In 1998. I I do like the way they did it for the organization. But I like the way Peyton Manning has handled it more. As that player because I think that. He -- made it difficult on -- -- you know walked -- you know angry he all the tape -- put up a -- Because nobody would question it don't know because he had grounds to do it. I think. -- -- -- -- -- And I don't mean financially I mean the city the organization people everybody all the inning. I you know for their future they they they oldest guy. Because he could easily you know said -- that franchise it was a joke but. And he even brought it to a level where it's you know one of the top of the game and he's stepping aside the way he did. Realizing. He knows he knows withhold vote knowing bringing in -- you know to replace them. It's it's classy classy move on his part and you know it you may want to look at it as the colts to kind of as sneaky thing to do. But I think by the sound of the great communication between the two they both understand that and Morton anything. I would bet that Peyton Manning is is willing and and doing this because the people of Indianapolis probably more than than the now. Ownership of obstacles that whole thing went about as well as I think it yeah I mean there was a little slow week of the Super Bowl there was some -- being. That went on between he and the owner. But they patched that up and can't move in and I think come you can't ever be easy to move on from a player of that caliber I respect the colts to win it I. Agree with what you're saying about how Manning handled it it just just what do what do thing. Look at your social there was Mats -- Toronto when they -- the movement no trade no I'm not gonna you're gonna finish the year ending. At that road baker treated him at that point got something so substantial set that hockey team up that organization up and you know they probably wouldn't be in the position they are right now. But it could have at least one -- here and won't willing to note that -- Thinking more of Mets on -- -- at the Toronto Maple Leafs and their and their organization in the fan base. More that get a month off you put that little sticky situation so. Do you ever regret not. Playing only for the sabres. Com. Yeah I guess the annoyed I guess you do. But at that time it was something I thought it was it was good on their part giving them that opportunity and it's you know knowing it was pretty much coming to the end. That you're an opportunity to possibly go win it this wasn't as if they didn't. Asked me in I didn't have any type of import and it it was you know there was definitely communication. And where they sent me -- -- at that time is it was a good opportunities any place to go and have a chance when. So. No no I I don't. You know. Is your heart your home and everything is still here you know you go somewhere else play for -- it's it's not a big you know I think at the time it'll it might seem. But -- Thomas is is is up. Of more. It's a better comparison problem Manning no offense to -- -- hall of fame caliber players. I'll bet I've you know I beat -- out of trying to keep moving here that's an uncomfortable point but all all the same. I think no matter whether it's you whether it's storm and -- When when they believe what I like you go to Ottawa. But you're you're robbery you know I -- I have always gonna have you -- -- -- here with the decision to me in the summer if you know does that hurt -- or does it it does is it worse. Five all of a sudden you finish of the year. And in your mind they can maybe you're gonna play some or and then teams and no we're not resign that would have been comfortable -- know there are where -- that would not play -- cool to do the point I wanna make bill is like right now colts fans will will feel bad and maybe when Manning. Puts on a Miami uniform they'll feel bad. But ultimately they got fourteen years like we got how many years on you we got all these great years ought to permit I don't. I don't remember Thorman played for the dolphins I don't remember you played Ottawa you'll hear the fans loved yet. And that hit like and a story like it's it's not even an afterthought that you guys last year went somewhere else for a season or whatever it's just completely forgotten about. But I've been -- though they'll be and -- obviously the legacy left there but it this cute penguin. And establish something there like Peyton did then. Hole while the spot for him. I mean he sounds -- like I would look I don't I called radler that drives this guy now you can lead to. Great now not even being pitched yet right knowing that that's where I'm gonna go ideas to step in for one of the greatest players -- -- game you know they don't him. Marine -- Wolf is very few of a second handle that pressure job it'll be really proceed to see. They're -- plus yeah yeah -- it is and it it might be too much for. You don't know now you don't argue he probably would have thought the perfect scenario is to keep the there get this kid in there let him mentor emperor you know a couple of years. But you know saying today -- that's going to be a few years before that teams back to the the notion to be there in the playoffs or competitive. So hey you know -- gonna look at him in his eyes a lot of win. I've done what they can do here we've won we've built this team set it up okay now maybe it's time to move on him and hopefully win another championship. Fort Collins rob -- here for Niagara better sabres and hurricanes coming