    WGR. Sports Radio fifty. He had not caught it number one cheek carried a parking lot our our yet I know and do which is always a horrible. report just I think we got to Arctic football all ball. No tradition and everything else. And it's time that you should show also requires more can be a laughing stock unit can changer right now it's not how we you know. I think a lot of players they'll recover from. Programs they want all the time about You know Florida or they don't let the and he keep from you know you are the biggest all of our. They keep up the pressure. Always have a right. A lot that the underdog winner and strike that they're here. But it isn't exactly guy used the winning and I think he the pressure from Some are this morning getting in on the discussion about Doug Maroney. We'll talk more about what Joseph chill and talk to you stopping practice just today there was a fight yelled that the team that run a wind sprint. Would you make of all of that. And it's a continuation of our discussion from a couple of weeks ago we said he seems different he seems different has seemed different since day one of training camp. Is he feeling pressure is feeling pressure to win. And to the larger issue the drought playoff drought. Do you think dug Doug Whaley should. Be caring around the extra weight of the playoff drought that's our web ball 8030550. To call us on at 888550 to prepare to Whipple. been pretty consistent about two thirds this time 64%. Think. Yes it matters they should care and the weight of the playoff their call us and we'll talk to join a moment we'll take your calls to an eight at 30550. Two things one met through that battery. It's on resentment out of battery no dire My out as everybody knows it was drive Cuomo and former life violent Islamist I wanna play something from the update will Lawler are a couple of jobs going here. Around the question is how long you have the starters out there on Saturday. Because before if I say something and they shouldn't be out there that long enough if I keep mass there short and it should be out there longer assume. We'll put him out there for as long as you know we as coaches that think the players need to be out. Okay quickly on this you dummy from onto While the conversation today is about mental toughness. He's doing this for discipline he wants his team to be told her winning culture multi culture mental toughness idea. If you think I'm Macon some but not enough and you tell me and I make a big deal out of it but. It is weird. Why is the coach of a football team concerned about what people will say about. How long he played his starters in the pre season if he says the first half. And that he plays them longer is he worried about being criticized for that if he says into the is the second half and then doesn't. The says I don't know if you know I do this and you guys are gonna say. Why does he care. To this is it possible at some point when he got hired. Someone said hey listen just be careful what you say that the media because it could come back to just basically. Drag you down for good like the whole Chan Gailey will be a government report it was Fred return like dog just be careful because something that you say. Might just latch you for ever Nathaniel Hackett says Enron Spiller to acute than we expect to see a lot of Spiller and we didn't get as much Spiller who thought this is Daniel Hackett run screaming out of the coach's box in the press box when they beat Carolina. It's And you know it it's maybe someone got them and said. To be mindful of what he says maybe thought you know I got burned last year he felt the media we went crazy about Mario Williams what injury wire to tell why did he get a second opinion. So maybe he became like OK you know lot. Everything is second guessed this just in and an affiliate coach everything is second guessed so I'm gonna not say anything of consequence this year. Mean is it that is it a big secret to say how long each is gonna play in a pre season. We're hitting coach quarter. I was in that we can all discuss. Quarters to longer quarters through short quarters just right territory about it comes with the job that I coached Eumig lots of decisions and they all get discussed and analyzed. I don't know I. Maybe because he was just you know stuff came back last year. From stuff that he said Jeremy through decided you know what would go on the other direction. And understanding about injuries about playing time nothing. That any ideas I don't Joseph you have any ideas. Remembering jokes about. Com. It's a continuation of where we were a couple of weeks ago about dug around like tying in yesterday's blow up two he has seem different since day one of camp and even yesterday again. Playing time well I say he's getting this you know some will say it's too it's not enough playing time someone else will say it's too much playing time. So we're trying to figure out what's the big deal why you know why the secret why the non answers what that's going on. Well I think he's always been someone who is very conscientious. What. He says in the media and and the ramifications. Of that in. Outside of those press conferences. I think she's always kind of it kind of went into Pratt stopper is A very. Good idea a calculated idea of what Now we've just seen him kind of total a little and go back into his shell and and really cannot really go about. Not really go about answering that question because it's in the water pigeonhole themselves into something and I mean if there he said we're gonna we're gonna try and get them happen. And may be a little bit in the