you know not a lot of people know both this guy he was Vladimir. Or vitamin. Should pull offered that the Russian player that came over. He's torture why don't. Yeah late in the that came over from the cage Al he was one of the top scores in the cage Al thirty years old he ends up signing a deal with Vegas. But he's in the minors what's going on out. It's a weird one and and obviously he didn't blow them away it would count four or uses preceded him. Strengths or lack thereof otherwise you and held out rockers bought and you know at least from the moment they don't seem to outlawed for him. Now the report that cut gonna disturb buzz around Vegas was that you know you want to go back to engage all he wanted to get back rush. And so yeah I reached out to Peter's quota and represents. Ownership and throughout the end activities now that's not true I mean he's willing to stick it out. And he's not go back he wants to. This stay here and and George McPhee in the days golden knights you know happen ducked down into the specifics as to why eat it up ball why. He's playing in the American League they just say that you know they all these part of their futures salt. We're we're odd position of trying to take an educated guess to be honestly yeah. I'm not collection in global I believe when I asked him in the moment that was the case that this player wants to staying continue to try and battle for a spot. In the National Hockey League but I think that again this is. The type player and a scenario that we might have to visit on our monthly if not a weekly days. You know what I don't agree with what the voters said. I think this guy got sent down in the minors because he was not ready for camp he's not ready outer NHL hockey he's thirty years old and nick it when they're paying them the kind of money that they are doing. They need him to be a guy that's gonna perform and play well he didn't so they sent in the minors and I've they're probably gonna try and push remote and he's gonna go back to the united. You know. They're gonna and rip up the contract to go back to Russia. Well and end up fine as long at all tiger. Do it's. Again there's some legalities that. Cover up this kind of thing. Commodities while supposedly. Where a player like is to just say welcome all the national example Barack mutual. Yeah I. I think you do it all blows daughter. The contract of an NHL player and usually they do. Well what if both sides want to rip up the contract. Yeah that's not easy to do and from an NHL perspective it's all illegal so. We'll see I mean can they lol don't I don't know I think that there's multiple layers in this. All right Darren thank you very much great stuff you're traveling where you. I mean intro for the moment but. A lot on outlaw. Earlier today intact all right well enjoy your trip I'm Lyle touch over the next week. Yeah boys have a good thought our thanks Daryn.
