I would record at seven am every weekjust saying just throwing that out there. If we wanted to do it, I woulddo this every week. Yeah, that's not bad of recordings. Nine! Ten, not toobad, still be sleeping right. Now, I'm still Bo moving. I mean truthfully,though. If anyone has to complain or can complain, it should be any right,preshake shift. I was Blueberg Anthony, oh my goodness, so that well well. Well,first off it started with the sevens rough riders game, yeah. Twenty then Ihad to go to work. The worst part was so my shift started at nine P M, but Ihad to go there at six because I had to get a Kobe test, or else I couldn'thave started my shift. So I actually an I had to go into the city three hoursearly, but you know what I'm still running on fumes, I'm ready to go.Let's do this, do it I wish not replaiting bunches. I almost wanted tosay good morning campers to you when I go on the PODCAST, because I used towork for a day camp like all through high school through college, and I loon like a decade ago. Yes, a few time hops at I used to, I was on the stageevery morning. You could all imagine this right where I had to help sing arepeat after me, song before we got the day started, so I almost was like thisis literally day Jahou it's good morning, campers, but we're not goingto send that repeat me son, so I missoula rate get up get you know, Iknow, and a neil one of my favorite cartoons is Camp Lazo, where it tookplace in a in a sleep away. Can we do get me some scout lump is vine, so ocats they ever watched in a picture. If I compare well with that, let's get tothe weekly run down it's time for the key crews weekly run down, the weeklyrun down is brought to you by the junior hockey podcast your home forjunior hockey, news knowledge and nonsense, check them out of TJ podcastcom. What a second week, it was, oh, my Godlike busy and although same amount of games are similar amount of games to wee. But it's not like way. More did just one more game, but when did we firstintroduce the power inkings? We may have to call on Justin for this one. Ithink I think I started doing in the beginning of the seventeen eighteen season. Yeah he snineteen, where years ago it was at least like two years before fantasystarted the whenever it was for the first time in the history ofthe power kings. All five teams lost the game. In the same week, like I like last year, we had the curseof number five M, so Laura I e number...

...five. Every time we play a team ofnumber five. I lost like every time like it was like what happened of herat least ten times like it was. It was really weird all five teams. So now it's not it's acurse of one through five down all five teams like Rangers lost, Eighty sevenlost avalanche lost warriors boss, Lubber Jacks got swept like what like what so early that I think for the majorityof this speaks quickly run down. We have to kind of reset things herebecause there's a lot that we could choose from and I think what what helpsa team like the rangers is that everybody lost and they did win a gameafter they lost their first game, so they lost on Thursday to the railers bythe score four to one, but then bounced back with a seven to one victory onSaturday. I personally think that no one did enough behind them to jump that.I don't know how you guys feel. I know wedo have some undefeated teams left there, but they still bounce back withthe wind. So I think we still have to leave them number one going into theshowcase thoughts. I'm fine with that will have to pullthe rest of our crew, but yeah it's a seven one win. I gets to sea hawks theseok going to be a good team, the Owayne who won their first game theyshot out the express on their first Ye. So were my boat is yes neil and Iwanted to make sure I read some tweets here from the week because I thinkthere was a lot that a lot of interesting things set on twitter. Youknow what I'm talking about Anthony will get to that big one, but for thefor the seahawks they win their first game on Friday, one nothing and then,as Jeff points out, got kind of space in the second game, seven O one. Idon't think it helped that the rangers were pissed off going into that game.No, I think, I think that you kind of just say like why did that have tohappen to us, but in bills anadoli treat for theseahawks after they came on Saturday. Eh L team learns a lesson today gettingbeat seven to one. He pointed out how they have a very young team and youcan't get too high off of one victory right. Yes, you shut out Walpole likegreat. That's the only the first game of the season. There are a lot of goodteams in this league and if you don't show up, I'm pretty sure they gave upthree goals like Bang Fang Bank and that came against the Rangers and itwas it was over quickly. So you know what's crazy about the ranges to is nowthey get back Nathan Muller and it's just a two headed monster between ChrisJackson, the Napo Mule. It's not fair, not fair. I was just about to say, andI wonder what riches record is: that's a good point meal. What is richesrecord coming off of losses because he is someone no coach takes losing well,but rich, like especially, does not take losing well yeah, so I feel, likehe's kind of bill bill check in and the fact that hegoes for the absolute blood after a loss as sorry, coach, Santa Bony SantaBeauty, as we call him that was you the other day. My friend and who we shallwe tell two quick stories- sure okay, swords? Well, yes, because your eyou're speaking of losses right. So I don't know what year was, but there wasa year that the wolves and Rangers played a home and home and the Rangersbeat the wolves like fourteen to water. Fourteen to two at home and thefollowing day. What do you think happen because, whatever whatever a teamscores so much that the next layer, they're playing also you're like? Maybethey should save something? I yes should a? Of course they lost up in thecodi and rich broke a door on the bench like this broke the door. I was like you can't do that like and then, when they and then when theywon against the chiefs two years ago. It wasn't good enough and he snappedhis clipboard and then shook Neil Breen's hand ever that ye you're doingit was okay.