third quarter. But that's not that we don't just I mean that's. That would be perfect reply I'd I'd I'd be part of that movement that way where at very go into it from. And if let's say guilty the result is really happy with double play that first And they have a couple of touchdown drive in the and he just really love the way to look at feel like Burke and amber. And today. I know in that respect. Then I don't think everyone would have a problem with that I think I think it's just a matter of trying to. Calculate exactly what is he saying in those acts and I think that's that's or inevitably. Not an issue but I think that's sort kinda happened that this thank you popping up. Think he went ballistic yesterday. I mean that the in thing integrity of the game Joseph I don't think there are training camp fights all over the league. I don't think anybody feels I don't that the integrity of the game is being ruined and this is a non factor when the games actually count nobody fights in the regular season it's a byproduct of training camp so why the big explosion. Well better repeatedly. And I think it was the perfect storm of a few different I mean blood. The practice Lotus. Close to the public. And he he could go out of that sort of tirade. Secondly it was a very very creaky camp near the end where there it. There were a lot of guys who were a little bit I'm added because they were bare at practice for so many days that you know they're when he first day. Field. And not a good I mean. Last year there was I think eighteen practice is in total but. Last year it only lasted around like three weeks so 33 and half weeks this year. They have been away from home Mike D'Antoni would old tackle for a whole game yet the only time they've got home woods. They go fly out to who. One time and to go fly out for. That's literally the only time they've been held and so the fact that they've been away from home And for over a month now and are still way. I think that played into it well so I think yesterday was just a kind of a big. A big pyramid where a lot of at a they have been and it it it just exploded right right at the right now. Joseph us on the AT&T hotline if you'd like to get in and comment on our discussion or if you have a question for Joseph. On the pre season on camp the game tomorrow. Full lines are open you can get in now 8030550. the top for number 808550. To 550. There was one of the honest about our own now it is my mind if I remember Joseph I would get back to it. So can't it is not done completely they've got walk against that as you mentioned in your column is staying there tonight and I guess tomorrow night and that'll come into the game Saturday. What was the that's the benefit of camp like how much you think camp accomplished is there anything that stood out to you in terms of hey this is the top positive that came out of five weeks at training. I think it was just keeping everyone. In one place one in and trying to build camaraderie I think that's really the biggest thing that. Maybe benefit from training camp because I remember. Last year about. When they're built and a drop nugget that they want change things up the training camp then people start to wonder whether immediate thing just picture everything like that. It was actually just that wanting it'd be there earlier and be there later and in doing so they have been there earlier than that anyway well there. Being there as late as anyone else because of the hole and they're partially but the but it it all played in Q. broad kind of thinking about. Kind of controlling. What's going on with his team and making sure that. There are doing the right things that they need to be doing while. Oh while trying to prepare for the regular season and try to instill that in them before the regular season get their because. You can't you can't really make. A routine into a routine in a matter of two and a half three week. He can do it over the course of haunts them and or you start getting into. Being able try and put yourself in the right spot at each and every day but I don't change once you get back home anyway because that tried the opening routine. I think it was really just a matter of trying to trying to build camaraderie and I think that was that the goal of At this camp. As you look back I don't know you read you can read Joe's column it WGR 550 doc Tommy got to camp awards notes and one of the things I wanted to ask you about. Player whose stock. Rose the most players stock fell the most in camp who would you bring up. Well I think that could go to Lyon where the flying up the dep chair orbit sector of the year and my annual training camp awards. Sean tell Anderson because what we came into training yeah. It both for the Canadian that shot well Anderson would be. What would be playing with the first team at left tackle. It more of OK well where is Anderson benefit and and it's even going to make the roster like he just the practice squad. There aren't there are some thought that it was According Glen and your career and player squad and maybe even creek or step by. Shot well Anderson has come into camp and shown that he has been one of their top fired off a lot. So much better than the other rookie offensive tackle And he has been. And absolute. An absolute high point for the team at this point. He had then spectacular. But he's vastly outperformed the stretch slot. And if he's gonna probably and it started for the team at a time I will be able around that's a pretty big that's a pretty big leap from. Potentially. Cut in out of practice squad Q. Hey you're that guy is probably gonna