up about three hours or so from now are right out about hockey. We've got a race I mean Monday hurt you know having a chance to have to keep Winnipeg from picking up a couple points idea stings by. You think a lot more if they let one loss become two or three something I think they can ill afford at this point is any kind of streak of losses. You're exactly right and and I look at it the last game they played so well that road trip. Yes there was times that you know there kind of under -- him and teams have them locked down and a lot of -- -- they found a way to get through -- bound to hit it up with the points. -- little disappointing obviously in the Winnipeg in the the magnitude of that game. You know that it does seem like it at points where maybe they didn't have -- jumper this same intensity obviously that would depicted. You know bowl teams had to understood you know what was at stake here. When you start losing that game and alternates the only considering a four point game that's that hurt hard but the big thing is you've got these teams are going on the road. -- -- -- You know you still have to be concerned about what you got. At least seven more games against that team rate there with you to get strongly got my target if you got Carolina -- night in Washington. All these teams Florida Florida that you need to win. And maybe take that as a lesson. You know you gotta be 100% ready you gotta be at the point where you're gonna see how desperate teams are and I think they got a real good notes. Of how desperate teams are right now. Right is that they played when -- -- -- and I was so yeah Iowa and then you are definitely things that they've warned that it would receivers down it just looked like and you know by the third period they got him in their -- -- in the turnovers created then in the number of shots that are given out. You know you're not you're not gonna win like that and I and I think that you know having this little bit of time to come home here regroup get a get to the practice in the in between. You'll get yourself pregnant repair man can these are going to be tough gave Carolina come up with Google last night playing well there they're desperate. They're playing hard and they got an experienced team over there that they're not just gonna pack it in. Yup ponson tomorrow we just talked about you know going there is you have not been back in that building since the old Ryan Miller incident. In -- handled them pretty much physically you know. The two times they've been here since you know I I don't mean they stood up to -- they play -- game -- and those claims are probably the two most physical games he's seen over the first student. The third one Boston was in here that game was like it you can ticket and nap on yesterday typically. And ask them they wanna just something that wanna you know at some point this this Bruin team is gonna wake up and it's going to be don't want those days you know. And then in Ottawa on Saturday these this that really big week for them so they can now. You know to have their heads hanging from that when the big game because he's through injury now or are huge. Monday stings a lot less in my opinion with the results of last night's games you had three teams right around him in the race and only Washington got a point you know -- -- point. And you know -- -- Toronto lost and Tampa lost and so you know for another day anyway they didn't. Drop in the standings behind anybody else why those inner conference games are going to be so important and they got a lot of them coming that was -- what. What do you think total robbery here for standards and by the way sabres and hurricanes. Coming up tonight on WGR. Miller until I get asked to the Leicester four times we've spoken about Miller and rest and I guess -- said today. That and Roth at some point here is gonna play this story not a schedule. And you know Tzipi sticks to -- Or if you don't circumstances I eat -- getting in a groove that losing a couple one ever change your mind. How do you think he told -- I think he's doing well he looks pretty darn sharp level trip even in the Olympic game the other night he still looked very sharp. You had just missed some time this year and -- you look at it in India and been out there and he hasn't had the play every game early in the season. -- Jonas was getting a good opportunity so. I would say about is in the rough yeah you wanna say got a schedule you -- -- you know kind of forecast though what teams you might. Tried playing Jonas in but I would go to Ryan Miller every morning it's day. -- -- he's as fine then I'm going with them if it gets the point where you might be looking in and in the game where. You know you're up or down and in you know you you've got time may -- home don't give a little rest. Do it but I I think that today he's gonna be your ticket and if he can continue to play. I would be judging your -- what he says and feels and you know -- -- you listen to India and obviously these two connected communication. That they got they -- that reality stand. But I did it Ryan is kind of guys competitor he can he can handle these games can always for the past. Yeah now we talk about when he gets through a certain point you go to gas Begin work. It's -- you know it's gonna at a point here it could be even right now where adrenaline and emotion is gonna carry it. Up along ways I only worry about him. As it pertains to practice his -- he always makes a point about being able to do his work