It was Riano the call, and he was likenot sure why head coach, ristocrat so upset, but the clipboard is definitelydone good time, so we're going to keep themat one and then get to a Antothites, because this is the tweet maybe of theyear. Did you see it Anthony? I did. I did.Is there a lot of talk about this in the y? Seven locker right now? No,because the protect o the protect June ducks have only won two games and, liketen tries, so ah I think the watch this turn it up.Terry Watts team is got a lot of catching up to do so, we're not too concerned, but it issomething that we're going to storm the memory bank, so I think think you canwatch out o Lettin board material anten. Yes, so, let's get to the boat to morematerial because obviously have Saturday night the ducks beat the T.seven two o one kind of a weird game winner right like it was one of those wherethe play US comes up. The Wall and the kid just throws it towards the goal andit hits like just a perfect spot and goes it yeah. Idon't know if Jeremy Connor was ready for it and in his defense, connor hasbeen terrific, for the T. seven to save percentage is almost at nits goalsagainst average is under two, so he has been playing very well. That was the probably the the worst cool he's givenup the seat in the season, but also before I start trash talking the duckstoo much. I do want to point out that no, I do want to point out that Tristanfate that has been playing very well for protect- oh great hely, only an othree yep that that's nuts and there were a lot of great a chances atthe eighty. Seven had that Gameand. It went right down to the wire where inLindburg hit the post with two seconds left on the clock. That was just if you're, an eighty seven fan playerstaff member. It was heart breaking to see like yeah. They were able to bounceback and get the one against Connecticut, but the ducks respondedwith their game. Wanning graphic that said, Hash Tag, our time Hash tag theducks way. I think I still mad at the I thinkthey're still mad at the time I wrote them last season where they're breakingabout their Hash Tag, and then I was the one who sent the tweet where I said:okay, I guess we'll just settle for best record in se and yeah. I think thewashing that was I I rang. Nisatha was fun, butyou know you love you do you do love that banter between the two teams,where the protect junior doves give it right back in and it's fun it's funwhen you see that stuff, but you know just a fair warning the next time theducks play the t seven and if New Jersey wins then don't be surprised if we kind of Jaback Hashtag capital. Oh, you are now it'sour time right at that point, so lauren when you get to the SIRCAS and you meetTerry Watt, you're going to have to interview them about the Tweet, justput them right on the spot, but hey it is a big one for them.Tristan faded had forty three says was named goalie of the week. Adam holy didpoint out to me that on at least five occasions last year the goalie the weekaward came from from performances against him. I don't do that. I just don't think aboutyou. What I at the sevens have always been a very strong team offensively,...

...but that was they were the only loserthis week right, so the Rangers lost the game. The at Sevens lost the game, each team bounced back with a wind, soI think that's why they hold pat, where they're at one in the one in two slots.The avalanche already have two losses: the first game I called this year whenthey beat the Spartan seven, nothing. You know that little small voice-that's just so unrealistic at the back of my mind, was like undefeated andthey are definitely not undefeated at this point. Is this team good or theyare they just going through a funk because they scored more goals in thatfirst game and they scorn the rest of their games combined since then, Oh team figure it out. I mean anotherteam that lost a lot of guys to so I guess a younger team. As we said, with picking fantasy the first week we tooka couple of ABS defensemen, but they've scored ten goals that giveup six so that plus minus is kind of close to your score, just as much asyou're givin up so ye Chriss, I guess figuring out now he goes into it silent,just like something it takes a bit. Yes, it is in and, like I think in talkabout the showcases, I think everyone's a little bit like focused on that morethan they should be. Maybe because, like you guys mentioned, Oh like theydidn't have any last year because of Covic, so everyone's like super sitedto get that back, so they all have that wring down there like. We need to begood for that. I was like well, you be good for the regular se, something likeyou got to have that balance there. You can't just like, Oh God, be good forthe show fatefully you've got. You want to have a good record over all to yeah and I echoin to NEL member WappleExpress O. U for last year, it's the playoffs, Oh and all four and one lastyear for one, so they they were Williston their first five games andjust in pointed out that his wind fo graphic was getting a little dustybecause he wasn't able to post anything, but it s a. It is a good point, becauseI didn't even realize this. The last showcase we had do you know where ittook the sea coast. Well, that was the last hl show case,I'm just saying the last showcase in as a whole, where it took place Exeter right. Well, he just saidbecause she goes is a when Ho from the holes at was the lasteh l show case. That was the hall that was the weekend before the holidayweekend in January of two thousand and twenty the weekend after that was inWorcester wister o. The last show case we had was eh LP and Worcester, and thefirst one back is a joint this time. This is the first time I've ever hosted.Eh L Games there, just so an everyone. Listening knows at home. There is amask mandate in the city of Worcester Dale. So if you're not inside the glass,you have to have a mask on. If you're you know closed rum to you're okay, soI was told specifically that that the bathroom does not count as a close from the office is in the lock rooms. Butit's a lot of the rings in Massachusetts are started to do thatnow. I noticed it at the wizards this past week, which I have to have theJersey on again guys, because now it gets crazy. We touched on the y sevenand the Rangers who I think stay at one and two, because they were able tobalance off their losses with a win. I think three, four and five we're goingto have some fun here, because we mentioned the avalanche, I thinkthey're, probably out at four. Maybe this year's curse is the warriorsbecause hey we're undefeated, the e crew puts us in the power rakings andwe lose our first game right at the lumber jacks, who, I think. Yes, they had a lot of battles of thespartans last year, but they still had a spartans number by just a hair. Imean they were two very close games. I know you went yeah, I did. I wasreading the Saturday go to a Ashad that N N T was trying to get to see theLover Tact. At some point. I...