start further off are so it stuck that way out that respect knock down an olive branch I mean there's been dropped. I mean it could be it can be tied between Q hello that was. Because it's guys have really disappointed for different reasons Ellen more about. I think it's it's with him the fact that he didn't show up. hall ordered at least contact the team. As to why he didn't show up the voluntary workout and and then when he did show up It is that training camp it without shape it and they needed Q and you need to. a couple of days before it passed as conditioning test missed a couple of they practiced yet even gotten out of the depth of well at the depth chart is still playing with a thirteen. The third unit and I think Alan Branch is stuck down I think cut even though the extension this copy it and that there'll be that. You've been one of he had been. Off the entire camp for an interception return. In yet and have the their relationship with a wide receivers that on the field but you'd like to be it been like there always been this communicating. From from from what practical and act so I think that Lewis and answer circular thing a lot. Joseph I remembered what I wanted to ask you in any one of your stories that are website. You had a quote a comment from dog around about the players the makeup of the roster and he talked about how. You know we're close what is it going to take to get over the top. And pushing themselves and all of that I guess that's I should the and obviously we're having the discussion about the blowup at camp How close I mean when you assess the roster and I think you have your driver pretty good feel for the 53. When you assess the roster how close do you think Well I think they need some improvement on the offensive line. In terms of getting some better performances. And I think they'll get that now that. Not a that hasn't. It is not the line of scrimmage he really struggled throughout the year but he but the other go out and they'll get it's on the roster. But in terms of the starting lineup. I think they're gonna need a better player at the first lawyer and what what to regular speed and yet here. And I also think the air experiment at right guard averaged the outback So they're relieved that you keep positioned here courting black at left tackle and no questions about John Carl Anderson at right tackle is gonna let out thing but. I think by a larger gonna get a pretty solid player. It's just a matter of the dark place and and how effective it will be. But that's that's one of the reasons. One of the things that. being make me wonder just how close they are and that lead into the quarterback. And how play this year how much time Google app in the backfield. It's it's really on injured I mean we can sit here and say they're close a lot of other partnership ought until the quarterback. Really turned that corner and it able to perform at a consistent and operate. It's just. It's just kind of your that I mean it it will matter I mean you can go 88 with a good defense. And a good running game but unless you have that quarterback really. Pushed up. Point four shortly consistent enough quarterback. Sneak into the playoffs we give you a couple more additional wind here. Then you're just don't circles but. I think I think Jerry Manuel the here as we've always pointed out but the offensive line is that it certainly initiative. They Sammy lock update any defendant he's not gonna play tomorrow right if you limited it I don't. Thanks so. It dug around that he had not been there at the plight and he was kind of that 20. To clarify whether or not that's just like now or. It's it's it's it's going to be the case felt throughout the weekend and the only thing kept saying what exactly black. He like it's not apply. And so there's not really that we can really get back clarification. So that would responsible. And that's a bolt lock in and Leo so right now he's not going to like. But it might that change the game on Saturday may be. I would then I think it probably shut about. It it just be Smart with saving a lot in them and they'll go into the game and say. That it would say all right orders can try to force better because. It's our first home game renovated coupled stadium is our big ticket this year look at what he was ideological they love it I think it looks hard to respect you know what let's just roughed up and and pick our fights occur battle for next week or or for the first regular season game because she is way more of that. Fully healthy in Chicago that he is in the first precinct and hope your year. last thing on the offensive line you mentioned you know that the changes up front now this is a different look in terms of the starting five that we will see tomorrow against Tampa Bay. You figure this is the line they want our record who has got the job we know that air would has the job we know that you do you said which set about Anderson a picture looks like he's got the job or was praising him earlier this week when he was all of us. What about Chris Williams what about their what's on the line tomorrow against Tampa in terms of the line. I personally going to be harder I mean that he has struggled at times this year but he he will start they've done to a big contract. In the offseason I think he'll be the starter the only question Mikey Eric pierce but what he'll record I mean they tried out Chris He would work article about the tackle they tried out Antoine McClain viewers bad. Gregor David trying to replace the entire camp. so or camp as a result. Internet. I don't think there would throw him back And it's your