On this week's episode I talk with Bob Chtell, who's the assistant coach at Morrisville State, the owner of salt city prospects, a teacher and a high school hockey coach in upstate New York. We then take our weekly trip around the league and continue with our new debate comparing a set of players from last season to a set of players from this season. As always, we wrap things up with an update on the e crew fantasy challenge. I'm joined now by Bob should tell, the assistant coach at Morrisful state and the owner of salt city prospects. How's it going? Good? Neil Ho Abo, you thanks for having me. I'm doing well. I appreciate you coming on. This came together in a matter of like two or three TEX. I actually got your contact for information from a current it's an our league, Michael Grace, and I want to talk about salt city prospects and other that's your connection. But before I get to that, obviously you have me mentioned. Assistant coach at Morris Phil. This is supposed to be your second season. Where you guys at right now? Obviously a very weird year with the pandemic, but where are things at right now with a program? Yeah, it's been, you know, it's been an up and down roller coaster type of year. I think everybody's kind of trying to manage as best you can. But we got a couple practices in October and then we were, you know, shut down because due to a some positive tests on campus. But actually we are. Our kids got back to school on Monday, so we are back on the ice Thursday practice and so we'll practice three days a week from now until basically they go home. So you know, it's good to finally be back out there and kids are rare to go. So I mean even just the practices alone or going to be, you know, worthwhile, that's for sure. And then the history of the EHL. I know this is only your second year at the program, but in the history of the ehl twelve total kids have committed from the ehl to Morris fill state, including at least one in each of the past four seasons. How much? How involved are you in their crewman process? Quite a bit, you know, quite a bit. We try to get out. Obviously this year was a little funky with, you know, not being able to get out in person as much as we'd like, but a lot of hockey TV, you know, myself and Chris has anno and Kevin Crowbell, the head coach, we you know, we try to get to as many games and showcases as we can as possible. You know, this pasture we brought in rob pack from from New England and Jensen Dodge, who we actually will talk about that later, but we actually found him at a salt city prospects camp. That's how we kind of gree that relationship. You know, we love getting the HL ranks. You guys run an awesome, just awesome showcase because you guys get the right people in there and you know you do a great job maximizing the exposure for the kids. And, of course, in the SUNYAC it's a conference that a lot of our players want to go to for a number of different reasons. These SUNIAC has can we've committed a hundred and thirty two players to date to schools in the SUNIAC. When you're out on the road and you see a fellow Sunniac coach, do you feel the need to be, I don't know, paying more attention or to raise downstairs faster? What goes through your head? I mean it's kind of a sense of relief, to be honest with you, because if you see him talking to the same kid, you know you're kind of on the right page. So I think you know as much. It is a competition. If you're talking to the same kids, it's kind of like, okay, well, we're on you know, we're not far off here all, we're all seeing the same things. You know, obviously league like the EHL, there's going to be so many eyes on the kids. It's not like you're going to find a wild card here and there, because everybody seeing, you know, the talent that's in the league and you know all this. All the coaches are there and you know we're fortunate enough to have good relationships with, you know, every every coach in the Suniac so you know if you see somebody at the rink, we're all very cordial and you know it's a good it's a great conference to be a part of. That's for sure. Let's talk about that conference. You're actually the second SUNIAC coach have had on here in the quote unquote second half. I had Brian Dickinson on from but brockport back in January. Can you just talk about the conference as a whole? It is just so competitive. Yeah, it's it's a lions done every night. You know, it's I think last year I think we ended up playing, you know, nine or ten of our games were against ranked...

...opponents and eight of those were within conference. You know, it's tough. Anybody can beat anybody on any given night. You know, you you go to Oswego state and there's Threezero people there. You go to genesce O, people are hanging over the glass and you know, it's an unbelievable conference to play in. The facilities are phenomenal. They treat it. Just the way the schools treat the sports and the athletics in the conference is top notch. I always tell recruits when we get them on campus, when we talk to him, is just it's a great place to be a hockey player. The way that the conference is run your right and upstate New York. You know it's the weather matches the hockey, that's for sure. Yeah, so it's a it's an unbelievable conference. I've enjoyed my time in it and you know, I learned so much every day just being in the conference and being at the rink every day with these guys. Let's talk about the road that brought you to Morse fill. Was it always kind of a goal of years to land at as the act school and an assistant position like you have? Yeah, yeah, I mean I guess it. I took a very unconventional path to where I am. You know, I actually started coaching high school hockey when I was about nineteen and then I got another high school coaching job with Frank Hel Buffos, an unbelievable hockey coach out here in New York state, and kind of together we figured out this salt city prospects stuff and just through the relationships with that and I became very good friends with Chris has anno, who was at courtland state at the time and and he ended up going out to Lincoln Nebraska and the USHL and you know, we stayed close during all those years worked our salt city prospects camps and he ended up getting the Morris fild job a couple of years ago and you know, we had a couple conversations and him and coach Crow will call me and asked if I'd be in shout enjoining the staff. As you know, a volunteer assistant skill development type that and I jumped at it. You know, it's been a dream of mine to coach college hockey and so to be a part of it anyway I can and it was an honor and, like I said, it was kind of unconventional and probably twelve, thirteen years ago I don't think I would have been here with where I'd started. But you know, hockey's a small world and and I'm glad I'm here and that's for sure. I love every minute of it and this is a podcast that we try and provide information for future players, current players, but also for coaches too, and obviously there's a lot of coaches in our league that are trying to climb that same ladder. Would you tell them the same thing that you've kind of learned that the coaching out of a caraself, you will kind of does fall an unconventional path and it's really a lot about who you know. Yeah, hockey such a small world, you know. It's just there's so many relationships and people I've met, you know, through this path and you know, in between that high school and the NCAA, I actually I was coaching Accha for eight years to I was a head coach in the Accha and you know those late nights of eleven pm practices they can had. You know, you go through the grind but you love it and and like you said, it's just you meet so many people along the way and people notice hard work that you put in or notice that you're always at the rink and you know, just striking up conversations, you know, and I've been very blast to meet a lot of great people throughout the last handful of years, especially with Salt City prospects, and you know, it's been a phenomenal road and phenomenal path and my biggest piece of advice. Like you said, I think the relationship piece is huge. You know, the more people you can meet, the more times you can put yourself out there. I think it pays dividends in the long run. And let's talk about it. You've brought it up a few times. I'm going to start with a very broad question. What is Salt City prospects? So what we do is we were really based in Syracuse, New York. We've been running skill development clinics and camps for years up here and you know, a handful of years ago we expand. We decide to expand a little bit and kind of threw a dart at a map and we ended up in Rockville, Maryland, running the camp down there and took about probably seven hundred phone calls to get forty two kids for the camp. And now this will be the fifth year we're going back to Rockville and now it takes it's an invite only camp and it takes about a hundred invites to get forty two and we're up to six different camps. We run three camps in Syracuse, we run another one in Rockville, we run one in Boston Massachusetts area, and then we run one in Philadelphia. So we went from that one camp to having six. And really the idea behind it is is we get forty two kids pretty much to every one of them. Are One of our Syracuse camps we get eighty, but are other five. We do forty two kids, twenty four forwards, Twelve d and Six goalies, and then we just get a ton of really good NCAA and pro coaches to come out there and run the entire camp just give the kids a really good platform to play on for exposure and development. And you know, we keep the numbers low so we...