...want to get to the rink somehow, butwe'll see if that happens, but seeing them in exter was a fun time and it was.It was an exciting game. I think it is pretty tight for a little bit. It waskind of back forth, but it was interesting to see them all, but Ithink they both definitely put up some pretty good efforts, but parts came outon top of there and they deserved it. I think they like both yes wot go fight,but the spartans definitely pull the head and got that win his partins on that one of the shootout and then on Sunday, two to one. So you know, I think you kind of haveto wash out three four and five avalanche. Borious, lumber, Jacks and-and here are your options to fill in right, so wizards right who beat thechiefs warriors and Apalache last week right, you have the railers who beat the Rangers last week and thewolves, and you have teams like Maryland and the ducks right. The ducksare three and one with a win against the Y sevens, Maryland's four and onethere in first place. I don't know if they have their stamenvictory, though yet, but they are in first place right, like it's crazy. Arewe about to have a power rankings that doesn't have the first place sarvantsor the first place t Maryland? I controversy crime. This is w. This iswhere we have to. We have to cut of talk, though, because do you need thatstatement victory to go into the power I hes, because on the on the contraryto it you could say yes, Marilyn doesn't have that stamen victory, butthe the ducks have a loss to the apple for team Maryland. I don't know if it'sso much a statement win so much is: can they stay consistent because lastseason they also started the season for one ano where they had a hot. They had a hotstart and they didn't fall off, but they did simmer down a little bit. So Ithink for Josh. FOSCO squad it'll be big to see what they do in the showcase and in the first few games after that, because that will give us apretty good idea of whether or not team Maryland's for real. If they're goingto be a team that will stay on the upper half of that self division, which looks like a great division rightnow, right Marilyn is for one in the first placewith eight points, the eighty seven and ducks for each three and one with sixpoints and the little flyers are one two and one a three points: Should westeal Kyles Line from last year? Jeff the little fires are the worst lastwait for the best last place team I've ever seen- and I was like my hand, waskind of like what is he talking about, but I think they are right because lookat the s they've lost it lost by a goal. It lost by a goal to Maryland on Mondayyeah. But if we, if we have all these options right, if we have options ofSpartans, wizards railers Marylyn ducks pick pick three. What do we do? Why? I said I say Neil you take thisback, we'll see you later. It was great to a TUI have to have the Wizards Jersey on.I think that they had to go in. I think that there, their three and O is the best clear cut three. You know if thatmakes sense, because I the schedule I because of the e last year, playoffteams and be and beating the avalanche intheir rink to right, so the avalites are always tough to play up there. Iknow the railers one at the ranchers as well we'll get to that one next, but Ithink one is the Rangers two of the eighty seven three of the wizards, I'm fine with that. Okay, carry on tothe curse slot, for is for the crissop this year, Potentiallyi or bobby, or nowe go with the other three, no team,...

...because you know the railers areprobably pounding their chest right now and saying yes, the wizards beat theavalanche, but we be to defending champs yeah. I think the railers issomeone that I thought should definitely go in here, because we weresaying in the off season: podcast their team to look out for their ULP team,got to the frozen finals last year and you're, seeing it we'll get to fantasylater this week, but there's a lot of guys stacking up those box scores somedefensemen and forwards. They got colonic who's great. Last year wetalked about a lot step on Kolana can net that's a pretty strong tea deal. Idon't know they look pretty scary blue trade. That was what are your one ofyour bankes last year, so I an't become one again but Y. I would put them atfour and here's what's interesting, right: here's where how we're going toimmediately test our is this: The new curse spot. They have four games thisweek. So we do. Every team is guaranteed three games in the show caseand we can here's a separate interview.Lauren, Hey hay, see, hawks and railers. Why did you want to take one day offand then play another game right away? They both play on Tuesday right. So theshowcase is is Thursday through Sunday, the and then they decided to play againon Tuesday October fifth. So if the wit, the railers can get through. All ofthat in be seven and O H, maybe there no, maybe the new number one at thatpoint, but it sets up a great match up on Sunday, Sunday October. Third, tenam number three wizards versus number four railers, which is a rematch of last year's playoff series. That'sright! That was maybe seven six treigh. What was that final score? Remember? Wewere watching that T we're waiting for that to end to record the podcast. Wewere, that was a Sunday night, and that was a Sunday night first round seriesand there was a second round game on the next day and I thank you guys weremad at because I was like that has to end and we have to record before thatone begins so we're it was so over time. Remember and I we sit there watchingthe hockey t just they're waiting we're like wow this yeah back forth. The backof it was a track me. They were just of a down the ice. They so awe alwaystouch on how there's there's not that many guys returning from year to year,but there's a few faces that are going to be a little bit amped up for thatgame. So there's your game to watch on Sunday for sure and then number five. Iguess this is where we have to kind of debate here between Maryland and ducks the first place team, that's four andone or the tide for second place team that just beat their big rifle. Iprobably give our band of the south, I would say team in Arelina. They havetwenty seven goals and they have looked really strong in these first five games.I know I know I said before that Marylyn needs to see if they'reconsistent, but I think for the time being, they show that they're a reallyreally tough team to face in that self division. Justin are you here ha ha? I think he's here he's in thebackground he's here: okay, so so, if we do not put the ducks in the powerranking and is my head going to be in a pitch fork here by the time we arriveat the show case, no you'll be good. Okay, that's one vote for Maryland. There'sfour of us, though, just in you may have to be a deciding vote. I do personally. This is nothing to dowith what Terry Watts excitement about thinking that he may be in. I do give alittle more stock in the victory that he had. I know he has his loss is tothe Apple Coral Marylands is to the IT sevens, but I'm going to give a littlenudge to the ducks here. So it's one one I mean I saw retro to take the votewhen I was watching some of the little flyers game and they look pretty solid.You know you guys so Gol Flyers are kind of far down there, but they lookpretty solid. They just they got to...

