He recap the openingweekend of a two thousand and twenty one twenty two season and make a fewchanges to the ehle power Rin kings during the weekly run down furtheralong. We provide the latest update on the e crew fancy challenge with the tworookies jumping out to the early lead. Finally, the group highlight some gamesto watch in the fontal stress before the Wester showcase. What's up e crew, does it finally feellike hockey season a little bit? We had some game action.A little bit more than we have last week when we record a gag, as I alwayssay, Jeff It. The off season is tecnica five months long, but it feels likelonger right, like yeah, it has five years it's a seven month season,followed by a five month off season and as dumb as it may sound. The offseasonfeels like it's longer than the actual season. Fair. I think that's very fair.I think most coaches players and staff would agree with us. Anthony would sayyou you've been around of the HL for a while. Well, personally, I think partof it was because I couldn't make it to the frozen finals last year, so myseason ended a little early and yeah. It just felt like the offseason keptdragging on forever, and the other thing too is that I was not able to really go to the tseven training camp as much as I would have liked, or in years past. So Ithink that was another reason why it just felt like forever. This isLawrence first off season, so I guess we can't really ask her how as yourselfwe'll ask you in a year, but we can ask her to call me out for the news that I did not acknowledge on lastweek's podcast yeah. I was surprised about this from you. Consider is likewhat this is like me's best friend, they golf together, there's some moreteams that are finally starting some games this week, and one of them is thered train from what I hear they're. Finally leaving the station to regularseason o they are without their usual conductor,Mr Cody Campbell, which I'm kind of sad, because everyone hiped him up and itseems like he's going to be cool to meet, but he departed us for anotherleague, but he so seems like he's doing pretty well for himself when everyone'spretty happy for him. So it's good to see he's got another opportunity, butsad to see him go before I got to meet him. Our usual conductor, like I, Idon't know why I didn't say it last week, like cody's pool on go it curesby this. To me, we share the same birthday. I am one year older, but healso has a daughter. So he told me time is chicken, so that was the last thing you said Ibefore he left time is ticking, but it's not like by the time I come back.You should be a father. I was like that. Want O. that's that's sure. That's alot of Esso with that. Let's get eleven down it's time for the crews weekly rundown and the e, so we can run down, is proxy by the Juror Hockey Podcast yourhome for junior hockey, news knowledge and nonsense, checked him out a Tjepodcast com. So opening weekend, handful of gamesnumber of teams played number of teams different. The first thought that comesto mind and getting on this is how do the Rangers beat the spartans three twoon Friday and over time, and then the avalanche beat this part in seven,nothing the next day, but then the Rangers beat the avalanche doesn't makeany sense. It doesn't make a ease to me way back on this way. Back on thisknees. Ere parate T I n. This is, this is something I learned in geometry inninth grade and high school called the transitive property where, if one thingequals one the thing, then the other thing should equal the other things. Soin this case it would be if the junior rangers barely beat the spartans andavalanche all of the SPARTANS. When you use the transitive property, thatshould mean that the avalanche should have a really good game against theBoston Junor Rangers. I did it when I played in high school these players doit in the EH L. I've heard eighty seven talking about it in years past, but itjust doesn't always end up it's a game by game basis and yeah. I guess for the avalanche. Theywere hot one day, but when they went up against the junior rangers, they werejust too strong for them. Yeah, I think Laura was actually thinking about thetransit of property, also right a...

...s that Russell Croiyin up. It justhappened when I saw the Rangers twice, I saw the rangers to take on thespartans on Friday, and then I saw the tap o the ass on Sunday. I think it was those were two like kind of differentgames because it like it was pretty evenly mash in Friday's game becausethey ended up going over time. So, like I thought it was a little evenly Masherback and forth there kind of, and when I saw a Sunday's game, it kind ofseemed like they ran away with it a little bit, because the ABS came outstrong because I pressure they scored the first goal. I believe it was my manDempsey score. The first call I believe, a Tom step got. I he kind of gave him alittle event to at the ginning. I was like okay, maybe they'll come out andeveryone's been telling me Oh prs, like pretty good they're, pretty hot lookout for member. I was like well. I was a putting a little bit of a fight Erpretty early, so I was waiting to see if anything was going to happen and thejar came back and kind of just stormed them. They just they tied it up in oneand after that they just they kept on coming, and I was just we're not therefor it and the ass more returners than I thought to new. I mean Babe. They arethat's a completely new team. The only one I really recognized was Cargas, Ithink, is like one of the only forwards. I recognized from last year's team.Everyone we got boy Clare has a new name. There is Jackson now and net alot of new faces for rich but, as he says, Hashtag one is not enough. Oh myGod, Oh my God, but but are start with the Hass Tag. Let's, like I said thison one of the broadcast, I may have been the salary broadcast, the tyler.Is it too early to put stock in the fact that the spartans lost on Saturday,because that was there back to back right? They played Friday and Saturdayand the avalanche last on Sunday, because that was there back to back theplay Saturday and Sunday, the ranger, as never played back to back theyplayed Friday and Sunday. Is it too early to put a stock in that and allthese players too young to say that they're already tired? Like yes genial,I wonder who I wonder, who schedule A EGAEAN games? They she their ownregular season games and it's not my fault. The schedule like that. That'swhat they picked! Oh calm down, the AW. I wasn't, Iwasn't implying you did anything come on relax! Well, the key word is always you andthen what it comes to scheduling. So, of course, I will acknowledge that inthe moment I think I recognized that that was a very like that was prettyfunny last week, stepping back that was like that was really funny and thenseeing the engagement when he was posted. I was like damn that was reallyfunny actually with their place last week, so I was very good, but I thinkwe're a bit of traffic to on so ye. Yes, right we're going to keep those goingon season long. I no go back to that point. I think I mean a lot of theseguys. The adrenaline pump in to at the beginning of the season, yeah you'reyoung you're, fresh you're healthy, but the adrenaline pumping, and when youradrenaline pumping it eventually will drain and deplete, and you know gettired and these a lot of these guys are moving up from you know: Prep SchoolHigh School Hockey to jury hockey. It's a very different speed, a lot ofdifferent talent and so yeah. Maybe that did have a actual effect on Bjarno playing back to acts butseacoast the ASS did. I think that could be a possibility for sure I don'tknow if I brought it up in last week's podcast or if I brought it up in. Oneof my broadcasts with the HLP Games is that when you have players come frommidgit hockey high school hockey, they don't play twenty minute periods. Sowhen you're playing junior hockey for the first time, that's actually a bigadjustment to get used to playing full sixty minute contests. Yeah Yeah, Icompletely agree er, so I mean it's going to be interesting to see how itplays out. Obviously. Well, I have to make this pointactually because, typically in past years, on Mondays, wehave posted the power rakings. A lot of questions came as to why the powerrankings have not been posted yet this week, because this year they are no longer ravens rankings.That's where everyone can acknowledge that at home, I'm including I amincluding the whole crew, Jeff, Lauren and Anthony and even Justin what hewants to step in here, because what nobody understands, how I do the raking,so guess what now you're all part of it? Okay. So now, if I'm going down you'reall going down with me, so we're going to do them together on the podcasttonight and every week moving forward and releasing them on Thursday. Sopeople can know that when the podcast comes out so do the power rankings. Soobviously I bring that up because going into the season right number one andwinning your first two games, there's no reason that the rangers should movethey're still number one, obviously locked in a a I justin, a anthony just tell you thereill have to vote. I have to hit the...