...can keep the coaching numbers high and kind of create that, you know, the more exposure possible. So we've been blasts again with with a lot of really good people involved in it, and it's grown quite a bit the last handful of years and it's been fun to see and be a part of. So and you say we. Obviously I mentioned you're the owner of it. It's kind of your show. But who is the we? That's a lot of weeds. We could be here for for an hour just listen names. But I mean it really is it takes a village you know, I I'm the owner, I guess, but you know, it really is a village of coaches. I mean you look at you know we got guys John, John Whitelaw assistant coach at us. We go state, Chris Has Anne, I've mentioned him a bunch of times. I coach with him at Morrisville read last wing at Plattsburgh, Tj Manisters Ki at Curry, Mike's Andellel Myra. You know, just listen at all courtland state, Stevenson, Bill Selingo, a Castleton, Mike Young Becker and then even going to the junior and prep ranks, Steven Molero, who is at kings for a long time, and all be academy. Now Rich DiCaprio's a huge part, you know, of what we do. And Mike Grace Again, I mean he connected us. You know Mike. I've known Mike for years, even when he was at kings, and he works all of our camps. And so having guys like that and that evolved. You Know Ryan Blair, who's got his start here in hlp and coach and pro hockey still work in our camps to this day. And Joe Palmer, assistant coach at the crunch was at Cornell for a long time. So you know, it's just it's really grown from you know, when we went down to Rockville, I think we started with six or seven coaches and it's grown to a list of about I think in our worcester camp this year will have around twenty two Oncaba coaches in the building for it. So we're blast with a really good group of guys that want to be involved and I'm a firm believer that if you get the right people surrounding you, good things will happen. And you know, we've been fortunate to have a really good group of guys surround this and embrace it and, you know, take it to where it's been. I'm glad you brought up Ryan Blair. I actually have them on my list of people to interview in this podcast. I wonder if he's going to hear this and ask when his turner coming up. I've never had a nicer guy in the world. There's no doubt about that either. Nunbelievable hockey mind. So and you mentioned that in the first few years of it it took all those phone calls to get, you know, a full group of participants. But now it's invite. Only do you actually also have a number of coaches that are trying to get in as well. Yeah, yeah, and that that again it goes back to kind of what we're talking about earlier with the relationships. You know that first year it was really kind of saying hey, to give this a shot, just give it a shot, come with us, let's see how it works. And I was lucky enough that Steven Moro knew a lot of those guys like Chris and John Whitelaw and convinced them to come along. But now it's gotten to the point where I'll have a lot of coaches, you know, just reach out and say, Hey, I know an assistant coach here, there, a head coach here, there that would be really interesting to come to your camp. And in my opinion, getting the more coaches and getting the more coaches involved is ideal. So we don't turn anybody away. If you want to be involved, will find a spot for you and we'll get you involved as much as we can because its only builds the exposure for the kids and early on in the process, now that you fill your camps with ease, it sounds like, for early on in the process did you ever find yourself almost hitting your head against the wall and saying, was this really the right idea? Yeah, I wouldn't say it's with ease anymore still, but a lot of phone calls. We really we don't send out blanket emails. I like to talk to every kid individually so they know it's not just here. Come try this camp out. You try to really reach out to every kid personally and let him know that it's for real. But yes, it has gotten someone easier knowing that. You know, if I'm on the phone for if I make fifty five phone calls in a day, I'm going to get forty registrations, versus making fifty five phone calls and getting all knows. So it's come along way and I think just the product growing has been immense and that's played such a huge partner. I mean, kids can go to our website they see, you know, seventy five kids in the last four years or whatever it is, go on to play college hockey. Well, number speak for themselves, you know, and so it's showing that we're getting the right kids in the building and we're getting the coaches in the building to see them, and so it's just such a it's such a cycle that it's that it's been definitely helped. And I looked at the list quickly before we got on this interview. I think I counted twenty five Ahl guys right away and you Benson, Jensen Dodge. Can you kind of tell that story? Because he's going to Morris Fill? Is it because of salt study prospects? Definitely paid played a huge part in it. So Jensen. And again, I think this kind of goes to the relationships we have on the one side...

...with the junior coaches and the relationships we have on the one side with the UNCABA coaches. I think it's such a perfect medium that it pays off because you know guys like Jim Mass, J that's how Jensen was introduced to us, Jim Mass. We have a good relationship with Jim and you know every year, if I don't, you're going to miss some kids that deserve to be invited. So it's a text to some of these coaches like rich or jim or or cody Campbell, whoever. What kids do you think we should invite? And Jim shot me a couple names and Jensen was on that list when he was in the HLP. We got him out to our Bedford camp right at the east coast wizards drink and we really liked this game. Again, with only twenty four forwards in the whole camp, you're going to get noticed for good battern in between and we took noe of him and we just retracked him for about two three months into the year and we gave him a call and things is kind of worked out. But I think that camp paid such a huge dividend for both of us because we got to know him as a kid. We got to see his habits and practice, we got to see his habits and Games. He got to see us, what our coaching styles were like, who we were like as as people, and then it just kind of maybe accelerated and built the comfort level between both sides pretty quickly and and it paid off and we're thrilled to have him here with us. And when do you send out these invites? Do you ever have a player kind of respond to you and say why should I pick this over something else, because they're really there's it's become there's so many options on what to do to stay quote unquote, in shaping the offseason right yeah, and I think a big thing for us. As you know, I think the small numbers is a huge, huge plus, and I try to tell kids that is and and you know, I really do leave it up to them. I don't try to twist their arm in any other way, but I do let them know, you know, with the small numbers, it's gonna you're going to be seen, you're going to be talked to, you're going to be noticed, whether, like I said, for good battery in between, Somebody's going to take note of you. And then I also tell them, you know, you're getting so much ice over the weekend. You're getting three practices and three games and we also do a question and answer session with every with coaches from NCAA, Ach a, junior hockey and prep school and even some pro guys for the players and parents. So we're trying to give you as much information, one on one type information, as we possibly can over the course of the weekend for as far as recruiting junior hockey, college hockey, whatever it is. So we try to really push that, you know, down that path of you know, you're getting a lot of bang for your buck over the course of a weekend and and you know, hopefully it does pay off. And you know we have a lot of kids and actually I don't I don't want to drag this question out too on, but a great example is a kid like Tanner Coleman. Tanner was a kid that grew I I coached tanner when he was eighteen. You I'll here double a and and tanner reached out to me and said Hey, I could use some help trying to find a place, and so, you know, we facilitated that conversation with rich rich got him out to the to the facility, skated with them. They both loved it, which I don't know why. Tann or one it and the rest is history. And then on the flip side of that, Mike Young ended up reaching out to me, knowing he was a salt city prospects kid, to and said Hey, you know what can you tell me about this kid? And and so it just it's funny how everything just kind of works out. And you know, again it goes back to that relationship piece it. So we try to really help kids not only find spots in college hockey, but if you're looking for spots in junior hockey. We have a relationships with pretty much every EHL team you can think of. So, you know, just a phone call to any of these guys and get you out for a visitor a skate, and you know, we trust. We try to help kids out on any way we can. Once they are enrolled in our camp, we really feel like they're a part of the family and we're going to help him whatever way we can. And you mentionin Tan. Are Yet at tweet about him there now. I think it was his first college Gamer or something like that. When you have the chance to send out a tweet like that or a post, what sense of pride does it give you? It's rewarding, it really is. It's very, very rewarding and and the best part is that the the amount of those tweets that I've had to put out in the last two years has probably, it's three hundred percent more, probably, so that that's even more rewarding now seeing the numbers really start to grow and those tweets really starting to have to come out. It's just seeing a kid, especially your kid like Tan or like that kid just had double ankle surgery over the offseason, like the kids, battle through a lot to be where he is and he's an unbelievable kid and he's going to he's a coachable kid and he's determined, and so to see a kid like that succeed and finally get that moment, it's awesome. It really is awesome. And you mentioned the growth and obviously also the the the overall size.

