Still time to the question away the Twitter right now. If you wanna buffalo winter classic all star game frozen four will choose which one. Oh would you want to have Pearson had canceled 1130 but right now We have the pleasure of spending more time is. At a report team name there who topic is too in fact it was Saturday talked all day long. Favorite player growing up so they are higher income. That which they have waited at that point guys have problem ahead I'll bite my tongue and this one's been the first time. But a big big element that come Monday this problem like golf tournament and start off the year about the bond he meant it adamant about a year. On popular figure there. Still could add to this day and it's one of those events that. Everybody comes seemed to come back for especially here at liberty goes back to this report those who wore. Out now you know it's. It's funny you say this bottle is probably one of the best chapters for alumni relations and the national heart I started initial on the table 5060 years ago. In Calgary has agreed to Montreal Chicago. Saint Louis has a decent when they're coming around yeah yeah but I firmly believe that buffalo is the best. As ours and things done. Whenever there's an event going on. Players disaster rules on where for whatever reason might be. You can always count and it's on usual that. To get a group of stick together the way we do. You know it's Tuesday it is adjustment moment is on the from the audience today but. You know it will talked it is core players or players that you know they're few years you know from in the mid ninety's early ninety's there's such counsel so that later talked in years. You say that two players in case there like struck last week now you know you guys are that tight you know we law. We we try to stay in contact like now it's it's it's a lot more difficult schedule their lives equipment but we still. Which the communities once and see things. Here we get a like Terry Mars and leave. Lose and lose you know we all relate to each other some golf Hanson Andrew. And it's just fogged in all to just of the lesson in impeccable. Funniest. Happen were a year now and which Europe to be responsible. It's a real good relationship with the artists ideally the mentality of the thought process when. Young guys like myself in mayors in Marty command mean what what guys. Also Ohio together in None the worse off one by one what these guys don't Nolan on all around paranoia draw more you guys and there are costs analysts seriously see like if you think he'll parole or me the old guys from the beginning of the franchise. Their kids look at those policies who are these guys that you probably don't even though we are. 60 well I'm sure some do what. If you don't come here a lot. And we'll change over the years it's like you have a high school reunion thirty years after you graduate from high school. There's a lot of guys going to be look at us or who is. In all and it's the same and hockey and I'm not going to be in two rain but. we sit back and look at the kids and and then we're going to introduce ourselves and well remember who we are but I'm sure most of the them unless you live here the chance to go and speak to that team. On. You know what it means dubious paper now and I think and make that. Stay the younger generation of pars today and then well went through that I did so and you're told and Michael never forget the one line in the in the years which is just remembers master list. And that's still meet today and think about often be excited to. If your career goals by pretty quickly and you're here today and you go on tomorrow. If you're lucky enough fuel last planned 121415. News. You should appreciate. Everything that's been done for you and how lucky that you are to live their lives that you live. A lot of kids are called upon on if chosen to make this. This great journey to the NHL or NFL. And you should never take for granted the good lord via. Work hard respect people and respect of people reporting tickets salary. Because without them you're and when someone comes to union wants us for whatever reason might me. To me I have no time I think that younger kids. Need to hear from some pluses to. What it's like to play and how he can prepare for retirement that's when it comes. A lot of people I think able. my two cents. Each year have a different alumni dressed eight years the team I once worn that sweater girl you know you're presenting me too by going out there and bust your arsenal there on the guys. You know both you guys you know the fans want to see plate full. You heard what if you are great in oil is not so now and I think that's look at. And you're right I mean I think here these they expect things. Ought to. There's only is but should know what it is it's the weather brought out that their Bravo and to an era where everything is handed to them now. He needs to start the song go talk to my agent can't play god bless and work that way about them because. He always had the guilt feeling pretty you know what what's wrong you know play human teammates and interest there. It's changed the whole game has changed completely it's a big big business that they. But the need to understand that you know whether you make ten million dollars a year when you make 50000 dollars a year. We all that this world the same. Not because you make more money and again next to you about it. And then once she learned to respect that you'll become much but assess. Appreciated absolutely he said because at some point the lights are obsolete and when they go all the forever. Pretty pretty armed robbery was. rivals line. Yeah can. You know even now there's going to be game time when no no. No no it's going to care at its foot and you know selfishly speaking it's great design. Well it's funny you say is years and years ago we always had an open practice during the Christmas holidays. And my the absence of falls. During the Christmas holidays so and Uga 171000 people in the building and want coloring Give some prizes. And go on the my card and it might have mentioned this to come back and progress. I hear this one guy and like several don't forget your friends on the way up as you meet him again on the way down. As apple on the and you know once it sponsors of this guy's right and my intention was not. Welcome back but I consign our announcements and what the maggots and back and if you to what was. What was retirement light and forget Finance all that stuff because that that's the most irrelevant part of the game I've talked and emotional side of walking away from the game we might have talked about this off the air before but just. Now you know I I. You know I believe that whether you like you the quote you just said if you whether you made for your retirement ten million dollars event are ten dollars in bank account there's still. A period of time where. You kind of feel like there's something missing in your life I mean. No matter how your or whatever but you are not. Who you used to be and not in the sense sub in the public guy. Well no in an effort to simply. Your reasoning for getting up in the morning. That is that is not easy whether it's it's sports Homeless you know what thirtieth in the conform to. When you do something you enjoy as an athlete and get paid fair amount of for one retirement strikes in the face. I remember when I retired. The summit was fine because no one's work. When training camp came in house and go anywhere that's when. It made the point where OK what do do it. You know you sit there and say okay I've had fourteen years real good time and roll. Would like to address them right. Some people wanna Mayan pension was not as. I wanted to do more than and then It struck me the hardest when I first sat in the stands watching hockey game. And I heard someone to me. You know why we missed you on there you're so