...button to be able to talk to you areasas on favor of keeping DGR number one, but it's a great transition becauseAdalante to right they beat the part in Stefan, nothing they lose to theRangers three one side Note: I get distracted. Okay, Rangers AwesomeAwesome Week from Chris Jackson right well tremendous and goal guess you iscoming back Nathan Meler shut, so so, when justice,I love Justin gonna love this one, the rich get richer yeahs. I O ye come backnext week, not to you know, he's not playing. I had it the text, one of thetext today that he's not playing till the showcase starts so all right,you're good, we'll get to that sex we'll get to the de it soon. But right.But the point is Jackson. Looked like the best Gilton in the League only weekweek end number one right and they get last year's goal of the year back. Thatseems here that seems fair, so anyways now avalanche. We said when one and onethe team, that's right behind them and wisses. Why I bring this to bat up onthe New Jersey, eighty seven, who beat the little flyers four to one onSaturday and beat t Maryland three to today to the t seven do enough to jumpthe avalanche go up the two Anthony you were on the call, no pressure, because you have to you'regood on his critic to Intae, because I've done these individually for yearsright. I always factor in who you I the strength of schedule whoyou've beat and you know who you've lost to and what they've done againstthe rest of the League. Also. So there has to be some value in the avalanche,losing their game to the Rangers right right. But this is the debate to the t:Seven Tho enough to jump the avalanche. Well, I was obviously on the call forthe HSEN first game against the little flyers and the little flyers havereturning players. They look like a good hockey team that can make somenoise in the division and then yesterday you have the game againstteam Maryland and remember earlier this week, Tea Maryland walloped theConnecticut rough riders by scores of ninety three and eight to three. So thet seven came in and beat that team. So I think beating another experience.Team in Maryland, with a lot of returning players does marry- maybe abump in the rankings yeah, but I don't think the avalanche need to fall anyfurther than three. I would agree with that look. You said those are twofrozen final teas from last year. It is as a a tremendous start justin. Thiswas all Justin's ideas to clap the Justin. For a second golf claps golfcaps, one one is rangers. If you're writing this down, Justin one isRangers two N, a D. Eighty, seven three as avalanche and up until yesterdayafternoon took place. We seem destined not having any chances in the top five.I don't know what to do now, because valley is for real right e. You Know Rita graft what Ibody. What is up Brymat talking a lot to me in the in the off season. He saidhe's going to have a new team and I think they look a little different new.Wouldn't you say then seasons pass. I yes, I mean I mots lying. I have to I'mgoing to pull it up lit while we talk through her. I don't know the last time.Valley started three and all right and that's not that's not a shot at theorganization. That's a credit to what they've done so far right and AndyHines was there for a number of years. I would say what was that the sixteenseventeen season that they had their best season, that we went over yea andthe plan the off season, so I'll Kep I'll get right to that one jeffer right,I would say that would be your best pet if they're going to call them. I have alot that, for some reason I can keep in my head and like restore like there's alot of needs for some reason, there's been thousands of players today, but alot of names. I can't remember who beat who, though, like in every game? O.That's sorry, that's where I have to draw the line right. Also one thingabout the valley junior warriors: I was talking to a cot, Drin Macra, and Iasked him about his quick to an o. Now three notes start after only winningten games last season. So I fraid said that is a rough season and he came backwith. It depends on what you define is a rough season, because they had alsocommitted fifteen players to the NCAA, which was tied for second most in theLeague tied with the t seven, and they had also called up a couple of playersfrom their HLP team. So one thing he described really keeping theinterpested about what the EHL's all about is like they're, still advancingplayers and getting them to the next level, and I think for them to startthree. You know I was just one more thing to add to the repertor is resumeso to speak, and that's one reason why I've been keeping an eye on the valley.Junior worries to also picked off some of the best teams in the league lastyear. If you remember correctly to you yes, I they're all their ten wins weremostly against playoff teams. The expresses the avalaches, you know thosebig gun type teams actually now not the...

