On this week's episode we paid tribute to the two thousand and fifteen sixteen champion, Ryan frew. We review the previous week of action in both the EHL and the EH LP and shuffle things up with our next set of picks for the e crew fantasy challenge. But first we kick things off with an interview featuring Dan and Margaret Hickling, the League's main photography team for the two thousand and twenty one season. I'm joined now by Dan and Margaret Hickling, AKA hickling images. How's it going, guys? Good, doing great new I'm so loudly you're down here. It's been a process to make this all happen, but it's been it's been a journey. It's going to grind a little bit. How has the COVID impacted hickling images? Well, for one thing, we kick order Canada, which is a huge part of what we do. It is working, you know, across the border and because we live five minutes from the border in Buffalo and go down to the river, yeah, we're gonna look along in the lead Canada, I think about swimming across. But but you know, to that end it's only affected us to the extent that it's affected everybody else in the hockey realm its games were canceled because someone is tested positive. Well, that affects you, but we're affected in the secondary way. So so you know, what happens to us is kind of almost a trifle compared to it is happening to the other people. And I think for me, I saw you guys last in I want to say it was Exeter for our Januation showcase, where we had no idea that two months later we would not be meeting in Providence. We were supposed to meet in Providence, whether any other events other than the frozen finals. That guy canceled out our big annual events for you. Oh, plenty of them, plenty of use a don't come on the RHEL Cup, Rachel Gold Cup, any any number of other things. Stanley Cup playoffs, although they resumed in Buffalo, wouldn't need it. So really, I guess that didn't bother us at all. But but yeah, no, it certainly did throw a wrinkling a lot of things. If Shut Down College hockey, we would have probably done some college tournaments at the end of the year, shut down some of the state tournaments. We were actually at the Michigan State Tournament when positive tests begin to occur in the NBA and then the Nhl close down, and then so Mr get hockey, Michigan Hockey close down, and so we came home. That's the last time we were in Canada was the middle of mission. Middle March. Yeah, is counting. I over the day too. Was March twelve for us, you know. So and we're going to do the New York State Tournament, the National Championships from USA hockey. Those were canceled. We would have been done doing those USA hockey development camps. You do those every year. That's right in our backyard in Buffalo. No go this year. So yeah, but you know, so we were basically off the ice ten days, ten days right till about the first part of July, and then rinks begin to kind of cautiously open and the NHL began to put some combines together and so just kind of get out of the house a little bit. We went to Minnesota, we went did that, you know. So we've been basically shooting steadily since July. It's just not everything that we would be shooting. So it's given us an opportunity to shoot some other things. And obviously one thing that we always talked about is the different number of ranks that you've been to. For me, I had no idea why at first, when we were taking our pictures for the Allstar team last year, you pulled out the two and the seventeen. But Bedford, the Ed Sports Center, we took those pictures. That was the two hundred and seventeen rank that you take in pictures in. Now you guys are up to two hundred and fifty eight years now you have the two hundred and fifty four. Is there a number you're trying to get to just love keeping track. Infinity he if any? I don't know...

...there of course now, because I mean will we get to every rink? No, no, not likely, but we want to live to get to fifty five. Scheduled to do that tomorrow in Bitterford. Then after that we will hope to get to fifty six. Okay, you know, this isn't a fun level quirky thing that Dan started again all of a sudden one day he said, you know, this is the fifty four wort ring. We were Don I'm like what? And so we started naming them off. I'm like, Oh man, I'm not going to have you name all of them, but let's let's let's go through some that stand out for you. Is there? Let's start with, you know, favorites, like favorites first, or there's some that you just say it won't be another one. We go back there because we're already been there, but I cannot wait to get to that ring. Oh, can't wait to get to it. Well, some of them, some of the more interesting rinks, are some of the prep school rinks. You know one thing, blue tarp walls. Yeah, yeah, meddle of winter. Yeah, that was what Northampton there were, guess renovating at or whatever, but they didn't close it off. Is for tarps down where they're in February and they're you know, we're shooting and it's you know, it's I also know there have been times with markets worked in the car we do. You have Wi fi and I think we have a Panini maker in there too, and and that sort of thing. But but the very first one in the whole list was actually Columbus Ohio, the Ice House, which the first. Yeah, the first thing we did was actually the Columbus Blue Jackets Development Camp in two thousand and twelve and that was the very first one. And you know, between then and now we've been in UMP team number of NHL Rink shooting NHL Games, but also in very, very humble, small, little little rinks. My favorite is one we didn't shoot. Do you know what it is? No, humbold Oh, well, yeah, to humbled. That was amazing. Yeah, don't tell the story. What do you mean? Was Story? What we saw there? How we all don't there, the whole village, the whole city town, whatever it is, is really small little Berg and Saskatchewan is dedicated to humble. I mean humble for everybody where is their jersey, everybody where. You know it the whole thing. The rink is open, you can go in any time and it's sort of like a shrine, I would say, to the round Goos. Lots of memorabilia, signs and people are welcoming. But interestingly they don't have a gift shop there. You have to go to another part of the town. So it was it was just really moving and that we were moving that I expected. Yeah, we had the place ourselves, so we're just during the middle of the day that it wasn't a game day, and we walked in and we just kind of made our ways through about every inch of the place and of course there's many banners up, you know, commemorating, you know, both those who lost their lives and those who survived the crash, but certainly everyone was affected by it and you're right, it was really one of the most moving, moving things we've been to that outside. Tell him about the sticks there were next to the ticket window, I guess it was. There were like probably ten sticks from the actual team members. There are sticks sitting there. So and my parents still have a stick outside their house. That has humble brocles written on it and it I don't even remember how many years it's been now, but it's just something that affected all of us. I actually had thought my mind of bringing up that rank because you guys have been to so many different ranks. I was like maybe they've been to that one without naming names. Now let's go opposite end of the spectrum. Had there been a few ranks that you've been to and you've said, man, it's too dark or it's too cold, I don't want to come back here ever again in the north country and New York, that we will never go shore again. Yeah, there was. There was. That isn't a village called watertown for the Renault. That one did something to do with the Federal Hockey League. Prints are basically like your kids. Even if they're ugly, you still got to love them. So everyone seems to have its own character. There's a little bit of charm to each one of them. Obviously every one of that, every one of them, but many of them, and certainly many in New England, many within the HLF woodprint are the community centers. Yeah, it's the middle of that town and that's really too incounter, you know, and really true, we were in where was it? The little really fancy rink in the middle of that little tiny town. We went through a snowstorm. I he's my memory. It was...

