Every week when I welcomed you into the podcast, I usually mentioned how, while it's going pretty slowly, we are still moving forward. But for this past week, Oh my God, a lot happened in both divisions. A lot of games. They a lot of guy gets called three games this last week. I was actually just trying to count my head. I'm like, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday. All right, yeah, we are all busy. We're all the ranks and what to Action? Some movement in the or some defeats in the top five, next level power rankings and yeah, lots of fun stuff to talk about this week. If doesn't feel like it's been just seven days, though, right it feels like. It feels like two weeks. I feel like I've been seen you guys in about yeah, exactly here happens. You guys. You don't miss meets through. So let's first let's start going around the horn here. I'll start with Jeff Mills, as he mentioned, broadcast number of games in our league. Jeff, how was the home and home series of the Rangers in the Express? Who? Well, I was gonna say maybe I don't know if it needs words. I feel like that sound just kind of says it all. It was fire. It was a tale of two teams, tale of two games. Friday the Rangers there was actually the series was it was all about the battle of home disadvantage because Boston went into Rob Min arena on Friday. It was tight, was want nothing for a little bit and then the rangers just started to open things up and that end up being a one victory for coach DiCaprio on the Rangers. But then totally different story Saturday afternoon breakaway. I set her got to see Brittany for the first time in a long time. It was nice. We're all obviousids. I couldn't work stuff. That's a different story. My clock is a different story. But very good game, very, very tight. Wallpole comes out with the two...

...victory and yeah, it was it was quite the weekend series. Neal and and Brittany hard is our ranks ade reporter and obviously we all do the fantasy together. But for those that don't know, Brittany and I pick every game on the side and I picked Walpole in that game, Brittany, because you cannot beat someone by the same by six goals twice and then expect to beat them again. But you can eat are you can say that you're leading, you can say that you're leading, you can go say one of my plus three, plus five, only for for for after today, because after today get it going. Bills, Anna, bony, what's caught? The AG double hockey stick to the closet. Wizards Fan and me, here we go, yeah, with the close and Seahawks fan and me, here we go, because they like me. Yeah, she has plus four on me and that regard. But then last one, not least, calm, I canna. Are you show beat writer. And finally, Kyle, it happened, the cheese steak review. How to go? I thought you're going to refer to the fact that someone finally give me gear. I they both have. Do you want to talk about the the hockey game first or the Cheese Stakervit? Whatever you want to start with. Let's start with the cheese stake review and then we can kind of go into the hockey game backwards. I got you. I mean priorities. I was some that was a fire stuff kind of like. So I do. I appreciate everyone that that tuned in and to our crew here that that helped make this possible, and to Anthony over at the little flyers. It was, you know, just a fantastic held open in time and very organized and what a facility over there to at ice works. I hadn't been there. In ten years as a player I'd played it there, but it's been a while. As as you know, I'm an old man. That's the cheese steak was very good. The bread was very soft. It's very impressed with it, just like the meat was very like chopped. The ways was like just like perfect on the bread with the fried onions. So ice works pub and grill. I know our boy g crank and field give it and I nine. It's a little high. High, you know, the best chief think I've ever had. I would go like eight, eight point five. So for ice works, still very good. I have to thank them. Like I said, Antony little flyers very commendating grief facility and I saw a heck of a hockey game and very dramatic comeback from you know it's coming. Well, Oh, I've got a bad kind of my protect ducks. Just a crazy hockey game and I think both teams would agree. Just a roller coaster of emotions. It was a long team, not just the fact that it went to overtime, but it was just very dragged out and you know, protect entered that third period early stages down for one. They won five, four and overtime and it's the captain to get the hat trick and scores the game winner. So I will sell you what you want, m thin. It's a character wine. Unfortunately for PROTEC, they did lose on Sunday, so a nice little rebound for the little flyers to WHO, my opinion, have to be the best last place team in all of sports right now. Hard to believe a little flowers are last places. It's a good hockey team. The little flyers came out, they established a strong forward check. They got guys like Patt we can score or they have a playing of role players, strong goldstending. So very impressed with a little flyers and I'm still shaking my head and the fact that I don't want see the last place with their turn. Best place for that the MAC. He'll be out here, guys. It's crazy. Wait, PLF. They got some new kids coming inside her. Oh It's me, all right, let's hear it. Watch out south. No, I can't tell you who they got. That's you. Just it's Insert Info. We can just say that now. I'm sorry for you, guys. Gotta wait till PLF plays. They might already be on the website. Honestly, I don't know, it's like I'm going to tell you a secret. No, I'm not going to tell you this secret right. All I know is PLF.