...avalanche, because we couldn't play outof state, but that's a story for that time. So, let's set the president rightnow. Can you get moved in the power rankings? If you didn't play, and I it's tough- that is tough. You shouldbecause, like if you didn't play, you don't really have much to change yourlike standings yeah. Other peoples will change but like, if you're not playinglike. Where do you have to go off of a why you get dropped or at well erhere's the way I see it neel. If these teams are so good, then when theydo start playing, they should have no problem working their way back into thepower rankings where they have to prove it. Where you have a team like thevalley junior warriors for them to go three, you know and not include them.That's not fair to them and whatever team gets bumped off if they're so good,then they should also go to a three no start and they should work their wayright back into it. That's a bout point to Mr Anthony new number. Four team sayI I I'll go with that where we oitethere's he dest. I like this deal, you're a fearless leader, captainingthe ship, as we always say, but we're all your you know we're all yoursailors and crewman. So all right back out Lauren, just a take the lumberjacks out of the top five or kick wall pot of the top five. I think it kicks wall plot of the ABOL,sadly, because because he min had like Wydin well have played yet or had tothat's interesting, I mean I think I thought I just should get moved us butlike, but a if they have to play. They have don't have anything to go off likeYe. There's no to everything about like check them out. We don't know how theylook at this season. We haven't seen him right, there's no demerits, but youhaven't done anything. There's no merits either you know, so I don't doanything. IMAGEST said that it works for the e train in the past to wrap upthe EH show, because I've done this on my own. I have said that there areother to that. You have not done this on your Ol, okay, true, but that's whyI I in the past said the teams have been receiving votes, sounds like we're all in consensus ofRangers. Eighty seven avalanche warriors lumber checks, receiving votes, Walpole, Yep and Ithink we're good yeah. It's a were good on to the HLP in the HLP they're, just like theRangers at the in the EH. There's no reason to move the y sevens after a two to an otstar, obviously, because they took care of business in the Games they have to,they had to and so be it from there. The railers didn't play Vermont want apair of games. I think that Yes for mot one a pair of games withthe railers didn't play. I think I think one two three just stays the same.I don't think that Vermont two for two victories propels them past the railers,but we would have to make the one chains at four which is clean and easyfor us that the Rangers beat the avalanche yesterday for nothing and youjust flip flop. Those teams rangers a note new, for I think it's pretty clear,cut simple. How about the rest of you sounds good to me war, any I thatMessin yea for those that are wanting more controversy that will come as moregames get played right. I was going to say we can only do so much with two orthe Games for all these teams. Yeah yeah come the coming weeks, so we'll beit on like donkey con. We, I don't think we need to do any receiving votesat the EHLE, because there wasn't anybody else that I mean the avalanche,that Woche Vision didn't play. I like the avalanche of course, started it forbefore the like before that game with the Rangers, but they lost for nothing.So I don't think you even mar like have haven't even earned that extra voteanyways. So there's your there's. Your new way that we're going to do powerrankings. I love it because I like it too now when people want to come for mythroat they're coming for all of our threats, so so be it. It is not the wayit is right. I'll, be it. If I mind it's a powerful thing of course, as wementioned, not every team played their first game. Yet so there's a number. IE, you know I'll count the exact number. So I get this fact right right. There's,there's four teams in the EH LP playing their first game this upcoming week andthe EHEL. We have another four teams as well, including which we're going tostart doing this more and more and more the team who's Jersey. I have on gonna miss the edge this year to you,gonna miss our pedestal, but Callin case's, going to take that Torto, USand and a s. This is game. Warn...

...this is a more talk marks on there.It's got dude, it's got a whole. Oh, it's got holes in one mark o t thatthis one right through the door. Credit for that I'll give you credit rightthrough the door now now compared to the set of game orns. That Justin has.I got this one for the tremendous price of free, so we will tell you what Justin vices yeah.We won't tell you what Justin pays for his capten, but top to is. This is inAndrew Harley, Jersey, Andrew Harley was probably one of my favorite playersthroughout his time. In the week, if there ever was a most improved player,it was Andrew Arley who, whatever Freddy, asked him to, would playforward, or I d like just went back and forth, and his last year was tremendouson Oline, with Trivia Jeff, who was his forward line when he played for thatyear. Pan Zeka note that was a year prior shoot was the chance Gormanchance, Gorman Ans, forman and Brendon Darby. So for t for those that arealready saying to themselves. Jeez the associate commissioners weaning, awizard serse Jeff has a little fliers. T ship, I don't have. I don't have anyLO. I don't have any O. I don't have any little flyers. Ker Lauren doesn'thave any team here, yet coaches, please, you ha send us Laban, eighty seven tothat's actually not true. No, I do not neale false information. Oh you have toshe s here. Your comes the rookie of the Yes, but I do have one piece ofteam gear. Oh there's item to yes, yes, yes, she has a wall politess beanie,for when it gets on what a bit cold it. It is right now they were limited runto and there from my beautiful home state of Ermont. Actually Neil I do. Ido have one piece of equipment from the T. seven, or should I say hardware, Ohyou have a is that that's like the swag of allswags, with this name on an no sorry, you, an Ruso, Christopher Ruso, as menas well. We saw that his media. It was funny because Chris and I went to aYankee game earlier this summer and he told me that Adam had as for hisring side- and I thought to myself- wait a minute you. I never asked me formy ring side, so I thought I was going to get left out, even though I've beenwith the team four years now going on five, but I ended up getting the ringanyway, so it all worked out. That's excellent! That's good, and maybe whenthis season is all a sudden done, the e crew will find some money between thefour of us to purchase our own fantasy ring for whoever wins. That would be.That would be electric that be at em in for that we do stuff tonight, guy we so first day Pasach, but we have to getto fantasy, because what a great start there was it's time for the e groupfantasy challenge and the ECRANS challenge is presented by biotite sport.Drink of the UL use. The PAL code e show that s how for twenty five percentoff when we check out at Listo, I played fantasy for the first time andI'm in first place, but but by the Lord I now now you hadto pick last this week. So, let's see how you do ation picking last so tobreak down what took place in fantasy plus. Sorry, I'm sorry. I said to you guys. Isaid it on this podcast. Are we concerned at all that the rough ridershave three non Ho Goaltenders, just pointing that out there? I did say thaton the record last week, Ye because opening weekend wasn't great so longseas. It though right yeah, but but just pointing it out. Thank God. So, asI mentioned, Lauren is in the first place, but saw like, despite the factthat her goal tender did give up nine goals like still in first place.Despite that, like that that mind blowing right, that is, I should havebeen mats of negative points like that. You guys were trying to give me crabfor getting a little bit of help, trying to pick my players but y'almosteat some help, because clearly my help worked because I did come out in first,so you I need some help to you picked my guy. You pick he co spentlike, of course it happens when you last, you got a scramble to findsomeone you want. You can smit a quiet week for him right, Jo girl, hey a girl,hey yes, quiet week for Egan Schmidt with a pair of toots, a pair of goals,apparatus. One power play point. Eleven points total right. symetry, though, byor an it is pretty cool to be at a game when your fantasy player does somethingright, so that was so fun, although that that game, I do have wonderedabout. When I went to that game. I overheard D that ten Dempsey's parentsactually were there, because I was...

