Once there was a -- who did not enjoy resolving we've got -- He didn't listen and fellow -- -- in how much money going cups and financial and they campaigns try to impose pops and the IDE three's mystic. Not figuratively literally right at -- -- report yet. And good luck in the stave off of that idiot child.

So to save some money I started taking the bus that sort of caused by my office. Stop talking you're embarrassing me that I mentioned it to my daughter's school bus there I just did the media Penney's same. -- There's an easier way to say to get a free rate quote go to -- -- dot com then buy online over the phone or accurate local Geico office. I started this being a few months ago where I find old stuff people are getting rid of and I determine and art projects or sell them to interior designers. Well before long I start getting requests. To define me desk to keep an eye out for one of these. So I started going to garage sales yard sales estate sales and every time there was this guy -- who -- beating me to the best stuff. The rain snow or shine that I was loading up as I was pulling up and he'd give me a friendly little wave. Well little does Tina Allen that is who -- myself now and you -- so does look out mr. He can come and business. Introducing the all new 2012 -- then present with a magical drive 36 miles per gallon and starting in only eighteen -- -- Experience. Quarterback's favorite president and black enough trying to -- requires many calls for Canada's final segment but I -- we wanted to bring this up but it's at. Derek rifle one had some comments Monday -- that they critical Lindy. Nobody too much for ratings. Pollen out guys in the media there's a rumbling of some off the record stuff. Any concerns are you worried about that is their problem between Lindy and some of the players that -- future you know off the record stuff is. I can't comment on that because I don't know if any of its true. Some folks use unnamed sources as a vehicle to get your comment on things when they might not quite be true. We were discussing off there couple times this season where. Somebody in in the medium not refer to anyone involved with tweet something that was just completely untrue and and you know -- microphone in front your face -- react to that well again it goes back to this. The Twitter world instant news world. That you have to take a step back and make sure things are accurate so I I. Not trying to be dismissive of the catch all bucket of well all the other off the record stuff because I don't I don't necessarily accept all of that is -- the question here direct question about. Eric's comments -- comments that I read in the Paper where something fact that. I'll paraphrase. I wish -- wouldn't have. Criticized him in the media or or others in the media. That is something that I guess if you would Google. Any. Manager any coach in any sport. Player critical media. You get. Hundreds. When that happens all the time so it's -- I don't think it's unique to the sabres won't execute me too. Sports in general. I'm not aware of there ever being a whole lot of this is over and over. The past history between the two. It's just something happens from time to time you know players. Quote unquote get called out in the media and and no one likes it I don't know I don't like it when a caller calls me answers of doing this to inflate my ego so no and no one likes to be criticized in public. And it's uncomfortable but no question is does it is is to a degree that it completely deteriorates -- relationship. Or undermines the team and I know and I'm not seen that. Well but violence done not just there by and large right now as far as you can see on a day to day basis -- -- relations with the players is fine. Yeah I'm not down there in a day to day basis I am not trying to use that as a cop out and just trying to get context. You know I I the other person that I think common it was Thomas manic. And it was something the fact that these -- treated me the same way since I've been here. And I think that's been interpreted. That hasn't been treated in the same way as when he won your own feet as he does. Of the family. I think everyone in our organization. Starting with me and always improve. Our leadership abilities and should continue through all I would guess that when he's coaching style and the players that he. Coached or are much different. Fifteen years ago and they are today and I think those areas are always and should always be open for criticism. Both external and internal. In the -- and in the quest to continually improve. Like our coaching staff to -- look inward and always ask themselves who are we shall we the best leaders we could be but we do to a team for the hockey operations in and certainly. Does not finished with me yet either and I need to improve my leadership abilities. Let's get as many calls we can hear -- last thing we that black hot you're on WGR go right ahead. I don't mr. black vs college who I -- basically thank you and your staff or something you did back in February or look at. Good friend of mine eight year old son he's kind of a middle child been eaten up middle child it. It was just our leaders some special form I was taken into the game so I I mean upon -- under the -- luck to you. And a speaking Beers has -- I want to name their names that you know there are. And anyways what they did a bit of a and you are so he people down -- -- in the period to -- players come out of the dressing room. NATO possible scenarios -- to become ever take pictures with them during the game in the open. And I hear all this stuff that people respect and -- you wouldn't you know that he calls -- and nothing could be further from the truth because -- speaker located government newspapers today. I -- Jospin and he had that you know that they have a flight he was absolutely smiling purity here the whole climate. I don't want to thank you and say that maybe other people popular talk about Igor just not because. You and yours that maybe that experience that -- it absolutely astonishing and I'd like to thank you because. You know you don't have to do that they didn't have to do that -- I didn't make a play -- and within ten minutes I had a problem not yours has been and within a couple of hours -- out of this everything's. I can't wait to -- -- good for the game and they didn't need to do anything -- apt to do anything and I'm not even at these and the programs that I that was going to a game.