How many players are at each camp? How do you find the patients in yourself to not want things to just explode bigger and have more camps and more players there? Well, I kind of I guess I'm lucky in a sense because I'm a school teacher during the day, so these camps really aren't my quote unquote livelihood, I guess you can say. So I can really kind of pick and shoes where I want, where we want to do it, when we want to do it, and I only have really six seven weeks in the summer to get them all in and you run out of weekends once you add in Fourth of July or, you know, weddings or whatever. So you really got a kind of pick and choose where they go. And you know, we do do the one camp and Syracuse at that we've up to eighty kids and that's because there's so many kids. You know, we're right here in Syracuse, but we get kids from buffalo to all need to UTICA. So we get a lot in New York steakids and then we take, you know, kind of the best the some of the kids from the out of stay camps from the years before and invite them up here for this camp. So we put on a really big camp and that one'll probably have like twenty three to twenty five oncaa coaches in the building for that one. So that would be four teams and so it's a little bit more, but everything else, yeah, we've maintained at the same all these years and we don't we don't want to go above that forty too. And the final question about salt city. You know we're going to have some players that listen to this podcast and maybe reach out to you right away with interest. How do you kind of balance taking an inquiries like that not filling your camp too soon, because if it sounds like you almost recruit for your camp. Also, how do you kind of balance where we're at in the calendar and hope tell kids to be patient. You make you may or may not be selected right and that's a big thing. I think you know, like I said earlier, it's so hard to see every good hockey player, you know, with all the leagues and all, especially this year, with not being able to do it in person. So it's you know, I always tell kids when they reach out, you know we're will look India, will look in you. We're going to know a coach or somebody that's coached you along the way or against you, and we'll reach out to that guy and you know we'll put you on. If it's full, will put you on a weight list. But if not, will you know if it doesn't pan out this year, we'll keep track of you and add you to the list for next year. You know, we don't like to turn people away. We feel like we can always find something for you, whether it's come out to our skill development clinic and you know we'll take a look at you there, or whatever it is. So you know we're more than happy to take inquiries and we like to do our research on kids, for sure, because we like to get the right kids in camp. But if you're playing in the AHL, there's no doubt in my mind that you can, that you that you belong to one of our camps. We've had a lot of success with the again, going back to a kid like Jordan buffling came to us when he was the leading scorer in the HLP and you know, now look at that kid, the way he's grown and you know he ended up obviously in a great spot. So it's just patients and hockey's hockeys sport for late bloomers. You know, that's the that's what we always say and you know it's it's a Mara, not so. And then from one final question, you mentioned your school teacher during the day. Obviously we touched on both the morseful state and salves today prospects. How do you balance all this? Well, and actually I helped coach high school team out here too. Currently I wear a lot of hats. My girlfriend gets pretty frustrated sometimes. She's a saint, but she she's very patient with me. I'm away more than I'm home, but you know, I just love being in the rink and and being a teacher's very conducive to that lifestyle because I am out of work each day pretty early to get to the drink, and you got the summers off and the weekends off to recruit and stuff like that. So it's a lot. It's a lot of late nights and early mornings, but but I love every minute. I Love I love being busy rather than bored. So yeah, it's it's tough some days or whatever. I hear you my wife. I always point out to her it's kind of like fever pitch, you know, there's there's winter guy and there's summer guy and summer guy loves the RED SOX and when the red sox are in action and winter guys the offseason. So you just kind of flip it sometimes for hockey. So exactly exactly. I appreciate you coming on. Will make sure to get the the website link out for everyone for salt city prospects, but definitely for all the fans, all the players listening at home, make sure to give salt city prospects of follow because there are so many ehl players, both past and present, that I've worked their way through those camps and onto college hockey. It's truly awesome. Yeah, I appreciate you having me on here me and it was the blast. And you know, like Neal said, don't hesitate to reach out. You know, in fact, the last four years we've done our camp and an...

...ehl rink and awesome, so awesome. We did in the Rangers rink four years ago and we did it in the east coast wizard rink and then this past two years, last year and this year will be in Worcester. Mike Young has been awesome facilitating that and getting us in there. And so yeah, we love getting the HL and the HLP guys involved. So don't hesitate to reach out. More more than happy to chat and I appreciate you having me on her nails. was blast. Thank you, no problem. Thanks again to Bob Chittel for coming on the podcast this week. As he heard him say, Bob is the volunteer assistant coach at Morrisful State. He's the owner of salt city prospects. He's a teacher and he coaches high school hockey as well and upstate New York and a huge advocate for our league. We spent a lot of time talking about salt city prospects. For players listening at home, make sure you look into that. It's an exclusive camp that they run every year and if you really go to their website and you check out all the college coaches that take part in that, it's pretty special. When you heard the story on Jensen Dodge, a player that basically got recruited the college based off first being seen at salt city prospects. But with that, let's bring in the e crew now. And guys, when we drop this podcast we will be forty days away from the frozen finals, school or zero. That is awesome. It doesn't feel like it, though, right I get it's still feels like like, you know, like when you're running towards something and you feel like you're not gaining any ground at all and it's just still as far away as it was before. It feels like that to me right now. Yeah, it does. And if running feels hard, then go buy a pellets on the all way. You own a pellet on Coul town. Were still waiting on your sponsorship Peloft, because what come on then? But besides effect, but now, I felt the same way when I was looking at all the when I was doing the Rangers Ki in the the day, and I was looking at how many people have what they have for games left, and everybody, well, actually, no, sorry, not everybody. From a lumberjacks was still in double digits. Mostly every team is down to single digits for Games which is crazy for all everyone to think. It's like kind of sad that guy kind of hate it. I do too, but it maybe it's like we're going up a hill and he can't always get to the top of the hill and then like we're there and like I just ordered my outfit. So I hope they come in the mill my fet me, you say, you said outfit or outfits with an ASS. That's not be cool.

The avalanche in ten games in the second half, are actually above five hundred, but they're six, four and oh, which is not who they are, not for Sorolla like and that division right now is awesome, like it's awesome, and that's almost division. Still tough, but I'm not even talking about toughest, like when teams go to Waterville Valley. It's a shootout, like automatic, like this. I called two games for the granted cup this past weekend. The first one was for one, the second one was six, five and overtime, and then today, when we're recording this podcast, another seven to five game. Maybe you're at the Ville today. I didn't go to I didn't go to the build today, but I'm just saying another set, another the first game was eleven goals. Today was twelve goals and backtoback games up in Waterville and N T Exprett, trider and I go. I don't know what's in the water up there. Back goes. I lived there for ten years. Now. To do I all right. Since it's been two thousand and twenty one, you know the best team in the North has been? It's been the walls, who holes. Now it's sea coast. Well overall all of two thousand and twenty one. The past week or something telling the wolves, but sea coast is is onto something. Here yea and Drew Trimble, here's your wolves. Plug up the night. What's up power? I will buy and I'm quoted saying way back when, I think it was probably your first podcast for two thousand and twenty. One said there's something weird going on with the north and I know like a lot of coaches now in the central division, the North Division or meeting this podcast as I speak. But I said I was like there's something there with the avalanche. I don't trust but I like New England. So now I'm thinking. I'm like, wow, sea coast is he's onto something. Yeah, and I what's on? Saturday? Was a Saturday? Yeah, was Saturday. GRANTA Cup about? That's next weekend, dude, that I'm attending. Yes, let's say money or I'm just gonna hear fronday. Monday, yes, everyone, pastor covid test please. So anyway. So, anyways, before the Waterville Valley first game this past Saturday, which was avalanche wolves, like clockwork, I should just pull it up so I can show you. Guys. While we're here, where are we going to be something? I by the way, I staid I like booked a hotel him. I just have no idea where I'm going. That's looks. Don't tell him. North Conway. How about I booked one an exidy, but on ex Tia exit. Yea. So are we're not going to stare you? Yeah, we're not going to send this graphic ou until the time is right. But then this get sent to me about twenty minutes before that Avalanche Wolves Game Happen. Can I see it? Yeah, excess, we can. Awkward. Oh, oh. The avalanche for two points away from Clints in the north, and there's been three different occasions where either they win or the wolves lose where it's over and I have the graphic ready, but it's not over yet. Now. That would involve the avalanche going winless over their next seven games, which anything is possible. Ever, I I forget exactly how it went down last season, but the avalanche had to almost go undefeated down the stretch, if you guys remember correctly, to surpass the lumberjacks for the two season the second first round by so what I'm getting at is most likely the avalanche get their two points of, the wolves miss out on two points at some point and the avalanche of the one seed, well, their next games Thursday, I guess, the against the list. So that's could they beat them? Yes. So the question really then is, did I do the graphic for that game. What do we want the two three matchup to be in that division? Coast are the people we coast post Jimmy, let's Jimmy. Wait, that would to make sense. No, sorry, it's one verse for so I'm no, I know, I'm literally dumb like as we absolute for this, as we record this. Yeah, can't say what it would be like. Curry avalancher at the top. Forty nine points. We know that. Obviously in this division there's a chance that some teams get to a different number than others. So that's where we use the points percentage. But regardless, the wolves in the SPARTANS are tied with thirty three points, but the wolves have played four less games. Yeah, man, the the lumbers lumberjacks have a ton of games. Lest lumberjackster, eight points back with the have a ton of games, but ever since they beat the avalanche, the last time they...