They have added some new players. So Watch out, core, get ready and with that New York op Horn, get and with that, let's start making your way around the east show. It's time for this week segment of around the e show. Around these shows brought to you by the junior hockey podcast, your home for junior hockey news, knowledge and nonsense. Check them out at tjh podcastcom. And before we move on, because we're going to start down south today, kyle, the first of that two game series with the docks in the little fires. You said it reminds you of something, and a left of the reminds you of something. Remember him of something? One of they reminds you of well, I was up in the almost like this, like t key bar porch above protext net. Very cool. I'm not keelling, I know, I know. That's yeah, very fo if things were normal, it's like wow, this could be almost like a minor league hockey Gamer. It's a guess the party deck, but it's not. We're just watching the game and I was next to college scouts. Don't worry, can I do like little wave rich Leonard Dicaprio? They did not tell me that the New Jersey seven's where their favorite team to watch, because they weren't there. We have heard about it there and I was next to you know, Anthony, it's some other people from the little flyers, and everyone kind of looked around at me and they're like wow, this reminds us of the revolution against a little flyers. Like it was just it was good hockey, but it got Nancy at times. It was chippy, it was physical. When I say Chippy, I mean that in respectful way. Be So I know some people get like offended by that for some reason. It could be just for two teams are I know you guys are laughing, but for two teams that have never played each other before, you would have thought they played each other, you know, a hundred times prior and four years prior. So what a way to kick off a new new rivalry, in my opinion. And so many areas on the ice. And you know, I'm not sure if you guys were able to tune in, but it was intense and it kept you on the edge of your seat. Yeah, and I actually I wanted you to say that because throughout this season we've tough on a few different things that happened in the hockey community. We talked about Ryan frew on this podcast, we talked about Travis Ruyan this podcast and now we're going to talk about Brian page. And Brian Never played a game in the EH LP or the ehl but he's part of that little flyers organization and obviously they're not great circumstances to see what we're seeing, but the outpouring response of what people have on social media and something like this happens is truly incredible. And it didn't really like I didn't feel I didn't think too much about it, it didn't really like hit home for me too much until I got a text from our good friend a low today, and I'm not going to be the whole thing, but the first beginning of it is honestly. Neil, thank you and thank the League. You want to know how great this league is. Everyone always talks about how intense things are always between the revolution a little flyers, but when a little fires player went down in our organization there were two revolution alumni that's stepped up and started eighty seven strong and a matter of hours. And like I read that and I'm getting goosebumps right now reading that like that, like I like had to sit back and might not do anything for ten minutes. I was like, Whoa. He talks about how Brittany helped them make the graphics with with ECK Grizzled. He talks about our partner for this podcast, the penalty box foundation, reached out. I mean you guys have seen it. Jeremy Ronick. Like any NHL player, you need Roh. Yeah, all, my box of them all Tis will getting got a video from Patrick Sharp and I was on the phone with Ale like rightfully recorded this and and obviously you're these things are happening and you like under the wrong circumstances. You don't want this to happen to this kid, but it...

...is just. It's why I try and like tell people why hockey is different. Like, yeah, there are things like this to happen to other sports, but you do not see like the whole community come together like this and anything other than hockey. And right to go. Fund me. Peace is exploding. Yeah, and I know people say, like they hate social media, they hate this about it. They hate that about it. But right now, like when you look at this, the amount of times at his gofund me has been shared, the amount of people that are even just tweeting about it and spreading more awareness of it. Times like this is when social media is so important, and this kid's family has been helped out so much. Like I think to go fund me has like close to a hundred fiftyzero dollars in donations and just work and like it's crazy. It's just like, you know, as much as the revolution little fires hated each other on the ice, like hated each other on the ice, these two alumni like step up and do this right away and the sales from that have been huge. And, like you just gets tough because I'm trying to get, you know, do our work and stuff throughout the day, but every now and then you check back in on it, it's like now this person saying something, now this person saying something, and like what we're it gets even crazier for me, and this is why I like uld I legit have goosebumps. We got a message on the ehl twitter today from Mick diver and I'll never I'll never forget November eighteen. Four years ago when make diver was playing for the Boston bandits in the EHLP and he suffered literally the same exact injury. And like when I saw his name pop up, I was like like speechless. I was like, Oh my God, and I guess he already at I spoke with a low he's going to have a zoom call with the team because, you know, we always talked about on this podcast junior junior age players, right, kids that are eighteen, nineteen, twenty years old, how they interact with each other, you know, how they go to the rink, what they do off ice. On I saw that these kids are even younger, and what Alo has told me is that these midget teammates of his that are maybe, you know, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen years old, like they don't even know how to respond to something like this, because you know, it's something that you're in the middle of a hockey game that's intense as ever and then all of a sudden it's over just like that and one of your teammates is motionless on the ice. And just the fact that Mick diver reached out and like it was today, four years ago, and he's going to talk with the team about how he's overcome this and he's walking again. Like I just took a step back. I was like this is unbelievable, like I can't, I can't have my head around it. HMM. That's just the character of him to like the fact that he's reaching out and is helping those kids and says I know those kids on a little flower seemed like they're like as anyone would be, shaken up about it and I feel so bad. But the fact that they're going to have mcdiever talk to them is going to, I would think, help them tremendously and it just shows that how good of a kid he is that he wants to reach out and help other people. And it doesn't matter what Lee you're in. I mean Boston manors aren't even in the league anymore. Right you know Ryan through the situation the handle with him on the league anymore. It's amazing how all these leads can come together and act as one. It's a global to new it's yeah, hockey's a small community, but it's global. It's not just United States, it's not just in North America and unfortunately, you know, I've been through circumstances like this before and it's amazing how it's global. Yeah, it's able. So you know, Brian, we've got your back. The world has your back, hockey community has your back. So we're you know, we're here for you. So on that summer, no, will try and find some life again, the four of us on this podcast, but we're like, like Kyle said, we're here for we're here for Brian. Everyone's here for Brian. Yeah, they're ready, brother this and and as we continue down south, it's a really interesting conference. Guys. You know,...