records and they gave every opportunity to win that job at any would take advantage of it. And values the second team like dark so I would say I would tend to think that. Doug rode Doug wrote an interest in what about this too because he said. We why we don't want our that's slightly and they're being on the bench. And maybe that would that taking clear moving into the inside because. says while at the pastor yeah it at a stronger camp that perpich. And since directions and Chris Hairston and public Kirstie and an Antoine McClain and all the different guys. I think I think peers is probably. Good the bad way to put it but the lesser evil here because you have at a at an above average but does ever that And I think this will probably be I deal lie based on out of rosters currently constructive. I joined needed a very short answer just give me the name okay guy treated in wanted to note on the full back battled frank Summers are ever in Rodriguez pick a name. Frank Summers well done I joked thank you as always for all the work Campbell look forward to hear from you again tomorrow and during the week. What be with us brought you by New York salad what's your outlet Joe's got a couple columns up to WGR 550 we touched on one of the camp awards actually to He's also got the article about Doug dug around exploding on team yesterday with the fight at training camps read both of those. And up the latest on what's going on the bill we've got to compilation of the stories that have moved overnight on that it's all available at WG 550 dot com. Miller moment we still accommodate 45 talks were football which you were data 30550 also. Coming up in the 9 o'clock hour mark Conan will be out of the bill's chief marketing officer of the work is done everything's ready to go well. Almost there but everything you need to know about from a fan's perspective is done with the stadium renovations for those you get that out. To the kids' day game tomorrow what to look for what you gonna see what the experience will talk about that at 915 on WG. Bush a set of guidelines that will be enforced at the start of the season. The plan is to eliminate twenty minutes from the way into the game we like to get it back to the two and a half hour rage said Bud Selig. On March 4. 1993. close. To adapt our range and to remember. Average time of games right image of a baseball aids. 315305. is 30305 that should be going up big sarcastic so they're not close to two and a half hours. Hours of perfect thank you very much by the way I law. 7 o'clock game over at 9705935. referred to 45 you're doing okay. If it's going to three real 330 for a nine inning game. It's exhausting it's hard to watch a nine inning game I think for most people for a Major League Baseball to sit down at the very beginning and watch all the way to the end. With all the pitching changes all the delays. To go three and a half hours of sitting there watching the same game is a pretty tough when their play every single even if you just you sit at home it's nighttime your relaxing your plopped down on the couch island as it's not a the Mets are on right there on that seven to 930 a that a lot something else you just not gonna like the Mets are on I'll be watching till. And thirty. Not commit to power base I wouldn't say that the major concern should be how long the game last I would. how fast it moves. The game moves faster minute to minute. You won't notices much of the time that goes by but you can. But inherently the game is slow as it is because of all that stop which is sort of saying if they can find a way to make it so you don't notice that. Because the game moves. That would be the win. There is so much sitting around waiting for something happened just. Even in between up pitch it's exhausting to watch the catcher go out in and talked to the pitcher a million times I think government's point there is that. They've been talking about this forever and nobody's really made a move or at least it didn't happen during leagues. of may be rob Manfred will make some changes I think that they should limit the amount at times a catcher can go talk to the pitcher that should be one of the things. I I don't know about the 122 rule. If that's necessarily real thing but stepping out of the batter's box mean you can. Step out for a second and a catcher Brad think about the next page but to take a walk. Around a big circle and undo the gloves like what are we watching here they got a clear their head mentally that get and for the next pitch and and pitching changes. Can we change it's three warm up pitches no warm pitches they downing David out of the bullpen for twenty minutes throwing the ball. You'd you'd do not need more than one or two pitches to get a sense of the mound we're coming into. I know you just played what you just played it's you mention this 21 years ago don't you think there are enough down owners commissioner. I've I don't know off the players actually wood which have been things just seems there's more people talking about a across the board there's enough people saying at that. Actually that might get it done this done. Yeah I don't know forty years ago I don't think we're really talking that much now it's been about some length of the game it's been pushed a lot by by a lot of the media with the change of Bud Selig a lot of people are calling it the number one issue that. He they're rob Manfred has addressed. So I don't know we'll see but I think it's better for everybody I don't think players would mind getting out of their 945 for yeah then. And thirty unpaid Biden's home tonight it is the final.