...beat them, it's been like this curse because they've lost five strives straight. Yeah, so I think, I think. Will we see right now is what we're going to get. Avalanche, lumberjacks, wolves versus Spartans, what like that. But spartans, it's kind of scary those are tough series. MMM, those are really tough series. And it's when it's a three game series, like they can go anyway, like like what I called. I'm going way back, going two thousand and seventeen, eighteen season they first are crying. The first year the Avalanche won the championship and game one of their series with the wizards, the wizards hit the post and over in the third period, with like thirty seconds left, avalanche going over time. When my guy remember is there. That would have flipped the whole series. We were, I like that game. We were like the edge. Yes, I remember that too. That's crazy. Well, obviously I brought it up, but like whatever. As to say, the wizards were the Cinderella Story. The last time we have the frozen finals of Providence, right. They upset a couple of teams on their way. So I mean it does three game series are tough. I don't know. Would you, I fear I'd almost like to ask, like pull the coaches. Would you rather on one and done their three game series? Cody Campbell would say three game series, and that's the tea. Yes, and I think like seven games. Just crazy. I forget which year was, but there was a year when the little flyers under rocky Roosso were just a wagon, like they were the one seed regular season champions. That will the beginning of when you came on you. Yeah, I think it was either the first or second or six years ago. They lost game one of their first round series the nighthawks, who like all connected. I think this play they could play a hundred times and the little fires would a one hundred and ninety nine times, but like it was that one day with a goalie made like fifty eight saves and it was like a force field was behind him. Yeo, where if it's a one game series, goodbye, yes, by be bad. The conversation. We had this conversation amongst the Boord of governors before, because it's interesting because when you get to college they are one game there. What they had say a tournament. It's you play the game, you'll when do you go on? You lose, you go home. Yeah, obviously it's a different juniors is different because you pay money and you have a longer regular season, etc. But it's interesting right, like look at the NHL. The NHL had that whole first I don't even know what they called it, playing around in the bubble. Yeah, last year that was bet. That was best of five and immediately they've already said this season every round, every playoff series, has to be best of seven. The best of fires were kind of fun. I think. What I think to your what you're the point you're trying to you're getting at, Jeff, is like when there's the last games to determine a winner, that you grip the stick to the little bit tighter in that contest or contest that pucked up may go bar down sales into the plexi behind the goalie instead, or to the netting or you know, all sorts of different places. No, it's true. It's like it's different for everybody. Right. As a coach, you have to coach differently in a one game series that you do in a three game series. Not that coaches folded up if they have a bad game one, but you're like, you know what, if the team's playing like you know what in front of them, maybe I pull a goalie, maybe I try to fire them up, maybe I put the backup in. If you're a situation like all the teams have this year. There's a lot of one a, one B situations with goaltenders. So the teams playing bad in front of him. You know what, you guys don't deserve. You don't deserve this goalie X, I'm putting in the backup because you guys are playing like Jack. So you're being like Jack. Thank you for holding back the goal. Orn there twice. Jeff, did you go back and listen to the goal on from last week's podcast? Well, in send in the group chat. Bro He did, though. I got it all right. Haven't that muted? Oh that's why, my God, tell us how you really feel. Pretty. Answer that is just agree. Yes, about well, Don she watch to respond. Be We all drop what we're doing, but you remember, run down, we cannot look at her for forty hours and kind of when we get to the hotel. Please not looking pretty till Wednesday. All right, I already dude. I already know I'M gonna be growing up in like my my flyer socks, my flyer sweacher and the my leggings, like my high sock pulled over my swatch fit, I mean my leggings in my hoods, going to be on them, going to be like. So she knows she's going to be fled up entering that hotel. Dude, that hotels absolutely sick. You're not going to be in rangers gear. Not going to be seventh gears. No, the seventh swords will be pack on the bag once they make it. It's the first thing going in the in the mid support, the home venue that we're going into. anyways, to close the cut, to close the door on the...

North Division. Last week, shoot, we're still in the noise for crazy. Last week I brought up a debate. I brought up three debates. Right, hey, blah, blah, players, this player and that was a great segment like that. Well, I bring it back this week. WHO WE'RE gonna go? WE'RE gonna go one at a time, because last week no one noticed that I did a player from the north of the player from the central and a player from the south. So now we're going to go one of the time. If we go through the division's me, because I haven't even said into the two players are yet. I know I said I want to go fuse. Okay, so we're in the north. Well with the avalanche, I want to go for the South ancheling firms. Well, we're going to get to the south. We break down the South Division and the first, for every run, for every money. Can we do the NHL First? Then we'll give back to the south. So he an. The debate in the North Division for the avalanche is who would you rather have in gold tomorrow? Matt Lane or George Mc Michael? Only God, that question makes me want to eat myself off a bridge. Shoot, Bro I'm I see, I just sa you know I'm first, back up, sit my God. All right, anyways, I just interviewed curious George Mc Mike for Brits commits on Friday. See June, do I mean Jeff is bowed down me and Helen Cookston's like why, on that one episode would you teasing my epic, my future interview so many times and never saying my name? But when it comes to Nathan Young and George Mc Michael, or like, here comes within our you, here comes younger. All Right, Pat Lane, Matt Lane stats last season for the AB seventeen six and three. Well, a one hundred and eighty one goals against, a forty safe percentage and three shutouts. Of course that's over. That's over. Twenty six total starts committed to Steven Simpson after just one season in the league. George played in a few games last season, but ten to be exact, as Brittany did mention our five. I'm sorry, as Brittany I'm sure mentioned on an interview, we also got some time with the EHLP team. But then come back this season and he has been like the guy. Ronan Mobili has got a number of starts himself, but twenty so far for George, with a sixteen, three and one record, a two point two goals against, a thirty eight safer centers and three shut out. So he's one win behind. He's a little bit higher up with the goals against average, one point eight, one to two, pound and two and he's pound two points behind. So sorry, O, two points behind save percentage, but of course I'm going curious. Joel still has a few games left. And then the thing about Matt Lane. I think it's tough. Is like we never got to see playoff Matt Lane. Yep, like we still see playoff ordered Michael either, though we saw a playoff Nathan pick it like a wait. Want to know another reason why I want to pick George Mac Michael? Because his mom is the goat. Oh my God. Oh well, I have another shout out. I'm another mom shot up, but that's where later in the episode. Well, I will say this about Mrs Mcmichael. She'SS literally G almost every game. I know. I actually talked to George. I said if she's not there next weekend at the GRANNIC Cup, I'm going to cry. But she's definitely there when he plays. Oh yeah, and dude, he said today he goes if my mom saw you tomorrow, because I guess they play tomorrow, right, or this weekend or something? Yeah, when this drops on Thursday, yes, yeah, he's like, my mom's going tomorrow. You're going to be there in a Micno, and let me in Florida. Like yeah, and he's like, Oh my God, you would love to see when I'm like, I've missed that lady, like he's my shoes, switches ends based off what and he's on. Dude, she's literally such a beauty. I love that woman and it doesn't rattle them at all. He enjoys it. No, did you ask, as you ask these superstition question? Oh, yeah, no, I did. I did. I did, I did. I was. I'm sorry, sorry, yes, you have. So he puts this stick in the same spot every time he gets on the ice for warmups. Yeah, if you guys want the answer to why he does that, listen to my goddamn episode. Yes, but any on Monday. And then he does this thing with the water bottle where he likes sports it, and then watches the east drop o to the ice. And it's like you guys don't know when you hear the it's were exactly coming out on Mynday. Yeah, but with that, let's transition into the central now, which we're not going back and forth about toughest. But guys who want who are the chiefs? I did. Who are the WHO are the Whiz Boys? Western man whore the railers for the INSURT, Blah, blahh. He's a five hund wizards back to five hundred, Fifteen, seventy, wait, one as of today. Actually, I'll talk about my stuffitely...