I got all the tabs pulled up because we have to go through this. Like we have to go through this, like I do not understand what I have to do with the next little power in kings in the number five position. What do I have to do? Hi, don't know. I never heard of the beat when you beat the sevens and then get swept by the core. Oh, like. So let's go through this right, because I pulled up every single game following, you know, naming a new team number five, because I have to talk about it preseason power rankings. Wallpole Express played one game at number five and they lost to a good avalanche team. Five to, but it's still a loss, right, okay. We moved the New England wolves in at the time hundred and Oh. They lose the first game at number five three one of the seahawks. They're out. Okay, let's try somebody else. Let's try team Maryland next door. No, that time they got put in. The first game they play that day. They lose the little fires. See You, oh Mike. I'm like, okay, we're over for three so far. Let's try so we actually kept team Marylyn in. I forgot about this. We kept team Marylynn because they lost the little fires four hundred and twenty two and I thought there wasn't much else to slide into their position, so I kept them in. And those are actually Kyle's first two games as a broadcaster for the ducks. That was the backtoback for three. I think. One was a street alone. Was An overtime win for team Maryland's. I'm like, all right, maybe we got this right, but that was a four game week for team Marylyn, which those two wins against the ducks were then followed up by two losses to the little fires. Okay, so we'll try somebody new in the power rankings. I throw in in the Vermont lumberjacks. That was the one time it worked, because they then went had a three games sweep of the valley junior warriors, not easy, by the way. Six three, seven, five and five three. And I want to say there were a few as Ryan penalties. No, no, as Ryan Grab. Do you gaps all the cap? Not, they get a few guys and so so closer than you even would imagine. Right then we know the next one, the week five power makings. I throw in the Connecticut Rough Fridays. I'm not having the same happen to that. We all know that. They went on a four game losing streak. Afterwards. It's like I curse them, like really hard. Okay, we'll take a break. Will put Vermont back in. When you don't play, you can't lose, okay. So they were off until they then lost this past weekend against the New Hampshire avalanche by the score for to nothing. So I throw marilynd back in the top five and they lose their first two games against the Apple Corps. I don't get it, guys, I don't get it. So we called a top four power rankings. We're just getting rid of the face and this came. We say goodbye to five. I mean like it's the badden curse. It's the madden curse, for you know, I'm focusing on the positive. Who's going to be the team that breaks it? Let's go, just bring nobody. Who's going to be the team that breaks it? For get protecting. There in the protect mckendas of salivating. They're ready. Well, I think that's a good a. it's a good transition, though, because, all right, so is he Maron lost their two games so far this week. They could rebound. They do face the eighty seven, so say they sweep them. I'll probably keep them at number five. Right, but WHO's the next guy up? Who Do we think goes in there next? It could be from either conference. About the need to I neat. They lost today. They lost its a no good went for the wind. Okay, you know who the wizards behind me of now, because we asked this question on a weekly basic on the rough ride are exactly. Who are the East Coast Wizards and who wore the connict knows who are the East Coast Wizards? Like, seriously, you get you get shut out twice, two times in a weekend. You...

Score Zero Goals in one hundred twenty minutes. Zero, not one goal, and then you beat bill me. All right, I don't give you bills. Been A lot. They've been doing a lot of everything on tree and I'm pretty sure the wizards were leading over the Rangers the other day. Is that one is tied at one point and that's I think they did lead. At one point they were tied. I was like, Bjr, the wall pulls rest really freaked your fish up. That's when Kyle, that's when Kyle texted folks we got a ball game and I looked out right and then B Jr said no, and they ran away with it. They said we gotta go, we gotta score a few more. But yet. But Jeff just mentioned the seahawks. Yeah, they were a really hot team. I saw them against the wizards last week. What I think is literally Sunday. But I think is unique about them is they have three two tho goaltenders and I would say all three of them are capable of being a starter on anything. And Hadley, I mean Hadley, did it last year to raise with this year. Yeah, and blamee more. Who came more. It more Hadley who we did. We thought was being created, that it did not get better, mess up. It just didn't know. No, no, Neil Close Truston hobably got shot in to Marylyn. Me shows up to the seahawks games Sunday and I literally Christian what he goes. I said what I thought you do? What do you I was like, I mean the excellents just say the trade fell through transaction. I said, Bill, isn't this kid supposed to be in Maryland? He goes, how do you know that? I just said. anyways, but it's interesting because you know I we've discussed my sleeper before up north. I have a new sleeper down so okay, yeah, I hear it. Let's go. Let's go center around South Arab Connecticut. Cheap, but yeah, chefs I have. They are. They are a really heavy team and and sometimes you look at the box score and they lose and you're like I'll get all those penalties and they got a probably got they let the physical game get too much, and that on Neil Breen being your headach, that's on being the UFC fighters. He's got the boy time and like to talk about that, but he was a former MMA fighter and as what it was called, as Chrisorella said, never be the guy that tells Neil Breen you're going to punch him in the face, because before you know it you'll be knocked on the ground. He's look lighter. He's a fighter man and and they're a tough team. There are really tough team to play against and and their physical and Marshall mccallup, I know that none of us pick ookey gross. He's this week. I he's a going to watch Zach Richards as a former and somebody confirmed he was on Worcester Lasher. He wants that's why he has a blue helmet. I even watched the kid's damn. But they're right. They're right in the middle of things in that conference. I think, Kyle, you called one of their games right. Yes, they so. They played PROTEC. They lost, but I think I mentioned on the podcast, and I think PROTEC would agree, they were arguably the better team that night. It just so happened PROTEC, you know, flexor muscles. It's a team that can score at will and they came out victorious. But I like any captain, Phillips and company. Oh Heck yes, Max, even when I was broadcasting the game, I refer to him as Captain Phillips and my Captain Phillips Holding up the ice work by Captain Phillips, but the captain. No, dude, Max he's a beauty. I see, I guess so I'm exactually funny. Jeff and Kyle Britty has never seen that movie. So you guys are keep you keep referencing it over me over again. Okay, yes, she's just going past and talking about other stuff and you're talking about the same thing and she's just I'm on a Maxi train. You guys are on some movie trainer, and I mean that respectfully, to to Captain Phillips. Do on that, you know? I'm...

