How's it going, guys? Real well, real will thanks for having US deal. Thanks for coming on. And James, last time I interviewed you was actually a couple weeks or so before we actually launched the podcast. So this is an official welcome to the show podcast for both of you. Really and no, we appreciate it. Good to be here under different, you know, a little bit different circumstances, but so east from Lake for sure. So I had to go back and look at the date. You're not going to believe this. The date was November twenty two, two thousand and nineteen when I interviewed you last so totally different circumstances. Don't know. Now you guys are coming in next season with an expansion franchise and Rhode Island. Whichever one of you wants to start this. How did you guys came up with the idea? I guess I I'll go with age before beauty on this one. You know something that's needed? Both James and I have invested a lot of time and energies into the Rhode Island market and Jane, James Played High School hockey hair assal and moved on through junior hockey and had a wonderful career at Brun they should be a doubt with college and then he came back here and he led that same lassial team to a state championship at Brown University. I had to fortune to move in here in two thousand and eleven and started a summer program, training program all over speed hockey and it's really been focused on the Rhode Island, southeastern mass some of the Connecticut kids, but really strong focus here in Rhode Island. And there were so many good players here in Rhode Island and there was one link that was missing and that was junior hockey. And I think we found out there were about twenty five kids playing at this level of the EHL. I think fourteen in the EHL at one point or a similar level, but not here in Rhode Island. And it's just that continuation was that missing peace. And I had the good fortune of being one of the original members and Co founders of the Easton Junior Hockey League back in ninety two. There was nothing here and from there the Atlantic Junior League, you know, became viable, the eastern junior league and then over time in the last ten years it's kind of changed yet again and and James Actually played in the eastern junior league moved on. So he and I get along so well. We do a lot of cold, cold branding and cold promotions. We help each other, we help each other's programs and it was that logical step Dale. So I'm so excited. I'm going backwards in my life here and I'm pumped to have James with me. Is An awesome young hockey mind and has done so many good things here in Rhode Island. And James, I mentioned I interviewed you back in November of two thousand and nineteen. At that time you were the head coach of the railers. You had just one season there because of what we'll call it covid there was some you started a family as well. How shortly after that...

...time ended with the railers did you connect with toby and started to put the wheels in place for this? So it was it was pretty shortly after that because they I guess. I had a year off from coaching team sports. So I did a lot more organization training, I did a lot more skill development stuff and through toby, through overspeed and through through my business here there around Hockey Academy. You know we just got linked up a lot more, like I suddenly started seeing toby on Tuesday, Tuesday nights, Thursday nights here and they're doing skills with youth organizations and you know, we just start talking. You know, you get that twenty minute idle time in between sessions and you know, talking about Rhode Island hockey and how much it does mean to us. And a little piece of what we left out about our connection was, you know, him starting that eastern junior league franchise up in New Hampshire. The gentleman who took it over from toby when he went into the eastern and I'm sorry, the CHL was a guy by the name of Sean Trombley who I ended up playing for with the New Hampshire monarchs. O. Toby's franchise in the Eastern League became the New Hampshire monarchs that I played for, you know, which is where I ended up getting my chance to go to college and have a chance to play at Dartmut. So you know, our paths kept the intertwining and and, like I said, I guess it was it was Covid who ended up bringing a lot of things back home within the borders especially at those times we were stuck in Rhode Island, you know. So we started talking a lot more about it and, you know, ribbing them every time I talk about it, and then suddenly, in between whistles, he's passing by giving the ideas and thoughts and, you know, suddenly just kind of kept matriculating to the point where, you know, we decided to pull the trigger on it and think it was something that not only was a good idea but was something that, you know, we wanted to take on and do. So that that's where we got to hear at this point. And when people ask me about this new group coming in, I explain how it ls you two guys fifty, and it's kind of a combination of overspeed hockey and the our hockey academy, because those are what those are your businesses. I want to learn more about each one of them. Was So started with you, James. What is the Royland Hockey Academy? So in two thousand and sixteen, you know, we were coaching the high school level a little bit here and and r island starting to do more with youth programs and needed something, something more formal than people, you know, coming to me you know, writing a check to my name. So we, you know, we started this little put business, little company, which quickly became a little private training center. So we actually have a little three thousand square foot facility in East Greenwich now, which is a bordering town of Warwick, where this team is going to be based out of. And we've got a little mini ice sheet, we've got a little synthetic sheet, so we have a real eye sheet surface that we do goalie training on. We got a synthetic sheet that we do shooter training on. So we do pretty much twelve months out of the year just that extra small area repetition, muscle memory type training, you know, which is what we kind of focused on, and toby a little bit different model. You can, you know, talk a little more about about your own but you know, that's that's kind of how we got founded in this whole thing was on individual skill development while we were still working with the high school program that that I used to play at. So everything kind of just came back around with this junior venture, I guess. So then roll over told me what is overspeed hockey. Another headache for me to be involved in during me is in the National Hockey League. I think it was in two thousand and twelve I was working foot buffalo and I've always done summer programs where I was when I was running the oldiest a junior hockey league franchise down in Johnstown in the East Coast League for from, you know, a decade will. We always did things in some we like to be involved with the kids. So when we moved here to Rhode Island, there was a void. Billy arm strong, because the gym and Arizona used to run a program here and he and I actually we were talking with I think we were in Finland or Russia somewhere on a scouting trip and he said Hey, you know, this seems to be done in Rhode Island. So two thousand and twelve we started doing a summer training program Oh see, for college players, upper end prep, junior kids, and it just took off.

