Mike she'll open the Bulldog. Well Greg gets all Hamilton on the line one one small point I'd call a small point about the sabres. That I have just come to really. Dislike is this idea that Darcy or gears should have traded Paul gloss that earlier. For what. If you're if you're telling me that the trade would have been nice. Of course. Nor would disagree with -- Yes you're right what should they have been able to trade Paul Boston for another player. Okay. Maybe there was a way to trade him for. Another senator that -- could score to trade him for someone like Johnson I don't know. You can always you can always wonder. I asked Rick here in February I think it was if he wishes he'd made a trade sooner and he said yes it's even easy for him to say. You know. But. To me is not good enough to say I don't care if you didn't get a first round pick you could have saved this season. It was pretty obvious by Election Day that this team was not a Stanley Cup team. And that's what this is about and if you're gonna criticize the cool -- one hand for. What ever. In the on the other end. This the -- dead. Situation as it played out. Is why you'd want it to play out if you were thinking about the Stanley Cup it would not be to trade him for some offense. And and whatever you'd be giving up in him. Earlier. So that you can get in the first round it would be about. Getting the most you can get and month did -- or not do that that -- article like him I'm just telling you that he not get the most he could possibly have gotten do you think. He could have gotten a first round pick for cross that never did I ever think that because of so on to me that's a win all the way around yup that should have a lot of things when they didn't that's easy to say and there's some truth to it but. And I don't like the point that Austin to have been traded for less. Earlier at least people who say that give you that it wouldn't have been for as -- Are right here is Paul Hamilton high ball. Good we heard the entirety of Ryan Miller's comments we've heard Roy -- -- -- things. What do you being there was the most uninteresting sound of the day. All -- think Ryan Miller going through this and you know spoke he did. Great blame for himself or another many fans who thinks he never got out there and he understands it game wasn't where should about it and he -- so it made -- -- -- that -- that. He was a big reason why you voted me out it is game wasn't where should early in the -- And and you know he knows that but he also knows there's more to it and yet. He would gain more and there he understands that it took too long to get thirteen to thirteen now. Where you know noted they can play at all automatically not peace in their thinking about it and really there is no excuse for that. You know it it really caught in games and cost them their playoff spot. I think one thing I was relieved to hear it there are. Injured were brought them out. But I don't you aren't a part maybe twelve players today and I didn't hear one of them so parent. -- injuries that that's the reason they're not in the playoffs I think. You know they're at gunpoint to understand that injuries played a part in -- prepared ultimately if he goes deeper than that. And it goes deeper that here you are three point playoff spot. And there are. Many many game to not want a double figure games where art and in the locker thought that. About what you really little point there later really -- two point area attic your hand people. And they're getting way too many of those and I I don't think you can explain all that -- -- injuries. All I would think that what Derek Roy said about Roth. Pointing out that he doesn't appreciate rough criticizing players publicly like he does. Would qualify as the most controversial. Remark of the day would you agree and what did you make it. Yeah that and you know that -- did criticize the war of the team after the Philadelphia game and you know the biggest game of the year in there they've recorded gonna -- -- disappointing him. There were responded and outback he didn't think that they should be warning finger. You know operation. You know thinking as a team and not point fingers and and that type of things so. It's something that I wasn't expecting to hear it it's something about it -- from inside the locker room and outside. Eight and gaining momentum for awhile that players produced getting fired up the constant factoring -- and the other can't be amber in the media fire up the -- but anybody can go both ways to you know. If we don't want screaming match all the time you know one and -- in the media. You play a little bit better and and he won't be on top the all the time and you know that kind of the way I look at the proper etiquette it's a frequent target. I I wondered out loud stay on the warning showing that more when I thought our -- that. You know these are watching I'm going to be -- Thomas -- because I have questions in my mind. I'm wondering how much of this act that he didn't kill -- and you drop -- erupted it is great. He's pretty round behind closed doors he's remember on the parent he criticizes him in the media. And you know I even -- radio station you know pot bat I was -- -- Hispanic -- went -- without. I thought to myself it's Thomas Barrett finally get the what we saw the last stop but even. When we saw 41 point 237 games and then. It took two months for level that -- pattern and you know coming into the year 2000 well open. Static and no I'm used to it you your -- comments about it he refused. The blame rock and I think if it was that bad that in effect it is way. And he was you know to a point where he -- set out -- united that the bank. I did ask him if he'd like to be traded if he'd like out of the situation he was emphatic we should absolutely not. Family log in here I like it here I'm like playing here I like playing for this team took her away -- be treated. You know and and and basically as Eric Thomas and a lot producer. I deserved to be yelled out I mean -- and I know we got -- I didn't play well understood why would deliberately I should've played better so he you know he well. I'm panic and to be harder and so I think in a lot of parents could ever want. That's for sure I wonder just how low. How similar -- is. Away from the cameras and away from your microphone. Then he is. Otherwise because he has consistently. If if Rauf were to say the worst things about -- publicly which he isn't doing that it missed it sounds to me like -- just agree with that. And I just wonder how how much of if if the premise above all this series that -- is early critical or very critical as a coach. -- -- much of it than it takes to heart it's a it's a topic we've been over before Paul did he say anything to vexing thing about being injured. That there were. And the minor injuries along the way but he goes numbers not thing. That we interfere with implying ignorant nothing that you talk because it had nothing to do with the way you want to thank you essentially get hurt every year and Perry campaign but he said that. I can't you certainly -- last line. Never one to make excuses manic. Exactly and he went Eric I mean we knew it when he got hit. Bought it we knew we had a knack injury and went all in a annually at a -- injury and I think he got over all injury a member of the one and in Austin app that by what chuck. And many came back early I'm not 1 who I am already knew we want he he's a gamer. That's why can't it boggles my mind that these. It -- since faction of fans who just think he's lazy and doesn't care. At all and I couldn't be murder. You can criticize this way and you can say he wasn't bear down the stretch. But the -- lit he's lazy and doesn't care it just so it's it's not like okay I'm. He did he cares too much I look and -- too much. Saying he doesn't -- it's not like. All right I know you -- you know I've talked and you'll be in the with me tomorrow -- -- can get into some more things more in -- As far as today goes so go in and excuse me as far as today goes the -- in the short time we have. Be more if I were stumbling through this. Just want to what more can you tell us little little moment surges what's memorable about today as things close up for the year. Audio can actually like to remain a buffalo sabre that. And so what got a lineup that -- ball in in somewhat the same -- one not respect one restricted bad. They're two guys that have trouble keeping themselves healthy. And in any such a separate -- and -- calendar year I can't earning an emotional team a chance. So you know I think if you want to play it's gonna after being in Europe and Brad late in the same spot. And what it came out and you know you bring a lot to the table I just wonder the sabres are distancing themselves we don't and -- -- In -- NEC that he's played here and not give them -- qualifying offer and that when a horse. You know all the people from -- -- -- storm's name -- here at another awful lot about it you don't wanna bet. You know I adopting to do with it like they're happier that way to improve this year -- player. As as the year's gone on -- with a good shut down person. Player back. -- -- of the injuries and does not being ready to play. More than sixty games and here are have to wonder pets can be evaluated. Florida gave him a qualifying offer. All I look forward to seeing you tomorrow we'll talk some playoffs to. Philadelphia Pittsburgh. Watch some of that probably Vancouver LA if I can stay up it's nice. Right now.