good to watch them on and then the reason I'm saying this because when you play you come to the rink that were in the building. And by the time you leave the building. There's nobody in the You don't appreciate the impact you have. Two communities to kids families. On recurrence in the stands and listen to what speeds. That's what hit me the most. Yeah for me I'm I'm right now morally and it just sounds like that's kind of that's kind of a familiar theme that I'm getting this summer your fine because you're mentally your. Releasing everything anyway just summary you don't really have that game one. Doctor Bible is not on your mind it is one once training camp opens but. For me it was when the weather started to change in the leafs started change in the weather got cooler in the morning in your waking up and you're used to going in skating up every morning you're used to going in grabbing your garage going to the north town Sadr or your coming down here to work out mango stay here whatever year. Structure was. The weather started to change I mean. It was always an exciting time seasons starting in all its you know it's it's what we're most familiar with and then all of a sudden it's like there's like that gap when training camps going on from. And the Vargas to about when the season starts it was just slick and even games and it was just like come. That's why impression that's what you see a lot of players go into depression when it fires. They've gone from being in this the seven days a week with two minutes a month is a year to. Idling not the main things on the so there all. OK you know I'm depression how about showing up in no way. That every day you went to work when he guys had your back you could hurt and that witty guy and point 120 guys your locker rooms have a bad day like. This is any one of those players that your back out here in the real world. You go to when he guys that work it out of that date goes wrong case totals out of that always has got to go You should work there a terrible what to be here here. The view. On active. On the outside of the year had to think that. You. Players lip injury at an early age I mean pop them out early age in the end. It's not come off that mountain you're still young now. And gamble's Gillette and got to they drink out with a look at have to find something to and but not mean I have to. It was due respect meaning you you ever done. You can't compare. you know it doesn't. It's 80 at the sad part is that. A lot of players today for granite And that that's what disappoints me the malls. It's all about money. It's called well how much I'm gonna make as couples to. How much pleasure and I gave the that commitment to again stand often it happens. It's just. It's it's certainly it's sometimes to watch them play. And being paid that kind of money in an effort to and that's that's. Remember the rush used to get for a game oh my god you know what I'd be a I would I was always get in the room early. And it would get a two on them my underwear and I would sit there and I want payment for just a just. I have to get into ozone hand. Anybody assist you. Do you get nervous before again and so if someone says penalties in the wrong ball park. I was no different name emails I get nervous but the minute stepped foot in the east it was gone comfortable yeah that was I was home yeah. But prior to that. Only the public and yet the film lovers like someone's telling you when vacant 7 o'clock able case you put that to caged animals like to. Let me go let's do right now it's 540. Let's just get it over not only that you play a sport and a very very high speed. It's very intense. He inevitable if you careers command an inch two ships now. In all you go out there and if you don't think about things like that you're not human. You know what you're you're you're playing a sport that's demanding physically and emotionally. And in if you don't. Things before the game when you're preparing yourself as to what might happen that night I got arrested questioned mr. talking about thinking. And I have to imagine it's how many thoughts. Run through your mind of because I would have a million. Ever if I'm for the park okay and I know it's going to be. me that are here come out of the park. I'm thinking about every possible scenario elected. That the outcome how about mean. He can't rule out the bad ones right now I mean how many mean you have to think of Protecting yourself and eating the other guys in the park not caring about him. What you're gonna do with the parked if you get what you're gonna do win if you don't get the partner what he had to do to get knocked down what go greatly. And in all all it. Two strides and into what the way I I I salt and I played in college chase and someone to get the part. I L I never right now I'm always got into an angle somewhere it's where I could fail. Or I would never get hit some line and I only have so many options. To get the job So if he was coming from the right corner. I'm in action an economist left corners he has one week ago these guys turn when guys are getting it back then like it is now yeah. I either that that statistic at the bottom but it is important. You know which was on the brakes on did you ever have a guy what you're going. He's got the market is back turn where slide his hand down on my Garcia and Paul area ominous Polly pocket and that's optimistic yet but you know it's doable iron to a back down in all due respect. Passed off as the game was played as many fights and historic game there was a lot of respect and that's why. He's too many back injuries because not many guys from. It was physical yeah that was a lot of hits but they roam the majority were clean it. You get the couple idiots that no. You'd care to carrots one area but. The majority of the players played the game hard. But with respect. We have great respect for you appreciate it up by once again. But he got that at. longer I think we get another thirty not got on top. Again defied the Florida highest number fourteen great to be here and On Saturday kick off at 430. On the official voice of Buffalo Bills WGR Sports Radio 5:50 PM WGR 550 guys. A note on the sale of the Buffalo Bills that minute but first buffalo bills' tackle Marcel Darius speaking with the media for the first time it can't be addressed his off field issues was allegedly involved in drug arrest and a road racing incident.

Spiller cannot currently negotiate with the bill because he does not have an agent though the bills running back said he plans on finding one before the regular season on the ownership from the Associated Press. Is reporting that the bills ownership situation is about to take the next step. Bidders must submit formal bids that in the next two weeks college football Ohio State announcing that their quarterback Braxton Miller will be out for the season the browns announced their starter it will be at not Johnny Brian Hoyer will get the start. For the Cleveland Browns this year at least in week one baseball buys its faults of the red seven to do they play tonight and Coke coal field seven but in the major leagues Astros over the Yankees 74 tigers beat up on the take eleven innings.

Great stuff there really great stuff and you missed it go back into audio. That each year to and there's a real quick here. Trying to think where NH on NBC's. Tweeted out couple of these. What would look like a Major League Baseball teams had an sweaters and want to just go to Baltimore Orioles are pretty pretty sickened and it. Great absolutely great. The enemy if your baseball man. Hampshire if the Red Sox whites are nice to. Mean just looks really cool. Baseball teams putting on these quarters. Detroit surmise that tiger tigers ought to check error obviously unreal. When yankees are awesome right I mean. Iconic. In American sports. Cars no constraints though. I do like that it regrets.