...find a way to finish out the game. Tolike see like continue that confidence because, like they have it, but theyjust they haven't, seemed to be able to carry it out all the way through thebull like sixty minutes. So they need to definitely work on that, but I think Maryland looked pretty solid, so Ithink it's it's interesting. Oh Jeff, it may come down to you andmay come down to Justin S Marian Walka. I haven't gone to seethem yet, but I am, I think, I'm pretty sure I'm going to see all the Celtdivision games this week for Games on a call which I I cannot wait for theducks to right. This is going to be amazing. This is they're gonna kill. MeIs what I see I mean. I know I know fatal year for them, but he is young.Can you do it over a full season? This is, and this is what be you're gone forwith the power in kings man. This is receiving votes. The protect ducksright, because I did I did. I did vote for them, let that be on the recordeveery one but its rainers rangers. Eighty seven and then new this week, wizards railersMaryland receiving votes, docetic man. This thing could be flipped again nextweek. So well. Maybe I I so excited for power writing, starting to show casefantasy there. In a show case, fool isn't great at what about Sea Coast?Are they at least receiving vote? It's gonna be fun. They Shal Yeah. We should have thereceit. Yes, you just you just gave them a vote, so they're receiving votes.Also. So now we get to the EL P power rankings and this one is kind of interesting.Also because it's a set one defeated yeah, it's a similar debate of you know. Did anyone do enough tosurpass the sevens and the y sevens have played four games so far they didsplit their two game series. With the chiefs on Sunday, there thrive fivegoals of game, O crazy games, rhanto yeah. It was jared Martin who threw thehit from behind on Jackson Hook, and that was a pretty lengthy delay thathad to wait for the ambulance. He had to get stretched off, be ice and thenext game all hell broke loose where there were multiple fights, a couple offace, masking penalties, and it was well not funny, but one of the players Vinecane who gottaught. He was one of the players who fought for the T, seven. They I mean I was talking to some of theparents and they were saying that this player Siampi is like the One playerfrom the Jersey shore whaler. Sixteen Outin, that's like the gentle giant,who had never heard a fly that would never fight anybody. So I think thatjust go you an idea of how intense that game was, and I think now that theseTutein will face each other more, since there aren't really any cove.Detractions like this could be a budding rivalry in the process. Okay, he emailed me yesterday atoning the camp, because I I needed to add two inches of heightand ten pounds of waymire. Oh my God, I think maybe post fight hehad to show just how big he was. Is that maybe what he would know? Maybe so I think that they, I think, like Isaid I don't think anyone did enough behind them to jump the y seven. The railers haveplayed just one game. It was kind of funny the railers played the wolves atboth levels in Laconia on Saturday and one three to an overtime at both levels. So I think I think one two three in theEH LP stays the same e sevens, railers, lumber checks and then the rotatingspot that is number four which started...

...out as the avalanche, who got beat bythe ranches ticket over who got beat by the sea hooks first, every year in theH, l, P C hawks beat the expressing game. One beat the Rangers and game togo for them and quickly. They're in the power ing. Is that th they have to be anumber four and then I think receiving votes in a team to watch. That's youknow. I think they haven't been talked about enough, because they've onlyplayed two games is valley. They beat the wolves in their first game by afive goal: margin they dot the express and their second game. By a fore goalMarch, I think that's another: that's your receiving votes team and there'syour hlp power rakings and just like the HL, it could flip here in just afew days for some of these hlp teams. They actually play four games thisweekend. Every hl team is guaranteed three. They are a number of EH LP teamsthat play for so yeates. Well, it's and, as I hear it's a shorter game, it'sstill only ten minutes shorter, but okay, okay, yes, I would say twentyyour playing five in a longer period to if you look at you're playing twentyfive to twenty, you get that one ice cut, so you get one less time to gointo a locker room. TALK STRATEGY GET REST! So, oh, how about it's adifferent animal? How about this? I reached out to the host railers aboutthe score Kemurs for the weekend. Yep there's two score keepers, one for each rain blue ring one gray,rick they get higher weekend. We like how is like did they do? They know whatthey're starting up for there's over forty five games like. I may take a nap at some pointhere, because it's going to we're going to be there for so long, so I thought Ithought we hadn't done this. We haven't done this since since January, twothousand and twenty like it's it's going to be fun. Well, money is goingto be fun because Tom Plays on Sunday night and PAS t is gonatas gonna hurtour voice is gonna, hurt our hearts. It's going to be so so, depending onhow that came plays now that maybe my tshirt next week, Yeah Yeah, no,seventy funday recording that's for director a four day show case Yehowahappening. I think it plays back into our favor that we can release on nextThursday again next week. This is the only showcase that we start on aThursday yeah. Yes, that new. I is Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday yeah, sowe'll probably do like a double podcast like a loaded podcast.So that runs for like two weeks before that one. Maybe we could do onetogether if we could do it in person, because we c we could do a live one. Wedid. We did bring out the the Youtube live at the finals last year, but thepress conference is right and we recorded on podcast line. The best wasyes the best as Chris for the press copies. Where do I look? Where do I? Idon't Know Cristo Gitai's, right, euoi, know Chris Horses going to wantme to point this out, but the press conference with rich Doatie, yeah yogreat, we think cheap. Were he polled that yeah you all at that reference atthe end of faces, Caltrans Dude, yeah, phony, Chris and rich withtheir movie, quotes back and forth. It was like that was that was a specimenthat what what Bolli? What Gole did I forget to tell to get out of his gearand then like climbed into the chair behind the table with like full. Ithink those were dosy. He was like he was like. I really walked and I waslike. Oh he dude W. I can't really sick here. I kind of stuck it's like a take. The pads of come back in weregot about pefore a Dollon, but there's your but there's your weekly run down.Obviously, a lot of games coming up this week could totally shake up thepower achings, but just to go over them again and the EH l its Rangers. Eightyseven wizards railers Maryland. If they...