Question about the bills as they got a tweet about this you have mentioned earlier. There been a few stories overnight Forbes. Mike was Iranian Forbes has put out a story about the bid. The bids from the initial round the goal as was the highest 890. Toronto was what eight. Award trawlers off topic at 82831. trump was And and he was suggesting that the league should fire Morgan Stanley. Bring in another banker. Start the whole process again less restrictive nondisclosure agreements more bit higher price. Here's my question about the league because they got a tweet from a guy about this. The league is I'm sure the league. The trust would like the high self make money all that stuff the banks posted at the sale price the league I'm sure would want a higher sale price makes the values of all the teams rise up. Do you think the league is doing anything behind seems to encourage bidders. To get more people I mean this is all done basically what to get the highest sale price right. They just want. I think everybody figures out by now Toronto is not getting the team trumps not getting the team. There are three bids in that the there's no definitive Warren Ellis but it sure looks like team is not going anywhere. If the league has discouraged suitors and LA. Hey guys we really don't want the team to move so they decided okay that we're not gonna bid. If Toronto has been told you listen we're gonna need stronger assurances that you won't move the team and that's part of why their bid is dying. What else what possibly be doing in their efforts to drive up the price I can't believe that started all over again it looks like they want the team to stay. The only thing they could possibly do is find other bidders who wanna keep the team here. And have them to drive up the sale price for where to get the bit at the end I can't believe there's no way they'd open this up again their there'd. Persuading. People who wanna move the team to apparently not bid on the team it's not gonna be moved. Honestly other than get Golisano or. As trump to upper I don't know what else they can do they're just trying to drive up the price of Google is gonna pay for the team I think. Home when it's over that's it I just right at me again. Here's the trust sensing their bids dying. You know. Here's Forbes saying there are three bids then. And complaining that they set it up cute there were too many restrictions which is why you eliminated a lot of the potential bits but here's the league telling people who might bid. With out of town interest to move it that yet we don't want the So. My point is there's no there's no reason to restart this it's. It's going along designed I think to keep the bills here the problem is you're not driving up the bidding price locally. Enter the goal was sitting whatever. No one really coming up in the 9 o'clock hour if you're headed to the game on. See the bills in the box the new look Ralph Wilson Stadium will make its debut if you will for tomorrow's game we'll talk about that little bit coming at nineteen but mark Koenig chief marketing officer he was Still Ivins and trivia for you on this day. In and different year again they're closed today. Nolan Ryan and to 5000. Strikeout club all of that that's always what am I guess. 5000. Strikeouts for Nolan Ryan and 1989. He is one of sixteen.

And WG. Chris I had to go and my take him taking me in the I lost 51 pose an article like Jacko or brother looked at least it. You looked like pretty Wilson from does. big call by a good bit so I don't Due to take to Jim Kelly on the street with Mike and Mike and ESPN. Radio. Jim Kelly getting very good news from the doctors this week certainly one of the nominees and our Miller moment of the week. We'll get to the winner in just a moment Howard Jeremy Matthew here on WGR 8030550. To join us. It is Friday. pizza Friday so. And over two are good friends attend pizza pub and grill. And enjoy pizza Friday. When you're looking for a place to allow that some great food but also watch favorite team play. That you need to be its pizza pub and either location sport highway across America or their new location on transit the old your location. Across from eastern hills mall. And big screen TVs all over the place not a bad seat in the house great menu huge selection of draught Beers on tap. Awesome game night food and drink specials you get at all from Taurus pizza pub and grill. Western New York's number one sports bar and family destination. And the official pizza. Of the WG our morning show our Miller moment of the week it is brought you by Miller it's not just a good time. It's Miller time. Well a big week around the NFL. And around the sports world. One of the things bill Barnwell grant land ranked all the teams the NFL on speed and gave the bills are very very. Good grade. Pretty good. I felt like it Spiller and Graham and Watkins and the Calvin got a lot of guys who have some pretty good forty times indeed. Fourth fastest team we'll see it means anything wants in on the field the Brown's name their starting cornerback Mike Patton. Even says man's cell might not play L season. NFL season this is so long so much can happen and and we don't ever want our players and I talked about this already about the quarterbacks that that we don't want them. What Bryant looking over shoulders taken there one bad throw him come out. But over time did show you need to make changes not just at quarterback it it'll be at other positions as well. Possibly might not play earlier in Brian Hoyer is getting a bit of the his name's Brian Hoyer he's Obama. Dumped on him he's used to an all star last year he went and played well they won both games that he started and finished via knockout against the bills. So like I know the browns might win a game or two or 45 or knows. It's totally believable to me that Brian Hoyer is better than Johnny men's so I don't think it's like. Yeah you said currently right to keep fresh Catholic long term meant might be a better quarterback against they drafted it was to be right now we're about right now you know More advanced disease and exposure to the the team in the league adamant that the sabres at a big announcement yesterday very pleased to announce that on October 22.

