Last but not least, we preview theupcoming schedule and circle a number of games to tune into on hockey TV. What's up e crew, are we all caught upon sleep from the showcase, absolutely not new everyone else? I think Idefinitely am. I think I heard about that Monday. I definitely kind of mysleep. I am. It was a fun show case, but I'm right back in it. Let's go like.I just totally forgot what it was like to walk out of a rank, like literallyin the middle of the night. Basically, I think we walked out of there a fewnights close to ten thirty eleven o'clock and then stay to yourself. Ihave to be back inside this building in less than twelve hours like a two yearssince we've all done this guy. I've forgot that feeling this is a MericanDay. My alarm went off, my body was just like. No, this is not it. Ithought I felt like I was crying for me like what are you doing to yourself, but we have to have the same big smileon our face from the first game of the day to the last game of the day forforty plus games that took place, it was an unreal weekend. I mean we'regoing to get into it. The week weekly run down here in a second, but can wejust talk for a second about how close the Games were? All of them? Oh, my God,the amount of o TS and shoot out. I so I just like nuts for the game games,some of them like some of the blow ups. Sorry they not to let you off werewe're close like a time. So, like you look at the box score like I know, Ihad some games that I called that were six two finals, five, three finals, butif you watched the entirety of the broadcast the game, they were close forthe majority of it a anthing. What were you going to say for the EH PremierDivision? I think they had the ten games in the first two days.Six of the ten games went beyond regulation either to overtime wereshoot out. Wow, I think that's a perfect transition. Let the rot downit's time for the key crews weekly run down ye show weekly rucked out asdropped you by the junior hockey podcast you now for junior hockey, newsknowledge and nonsense thick. He Oui TJ PODCAST COM. It's a perfect transitionbecause we're going to start with the EH L P power Akins this week. Becauseof what Anthony just said like we were like, I was so cut up in the firstcouple of days with us how many schools were there like it was likeoverwhelming, and then you looked up and you noticed what Anthony justpointed out like here- here's the first set of games that took place right five.Four over time, two one shoot out four three over time: one nothing three toshoot out three. Two over time like it was intense right from the get go ofthe HLP. So let's flash back. So everyone knowswhere, where we were at going into the show case going into the show case,number one was the y seven number two with the railers number three, with thelumber jacks number, four, with the seahawks. Of course we had all thegames took place in the show case and we had the railers shutting out. Theseahawks yesterday find nothing who is the number one team in the ELP of I mean the railers are unblemishedstill right right. Even now, they just hosted on the five game vender and lookat the goals for calls against. That's always a big stat. We always likefourteen goals for three schools against in five games. So if we want todo quick, Math Roe, starting goaltender skulls against under one thirtingilltenders to they've used a couple, they've used the couple right, Savior Lapierre is three: No, with apoint. Seven one goes against average. In Nine D event, four save percent it'scam wickens is to no, but they point. Five six goes against average inthousand nine de an event: six save percent. It's like the numbers are outof this world. They have to get up a goal in three games. They have, itscored a lot right. F. Five wether was their highest Goto of the year becausegoing into that, it was three two twoo...