Ye, yeah, I'm not. I'm not mocking the young gentleman to think he's a he's a heck of a player and when her up something, ice will warm up. So I'm like, holy how do you see that here? Yeah, he's got a playoff. Pretty these guys are up to something that I think they're the only team in the math who is above five hundred in their last ten games, other than the sevens, of course. I think. I think they're the only team in the MAC who has above five hundred in the last ten flats and that and now, folks, that's how you have the standiest memorize in your head. Yeah, you see me like the pennies up to my head, like you need guys, Captain Phillips and company. They've got talent in all areas, you know, if you have depth at goaltending. I mean, Hey, we talked about it all the time. It's the eye formation in the EHL. So it's Center D and and a goalie. I'm so, you know what, I kind of like this cheap span lagon. I mean, I got my little flyer spent tired on. I'm I'm flyed up. But you know what, if I to pick a third favorite tells team, third favorite herd, I would say the chefs and Maxi. Just because of Max though. That's it. But don't worry, the rough riders, I don't know, I didn't forget it. Forget about you boys. Say so they still have the two top goal scorers in the league. Like, you know what, they're a lot of pain. Bella still up there. That was twenty goals. Like Bella's not going anywhere. I mean he might, I mean he might climb the ladder. You know, yes, move on it's Patrick. He's he'll be the first one to twenty goals. Yeah, really, he's still think of his brother, him and Manhattan Villain. He's gonna rip it up. Yeah, I spoke with Brandon Johnson, the owner of the chiefs, today and we were talking about we were talking about I don't even know what we're talking about, but the conversation shifted towards I named Max Phillips Board of the week last week. Obviously we'll get to who kicked them. One of the forest picked him and fantasy this week and I asked Brianna like go brandon, do you believe in Jinx's? And he goes no, I don't. I go okay, I don't either. Word. That's such a Britt. Max Phillips has played in every single game since he joined the chiefs. Whoa doesn't shock me. Why did you have to say that? I don't like thet forty, all forty, six games last year, all fifteen this year. That kid is tough as hell. Yeah, he plays the part. That picture I sent you guys have him screaming at the appage and he looks at and plays the part, looks and I think he's Max Fan and and and to continue with this conference, though we say all this, and and the point that got hammer at home for podcast to go. Five, podcast to go. Yes, that those grect the little flyers, are forty one, but five of those losses are to the sevens. Right, so that they shouldn't be voided. I don't like waited, you don't watch. It happened. They're a real team. They are real team. They have we can we take off? I take half off, I'll take Hawkid, but it's a really interesting conference and I won't even thought it. Ask The question. I don't. I don't know who the second best team in this conference is. They don't know that. These people rolling and act doesn't know either. Neil, don't or if you ask, the math is literally like March madness. The Mac Oh, that's good. That is anyone else like? I'm not a basketball fan, but I'm a huge march man. Is Spend. The math is march madness. Up, I fill up a bracket, but don't watch a single game before like the project ducks are down by like five goals of two minute classic game. It's like this is plenty of time on the clock. This is going to take another half hour. Project. Scores like two goals. There's like one point, six seconds on the clock, like Bring Patricia Che's a slapshot from like the opening face off circle and scores like it's like all right, we're gonna called time out. We it was your point, six seconds left. There's still time. It's march madness in the Mac and I'll tell you another team that the sleep on right now, the apple core. I had the core and hot and they and they one. When the...

...core wins two games in a row without their top score, look out. But they're what there is on one forhead of their least sticks. Yeah, right, two of them being without car Ducci. HMM, that's pretty good. That put it in your book phone. I mean you know they just had the court of the week this week. Will we do? And I really like the design of those graphics. It's I don't want to go I don't want to spend I want to go back to Brian Page for a second here, because Britty mentioned patrick sharp getting the video from the Chicago Black Hawks. I'm not sure if you guys aren't so I'm not sure if you guys all know this connection, but there's a goalie that won two games for the apple core named Jackson Bernard past two days. Oh that's a little guy. Is Father is Mark Bernard, who is the VP of hockey ops and ten and team affiliates for this Chicago Black Hawks. And that's how this whole thing came together. And it's just like I we I know we already talked about it, but it's just it's amazing how, just like the smallest connection here, like someone knows this guy, who knows this guy, knows this guy. All of a sudden this videos here. It's just there's a separation. It's crazy how it is, especially in hockey, though I'm said there's a difference in hockey. Hockey's a no, absolutely hundred percent as it. It's just such a it's always been a tight knit community and it's every guy and there's just I feel like it's the sport itself to write the journey that you take all these different guys. We look at all the guys that we have in the AHL that were players at one point in the NHL or they played the AHL. The HL was a number and guys that have been there and dumb that's they all know the path of them they and they know a hard it is to get there and they know that there's a lot of nights where you're going to be, you know, sleeping on buses, going here, going there. Pre COVID, obviously pre covid, covid, keywords, chaking hands after a long playoffs here. Yeah, you know body, you know. You don't know of Fans Neil, you don't. You don't see that truce box. It's the only are good point out's the only sport where you go shake the opponent's hand after they beat the living you know what out of your friend allies. You go over. You look at some of these teams, like they have assistant coaches who played in the Ahl, like billy perdue for bills, an Aboni kid played them a person all your seahawks team. Now He's coaching his brother, like full circle. Here comes like in those kids are the best in my like if I was in their shoes and I had an assistant coach who played in the League, like first person I would go to. Sometimes I had coach gives the intimidating feel whatever, but you go right to the assistant coach who played like I would never go to hey bill, because in about very human book intimidating bill. Wait, Dude, Bill, on Sunday I when I was interviewing he's like get off the air and don't tell anything so bad and I was like, I was like I gotta go. He's just Skot the world. But he is a big dude and he gets he's scary when he's you just know him. He goes buckles. Howiday get over here and sound intelligent. I was. I was that's it's a great transition up north, because the best Yasna bony moment ever was last year's all star event and the sick the series of the College Games and we had practices and morning skates at the edge sports and over the wizard's play and I don't know what happened, but the puck must have like hit the net and then came off the roof and then hit him and he gets it well right, like right here and it is a bubble coming off at his head and I'm like, Bill, you want some ice or some Nah, feels good. I was like, Um, he plays goltender guys right, and then we had the hit. We had the hicklings down to shoot the whole week and he goes, can you just ask Dan Hickling to shoot from the other side where it doesn't look like my head is coming out of my head. I was like, Oh my God, Queen Kyle, have you met bill? I mean I yet he's a treat. He's awesome, Dude. That show tragic it Ah God, get up bill, billy, Zee, Zanner, Zan and beauty and for any name here. Rebs in the...