...into fantasy. Sorry, never mind, no, I just have like my mom shut out, but that's for the fantasy because it's about one of your players. I just gave it away. Hell, a bad no, it's stop all right, anyway. So moving on to the central. Hello everyone, how are you doing today? I hope you're doing right. The BJR is going through a little bit of a slump, but that's okay. We'll know as internally. And to game winning streak. Who are slopping? Folks, were slopping two games, two game one of the seper want to eight of the last ten, but you know what we're going through, US swamp guys, and we call those benders. You're not a bender, unfortunately. Every look at the first three teams in that division. I wanted is I haven't really, I haven't had time. They've all wanted to their last ten. Is that good? Yeah, all three teams swamp with. Who is it? It's wizards. Wait, whiz bags are in. Oh S streight, shouldn't say that. Are The are the East Coast Wizards and third place right now currently? Yes, no, that's actually crazy. What's up, Freddy and that Middle Section, those so tight hawks? Yes, and it was a team that I always keep saying, realer, railers, real and there's one player, why? Kyle, the goaltender, to Marco, oh to to Marko, was not admit my soon. No, but I said it before. The netmind the thing. You smart, but yeah, so, come on's on fire. I think he's got thirteen or fourteen wins already. That's our future, Yeh road to the EHL story. Stefan Hani Hank. That's really oh too so you know what Stefan will be at the end of the season? Not Thirty like me. It is getting. It's Kyle. Why, you're five years off from that. So so we're cooling anyways. Cool. Honak will be a strong for rookie of the year. Boy, Dante, tear money, look out, someone's coming for the rule royers. Who who? There's when you? When you think about it, though, there's also another candidate in that division who may save it for Roy. Yes, from your team. I don't know how you haven't screamed his name, Andy Moore. Broken. I'm not absolutely brain dead, like chill out, please, holy but it's too I was called him a Moore on the broadcast Yeah Day. Pretty's like. Wait to watch it head over the a Andy Wore, Yep, j Moore to a Moore. And if any of our doesn't no, no, if anymore doesn't win Roy, I will storm the capital. As in Neil's house. Isn't the issue? Headquarters all of a sudden on seeing and they like this crazy girl. It's she doesn't have the new address yet for the new hostead you'll believe it out not next it. Well, well, I I guess I'll start to tease this because I hadn't really had a chance to tell jeff yet, because Jeff Hasten hired for a job. Jeff, you, Jeff, and not you and I, are also going to be hosting one more event. All while we're down in the finals. We're going to be going to be you and kyle going to be interviewing players and stuff on the outside for sorry, I should probably let you finish. Yes, so on Friday night after this fifth and Sixth Round Robin Games take place over the P no, Friday is still eh Shell and and Friday night we're going to be having I guess you could tenally call it the second annual banquet, but we're going to be doing it. Let's do it virtually. Oh, okay, so we're going to announce all the award winners that night. So what am I going to be doing? I still don't understand. You're going to be interviewing every single player that you can. What? In the lobby of the Renaissance or the Sherton? Sure, wherever this? Yes, wait, is that that really yes, okay, all your rings report we is my God, I have a comment to make. But when the recordings is how we're going to announce the award winners, because it kind of hit me this past week, like when's the right time to do it? Number one, we're going to come up with the award winners. I'm not going to tell gritty any of them because she'll tell them attitude of time that they one to send me who the Roy is. That's all I got. But second, the NFL announces all of their ward warners the night before the Super Bowl. Yeah, they do, like it's it comes at a very weird time. So obviously, like when's the right time to do it? Like, and it's one of those things where I still have to figure out how we're going to even come up with the award winners, because in a normal year I have to call the people because nils too lazy. I'm getting nils to me things today. I'm right to come yield and lazy. So, but what I was getting at more is like New England...

...guys don't really vote from Atlantic guys and vice versa. Right, when you don't play each other, they're seeven, the less really can ye. So I have to figure out. Yeah, I have to figure out how we're going to really determine, like you know, the big awards, the MVP, the Roy, the coach of the year, that's stuff. figure out how we're going to figure out the all EHL team right, because we're going to have three forwards, study in the goalie who are like all ehl first team, a second team, and then each division will have their own all conference. But I figured it the best way to announce it will be while we're down there. We're going to do it quick show on Friday night. I have kind of like the banquet a few years ago. I don't really know what script to come up with. What we're going to figure it out on the fly, for sure, and we'll announce. Will announce the Roy there, which maybe it's one of those two guys. It's a really interesting division, though. I think will start by saying kind of like how we know the avalanche are going to get the number one seed. The Rangers, if my math is correct, are targeted to get it either Saturday or Sunday if they win this weekend gang, and that of course includes a first round by and if that happens, it almost effectively walks in the express versus the warriors, as that to seven. But then to Jeff's point, if you're three, four, five, six, that battle amongst those four teams like that's intense. And the one big part of it that makes it so unique is for almost for two of them, I believe, the trip from their home ranks to the seahawks is over a hundred and twenty five miles. So if that's the case, the higher seed hosts all the games and that's that's when you're cern the pittells on woe the WHO to most. But this is the only state where that's really a thing. Right, like Exeter to Spartans to avalanche. That would never happen unless you drove back and forth six times to get two hundred and twenty five. But that, but that's what makes it interesting. I mean I'm sure bills in a bony would point out to us that that wizard seahawks series last season or last year, we're all want, all three games were one by the road team. But like, I have a feeling, and that the other day on something. Yeah, I have a I have a feeling. Yes, I think it may come down to Walpole Rangers in the finals for the Central Division. But I think one of those teams three through six is going to give someone a really hard time on that road. I run for their Morney. Would I mean early favorite was east coast. I was just going to say Nice, he's coast. FLAD's each coast Johnson's. He's coast poppas. I was just say puppet, just at the record if for the lizard bags, I saw that he passed up Hanzika and glad wis. Well, was well, that's another one. I mears to me who those are? Guys are remember like they're burning my head for their line charts from like years ago. It's like, Yep, was well called This Day of Sixteen Times a showcase, Jeff. If you if you played the ehl before Brittany came to the EHL, then who doesn't count exist because they have league was form when she came in. Right, Dude. That's why I was like that's a I was so excited to say Ponto's overblad's day the other day and I'm glad you remember it, because I'm pretty would have been like who, and then I literally was like who's Okerblad and Perez from the old Wolkesberry, scrant nights from there, fourteen wokes by a real let me I see something. I know you're high on the railers, but I'm just thinking the seahawks. I get it the wizards are hot, but I feel like the seahawks and your boy coaches, Annabony, you're on the podcast. I meant formerly, but to keep cod guy, I don't know. What do you think about the seahawks? They have the they have what can win in the playoffs. They have a goalie that can get hot and carry them. They they strike me as a team that's consistent. They play hard and you're just Britney's looking at me like I'm crazy. I just consistent is not the word I would use, okay, is that they're playing the ice, not the record. You're right. And these these guys they do like. They're known, I think, for like. They're hard work. Yeah, and they're gonna get it now. They they're grinders, grinders exactly so, which is good complayoff time. Usually, come playoff time it's a lot of tighter games. You don't see the seven of threes to sixty four. So that's a good point, coyle. And they won their first playoff game last year, right in and seahawks. I almost said the wrong version of their team name. A lot of yeah so, but I'd like you said to I mean you got, you got Peyton durine, you got play Moore, who had go pander and if, if it was,...