...trying to I came in. I was like kind offigure out where to go, and I remember I was taxing and I was like how do Iget to the seating like I've never been here, and I overheard some lady say: OhI'm Tomas Dempsey's mom, so shout out to demos parents. If I see you at oneof the showcases I'll, definitely say hi this time, but I was like tooconcerned with trying to figure out where I was just sitting, so it was. Itwas fun to know that they were there and it's cool to see that the parentsdo come out to see their kids play and it was cool to honestly see, games andget out to a couple arenas and to see one of my fantasy picks to a goal inthe gold that like kicked off the scoring that game was pretty solid andI mean all was t, give em a little shout out to because, like yeah, theirteam took a loss but like he had a pretty solid game, just like that, yeahyeah, a so get ready, they'll be talking to you right, Lotte Up to youemeriarde his dad both followed me on twitterers excellent. So a goal andthree assists including one power play point for Dem S. for ten points, Total de manyeah do to go a wind championships. Man Did you know. Have you never heard thatsaying? Oh, we just a all the offense that he put up a defense on which a ship and then finally, through two goals andassistant, to powerplay points for Bella, so to have Egan Spill witheleven Thomas Dempsey with ten an Callin Bella with ten like imagine ifit was a better performance in goal right like it's just a war, it stillgot point four. It wasn't a point four because he had forty seven, I so it'sso it's a thirty one point four week performance for Laurence, so she goesfrom picking first last week to picking last this week because she's in thefirst place funny how the order just shifted right to anthony because hepicked second last week and he picked second the last this week because hehad a pretty salad week as well and honestly, I thought Bobby Guyer wouldhave delivered a little bit more for Anthony, especially in that roughFriday series. The Maryland, put up twenty goals in the three games: Yeahand and he's their top score right, yeah. Well now the one player who has actually emerged asone of the top scores for team Maryland, if I'm not mistaking the top scoreright now, Nick Graziano, the son of renegades, coach, cliff, Karazan andnick leads the franchising goals, assist points, gains played and penaltyminutes he's a big Pin sky. Does he does it all Lihan on? I wastalking to cliff before the seven P game against the running gates, and Iwas talking to cliff about it about his own racking up points in Maryland, andhe said that for nick going into his age out season, it sort of clicked forhim where he knew that he only has one year of junior eligibility left. So Ithink he took it to another level, this all season, just in terms of training,really looking to improve his game, because he had some struggles of itlast season with tea Merilyn. But now he's really hit his stride with theteam and and cliff probably pointed out to you that he better be the star ofthe week when he sam and then pointed out to me that one of us better pick mea fantasy and we didn't yet we will sit there. I think we like one game nextweek. A look. I want to pick some warriors. I wanted to pick so Maryland,but Taheia the stat change for him, a four goal. Forest is opening weekend.It's pretty phenomenal and, as cliff pointed out to me, I have to eat mywords a little bit that we did not include nick and the HLP the Eh alltime Latu, because he made a pretty emphatic statement in that openingweekend. But, as I mentioned, that was just Bobby Guyer for for Anthony, hadfive points for him: five for an Aaron Dameron as well, three for Anthony toVerus and then twelve point six for Ronan Mobile, of course had that shutout against the spartans. It's all led to twenty four point, six points intotal for Anthony, so you got LARN at thirty. One Point Four Anthony attwenty four point: six we did switch Tanical Ly Jepan, I if we were tryingto keep the cemetery going, you should have finally finished third Jeff, but Ifinished third with twenty three kind of frustrating, like I'm reallykind of frustrated like I'm a huge fan of Richards, Ze, Lenskys and MichaelO'Brian, I think both of them could end up on our Hll Star team against thecolleges. But so, but you know you when you give me to goose, I don't know whatto say like it's really discouraging it's really disappointing. I don't haveany words. I watched those two guys lighted up last year because they werein my state right there in my state of the answer. I saw them all the time anda couple gossecs, it's pretty...