That's the old Reggie Jackson married. Al Golden seals yes and the blue jays one's awesome too. Well they ego column I just read Twitter awake so you follow me on Twitter at capsule Lester. You can click on the link in check those things Seattle Mariners looks like the harper will masters. Nice. Couple other items. Because we're looking at him their cool it can't see them yet by Taiwanese yet there they're pretty sick pretty sick. In a good way with that a couple of signs all by the way speaking of Twitter or if you wanna. Call it your opinion why if the only one event. Come to buffalo. Hockey event that is whether the winter classic all star game frozen four. Or the world juniors which one would it be world juniors getting plenty of votes via Twitter. On capsule faster. Because of the amount of teams that come to the city the amount of games that are played. And so on so forth with yet. And the economic impact for the city many are also safety so very ice at the all star game. Because we haven't had what you're since 1978. The star power that would come to town. And I think the parties would be pretty cool calm all still be invited to parties and don't rate emulate the years that wasn't going to yours there's no question about that no problem coming fine. So and also do you review of the hockey line that day. Sponsored by eased him. Automotive. Now is that he had that bomb the other night he liked it. Now. Well as the humorous next all right I got the over it. That's what it. Pay it's wanted to comment that I think I'd like to the world junior comeback. And it kinda ties in the way it ready with Singh and I've been you know late currency and then. It seems like the guy You'd notice when guys are playing because of the money and what the world juniors but two weeks an incredible hockey kids are playing for their country it's not about. A paycheck singing. That's that's open I think would be great comeback. So you obviously in the last time. Aria yeah I don't we came out for like three days and I wish I'd be I'd come up for the whole week in our efforts. Weeks. Yet I was pretty you know if there are comeback. It is appropriate for 2008 team man and I think it's safe to say buffalo will be bidding. The music city USA expects. The strong created from this community for the event to come back here. And will be different this time he can host a rate year guys you have an arena the secondary Second site if you will. Together right next door so equipment movement tunnels things would have to happen win. You pared things down which new color. 2000 elected in Niagara did a great job and kudos to them for oh with a did that that it was great many to watch those games and then came down this site. Yeah that was really. Cool that time a year I think helps add to that event. Also you know the same time we're on the winter classic and New but it extends. Over into its old. Good point when a classic and it's received the most votes by way. What did she would world leaders world juniors. John thank you so much. Are your computer at good future put on the day it's. You know it just for people mentioned on Twitter. World juniors has received the most mentions. Would that sell. It's a pretty big part of it or how they get it back here though. they pass it around from year to year and they try to make it home base or something verdict controversies like yet it's open for the sole. Other cities. Have to pay a lot of these are open for what we around here that doesn't mean anything. Well done around here means nothing well. But other cities will compete. If you will to host the event now the the issue for. This city in this team. He's your display seen. York NHL team for quite some time. In an season night at a three day holiday break your. You're sending him away from this rank for a healthy period of time there was a game played. In between able to work that out in that probably worked on again off day. At the world junior has but for the most part you were putting your team. Out west or just you know out of their familiar cut sports but hey that's life right. You've got to deal. Trying to think about if players would. I mean your editor of the road trip anyway right yes it is or get it out of the way. And this year you know win over the team goes out west in October early on. This year heading out to San Jose. In Phoenix and west. Played those games. Should be you know that would get it early next. Year. You either show people how good you are or you just start off at the bottom of the barrel GAAP. Right those trips will typically the sabres it's always been out west. Late and unit margins a maker break trip more interest for teams to. what member of the Rangers last year. A west. And exactly governor outstanding performances and Jose. And the struggle started the first ten games of the year on the road in thing. Yes because they were there renovations to Madison square sort of like the same kind of thing if you think about it I mean you're forced what you're building for I'd say probably five game. Six games well what is your last time it was the day after Christmas. The team border flight for Calgary. It was head out west and played Calgary Edmonton. And believe came back. But I Calgary Edmonton and Winnipeg came back. Played a game. On an off day which was. Played in January 2. Around their money in January 1 when it in the off day and then it was back to the road. So wasn't exactly even though it worked on the role the whole time it wasn't the most friendly. Of schedules. hockey team time. But that's a price she paper for hosting. A prestigious. International event. And that's the last time US and it think about it USC had in 2011. There are getting again as a country. In 20187. Year gap. It is is Sweeney in Russia. Canada. You know it's it's gangbusters in Canada it was gangbusters here there's a border gangbusters here again. The going to be for USA hockey. Do you go back to the same place when he gets so infrequently. Do you go back to the same place again where you know it's a guarantee where you know it's a guarantee they did great. But if you're trying to grow the sport hockey across the country. Did you bring it elsewhere. I'd RO that is the challenge I think it. I think with hockey. You have to in my opinion. You stick to Wear your. Population of fans. Is located. Are located. And right here buffalo. Canada's right there. There's another attack for the Canada. Three hours of. The ninety. And or I mean there's just. Airports are accessible with Toronto Hamilton buffalo Niagara Falls. Rochester. It's the perfect setup. It's the perfect set up and not only wasn't so it wasn't just successful. Us it was unreal. Let's be let's be honest I came to that Canada US game here I know the Canada US game anywhere is going to be. Pretty unbelievable but right here it was. I've never seen an atmosphere that other than the classic which was just a different. Category of its own but I mean it was. It was unbelievable in the other games were incredible to they sort or thing. For the most part there yes it was it was sauce it's on my opinion. How is your New