SEAHAWKS. Didn't they cress? They cross past once last year. Yep, but I don't think I met bill. I was there at Exitier love, he calls it exitier. To motoso here's all right. Well, I know. was like when you get to know bill, he is God damn funny. Yep, yeah, he's so funny. Oh my God, I was just like the way he just like yell and then like I yell at his kids and he's like, Yep, I'm my guy cool right now. Like if I was to yell at like, I don't even know who, insert team named Worcester railers here, they'd be like how can I team like that and feels like you can scream at them all you on. I'm like, Oh God, all right. What else we want to talk about in the New England conference, because I'll tell you what, after losing their first game in a while, I think they lost one game in October. Now they have one game in November. The avalanche with their three games sweep this past weekend. They looked pretty damn good and I know it's another one of our fantasy picks. Later on, George macmichael and his story. In his second year he leads all goaltenders in every category. He's a beast. He leads and wins. He literally is in goals against average. He leads and save percentage. He leads and Shutouts, I think. Don't get me wrong, it's seeming fun of the OAR. The team in front of him helps him out, don't get me wrong, but you're sure got to win the game by does work too like I'm calling that for nothing game against the lumberjacks and like the score of the empty letter games, got over like but all of a sudden, like three seconds left, the lumberjacks get this like crazy chance and I'm nowhere and he makes this like full split save and I'm like Ah, okay, and now we still have the shutout. Folks, I was because again it's wanted the game. You are already broke yours and it's like I no, I'm not let my goals against the see. Yes, so, yeah, that's no way. I want that. I want the goose egg baby. Yeah, and and already. You, George, always talk about how there's not really that number one guy on this team, but Chris Aaron's and Parker San Dag really stepped up this past weekend and maybe they become their top guys. But this seesaw battle that we may be in for at one two, we may be in for it all year long. You know, they're watching each other's box, course, rangers, as you know, they're watching the big question right for Chris Radew, since I'm the the outsider here down south. What do you want to be? Do you want to be number one heading into the playoffs? Knock on wood. If you are either one of them writtle, yes, say absolutely. If you're either one of them crazy, yes, I'd rather, yeah, get in, and then that's just me. I'd rather win ugly than loose. Pertie, and you are not Chris Sarella or richie deep and want it. They both want all the high that's why I'm a march bandits guy, corn unquote, the MAC is march madness. You're definitely do you want it? I'm gonna put you guys on the spot. Do you really want to be that number one seat? Well, I'm with I'm with my men here. How did I get up? Open One offident that they can get the job done. If their number one, I'll play that. Let's go. Let's go further than number one. I'm not sure if Kyle knows that. My little top five, number five curse. It's cute, it's it's no regular season champion curse. Oh, that curse right, Kyle. These are the regular season yampion since the sacred ehl started teach neil to two thousand, two thousand and fourteen New Hampshire junior monarchs. The next three years, the little flyers, two thousand and eighteen, revolution two thousand and nineteen, little flyers, two thousand and twenty. Will never know it was the rangers and when I handed that trophy off to them in the locker room last year, I looked at them...

...and I said see the names on this trophy, guys, the regular season champion is never won. The playoff champions. Yeah, it's like the prisons trophy in the NHL. Yeah, it's common sense. Yeah, and you didn't. You don't want to touch it, right, you don't want to touch you one of this. I had to put it down on the ground, right, and then he got around for a picture and the whole teams like, don't touch it, don't touch it, don't touch it. I'm like, guys, just chill out for a second. And then they pay the pace and they like, can you grab that and put it in coaches office until whenever? And and it never got touched again. It's in that exact spot and we never know what would happened. Right. Last year's Rangers team had as as good an argument as any of the teams still left from the playoffs that they could money. But this year avalanche the front runners right now, avalanche, Rangers Sevens. It's going to be just as hard for them to get through each other and whoever emerges, as we have all these sign like we have all these sleepers to win both it. It never happens. Maybe it never happens, I don't know. kind of jinx it reverse drinks, Jeff, reverse drinks. Say let's stay away from the bridges. But we touched on an awesome two game series between the Express and the Rangers. We all it's well known on this podcast that cody is my best friend. Everyone has to point that out at all times, about how much we golf together and we are all most maybe drive two hours on this upcoming Sunday anymore. I mean, I am not going, I can. I would never in my life. You couldn't pay me enough money to sift through eighteen rounds of golf with Odie and Yoh, got a video you can in write me. I'll be either deal face and deal space row. First off, just so, just so the folks know at home, this new Saturday we are going to play eighteen holes of golf. Now, N Eighteen rounds, rounds, agolf, golf, all right, eighteen rolls is all around. I know that's what it was called. Okay, you know why I called it rounds, right here. That God. anyways, the round would take a solid thirty five hours, so that could be. That would be an unreal week. I'll could you imagine just playing through the dark? Let's go again. Let's know. If there's any man that could do all, do it be you, buddy. I mean I guess you could do it. I guess while are on this podcast. I made a foursome and I thought that we at least had three confirmed. Jeff and Kyle, would you like to join cody and I yes, dude. When my dad was in golfs, eighteen holds, whatever it is, that man's is gone from the crack and dawn till the time the sun goes down, and I want and that was a good day and that was a good day right. John will tell you the same thing. He'll say, Yo, had a great day, and I'm like, I'm happy for you, but I don't want any part of it. I'm not sure if he'll be listening, but one of my good friends at Hockey TV, Chris Hicky, we have negotiated the last three hockey TV contracts on the golf course. It's been a great time. It's been an awesome time. Every time it works out well for us. So, like I said, Kyle and Jeff, you can sleep on it. We cut wet off at noon on Saturday up in my home state of Maine. Cody's about if I didn't have a big game on Sunday between the dunk eighty seven side there. I mean you also are coming up from New Jersey that you were. If you want to talk about you never give us we go. Well, if you want to talk about crack of dawn to dark, that would be a hell of a day. Kyle might fall asleep on time. You get back to like the Kersey threw way, but I'd stare were night. We have a good time boys there go, but not you. Maybe some cheese steaks and don't yeah, definitely. I'Le had his his video feature come out for his cheese steak. I'm a little nervous here because cody and I have played numerous matches against each other, but it feels like Saturday's one really counts because we're going to film it Justin's all in on editing it and having an update after every hole where about where we're at. So...