And that's what we did right there anything tackle redskin there no ride you're the rookie you guys are getting here and. How should you react when mind you certainly shouldn't do that you certainly should go back and and you know live to fight another down as they say. But it comes full circle we saw plays that probably should have been adjusted that Warner just against the we inaccurate throws from Johnny men's health and that we saw a place where he lost his composure level competitor you're and a little guy that competes but you have Dulles also understand kind of where you war. And come on Johnny men's though I mean you've got pictures of you flowed all over the Internet right now. He's a professional athlete so there will be pictures of him on the Internet.

Bills halt practice after second straight day of fights this non story as it dead spin dot com. story right. Yeah training camp but some bills fans get offended you call things like this non stories because they don't wanna believe that their team is. A coming up RB having an issue well to me it's a non story because it's training camp guys fight training camp. You wanna say that the fighting is announcer of what caused it but that Maroney handled. Both worlds a non story yet no I'm her owns losing his grip on things instead and stay one there's something different about it. I think he is absolutely a different head coach and it isn't you guys exited near to your question I'm telling its representative to something changing to the tournament it was great the other answer all across it was he was fine the other day and yet. There's been a different side and that's and prevalent through camp.

Howard to every match you with you here on WGR. We're joined by head coach of the Buffalo Sabres right Rolston whose with us good morning grunt -- Jeremy how -- And like well that's obviously wanna talked about Matt Olson let let's start there before -- other topics this week and just you know as almost disputed that view as you can actually dream up so what did you think of his game last night what. In addition to the -- stood out to you about that -- play last night. Yeah and our -- -- actually get to see that I don't. -- they gave their client -- -- get prepared and -- is probably an open shot the trade. Yeah in our trooper rationalize why and how bout. Not produce or straight up the bat those are two hours first to iPod -- -- the -- and which is a good sign especially crops and early this season is that I mentioned last night the press conference he's a hockey -- What I mean in my that as he's written about every aspect of the game last ideas that are solid but on the -- makes little subtle plays spirited neutral alternately up front. -- -- There you come to appreciate that I need these guys -- -- So he worked. He was going -- that effort guys. You know what -- asking about his overall game because nearly eight you know we we see the goals and clearly you know those report out after goals. But one of the things that stood out -- was what you just talked about. His jacket you know he got the puck back at times and earlier team has struggled -- -- on the puck possession this year but there were times in the neutral zone or even in the the offensive zone where he would you know check check a guy get the puck back and start a series of plays for your team. Any stronger over the pocket thank you could see that op ads on and around the -- -- over the well and you know he extended session and -- they offense insult because of that and look at this effort come back collapsed right. Transition them. Audi again played to water it both ways and it was a good out there. What did you tell him when when he first arrived what what what did tell the specifically about what you're expecting from him or his role or. Where your general message to him. Oh we don't see how first topic it's wanted to do what it out to -- -- out of all of this out big game that basic game. Get all you know lawyer here or act is -- -- stall. We wanted to make sure that you -- comfortable. And that you know we really wanted to hear all of that and look at app. -- -- So -- -- -- able -- spot a 100 pro -- and and yet other players picture arts and leadership to be younger players also showed its auditors. He said I think he said after the game this is as nervous says he had been since his first NHL game. How do you gore teammates go about trying to help them calmed down last night that. I think you know it goes back I think you know we got younger and the US they're bad luck. I know made it -- -- and again. I think disparity at it settled about in terms there's a big ball actually at Outback Bowl forests and and it set the -- art and soul out executed the guys were what we're up at bat. Though -- one other thing on him that ought to get some other guys when you get in this particular case that -- but any newly acquired player who comes in from outside the organization. In the season how quickly can get him up to speed in terms of your system and the things you do here in buffalo. Well I think you're not going to