Kids were traveling to Massachusetts all the places to training the summertime. So while I was working in national lake it would be a summer thing. would be that extra thing we did, you know, state current work with kids, help kids, things like that. But I retired as a scouting director with the Florida panthers in two thousand and seventeen and my wife looked at me and said what are you going to do? And everybody's always asking for more things, so I said, you know what, let's see where it goes. So we started going twelve months a year and it exploded. You know, great partnerships like with James and you know Nick and Jim mcniff over at the Hockey Academy, and we end up picking up some schools, some prep schools. I'm not Mount St Charles Right now, the Mount St Charles Hockey Academy. We do all for their teams. We have a training center now out West and in Sun Valley, Idaho, but we have programs in Colorado, Pittsburgh, Long Island, throughout here in New England. But it's kind of cool because tree covid we also do programs in China and now, thankfully, we've been able to get back to Europe. So it's one of those programs that we don't want to be too big. We have really, really good people, all either current former pro coaches college coaches. So let's main business right now. We try and help kids and organizations get better. We do organizational advising and managerial stuff. We do some consulting, like in the East Coast League and things like that, and then we started a side company, a kind of assistic coup. They called three hundred and sixty advisory, but we're actually doing play of advisory now as well, something we always did for for young people and all, but we're kind of doing it more formally. So, as James said, you know it's that, it is. It's at three hundred and sixty looton. The only thing that I was missing was the ladder to help kids get to that next place. In Easton Hockey League has done such a great job of that so well run we just figured it was the next logical, logical step. And your guys are coming into a state that needs a junior hockey team. We never, never had a junior hockey team in that state. I know you haven't announced this yet, so maybe we can get some sort of hint out there, because I've I've played our three new ehlp teams, but maybe a color, just get give us something about what this team is going to look like when they hit the ice for the first time in the fall. Maybe not the name. You can hold back the name if you want. To. It'll have a true Rhode Island, Rhode Island flair. Okay, it'll bring in a little bit of Europe maybe. We want a lot of people to be part of this. We don't want to have walls up, you know, we want walls down. We want people to be included in this. We want to be involved in the youth hockey that we in the areas that we play, and so we want it to be more of a people to feel included, more of a membership type of situation. We like blues, we like we like Tals, we like we like the ocean. We you know, we just want a real, real good feel and we're really, really coast, James, that I gotta have a wrestling match to figure out with the final. Those are good hands. And back to you, James. I mentioned this earlier. Having that year of experience already coaching in this league, how valuable would that be for this upcoming season? It actually been a while since I was away from junior hockey and and and the long season and the practices and the additional games and everything like that. So, you know, coming back to it and seeing kind of the lay of the land and where it is now and what it requires and what it takes to play at this level. You know, I got a really good appreciation for what the League brings in. I mean it's a high level, players are good, it's it's a competitive league. It's not something you can just throw players on the ice and hope for the best. It's definitely a situation where you got to find for us, for trying to find the right group of kids, you know, all leaders, kids that are going to, you know, be successful later and educational academic situations. You know, we want to have a group of guys that were going to enjoy being around for the whole season. We want...

...to try to do it the right way and do right by two kids and, you know, I think for those reasons, I think we'll have success with it. So and I think one of my big takeaways and watching this announcement, you know, unfold over the weeks, has you guys seem like you've been ready for this for a while, but you wanted to do it at the right time and that's been confirmed by the response that you've got from the community. Can you talk more about the community since the inauspit was made, how they have just responded to this. I think it's been great. I think the social media and the media response where excellent. You know. You know, I give people like mock diver and others a ton of credit for, you know, paying attention to it. You know, sometimes junior hockey and move England gets forgotten about a little bit. You get you get parents and girlfriends in the stands and things like that. So it's been great. I think we get we got mentioned by both NBC, ABC and all three, plus Mac Diva, New England Hockey Journal, gave us a little bit of a tweet. And what was cool as a number of the youth organizations around here also pumped it out. So run islands an interesting state and it's a real whole me state and you know, James Moving here, you know, in his teens. You know, it's kind of a native here. I've been here eleven or twelve years. They've really welcomed US and they're such awesome people and they really care and they take care of their own. So I think it's going to real well that way. The city of Warwick, you know Holly Eric over with dpw at the rank. They've been phenomenal to work with. The regular people you know they like, yeah, do this that to make it work for everybody. They haven't again, they haven't put up while. So we're hoping. We're hoping and obviously one of the things about you guys coming in you'll get a chance to play everybody. But it's pretty obvious that you'll be in this central division to be joining a division that has two of our visional ehl members in the rough riders, in the Apple Core, I've seem in the chiefs that's gotten better and better each year, and James Wooster, who's having easily their best season than franchise history. Do you are you going to feel instant almost pressure joining the central or it just kind of take your time and know that as time progresses you guys will be just fine. All, as I said, I think we're going to put in the first year. We're going to put the right group of kids to focus on development, making our group of kids, you know, better at the end of the day. You know, coach of death is still one of my biggest mentors in the game. I mean I've learned, I've learned more from hockey in that year. I, you know, I tell everybody learned more than that year about hockey than I did, you know, the first twenty three, twenty four years before I came into that situation. So you know, I'm honored to coach against people like him. You know, I did it when I came into the Rhode Island ranks. You know, Bill Bill, I always there, Jimmy Kramerton coaching that Hender can you know bill bl out, think got his thousand winnen was inducted in the the USA Hall of Fame When I was coaching there and I was fortunate enough to be, you know, the last person to beat him in his time playing. You that rest, you know. But you know, I'm looking forward to the challenge. You know I've always been a little bit of the underdog. So I'm looking forward to this year having something to be able to call our own and to be able to put, you know, our heart and soul into it and to see it coming forward on the ice and through the kids is going to be a lot of fun and for myself personally. I mentioned this earlier. There's never been a junior hockey team for us in Rhode Islands. So this is it feels a huge void and it's also it's a state where we host our finals. We host the right there at Providence College. So maybe it's a loaded, way too early question. But the goals for your program how quickly do you guys want to basically be the host team and and make it to the finals? I think we would like to be the number one. But I'm going to I'm going to go and wreck it right now and you'll say we're going to try and do things a little differently and it's going to go back to why we started the East and let junior league back in the beginning, and it's to help kids get and achieve something.