...demoralizing honestly, so tell fineI'll be back well. Finally, back I'll get that sweater on for an episode toYeah. I coach triple was kind of up to Semerang John Werber, with a pair of winds inthat series for the Maryland for team Maryland against the rough riders.Eighty five CAS overall really did actually play. Well, in a forty fivesay, performance against the T, seven yesterday and then five points of myown from Tyler eveling as the ducks with their opening weekend series withthe apple course. So I'll take my twenty three points and run because tome for you to me twenty three points with two goose sakes: that's prettydamn good, that's very good, you're still right to think of it. I thank younow get to my dumpster fire of a week. So we talk about goose eggs. So, let'sstart by saying Sawyer worse thing is from Maine, so we got that out thereI'm from for me thanks for so yes we're getting suped yeah, I hate yeah. It wastough played in one game, then playing another, no points. Higgins. Had I meanif we counted it, hits and like put a bonus on big heads like it would. A bigis a big dinner would have an awesome week after you, Jeff really would havebeen, but your your to o stags were a little bit tough there, drunk andactually Nick Dunkin for the rough riders actually probably had the beststart of the three gold tenders that played in net for Connecticut. Ah, I goto the Nora, I know that's easy to say when he gave up three compared to nineand at the other two days, captain obvious over here at whatever that nota commercial captain Ouvil, we always point out the funny stuff. Like I laughevery time. I also find hotels that come. Thank you. Someone just said that.Thank you, Justin was A. I was it I find like dumb humor funny like I justlaugh at those every time like so I retook like my favorite commercial ofall time is Duncan the Walrus with Gay Co. Do you ember that one nwe they putthe Wales in in net and the opposing team can't score an and like the guylike shoots it off like a pad? It's like sitting in front of the Walrus andhe's like it's a Warres. What am I supposed to do? I think it's so funnylike I laugh every time now is like that. I've probably watched a thousandtimes but dunk in the wars is excellent that mind for maybe future fantasy, andso maybe we can draft in then I'll, take dunk in the walls for five hundredAlex. thank you hocus back, say, though a solid weekendfor him, with eight pasty points for Jeff and Jeff, we've seen in fantasyyou've seen in fantasy, yes, you're, an eleven point eight, so you are infourth place, not last place. Fourth place last fantasy can turn quickly, as rickybobby want said. If you ain't first, you last. Yes, you are yes, you arefantasy, though, can turn quickly. We know that right I can and and we'regoing to see if there's a difference between picking first and pick themlast so jeff by finishing and fourth not last, I'm sorry again, let's get to your picks for thisupcoming week. Let's get to them, so we're trying to you know change thetime. Shall we say so only way to go only where to go fromhere s up so with, for we were going to go with a former pelf. Yes, I have mylittle flyers sheered on what up Anthony La Russo, a Kalo, but he is nowin Anthony Apollo land with the ty sevens. Mr Robbie SI wagon he was awagon last year and Robbie come on buddy. What do you have two games nextweek? I need Patrick points. I need you to do everything anything please please,please and I'll maybe buy one of your Jersey can. I just can, I just say areal funny story: Real Quick if ABC Waggin Yeah. So I remember listening tothe podcast last year and you guys were saying that team is not just a wagon there cy.So next, so the next day it was eighty seven little flowers game and I was onthe cat walk at Jersey, shore, Arina, looking down at the players gettingready, and I was asking Robbie. How is it feel to have a sling torment in yourname, Sick, o? The team is a sea wading, so he was joking. It felt pretty goodand it's a fashion, Roman Eki said well. Why won't? They call a team to see thisif they're doing real? Well, I look at my spotting chart and I go well.Sabasian you'd have to get your first point. The season. First, O er,everyone Oline, were saying that he got roasted by the natalt. I've talked to aRoman Iki a couple times he's such a great kid. The flyers head coach MarkCapture on likes in two and in the game against the eighty seven. He looks likea really good defender, but I mean he took it all his strike and that was the players loved it. It was great. Isay this, the Larn all the time because you just joined us. You got to be ableto give it and take it in this week, if you're a player, if you're a coach N,if you're a League of thistle, you got...

T, be able to give it taken tobroadcaster if your broader broadcast or podcaster play by plane doesn'tmatter. Take it damn. That's a good story, though so I robby sewage. Ithink he has a goal or two so far. He had one to two goals to is to nowbecause he got the empty netter against the little flyers where he chipped itoff the glass. He told me after the game that when he chipped it off theglass, he was thinking in his head, a holy's going to be so mad at me becauseI iced the PAL, but it took a hard left turn in the offensive zone and wentinto the empty net, and then he scored yesterday against team Maryland on thepower place. That was pretty good geometry, who, yes, US the onsite property at all, comesfull circle in this podcast, but Jeff you've got the year forward sofar, now you're de my d. actually this is perfect. Thank you Anthony. I don'tknow if you knew this well. Actually you probably knew because we saw thatall in the group text earlier, but that's Roman Nicky's. My des Week, youdidn't get a point last year right. Twenty nine games, no points, but he'sbeen in the flyers organization. For one two, three four: this is fit seasonnow: okay, toot, the hlp yeah. Twenty seven points, the hlp one thousand ninehundred and twenty six cools twenty one, a six. So let's go so Basta Roman Nickytime you to get on the board. Early Sea Bass make sure you put anthony to sleep.Okay, let's get a point and you can then you'll be happy and there won't beany fights at the Anthony in the in the stands. But moving on to s that'sforward D goal tender. Chris Jackson, I mean he has plenis playing ESS scaredto living couperosee out of me earlier it to me that mate billers coming backbut a Miller, take your time. Buddy ye Chris Jackson. Next week, apell theyonly have to yeah. Take the very take the scenic Crout NA. You know whatbrake is but go see. It's fall, go see the foliage. Will you so we get ChrisJackson and then for my utility Louis Joseph Gernon, who I think is leadingour league and point. So he has picked up the hat trick yesterday. Keep itsimple he did pit was that yeah? That's right picked up atris against against adeath, a will go quiet next week, but that third goal was gross. He you wantcoster coast backhand bar down. That was just unbelievable, tied up the game.Only for the junior warriors to get another goal of twenty seconds left. Wehad, we had to at least mention it that was seriously a wild finish. Seven, sixlittle baseball scores, Menie ously or you could