...two right. So three, two two one twonot thing to do think vinal hut without a doubt, they're number one right nowinteresting team, very interesting team, though for sure, but I feel like that'swhy I would give them more credit to niels they're, getting it done by theperfect coaching formula. The perfect hockey formula right, don't give up alot you're, not scoring a lot but you're not giving up a lot. So you winthose tight games, especially early on when everything is tight and guys aretrying to figure out. You know chemistry with lines and coachestesting out certain players, seeing how their stamina is. Who can you rideharder? Do you have to ride a little less? So I would give the realise morecredit for this five and a start, because they're doing it on in allthree areas forwards to fence and goaltending, and I'm not sure if thisis home work for you an Anthony, but I'm going to give you an assignment. Iwant to know what the railers record is like dating back to the end of lastyear, like going into the playoffs right, because I don't think I thinkdoing end of the post season. We thought that the Rangers are going towin, that division go to the finals and then the railers, the one that made therun when all the way to the championship came against the eightyseven they're, probably as hot as any team has been dating back to last March.So there's a a small. If you will, you can go on a homework as Simon for youanthony number two. Well, the t seven lost a couple times of the showcase. I thinkthat there this is where it gets tough, because we're going to have this sameissue at the ehel level. You know how high up in the ranking is going to teamjump if they weren't in the rankings. The week before I mean at the year, the seven man Ithink we can give you the o'moore here. I'm talking about the warriors, thoughthe warriors are five and one are they number two is just because they need tobe talked about in this. I remember I watched them. One of my like favoritegames watching was the one that they had the last day that were the firsttime to play, and they were disgusting Silis and that'slike a compliment like an absolute complet. They were disgusting. Well,that's fun yeah! They were so good breakfast like watching on the window,and I was like this is just nuts and I was like granted. They were playing therenegades who, I think I think it was the night before they had played theABS, a Fire Elly, so they could have been a little bit tired, but at thesame time valley was us on top of it. They looked great like they were justdoing all the right things and I'm like this is an exciting team to watch themlike for the be like that's an exciting team to watch. Well, here's the thingtoo, like yes, you could say that it was against the running ates, but theyalso went up against joy, Jamieson and goal. I sit it on the broadcast becauseI was on the call for that game that, like you, have to work hard to score onjoy, Jamieson, you put them on any other team. He leads you to thechampionship. That's how good I think he is, and I think the valley junior wars havesome really good players. McAlister Ward, the goal of the show case thatwas that came right. Yes, yes, okay, yeah! That was the number one play. I thinkright did we do that De word? There were so many there were actually toomany top cools does really take a a A. I were. I A beauty got Luke Denny. Yougot no lumen. All three of them are exceptional offensive players. They canmove the puck really well, they can dangle the Puck, they can shoot, theycan score. So valley is a very good offensive team. I think kind of theopposite of the railers junior hockey club and I was going to make thecomparison to the railer's P team to the wizards eh l team, where they mightnot be scoring a lot of goals but they're very strong in the back endending goal where they can win those low scoring games. I like it, so I think we don't look anyone of like the top players this week too. So that's Ye, that's sayingsomething about the team as well now September Sarthe, well, that we talkabout the wizards when we go back to the HL, because I got the pleasurecalling two out ther three games and they look good. So here's here's The ppower things question is we all agree. The warriors are in at five and one their only loss was to the ety sevens, but the UNI sevens lost three totalgames in the show case. So I think that means valley has to be to do. You agree,but the loss wasn't a big one, either for look at the scores they wot to tothree. They saw the they felt. Nothing really came back exactly they didn't.They didn't just sit down. Let it happen, they came back and fought forit. So like I wouldn't call that a huge loss yeah, it's a big team to lose to,but four and a three like final is not a huge loss, so say we're. A consensusvote then sounds like so railers one warriors to who is three Vermont Lumber, Jacks mafishe same time.They did. I will say, though they did...

...go, one one in two at the showcase, so it wasn't like they were the bestteam. They weren't the worst team by any means they they lost the Walpole inover time. That was probably we keep talking about crazy games. That was thefirst night and Walpole scored, was seven seconds left to tie the game andthen want to have in over time this nuts. Then they lost the little flyersin the shoot out the next morning, bounce back with the one against thechiefs and the they got to shut out, like everybody else does by the railers so also gonna bring up to is the newSeok, the brand e team yeah they went to, and one may be, the T, seven fiveone and then three two over the little flyers, and that was that was what wehad last week for three and four right: Three with the Lumber Jacks for withthe seahawks. Are we sticking with that? I'm? Okay! If you stick with that, Idon't, I think, there's teams that I seem like the woodle flyers could couldbe receiving votes because they did have a very strong weekend. I thinkthey won their first two