be -- -- last night you were able to get -- -- grew up. Scallop on the other ear -- he was able the top spot you know what you're doing what right away and it looked good. -- at play at -- also need to be so Smart player. -- -- -- other players well and not already out the back -- how -- -- out. -- like Tyler Ennis had more energy in his game last night that he's had this season. Would you agree and if so -- that was any byproduct of Molson. I think so I mean I think yeah outsiders. Aren't flat -- games really played well in terms of Africa are always got a lot more laps -- -- -- had -- kind of strayed far. Probably the most all season but I think of well big part of that it shares. You know -- and what that top group form and be an energized to have up players like quoting odds and and Matt Olson out there what -- early I'd Tyler's. It's a playmaker to him and enabled but MI out there where it. No goal scorer like -- also I think was for some of it energized him because ER he can make always. They -- coach Ron Rolston what does one ask about a couple of other forwards but. Last night obviously the you know the big story last night was the return of -- route from -- obvious she worked with as well when he when he was here. Was it. What was it like for you with -- what was it like for you to be behind the sabres bench and that I it was the tributes on the Jumbotron and Lindy is backing down. Are where Scott and I attribute this great is outstanding and well deserving obviously -- But the amount of you know dedication that is that the organization. So I couldn't happen to a better person than I thought it was a great tribute. You have darkest -- -- last night and you try that a little bit last year can you talk a little bit about. Why you moved to back it said -- and what do you think about long term where his best fit is. Well I have we -- small air last year we we actually. Wanted to get more ball in the played this year and I think you know put them in the middle it's around -- more and he's more energized. He had a pot or ask to be around more. And I think -- also some size up the middle wish we don't have a match up so. -- -- -- he was able to play against. And other players are other team's top five and note to prayers for example. And -- your. So it gives us that size element and he's a competitor and you know I think -- just our players I think he was able to make adjustments but quite. How do you balance that out because I I think when when this happened last year I'm pretty sure we would have talked about it with you and I believe at that time. It was balancing it out what you just talked about all the attributes up the middle verses is play along the boards when he's on the wing. You know he's always strong and all but he's also been able to maintain its physical game might pick up the metal. And that's probably the most important and that -- users' eyes and when. You know make sure he's physical and and makes other play players pay the price shot especially on the short checked in and make a big body in your soul ballad always able to look contain him -- some of those bigger. Senator minute forwards in the -- off the bat so. Are we can use this -- and other other dimensions -- picked -- this matter. You know you have a picture up so far. A lawyer asked about a couple of guys from the weekend who -- it limited ice time was the Tampa game there was limited ice time in the third for Stafford and Hobson. Stafford is down on the fourth line last night how do you feel those two guys responded frog with the message in Tampa. Well I think -- -- like. Ortiz came -- -- -- that he's made good steps. In -- step for man from the medical or on the road and you know I think again he's a young player that. In his two improve and get better make adjustments to the game so. And and we knew he was gonna bounce back last night I thought he had that I -- a better game. Are you frustrated or at wit's end with Stafford. All -- but not necessarily you know I think you. You know wherever we put them I think he's he's been able and I'll contribute and delegate is a veteran presence or -- Are still a good job. Well that one other guy when asked about was -- ago he got a lot of ice time in Florida and it was up over sixty minutes last night. He got a couple of minutes on the number two power play. Got a plate with a a nice setup on Steve not so can you just talk a little bit about Greg Greg do you see any progress in the last few games for him. Yeah he's starting his computers that's for improving the -- out there and and when that happens you're gonna have the puck more and workers and equipment situations we've had -- it recently on the wing and then. Situations or maybe it takes lot of a little bit more with a sense of covered shall all and allows abuse -- -- Scale out on the way but we're still. In the situation or trying to find most Menem's that are going to be well. For achievement last night we're able to get a mount olive oil little bet he was able to make -- they're used to it not so. Well and -- -- got to continue to build and