...if I was to put my life savings of my bank account on it. So seahawks was here. Two wins, wizards. Sorry, sorry, zanner. I'll be bous bags. I like new wiz bags goalie, and they like the way the Whiz I need to call them with them, sorry, the way the wizards have been clicking lately, the kick clack and their vibe and they're getting they're set in Recorde for assists. Not a big do not disrespect either towards the wizards. I mean that we have during no, we like the clearly it's awesome to see. I would never talk trash on the finches of the seahawks hockey club. It's one of those like feelings where I'm just like how seahawks in the playoffs. I see it, I see your poet like. I'm not saying grinding team right once. Are Not Garbage. No, there's no honest God garbage. There's no garbage team, and I called leader here. Now, other leaks. There's no garbage team in this league. Now it is your warriors, statistically are our worst. To you. They beat all the best teams. They only eat wins, but they beaten all the best teams. So right, I agree. I agree. There's no trash. There's no trash. It's amazing how how Poi Jeff can say at then Britney's like trash. She's like, she's my you're see kids. Yea, Bro, why are you trying to say what was so, wasn't I jeff is like the Linkedin version of me. Yeah, there we go, instagram versus reality. anyways, me as, look at me right now. That actually sin. INSTAGRAM. INSTAGRAM versa, instagram versus reality starring Britney. Hard start a catfish like us. I'm yea. anyways, are are set off the visions brought to you. But pritty, she possess her own segment anyways. So they should player debates in the central division comes from the wizard's wizards bags, chance Gorman, chance Gorman, or Ryan ters, you did not just do me dirty like God's so rude. Are you know? But Cha Ryan hurt says, you played a full season as a wizard, right, Yo, that's what the point? No, but I don't know what Hey, Ryan, Murrie or Maria with the Pittsburgh Penguins. One, two Stanley Cups. Yeah, that was all the senators. No, chance Borman. Chance, Gorman, not even a question. Sorry, can work interest seasons. goaltender. No, dude, chancy, Chauncey RW, if anyone knows the story behind that word. If you don't, word, CHAUNCY RW is like Mr Klutch. I'm a I'M gonna go bar down, like talk, like absolutely Mr Clutch. For the whizz bags, chance players. Forty nine total games last season. Yeah, how many points? And Buddy? Sixty eight. Yeah, like word. So this is more. Winters has made the transition to the ECW. He has been more of a you lost this sky. Besides his Michigan goal. You know he's not Mr Klue A, like Chancy, like boy, I don't know. I'm big YIG chance. No, like chance. Just like when you needed to score goal act here for the wizard, are automatic chance. This year, if you were to score a goal from the wizards, aren't a automatic web automatics to fur a personally personal automatic thesis. Guy Isn't clutch. I was gonna say that. Listen, this time you're saying like if you look at it, if you look at it statistically, we're going to take its whole point of his Damn Second Idiots, Jess Gorman, transcormon is like me, and also those pokemon. Now we know I Gorman's up abouts there. It's all it's all about statistics, Jeff and kyl, it's all about statistics. But you also like think, are you, Mr Wizards? Who would you make? Bud Well, chance Corman average one point three nine points per game last year. Ryan Terris has averaging one point three three so far this year. So that the difference would you pay? Difference is not as not far off. I will say terst is probably more that the playmaker to chance the score. So if I had, if I if we, if we've put Mick Michael on our line up so far, and I know what's coming in our future debate, I guess you could say I'm gonna probably start with chance right now. I think because he he did put up when he needed a goal last season. Maybe it was maybe the different comp Harrison that we should make his harley versus Darby, Harley, or Darby versus terse, but chance did.

He was pretty automatic. He had thirty. Great, so you're wrong with me? Yes, I mean he was a he was a pretty special talent for that team. They that was like last year's wizards team almost had like the bruins line right the posture. Not burgs are on, Marsians with Gorman, Harley and Darby, and when the top lines don't score, you had to have the other line score. But when the top lines were going, you probably were going to win still. So the boys are bossing. Last year they for real. You know, the wizards seemed a little deeper this year. It's a good point to do they do or definitely do? Seems like here's a lot of sadder first line. Yeah, but that first line for us, I don't know. I just w answered that. Blanchards, Nice addition to that to you already's rum, because you guys know better than I and this is a question for all three of you. Fair question. Are the wizards tougher this season last year? For heard of is they're going to be a little more physical. They're not. I think last year was more like let's go astins. You know I jumped in last year. Some people don't know I followed a little bit on the HL side last year. But my senses this year, and this is maybe why the wizards are a little more successful and hot as of Weit, I sense a little more grittiness and I maybe I'm wrong with the word tougher, but I for the wizards tougher, like just last year's was. These team was like finesse and I don't know, like I'm thinking of like your friends, like preorb's, like soft play instead of a Zach per, easy garbage jel. Let's get down in dirty, let's get the job done. Don't you think? Like like Darby, was more like, I don't know, like low key, like soft like stuff. I feel like sometimes staff will like go at it and like, I feel like, I don't know personal opinion, tursts will go at it like tersts, like I'm just gonna sit here like watch these people like freak. I'm not like not that my team right, like last year, like Darby, Lokey Chance, Oh my God, I'm at in chance dropping the gloves. I'd pee my pants laughing and I'm even cry. Last know how many peliments he had all year. Last year, no more than eight. TACHOO cordon also eight regular season, two in the postseason. Right, exactly like their first that's crazy, dude. They would never last year like be like drop the bitch boys, like there weren't no avalanche, like let's beat the absolutely blank out of each other. Now I'm looking for answers, I'm just asking a question. And No, no, the wizards seems tough for this year. The last year's was. Yeah, but the wizards are not like the if I had to use an adjective to describe a wizards team on a normal basis, tough and well, last to say Yus an. The last year, though, no, I'm saying like the average tough, like yeah, boys, let's drop them, like I'm gonna. I'm gonna Chris Arens. You, like let's go just physically happen on the wizard. No, not, not so much like one dimensional. It's important in this league. Like you look at the APPS, the Rangers, the eighty sevens of this world, they have a little bit of everything. So like they're mixed. Yes, and hope is that the wizards are a little more dynamic than they were in the past. If I'm captain, so want to drop him at Wow, last year's team, last year's team put up seven hundred and fifty two total penalty minutes. But that's in forty six games, in thirty three so far this season they have to fun. In thirty three so far this season they have five hundred ninety. So, without even pulling out the calculator, the math points towards this year's team averaging. But but we'll see you. Those couple games that I've done, or no, three now so far. Oh God, then I don't know how to behave. They've been some shippy affairs. I don't have to like. Oh, just the building. All right, guys, let's go. No, that's like Massachusetts Sag in the building. We haven't seen anyone else. I think that's I think that's honestly, and that's a really good point, Brittany. Actually, with all the instinct games, that's why these teams are like dude a mate each other because they're on all they play. Imagine being the central playing the same three piece of central and north and north. That's what I meant. Okay, everyone know what I was talking about. Wrong. The central by me at the north. Doug guys off Stadd Dude, you're to think of board Alan to play the same three, like I'd lose my mind. You know, I'll seehawks are all right, which one of our nine? freaking not nine, I'm exaggerating. People are gonna apply, like at least they have more people. You know, you family, you know. It's rest of the see on that plays out. The build it off that point for how that plays out the playoffs. Like you've played the same three teams for a while, but then the central's played eight different teams. So then when it comes to the frozen finals of your playing teams that you haven't seen all year, are the central teams more definitely going to be wild.