Year's Eve sweetening camp and they shoot out. Watched it the penalty box shootout it was incredible. Absolutely incredible. Actually I was stand there it may grow up would let me because he is present in the MVP awards what are the awards and that was one things doesn't target on the committee soul. Epic games so. Beaten higher in the pocket he turns to me says this is awesome isn't it might think that's it is. I mean everybody's on their feet. All these you know the Canadians who are rabid I mean rabbit. is as big of a fan you think you are pretty. You know I'll give it to our friends here at southern Ontario absolutely. Rabid. And what Milwaukee leading down to the book the book it was like you know the prime minister was walking down at all. You know he's Canadians and fans for international competition regarded Lindy and stand a box watching and they're all on their feet. cheer every rush was a 2012201111. It was absolutely knew it absolutely breathtaking. Absolutely breathtaking. It was great. Are we take a break come back. No players that signed deals. Hayes is found a team candidates not a team. to kind of break we'll play next here in the year. Are there. Here Brett back sabres a year on each year Sports Radio. 550. Kevin Sylvester Andrew Peters. Here we view our eight Kevin page is found home. Hope we can structure right. Kevin Hayes those whose Kevin Haiti's. Kevin Hayes is the younger brother case who now plays for the Florida Panthers who had played for the Chicago Blackhawks. Yemeni was a first round selection of the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010. Yemeni is the slated to play to outsiders into that mobile yet until last Friday. Decided deal the Chicago Blackhawks it is not about the size of the Chicago Blackhawks thus becoming a free to team in the NHL the bidding was spears. Fast and furious companies and cabinet is deciding to play for me. I still don't know. New York Rangers. The New York Rangers have reportedly side given David officially announcing yet but many many many reporting companies. Will now play for the New York Rangers but will he play for the New York Rangers up two weeks. A lot of at all. Surprised that he goes to a team that despite the Stanley By the New York Rangers active for him I thought but I thought it was all about. But roster depth and having an opportunity to play in middle average game developed to acquire the players were company news. What was his contract do we even know what she is the turner restrictions for a guy like that. Overseas as the US on the early entry level deal. So BA you know but he did get bonuses and so on and so forth like that obtain you know what keys for. You know Lisa these contracts. For college created to come out as reagents. Is. Public plane time of the so they can reach incentive bonuses are rookies are allowed to to give Max of three and a million. Much like it just game Edmonton that was one of the heels of David base salaries 900000 dollars on the rookie deal but how many. Incentives would be able to reach through time games played points as deeply in the power play all these things that they can guarantee you only talk but. You know made the he got to perform and make it happen for those bolts so. That saga is over you know what he did. He had a lot of extra pressure on himself. So whoever advised him to I mean I'm not saying not signing with Chicago Chicago was a bad move. Might have paid off financially and career wise it but also what it does is. With. Do what you did you better show up that you better play well better be good rather be good yeah you better not just have had one you know someone treated US the other day somebody knows a little more about. The player than we do said you know one good year with. And you know we'll see how that works announcing he won't play with better players the sometimes chemistry goes along with it. There's a lot of lot of factors at play but he better show up any better three minutes left. MacArthur resigned to this and five years 23 point 25 million. So what is that that's the report yet former four points or four million a year that effort Clarke MacArthur. What I mean you say that like for Clark later saying if you you just paid 200 grand He is he he's that are most goals for the Ottawa Senators. He has real in this a state that way because I think most Saber into Clarke MacArthur at five point three million. Yes Clarke MacArthur has a story his career turned out that we. Right especially getting traded from buffalo the arbitration situation signing in Toronto having it great here resigning having. Two mediocre years going to our law repeated they right after they lose Alfredsson right. Mean Billy Bobby Ryan but he was the guy if they sign right after losing Alfredsson now let's let's Clarke MacArthur. He had not only yes highlight goals last year he has highlight past passage between the legs saucer. Clarke MacArthur He's a parole. Agencies in pearl. He's he's a consistent I think he will start to be inconsistent. Sixty point guy you want you want to score at one point five goals in every year 55 to sixty point range fifty to sixty point you to bring in tech guy is he's the guy that deadline every team wants. A guy like Clarke MacArthur. Good for no good for him go to him for the job. It is there it is different. I mean you know he's a guy he's a guy that I played with guts and know very well. I love the guy who love his wife I'd love his family her family. And I am happy for he's a guy that. I don't think really got a fair shake here in buffalo to wrote I think he took a backseat to a lot of players at a time when he could have been. Give it more of an opportunity to play and yes traded to Atlanta he was traded to Atlanta and four. I worked for I don't remember what it was for. Commitment that remarkable but I'll put dog but any he had the arbitration case they're was awarded something to point something knowing any of their accidentally walked away from end up signing in and at one point three for like half of so. They walked what they case believe bodies rehearsal. Nicholas it to tell the story goes what do wedding gift that. your free from Atlanta that is again I think about it. Maybe got them unequal portions but our but it is interesting though it is its interest to you look at a guy and you see what he signed for. In auto lot and there are a lot of people that don't know all his career path in how he got in that there's a lot of adversity and I know people say. Others millions of dollars but there still uncertainty. Emotional. still human yes you know. The fear of the unknown is the most is the scariest thing in the world. And that guy who lived it it every single year especially when he was here he I mean there were moments in his career when he was here that I think he thought he was done. Well certainly not done and I am proud of and I'm happy for my lovely guy and I hope he's I hope he's successful core piece to the Ottawa Senators. All right status for today show. Right here at WGR.back tower number two years neighbor's hockey outline. Still time to the question away the