...one of ours. It's random access memories. That problem. It was a little, teeny tiny town. It was on the northern shore of Lake Ontario. It was snowing like crazy. We drove like twenty miles from any place anybody recognized. In their houses were like these little tiny, you know, middle class houses, and then here's this rink anyway. Yeah, and they may have been big homo. No, no, no, no, that was it was in Ontario, not in CABAC. What. There's any commas? Interesting? You have to take a ferry to get there. Okay. And then, speaking of travel, like obviously there's been a million trips. When we were talking about scheduling, I like a couple weeks here for you guys, you didn't care about how many hours it was at all. Yeah, have there been any road trips like a snowstorm where you said like like I gotta, we got to stop the car, like we're not going to make it. Never, unless you're we were in Quebec during that really bad snowstorm okay, February the car, you couldn't tell what color was. You can really see the lights was covered and we plowed on. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's just sort of thing were you know, we're we love what we do. You know, in in people that we've come to know and to work with, you know such as such as yourself and the rest of the eastern hockey league. Folks are friends to us, family to us, and it doesn't ever seem like a chore, doesn't Ever Seem like I mean, yes, there's effort to it, yes, there's commitment to it, yes, you have to work hard to do what you do and to do it excellently, but you know, the end of the day, it doesn't ever seem like we've worked any any days in our lives. Well, and this is something that you've only been doing for eight years. Eight years. What sparked the idea? Well, I don't know. How much of our story do you know? I know that we've been together. You haven't been together for as long. Right. I was a teacher, I and I retired eight years ago, maybe nine, I don't remember, and Dan was a print journalist in Maine. Poor guy. We want, we want. It is the paper he worked for fired their photographers, handed him a camera and said take your own pictures. So by the time that we got back together we had been sweethet, high school sweetheart. So we were got for fifty years ago. Yep, we're apart for forty two years. So anyways, doesn't seem like any time. He was like really interested in cameras and I was sort of a loose ends because after you retire, sort of, and you've been working all your life, it's sort of like, Whoa, what are you gonna do? And I wasn't into anything else. So I said we got to do something, and he's like he started taking photos before I retired. But what happened was I said to him, let's buy you some really real equipment, because he had like junk. Yeah, I'm sure it's a cameras, and that's where it started. Yeah, and we started at first we were doing baseball, Lacrosse, how we could tell you lacross stories and hockey, and the hot hockey became the primary one in the Lacrosse Litta cross kind of fizzled out because of some incidences with native American group. So he's it was my Fou Pot, not anybody else's? Yes, but and then baseball just there wasn't time. No, the the doors just swung open for hockey. You know, we just beat me all. Their Eli prospects became part of the picture really early and we happen to have photos that were very useful to them. And you know, again, it's more relationship that formed with those folks than us going looking for anything. We've never looked for a claim. Just going to say that's that's like our our big, major thing is that we have never ever supplicited a job, even even hickling images. Didn't you guys go real hits? Have a real company? Really isn't. It's just it's just a name we use just out of convenience. But there is no hickling images, like we're not. We don't have it Lx, we don't, we don't, we don't. We don't sell our photos. We sell our services, but we don't tell our photos. And you know. So we're we're very non company. Right, like if a college or some I a college or an organization like say you you want to some obscure a picture from us, which is our specialty, and you know it was one photo and you it was you were not, it was going to be obvious us that was not going to be easy for you to pay for it to what we'd say to you if, if you donate to some food link or food bank or something else, will give you the photo as long as you give us credit. We don't do that for everybody or...

...if you wanted like the little good. We don't do it for individuals. So we do yoursell to we can request from clubs and Sach who maybe they've drafted somebody, maybe they've signed someone, maybe somebody from the HL is gone and we're usually the only one that has to school. We're definitely known out the photos. They'll come to us and you know, we do have tout a value on what we do, but it doesn't have to be a monetary value. But, Margaret, are very passionate about feeding the needy and know we feel very, very called to to really meet that need as much as we can, and so when I use our photos in that way, when the opportunity arises. So you're a club that does come to us, they may need a photo. And some say again, if you're willing to donate to a food bank in your neighborhood, in your locale, not ours, but your locale, and whatever the amount, then we're happy to provide that photo. But otherwise no, I never realize that you guys never had to solicit to get more work. I forget how he even came to our relationship and I don't know. I think I just came across. You guys have an event once, but obviously the big one as sticks Aus alite prospect. When you go to any players page, I know it's not a company, but you see hackling images across the picture. That's just to keep there's a water mark based and it's just to keep people from stealing it. So yeah, and you know, we do try to kind of keep tabs on that. We really don't pay attention to the kids much. Okay, we know that the kids steal the pictures. Yeah, put them on. There is to instagrammer whatever those things are, not that, but that's we started. Just turn a blind eye to that because we understand we have kids of her on, the seven of them, but they're all adults. But Um, it's more like like when organizations start stealing photos and putting them on social media, then we call them on it. We really do, because it's and that's why the water arks are otherwise. But that's why we also came up with a means for them to get them legitimately from us, that that being the food food efforts. But then off of that, like how how much has elite prospects helped you get all the work that you have now? Well, it's been probably the major source of people knowing who we are. Okay, and then you know, because we don't know who we are, so we asked them. But that's I would say that's probably demons. It's great. Obviously prospects is a tremendous motor cache in the hockey world. And and yet it is not. That's only big, but it's also ry. That only macro. It's micro. Yep, because every kid who played, you know, for the avalanche and the seahawks this afternoon, every one of them has a page. Every one of them goes DP to look at their page. Yep. Every one of them wants the greatest photo they could ever get on their paid yep. And you know, and you know, Rinse and repeat, for how many teams and leagues and so arms so forth, and and we happen to be in a position to kind of maybe make that happen. So so, yeah, it has open many doors for us and you know, we're glad to go through them. But again, it's all based on relationships to if we didn't if we didn't feel like the EHL was a quality organization with quality people that we've come to know, such as yourself and you know, then we would say good luck with that. You know, nice to see you. But because of that, because of how we feel about the AHL or about the USAHL or about the Canadian Hockey League, who do a lot of things with when we feel, you know, because of that, then that that makes all everything possible for us. Oh what up? Awful when you just said. I know I've had coaches reach out to me so I can reach out to you because they don't like the picture that they have on their eppays. They want to they want a better angle of themselves. But everybody wants to study bolling. But for study ball? Yeahs, I've already been Scott everybody and I don't know for for one final question. I know you kind of touching this earlier. You want to get to two fifty five to hundred and fifty six. You know, you have a passion for it still, as what point are you going to say are enough, so enough, we're done taking pictures. So you have any end goal in mind? Or is not? Really you have to ask the all money. That's that's the idea. Yeah, you know, I mean we have absolutely no thought of shutting down or closing and we were both sixty six, will be sixty seven very soon, but thankfully we're very healthy. Thankfully we have a great deal of vigor for what we do. We love each other so we we love being together, we love doing it together that if we didn't do that, then there every's would be. Yeah, but deals, so long as God gives us breath and as long as people are tired of...