...are no longer ravens rankings, everyoneI got overruled the receiving voragine. The receiving votes were the ducks andthe SPARTANS, the EH L P power rankings for the eighty, seven railers, lumber,Jacks and sea hawks welcome to the EH LP, with receiving votes being valley.So with that we get to the favorite segment. If you will the ecrew fantasy challenge, it's time for the e group fantasy challenge and theECONFINNA challenge is presented by file steel, the sport drink of the HLuse the Promo code show that's EF, choked Pu for twenty five percent off.When you check out at bio steel, dot craft, wait to you guys see the hat Ihave for the first day of the showcase. Itsays first place on the front of it because I'm in first place, Wow Lauren called you up this week, yeah you guys from the top. You were up byless than Tom. Still at the top I was up by. I was up by way more first week.So that's not super exciting. For me. Sorry, well, fair! You Three Antony and today I have topoint out. I feel bad for you for this you're forward and defense been thefirst Games they played for you this week. Each got suspended bats to you. Sloots Jackson, Benard Anthony,get zero zero E. that's that's! WHAT'S CRAZY! Right up until the final game ofthe week, Anthony was in the first place for theweek from Bernard Sonsy have to kind of think like. If my guys don't takesuspensions, then I'm blowing this thing away and mel can stop poundinghis chest. An Es in first place pretty much, but it's. This is what makes fansygreat it flips quickly. So does Lauren Laure, who picked first the first weeklast the second week first this week, because Bret Hanley, unfortunately hada great opening week of the season, didn't put up any points in that gameagainst the Wizard Shane Green, though you got that one from Alo. He had agoal on in the SIST. For you that was an excellent pick cats. I think we O-and I like the pick of Pat Alto. Also I think at what hurts you was the wizardswere, like you know what we're going to roll out a different goal, tender andall three games and we're going to win all three games so also got one startin there and one. I got you seven point eight points, but unfortunately I was, as only start,Jackson, collins no points, but that was twelve. A twelve point, eight pointweek for you next was Jeff Jeff. You got a assist from sea wagon weight inthe week net you I saw thatyesterday an assist from Robin Eki. I know when you first saw that noah pain got to startagainst the railers. You were like, where is Chris Jackson, but he did get on the phone it BenatheMiller, being like hey buddy got directions you in the resole did get you a seven,a seven point, two point victory on Saturday, that was that sea hawks came.We talked about inters over Seok and then Louis Joseph Gerinan had fivepoints with a goal and assist. Should the gold count as more because it was atop play. It was like a nasty coal. Absolutely give me, I don't know totwenty I'll take it at. I think I think I was there for that goal. He lookedreally good that he's quite a chippy it player, but he gets a got another loganto scanet, maybe up in Babes Ye. Yes, we back about on he's up to likefourteen points now and five games yeah...

...we mentioned for Anthony a tough weekfor Juli and Bosler Dominic, Metro and Devlin O cane, but but I mean at firstthe first game of that two game set with the little fires and apple core. Iwas like if the apple course sweep this series and Jackson Bernard stands onhis head, like he may create a huge gap because Bernard had a hundred and sixsaves in the two gets. That's unbelievable, like and there's teamsthat I think in this league. I want to say this right. I then there's teamsthat enjoy the shop on, but I watch that game. It was up and down like real.Fifty three shows it was like it was a real fifty three saves each day and andthat's phenomenal to get eighteen point two points from your goal: tender andjust two games. I was at eighteen points total going into that roughriders and at Sevens Game and Hayden Watson got me an assist which gave metwenty points to pass Anthony. But Will Jennings two point on a two assist onepower play. One short handed I mentioned Watson. I had the same painas you jeff that James All did not start in the very first or Jacob. Alldid not start the very first game from Walpole. He started in the second game,but got a win over the chiefs and Egan Schmidt. You know m at the talk to e s.He didn't produce a R, so very dadon. He said Lars. My girl feel sorry man,this n y power play assist Egan. I'm used to you, know two goals and assistsa power play point. I came winner like got well well to figure it out, butoverall standings to Lawrence Point. I am not running away with it. That's what you said, though hot likeOh, it's nice to see you guys from the to I'm gonna go fast into it. Come I'mwaving to you because I'm not going to look back. That's that's the issue!Okay! So about forty three you're at forty point, six Anthony's at thirtynine point: Eight Jeff. I know you feel like you're far behind but you're, notyou're in twenty eight, and you know how quickly this thing can change.EPEAN, there's everyone's got multiple games this week, and this is the bigweek. This is really the big week. So the first pick, though, are for Lauren,and you can give us your picks for the showcase we're going to call this theshow case plus one because of that one game on Tuesday between the railers andsocks yeah. I brought back a couple familiarfaces. We've seen some of these guys picked, but I stole Louis Jansena from Jeff. He was afun one to watch. When I went to that for my game, I was to expressing that,but he was he's quite a little copy thing he gets in. There gets dirty andhe gets. He guys are done for the team, so he's exciting one to have, and thenI brought back Thomas Demsey. He did pretty good for me first week and he'sbeen looking solid ever since so I'm bringing him back to hopefully get mesome good points and see him do some good things and you guys mentionedearlier Nathan. Is it mule or Maler? How Ole you know. You know you knowwhat a fort last. You know what one Buler Miller go find out, because we atthe coaches in this league do not know how to pronounce the namesthey think they do not just the hl I mean no, we found out last year, Dell go tothe players and ask them. I ask I o Mutes Bo is Chris Calls Em. I don'teven know brothers Bar Satters Beep, o the best, the best one, his name, I'msorry to cut you off Loren the best one, because I have the Wizards Jersey onthe wizards, had a goalie name, Corbinian, Wuts and and and there was agame when he beat the avalanche, and Chris was like this guy. Lo Dude Osoiwas like what I continue on. I'm sorry Akare. I want toTang et there and then for my utility.