You know, hey, I want to win, I want to hold that cup up. I wouldn't sit at Oman's college. We run I'M A programs there. We run on mid to tournament. They are like James is work for Providence College. You know on this at one of the goalie coaches that like we want to be there. It's more important make a commitment to twenty four kids every year and then see that through their investing in us, we're investing in them, we're investing in families. So a lot of times in junior hockey wins and who we can get and how we can do this takes precedent. Sometimes that's not going to be the way this is done, because it's be no reason for us to get involved. If that's the way it wants to be. I think the process will lead to the results. So one of the things that James Night agree on so vehemently is why I started. I got involved back in the early days of junior hockey in New England. What junior hockey, Lea Hockey, did for James and his career, in his life and his education, and that is our prime everything. We want to be a conduit in an avenue for these kids to get to what's next. And if we went along the way like we're going to compete like a bug up. But it's number one that we help that group of kids. We're not going to have thirty kids. When that's thirty kid goes on our roster, you call me and yes to you and you can give it to charity. We're going to start an end with the group of kids that, unless they do something wrong, they will finish that year with us. We're going to try and build family and do it right. Well where. Are Beyond excited to have you. Like I said, a perfect fit for us right into the central division, and send for coming down there in a couple months. Hope to see you at the at this year's frozen finals. We will, we will. James been out on the road recruiting doing a great job. And I will say this, and I won't say what his name is, but we have one player right now. All right, excited about them. He's the first player in the to be announced soon tea history. So we're pumped to have you guys, and I know I've said this before, but let us be another official. Welcome to the EHL. Thank you. Thanks now, we really appreciate it. Next, taking the time today. There's a reason why we ask for this league to Neil. You guys have done a great job. Who are on it to be part of it. Thanks again to Toby O'Brien and James Mella for coming on the podcast this week. The new franchise owners that are coming into Rhode Island next season looking to make some waves in their first year in the EHL. James, of course, was with the railers junior hockey club in their first year and I think toby knows literally everybody in hockey, because everyone I talked to knows who Toby O'Brian is. But with that, let's bring in the e crew now. And guys, I have to start with Jeff because, with it being a Rhode Island team, Jeff, I have to ask you a trivia question first and then get some very big news with you. Who? So I don't know if it's Trivia when I don't even know the answer to this, but because your rode, I want to have to ask it. Why do they call it rode island when it's not an island? I almost ask the question to toby and James. So I'm still as you know, I'm a Rue island transplant. I'm from Massachusetts originally. I'm going into been here for about two and a half, three years now. So that might be a question for my fiance. will say. Friend, that has great, great transition, Jeff, because stick taps, you pulled it off and used to not ruin the secret like you almost did on hockey teasing hockey TV. Baby can gratch that. Jeff on has engagement. Hey, yeah, thank you crew. Love it. Cliff notes, how did you pull it off? Oh, it's a very good question. So actually this is kind of funny. Like you said, cliff notes. For me. That's gonna be hard, but let's do it cliff notes. So I was invited down to a hockey workshop. I'm not kidding you. That's how we got this done. So that's perfect for this wonderful show called the show, because we play hockey in the AHL, although we'll get to that in a second.

Because of this week kind of looked like we were not playing hockey. We're playing a couple other sports. But my old program director worked with me for a couple of months on the plans of it all and he said, how about we invite you down for a hockey workshop, because w RCH, you I used to work for in the sports department, is going into there in their twelve year, not going into their in their twelve year of being the flagship radio station for the New York Islanders. So I used to do studio updates for the islanders my senior year and John said Wyn't you come in the twenty four is the first day of the semester. That was the final date that actually worked. was moved nine million times. So I was like, Christina, you got to come down. It's a hockey workshop and John Wants you to kind of talk a little bit about your career too. And these students were amazing. They faked all the way through. We talked for forty five minutes, which is Christina's favorite partners like that was all fake. They all knew what was going on. Yep, and then they all followed. They we ended the workshop, they went into studio be or Christina used to do a lot of TV stuff for Hafstra, and they put up an amazing display on their giant new video board of pictures of us and it said will you marry me, Christina. Christina walked into Studio Betack Christina but didn't see the William Mery me part, so she had a little I joked of there's a little dyslexic moment that she read it backwards, because you're at Christina verss like Oh, they wrote like Jefferson Christina, welcome back, and then she was like wait, will you and I was and then I turned around, got down on one D and I was like, Yep, this is happening and she was like Oh, yes, what? And you can go see the video on a lot of people follow us on Facebook, instagram, you gotta do a little twitter post still. But her octave was through the roof and it was amazing. Was Hell, you didn't blow it on hockey TV last week, is what you're saying, because you brought it up on hockey TV. I did. Brought it up my last broadcast with Mr Shawn Waltz, my broadcast partner, texting me tonight say congrats, partner. I'm happy for you and I'm glad you didn't blow it in our broadcast last week. Got I knew she had some showings and she was not going to be watching. That would have been too funny if you just had your log and pulled up on your computer and it just went. Didn't go that way you Planan. But Hey, that was congrats, man, that congrats. I mean we all kind of are waiting for the text us back for about forty eight hours, but we knew she said yes, so we're happy for you. So sorry about that. I got individual text view Justin and it was a lot the last couple days because I said when all the way down to Hastra, then high tail the back so I could get back for a broadcast yesterday and then, yeah, it's been like a litany of calling and texting friends and stuff. I did not forget about you guys. I knew we were going to record tonight and I wanted to just talk to all of you. Didn't realize I was going to do this live, but I want to tell you all person in our little pre talk before the show. But thank you, neal and thank you Anthony, Lauren. Justin you guys are awesome. I love you all and thank you for all the wild wishes. And with that, let's get into the week to run down. It's time for the e cruise weekly run down. These show week you run down is brought to be. Find the junior hockey podcast, your home for junior hockey news, knowledge and nonsense. Check them out of tjg podcastcom. So who wants to start? I don't know, I don't know, I don't know. Like a lot went on, a lot of goals were scored. What I don't have anthony run this up. When the sevens go to Sono, it's what Sono? This is where the rough riders play. It's literally either a blowout or an overtime or a shootout game there. There's no in between. I don't understand. There's literally no one between Neil. It's one of the weirdest matchups I've seen, and this is lasting for about three seasons now, where one one day the eighty sevens will blow out the riders and then the next day the rough riders win in an overtime or shootout. So, just for...