...there's a lot of videos. This is why I will be here. So this is like the match. This is like very this is like this is like tiger woods and Payton manning versus top yes, but not exactly. It is not quite as skilled. Not just don't do a Brady did. Don't go out there and play a teen and then go try to play eighteen again, get all burnt out. God, Oh my God, but it's it's as tight as things are down south. It's the same thing up to and and you know I yes, the railers are still asleeper of mine. Of course there's a lot of teams to watch in this conference and that's the end. That can be said for the EHLP level also. I don't know if this is quiet, but it feels quiet that we still have a team that's actually totally a hundred percent perfect at oh no and the New Hampshire avelanvel and Blah Blah Blah HLP team. Like it feels like no one really has noticed that. And the Rangers are not are not far behind them, like they're. Three of their losses have come and shoot out or or overtime. They have one regulation loss. The sevens are also a top team at the EHLP level and, like we've talked about on this podcast, the playoff format is a little bit different in the Eh lp, but kyle mentioned it earlier. Being that top seed, even if it's still a battle against a four seed, you know that being that top seed you get just that much evin advantage, that it makes every point that much more critical throughout the regular season. Yeah, absolutely, and I mean playoffs. Like you said, it doesn't matter what you did in the regular season. Once it comes playoff time, it's a toy. It's a new season. It's a new season, being as code sure about that. One cody was cody was so fired up. The other I want to go say congrats to his wind and I boys were like, Oh, coach Kail was gone. I was like already, cody, actor caves is a Darren species. It's so funny. It's actually has sterical. It might wrong. No, no, no. And and now on one big reason why jeff wanted to congratulate them because it Jeff's fantasy team without the express team this past week, and I want to spend a little bit more time on fantasy this week because I have three important topics to talk about. Oh yeah, don't there's some wax Shite going on there. So with a lot of stuff, Neil. With that, let's transition into what to watch for before we wrap things up. Here's what to watch for this week in the east show. I want that it's time for the e crew fantasy challenge, brought you by BERTUCCI's brick up and pizza and pasta, your home for authentic Italian dishes, catering and group dining. Check out their party pizzas and specials APP Fortu cheesecom. So let's start with. We told everyone what del Tufo and strummer doing for their fantasy as. They're going to battle it out for one of them to have a play in fantasy match up against one of us, whoever finishes in first place, but I failed to update everyone on the where they stood this past week. So basically, two weeks into the month of November, Colin Bella has three goals to power play points in one shorthanded point for DELTOFA. That's twelve fantasy points. Jack Joanson, we can give them a little call out. Jack. It's time to step it up, because you haven't got a single point yet for Don Dude, he'll say a lot of words about that. He's got a lot to say, and he is. That's what I was going to say. You know part of it out. He pointed it out and I don't come so put on this up. Yeah, okay, and to fo and rhet was a like her close rhet has lost two games so far for deltofol but that's not to say that he can't flip that script for him. So don't Tufo. In the first month, just the first month. Is that sixteen point six points. Remember, whoever of their picks has the highest total is the grizzled player of the month to get some grizzled swag. And then whichever of the two of them they're collective over November, December, January, February, whoever...

...has the highest total, that's the guy who gets to come into our play and match up in the playoffs. And strum is a head of Deltofo, I mean Michael Car Dude. She pretty touched on this. He's been hurt. For the apple course, he's only scored one goal for Shrom, where regressed on a goal and two assists, one of the power play. But the player that I needed to mention is LJ newell. He's already had four starts for the wolves so far this month, which includes a win over a top five team. He's so far in the month of November has collected twenty six point six points. Who Shit Lastree? You picked them up what at some point, but but I don't think it was the week. No, it wasn't. It wasn't the top five weeks. So right now in that series, if you will. With that, that matchup between strum and delto FO shrum is up thirty seven point six to sixteen point six. But, as you guys know, with our fantasy, which is what we're transitioning into. Next, I'll say the surprise for last. Things can flip quickly. Banks can flip very quickly. I know. Yet Rene is a case of I am still in first place, but wow. Well, coming the the forward pick I had this past week in Eagan, smit was a good pick. He got held scoreless in the one game they had. I was shocked by that. I'M gonna pick Michael O'Brien again, just for everyone knows at home, the way that we have things set up, if you are injured and you find out, you know around the time when the game start, you can reset it. So I ended up with Mark Blaney, which you can say was lucky that I still got a goal in in the cyst out of the week and to call his school. I got to call his goal because good number three, top play of the week. Play the week. That's Rind I, Cood, Eric, luck Holtz is having a good season, hmm, and lucky byy bucky. I was like. I was like Mason Palmer, Eric Bucklets, which one is going to potentially beat the Rangers and I? I could not have picked that anymore. So you did, dog. I have three point six total points this past week. Folks who we're going to reach, good break. We're gonna we're gonna read see them. I still the only person who is none having single digit week. I get really old, please, I feels first, Neil, welcome to the single digit club. Buddy. Let's give a guy still reign supreme battle clock the Golf Maskol Wow, wow, you had one. Your lowest total week was an eleven point week, but you've never had a single digit point week. Wow, and that's I'm being the deal. Neil, Kyle and myself. We've all done it, but Brittany hasn't. But I'm still tied for last place. Don't Fret, don't worry. I was so I don't know what you're tied Ford. Wait, oh, what do you have? Like point six more than me. It's a tide, I'm pretty sure, just like the presidentially election. Blah, blah, blah. Right, and I'M gonna say my pen any who, before we get the off the rail segment we've got pretty good guy, the vos a fact marker, Sondag, I mentioned earlier, one of the hottest for words right now for the avalanche. Within the fantasy week he has to seacoast matchups and a wolves matchup, so I feel good about that. The Valley Junior warriors play four games this upcoming week. Joe biddle is a defenseman that I don't think gets talked about enough throughout this league. A former defenseman or not former. He plays at southern New Hampshire and he's actually still a Twomo, so he can come play in the league and then go back to southern New Hampshire. So so bold. I feel good about picking him this week and we'll see, and I know Britty will mention this to this when it gets to be her turn. Picking a goaltender is hard. Oh my God, I was ready to get tender turn. I have the least amount of wins at the goaltending position fantasy.