Well thank you -- then and now my -- famous they Mac Tamara and she was my assistant in actual fact when I was so lawyer. It was my secretary and then she joined me in and when I went to the penguins and then when I went to TV station. She stayed behind and cut a Stanley Cup ring and I didn't. So I say it was good enough to to join me -- involved alone and moved up here. Last march so give all credit to say that. It's really cool here sorry that you're not a season ticket holder Todd but it will work and I just and it's maybe 1015 years from now. But now I appreciate that is it's. Life is short. And your business life is even shorter in and -- and and that's my staff sees opportunities to do things like that these are. These are things that I think I mean just as much is. Whether -- not make the playoffs that particular year. Their all important. You know reaching out where fans connect -- and from there and is it's also think part of the culture we talked about earlier in the culture change. And -- being available. And connected to our fans this is very very important. -- you next up here -- black and WGR go right ahead. Thanks for technical. What would say that I'm optimistic about. That people that we -- -- front office and the coach. I'm Mike my question. Or did you have a concern. That it possibly it took so long to identify. The movement from and it's. To better. -- out of -- you can comment on that you know I mean there's nobody to seat our players more -- Annandale that are coaches. I don't -- it if the coach is the lone guy that adds that all the little player from this position or it -- had been put on that as well thank you. I thank. Do have a concern that it took so long me Tyler's. Only played in. Many games to me she was rookie year in insurance plan and we're here -- News was injured a big chunk of it so. Now I don't necessarily have a concern as siren call I think this the decision to move. Tyler. Two senators try him there took place in -- about we've played -- -- That was was in the driven. No I think it's that kind of weird feeling tried. -- could command center. Plano has been tried -- -- so I think it was just more trying to find the right recipe and and you quite frankly. And it's really took off when he and -- -- put together and that'll -- knows that you know if if if hypothetically -- was the was the key part of that ingredient that just wouldn't happen until. That the plane was rated mobile -- It's go to Joseph your -- -- on WGR go right ahead. Hey what's up you do and actually my point was going to be about they're already -- and you know what Howard mentioned earlier so -- -- that -- So I guess my next point would be -- -- Italy. So why not. Mr. Bogle flies out to proper recognition this summer or Zach Parise. It needs mowing man to go along with some help volunteer my services and Oprah hopefully broke one of those guys -- encode them. Pretty positive that's what cursor gears -- miss those suffers from fiction and media couple players thanks again of the war.

Well that's you audience thank you for everything married on for favorite organization aspirant -- homers and out there all their championship teams all. Don't get made overnight then I heard that call for -- archery go to Canada and upset me because sometimes people think there you know we got an order. In and we should just you know win a championship right off the -- not. And it like in Pittsburgh there's a lot of failures over there before they won their top -- not -- wanted to thank you for everything and I'm I'm one of those patients fans so I know you guys who get it done. I appreciate it Scott -- and I know how. -- corolla is to tell people have been waiting 41 winners to be patient. We want to win badly Terry wants to win badly. This is the team he wanted to line paid cash for the team. He he sometimes criticized. Or dismissive -- -- always a fan. To that I would say. Isn't that you want. If it's Terry came into this and -- them around this strictly as a business. Don't think you'll be as much fun. I kind of -- sometimes when I hear that. -- is a fan. It dismissive way because I think that's exactly what you want in an owner for him to be. Fanatical -- -- team passion about this team care about this team and care about winning. I would have they are concerned there was a disconnect there. They lasting half -- you know -- CBA is up in September. You've said terror remains committed to -- you know -- in the -- here you mention yesterday in the newspaper article that you're still planning on being aggressive. The fact that there's no CBA as of mid September how does that affect trade stress free agency how does that affect the sabres offseason business plan. I can only speak to to the savers and. And not. And I think beyond that the CBA does dry until September and till that time were gonna. We're going to hit a free agency period and and it's going to be controlled by the rules of the currency BA and that's how we're gonna go forward. Beyond that it's it's a matter that is in the more than capable hands of the commissioner bill daily. We're very fortunate to have those two guys. To leave that. I exit pay I want early thank you guys this. This is this something that I've never done before. Really enjoyed getting to do they really enjoyed getting to take calls from the fans and just give me so much time and and -- you gonna do it again.

Take the calls like forward tons of emails to you and I know you copy me back the responses so I know the answer everything and we appreciate -- -- make yourself available on answering. Questions even if they weren't the answers we like to hear tied it. That thank you and and I say no we're probably gonna get a little bit more criticism for not doing any post season wrap up and help fans understand that that's not too. To build a wall between us and the fans that there is no wall between us and fans. So I think I'm sure we'll take some. Chris critiques in the media or or -- -- and that's fine but you know what the fans and it's never going to feel all but enough about -- Well now comes the fun part of the -- black post game show well this is the best of my best -- if you're thinking of joining hours later.