...additional context, a few days ago the rough riders ended the eighty seven's winning shrieks. I'm no longer using the HASHTAG eighty seven way with yeah, just back to the one. W and column Ella Square a hat trick that game, including the overtime winner. He was terrific and for the eighty seven it's not the result they're hoping for, but it that's back with an overtime win in their own against team Maryland. Earlier today they were Connecticut's the rough riders are Nila. are kind of like last year's values and your Worris team. Right. They have kind of been middling in the standings, but they've picked some teams off this year. Some of the teams at the top of the standings just like valued it last year. They only finished with ten oral level wins, but those are all against the avalanche's Rangers Express teams that were at the top of the league last year. If you guys agree, the rough riders are part of that side of the League. That is as the label. Who are they at the top of it? Because who you're going to get when you face the Connecticut rough riders like, truthfully, especially when the playoffs come around? But the sevens were number one last week as antimatch, and they have an overtime loss and an overtime win avalanche, since last week went perfect. Is that an easy? Flip Avalanche back to one hundred and eighty seven the two, because after that things are I don't even know where to go. Yeah, it gets real messy after that. It's going to take a little bit of sifting through. Yeah, I get my vote for that. I mean it's kind of I mean, if one play devil's advocate, though, fourteen game winning streak, we've done for me lately. Yes, you did lose the rough riders. Avalanche just lost their winning streak recently, but we flipped avalanche. Have one eleven of twelve. So a New Jersey and New Jersey's one hundred and fifteen of seventeen. But I actually it's a great remindership. I have to update something here in the website. Their point streak is still going, I think, in this case, while the seven still have a point streak going, I think with the avalanche and eighty sevens, I don't think it's unreasonable to kind of have them shifting spots. You know, wanted to right now, because I think they're just the two top teams right now. So whether you keep the sevens one, whether you keep the ABS one, I don't think you can go wrong either way. So let's go avalanche one, hundred and eighty seven s two, and then whoever wants to take a shot at number three go right ahead. Hmm, I think the ducks have to stay there because only one loss. Yeah, Wawren swings first and they are fresh off was it six or seven in the other there weren't we had a number of streaks over going. Yeah, they were firing them all cylinders her to see the dark wing duck graphic. None of these kids in the league know who that is. Not even Terry really knew who was. I don't know wing. I don't even know who that is myself. So we have to talk more to teach us to tell us, please. Will keep your secretly your knows. I don't know darkwing duck. You Do, Anthony? Yeah, it's a Disney cartoon. Yeah, just on Disney channel. When we're going up. I wasn't more growing up. For the rest of US round already old much. Neal, Justin Sae. Actually, if he's like between, Hey, it's on a Disney plus, it's on there. He was voiced by Jim Cummings, the same guy who voice winned the poop. If I'm not mistaken, this is I'm learning a lot right now. I've heard of it and Justin's really good at graphics. Okay, because beauty from Joston. Neil, I watched way too too many cartoons as a kid, so I'm kind of familiar with these things. Okay. I mean I'm not really big in the television as we've covered on this podcast. I'm okay. I'm okay with the duck staying at three. It will be interesting. We're recording this Wednesday night. This is actually the...

...latest we record of the podcast all year, I think, so after dark past Neil. At time this was a regular this is a regular thing. Last year, the pretty style we're doing all like love Bfso what? Sure part of the reason last year, I think, we recorded so late was because sketules, every schedule to have set a change change. So we had to we had to give enough time the past to see what took place. Yeah, sometimes, but it'll be interesting because the chiefs did really it wasn't like a three to a one goal type game. The chiefs handed it's a protepe today, five to one. So we'll see how protect response coming out of the back end of this to game set. But I'm fine with avalanche one hundred and eighty seven s to protect three. I think from there it's kind of where do we go? Valley probably has to go out because I didn't win it. Yeah, any games after we put them in, we kind of they was a little bit of a curse this week. We hadn't had too many curses. But we put the sevens at one. They lost. We put the ducks in, although the three they lost. Valley lost. I think valley has to go out. Does wallpoole go to for because Wallpool had a loss in there as well, but it was a shutout. Yes, I think they yes, I think I think they done enough to take for okay, then WHO's five? We move PLF back in? Yeah, I think little flyers have to come back in. Jeffs got them on. You gotta put them in. I'm supporting a low thank you, buddy. My head's gigantic. Feels like it looks kind of silly. But and now lead. The lead fired up for with a with a hundred and forty eight. So their offense has been rolling. Yeah, yes, I would say so. They also just had their first commitment of the year, which is our fifty commitment of the season, Kyle Patton to buffalo states. That's a big one for them. We're actually the general way now. We're to away now from one fourteen hundred as a league. So you know, Jeff knows this. I love milestones, so I like whole numbers like that. So Sif Rom, I guess the only thing I have to bring up then is if wall post for in, the little fires are five. Who Do we need a watch after that, because we had receiving votes. The wolves. Tough weekend for them. They lost, the spartans lost to the avalanche. Is there another team that's just on the outside looking again that are railers? Maybe really was. Well, they did beat the Rangers today. What even five hundred last ten and that's like that's not that's no hat against them, but they just they haven't. Yes, they eat peach are today, but they before that they hadn't been looking all that great. Plus it end up it like they started out with a three nothing lead for quite well and then end up US three, two games. So that's yes, it's a win, but it's not the cleanest win to so yeah, let's sounds like Lauren has no one receiving votes. I don't think I'm gonna give anyone receiving boats either. Honestly. I mean, you change my mind, sure, but I don't really see anybody this week could didn't even super, super exciting just yet. I actually have to agree with Lauren. I don't think anyone receives votes. I get what you're saying. Neal is someone, maybe some teams that we could watch out for and like kind of receiving votes. Of An as frisk. That's for the week, but I mean in terms of like watching out for certain games. I'm curious to see how the chiefs ducks game goes tomorrow, row after they had quite the wind from chiefs today. With a hat trick from dressing our show like the chiefs were just having a ball today. So it's going to be interesting to see if the ducks can come back from that tomorrow. I agree. I I thought I'll say this fine, not receiving votes, receiving conversation for relifs that I mean. Can we talk about team Marilyn Getting Jackson Bernard? That could be an answer in between the pipes. Not that Gideon Sullivan and Burkey's look good in short order since coming back from his what a story about him coming back from his injury. But I mean put an art in front of team Mariland, a team that scores a lot of goals. Yeah, that's huge. Jackson Bernard's gonna...