Twitter right now. If you wanna buffalo winter classic all star game frozen four will choose which one. Oh would you want to have Pearson had canceled 1130 but right now We have the pleasure of spending more time is. At a report team name there who topic is too in fact it was Saturday talked all day long. Favorite player growing up so they are higher income. That which they have waited at that point guys have problem ahead I'll bite my tongue and this one's been the first time. But a big big element that come Monday this problem like golf tournament and start off the year about the bond he meant it adamant about a year. On popular figure there. Still could add to this day and it's one of those events that. Everybody comes seemed to come back for especially here at liberty goes back to this report those who wore. Out now you know it's. It's funny you say this bottle is probably one of the best chapters for alumni relations and the national heart I started initial on the table 5060 years ago. In Calgary has agreed to Montreal Chicago. Saint Louis has a decent when they're coming around yeah yeah but I firmly believe that buffalo is the best. As ours and things done. Whenever there's an event going on. Players disaster rules on where for whatever reason might be. You can always count and it's on usual that. To get a group of stick together the way we do. You know it's Tuesday it is adjustment moment is on the from the audience today but. You know it will talked it is core players or players that you know they're few years you know from in the mid ninety's early ninety's there's such counsel so that later talked in years. You say that two players in case there like struck last week now you know you guys are that tight you know we law. We we try to stay in contact like now it's it's it's a lot more difficult schedule their lives equipment but we still. Which the communities once and see things. Here we get a like Terry Mars and leave. Lose and lose you know we all relate to each other some golf Hanson Andrew. And it's just fogged in all to just of the lesson in impeccable. Funniest. Happen were a year now and which Europe to be responsible. It's a real good relationship with the artists ideally the mentality of the thought process when. Young guys like myself in mayors in Marty command mean what what guys. Also Ohio together in None the worse off one by one what these guys don't Nolan on all around paranoia draw more you guys and there are costs analysts seriously see like if you think he'll parole or me the old guys from the beginning of the franchise. Their kids look at those policies who are these guys that you probably don't even though we are. 60 well I'm sure some do what. If you don't come here a lot. And we'll change over the years it's like you have a high school reunion thirty years after you graduate from high school. There's a lot of guys going to be look at us or who is. In all and it's the same and hockey and I'm not going to be in two rain but. we sit back and look at the kids and and then we're going to introduce ourselves and well remember who we are but I'm sure most of the them unless you live here the chance to go and speak to that team. On. You know what it means dubious paper now and I think and make that. Stay the younger generation of pars today and then well went through that I did so and you're told and Michael never forget the one line in the in the years which is just remembers master list. And that's still meet today and think about often be excited to. If your career goals by pretty quickly and you're here today and you go on tomorrow. If you're lucky enough fuel last planned 121415. News. You should appreciate. Everything that's been done for you and how lucky that you are to live their lives that you live. A lot of kids are called upon on if chosen to make this. This great journey to the NHL or NFL. And you should never take for granted the good lord via. Work hard respect people and respect of people reporting tickets salary. Because without them you're and when someone comes to union wants us for whatever reason might me. To me I have no time I think that younger kids. Need to hear from some pluses to. What it's like to play and how he can prepare for retirement that's when it comes. A lot of people I think able. my two cents. Each year have a different alumni dressed eight years the team I once worn that sweater girl you know you're presenting me too by going out there and bust your arsenal there on the guys. You know both you guys you know the fans want to see plate full. You heard what if you are great in oil is not so now and I think that's look at. And you're right I mean I think here these they expect things. Ought to. There's only is but should know what it is it's the weather brought out that their Bravo and to an era where everything is handed to them now. He needs to start the song go talk to my agent can't play god bless and work that way about them because. He always had the guilt feeling pretty you know what what's wrong you know play human teammates and interest there. It's changed the whole game has changed completely it's a big big business that they. But the need to understand that you know whether you make ten million dollars a year when you make 50000 dollars a year. We all that this world the same. Not because you make more money and again next to you about it. And then once she learned to respect that you'll become much but assess. Appreciated absolutely he said because at some point the lights are obsolete and when they go all the forever. Pretty pretty armed robbery was. rivals line. Yeah can. You know even now there's going to be game time when no no. No no it's going to care at its foot and you know selfishly speaking it's great design. Well it's funny you say is years and years ago we always had an open practice during the Christmas holidays. And my the absence of falls. During the Christmas holidays so and Uga 171000 people in the building and want coloring Give some prizes. And go on the my card and it might have mentioned this to come back and progress. I hear this one guy and like several don't forget your friends on the way up as you meet him again on the way down. As apple on the and you know once it sponsors of this guy's right and my intention was not. Welcome back but I consign our announcements and what the maggots and back and if you to what was. What was retirement light and forget Finance all that stuff because that that's the most irrelevant part of the game I've talked and emotional side of walking away from the game we might have talked about this off the air before but just. Now you know I I. You know I believe that whether you like you the quote you just said if you whether you made for your retirement ten million dollars event are ten dollars in bank account there's still. A period of time where. You kind of feel like there's something missing in your life I mean. No matter how your or whatever but you are not. Who you used to be and not in the sense sub in the public guy. Well no in an effort to simply. Your reasoning for getting up in the morning. That is that