in practice and when he's playing this much. He really can't afford physically to do that and you know you just you -- to be at its best and I think it's hard to stay your pressed if you can't. Hold the craft the way and I think he in particular. Creature of habit with the mental thing and he likes to do it the way he feels like he needs to -- you know to beam so that it's harder to do pizza played a plane. I know you're right there but there's gonna be opportunity -- is going to be opportunity you you know in between that tonight Illinois. For him to practice instead of taking that hour of dedicating it to exactly what you want to pick the half hour now you know twenty minutes in this. You know get it get it -- where you need it in and finding that twenty minutes half an hour we didn't do it doesn't hit it gets dicier though belonged to the the more teams to keep him off the -- there. To stick and Rafa when he has an integrated port through months well we only play article is -- it -- -- quite a period yeah. -- be so you're gonna look at a guy you know it it might not even been that fairness to the kid. -- You know you're a plate right here tonight than that on some -- Jonas and in Boston throwing. Back to back situation. Might make sense it might if you're looking into -- I could see Roth wanted to keep Miller out of that cold in that Boston could be just him you know it. Just in case right. If you're not playing the -- if you talk to the media with the Israelis won't know I like. That might make sense EUI. And other sensible being critical factors among the adopted some but. Buffett for Alvin I would take the hit it is not here right -- Smart. It though if you're looking at the long view here. Do you agree that you deal Saturday when he got to play again right and get that you don't play till Monday again right. -- Yet thomas' name world like the chances -- journey -- -- Like there are times he goes through stretches ever year winner. The goals aren't there but you just see the chance he's neglect while -- could have -- he just would barely a couple of these. This is nothing happened there. Yeah but. I think that when you're watching -- still working. I want I think that he's working hard these -- I want to think that I. I do to put on that Monday Monday was the first time really hit it just got like. Just not that happened between you I I wanna before he sat there and acidity or Thomas your your you need to do more. I'd I'd have to know that it is the 100% healthy. You know now. There -- -- that question is does the right questions because there's been periods where else. He has had a -- couldn't finish the game senators obviously something that. Is either nagging him bothering if no 100% I don't know and then to sit and say hey dude you're not doing what you're supposed to do. Well maybe there's a reason for an airline apathetic and have to find out first you know if that was spared you know and and and obviously to watching it on TV is one thing when you can watch it in person and you could see body language away from the pocket god the bench but to tell if there's some physically -- get a little better read of you know it is the guy into the game isn't just floating you know doing it -- frustration. You don't see that on TV you'll see that when you're standing there watching -- person so. You know I think it I would. In in his case watch it tonight if you're here I'm watching. To see you always is that is that Thomas. Or is there something. We're running out of time I wanted to ask you though before we we we had missed. Back to Winnipeg -- ruff talked about their crowd after the game it came through watching the game on TV capture in the building it had to -- just not so. Super passion. And it's kind of the story this building all year how quiet it's been. And I wonder Ehrlich if you could just talk about the ball is that you get as a player playing in your home building when it's like off the charts. Where did you go to a place like when it make you you know it's like your dream to play -- -- to hold. Totally different atmosphere. Using the people in the building here excited they're -- -- OK it's a starving its second season. Well those people in those kind of places there like that all the time you know they're happy to have -- back they're excited they're -- another factor you know. And not that we're not in Canada you know fans that are -- you know for their -- it's a little different sometimes. You know it it I'm not start a love definitive fans here when they're when they're on the they're going on in the team's going good. I think a lot of the times here when the teams going in it that he would definitely show the respect in the in the note that you know there they're happy with things when there. I'm happy they're not they're going to be quiet. So I think that. You know and in the case in Winnipeg gather they're just excited to have it back so there jacked up will be the same. Five years from now I'll tell it's not say when you go to Toronto in order that they met the standard will it would -- that you met that you met its medical front it really badly did it and it might. I'll see you build an -- and their kids back -- so. -- -- I think that that the players themselves have to earn. That respect from the fans that. The way the period -- respect is is the noise they make the excitement they create but it's up to the individuals on the ice to create that environment create that excitement for them to get into it.