And it's just this up what's curious today. But I were you tuned in to day center, Rabin, but I last two days at the protector and ducks twenty at the call kind of quoted the centers wild. Quote. Quote, well, well stripped out, and I think of duck sauce from the China restaurant. Is it? Is it cause it's wild or like everything ducks on the duck sauce with my I thought she means good fingers on. I want Chinese food. We got to get Chinese. He's wattles every night and getting blasts. I'm shows. So I thought that Brittany was referring to mild as opposed to wild. I don't know where she was going with that one, but we are shifting down south now. I won't start with the debate yet because I know the debates and a half her shook. We're going to get to that in the second down south. A week ago we kind of as a group said Maryland the to Maryland and we had started to kind of we had started to kind of write off the rough eyes a little bit, and then they sweat Maryland. If anyone's in a slump is the FREAKING team Maryland. And now alo in the bunch are waking up and they're on a four game winner and there's like hey, hey, hey, yeah, I mean there's there's no doubt about this. My ducks here and slamp they are. I mean loss rangers, slump, ducks slope eight of ten, not something that's the loss of feel. Slump, though, something I can blowing out of the water. They're they're losing these games. Are they're pulling their goalie every game and yeah, it's a one, like they're not just getting like acule yeah, but literate. Did they have some Sero one organization into me? Yes, that's true. Blue Lights Tonight anyways. But I think protext had a little bit of turmoil that we will not get into on the podcast, but I think that has something to do with the you know, topsy, Turvinus, Kyle, you would obviously know way more being a part of the organization. But there I got to say, like, I give them credit. One of the best games I saw you, and I said it in the last written piece, was sevens protest the last Friday. Protect put out everything they possibly could. All that was the game. They led to nothing. No, it is tied after two periods, so you know they're down a goal. They pull the goalie again. It's an empty nick goal and you know, I contacted Adam Jolie after the game, the head coach of then's. I just wanted to post game quote on the win and I didn't want to say anything. But, and I'll see it over the PODCAST, protect deserve to win that game and I think the sevens and know that, and I can tell you that because again, it's when you score and I know Neil, you just you disagree with me, which is fine, because the e sevens are a championship caliber team and those teams are burn their wings and they earn the look, but protect put it all out there. Yeah, this is a team with less than ten wins this year, giving a championship caliber team trouble. So this goes my point being is and this is respect for the league, just the parody overall, and I can't wait until the playoffs. Baby. Yeah, I mean and and that division. Obviously the eighty sevens have already clinched the one, but then there's two separate races going on right now. There's Marilyn and the little flyers competing for second and the first round by but also making sure their three so they guarantee holl ice. But really, that battle between four, five, six rough riders ducks apple core like that's going to get even tighter, because the apple court have a bunch of games to play also, and you're almost avoiding a trip what could be to Maryland. All three games are there or dressed outside. Yeah, it's that's been up there saying it's reality here for this little little bit. Yeah, little flyers to Apple Cores, a hundred and twenty over hundred twenty five miles to rough riders, is to doc say isn't so. It's going to be interesting the sea because if it works out one way, all the Games are in one location of but works on another, we're going back and forth and it'll be weird. It's interesting to see which team starts to really assert themselves, to put together more than just two straight wins, because we've seen a lot of that. Right, we've seen you know, obviously I know the little fires have won four straight, but the rough riders were slumping one two straight but then lost two straight afterwards. What's going to what's going to keep happening with them? What's going to happen with Protech? I was project going to come out of this five Gamer, the apple...

...core. Right. We probably at one point we'll get the fantasy, but we said to Kyle like you're picking Jackson Bernard. How many games is he truly going to win? He got kyle it ton of points this past week because he still on his head like three times. So that that that battle between four, five and six, I think deserves us as much attention as three through six and the central I think is there similar to player on Apple Core? By the way, who do I think is the most talented? Yeah, Michael, I leave. Yeah, I'm going to seven. Collins all, yeah, well, man, Oh, yeah, leave us, my boys. You know, a fantasy guy, but wow, really impressed with to seven today. I mean we're talking a guy who was cousy to host, like Dante Terremani Esk and I know I'm keeping it in the south. Relax, you people in the north. I broadcast these Games, I see them in person. This is all I can do. Do you want to invite me to a game? Please do anyways, to seven for apple core really impressive, super impressive those guys. Yea to two great points that you just brought up that wanted to mention. At first, when I saw the box store today, I was like, Oh wow, jeff, awesome day for you, hat trick and the CISS. But then I look for he know, for Colin Callinan. We're going to get to fantasy, but I look at I'm looking at it, I'm looking at it. I go how does he have an assist on a goal that he scored? Oh, I mean, oh, come on there, see that. I could show you how that's done and I show you. I can show you. He passed it to himself, then passed over here, who passes the head? So he actually has the secondary assists. He's still on a hat trick, though. But before we get to fantasy, Kyle just said one other name and let's just no the debate right out there, because we have to get to our salve it. That is my thing. Ourselves a bit. Is just the real south bred of the fake one. This is a real one. Welcome. Going first again, one stroll from last season. Andrew the Moose Maynard. Oh No, I hate this already. I hate this. I hate this or this season, not last season, this season. Dante, Teamonti, dude, at screw you, trully, not just kidding Roy. That would be Teremonti, because he's one boy. Last year did so. Don't take your money's name is Roy. I don't call him done to anymore. I strictly for get my Sop Roy, beauty. Love Them. Don Hermani is now prince. He is just like a name, a little prince like. Yeah, I love the Kid, like prins the artist. Personally, I yeah, I know, he's like the fake Michael Jackson. Yeah, okay, yeah, rest these princes. My mom likes Prince. I don't know. Need to totally different styles of play, right. Who's is literally an actual moves? I mean there's his freaking nickname for cars. I six to two hundred. Why? Royce like shifty from crafty, like Roy, weaves in and out and is like Watch House night, borrow you, let's gone. You'll just spit his drink again again. Roy's is Terremonti's all home. If you just like hit that fifteen second a head button your WHO's Roy? We should talk about Terremonti. No. So boy Moose is like a trucker powerhouse. He he played a few games last year with the trucks. Can See all team now. He's yeah, he'd probably should. I don't know. He goes the tops of my boy pat or in like big Fan. Go jump those dude go rounds. I love the UMOS, but smart. I just go smart. Yeah, he's a he's I think he studi's computer signs hid to be the advisor. Anyone needs an advisor, please hit my line. Moving on. Yeah, I just go royd over as a video of them. He had he being Mannard, had thirty goals and thirty one assists and forty one games last season, eight game winners. That could he and he may have been, over all, the best player we had over the course of the All star weekend. Like he he was a factor and every every single one of the three games against the college teams that he plays a size of the freaking people. Yes, that's true, he's I remember, but the showcases and see, that's what it makess like like nieces, also like a beauty. We can see those teams this year. So yeah, like I missed moves, like last year, seventeen, two years ago, seven steam Damn Miss. So last season, Roy Dante Teterre Moni had fifty five conducted. So Weird. Had Fifty five points in forty four games, five game winners. So this yours, mvpkys. So far this season he has forty six and twenty nine, three game winners. Boys like Roy Lately, not to like trash my forward and Ka pseudo, sorry, but like lately. Okay, late, I'm got the top of...