say touchdown with the extrapoint and then touch that with the miss extra point, ole field goals or want toreally stick over the alten, so jut it Foks, that's yeah! I mean next week,you'll come on this podcast and either call your team, a sea wagon or a se,bass, yeah or B stay tone folks. So Ninety one so jeffpicked first with bent. I got the chance to pick second part of thereason why I'm also wearing this Wizards Jersey is because of theirforward. Will Jennings who's back for a second year with the with es I'mplaying playing on their top line and their top power play consulted withCoryphaei, because I was kind of torn Ryan Webb or will jennings and cory hehe put his word on it that Jennings will be scoring the goals and web ll beassisting them. So I'm going for that little extra tis. You can't slide me upan help. You just said you talk, you guys have inside information, you can'tbe played me, get out, listen, listen, Lor and let me get to the show case andyou're going to be working on social media stuff. I'm going to have toremind you, while you're at the showcase to stop spending timeconsulting the coaches, about fantasy advice, because they're going to dothat, the entire time hey they bring up I'll chat with them. I'M NOT gonna. Iwon't be going to do it if they want to talk I'll talk I'll, take any O get. Weall will. Yes, yes, we all will. We didn't have show Kis last year, sothat's going to help us with fantasies to getting to see every coach and talkto every team and coach yeah. It's definitely doing my homework to we allwill they can finally stop calling. I can see them in person. A they'll stillcall you from one end of the rake. No you a blue ring red brick come on. Ibreak that can't see you. Where are you? Are you here? No, no. I actually skipped this show case tookit off I in a way. What are you doing o the season start so well Jennings, thatforward? They actually have three games this week. They play the chiefs todaythey play the warriors tomorrow. That's Callin, Casey's first call and thenthey play the avalanche on Sunday. So three games trying to you know, findsome lightening there with those points. The next one's interesting, because Iknow there's going to be heat coming from Terry Watt, it's not a shot at him.Had Watson was probably one of the best defense been on the ducks last year,he's playing on the t seven this year. I always whether it's it's not just eh,whether it's all sports, I always love when a player goes back to face aformer team, I'm not that there's any animosity there between Aden and Terryand a former team by you always just see different performances. So onSaturday night, if we want to get a...

...quick defence been had trick. Hadenlike you know, I won't be disappointed by that. I'm going to be disappointedby that either. Well, it's got to be interesting, Anthony Right, becauseyou're going to be going a game, we're going to get to your fantasy to picknext. Are you going to have a different reaction if a jeff mills or Neo Raven,eighty seven fantasy player scores rather than your eighty seven fantasyplayer, so abs? Absolutely not because when I put when I put on the headset,then I'm not anthony the EH L beat writer, I'm Anthony The eighty sevenbroadcaster Parpa said it. I said Ardith game with the team because theyscored a couple of ugly goals where they don't ask how they just ask howmany same thing as eve ate well but I'll be listening again. Yougot my word for that. So last last season it was actually the other wayaround when Matt sales went from protect to the t seven and he got shotout against the T. seven so you're, absolutely right where there'ssomething going on when a player goes up against their former team, wherethey just take it to another level. Yeah I mean that's. Hals wasunbelievable down the stretch for Prote I mean this is this is a podcast aboutthe EH and junior hockey, but Tom Brady on October thirty, a great it anywaysmoving on after after the showcase will be a wall together, the home and cry,and it's going to be so funny. We go at the end of the show case and Lawrencein to be like Neil. You always tell me that you have to kind of like workuntil the last game ends and be. Like you know, Tom Tom Starts in four hours,or so I got my dad. Oh God, I had the bus that one episode is the shirt that JustinGomes doing next week right before the show case to Brady is my dad. Tom Readyis already is my daddy yeah so but anyways to get to my goal. TenderLauren put in this like extraordinary effort last week to make sure that shepronounced Daniel Newara. It's his name right, yeah, that's what it is sleep Iput in no effort to make sure that I've pronounced Justin. How do I pronounce his lastname just to make sure I don't get it right or get it wrong? It is Jacob all Ol Jacob Ahl, okay show Acota is all it is. Okay, that's youcan be Ahl Jacob for the year he is. I would imagine, as the only ago on thewalpoles roster he's, probably starting at least in their opener against thesea locks on Friday. I guess we'll find out. I did not ask Jos Holms from aboutthat. I think he got enough to worry about and getting his team ready andtaking over for cody so didn't want to put pressure on him and say: Hey. Youknow I kind of have a fantasy pick here so, but we'll get to that after thisweek and then at utility. You know I get the pick second, so I get my guyback Egan Smit, so we're going to do that if he can wants to like send mehis orse also I'll, definitely wear that next week or the week afterbecause next week I'm erring the Tom Bras eased me for my team win firstweek first week of my rookie season and I win, and he helps, I guess we'll taghim in this- we'll see what he does, but that's my that's my team and andnext up will be atoning yep so before the first game against thelittle flyers. Naturally, I had some eighty seven players coming up to measking me: Why didn't I pick any of them ay out of pass yeah. So I told him thereal reason wanted to give other teams, some love being the ehle writer now,but I was joking with them too. Well, Hey, you know. If you guys want toprove it then go right ahead, oh and I'll get to that in the day. Theforward I have is, I heard I've heard two pronunciations Julian boss, clar orBoyceau like when I like that I've taken a couple years of French likehigh school and college and like when I look saw that name. I was try topronounce a more French in said Bacler and, like maybe the s was silentbecause of the way it's written but hey there. So you was. Are you W startedlast week? I think we're going to get this pronunciation go go it's a smartidea! When you ask the coaches, they don't even know have to the G S. no Juknow what you know. What Jefferson you might know, this, the coaches alwayssay they know how to pronounce the news and I'm not singling any coach out.This is every coach. Even in the knoll. They say that they know, but then youask the players and they give you a completely tole defecation agreed. Sothis you again nothing to any specific coach, but that's not their job. It'sour job to get it right and that's why I like to talk to the players about itand Lauren to address your point. We had a player in the eighty seven fromerteam named Griffin, do blois. It also...