That's TU LEF and I my mouse just died. Folks, who did they pick again? Dug? Yeah, I have no good of me. I Adam Yost. Yeah, the old two goaltender for the East Coast Wizards. He is he's an Oto. That was what makes I think the comparison. I just compare the seahawks of the wizards. Right. The seahawks have three, two thousand born goaltenders, and the wizard starter isn't o too. It's a position that typically it is a stud wait to see the one that clocks someone with the glove. Yeah, I'll call you out for you. He actually, if you watch the video, Britty, I don't want you to call him out like that. If you watch the video, he actually hits a bond guy. So then, why do you get kicked out if you hit your own person? Okay, Wean One. anyways, we are. We're working as a lead to assess the situation and with that, let's position to the next picks. Kyle was a kyle. Yes, it is. It was kyle who finish. So normally, outward expect a start between the pipes and I work my way up to the ice. But this time around I need some familiarity and I need to rebound her because I've dropped in the standings. So I'M gonna go back to my week one pick at Ford rading Captain Duck Patricia. Guys fresh off the hollows and gentleman, he's gone on Friday, didn't record any points on Sunday. It's a little flyer. So I think he's going to be due for another big contest. And on defense I'm going to the seahawks and I'm going with Tyler dudes and Dudet's duter stat. That was a Benner a rab in my main man, pots and hants. I know you love that one. This is a guy who I think produces. I think he's going to be due for points. Seahawks are busy. And then between the pipes, Nathan, I am not a hot dog Miller. My Man, get me some wains in net. I know you're not a hot dog guy and you don't put catch up on your hot dog like Brittany. I'm so hot ys you catch my gross sure lies. So, Nathan Miller, I need you, my friend. I need you because the only reason why I'm not first place every noses because goldtending just been bad. Hot I the least amount of wins and goes and goal scored, tied for first assists, probably the most goaltending. Probably timing has been bad. Three wins and anything about eight weeks of fantasy. Well, let's go, boys, who and guest and and with that, Britty, your picks. Next, all right, at forward. You know what, this player. I'm wearing my pl love sweatch it. This player, you know what, didn't start off the hottest, but it's not about how you start, so we don't care. How about how you started, Kyle Patten, but get off. This kids on fire lately. He's electric. I got the AOK for my dog, a low. So we're going Kyle Patten at forward. Kids, been tearing you to play against PROTEC SIPE city. Straight up. That kids hudos sniffed right. So we're going Kyle Patten. I swear to God, after every little flyers game a less tip me about how good Kyle Pattn is. So here we go. Defense. I have not picked somebody from the roll sevens in a hot second. I have not about two weeks. It's a long time for that's a lot deal. Jeez, come a long time for me at first has picked a weeks one or will be two years. It might as well be. So Dylan Gutierres it nice. I have no words for him, but yeah, get up, Dylan. Here we go big and that as we just said, I hate picking goalie. Sorry, gullies, but you just make my life a little bit difficult.

It's a little hard. It is a little hard, but I'm going back to my Homie, my bff, as in his mom and the goat, Georgie, curious George McMichael. Here we go. Get up. That's a car on nickname. Didn't make that one up, but you know what, this one goes out to Mrs McMichael. Get up, Queen. Here we go, and with that it it's just starting. I thought we touched on Jeff and his all express team this past week and he got the bonus points in. That's some Nason from Mason Palmer. Is Cool to call that do. I'm sure your rangers broadcast on Saturday was very express. Homersh at times. Nope, no, okay, he according to the boys. According to the boys, your broadcast Friday was a little sad. Really. That's just what I heard, though, lashes my feedback anyway. No, it's I know. I tried not to. I mean, I was just that was a it was a drubbing. I mean even cody admitte, it was. It was not a good game. It was the Wa will get beat up. But they show up Saturday and they answered and I got to thank Basin Palmer. FACETOFACE is a base Ice Cape. Thanks those fans. Point is like, are you welcome, Jefferson, no problem, is welcome. Some saying that. It was just kind of he's like, are you welcome, and no problem. Just like very suave, very cool, calm, collective talk to Romeo, terrain, Zact Simon. The boys, boys were feeling and I thank them for their their good work last week. But just on turn those empty nets celebration. That was the most extra thing I got the scene in my life. But yeah, they were pumped up. You know, it was a big one. They're flyered up, we're turning the payer terrain. Now feature down. You, Joe, and I made sure to plug that. Kind of plugged your article quite a few times. So I hope everyone goes to check it out and if there's still time to go check it out, if you need to, over at the eastern Hockey League Dot Org. So go over there and check it out. But onto this week, friends, another week, one by myself. Now we're getting closer to the close and els gap. The gap as we closed to ten points gasps. Neil has never been not in first place. Since we start a fantasy. You real late, really. So when? Not? Last year? The Shin? I really do want you one last year. Oh that's right, I did. When last year? Yes, I honestly forgot about but the fly, slow, key, Okey, flex but all right, so here we go. So starting forward. I had to pick them because he was a top performer last week. We're riding the shift's chefs are hot and everyone knows that Max folks is a great beard and his beard kind of looks similar to mind. So we're Yep, magic, we can exchange some beard selfies. But if you want to, God, wait, can you please out scream and let me cry. I am you did a selthy with Maxi in the beards. Holy Hell, we should do that, Max let's make it happy. Man, you're a great week. Last week you're putting a lot of points. Seventeen points and fifteen games, or a point per game player. I like your power play. You get two goals on the power play, three power play assists. So we're gonna need some more power play points. Then we're gonna go at the Apple Corps. We're going to do James met Lur on defense this week and Oh one, nine points and nine games, so point per game. Player jeames is got four of those on the man advantage of goal, power play goal and three power play Assis. And then we'RE gonna go with Mr Matt Sales for the New Jersey. Eighty seven's. They have three good goaltenders. And why is Britty laughing? Because she's big, because sales and palm are are best season. You just pick one after yea. So that's kind of funny. That works out. Somason, you were great last week. Matt. Never met you, buddy, but good kid from Milton, Georgia. You look a good kid. You got a good smile and your picture and that's why they're best friends. The Georgia kids are really tighten this week. They are. Remember last year Bjr with the Georgia member. God, I can see him in my head.