games in the shoot out like they were like Yep, likeI think almost every game went to over time to like they. They both the Flyerteam, a looking pretty solid, like they yeah, there's like they lost it, one ortwo games, but like as a whole, both teams are looking pretty good yeah. Solisten! Listen to the five games so far played by the little flyers, P team.They lost on opening dianthy. You called this one at the eighty, seven sa wild seven to six game. They beat the Rangers one, nothing in the show casethey beat the lumber jacks three two. In a shootout, they beat the wolves toone of the shoto and they lost in the seahawks three to talk about tightgames every single time. I think I think we go railers onewarriors to Lumber Jacks, three sea hawks for receiving votes, littleflyers. Okay, the silence the silence isconfirming it. Silence is defining in a good way of to those in favor, say I I I, I think our executive producerbehind the curtain, as so that's agree I'll just so a beens do chime in ifyou'd like to say something for votes, not even a mention for the expresscoding, Oren, beating the H, seven and lumber Jackson. I did just take a look.They went owed to the star Yeah, four, three, nine one. Five one wins: Hmm wesit, we do need to point out. They did come back and beat those lumber jacksright. So so I would even then maybe say: Walpole is in the top for H, sneaking in, but the era were prettygood true. At the same time too, they were at the mercy of having a morninggame and then a night game so, like they kind of you could say they got alittle bit screwed there. Here we go here now we're all going to come out mythroat, a showcase ges, this street episode of these gay- Hey, that's Laura!Not Me, I'M NOT SORRY! I talked to a lot of people this weekend. Some peoplesaid that, like that plays a factor in the way that teams play if they have it.I came in a borning game immediately. The next day like that is a cute likethat, can really like mess with them. It definitely close, I'm not going todiscount that some teams had to go the other way. Well, when we talk about theHL ill talk about one game that I thought I was going to go like that,and it didn't well it's. This is where I get talk,but it gets fun right. Like you know, yeah Walpole had a perfect tree in allweekend. They probably need to go in at that point. It's a good point by Justinthe seahawks are for and to and their oltis es areagainst the railers twice they've been shut out so far. I let's back track. Let's go eighty sevenwarriors expressed seahawks receiving votes, little flyers, I like that, andwe could say lumber jacks to so now, we're now we've given six teams alittle bit of logs, all right, we're moving more places andthen turn e votes. That's perfect! Now get your s lot, because the EHL's goingto be a lot tougher yeah I mentioned this. Probably I endedup doing twelve broadcast. All the H, L and I said this is going to be a lot ofhard work for myself and the rest of the ECRAN. It comes to these powerrankings. All five teams did some interesting things this weekend, HeyJefferson, at least you didn't have to stand in the penalty box for any games.I did it. Unfortunately, I was on the blue rat the whole time you were on thegray or marine. The gray ranks freezing well. They have to be, in contrast thatI will say we love the fidelity banister. I center don't want toBesmirch anything, but my angle was you saw it was kind of tough. I do not likebeing at that low you're at the other end of the ice, then when it goes allthe way, the other end and that net I found out is made of Kevlar. So that'sa little hard to see the I'll, never get a puck to go through yeah. Well,that's something I'm used to because of Jersey shore arena where they have theblack netting, sometimes can be tough to see through. I did call therenegades junior warriors game in the...

...blue rank and it was a little hard forme to. I was getting mixed up with lute dennyand no Lodman, because they're both left handed shots and one one playerhas a number. Forty six. The other player has a number forty eight up tojust going by the Jersey numbers. It was tough to to tell who was who, but once they wereplaying on the the near side closer to where our vantage point was, it waseasier Gosha, so eh L. I think what stands out to me about the showcase isthat in years past- and this is coming from college coaches to the the gap, ifyou will, between the top tier in the Middle Tier, has been bigger than itwas this year like, I have never seen a showcase this competitive from start tofinish and like I have no idea who some of these teams are. I Know Justin wantsgoing to ask the question right so I'll, just segment I'll, just quickly say whoare the Lover Jacks? Who are this part of the lead? who the walls who who arethe warriors? Who are the seahawks? Who are the apple core? It's literallyeverybody, though it's literally every it is it's crazy and like going back towhat the rankings were before the showcase got started. We were. Wehad rangers one, Eighty, seven, two wizards three railers for Marilyn fiveand the two points I have to bring up up until yesterday's game. When theseahawks beat the railers. I felt pretty good about where I wanted to goright and even the wise, the Hawks fanes the wizards were a perfect vine.a No the wishes were the last team in this league to lose a game on Sundayand, of course, they lost it to the railers who got them in the playoffslast year they weren't able to get events there. So the question is: Who,who is the number one team in the EA show? I don't want to answer this first,because I don't really know what else I take this. This is where I kind ofbrought it up in the HLP side and it's going to sound weird because they wereoutside the top side, weren't even receiving votes, but I think it has tobe the walpole express yeah. They look pretty good, just homesome likes whatthey have over there. I did get to do and actually, speaking of that perfecttime