...had that Lys in there. So a lot ofannouncers said de Blas, but when I asked him it was actually Dubois andthe s was not silent, so it depends on the area, sometimes where they're fromYep but boss Clar is my forward. He had twotwo goals in his first. Two Games also scored the first overtime warning gold,this season against the sea coast portons. So He's my pick for forwardfor defense, Dominic Metro. I love the way. This kid plays four points withthe goal and three assists in his first three games and he picked up in hissist in that wild seven six game where he took a shot from the point hadtraffic in front God of power play goal. It looks like he skates. Well, he canmove the pock well, he shoots well, and I think it's a big reason why thejunior warriors are such a are off to such a great startand my goal tender is Jackson Bernard. He has a one and one record, two nforty eight goals against average nine tety, seven se percentage. We can methirty. Nine saves against the protect tune, ducks okay, opening night thatcould already and having seen Bernard play againstthe T. Seven. I know that he's a terrific goal tender so that was kindof a no bringer for me and now my first eighty seven pick of the fantasychallenge. It only took me up until the second week de Devil in o King. He scored two goalsin that home opener against the little flyers. He can really rip the Puck andI was looking at him pulls, but the goals that he scored reminded me a lotof Nick Swain from last season, Yeh, where he can just come off the rightside and he just rips it stick side off the post in in and I think he's goingto be a very effective player for the T. seven he's going to be a differencemaker when you said Metro, you could have setcalled the you could have called them. The newly dubbed number four rankedwarriors too. We did that on this episode, so he did score the variousEarth Gull of the season right in the EH. Yes, I remember that sweet from yous, so you tore the very first school, so solid team, and now we get to thefirst place team yeah one. I did I really rookie of the. U. I did no doubtIping this time. I have four players from four different teams, but I did toone from a team I used last to last week, but I decided for my forward. I would pickout our third, like top play of the week with Brent Hanley from the ValeGunari I go was pretty nasty and I looked up his numbers. He looks prettysolid, so I was like you he'd, be a good choice for me to have it forwardand for defence. Shout up to you a lot for this. One give me a little bit oftips here and there I picked my chain green from the Philadelphia littleflyers. I've heard he's pretty good and he's supposed to be getting some timeon the power play, possibly so that that's always fun and for a goal.That's one that I seem to be struggling with a little bit. It's Finny, becauseI got to check out who's who and see who's going to be playing, becausethat's always interesting, and this week I went with Mr Pad Alto from theEast Coast. Wizard Idonia. I took a Er for you and his is a s, a n D D, Six,six save percentage so far, so I thought that was pretty solid. Sohopefully, he'll give me some good points this week and for my utility,this one's kind of fun, and I chose Jackson Collins from the Vermont LumberJacks and this one that was kind of funny for me because I have a friend Iwon't sow a Weeke plays in because I'm not kind of wrote them, but my friendback home, Mr Jackson, versa, he's a goal, lay for a team down south. Hetold me when I told him that I got the shop he was like. Oh, you should lookup with my buddies. He plays for Vermont and I was like that's my hometime team. What are you talking about and he was like? Oh yeah, my buddyshacks and Collins he's like he plays up there and I was like a gonna keep aneye at him, and I was like Oh rot is a couple games this week, so maybe I'llpick another one of them and I checked his points. He's got to go on. This isso far into game. So I was like that's that's pretty solid. I was like wellwe'll see what you can do for me this week. They got like, I think, two orthree more games this week. So hopefully you can put up some goodpoints for me, so shout it out to my friend Jonava for that one at you doing recon like. I don'tbelieve it's amazing right. So that's going to be interesting here, becauseshe to the order that we ewers the order that we finished in this weekdetermines the order that we pick in next week, which is right before theshow case, which is a busy one. I was gonna say Ye. This is going to be ourfirst. I was going to ask you about this earlier it our first fantasy withshowcases, because we started in two thousand and nineteen and January.Aren't we done with showcases when we started this podcast wow? That's an excellent point, O wowthought about this word. We have never had a shivers when fantasy was takingplace ever because we last year, for you, Forgot Wow, absolutely pretty surewe started a after Exeter in two...