We were talking about them for powerrankings a little bit. I rose a certain across ano, so I in low group, I chose four differentteams again. This time picked a couple familiar faces from some of our picksin previous weeks, but I'm excited to see how they all do. For me, I thinkthey'll be pretty silent if jude you're welcome to Lawrence is club yeah. Wetalked about him last week and that I was on a fansy team. Should I show youpause for more spits always down for so time a t as well Cliti, fifty four yeah. What clit cliffknows that he can be a pain, but he likes to be a pain right. So cliff sentme a stat change for Tea Maryland cliff you coach, the renegades. You can'tsend me a stat change for team Marilyn. Well, it's from my son. I understandthat and he goes as you can clearly see in the video. Oh, if the video that youtook of your phone on your computer screen that I can't see anything pixelated but like like I've, alwayssaid that all of you and everybody else in this league. You have to be able todish and take it back. Take it back in this leg, so I said to lie IGLEA, it'sso clear in the video, the blurry video, it's so clear, but I did make confirmation from Joshthat it was the past from Graziano it did. It actually helps that thebroadcast Er said Graziano to Donnelly like, but it was just funny that, like cliffslike well, if Josh doesn't set it in, I got Josh is gonna. Send them just giveit time Yo, but we'll be a now. It's a great will be there in person. Don't bea bunch of that changes in person this weekend, I'm sure, but there's thoseare laurence picks. Next up is I'm excited to see who comes up to us andis like hey like I'm gonna get your points or I it's coming. Oh they'll. Doa Lard Wi as gonna it'll be good and you can at that's good, like Neil said,got to take it got to give it. Oh I'm sure, I'm sure they be some cover. Yougot to start picking me IVGA's good. This is where we get all our scouterreports. The neal gets on a daily basis that we start to hit the ground runningwith their boots and catch him in that heaven that he's innew standing soon high high high horse a whole two and a half points ahead ofwarn your pick cheff my picks all right, thecrew guess what I'm coming for all of you. You don't come for that ShinyFirst Place spot in the heavens, got quite the crew coming in. I got acouple of railers because, like we talked to out earlier, got to be smartand go with numbers, so mat PAVENTA. He was in our top performers last week toyea providence from island just found out the nick from not too far away fromwhere I live in Cranston neighbor, five points and three games for him. You hada power play goal in two game: Winters for Prementi those three two goals,both game- winters, so not too bad, and he actually almost as a point in everygame, except for the Rangers game, go and assist to assist at a point. Sothree straight games are hoping that MAC can continue that into the showcase. Excuse me and then the other real I have is utility actually nodefenseman tyler and a Stasi. I'm actually surprised. We have somedefence when they're putting on points already new. Have you the T o? Yes, wedo they're different in the beginning of last year were like who it who playsdefense in this league yeah, who plays offensive defensemen yeah, but Yeah Anna Stozzi. I waslooking at Tylos Roman. He doesn't have any points yet for the railers was abig points guy for the defenceman last year for the railers, but an nozzesalready got a goal and two assists three points and three games power playgo for him and there and then I'm going to steal a gully that Neil had a coupleof weeks ago, John Werber, yes Carlin! I get I'm in a see team Marylin thisweekend for some of the Games of calling that's kind of a no brainerhe's three and one goals against two: Seven one: Nine D, seventeen seepercentage, he's gotten two wins over the rough riders and one went over thelittle flyers and then last, but...

...certainly, not least, from BedfordMassachusetts, the East Coast, Wizards Coal, Scott, welcome my fantasy team.Three points: Three Games, two goals in the sis: Let's go whizzes all theseguys are getting power, Pun points, so please continue to get out the powerplay and back up his no and some guys your has. The bestwill be when Jeff calls a game with one of his fantasy players on this weekend.Remember last year I remember every express game when I had the RenzoLorenzo Maclin can oh those goals. That was, that was a fun time. You werepretty excited about those, but then any time, Jack Siven, scored, Love Zack,but hate exact, because he was on deals all season, but Zack Simon, who was nowreunited with Cody Kam Cable with the molars just one big short, an a Golthat day saw that on hockey TV over in the now yes, I accordin to cody. I asked a very stupidquestion. I said Cody, do they? I do the fans out there shortand Menetaras for just the Toros or whatever it is and he's like he's likeyeah. We don't call it like. No one calls it the full name to say Toro. SoI was like okay, I guess that's a dumb question, but whatever may s like it'sZachor Minnesota, so that's close to and that's close to where he's from heasked me when I'm coming out to golf. I said soon to that Antony your pick, who gets this Leo,just kidding, that's kidding, I well. That's. Actually, one of the reasonswhy I did one of my fix I'll get to that in just a minute. But now you talk about wanting a fantasy and atthe end of the Y, seven rough riders game. Devlin oken had the pucket theright side, and it was at that angle where I could see like shriek behindfrom Okan, and I could see him kind of shoot it towards the net. He had thattop right corner and he just missed- and I is there painful, anthony o beingon the call yeah. Oh no aid bring up the fact that he was on myfantasy team. I gave all of you shouted out the e crew, but no I mean, but fora cane he's a good player, even if he did not get that goal for me, but youno big deal so here the picks for this week, starting off at the forwardposition, I have Jerry Ducky, he has six points and four games. He has agoal in each of his four games. Big reason why the valley junior worriesare for real this season, so he's my pick at forward for defense and theplayer, who will probably get suspended, not really Ryan Bro Yeah. You want to entourer step up, you gotsix points and four games has an overtime winner. So let's see what he'sgot in the show case. Yes, Anthony Keeto in this is this issomething that I do want to bring up. I was watching the I think it was theeast coast, wizards verse, the Connecticut Chiefs, the wizards had aone goal lead with under two minutes left in the third period. TheConnecticut chiefs scored on a dumping from center is Alto, was in goal forthat, and you would think that most goal tenders would fold after giving upsomething like that right, wrong, Altima, a ridiculous aves in overtimelike absolutely incredible, and then he stopped, I think, two out of the twoshots he face in the shoot out. He was terrific and I think that just showedBrazilians. That shows that you know he can rebound after giving up a toughgoal, and I hope that we get to see him in the show case, because I think he isa good goal tender. He wont to find...