is not easy whether it's it's sports Homeless you know what thirtieth in the conform to. When you do something you enjoy as an athlete and get paid fair amount of for one retirement strikes in the face. I remember when I retired. The summit was fine because no one's work. When training camp came in house and go anywhere that's when. It made the point where OK what do do it. You know you sit there and say okay I've had fourteen years real good time and roll. Would like to address them right. Some people wanna Mayan pension was not as. I wanted to do more than and then It struck me the hardest when I first sat in the stands watching hockey game. And I heard someone to me. You know why we missed you on there you're so good to watch them on and then the reason I'm saying this because when you play you come to the rink that were in the building. And by the time you leave the building. There's nobody in the You don't appreciate the impact you have. Two communities to kids families. On recurrence in the stands and listen to what speeds. That's what hit me the most. Yeah for me I'm I'm right now morally and it just sounds like that's kind of that's kind of a familiar theme that I'm getting this summer your fine because you're mentally your. Releasing everything anyway just summary you don't really have that game one. Doctor Bible is not on your mind it is one once training camp opens but. For me it was when the weather started to change in the leafs started change in the weather got cooler in the morning in your waking up and you're used to going in skating up every morning you're used to going in grabbing your garage going to the north town Sadr or your coming down here to work out mango stay here whatever year. Structure was. The weather started to change I mean. It was always an exciting time seasons starting in all its you know it's it's what we're most familiar with and then all of a sudden it's like there's like that gap when training camps going on from. And the Vargas to about when the season starts it was just slick and even games and it was just like come. That's why impression that's what you see a lot of players go into depression when it fires. They've gone from being in this the seven days a week with two minutes a month is a year to. Idling not the main things on the so there all. OK you know I'm depression how about showing up in no way. That every day you went to work when he guys had your back you could hurt and that witty guy and point 120 guys your locker rooms have a bad day like. This is any one of those players that your back out here in the real world. You go to when he guys that work it out of that date goes wrong case totals out of that always has got to go You should work there a terrible what to be here here. The view. On active. On the outside of the year had to think that. You. Players lip injury at an early age I mean pop them out early age in the end. It's not come off that mountain you're still young now. And gamble's Gillette and got to they drink out with a look at have to find something to and but not mean I have to. It was due respect meaning you you ever done. You can't compare. you know it doesn't. It's 80 at the sad part is that. A lot of players today for granite And that that's what disappoints me the malls. It's all about money. It's called well how much I'm gonna make as couples to. How much pleasure and I gave the that commitment to again stand often it happens. It's just. It's it's certainly it's sometimes to watch them play. And being paid that kind of money in an effort to and that's that's. Remember the rush used to get for a game oh my god you know what I'd be a I would I was always get in the room early. And it would get a two on them my underwear and I would sit there and I want payment for just a just. I have to get into ozone hand. Anybody assist you. Do you get nervous before again and so if someone says penalties in the wrong ball park. I was no different name emails I get nervous but the minute stepped foot in the east it was gone comfortable yeah that was I was home yeah. But prior to that. Only the public and yet the film lovers like someone's telling you when vacant 7 o'clock able case you put that to caged animals like to. Let me go let's do right now it's 540. Let's just get it over not only that you play a sport and a very very high speed. It's very intense. He inevitable if you careers command an inch two ships now. In all you go out there and if you don't think about things like that you're not human. You know what you're you're you're playing a sport that's demanding physically and emotionally. And in if you don't. Things before the game when you're preparing yourself as to what might happen that night I got arrested questioned mr. talking about thinking. And I have to imagine it's how many thoughts. Run through your mind of because I would have a million. Ever if I'm for the park okay and I know it's going to be. me that are here come out of the park. I'm thinking about every possible scenario elected. That the outcome how about mean. He can't rule out the bad ones right now I mean how many mean you have to think of Protecting yourself and eating the other guys in the park not caring about him. What you're gonna do with the parked if you get what you're gonna do win if you don't get the partner what he had to do to get knocked down what go greatly. And in all all it. Two strides and into what the way I I I salt and I played in college chase and someone to get the part. I L I never right now I'm always got into an angle somewhere it's where I could fail. Or I would never get hit some line and I only have so many options. To get the job So if he was coming from the right corner. I'm in action an economist left corners he has one week ago these guys turn when guys are getting it back then like it is now yeah. I either that that statistic at the bottom but it is important. You know which was on the brakes on did you ever have a guy what you're going. He's got the market is back turn where slide his hand down on my Garcia and Paul area ominous Polly pocket and that's optimistic yet but you know it's doable iron to a back down in all due respect. Passed off as the game was played as many fights and historic game there was a lot of respect and that's why. He's too many back injuries because not many guys from. It was physical yeah that was a lot of hits but they roam the majority were clean it. You get the couple idiots that no. You'd care to carrots one area but. The majority of the players played the game hard. But with respect. We have great respect for you appreciate it up by once again. But he got that at. longer I think we get another thirty not got on top. Again defied the Florida highest number fourteen great to be here and On Saturday kick off at 430. On the official voice of Buffalo Bills WGR Sports Radio 5:50 PM WGR 550 guys. A note on the sale of the Buffalo Bills that minute but first buffalo bills' tackle Marcel Darius speaking with the media for the first time it can't be addressed his off field issues was allegedly involved in drug arrest and a road racing incident.