US coming, coming through their other doors, you know we'll just keep doing well. I know we're at the end of your first week road trip. Other week coming up we have you for two events this year as well. When the League knows that hickling images, as I like to say, is coming, they get excited. So we're so happy to have you guys here and be great partners with the League and take every come on the podcast. Glad to be here, Neil. Thanks so much for having us thanks again to Dan and Margaret Hickling for coming on the podcast this week. Aka A hickling images, one of the most popular names. If you go to elite prospect summers, every single player has a picture on their profile with hickling images across the front. Definitely listen to that. End of you, if you didn't get to before, a lot of interesting points that they made. Graces. I think that they were high school sweethearts and then spend all that time apart and now are back together traveling from rank to rink. As you heard them say, they're going to cross off ranks two hundred and fifty five and two hundred and fifty six on this trip. So they have seen all that and then some. So let's welcome in, though. Now, my e crew. We're recording under some kind of interesting times. Right now. Brittany is in the pitch black. Hello, here I am, live from nine thousand six hundred and twelve. I'm one with the pilgrims. Here's my candle, not that anyone at home could see, but here am there for all of you interested. Brittany cooked our dinner by stove. Talk to them. I had to light the stove with the lighter. We are recording this Wednesday night and there was an intense thunderstorm. Was it thundering or just raining? It was lightning, thundering, trees down, rain the whole nine yards. Yeah, went justin. Listen to this. He's gonna be like, all right, deal with a hurricane like ideal with you within. We've all been there, done that's the way moods kindle. I was IT DOWN IN NEW JERSEY? You know we experience or tornado not too long ago, Jefferson, I'm not going to. I so it was a little scary for Jersey, but for Brittany, I don't know. Is anyone else like just like picturing, like if you guys ever seen the movie the village and Chamlion, Ye, know that's one. I'm picturing, like Brittany is like in that lake setting, like the village. Yes, it's almos. We must make haste. Yes, it looks like she's about to like just disappear and like we'll just go down to a three person podcast. At sounds going here. So, but I digress. Luck we know bad rother down here, ever, and hope everyone else as well. Excellent reel, like fault to God. There we go. So before we get started tonight, I didn't know where I wanted to talk about this on the podcast, but you obviously saw the post that I made the other day from our social media accounts about Ryan frew. It is I couldn't find words. I think was the actual tweet that I sent on my own twitter afterwards. Because yeah, Ryan wasn't the other league, the USPHL, but for my first few seasons in this League Ryan was the head coach and GM in the New Hampshire junior monarchs. And you can throw a rock. Had to be a pretty good throw, but you could basically throw a rock from the ice ten to try to those two banks are that close to each other. And you know, as I always use when I have to make those posts, hockey family, Hashtag hockey family, because it really is one big hockey family. And I don't want to get into too many details about what happened to Ryan and and his passing. Obviously that's a that's his privacy and I hope that everyone knows that it wasn't covid. There's a lot of tweets that have come in saying another, another victim of Covid, but it was other health issues and it happened very fast and I take a step back and I post that Monday night and then I see everything come in and I wake up to the next day and it's like it's crazy how much one individual in this sport can have an impact on everybody else. Like for me personally, like I was in the League for a year when he helped make my job full time. I know that sounds we have, but my first year the League they said, let's let's see where we got, let's see what this league is still at, will call you part time. And he had such an impact I rode with him down to Philadelphia for that Little Flyers Monarchs Championship series, which was the two thousand and fifteen sixteen season that the monarchs won all three games, two of which, though, went to overtime. Like that was a really good little flyer seeing that they beat to win the championship. And it's just like, you know, I know Britney's a few years longer than myself, Jeff and Kyle, but Ryan was forty years old. Like that's just like it's crazy to think about and with everything else going on right now and like, yeah, there are days when I wake up and I'm like, Jesus, I've spent so much time scheduling this or canceling that. Like at least the four of us and...

...hopefully for people listening at home, we have our health like it's all we can we can be appreciative of right now, because to see what happened to him and to leave behind three kids like that, at three very young kids, it's just I wanted to make sure we touched on it and passed on more condolences, but I can only imagine what his wife is going through right now. As you know, I came in I started doing the HL Games though a year before you came in, when Jeff Nyeguard was still it was Jeff Nygard, Mark Humbel and Ryan was still big part of the League. The monarchs were a huge part of the hl back then. So we're the cyclones and some other teams that we had, and and Ryan was just always one of those guys. We used to have showcases that try town arena all the time and, as you guys know, I still call games in the USPHIL I just saw him early March and of last season and he looked fine. You know, we just had our normal conversations and back and forth and I've just been thinking of a lot about him lately and, like you said, he's leaving a wife and three young kids behind and a lot of players that he's sent along the way. And you said, it's just it is. It's a huge hockey family. It's a really scary loss. I'm only nine years younger than him. When you see the one thousand nine hundred and eighty to two thousand and twenty on those pictures and memorials, it's just it does it shakes you up and it's that's the one thing I think two thousand and twenty is given us all, you know, as a silver lining that, like you said, you to take everything you know, don't take anything for granted. Live every day like it's your last. Ryan did that. Ryan coached every game like it was his last game. He always put in a huge effort. He always loved every single person, from his players to his coaching staff, to the ring staff, to broadcasters, to anybody and everybody. He was just you can't say enough about the guy and we're really we're really going to miss him and he told so many good stories to and Jeff. That really is when it hit for me when I saw that one graphic that the USPHL post that in they had one thousand nine hundred and eighty two to two thousand and twenty. I was like, Whoa, that just home. He saw about you talked about commitments. Fifty of the one thousand, one hundred and sixty eight they you see in our website. Fifty or hint like those are his placements. He talked you know, his first year he was in the finals. The very first year of the ehl he was in the finals, up to nothing on the northern cyclones. I think they lost in like triple overtime game three and you know hockey goes, you then lose the series afterwards, but a few years later to you know, get the redemption that he did. It's just I knew I wanted to talk about on this podcast. So I think this, I think this really does cover a lot and I hope that for anyone listening that that did know Ryan, you know, the same way jeff or I or anybody in the EHL did. Like it's it's a long road, you know, right now for his family and I know she's going to have a very strong support system and whatever league you're in. USPHL EHL like this one. This one really hits home. But with that, I think we should just start making our way around the show. It's time for this week segment of around the e show round. These shows brought to you by the junior hockey podcast, your home for junior hockey news, knowledge in nonsense. Check them out at tjh podcastcom. And as we begin making our way around the east show, we've kind of done the first few weeks is just go down the standings and you know, and I think I first brought this up with you guys, I was like, well, record on Monday or two day got to work. Well, we have to keep recording Wednesday because too much happens between record time and then we the post time. And the team that's in first place right now in the Neonland Conference, the Sea Coast Spartans. They weren't first place yesterday and therefore all would one. They have a point in every single game and either you love their new yellow home jerseys so you hate them. They're still for old. Oh that's we'll going to go to the WE'RE gonna have to shoot that over to kyle. Kyle and JUSTIN OUR JERSEY, Extra Jersey experts. So, Kyle, what do you think about those new yellows? Buddy, hey, you know what a wise man wants. told me. I might have said this on the last podcast, but I'd I'd rather win ugly than loose pretty. So God bless you, sea coast, because you guys are for on one, and I mentioned it in keeping up with Kyle. Y know, they're not just making a statement. It's a surprise. Am I wrong? I can put it around the word. It's a surprise, but I'm giving credit. It's do. Don't take a fence, sea coast, but I don't think any of us were expecting the Seco spartans beat for own one right now through two weeks second year and and a shutout victory today. Yeah, I mean I gets a good wallpole team and I feel bad for wall pall because don't cut out wallball and I have another team you shouldn't count out, but wall falls. That it. Well, yeah, I'll get some scheduled ure owen for like against really tough opponents to our clubster. Good, this is sorry. You played too much off the summer. I don't know. I'll leave it to look good. I hear is Commr Rab. I'll leave it at this. Good teams find ways to women. Yeah,...