I think he's gonna want a lot of games for coach bus got on the stretch. I could be a huge that could be the trade of the year or addition of the year. Sorry, just another thing to note about team Marilyn real quick. While they still lost against the eighty seven today, they looked really good. Their offense is clicking again and they're one up by an overtime goal from Mattz didanowits by. I think Marilyne was in a funk before. I think that they're going to be picking up some steam as time rolls on. I mean they can get their stuff back to write. Anthony. Yeah, they're still waiting on Harold in and I think once he he should be back before the postseason. And I think once he returns, then Marilyn will be prime for another good runner, potentially one of the playoffs. So I still think that their team to watch out for, even though they weren't playing their best hockey in the past couple of weeks. But did they get GROSSI I don't. I wouldn't take them out. Yeah, he was playing back in so I mean that's big. Who Wins the south? Could be anybody this point. I still feel like it's I want to say New Jersey, but I mean they're all all of protect and Philly. You're both heating up on no. Protect just lost, but they have been really good lately and I really liked what I saw from them. Yeah, when they go off, they go off and they really make a noise. And even then, as more as as broadfoot and Evan get, you know, more they've been very comfortable and they both have been producing more points. But you know, I think they're going to get more comfortable and Terry Watt may be busy at the deadline to now seeing a team and team mariw and make an addition. I think he might get itchy and and try to make some additions as well. Not For net I think Millard fat a dad's Day as the two strong one and one bees and switch off from their out but maybe he adds another forward, another dept piece to slot in and maybe take sword out spot. Or Yeah, I mean I think he's gonna be aching to make an addition. It's a really interesting division, especially because this week they take up three of the five slots in our top five. It's avalanche at one, eighty sevens at to Protec at three, express at for little fires at five, no receiving votes for for one. Division Two have three of the five spots. That it just shows you how strong at the vision is. So now we move over to the EH LP to reset where things were at the end of this past week. We had the railers at number one, the avalanche at number to, the Rangers at number three and the lumberjackson number for. This is interesting as well because the rangers and railers had a really close match up on Saturday night. That was a three victory for the Rangers. The avalanche, I believe, split their games, including a loss to the seahawks. The lumberjack split their games. Of the warriors. Where do we go here? I think he put the apps up top a little bit. You put the APPS past the railers at number one, I think so, and then railers fall to two or fall two? Three? Problem? I mean probably three, because Bj are things up and beat two ABS or the railers, you just said. I'm sorry. Yeah, so I wouldn't put the team. I wouldn't put the railers ahead of them that they just lost to them. I just feel like this. These rankings have been so interesting the P because every week somebody beat somebody in the top four but not but nothing's happened enough outside of the top four to get somebody else in. Does that make sense? And we didn't have a ton of premier games as a whole last week, I mean when we were picking for fantasies, kind of a slim pickens for who's going to say ours beating the Seahawks on the railers? Yeah, you can put that. Would say put them at too. I wouldn't put that I'm saying. I wouldn't put the railers ahead of them...

...because they're the thrillers Lost Beach are, so why would you put them ahead of the team that they lost to? Yeah, which I think we're on the same page. They are railers at three. Is there any debate over ABS at one or Rangers at one? No, I think Rangers, Rangers two, ABS one. Okay, sounds right too to whoo. WHO's for? WHOOOOOOOOO? You just I think you just get leave the Lum Beach, I think. I think there's not much else that happened to really push anybody past them. there. Didn't do and the same thing. They didn't do too too much to really fall out either, so they kind of can just sit there. Yeah, the VER mom, I'm Jackson, your next hottest team, and then the HLP looks a lot like the HL. There's only a few hot teams and a few teams that are kind of play in some middleing hockey right now. I would say if the seahawks had won both of their games this weekend, or all three other games, I should say, because they had a matchup with the Rangers, the wolves and the avalanche, maybe that bump them in crazy game they had with the wolves. That was on Friday. They went all the way to a shootout still scoreless. It was nothing, nothing until the shootout. I was never really not a single puck went into the net until the shootout. Like I know Vicky would say that's very, very boring, but I would say it's an old so what do you count with? That counts a shutout, just like in the NHL, because I know Mark Hamberger and Henricklon quiz had the dueling shutouts where wanted to shootout scoreless. So even though one of them lost, they still both got the shutouts. Is that the case in the EHL? That's that's an interesting that's a really good question. I feel like. Did we have this last year? Deal was there's some. Well, let's let's pull up the let's see what our website said. I guess that's why we have the website. They have a shutout checked off for James Williams, who was a net for the wolves. It doesn't listed as a shutout for rally birch, for the SEAHAWKS. So because you lose one nothing, so your technically that's not a shutout. No, but I think Anthony's right. I think it. But Jeff, the look at everything. If you win in a shootout, remember, shootout goals don't get counted as regular season. Both regular season goals. Correct. That is true. Oh God, let this is like going back to our debate of they lost for three or they lost three four we've been having, Dude, years. Don't even start. We already already started the door. You already hit the record button. Past my bedtime. We go down that path. I won't stay tonight. So I'll be and you're the only ones on the you say the winning they lost for three, and then all these three are all against the are you on our side too? More? Yeah, I will shoot the high so justin in it. Oh okay, so let me just take the zoom now. I'm going to move everyone on my screen around. So now on this side it's on the left side, myself, Jeff and Lauren. On the right side it's Justin an Anthony Slot up Hollywood squares. We all move up a spot. Some people they moved down. So let's work exactly to recap. So to recap, but we just did in the EHLP. We're going ABS at one, Rangers at two, railers at three, lumberjacks at for nobody receiving votes. Jeff brought up the shootout. I need to talk about my shootout because for the second year in a row, I finish in second place at the jbt night shootout with the wolves. Kind of tough, kind of tough. Have to admit. I definitely was facing the harder of the two goalies, considering the goalie that I wasn't facing their alternating every shot. Right. The goalie that I wasn't facing is actually a defenseman for the P team. Oh and I'm...

...not going to pronounce this name Right, so I'm gonna you know I'm going to do. I'm going to share my screen and whichever one of you wants to pronounce this name right, you can, because I'm not going to. Oh yeah, this kid mean it. I'm sure looking her chops to try it out. Okay, so this kid was in net against the other shooter. Oh, oh, wait, they cold be, because these who calls, damn it, what you just said. Sure, I called his name and blush showcase I had a wolves give him was a fun one. You know this week you cos. So we get out there for the first round, which includes everyone that raised money and you get a puck for participating. You get an additional pock for every one thousand dollars that you're raised. So in that first intermission, if you score one of the plucks that you're given, you go on to the second round, which is what becomes sudden death. So of the eight of us, there were four that moved on. There was one that I don't even know if he's skated to the crease. He couldn't move fun skates, but it was it was a great time. Right. I faced, all right, Anthonie. Say His name again, O cantie's who you calls. Okay, I faced him. Hohoda, I think I faced him for all three shots in the first intermission, or at least two of them, because I scored my goal against him in the first intermission. The first time I went down I was like God, this kid's tall, because he must have been six foot seven howe. Yeah. So then in the second intermission, actually flashback first intermission. We get off, the four of us are excited that moving on to the next round and Brett trieder caused me over and he goes, I got your move for the second round and I go okay, he goes. You really gotta sell the slap shot and get the goal in a bite and then go wide and just shoot into the empty that so I went first and the second round and it looked like an NHL, the video game, when your controller like freeze right had I had my arm up like this for like four seconds and the goalie just laid out, hujakovs just laid down and I shoot it right on the net and Brett, you can't see on camera, Brett is on his bed with his arms like. I told you so, I told you so. So everybody else misses in that round except for the guy that won. And that's when they started putting there you sixteen goalie against me, and the defense of went against the other guy, the you sixteen goalie. I hope plays Ahl next year. Maybe it's just me. He was nasty that I didn't score again and and he the winner. Chat obviously did. He's a two time champion. But they raised over thirty grand like phenomenal, absolutely unreal event. Place was packed, like absolutely packed. Meryl Faye, Wow, I felt like I think it's a coach. It packed. I had like I can't deny it right, because people that saw it online of like, okay, this is like a cello, like it was like crazy. It felt like I hike one of my high school games. There's so many people there. They always they always have a good turn out. I was having engagement anxiety, so I couldn't tune in. That was the night before I left for my big trips. I was like I was watching lumberjacks. So I was busy there. Lumberjack Serena is actually she quite nicely have. I think they have some of this paint on their rice of like a bunch of the rings that I've been to the season and they definitely have the best music. I love music. Arena. You got. Need you on the look. You can send it just if a loo Jez heard that. Like Alo had the beats going for the whole little fires apple cores series. So many clips really? Then? Yeah, I do. I have to make a post, honestly, Jeff. So see, but when you when you see the second go, you're going to be like why you really sold that slapshot me of controller, of controller dead. You're doing the backs around to baby, as we like to say. But like it was like it was. It's still...