...thousand and nineteen. We definitelylike. We started the podcast when we do not set our fantasy till after theshooks yeah wow, so this is gonna be really fun because I was like that now,as on everybody, we're going to pay is, and we're going to be like right thereand they're going to try to let us down or pick US UP WE'RE gonna be so out byso many parents. This is trying to be looking each other across the rightshout out to Mr Dameron. He was very happy when I picked Aaron in the firstweek. I hope he's lose I up yeah. So last week in Faste, there weresixteen games this week of fantasy. There's seventeen games after that,though, like the showcase we have Suas, just in the show case for the EH L thatare. This is quickmatch fourteen twentyhundred twenty seven games and then there's there is one game onthe fifth, so there is some team. There are two teams that turn around rightafterwards. So twenty a D twenty eight game weeks is awaiting us, so is we didthe twelve six two for this is. This is where it gets interesting right becauseit's kind of like that whole costume of sometimes like in football. Whoever hasthe the ball last. They win the game. Whoever gets the pick first like werereally. I know that you don't feel this way, Jeff because you're at elevenpoint, eight points, but we're really. On top of each other still and andfantasy. You try, yeah pense can swing pretty quickly, though it can. I wittypretty quickly, though, and and there's plenty of good games this week. Thatcould be that could determine that for us right. So, let's get to what to washfor before. We wrap things up, here's what you watch for this week and thatyou show what to watch force presented by hockey TV, the official streamingplatform for your hl and HLP action to the two thousand and twenty one, twothousand and twenty two season. Do you want to eat, get a game to watch. You can pick the same. We could makethe same game. Well, I have to okay, I'm going to default to the four teamswho have yet to play a game in the HL. Ye have the East Coast Wizards andcommunicate chiefs on Today at twelve thirty pm yea, and you have tomorrow ata hundred and thirty PM, the Wafil express the Sea Hawks Hockey Clubtomorrow at a hundred and thirty PM, and I want to see what these teams,what they've got so it's exciting to see them all, played their first gamesof the season, little overdue, I guess, but Kay again, just getting to see themin action. I think that's that's two games to really watch out for for me a can. The newly dubbed NumberFour Rank Valley, junior warriners, get to for an o against the wizards onFriday. That's going to be too big because they have never started for nowand and those two teams have kind of like a friendly rivalry in a way because theyalways every year play each other and preses kind of like the Rangers in Avalanche will call itfriendly, but behind closed doors is not friendly. Right like that, is thatfair, Yeah Richer Chris love each other, but they hate each other. So I'm goingto I'm going to keep a close line on that warrior's wizards game, good call,little fires because you ran little fire shirt. Yeah go go pof an X X, plff!Well, I guess we got to go with. Aren't they sevens they're, not playingphilophei flyers is no no. By the, as you could have seen the sea wagonsreturned. I can fuck you to left, but yeah there's a lot of good games. Ilike to express seahawk is like we said, I mean Josh. Holmstrom he's got an lbackground, an everyone touted cody and cody toute Josh a lot last year. When Idid a lot of express games, he speaks highly of him. Josh knows what he'sdoing and we'll get to see where it's at you know, and I heard that thisJacob all kids very good, just as saying earlier code's a former goldtender former division, one Niagara goal tender, so he knows how to pickthem so we'll see if they have another Mason Palmer in that or good old. EricBuckles your favorite from fantasy last year, well, yeah Walpole will see whatthey what they got because I mean they were team last year that we thought wasreally going to go to the frozen finals and they felt just short, and I thinkthat's a good pick as far as a team that we haven't seen play yet and seewhat they have. But I, like your pick, Tonia with bally, I mean Ryan's, gotthings going up and have roll and then got a four and out that's a that's, theheck of a street and Laurence game us to watch her pretty well known. It'spretty obvious to me: Oh Act, I don't knits, I'm going to say actually that Iwas as more of like a personal excitement, be stop some of my fantasyplayers, but I'm excited to see the flyers take on the apple core I heardfrom Ali when I was when I was talking to me about so guys. Maybe take a lookat from his team. I do I pick Shane Green and he goes oh he's, like prettysure you scored his firt school the...

...year at Apple core last year. Sohopefully that brings a little bit of luck and he can bring some of that intothe game against them this year. So definitely one that I have written downin my calendar to look at for sure wonder if these debates with SebastianRoman dicky bar the B, that would be pretty, we could do a little woman nickup to green, damn it well. They I've been told he is with God. What is hisname? I looked at him as arnold he's deep hair, O er er, O yeah. I let go here's where it gets interestingas if they do score it's against Anthony's, goalie and Jackson Bernard,so we're also on a cross. Over now, I thought that you were going tojust quickly say lumber Jackson, spartans, because this is the firstchance to see your hometown team, but we obviously know you're going to thosegames this week until I'm going to try to go to one of them. I think I havesome stuff going on the one day and I'm definitely trying to make it out to atleast one of them. I, since there's I'll, have to see, because I would loveto get out to lettis. Instead of is my hometown. I love to check out a gamethere for once, but definitely if I can get to see them out close to me rightnow, that'll be really awesome. Driving from where you lived at Exeter,compared to where you live to letty is, is significantly different. Oh Yeahthro big deal the Leon. I will say this, though, because I didn't give you thisreminder before the first time you went to exter, the rank is cold, so yeah.That was ridiculous, and I was like oh I'll sit in here and no like kind of belike near my boss, but I was like I instantly regretted that decision,because there was literally one of the big fans on the ceiling just aimedstraight near where I was sitting. I was like this brutal. Normally, I wouldhave been dressed totally fine, but I was like this fan is blowing straighton me. This whole time I was a possible to say the least. It ll hold Exeter Besthing about hockey in late summer, early fall where it's justso hot outside, and then you go inside the rink and it's just super cool justyet the change in temperature is insane yea an you can't the trust the ABS ringwas like perfect. It was. It was cold enough to a wetter, but like it'scomfortable enough that you're not a potic, so I will commend them to thatfor sure. But yet it's called the Iden who would have thought that an Edeconfor everyone when we get to Worcester Wester is cold. Okay, yea they caneveryone aware of that. We're get that up there now that war is other, but asI mentioned a lot of games on the on tap in both leagues this week, a lot ofteams getting there, twenty one, twenty two seasons started so cold. Look toall those teams that are beginning their new campaigns for next week. Justso, everyone can make this note at home. We don't often do this, but the podcastis actually dropping on Wednesday, not Thursday next week, because onWednesday it's the twenty, nine and Thursday is the thirtieth and obvious.But the thirty is the day of the show case starts. We do have one EH LP gameon lone the twenty nine, but obviously no EHEL Games makes a lot more sense todrop it on wet on Wednesday. Twenty nine then Thursday, the thirties, sothat every player they want to can can turn on the PODCAST, while they'redriving up in the bus on Thursday so ma a no gonna traveling up to Worcesterthat day. So that's me one time perfect, perfect to turn on in the car. So takethat note were dropping this on Wednesday next week and I'll talk toyou guys, then so he's good seething Fu thanks for listening to the USHOW,learn more at Eastern Hockey League Dot Org and follow us on Facebook, twitter,instagram and Youtube also be sure to subscribe and get notified.