...bad teams find ways to lose. As of now, the Seco spartans are a good team. Yeah, definitely. Party is hard. How they should making it to the top five power kings and well, there heard us. Well, let's one more comment about the spartans before we talk about top five, because we have to touch on that, which is wild still. Last year they went seventeen, twenty eight and one. Right now there all in one. It's a long year, but they are on a like, a really good path to surpass what last year, what they did last year. Did you see the sweet that Derek reaves, their broadcaster, sent out after the game today? Now, I don't love gifts and Britty knows that. Like if it's a really good gift, I'll appreciate it. Or a picture. Heat tweet tweeted the picture of just bricks inside a goal and was like this. I saw a little shopped this. This is rahets elect from today's game. He is a little legit. Just a pile of bricks in front of the night it's like, and hey, that kids won two games so far. They've beat the SEAHAWKS and they've beat the express and they have two wins against the eclipse. They have an oh shootout loss against the East Coast Wizards. Look out that. It's a team that Kurt Mallett in the offseason told me keep an eye on bread sea in this year. They're going to be one to be reckoned with. And to Jeff's point, do they want to be number five, because I have to bring this up. This is wild, guys. The first team that we had at number five was the Wallpole Express. In their one game at that ranking they lost by the Tue to the avalanche. So we move in into England wolves at the time, worth three at Oh the one game they had at number five, they lose to the seahawks three to one. So we have a curse at Marilyn, last Matt and curse the man and Cursey Hls, though, we move in team Carolyn. We move in team Marylyn at the time. Oh No, they lose their first game four hundred and twenty two to the little fuck. I don't know what to do. Get rid of that fits fun. It's not a top four of the league. That'll be and I'll become the one, that kid's curse. We've had three different number one so far, so we can kind of shut the touch on that because, as I mentioned, secost at four all in one, top of their division, four and one for both the wolves and the avalanche, a team that also was number one once this year. I'm not sure if you guys saw the broad the box score from Thursday, the first, you know, every day, plus together from right now, but the avalanche, I'm convinced, in that game had a hundred shots. Send a hundred shots towards the Gold Valley. Probably blocked about twenty five and the rest got through. I think the boss score says sixty seven days or something like that for Drew Blodgett and Mario Martin, Yellow says to me. I swear to God, they must have been a force field also behind him in that game the park would not go in. Wow, twenty seven shots in the first, twenty two in the second, eighteen and the third. Yep, sixty seven. You and Balley puts up thirty six shots. Yes, three goals they would and, as the wise man one said, I'd rather way ul dead Louise Pretty and I will be highlight for ten first went over it on the power plays. That's probably what killed them a game. That's what killed in that game. And I'm I'm looking up matchups, previous matchups while I'm calling the game, and I'm like what, how far back do I have to go? February twenty one, two thousand and eighteen, the last time valley had beat the New Hampshire avalanche rulers. Wait, you remember that first year, though, when Chris could not beat valley to say of his life. The very first year of the avalanche they lost, couldn't? Three shootouts to the valley junior warriors. Yeah, literally, and the following annual meeting Chris made a proposal to remove shootouts from the League and someone said, Chris, it's not my fault. We had twelve total shootouts and a quarter of them were your losses to the valley junior warriors in the showcases. He wants to abolish those because he's doesn't a great better, better, better the past couple of years. But the first year was like it was a comparable ruggle those. The only place they lost was it showcases. It's like three losses all season. There were different shook and we just touched on the number five slot. You look at the number one slot. The Rangers lose the one game they were at number one in the shoot out to the avalanche. The avalanche lose the one game they're aut number one to the value junior warriors. Hey, New Jersey Sevens, you're up next. You're up next. They're rolling. Hey, hey, no, will get will get down to the south. The other teams. To touch on, I know in keeping up with Kylie pointed out the Vermont lumberjacks. I think that they are. You guys can agree or disagree. I think they're quietly and no, most of the time they like fly low. Yes,...