...a good does right and and the guy who who won, like, compared to me, I raised twenty two hundred. He raised a little over five grand. So like like, oops, should have won. Great Shot, right. Wasn't anyone. We know her. It was a lie. He's a local, local guy, local guy. You gunna have a wig, a mullet wig going. So it was. It was. He had the part, he was looking the part, and I got to give the team's a lot of credit, because the team stay on the bench during the intermissions and you guys are so I'll tight. Where your pants they're? They weren't that tight. I have to address this now because the guy kept me for an otherwise. Did you shooting skinty? Jeez, you're shooting skinny. It's throw. I had it actually gee jeans on. They were my regular jeans, which are not skinny. Jeene lease, are dungeries or no? What? Oh my God, rebus listening will not know what the UNGREAS are. Oh, they're part, they're probably Jeff, come on, they're probably straight. The rat far wears Lee degrees, but you know what I'm saying, like they're just jeans. I don't know, but jeans, all right. They heard their look as like Jesse Thompson, WHO's the father of John Bradley, who passed away and they have this whole event because of him. Jesse was on the MIC. He's like during Easter intermission, like kind again, the crowd fired up when the person was going to shoot, and one time when I missed, I literally almost fell over laughing because and he's like and here goes neel again with pants that are twenty eight wast in, twenty eight length, and I was like, Oh my God, he just say that out loud, like I wouldn't be able to fit one leg and in a pant that side. Just see the flood it was. It was glossome time. There was an awesome time and I can't wait to do it again next year and hopefully not get second place next year. So, but one thing I did not get second place in this past week was fantasy. So let's get to the e crew fantasy challenge. He's alive to it. I'm so alive. It's time for the e crew fantasy challenge and the ecrew fantasy challenge is presented by bio steal the sport drink of the UJO. Use the Promo Code you show. That's es how for twenty five percent off when you check out at biosteelcom. Our video of the big Mac from last week probably the best interaction we've had of all videos so far this year. Pay His parents chest ate it up right. And and and Jeff. To your credit, everyone knows how to pronounce it correctly now even Tom Willis didn't will. Like I said, it's so many name corrections recently too, because for some people who apparently still didn't know, looking at you ducks, it's Ryan Bro we filled in a lot of people on that. We've had. I still don't know if it's how you guys are sing, it's Evan or Evgen, because I was talking to some of the ducks today. They say they some of them have said it's Evgen. I don't know what to believe at this point. I might have to find the kid back. So I'm pretty sure. I heard from Rutt himself it is of yen. Okay, we had to confirm with the source themselves. I called him a former league, but that's the biggest conclusion of this season. Asked the player themselves and if they don't know, literally I do it before every end. It doesn't matter if it's a basic name. I'm literally like, all right, tell me your name and then, if it's like some of the more difficult ones where they have a bunch of letters them, like all right, tell it to me like three times and then I got to think of through. Like some people, it's like some of these names you think are basic and would be a certain way and they're completely different afterwards and you just don't it doesn't make sense, but you go with it. Back to know how also, I know what I caught too after that was so, were you combining connor mccowell and Connor MC Mack tonel, because there's Connor Coward New Hampshire, vlgp. HMM.

I thought about it. I was like wait, he was trying to what I have. I have no idea right what he eyes in our heads do I called. I've called guys from like she's from, like the Jeff. I call him the Connecticut oiler. Still sometimes I alway. Yep, you and I had more issues with Nick Oh to Jockamo. Never I think at one point during the files I call them DG AKAMO. Do you just jo got to my hand. He's still on the you. So he's somewhere. I saw him. He's somewhere else now and I but freaked out a trevors. To Recap, will start with Jeff, because Jeff picking first for this week. This past week, Lap said Jonathan laps I got him four points. Dominic Metro got him six points. Nathan Miller Fifteen Justin Guelph got me a hat trick earlier in the year. To not get jeff hat trick this time, if you want. And nothing from Max Morris, which means he'll get points this week. Yeah, definitely. After game got me zilts. I've turned into deal all the sudden. Oh my God, who do you got this week, Jeff? All right, so, as I said you guys last night, it's the Hashtag Yev's team. Here come the Yev's. My utility is Eddie's grigoryevs from the New England wolves, who's been an excellent addition since calling Laconia his home and Meryl Faye Arena in particular, that Pack Barn. That was over the weekend, and let's hope that I think. I don't think Eddie's controller breaks as much as deal rapids does, though he seems he sees to put some box in the net it's got thirteen points in seventeen games. Now Grigoryev's and wait, and now we're doing this name episode. We said, I think it was lauren that figured out. It's GREGORV's or Grigoryev's. Yeah, it's great. Ms. What does he have to ask him? rigger lass is so nervous. Toe Like wigger, you ready? I'm like wait, and I went doing like please say again, like what is it? I'm like I have, like I had to have him say it so many times, like this is a lot of letters. Grigoryev's. Everybody write that down. Grigoryev's. And it's Eddie or Eddie's. is He is the s plural or is that silent? Is that it sound? Eddie, Eddie, Eddie, grillys, Eddie, Eddie. Here's Eddie's, Eddie's Eddie's. Any who, moving on, my God. Well, I have to go to this weird I'm a bounce all round this this this week, because you know, it's nine PM. I mean, yes, but of it, I'm telling me. So let's see where you go next. I'M gonna go to my p Duh. Okay, that's whither. It's my Yev's. It's my other. Yeah, if I got Nick Vasiliev's to say that was right. Right, yeah, still Ya from thank you, Anthony. All right, so it's again battle of the Yev's. We're got the YEV's coming to coming to team meet pills, and then I'm where my plf hat today because I've picked to Philadelphi. Little flyers at themselves quite the weekends down at Lincoln Financial Fields. I mean, wait, it's not where the Eagles PA trying now, the Phidelphi Eagles. Last week Will Bay's up to twenty nine points, even if you take the apple core weekend out. Last from last weekend. Bovee's been unbelievable for Philadelphia since coming over, I believe from the way both Bobs, Oh my God, I know that one's Boveet. So Adam Oas for hut, for them since April, I remember in first April showcase and he's just been on it absolute ter ever since. Even at all star weekend he was just having a grand ol time. He was putting pucks in left. All right, he's being a great bench guy, getting all the guys laughing and Turpin talking about the Muffin man like kid. It's just I don't want one. Anthony Larusso ALO is a big Fan of Adam Bovee. So come on, Dadam, Adam, ope, come on down, Adam Bove anyway. And then for goalie's just going to continue this...