...himself by giving up a CENERI school and I think that heworked his way into my fantasy seam. I want to see what he's got and then the utility pick that is fromthe Vermont Lumber, Jacks Tyler Penry, another player who's been racking upthe points three goals: six assists for nine points in just five games and he's a he's, another player that Ithink and it really help out the lumber jacks in the show case, and he was the top lore of the week. Hewas as a long player to a on was you're not as one more nose ones, but Henrywas kind of like sneaking through there and you had to like really kind offocus on him, but he is he's a good he's, a good one to have. He pulled the Michigan, which I have been told bymultiple people that it's actually the Mike leg. I was like. Nobody knows likeMike Lakla. It happened in Michigan. That's why people call if you ask theHL they cut so there's. There is no hang on hang on. Hang on there, my God, there's a difference between there's adifferent, the Michigan and the SPEC Nicol. The Michigan is where theplayers actually pressed down on the PUCK, with their stick kind of like howmice like did it. The special is where you just kind of shove, your bladeunderneath the Puck, where I think it's a little harder to do. But if you cando it right, you can pull it off quicker when Anthony to Varus pulledoff the Michigan for the y sevens. I think a lot of people forget that Peteand Jonas nearly pulled off the spechiel where he was behind the net.No, really he just put this the the punk right under for the sick, bladerighter underneath the pack and nearly squirting one quick motion where it'slike to vers. You can kind of see it on holding, but I think with the Spechiel.It's a quicker move, though harder to pull off. Okay! It's given your boy, see I toldyou he peared, we do we like the goal. Do welike that style on a go school? I think it takes a lot of silly pull that off,especially like what everyone's around the net like that and they're justeverywhere. It's it's, you wouldn't think you'd be able to talk. I give itanother. Five seasons and it'll be something comparable to American malegoing between the legs, where almost almost any player can do it. Now, Oh er,the league, I guess we're split the bull tree, oneagain, because I don't I don't love it. You just really don't like. I thinkit's a cross. I just think it's La Crosse, let's,like put the pluck on the guyers wife Played de on Lacrosse I've watched thatI had no idea what was going on the entire time I had. I had no idea whatwas going on the entire time, but she was a to e, like that kind of help meget in. I T. So it's definitely pretty similar. Well I'd, say it's a bold movebecause, like you said you're going to pull it off quick or you're, going toget decked you're going to w that's the thing right. If I was the FECEMI, Iwould just run through that guy I like to do I I would put you through theglass you guys call me. Oh I'm all the school. I love what a guy goes down ona breakaway and just shoots it now. I also have a dot Soup Jersey upstairsright, so he didn't really just shoot the PUCK. You would do things that wereout of this world right, but I also as quite the swords mit. I just love itwhen a guy walks down and just shoots. That's just me personally, so that'swhy I called a bishion last year against Berat the lumber jacks. Also Imean maybe it's a something in the Water Aye that they're all getting itdone over there. He something on the sick, or that was back when you were atWaterville yeah, so the low down in what's in the water at Letty, he I'min...

...my case picks. Now I got to pull theseup because I again I'm only ahead by a fewpoints by my head, but he always pick all the shows over guys. So so alo myboy, we're going to see him for the first time in a while this weekend weup yes as he as he was to dub me yea, the north, it's not this week. I amkneel from the South this week because my forward is Kyle Patten. He has sevenpoints in the flim gonna be phenomenal. This week was a streel guys picked byall of us. This on defense, James Mellor he's got fivegames already and its first four points or for four g five points in his firstfor game spot. I just tone twist him myself he's he is going to quicklysurpass the total he put up last year of nineteen points over all. I hopethat this works out this way on Anthony Sunday. I don't know if altos going tostart the wizards are very symmetrical. Also, I think Altoprobably get the first game and then a sends of the second game and then goover the thirty game, they're going to kind of kind of keep going one to three,but if they don't on Sunday, Stephan cohanaco would bepretty cool to have our guys go against each other cool Hanak. Honestly, Iwould say, was the second place. Votes for rookie of the year last year,he's only an o two, so he was an o to last year. Think about that for asecond and he was the starting gold tender for for the railers throughoutthat year he had fifteen wins and I think if there's no, nobody named Angymore in our league last year, he probably runs away with the rookie ofthe year award he's off to a great start. This year, two hundred fortynine saves on fifty one shots, which is good for a one point. o O goes against the averageand the nine sixty one safe percentage. So obviously we mentioned it with Jeffearlier the four games were going to take advantage of at least two. Maybe three starts in there forcool Hanak and then really just to emphasize how I am kneel from the south.This Week, Warren Baren picked Nick Rasin, who I was on Nick. I actuallyhad. I actually had the TAB open there you go cliff. I hope you heard that I am picking will rose and I think thatwhat's funny is there's a lot of times that there are players who are havinggreat seasons that get overshadowed by a guy having just a a like a pointed tomore than them and rose, and in this first five games has five goals andfour assists. Two power play points. A shoit handed point in a game winnerhe's had almost as good in a season or starts of the season as Gracian O hashad, and he will continue to have this week of the showcase. So those are mypicks and I think, K that we're all hoping that the increased number of games this weekleaves to even more points for all of us, which leads us into what to watchfor before we wrap things up. Here's what you watch for this week in theshow: What's a watch force presented by hockey TV, the official streamingplatform for your hl and EH LP action to the two thousand and twenty one, twothousand and twenty two season, so some games to watch this weekend wementioned earlier the we just made this a game to watch number three wizardmissus number four railers on Sunday I haven't had a chance to look yetanthony. Did I give the at seven P team a bad schedule this weekend? I think o o like to be Spaghetti again. Let'sjust let's US stretches just check, they play the wolves on Friday. Theyplay the warriors and express on Saturday, so they'll already be thereright. There's no there's no bus lakes on Saturday, the already be the nightbefore and they play the steaks on...