...even like last year there was like under the shadow of Bjr, under the shadow of Alves, and they're hey, Jimmy's low key. Jimmy's low key anyways, because people low key. Yeah, seems like they have a good goaltender. Seems like they're deep down the middle of the ICE. Just saying. Do I like Vermont? Yep, and dude. They have new jerseys with them six flannel sleeve. Oh, I like those a lot. I need one of them. I won't, I won't comment on the jerseys. The toughest thing that Vermont has going for them right now, so that folks can understand the scheduling at home is they cannot go to a county that has more than four hundred covid cases and they cannot host a team in their building coming from a county that has more than four hundred cases. So they have to legit meet in a Green Zone where there's less than four hundred cases. And you look at the map and it's if you look in New England, there's not a lot of green. No, unless you're unless you're going to northern New Hampshire or northern northern main and there's there's not a lot of green. So I actually have a picture I'll text to you. Guys all, we're doing this kind to find a picture that I gets so many five tax life text I guess are at the old day with Massachusetts, was saying like what states they've updated, are allowed it and what are and everywhere in the world, everywhere in the US, is like red. And then, like you said, except for like Vermont, New Hampshire, made those seem to be the good areas. I mean things are a lot more spread out up there too. So yeah, rest of the US, is that a down it's just a bay. Oh M, I see that map like I think that's all right. I think that's Nan tucket that screen, but I don't know if there's a rank out there, so I don't know if he can go out. There's a ferry to get over there. It's a lot. We made it all the way here. We're going to be playing street hockey this afternoon, folks, and Jeff is on the call for this one. We're going to play on a ship today, if you don't get sea sick and they play over the work classics. A Zon a ship, so shit's do it. I'm not, you know, speaking of being quiet. You know, I didn't want, I told you guys before, I didn't want to get into too many details about what's on. Of Our teams are dealing with it, with the pandemic, but there's obviously, it goes without even having to say there have been some positive tests. We are not going to hide that in the EHL. And with that being the case, some of our team schedules are different than others. You know, seacoast, the wolves, the avalanche, they're all located in the state of new hampshired. So they've all been able to play five games. That helps. For some of the other teams they haven't been able to do so. But what's really eye opening is where teams like the Seahawks, who were number four last year in the conference, the Rangers, Number One last year in their conference. Now I mentioned the before, the express, number five last year in their conference, where they stand right now, and we have a long way to go in this year. This noiling conference set US standings. I don't know if it looks like this and a couple months so as team start to, you know, get to play more games, there's there's gonna be a lot of flip flopping. And you know what's key to remember in that conference. You know, playoffs for even further away, but eight of the eleven make the playoffs and unless you're inside the top for you have to play in a play in game, and we know how that worked out for the Walpole Express last year. They didn't love the playing game idea. They didn't fit what Cody Campbell said, you know, his team's might mindset, if you will, and any day when you find a little bit of a Hoka on the other end you can loose. So every point. While we're still early on in this every point is critical in that conference. And then we shift down south. The sevens rolls. Seven's Britney's favorite team. Probably. I think we each have our own favorite team on this podcast, right will seven's is mine. Heck, I play zero favorites. Well, there's as a slack, quack, quack crack, as as plea. Zero favorites. Well, I have been called ducks fly together, a closet, wizards and wizards fan. Oh, that's makes me by an owner and the hoods, by an owner in this league once, I will not use the name, and by a coach in this league. One. So if we go around, we go around the horn. I am all in on the wizards. I Guess Jeff is all in on the wolves. On the wolves, I got on. I'm more. I'm like a wolves in a bjr Guy. Okay, rich and a my two. Those of my too. Kyle is on on the ducks, even though he says he's not, and Brittany loves the eighty sevens. So anyways, that we have that covered. Eighty sevens a perfect for oh no, not a surprise. So far they've had a few games that maybe we didn't think would be as close. But that just shows you...

...how deep that conference is. So let's embrace the debait. WHO's the second best team in that conference? I've got married Kyle's quack and away quack. No, no, no, leave or not. I'm still I meant to say this. I'm let on the last podcast. I'm a firm believer in the rough riders. I think they're a young team. I think they're going to learn from their mistakes. I would keep my eye out on the rough riders, on the hostess, as I like to call I know Mike, as Brittany would say, my quack quack ducks just beat the rough riders date eight hundred and twenty four, and Kudos to Dylan Knighton, who had over fifty sis. But there's something that tells me that Connecticut. I see something there. It's not going to be easy early on, but keep your eyes peeled on Connecticut Wall. All of our eyes are peeled on thens and team around. Well, well, I like that cow connectic I could score. I think they have to figure out their goaltending. I thanks oldpennings. And yes, they have bellow that have bought a pain. They got a lot of guys that can put bucks and they've always had that. You know, they a calling that. Andrew Bella put forty bucks in the net last year and they've always said guys that can score, eash's Ukasuka as well, just those score. Let's while Kyle mentions that, I have to we have to pull up the box score from today's game because I'm looking at it game. Yeah, quacking, I'm looking at it while I'm calling the avalanche game, and you could actually probably go back and listen to me lose my train of thought broadcast in the game because I didn't understand. I didn't understand what I was reading right. So I look and I'm like, all right, dust score first, then rough riders. It's one, okay, and then all of a sudden I look again, it's five one, and then I look at this for explosion and then I look at it's eight four and I'm like what just happened? So if you look at the goals and then the penalties on one docks make it all the way up to a to a sorry, all the way up. They make it a one game just about halfway pass the you know, middle of the game. Twelve forty, twelve fourteen. There in the second period and then those three goals in a row at the end of the second period. Those are all part of a major power play. That was that gameless content. They, you see, called against the rough riders. So they scored eleven seconds in the major power play, then twice more before the period ran out those killers. So now you enter the third period down five one. If you're the rough riders, you score quick your second shorthanded the goal of the game and you make it five too. Then you found Fridae are good short handed. Another most for handing goals in the League. Yeah, SN Cameron plants gets called for interference. One hundred forty three and they pull the goalie. The rough riders pulled the goalie. I went back in a work Lynn. This is this is a very John Lowndsbury. I'M gonna say largers is also express mindset. Always did. You're down five to. He always said to me there's more time left. What's difference between six two and seven two and five to? There's no difference. The rough riders scored two in a row. All of a sudden it's five for. Then they kept the goalie out the rest of the way and being empty net being empty net, being empty net, and Kyles fantasy points, which we'll get to go from here to like through the roof or Patricia, because he was in on all three of those empty that talies. But I look at the bottom right and Pritrisha get out. I'm like, I cannot figure out what just happened. But after the rough riders beat them six to one on Friday, that is an accident response from the duck says Kyle, tweeted about it. Snaps a forward game skid for them. And let's let's ask the question again. They the second best team, Kyle says, rough riders. So is their argument that the ducks are the second best team in that conference? Team, merrily, do you got to look? I mean they all be poets foot see, Marilyn Wat like secos. Maybe they're the sea coast of the south. You know, I don't know that. They're a little goes down this Salla see cost as far as just as far as the team, that's a little bit of a surprise, right, like they were solid last year, right, let's not count out PLF. Gentleman. Well, what? How? What of their scores been so fus changed? You have that in funny turnover. I got a Exi. My power is out, so I barely can use any internet and so no, I don't have enough in front of you. So give give credits to a little flyers because they went into Maryland and beat Maryland for their first wind and they had to get dressed in an I say think they dress in a parking lot, dude. So I'm crying two thousand and twenty be me. We're sitting here, we're talking about how good Maryland is and it's like the Philadelphia little flyers go on the road, get the first win, that's going to get dressed outdoors. That's really losing two one goal games to start the right and that's...

