The first person to correctly identifies which -- Was named this morning the -- red hot glare of the week wins it 25 dollar gift certificate from -- -- if you might know or you don't know you're. Almost those guys and so. Good luck to everybody listen on the council head coach was on that and our favorite after Lindsay right after him when he was he for the full hour -- was 8845. -- or something. Maybe and to call. So that's happening right now maybe he well Darcy last year at this time my friend Jake who lives out in Washington State was telling me weeks UC Brady McNabb. Went all the junior games out their loved them. Said. Just expect. Great things frustrate McNabb now he's hot on this -- under at least he was a couple months ago you've got him you've got. A couple names I forget schedule army -- of course these players haven't even been to Rochester yet. Are are you whisper as you see it in good or great shape with regard to the top and prosper. Facts on the well we're certainly getting stronger -- and that unions and herbal in Saunders on his way to Rochester so anyone that's eligible Google and Rochester in reserve. Capacities. And there are on there for their playoff series with Toronto. Four other officers. Totally unlike likely won't play but practiced with the team -- with a sense. Okay and -- Knee injury knee injury how's yours occurred -- now surgery. Three to five weeks. What's the forecast. With chemical timetable. Well I wanna try and I get him signed shortly get him over here this summer. Trying. Condense and spend as much time is under contract to the team in Finland. War next season. Have to work to give a military obligation to they do I don't believe he has yet fulfilled office. Is there a player in the league. Pastor present that UC him projecting to -- who does he remind you of when you see him. I -- Gretzky know why these weakness does it matter who aren't says there are the scouts commanders well he's going to be like this and and they're never like this there. -- themselves well in the June out -- who has talent. Yes very good score. Very good hands. Got an edge to. Some big kid a kid 63. Yeah he's. I'd like them as a player and I think he'll be good NHL play nine and leave it there talking about working through his contract in the measures how how complicated is the military obligation saying you -- work through it is there a chance he could beat North America next fall. Well ideally to get him sign -- get and training camp is is and you know actually give him. Get him signed him to. And development camp have spent time here in this -- training camp and go from there. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah quick question Darcy was that cash and someone of a disappointment. Mainly it's physical play. -- a couple of from. No I think I think that that is going to com was -- -- I I think Zach started his his NHL career. Like a lot of players do and Canada matter trying to feel things out trying to explore you know the give and take of of of the game. And and the other part that's act is -- has really was focused on was. He was focused on developing. Himself as a hockey player he he knew we could play the topside knew he could fight. And he wanted to wanted to develop the thing he has game -- -- to get him as high as possible up in the lineup and and I don't begrudge him that I think he'll be very importantly. The this summer boy at the draft first and have the summer and on restricted free agency again and it it's just it always sounds like such a good idea. Throwing throwing top dollar. Guys you've seen score against you. Did you learn any thing last summer -- it may be in in the form of -- -- note ar CNET that it expected a pin anything on him but. There there's a downside to it you've told us about it for many years. Yeah I I think that. I think maybe the biggest consideration. You have to take into account news is that nothing's -- back him. And so to the extent that you rewards. And this is not a vote wouldn't wouldn't it doesn't matter who the players. To the extent that you rewards them. And that that ends up in your dressing room. And sell all their needs to be an understanding -- the rest of the players that this is okay this works. In order to avoid things like jealousy to avoid things like -- they reward in this guy's not this guy or otherwise not be. And and and those things are real and you need to waive him and consider them in and with respect to all the other players. Can Leno still work out. Yes yeah -- what has going for -- is it is -- very competitive person. And he's fearless player and he can hold on to -- And so the fit maybe was not maybe why isn't ideal why isn't as good as we thought it could be or he could be. Buy it in the and he's highly competitive guy that loves to play in pressure situations. And just. You know the finish wasn't there with him more or or on me so we've got some work to do well ultimately he end up being a winner on your team I think -- I think so more so -- sentiment. You know I think one of the things that. Going into the trade deadline and and even into the draft in the offseason. I would like to be in a position where we can and strengthen our center position. I think it's an important place that you know -- if it stays in the middle which looks right now like he will and -- is in the medal. Losing cost dead. You know it's an area where we knew we want. Not just sentiment but even the sentiment was sides whether it's on the defense side -- office. How about the the goal timing. Ryan Miller worked it out -- tough game or two in the very end of the season but certainly got his game back toward the end IE again at the -- me every year and maybe I'm just way off but I got frustrated again that that. The back up basically might not even need to dress for games. It seems that you could get a benefit out of having him come in once in -- there's not much of a drop off statistically there's none almost. So on are you happy with how much and Roth played and you're tandem. Going forward. I am not part of part of you know Ryan plane the way he played at the end was. History and why you pay him and one he has as a goaltender and how good he can be and how good ideas and and and you have to ride that horse. And you've got to get the points in the schedule allowed us to play him as many games down the stretch and it may well have been frustrated for yours he handle it very professionally awfully negative test it was Sweden in the world he's over there with. Sweden in the world championships that. That that's that's his job when he comes in any. -- played very well but in the end it was up to grind against the ports did you feel like he hit any kind of a wall physically because of how much hockey he played in February -- march I don't know that he had a wall I guess you could point to a couple of games which he pointed to as well where he was a little bit off whether or not that was -- -- fact largest one of those. Do you have any questions for us. Know keep up the good work I appreciate it thanks for coming.