...pinball. and Joseph Hedson for PLF is also been I picked him. I had to look. It's been like a month since I picked him, so he's coming back. I hoping get me someone's like he did for what was it not Neil? Someone had him last week. One of you humans in this square in front of it? Any One? Any who? Defense the betsman last but at least declad house wanted to pick him last week. He is a great defenseman and I hope he continues his greatness this year. It was father's a big listener to the podcast. WHAT'S UP, Mr House? And he's up to twenty points in thirty three games. He's got seven of those points on the power play. This ledge committed as well. Olivier revere, revere, because other movie are coach today, actually one of my games. Any who. Moving on. WHO's next? Okay, moving on to Anthony. Anthony, you do not have to go in the order of that. Jeff did utility, Premiere forward and Goalie. D I don't think anyone's ever announced the picts like that. I had to go to the yes. That's why the Oh my God. So Jeff had twenty five points. Anthony had twenty five point six, which is the second week in a row where Anthony had less than a point more than somebody else, which, as Justin Mus pointed out, makes a huge difference in the picking order. But to recap Anthony's points, Christian Malick, I thought was a great pick for you, Anton. They almost picked them. Myself didn't get anything for you. Douglas McGuire had two points. Joseph Henson got you sixteen, point six, Chris page five. Will get down to to Hoodie got this week. Okay. Also, Jeff. I thought that was really funny and I said, but Bova ends, just because kind of find me of the red wings when the when they had all the rushings and they pulled a prank on Keith PREMU and they put the OV at the end of his name so look like Freet Dreamvka. That's so the I mean they're not on the same team so much is your fantasy team, but that would be pretty funny. To see that actually happened. But let's without further ado, let's go to my fantasy team, starting off me being the eighty sevens homer that I am, I have to go with Robbie. See why I can it forward. This guy is on a tear right now. Four goals in his last two games, six goals for ecles in his last six games. He's been on fire. Picked up two goals today against team Maryland and he's going to be my choice for the the forward spot. At the fence, I have Corey Papouser. He has twenty three points in thirty three games. Picks up a lot of assists. He had a point in his last game against the Connecticut chiefs, so I'm excited to see what he will bring to the table. For Goalie, I'm going with Matt gover and but yes, cookie though. I gave you that tidbit, Jeff, because I remember walking behind him before showcase game and I saw, I say, cookie, dough on his mask and Isaac. Yeah, I think that was that was with. I forget we end up interviewing, but that was I think. We pulled a wizard I think, from that game for an interview and we saw that on there. You discovered and you yeah what I asked my said, why do you have cookie doing your mask? He goes, Oh, that's my nickname. I said, how long have you had that? Nike Ice Cream Better Jerry's. He loves ice cream. He said yes, and since he played mice so that nickname stuck around for him because, yeah, I mean, Hey, cookie dough ice creams my favorite. So gotta go with God favor if you have to. You have too much cookie to Ice Creamy kn't fend skinny sheets. We don't like cookie dough ice cream. I don't trust you. For the utility, dread degrees. For the utility pick I'm going with rhet heavy in and also just a quick fun fact. He made his debut with the ducks against...

...the eighty seven's and I was talking with the assistant coach, Jackson bursure, and I want to say it was the dick the night before they played against the eighty seven's, he had to pick him up from the airport. I want to say it was new work are port where they had to fly him in. Well, yeah, so b'sier picked them up. He was able to play against the eighty sevens. I thought you look pretty good in his debut. He's been playing just over a point per game. He will take my utility spot, but he got out of new work alive. Rus To be rough. Fuck, I would there last night at the Devil's game. It's fine, God, you made an not a life too empty when you've got to be luck. Yeah, airport alive. The rocks a great place. New York not so much credential center, I mean generate around. New Word probably has more people than Rhode Island. So I know you might not use that many people in one place. So my God, O, my God, true set to shape up from mass fake. Were Islanders. And Your Premiere Pick Honnor mccawe of the New Hampshire Avalanche. She has twenty three points in twenty six games. Offensively, he only had this one assist in his last four games. But it's like what Lauren always says. It's not always about if they've been hot. You got to pick a wine and they could get hot and I think he's one of those players. They have them on the premier slot. I like that. And it's Connor mccaw he wants not caught. Her back to them. Okay, thank you. Dad. So fairhouse of the for Lauren and and my roster from this past week, it almost turned into Jordan Camilla versus Connor macdonell. Jordan Camillar got her thirty points. NIC here. I'm so his Ko knocket me thirty points two weeks ago and I picked him for the first time. Anybody? Anko careery, three, Joe Centaurro five in bullock, nothing but a total of forty four. So who do you got this week? Lauren had some fun ones. I kind of picked. I doubled it once, kind of. I'm starting out at forward with Ryan Webb from the wizards. They're kind of kind of struggling to find their footing a little bit as of late, but I think when they get good they're really good. So I think it'd be fun to have the captain on my team. For Defense, I picked a really fun one from the wolves. He kind of churged me earlier this week actually for not including him in top plays, which I do feel bad about and I'm so sorry because it was very pretty gold that hid up showing me. That did not make the cut. So I would be taking it Julius Commandal. He's also a recent college commit he committed to curry, which is kind of funny considering he actually got to play against them at all star weekend. So that was cool for him and kind of neat that he ended up. They're for my goalies. I'm picking Josh Cootie from the lumbies. I'm excited to kind of pull them back and I've had him on my team before and he's pretty good for me. And the lumberjacks looked pretty good when I saw them this past weekend at Letty, so that was always fun to see and I was having a great time at their rink. So they actually might be seeing my grandparents some more. They said they really enjoyed the game, so they're going to maybe try to go to some more of those the season, so that'll be fun have some more fans in the crowd for them. For my utility pick, I don't know if anybody's picked him yet this season, but I'm taking Dallas to motto from the rough riders. He's been really good for them. I've we talked about Columbella and we'll talk about Karen Chong, but I don't think Dallas the motto gets enough credit. He's really good as well. He's right up there with combell. Lastly, so I'm excited to pull him in and for my p Pick, this is where I'm kind of double dipping and pouring from the lumberjacks P team. I'm taking Trent King. He was pretty good for Anthony, so I'm hoping he could do some good stuff for team low as well. So we'll see how that goes. And going...