...the points of big. There's a d sevens right, like. No, no, I'm not being rude. I had kept the kid on my fantasy team, for God's sake. Roy Lately has been more of like the Ari if any would again. Let's go back to the chance scorman thing. If someone scoring for sevens lately it's Nick Swayne or it's Roy. K's been more of the assist guy, like Brian Turth. Okay, I'm connecting things. connected. Boy, he's been pretty hot to you and he's in the line. I really said Mantlins, he wouldn't score a point for the US year. But and it's too Ye, you report that. WHO's like? You know? I don't. He was gonna be playing anymore. But that WHO? Who the Heck said that? Fake News? DONALD TRUMP? Fake those? I'm just saying. I'm giving him credit. He's been hot to know, but so he's on the line. I'm just saying ter money, Maddie B. I think it's Maddie be. Damn, I fit of no idea, I know. I'm just saying goal scoring or lately isn't in the new like Wayne. Look, sorry, the new kid on the eat steppings NCAA commit with lynden worth. Yes, I think he's going to like Mars whilst good swam kind of hasn't been in the lineup. Maybe it's an injury thing. So he was sway's been tearing it. Wasn't there a Projeckin? I think Adams just letting the non committed full c a turn right in a bubble. Yeah, he popped in a couple of goals lately, as I should pay attention to my fantasy players, but it's in my top plays of the week, Buddy. So He's been. But I tell you, a plan, a big up against protecting though the east. That's one saying non committed have a turn. I like this distributor versus goal score debate, though, because he soon is got eleven as power play assists. Harmonia is seven powerplay goals. I'm saying, but this termine scrolls cayu Suda. Okay, sure, okay, come on, don't know. It's just messed with royal most an. Interesting to mean what? It would a tough situation for them. Things right, tough life. So many could one regulation loss? We've got two mvps on the team. We're didn't beating about who's the better MVP. I would even say three. It's got makes some downs geks. I would say MVP could even be swaying. Personally, it can be swayny Suda or Roy I would my man, I got to give you over sween. I'm just saying SCOR lane has been greatly improved since last year, in my piss and opinion. Okay, so who's an MVP? CROSSBER Malkin. I hate the penguins. Okay, you mal is, Malcon is sweets. I'm not brain dead. He's comparing them. He's saying, Malcolm, I don't know that you have getty bulk in like this is a compliment, poison like this is like we're turning with the EV sevens here, like this teammate's. We know there's no sweeener. Is More malking. Where you shooter, or Terimoni or Crossby? Yeah, we know you like some more Scheel, like rowing. Crosby. Will keep this debate going again. Next week I'll bring wiremies division. I'll also rattled. Right now, a player that I have is jersey, just got traded from the Red Sox. WHO THAT INTENDE? Oh, it's a fishy pretty good. Where do you go? Maybe? Maybe going to the mets of the royals. It's part of this. Anyways, let's dealer to let's let's go to fantasy. Now that I'm shook. Before we wrap things up, here's what to watch more this week in the east show. And with that it's time for the WHO fantasy challenge, brought to you buy but Chu Cheese, brick up and pizza and Pasla, your home for authentic Italian dishes, catering and group dining. Check up their party pizzas and specials at Brucugee'scom I boys, it's good into fantasy. Oh, you know, take fantasy. This guy didn't finish the last place for it. Yes, so let's congratulations as a first I have to do kind of a I'm gonna sellee. Let's go. I have to do kind of a quick recap because I appreciate us taking longer with the debates from each division. So just to rip through where each person finished. That the area to get the graphics. We didn't. It doesn't send him in the group text. So overall, this past week somehow Brittany, even if the rosters got trim still put on ninety points. I Don know how. Actually it's because of the nods, because of Papa got like all time leading assistant was his history Kyle, with seventy eight point for this past week. I had seventy point six. Jeff had sixty four. Just a quick recap of of players that we can you tell me who did get up my teams any I'm wanting idea.

I'm gonna do that that before before we end this thing, because we're already up against it. This was a great episode. But the players that went off for Brittany, I mean any medicines. She mentions you Stuta, like he's like not doing anything for her, but he quietly goes right at Moreno assist, stowed a goal, free assist, the power play, point of the game, win or eleven points. So your Studa had eleven fantasy points. Finallys had twelve to lynth key's had seventeen of a petrol of scoring changes. So Papa Petros, with his four assist game, had thirteen and then she got a win a piece for new and Muler, which helped. There's those two goalies combined for seventeen point six points. So that helped to get the notty point six. Kyle had the second best week. I mentioned it earlier. Will Get out of the basement. Chick Jack Sind Bernard. I think he had four starts, a hundred and twenty seven saves this past week. But up we put up twenty three point four and when you combine them with the twelve that Michael Leva got them, we're already at thirty five points just from his Apple Corps players. Not Nine a piece for swaying and Archiepelco, and I gues said, seventy eight point for transition into my week, I had seventy point six. Egan Schmidt started off very hot. Didn't finish as hot over the week, but he had thirteen total points. A smooth six assists week for Ryan Turus led to twelve total points. Way Shout out to Mrs First, my new my new friend, hello girl. Also, Dante Terremani would just talked about, got me ten fantasy points and the difference between picking up two wins like Brittany didn't, I didn't. My Two goalies did not get two wins and they combined for five point six points and their starts. And then we go to Jeff. Jeff, I mentioned your hat trick for Colin Calinan today, the last day of this week. He put up seventeen total points for you this week, and Felman put up eighteen total points. So when the rest of your lineup starts clicking here. This upcoming week. You're going to go from fourth to first week. You better, you better be off. Donny Feltman like. You needn't give Donny from the wall rise and good we'll sake. Michael and Palmer East picked up wins for Jeff. That added up to sixteen total points. Yes, get ahead, Gulie. Wins like you. Guys are goals assistants. Get them still, consul ass. You had a few guys that just for about, lack of a better word, pull up, put up goose eggs. That won't though, like Ryan Bailey, didn't get any points for you this past week. Marcus, come my gosh, roll me over to Tim Cookie in the game. I did the other day. Nothing all big ECO last week. Those guys will get points for you again. And overall standings, Brittany still leading the way at nine hundred and sixty nine point eight. I'm at nine fifty. May. We're six, Jeff, is that eight hundred and seventy one point four, and Kyle at seventy three or seven thirty six point two. We have three weeks left of this for two roster was crazy. Is that how many days are left in the regular season. It's the ten we go, we go until about the first birth days in fifteen days. Yeah, nuts, right, absolutely nuts. But a few more weeks of this and guys like it was hard to trip to trim down to six four two, it's going to be harder to trim down to three two one. Whom you teacher friend? He Still gonna get a hundred points when she has three two one. But in the plan, you know my we I had to bake two. Demon they doing? Could I go ways to think Georgey like Sho Sonylman. Am I am, I wrong hair and I'm mantes trying to get myself hope. Quite frankly, doesn't matter where you are right now on the standings for fantasy. Well, yeah, it does, because point totals. It's a matter of like the point totals do carry over to them, like bringy, like, Hey, look at the boss Jew Rangers Advance to the finals, like that's it, like she's in. Yeah, I mean the partys do carry over and I'm with the boys. I mean. Well, the point totals do carry over in the postseason. The points that we accrue in the postseason will only be from the first, second and third rounds. It does not include the finals because we're not going to be. We're going to be for unbiased. We kids individuals at the finals. We talked about this last year, that we're trap and that's we talk about this every year. True saying with the Hl Oh, yes, yes, yes, said last year, like we can't catch it. Yeah, after this year's finals will post Pritty's cheer from a goal that got scored to finals ago when in and she got her see elevated off there like is Alev Street through echoing through the side of fires.