deal, I did the express railers game and what a comeback that wasWasser Josh will tell you was put in it to them. They were up to not them formajority of that game and then they scored three and answered goals.Worster took up major penalty with a couple of minutes, left Josh runs manpay rip the rister top shelf. I was the thing of beauty and the ex I thoughtthat game was going to go to ot and I honestly wanted that to go over time.That was one of the better games. I UN player in a watch. It was the firstgame. I A shirt was like a solid in that bosher was very good bone. That'sright, yeah. That was the first game of the show, its first game of the shouslike, let's just just start out, let's just jump right into it and they wereonly one and one going into the showcase only played two games. Theyplayed more games in the showcase than they have played the entire season,leading up to it. Yeah that I mean see hawks both came in a two games, so wereally didn't know who he either team was, and after this walpoles startingto figure out a little bit sea hawks. I don't know like you said I it Alohas. They struggle the top. That was theapple core game that I did that they lost six to two Kobe Walters, a hatch, Rick and Lauragot to interview him after he was all jacked up and excited Walpole as an organization went aperfect six, an e on the show case, the HL EH LP Combine O. do they get aplaque for that? They should right. It's just. It's a manner clean sweet.It's just going to look weird when our number one rate team in the League- andI were we're going with it- I'm going to say I think they have to be becausethey went a perfect three and all only to to do that. Let's Go red trade tothey are in fourth place in their division. As we said, Pardo it's nice,it's so weird I mean they was Wain. They've played the fewest number ofgames right. So when the game count, when the game count, even a salt belt,of course, so it will, it will make it. It will make more sense, but at thispoint they lost the open or one of them to see hats. They won for straightsince they're the number one eighteen they have to see. They were the onlyteam to win three games at the showcase, the Chlo and again, like we talkedabout with the railers P team. They're doing it the same way too. They havetwelve gold score and seven goals again so they're not putting a whole heck ofa lot of pucks in the net, but they're not seeing a lot go past them either so tough way to way but they're gettingdone. Honestly Neil, I think you could just put the entire East Ivison in thepower rank. I would not disagree with that because I mentioned it in theRecap: This division is stated: You have the East Coast Wizards right now,they're, five and one you got the wall, pull expresse they're moving up withthe form one record: they had a perfect...

...show case. Then then you had the valley.Junior warriors didn't have the best show case, but they're still very goodteam. I still think they're forel and they got the Boston junior rangerswhere they have that O P, that overpowered goalie tandem inChristain Na Canyer. So it's a gauntlet in there there's so many good teams inthat division and it's tough to kind of horse them aport and that it's a good point, because the rangers were one and the wizardswere three and all right. We got Walpole in atnumber one, the new number one team. The question is: where, where do we gonext with number two right? The Rangers two losses are against the railers,which was outside of the show case and against the Witley, which was in theshow case the wizards only loss is against the railers. Also, so do youput more stock in that extra loss that the that the rangers have against thelittle flyers was just one last game technically played than the wizards therailers? I think there's one team that we haven't mentioned yet, which I thinksome people might some people might think their record wouldn't be worthmentioning, but team Maryland was pretty hot going into it. They only hadone loss and it was against the eighty seven which had been one of the topteams and they only lost by one goal and they ended up losing to thesealocks which we have seen are kind of making a name for themselves, and theyonly both those games. They only lost by one it's another. One of those oneswere like their losses, aren't huge they're only losing by one role in bothof those games, so I think they need to be talked about for sure. Like I don'tknow my left out of this, and he was I al. The wizards too are like, as wejust mentioned, I lining solid. They were totally undefeated coming intothis. They only lost to they lost to whister and Wester's making name forthemselves to so it's I think the wizards in Maryland definitely need tobe contenders for this top lives. This is Anthony's transitive property. I caused the S. speet Maryland, see HOSloss of the apple core right, that's what I'm saying it's like be.They beat the railers, but the railers, the the rangers and the wizards and the game that that's the thing thesea hawks Gavin against the apple cord. They did not look very good now theydid have Griffin Nar in that he lose his first start. He ended up gettingpulled for Nathaniel Hawkins, who seems to be taken over as the starter f fromhere on out, we'll see. I know, Co Santa Bony likes him a lot, but yeah the apple core were the applecore, are going to score a lot of goals this year and, as we saw con coun andKobe Walters, so they made the seax look bad, but they made the Rangerslook interesting to be a was a five three win for the Rangers Apple Core,had them on their keels. For a while, too so, but when you look at thewizards like, if you look at their like their record so far, the season they'renot letting in a lot of goes. Their goal telling is solid. Their defense ishelping them out to like e literally the three gods groups, their record sofar in what for five or six games is three and two, when three one in threeand one in two and one in three and two win and O