...just the reality of life right now. I mean they're usually there at the end, but I don't know. There's a lot of turnover. They had a lot of veteran guys that left. They got a lot of new faces in there. I don't know. They've only played three games, so it's kind of hard to tell and obviously none of us have actually besides Kyle, you've seen them play in person, but the rest of us can't see the same so I don't know. I mean you just have. We have hockey TV, gentleman, to true Brad Point, Chirp, good slander. Sure, central thinks. I think, Brittany, I think that's a new network for you. Is Chirp Central. Oh, I ready hard to cur and Central TV pretty heart. Let's see what you do. Can we also hate? Can we talk about I can't. You can't really tell them. This picture. The hair on PLF is sorry, Hayes, all the gay west. Look, they're all grown out the hair. I had a few coaches. Yes, George, UST are rocky. You have a rule where like the like the Yankees, right? Is that a thing? Yes, the Yankees you can with beard or long hair. Yeah, it's a right, rocky. It's a little emile thing too. Yes, yeah, so I get that picture. Technic move text of the me by Mark Catch on the head coach a little fires for the game and he goes what's up at this I go, okay, Games canceled, go back home. Oh No, no, no, we want to play the game. I was like then, go play the game, but it's a beautiful day. Well, what happens at a rings? I go look sunny to me. This is just it's just get James go play some hockey. But they lose a one goal game to the rough riders, a long goal game of the seven, and then they win this one against Mariland and quietly that could be a perfect six points as opposed to where they're at with just two. So maybe they're a second best team in the conference. But we will embrace that question, if you will, throughout the year. will couch a Jan come back to her bottles next week? Yes, exactly so. In the EHLP, similar to the EHL. Don't want to go into too many details because, like I said before, this this privacy that we don't want to touch too much on. But a few teams that haven't been able to play as much as others have. The avalanche feels like they played their three games a long time ago and they were all like right in a row, like nineteen two thousand and twenty two. But they're still right there at imagine a few of the wolves right here. Hl teams already played five games. Your EHLP tea's already played six. So life is good. It's getting the Games in tail on it. Oh and it helps that they are in a Green Zone. They're not like crazy north, but they're just north enough that life is a little bit different. Not there life. They will a great place to be used to go the Weirs, beach all time, driving, movies, arcades. It's got it all. A lot of real there La Conia and and quietly, just like they're EHL team for mount lumberjacks to our no, with a pair of wins against the Wallpole Express. I do have to recognize the main eclipse who picked up the win this past weekend against the valley junior warriors. That was the first win franchise history for us. For the whole program. The EHL team had one game where they probably feel like they let it sway against the seacoast spartans. Again that they we're winning in the third period. Ultimately lost in overtime, but you have to feel like very first win is coming. Also, we are going to go too much into the difference between the New England conference in the Mid Atlantic conference in the ehl, the ducks versus the eclipse. We all know how a number of guys feel depending on what conference you're in, your conference is tougher than the other conference is. Probably thank you for reminding me that I need to do stat changes for Eric Shout Out Eric of the eclipse that I really have forgot to do that all day. Wait, have no Internet. Okay, never mind, I'll do that tomorrow. I can those too. That's fine, but anyway side I didn't. I wasn't using that as a reminder, but sure, I'm like looking at my tech. So I had to see Eric Eclipse in my text. I'm like, Oh yeah, right, the task I needed to do. Very clips and the New Jersey Rennegade, clive, good shot out, cliff. I'll back down to Earth a little bit with a couple of losses at the hands and the New Jersey Sevens, who hadn't played a game like the avalanche right. The avalanche played three quick. Haven't played since eighty seven didn't play until this past weekend. Played three in a row. Went two hundred and one. There one loss and overtime loss. The little flyers show the power rankings right now in the EH LP. Are Actually the same four teams that started the year ranked. So not as much shuffling at that level. But it's a long year there as well. So you know we have a lot to learn with that division and you know there's a couple teams. I...

...know the railers haven't even had a chance to play a game yet. So they didn't even play one game. Yeah, not had a chance to play a game yet. And that was a team that was rolling. They were good last year. That was the wolves, Damn, and the avalanche right there at the top of it. About the JR and sorry, and Jesus Christ, it's a Johnny Mel drew Clo show. Hellong, the regular season champions. Now, who don't know no more? I'm gonna meet Johnny. I'm like, I'm like sweating right now from that mystic Johnny Alphabet, Johnny Alphabet, Ryan Bailey, get there are I'm really gross. Good girls, not bad girls. Sorry, chriss hockey, hockey, old people. Wow, because here come the chirps. Yeah, they come. Oh, I think if we're chirping, what we can get to our our favorite segment of the podcast. What to watch for? It's of course, includes the e crew fantasy challenge. Before we wrap things up, here's what to watch more this week in the east show. And now it's time for the e crew fantasy challenge, brought to you by BERTUCCI's brick com and pizza and pot stock, home for authentic Italian dishes, catering and group dining. Check out their party pizzas and specials, Appertugeescom and I will not get ahead of myself and call it a one horse race with just myself right now. I will not get ahead of myself and do that, because it's that could. I feel FAM yeah, you'll all start coming back, but I notice. Here's what I noticed in the with the fantasy if your goalie is victor. This is going to sound so stupid. If your goalie is victorious, it is a lot better than if you lose. This I know that sounds so idiotic, but the extra four points that you get from wins is critical, and I back up my statement by saying I have four goaltender victory so far this year, which is sixteen points, and if I don't have those sixteen points I'm not in first place anymore. So it's it's tough, though, picking a goalie. It's tough because what I've noticed with the goalies in the ehl this year is it's not that they aren't good. We don't know who is good, though. Yet right at always chosen horses. Yet there's not that horse, and I produce and and he was the odd man out of the Billy Gerards, the Tobias Falcon Stass, the Shawn Dinan's, who went to the All star week for us last year, right like if we were playing at college team, which we should have been, coming up in the twenty second was supposed to be that, though, that series. I don't know who I would be starting in this league right now. Maybe you reducing. I would just go do zy just cuz he's a bad exactly. Gotta go with the veteran, especially in a college atmosphere. He won't get I don't think he would get shook. And Dad, there's just that. It's a lot of you know, Matt Marie once one two Stanley Cups. He wasn't a veteran. Just saying at the NHLBILLY also will get it. Good Point. Good, very good point. Copy is going on? Ottawa, you got traded today? Yeah, yeah, Ottawa for GRUDENCE. You related to junk root any had no idea, but he being him. Ottawa. Did you see how they announced the third overall pick last night? Yeah, I'll share after back right, Alex Trebek did Aux trebek x, which is awesome. It was. It was really I'll find the video and textasy that it was really well done, like it was really well done. They needed that too. Yes, a hundred percent. So maybe he's the number one goal right now. Obviously I had him week one, but let's start working her away up in the fantasy a key question I asked you guys just to make sure I was clear. Do we pick based off of the overall standings or Piss pick based off of the previous week? So, Jeff, to recap your week, the wolves ended up only playing one game and, unfortunately for you, Lj Newell didn't play him that game. That's kind of the risk that that we have to take. If they had played in the second game, he would have played. Right, he probably would have. Bet would have played, and it's like I want to driven to a cony and said, coach Trimble, what's up, buddy? Lj pind is now let's go. My Jersey on. Let's go. The only point I will make it I'm not. I'm just so you know. The goalie that did play against valley used to you play for valley, Kyle Pen Oh, Kyle Penton, I thought I recognize these. Now to all and oh against valley. So whatever they want to rick, whoever gets to pick first when that matchup comes back around, that will be your goalie. Whoever gets the pick first, maybe, but you know now and that and he'll lose that game. But you didn't go out with any points. It was still was a good one. Solo game for the Elmina Bite and it you. Kevin Bites goal was in my top plays of the week. It was gross. Yep, each of Alex, Alex Bite on twitter. Hey, hi, hi, done, and he currently leads Papa Bite. Oh my God, row squad together for...