Come on, here's a rock. Bart is a brother who plays it snow. He's going to be so loud. I don't remember. Away Yea and the Yes, the gala is yes, Georgia, cow mel from Georgia. I got up caw Mel, Oh Conn. How about Big Georgia fod? You know another position that we're kind of struggling with as a unit, the four Pfense, defense. We're not having hard in this really little plans. then. No, actually, Neil, I was gonna say me. You like pick and goalie. So these two, Kyle, of Britta, I'm struggle. I think. Open her position, salivate for, you know, the d the let's send up defenceman of the ease show. At least get all the score sheet. That's all amassing. You don't have to scored the overtime winner. You don't have to score on the power play. I don't like you don't have to score. Okay, just don't even score. I think we just took to stay at hold the fresasis up. Come on, Jack Johanson, get up. I don't know what to do. You sleeping, but like anyways, the overall standings, I said, at one hundred ninety two point six, jeff at one hundred and eighty three point two. We will recognize the margins, because Kyle just pointed out one. It's one hundred and fifty. Second place rigged. That's one hundred and fifty four point four for Kyle, one hundred and fifty four point Oh, for Brittany. Oh, blah, blah. Four points. It's gonna get really interesting for us in the month of November, are of December, because now I have the the surprise that I've been teasing the Santa. I beccs you on that email and there's a reason why. Why do I include you on the email? What did they point out in that email to all the college coaches? Me, me, I'm raising my hands. Oh, come on, the not to come on the PODCAST. But what are we doing? What were doing this week? Answer it your you are announcing the people who would have made the allstar event if it were to happen. TAYS COVID and obviously this year's event that we were trying to have. Normal year we have our all star series against the college teams. This year we're going to have that for team round robin, if you will, with four teams of fifteen skaters and to goals face and that was going to be next week. You, and then we tried, we try to have actually having some December days. We tried different few different venues. Just the different state by state restrictions and the optics of hosting event like that. We just can't pull it off. But we're going to recognize those sixty eight players on Friday. We're going to announce that. So big week coming up with biosteel and announcing that. But how does how do those sixty eight players tie in the fantasy? I feel like we're going to get like a bonus player, like you pick a bonus person out of the people who would have made it. Well, we're like the month of December we were going to split up the sixty eight players into four teams for the event. Now we're this way players into our own four teams for the month. My teens gonna be electric. So we are going to be drafting them. We're gonna DRAFT AND WE'RE gonna not do it lave in the podcast because no, that would takes a seventeen century. Takes US eighteen rounds of golf to finish that in my right. Yeah, and I try and and that was a long one. Sorry. We're gonna WE'RE gonna have an offline draft on either Monday or Tuesday next week and for the month of December, each of us will have nine forwards, sixty and two goalies. I am flired, fired off for this. Forwards and and just if we need to I have for Jersey colors. Brittany will be team read, which I know is your favorite color. Blue White, and on Blue White, blue whiters gray. You can eat pick one blue, white or gray. I already at red, my Canada goose jackets. On the new guys, I'll go last, so you can pick whateveryone. I'm finally, you could color o care blue one that I'm going to pick ray. No, I just picked red. It's already met. Right, he's right. Oh, sorry, I'm deaf. Blue or white, Jeff, I'll go blue. I'll be team white. So I have to connect. But Dude, I...

...have to connect with Justin the figure out how he thinks we should determine the drafting order, not that I think it matters too much, but we would do it as a snake draft. So that mean one I don't brandy for and then four picks again, three, two, one, one, two are all right, and we will be announcing those teams on next week's podcast. We are dropping a podcast on thanksgiving, because that's another announcement coming up here in the next few days. We are playing a game this year on Thanksgiving, and who is gonna be the WHO's going to be the e show Rep. just me, don't or I get up coaster white. That's my only hints. Sorry, didn't mean too yeah. So, yeah, it's you can go to the schedule. It's on the website. You can figure out you're gonna build. One Fun thing that we will be doing on Thanksgiving. For those who follow me on social media here, I'm going to have two dog blows out and Nash is going to pick which team is going to win that. Sure, that will be fun. But there's a lot of there's a lot coming up here over the next week, next ten days, next two months really in the EHL. Obviously we're doing everything we can as a league to keep moving forward and keep playing hockey games for these players. The state by state restrictions continue to fluctuate a little bit, which makes it hard, but we want to make sure we recognize the sixty eight players that would have had a chance to play in this event, because those kids deserve that recognition and why not have a little bit of fun? They would have had four different teams at that event, so now we each get a team. The points are the same. We will each pick a sub on the side outside of those sixty eight. Also, we can kind of work out those details offline. Just in case, for some reason someone's injured one week, you can sub in one player. So the points are going to skyrocket here really fast and really quickly in December because we're going to have more than just three players going. We're going to have a lot of forwards, a lot of D and a lot of goaltenders at the same time. So where we're at now on November eighteen, this drops in the nineteen. Where we're going to be January, you name it, January first, two very different places. So well, I'm in first right now. I could be in fourth by January first, and I will make sure that you guys get the list on Friday right away and you have Saturday and Sunday to prepare for Monday night's draft. Electric deal right, sounds good. You guys had no idea that was coming. No, but now I'm I can't wait. Oh my God, we will be. Will be announcing those sixty eight players on Friday. Friday, as we've talked about in this podcast, we have six games on Friday. I'm start pounding my chest. We have six games in the EHL on Friday. So thanks are picking up.