two one loss like that goal.Tending is solid like rock solid, and I got to see like two of their goals playthis weekend because they had all ton for a couple games, but then they alsohad. I believe it was either as I over or sometime they had not tin that lossand like I played all so that's not a big loss. They only like they don't leta lot of goals in so that it's definitely like a team to look atbecause, like your goal, tenting is that solid? You shouldn't have much toworry about yeah. I I agree with the wizards but Laren. I also want to goback with T Marylyn. I think my only reservation is when you look at the theteams that they did beat. They play the Connecticut chiefs and then the S coSpartans. So I think you have to take the strength of schedule to count theirone loss came against the sea hawks of all their in last place. They wereplaying in the Thunderdome that is known as the East Division. The thunderdome, the Connecticut chiefs,know the team, though, who are they? They won five, four of a valley. Thelast game we had is the h. They want an overtime. You saw the no winter therefrom t dat sufcit me either that because they lost some tough games,they got shut out a couple of times and I was like okay, it looks like ballymight walk all over them and then nope yeah valleys been pretty hot and then,when talking to the chiefs at the end of that again, they're like you got totalk to divine who's. The dustiest player on the team is so good. Eawsonthe bus watching that shoot out and when I saw him pull the dead, Sukindeak, I just shouted in like it was it was so unexpected it was gross. It wassilky. It was so mischievous of him to...

...pull off at such an unexpected time,and I mean that that that alone should shouldearn props at. That was a terrific shootout goal was honestly when you cancome off with turn like the Tocasan B, a team like that. That's probably got alight, a Fian o them, so they may be. Someone would need to pay attention tocoming out yeah good. So we go back though we go back, thoughwe have walpole one who is number two. It's got to be the wizards okay, Ithink. Okay, we all say wizards WHO's number. Three. I think you can of ragest. How far dothe Rangers Fall? They want two of their regents. We got to talk about theseven old. Yes, we talk about like the the strength schedule for the MarylandLing. At the same time, to like these are quote unquote like easy teams, somepeople I say but like they still did well- and some of these, like teamsthat some people are kind of discounting they've, come back and beatsome of the top teams in the show cats. So there nobody to shake a stick at soyou can like you could try to say. Oh, they had kind of an easier schedule,but at the same time, if you watch the showcase anything could happen in these,like teams that are kind of lower in the standings, they can come back andbe one of the first place teams. So I wouldn't discount Lauren Watch Marilynat three she's like pushing for her heart, push push push Antony shake andI think they look pretty solid at who do you want to. I would okee the Boston Engineer Rangersat three either them or maybe valley all right. So one vote for the Rangersone vote for Maryland, Jeff me or you than me. If we have to go to atiebreaker, we will okay, that's that's what I'm having a tough time going backand forth to right now is I did I do all the Rangers Games. Let's See Valley?No, I did two out of the three. So I did a win in a loss. Didn't do the fiveone winnat four years. I don't know if they played they didn't not play poorenough to drop them from one to four. I don't think so. I'm going to go rangersthree well. The vote has been submitted, butby just in art shot. So even if I say Maryland, I even if I stay Maryland, itlooks like we're going rangers three, but but that's good by Lord, so thatgives us express one wizards to Rangers three, your East devision MaryWan, for move over north of vision. Here comes the East in two thousand andtwenty one. There is a new division seriously, then so Maryland four andthen five everyone pick here we go like it couldbe the Ale legal. It could be the lumberjacks it could be, it could bethe railers. It could be the Dutch eighty seven I who's number five like.I have no idea. If I, if I had to act, O t episode over episode over it's so tough, it's so dod it changesweek to week we mentioned, maybe not the toughest schedule for Maryland.Beating a team like seat coast Basiko swept the lumber jacks to two weeks ago.Right like it's, it's so hard to figure out who is who early atom this year. I think that any team we put into thisfifth spot. We really can't go wrong. I would say for this week, I'm going to say railers, okay, I'm with rails. I can get behindthat, but I think at the riles ducks Neter omos there. I think there is a n,I W, U D, I think they start to make a name for themselves. They don't Er.Their winds are pretty solid and their losses aren't terrible. They could bebetter, which is saying something, but their ones are pretty good in theirlosses. Aren't that bad, so I think they at least need to receive somebones for sure: Okay receiving those name Spencer Quinn player the month inwe. So yes, as so receiving votes ducks and six others-is that we're going to say, talks in the rest of the League you'reall right there, I well we'll say, receive boats ducks a man. This is like you could say he beatprovince. The protect ducks only played two games. What was against a one wasagainst the New England wolves and the other one was hang on. I had theschedule right here and the other one was a five two lost to Walpole, so I still think the protect junior ducksneed to, and just for the record, I'm not going to say the eight sevensdeserve to receive votes either, because I know that they lost to theNew England wolves right O way. They need to prove themselves to get backinto the power writings or to receive votes. But I the protect junior talks.No, I'm sorry Lauren! I disagree with...