...exact had it together first. So that was hysterical. So funny. He leaves all defenseman and scoring right now in the EH shell. Nasty. And he's been pick member when he was a forward. Lol. Me To yes, I remember what he got years ago when he drives a really nice car and pulled up behind me once in the game and I'll whips the Mercedes. You Nicer car than I do. I was like might not like it. Whips the Mercedes of wort. Dan's from acorns in it. This kid's got a mercies. I'm like, okay, here we go. Let's walk into the right now. That's always fun. But Jeff, you picked up thirteen points this week to move its in total up to fifty one point two, which puts you in third place right now. Next, who had a better week this week? Brittany, actually, what's interest issue? A week I didn't. I just added these holes up. Your week actually was better last week, but overall you're up to thirty nine point four right now. Week one he had twenty point four. This week you had nineteen. Dennis Ar Kapanko, three assists for you, D I've bad luck, dude. I curse these people as meet for Donkulis, re assists really not that bad. Okay, but if you real it, like Marie Vincent, what's his name? What's this firs name? Hint, I can cover this. Last Vincent, Maurice, I know he did. He had more points to night, the pandom whatever. Fine Britain. It says that it's the tough part of having just one forward, D and One goalie. Maybe towards the end will pick two of each. Oh, lovely, crazy like that. Well, have a bonus week, if you will. Sweet Jack Johansen, a pair of assists, one on the power play for you, and John Cope a play on Sunday. Cope but but I think with his two wins so far, including that, they're I was talking about Jack Johanson in the wizard wolves game, so that's okay. Oh, third time of COPECK. Well, Kopeck played on one of the Games for his team. Could have played in the second one but they gave the start to Matt Sales. But what I was getting a Karnan, when I was getting at with Kopeck, is that that thirty safe performance earned him goalie of the week honors and I think he's the clear cut number one for them right now. So it will get to we'll get to his is mention again here. So we're just want to recap this past week first. Then we get to Kyle, who I mentioned before. What's crazy is Patricia didn't have any points all week until the day, until today, he went quiet. We're game away to I was like looking at the box scores and I'll like all right, Patricia, what happened? And he again leaves the League in scoring, passing Tyler Bonapaine, who was my pick, which we will get to, but he had a goal and four assist today, two points of which came on the power play. Decline House had a power play goal which was the game winning goal for Kyle in that game against the values Ne Warriors, and then I touched on this a little bit earlier. The difference between a winning the loss for goal is huge. Eric Buck holds loses in a one nothing shoot out. Today that would have been another shut out and regularly not a should the extra points of one goal and he gets that. Awesome. He led up a going to shootout. It's not even against. Oh, that's true. They'll have to even against his goals against. It still has to come true and go against. So because it goes in the books as of one nothing game, I'll say sweet, doesn't Gal? I'm bactually had a shutout attorney here. Yeah, he's technically well, I will say to Kyle, because this is the first one of these that I've had. Kyle may submit first. Kyle may submit his appeal to our will give it to Justin. Are Rules to missioner Justin Squitterry? Yes, appeal and been quick. We will have a ruling on the performance for buckles. That currently gives him four total points. So we will D Justin, the unbiased third party make the ruling on that. But overall Kyle stands at sixty three point, six points. Oh my God, I'm Sconda. And then my week. So Tyler, Tyler Bona Paine is legit. He was letting league in scoring until today and as we to watch, yeah, two goals for assists, to power play points, a shorthanded point. The Joan shoot box had two assists, and I'm going to appeal to Justin because if you watch the final five seconds of overtime, welcome to my life. Shut up, shot up, literally, stop talking offensive. Yeah, Deo, what a pretties like? I can I like? Can I from what the things like gonna? He blocked a shot with his like body and it was like he deserves points for that. Plea's welcome a hockey. Let's definitely put block shots in there like that. Start putting down. That was still thing these days, and it was. So was a hell of a block to help get the game into a shootout, and ultimately his team won the shootout. And then, as I mentioned, the key is...