We'll see Joseph disguise complete report on their races conversation with the media at WGR 550 dot com also running back CJ Spiller joint show opened the Bulldog discussed his contract situation I mean just focus on just trying to get ready to at my craft. It was though was that had come that they may they are offered. And I understand what they what they think about you being you know I America's Google over. Think it's a great. struck that it. Spiller cannot currently negotiate with the bill because he does not have an agent though the bills running back said he plans on finding one before the regular season on the ownership from the Associated Press. Is reporting that the bills ownership situation is about to take the next step. Bidders must submit formal bids that in the next two weeks college football Ohio State announcing that their quarterback Braxton Miller will be out for the season the browns announced their starter it will be at not Johnny Brian Hoyer will get the start. For the Cleveland Browns this year at least in week one baseball buys its faults of the red seven to do they play tonight and Coke coal field seven but in the major leagues Astros over the Yankees 74 tigers beat up on the take eleven innings. Brewers 621 over the blue jays beat the Mets 62 cardinals 54 winner over the reds. Brought it to the top and bottom of every hour is breaks at the college WGR Sports Radio 550. Are we are we're back sabres hockey allied air and delete your thanks two dealer they repair for. He huge while in law is somewhere. Over here Robert need to. Great stuff there really great stuff and you missed it go back into audio. That each year to and there's a real quick here. Trying to think where NH on NBC's. Tweeted out couple of these. What would look like a Major League Baseball teams had an sweaters and want to just go to Baltimore Orioles are pretty pretty sickened and it. Great absolutely great. The enemy if your baseball man. Hampshire if the Red Sox whites are nice to. Mean just looks really cool. Baseball teams putting on these quarters. Detroit surmise that tiger tigers ought to check error obviously unreal. When yankees are awesome right I mean. Iconic. In American sports. Cars no constraints though. I do like that it regrets. Hikers because it has that red wings look to right the white would the blacks leaves. I'll I'll tweet link. Ford and you can check all these you Oakland is awesome to not have a typical. X. That's the old Reggie Jackson married. Al Golden seals yes and the blue jays one's awesome too. Well they ego column I just read Twitter awake so you follow me on Twitter at capsule Lester. You can click on the link in check those things Seattle Mariners looks like the harper will masters. Nice. Couple other items. Because we're looking at him their cool it can't see them yet by Taiwanese yet there they're pretty sick pretty sick. In a good way with that a couple of signs all by the way speaking of Twitter or if you wanna. Call it your opinion why if the only one event. Come to buffalo. Hockey event that is whether the winter classic all star game frozen four. Or the world juniors which one would it be world juniors getting plenty of votes via Twitter. On capsule faster. Because of the amount of teams that come to the city the amount of games that are played. And so on so forth with yet. And the economic impact for the city many are also safety so very ice at the all star game. Because we haven't had what you're since 1978. The star power that would come to town. And I think the parties would be pretty cool calm all still be invited to parties and don't rate emulate the years that wasn't going to yours there's no question about that no problem coming fine. So and also do you review of the hockey line that day. Sponsored by eased him. Automotive. Now is that he had that bomb the other night he liked it. Now. Well as the humorous next all right I got the over it. That's what it. Pay it's wanted to comment that I think I'd like to the world junior comeback. And it kinda ties in the way it ready with Singh and I've been you know late currency and then. It seems like the guy You'd notice when guys are playing because of the money and what the world juniors but two weeks an incredible hockey kids are playing for their country it's not about. A paycheck singing. That's that's open I think would be great comeback. So you obviously in the last time. Aria yeah I don't we came out for like three days and I wish I'd be I'd come up for the whole week in our efforts. Weeks. Yet I was pretty you know if there are comeback. It is appropriate for 2008 team man and I think it's safe to say buffalo will be bidding. The music city USA expects. The strong created from this community for the event to come back here. And will be different this time he can host a rate year guys you have an arena the secondary Second site if you will. Together right next door so equipment movement tunnels things would have to happen win. You pared things down which new color. 2000 elected in Niagara did a great job and kudos to them for oh with a did that that it was great many to watch those games and then came down this site. Yeah that was really. Cool that time a year I think helps add to that event. Also you know the same time we're on the winter classic and New but it extends. Over into its old. Good point when a classic and it's received the most votes by way. What did she would world leaders world juniors. John thank you so much. Are your computer at good future put on the day it's. You know it just for people mentioned on Twitter. World juniors has received the most mentions. Would that sell. It's a pretty big part of it or how they get it back here though. they pass it around from year to year and they try to make it home base or something verdict controversies like yet it's open for the sole. Other cities. Have to pay a lot of these are open for what we around here that doesn't mean anything. Well done around here means nothing well. But other cities will compete. If you will to host the event now the the issue for. This city in this team. He's your display seen. York NHL team for quite some time. In an season night at a three day holiday break your. You're sending him away from this rank for a healthy period of time there was a game played. In between able to work that out in that probably worked on again off day. At the world junior has but for the most part you were putting your team. Out west or just you know out of their familiar cut sports but hey that's life right. You've got to deal. Trying to think about if players would. I mean your editor of the road trip anyway right yes it is or get it out of the way. And this year you know win over the team goes out west in October early on. This year heading out to San Jose. In Phoenix and west. Played those games. Should be you know that would get it early next. Year. You either show people how good you are or you just start off at the bottom of the barrel GAAP. Right those trips will typically the sabres it's always been out west. Late and unit margins a maker break trip more interest for teams to. what member of the Rangers last year. A west. And exactly governor outstanding performances and Jose. And the struggle started the first ten games of the year on the road in thing. Yes because they were there renovations to Madison square sort of like the same kind of thing if you think about it I mean you're forced what you're building for I'd say probably five game. Six games well what is your last time it was the day after Christmas. The team border flight for Calgary. It was head out west and played Calgary Edmonton. And believe came back. But I Calgary Edmonton and Winnipeg came back. Played a game. On an off day which was. Played in January 2. Around their money in January 1 when it in the off day and then it was back to the road. So wasn't exactly even though it worked on the role the whole time it wasn't the most friendly. Of schedules. hockey team time. But that's a price she paper for hosting. A prestigious. International event. And that's the last time US and it think about it USC had in 2011. There are getting again as a country. In 20187. Year gap. It is is Sweeney in Russia. Canada. You know it's it's gangbusters in Canada it was gangbusters here there's