Sunday. So, okay, not not a badschedule, then this time around. What did Okay Committee? Did it previousyears previous years? Not so good! You were trash. He said that not me so well! I guess I guess I'll point out.I gamed a watch on on each day because I spent so much time looking up theschedule for this week in the EH l, I think little flyers, lumber jacks has ahas a chance of playing out kind of like the first lumber, Jack Spartansgame did run and gun up and down. The ice could be looking at a lot of goalsthere. I was just going to say I think, not even like a game to watch. I thinkthey're scheduled to wash man's Terman. It's definitely want to keep track ofbecause lot flowers they have yeah because they have quite a few teams.We've been talking about this whole time because they're starting off withthe lumber, Jacks and then the next day they have the rangers and they'refinishing off with partans. So from Nora's been talking about with the barrankings. This is quite a schedule for them to have, but I'm excited to seehow they do. That's. Why I love about the show is tunes all the south teamsplaying the north, because, obviously, when the south comes to north, likethis, you want all them to play. So many games you can to help with thetravel and stuff so yeah. That is first. We missed that last year in the first eseven game, we're talking about number three versus number, four, so much the first. Eighty seventh game for thenumber two rape team is against the number three ranked wizards on Friday,so that to be the game. The Wizards may have one of the toughest schedules ofanyone this week because they go eighty seven lumber, jacks railers, that'sthat's tough! That's tough! We get set the wizard schedule. Yousaid: that's the wizard schedule, yes M so day, three, like an I'm, a standbefore little fiers have the spartans that day Maryland and seahawks. I don'tknow why. I remember things like this. I know the last time they played in theshowcase, an went to overtime so and we have a few marylan players throughoutour fantasy picks. So maybe something the watch for there. Let's somethingit's not a game to watch for necessarily but a Jersey to watch forare those not lumber. Jacks black dresses, those are pretty fresh. Ithought I thought the plaid was pretty cool in the white ones, but when yousee it on the black jerseys, that's something else they had that at thegame. I went to this last weekend and it was amazing. Can I point out onething: This is a shot I guess is we got you to I'm curious to see if theRangers busted out the black jerseys themselves, because for the practice jerseys the lumberjacks, the lumber jacks black dresses are better than the Rangers. Oh and,and the Rangers are all in one in the black jerseys right so like so keep playing in the black jerseys.Everybody else will appreciate it. What is this in? No Swat is the line I'm notsuperstitious, but I'm kind of stitious or whatever that line is like yeah. I Emy avalanche, the avalanche, one both of their championships in the Navy, theDark Blue Jerseys, and then they only brought the golds last year. So I dobelieve in some of that Jersey stuff, so we we'll have to if we notice anytrends with Jes. Are you saying that the lumber jacks are going to do well,since they lost them their bacteria? I just want to see you make it a hot takerate just want to see what happens is when I see what happens. That's all ofthis movies are fun yes, but Nein, the hot seat. I just want to see whathappens. I think I think I create a crazy thing to watch on the last daySunday. I don't know if I did this intentionally, but we go. Eighty sevensea hawks e hlp, followed by eighty seven shots hl little little back to back action there,which is it's funny because Adam holy an B and bills Zanaboni are they hadcoaches of an hl, but they also go on the bench for the HLP Games as well.

Can't wait for Laura to see this bill.An a bony is a big clapper like clapping, right and and like speedduring this is bes he's happier there is a Shok pe games he's like waiting.You See me during a peg meal and I'm like why he goes. I am the biggestchield in the world and I was like okay, he goes. I'm clapping, I'm high five E,I'm hugging. I was like okay, we'll get some shots of that, for sure spells ispurdue. The head coach, no Mike Richard is is the head coach of the HLP teamand they also have a assistant coach. This year named Alex Radcliff, who wason a television, show that your title Bo, I don't watch TV, but people knowwe're asking you thought I watched it like I've heard of it. I've seen thatfor it, but I never watched it. It's called below deck Mediterranean. Idon't even know what it's about, but they he they posted, something that heposted, and I was like man. This guy has a hundred and forty five thousandfollers like and he's commenting about the EH. So my goal for the weekend. Ionly have one to go for the weakness to meet him so that I could be like whatelse can we to do to kind of just dip into that big audience to yeah? We doit. Instagram live with Alice rat lad. I young, maybe that'll, be a greatfeature story. Perhaps yes, there, it is there. It is so so many good gamesto watch this weekend again. Just for those that are coming to the show case,if you're in the lobby or in the sands, you will be asked to wear a mask. Thereis no gate at the door. There is a new brewery in the facility. Since we werethere last, they were still they were still building it. When I was therelast, which was forever ago, but it's honestly there's a lot of Nice ranks inour league.