...finding goalie victories. Is like critical. It's just crazy. I almost had a chance of the third one if the little fires hadn't beat Marilyn in that matchup. But Bobby La Claus, he won two games, made, eighty three saves and bone a paid eighteen points. He is the fantasy player of the week this week. That was Patricia at last week Bertucci's Yep, Nice was joan shoot back with four, and then bobby mclassico, fifteen point six. So I have seventy eight point four right now. I'm not getting ahead of my soul. Eveny eight pointly war only two weeks and so you can give us a quick recap. So you're at seventy eight point four. Kyle's sixty three. Sixty three point six. Jeff is fifty one point two and nine more. Okay, yeah, never really, it's a pretty screeping up on me. Oh No, wow, it's all right, another abs week. I need a dabs week from last year. I need to repeat albs. We it most fork of that. I guess my all wolves team did not hold the yeah, all facts. I'm on that one. A The candle, Brit so let me in the dark. But with that, let's quickly, before we wrap things up here, let's go through each guy's pick, each one of our picks for this upcoming week. Jeff, you go first. All right, first things first, let me pull up my little elite prospects tabs, but up a being. So we're starting out. We're starting out with forward and I wanted to pick this kid last week. I told you guys that the group text. We made our picks today. Oh and, like you said to me, I did notice that. It's funny, I forgot, I didn't realize that Dan was your him and his wife for your interview this week and I noticed that his name is on like every picture, every picture. He does a very good job. He is he's at every so did hankling represent? He has this beautiful picture of colled Bellen and an Ahl Jersey. That would have been a Callin in a plane in the NHL. and Ah now if I be in one of those combines. Okay, so Colin Bella is going to be my forward from the rough riders and he had seventeen goals last year. Already has five goals, six assists this year. Eleven points of five games. Is that good for the brand? Brett? I think it is a good from brand called Bella. How are you real good? And then a D. we're going to take niels man born shoot Bach, because be or talk to PAC biorn. Shekor is doing real well this year three goals for assists, seven points of four games. Had Eleven goals last year, nine assist. So he's an offensive defenseman. So we're hoping for a lot of points from born this week. And then last was certainly not least. I might need some help on this, Neil, since you just said earlier that sales is now overtaken Johnny Copack, and I don't know, I say copack did okay? Who? All right, never mind, we're safe. Johnny copack second time around. Picking him as my fantasy goalie got me a sixteen save on seventeen shots in his first appearance, and we're going with Johnny again and net this week, and I'm hoping for kids of beauty. Next up, Britt your turn of my friend heard at Ford. Big Little fires moment for me. Robbie Sawagon, skid. Great, see wagon, new new kid to the League, does well, great name. You know. I would like to say alow, this one's for you. He did tell me to pick him, so we did. Next on defense, George Weiner, roll sevens. I got to pick a sevens get every week. That's my person of the week. I might, I might catch heat for this one. To be determined. And then in my goaltender. All right, seacos, listen up, Brett. Pick a goalie, you have wait to run. He's kind of like in different goaltenders. And, Buddy, you make it my life a little hard. All right, you really are. But according to inside tour does ie nil drew adams is playing tomorrow. So drew Adams it is. there. I have no idea. Chile. You know what, I kind of regret that I didn't wait. I kind of wish I took nils goalie, but that's okay, we're gone good once you announced on the podcast that it's like no, no, Brit took it back. What the heck? What do I do? I ain't taking a back sea coast. Do you get a pick a goalie for yes, if a team's entire week schedule gets canceled for whatever reason, then you get to pick a change. Yeah, all right, twenty twilight cod. Well, first and foremost, just happy to be here and thank you, guys, for for your time. You should just say thank you to Braden, Patricia. That's all you should be saying. It is Braden portray, because I picked him and he executed. That's a good coach did it kow pick lasts last week. We all could have picked him. We all just like God. He was like, all right, I guess I'll take breathin to go. Yeah, the guy who put up like twelve points in one game. So we're all dumb. You're not. It's and belong. Actually, I'M gonna go with my main man, pots and pans, not Neil Raven's, but if steward, six foot seven from the main eclipse, Whoa, Hey, boy, there they're d for when he's got a couple of goals. I just have it's a gut feeling. Timings...

...everything. Glendon, my main man pots and pans. On defense, I'm going with Jake, with with Frankenfield from the Philadelphia little flyers. I see a couple of flying up. Jake, you flyed up. My fired up? Are you flying up? I'm Whiz with yeah, that's it. With between pikes. This is between the pipes, peyton manning durand the seahawks. Payton Mann, Duran, Duran, Duran, peyton Manning Durand of the seahawks. I see somevery year. Okay, wait, Bret, you can't breathe. Your last place. Oh, Oh my God, I'm in, I'M gonna leave. I'm trying my candles out. I'm blowing my candles. How could buy? Oh my God, we got down the PODCAST. All, I'm all right, okay, so can I take good life if you're wending the podcast? Oh God. anyways, my picks. I am keeping true to the way I started last year and just going around the League of picking new teams. I have a good feeling about this. One team is overall and not after they're start. They wanted, but they're waiting score the New York Apple Chords. Michael CARDUCCI. He's got to but my video. Yeah, he's got two girls from the Apple Corey picked last year. And Neil, that went off. It was like one of those writt you did. This time the Line Not Dylna Hut, he was and it was like totally out of boot grows. Hold on, let's give Britty at the name is Moroas his las name is. Moro's not literally, and as I saw you, I Lano, is that right down, and I saw you pick up. You literally got shakes. I got shakes when I saw because if you let me say it, I will say it correctly. There we go right. Let's go Danilo did. I was close and Diean no, dude, very s from because it's not here. He's could check it. Something very good, very good. I can't believe someone didn't take a guy on on for that's. That's absurd. Anyways, Michael Card Dude, she an easier name, I guess you could say, to pronounce for all of us. Two goals and five assists so far this year and his first four games of the Apple Corps. And they play the rough riders on Friday, and my pick is solely because maybe it'll be under shootout, like today's. Was it, with an eight, two, four game. They're moving that back to the Blue Line. It's about time that the man from main Pix a player on the team from main. So I am going he's pooling, who didn't have a point in his first three games, but the last time he faced the seacoast spartans, who they're facing tomorrow, he had a pair of goals in an assist. So let's keep things rolling. FREESE, pooling. And then goalie is hard because there aren't that many games in the schedule this week and this one's really it's high risk, high reward because they face the seven s twice in the little fires. This is my goaliess from the little fires. They face the eighty seven Friday and Monday and then the rough riders next Wednesday. I have no idea offense. I have no idea when this kid is going to start. But the high rate. Are we what? Oh, now I was going to say. Is Marquis, you gonna go, as me and a like to call it, get live in the good life, or is he going to go t CASS EHLP, go live the year? Yeah, and and and they don't. I don't know. And and what's the high risk? Playing a good team in the seven s and a good team in the rough riders? But more for the eighty seven. To the reward, I'll a win over a top five currently rate number one team. Look at you. It's big though, it's it's if I can get one win I'll feel good, but if I don't, I'll make a prediction that one of you is in first place next week. Deals going rudder black on this one. I like. Yeah. So those are our picks for week three. As I mentioned that the schedule isn't as jam packed this this week, but we're picking things up and and for those that are watching along and falling at home. Like our league, it seems like the big messages. Doesn't matter how long it takes. We're just going to finish this season. So it's got to take a while. We're going to overcome the hurdles and August. It's good. A July fourth frozen finals in province. Well, and now you kneel in shorts, will be in shorts and that rush shared the jackets or in time, and then shorts and flip flops. So sounds good, but those are ours. Yes, get that and that middletown get to Providence, which is down the street for my house. Let's go. Yes. So those are our picks for week three. Not a big schedule, but a lot of premier action as well. So we'll see where everyone stands in the fantasy. We'll see where all the team and in the standings next week. And thank you, guys. To Talk to you next week. That's good. Thanks, guys. See you at the rink.