a border gangbusters here again. The going to be for USA hockey. Do you go back to the same place when he gets so infrequently. Do you go back to the same place again where you know it's a guarantee where you know it's a guarantee they did great. But if you're trying to grow the sport hockey across the country. Did you bring it elsewhere. I'd RO that is the challenge I think it. I think with hockey. You have to in my opinion. You stick to Wear your. Population of fans. Is located. Are located. And right here buffalo. Canada's right there. There's another attack for the Canada. Three hours of. The ninety. And or I mean there's just. Airports are accessible with Toronto Hamilton buffalo Niagara Falls. Rochester. It's the perfect setup. It's the perfect set up and not only wasn't so it wasn't just successful. Us it was unreal. Let's be let's be honest I came to that Canada US game here I know the Canada US game anywhere is going to be. Pretty unbelievable but right here it was. I've never seen an atmosphere that other than the classic which was just a different. Category of its own but I mean it was. It was unbelievable in the other games were incredible to they sort or thing. For the most part there yes it was it was sauce it's on my opinion. How is your New Year's Eve sweetening camp and they shoot out. Watched it the penalty box shootout it was incredible. Absolutely incredible. Actually I was stand there it may grow up would let me because he is present in the MVP awards what are the awards and that was one things doesn't target on the committee soul. Epic games so. Beaten higher in the pocket he turns to me says this is awesome isn't it might think that's it is. I mean everybody's on their feet. All these you know the Canadians who are rabid I mean rabbit. is as big of a fan you think you are pretty. You know I'll give it to our friends here at southern Ontario absolutely. Rabid. And what Milwaukee leading down to the book the book it was like you know the prime minister was walking down at all. You know he's Canadians and fans for international competition regarded Lindy and stand a box watching and they're all on their feet. cheer every rush was a 2012201111. It was absolutely knew it absolutely breathtaking. Absolutely breathtaking. It was great. Are we take a break come back. No players that signed deals. Hayes is found a team candidates not a team. to kind of break we'll play next here in the year. Are there. Here Brett back sabres a year on each year Sports Radio. 550. Kevin Sylvester Andrew Peters. Here we view our eight Kevin page is found home. Hope we can structure right. Kevin Hayes those whose Kevin Haiti's. Kevin Hayes is the younger brother case who now plays for the Florida Panthers who had played for the Chicago Blackhawks. Yemeni was a first round selection of the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010. Yemeni is the slated to play to outsiders into that mobile yet until last Friday. Decided deal the Chicago Blackhawks it is not about the size of the Chicago Blackhawks thus becoming a free to team in the NHL the bidding was spears. Fast and furious companies and cabinet is deciding to play for me. I still don't know. New York Rangers. The New York Rangers have reportedly side given David officially announcing yet but many many many reporting companies. Will now play for the New York Rangers but will he play for the New York Rangers up two weeks. A lot of at all. Surprised that he goes to a team that despite the Stanley By the New York Rangers active for him I thought but I thought it was all about. But roster depth and having an opportunity to play in middle average game developed to acquire the players were company news. What was his contract do we even know what she is the turner restrictions for a guy like that. Overseas as the US on the early entry level deal. So BA you know but he did get bonuses and so on and so forth like that obtain you know what keys for. You know Lisa these contracts. For college created to come out as reagents. Is. Public plane time of the so they can reach incentive bonuses are rookies are allowed to to give Max of three and a million. Much like it just game Edmonton that was one of the heels of David base salaries 900000 dollars on the rookie deal but how many. Incentives would be able to reach through time games played points as deeply in the power play all these things that they can guarantee you only talk but. You know made the he got to perform and make it happen for those bolts so. That saga is over you know what he did. He had a lot of extra pressure on himself. So whoever advised him to I mean I'm not saying not signing with Chicago Chicago was a bad move. Might have paid off financially and career wise it but also what it does is. With. Do what you did you better show up that you better play well better be good rather be good yeah you better not just have had one you know someone treated US the other day somebody knows a little more about. The player than we do said you know one good year with. And you know we'll see how that works announcing he won't play with better players the sometimes chemistry goes along with it. There's a lot of lot of factors at play but he better show up any better three minutes left. MacArthur resigned to this and five years 23 point 25 million. So what is that that's the report yet former four points or four million a year that effort Clarke MacArthur. What I mean you say that like for Clark later saying if you you just paid 200 grand He is he he's that are most goals for the Ottawa Senators. He has real in this a state that way because I think most Saber into Clarke MacArthur at five point three million. Yes Clarke MacArthur has a story his career turned out that we. Right especially getting traded from buffalo the arbitration situation signing in Toronto having it great here resigning having. Two mediocre years going to our law repeated they right after they lose Alfredsson right. Mean Billy Bobby Ryan but he was the guy if they sign right after losing Alfredsson now let's let's Clarke MacArthur. He had not only yes highlight goals last year he has highlight past passage between the legs saucer. Clarke MacArthur He's a parole. Agencies in pearl. He's he's a consistent I think he will start to be inconsistent. Sixty point guy you want you want to score at one point five goals in every year 55 to sixty point range fifty to sixty point you to bring in tech guy is he's the guy that deadline every team wants. A guy like Clarke MacArthur. Good for no good for him go to him for the job. It is there it is different. I mean you know he's a guy he's a guy that I played with guts and know very well. I love the guy who love his wife I'd love his family her family. And I am happy for he's a guy that. I don't think really got a fair shake here in buffalo to wrote I think he took a backseat to a lot of players at a time when he could have been. Give it more of an opportunity to play and yes traded to Atlanta he was traded to Atlanta and four. I worked for I don't remember what it was for. Commitment that remarkable but I'll put dog but any he had the arbitration case they're was awarded something to point something knowing any of their accidentally walked away from end up signing in and at one point three for like half of so. They walked what they case believe bodies rehearsal. Nicholas it to tell the story goes what do wedding gift that. your free from Atlanta that is again I think about it. Maybe got them unequal portions but our but it is interesting though it is its interest to you look at a guy and you see what he signed for. In auto lot and there are a lot of people that don't know all his career path in how he got in that there's a lot of adversity and I know people say. Others millions of dollars but there still uncertainty. Emotional. still human yes you know. The fear of the unknown is the most is the scariest thing in the world. And that guy who lived it it every single year especially when he was here he I mean there were moments in his career when he was here that I think he thought he was done. Well certainly not done and I am proud of and I'm happy for my lovely guy and I hope he's I hope he's successful core piece to the Ottawa Senators. All right status for today show. Right here at WGR.