continue to work on his game. How much of that is willingness to compete -- much of it is understanding what type both. Compete like what situations maybe learning the game at this level. Yeah I think that's -- -- I think he came in literally one. In order -- but I a lot of those players have expectations. And believe that there are gonna jump right out of the hands and impact that -- and they're here and they they understand how hard the league has helped that the bodies are fast pace as. And that they have to make adjustments there and I think that's what. Well greed -- launcher that right now I'd like -- -- because he you know you can see here is out. It's compete bought out and and understanding the game better and especially at this level on how fast that is out of -- that it is able to. What make adjustments so that -- continued yeah. Obviously -- a coaching staff to work with a player like that do you lean on other players. Did you have a dire tune to talk to Greg Craig gore or -- players lean on guys like that. All -- they -- obviously in the room and on the bench they're actually communicating what some special appointees -- and noble or. One without authorities all it was you've gotten now Marcos -- -- most of those guys help. And other players on the bench in the room how well and well I think this year. You know especially for our veterans you know it's their jobs -- help all of those younger players and help the development process. You're a few more games left was the door for guys have to make the decision on him. Is it do you feel like you've got a a solid evaluation on him whether he can stay here is good enough to stay here needs go back to juniors. Yeah yeah thanks Orleans. He's played all -- -- so are. I do think that you know the young players still kind of don't always make those gains -- -- at all but a plateau and thus you have to be ready for that I think he's got a good job early on and you know initially you know what and -- injury spend. A slow process getting amid gains have been once we did I think she's got a good job of taking advantage of the opportunity. Same situation as last -- yet to ask yourself. Do any benefit from playing in London and I know the penguins kept his defense -- -- motto was playing with him in London they kept him. So you know it I don't know does -- everything to gain in London. Well I think right now he's been able to play at the slot also I don't know. You know especially physically it's real big and strong -- it's not like she needs more. I'm in the church physically. You know he's able to go out there. We've been impressed with just tell how strong is an escape and some of the better players but leaks oil. You know right now. If you can continue to play the way he's playing. You know he's he's in a situation here where the impressed by the speed that. The size of these players -- all gonna accelerators development. When you look around the league is is there anything. Different about big the game today and I don't know 1015 years ago because this year you've got a lot of kids staying up a lot of teams have kept their guys whether it's you know Monahan staying up and of course you know Seth Jones the guys the top but. It seems like the numbers each year are climbing for the number of guys that are staying up. -- I think the bigger fame what that would be ute movement is just the speed. You know obviously that -- -- You know you -- speed of the game out there and the Baskin school is a good real good -- feet. Am you know like young guys provide that change feet. So. You know and then the older guys that -- not work and other. You know can lose to stop and that's where you know you -- a little bit of the changing the game to. Older more youth movement -- a lot of these camps. What's the plan with Patrick -- there when his suspension is up does he go right back in the line. -- -- Well we got you know at that point we've got a lot of -- they can come and Alec got some guys come back and and that will abound as an organization and trigger out what's the best. Look forward to have you know Corey Trout OB. Somebody's coming back here and we've got so obviously Johnny Scott had a lot of Sotheby's good decisions and we have to make found stretcher was the time right now on drop. Boy should get back at me or all he's going to be back by this Saturday. He's in a situation now he's the red church in practice and for the first time much today you'll be able to at least Arnold contacted -- and get back to a so he's he's fairly close. -- about the army. Our media is actually east it's. Yeah he's got a situation -- Jordan some physical therapy in just a range of motion back and and his injury and Barack. -- he's probably. You know they'll probably a couple of weeks away. -- Let's avoid -- ago I know last week we talked -- you know your your -- down -- tigers suggest that limit the playoffs did you catch the end of the lions game on Sunday. I'll yet a little -- I guess I -- -- -- pretty exciting now. Exactly alike so Matt you're my three year old son pulled -- is Matthew Stafford sure.