...back to back pe picks from the lumber deck. So hopefully that pays off a little more this week. Not disappointed in hindle. He looked good. They all star Game Two, so I was hoping he would do some fun stuff for me on my team this past week. But so backs Morrison. Nothing me. The MVP quiet too much this past week, but hopefully this kid will do some fun stuff this week. I'm excited to have these guys. So for my week this past week, Cavando, who just got picked as a the end, who just got picked, and I had tyler sit in the cop as my p. They combined those three of them for four points. I mentioned before. Connor Mac and the'll got me twenty nine and then Ronin Mobi got me thirty one. Avalanche one. All four of their games he was in that for three of them. So in total that gave me sixty four points and I'm out of the basement now. But I'm not going to get ahead of myself because last time I last time I did that, I ended up eating my words and retreating all the way back from first place down to fourth place. So Am Not Lauren Smith. It's tight. Basically, she's run away and then the rest of us are just in a log jam two through four. or I thought that. I thought you were referring to my pants again. Anyways, for my pictures from my tas this week I'm starting at forward with the wizards, also like Lauren did. Cameron Collins is a recent addition for them. He's got six points in his first five games. Last year, defensively, I had declin Bronti for the longest time. He missed a good truck of time the season because of an injury, but he had two goals, the first two goals in that game for the chiefs against protech Nathan Miller. We talked about this last week on the podcast. I'M gonna try and pick him this week with the hopes that I can finally use the graphic that we've totally jinxed him with that. Has the shutout record ready to go. So, Nathan, I hope you heard that. William pray as my utility. I think he's by one of the more underrated forwards in this league. Will Lead Sea coast with thirty two points, so and they have three games themselves. And then I don't know how many games these teams will play. And the PA. I will get to that here in a second, but I'm gonna go with Jeffrey Boker for the eighty sevens. They're supposed to have a home and home set with the renegade. Hopefully at least one of those gets played. With that, though, let's get over to our what to watch for segment before we wrap things up. Here's what you watch for this week in the east. Show what to watch forth presented by Hockey TV, the official streaming platform for your EHL and EHLP action through the two thousand and twenty one, two thousand and twenty two season. I have not said this one time yet this season, Jeff, but it is about to. Poor Godd no, I gonna say it because right what you were just saying about when you're given the gloomy do about it. Those Games can I was gonna say. Is it going to pour snow like us at all the time, though, thanks to you, like for we're gonna get over a foot of snow. That classifies as pouring snow. I'm sorry, like just sound. That's gonna that no one. No one likes to sound of when I say I got a hard time for every time I said last year. I also got a hard time for bringing up bringing up Maine probably about sixty seven thousand times in the podcast last year. Do so well this you, though, with with the future pouring of the snow, I don't know if it's really easy for us to predict or say what games to watch. There's been a number of cancelations so far removed a lot of games around. For example, the avalanche and lumberjacks were supposed to play Saturday someday. That's now a Sunday Monday series. So be sure to keep an eye on all of our social channels for updates on the schedules throughout the as you guys met in the game, counts of kind of dropped down, especially in the EHLP, because of what the forecast has for Saturday. But if...

...we do get the games that are on the schedule off, at least at the EH LP level. I'm really watching that avalanche versus lumberjack series because the the the battle that's going on right now in the EHLP in the north between the avalanche, the lumberjacks and the warriors is kind of almost turning into a let's not have to travel to Vermont for the playoffs type battle, because remember in the playoffs, if like abody are over, well it's a matter of if you go over a hundred and twenty five miles door to door, the higher seed host every game. So I'm really watching that two games set closely because there's some big points on the line of the Games that we currently have circle. Guys, is there anything that you're watching? Well, if it happens, because you said some of them like you canceled with this now. I think if it happens, the in the P the red train blue train game this weekend should be quite a fun matchup. Both both in the EPH those teams played together. It's always a fun time and it's The p kid have been putting on quite a show. I think one of the last times they played was when in Parker had that like two hundred foot, just like coast to coast goal in overtime. Just gross. So I'm excited to see what happens for them next because I know he's been in a bit of a scoring girl lately and I know he's been itching to get back on there. So that'll be fun to see. Plus the to those teams are always just so good. I mean to be safe, how about a couple of games tomorrow, because we know it's not going to pour snow yet tomorrow, unless that changes overnight and then we're screwed. But how about a little flyers, rough riders? We just saw the rough riders pick off New Jersey. Could they pick off another hot team? A little flyers and then se obviously there's a new encoder at the bick. I'm going to the bich for Rangers seahawks. Coach DiCaprio confirmed this evening. So go watch ranger seahawks. Maybe need Millard gets that shut out that he needs probably not real because I just changed it, but you Jenson in thisially by building that graphic before Doington, so it's all your fault. I need called me. I get a game to watch. Anthony will have some US I'm kind of intrigued by the value junior warriors and east coast wizards. I think that should be a pretty good matchup East Yep battle some yeah, he's also going with the it's not snowing yet right the tality. So I said before, keep an eye on our social channels for updating the schedules throughout the weekend. If the Games don't happen this weekend, we're kind of just pushing them back to it to a future date. But obviously the playoff push is on APP both levels.