...you. I don't think that their windswere too impressive just yet he we are arguing over who is receivingvotes right now. That's the has chacora battle hell the sevens and protect of a littlebit of animosity between the two in organs. So Jeff it comes down to usagain are the protect ducks. This is were arguing for number six right now.Are they receiving votes? I say yes, I wat Wat past me in the spot. I didthere. I deter three. I did their eight three victory and they did look prettydamn good for the first time that was actually the first time I had ever seen.The protect in your ducks live all right. Laz Kin O go see them, that'show weird it was to all week. A long kept saying this is the first time thatprotect is playing. The Ningal is the first time that the rangers are playingthe applicare in two years, like yeah. We think this is hard talk about beinga coach. When I mean some of these coaches have all stayed in the league.You know I mean Mike was Azeris still with the apple course so, like yearsago, those teams are still coached by the same people, so systems aresomewhat similar, but players are different, so yeah, that's, I think,that's why I was so tight. All these teams had no clue what the heck theother side was going to do. I will say that they are also receiving votes justto protect ourselves a little bit when a week from now more craziness hashappened and we need. We need to move teams out and move teams did okay. Ipay it's on a schedule. This week they got to play team Maryland twice andthen eighty seventh Wednesday, so I guess we'll see what they are after theend of this week. Right yes, so I knew that the powering is to dominatethe week to run down this week, but they should at right just take a wholeepisode. We already had an hour so with that, like a you want me tofind my voice, I found it I was. I was fine for some of these teams is time. Iwas paying attention to those games. I wasn't just wandering around. I waspaying attention the best part about it was that I guess that earlier in thispodcast- and maybe this changes over the course of the year when we went into every game thisweekend, you could have said you could have made a case for he either side ofthe way and the game swung that quickly we saw it. I mean just to recap, a fewmore games. We saw Secos go up three, nothing on the will fliers and thenlose five. Three. We saw the Apple Court leading against the warriors andthen they lose in the second half of that game. The these games swung soquickly and the gaps from where the top is in the middle is and so on it itdon't exist. There is, there is no top right now there really isn't. The topconsists of rit middle really at the top. Lash middle is combined togetherwith like thirteen or so teams, with a few teamskind of struggling behind them, but I just to touch on a few of those teamsjust to make it a point like you could say the wolves or a team. That's likestruggling, it's, not a team. I want to face in the playoffs right now whenthey have richers up front like he is as dynamic a Ford in this league, andwe I saw that she's what you guys talked about the chief warriors game.The chiefs have four losses right, but their goal to Frens was only five, soit's like one of the other one of those teams that has lost so many close gamesthat a bounce here or there and then maybe they're above five fuck. So again,as Jeff pointed out, there are teams that have some gaunt left schedulesthis week, so one week from now we'll clear out all five and do it all overagain. Somehow things a little easier for US play.Some more games play some tougher opponents, everyone's getting a littlemore comfortable into the season, and I mean that's something I saw a lot tothis week was in my games- was a decent amount of penalties which you'd expectlike we said. A lot of these guys are familiar with the systems of the twoside. A lot of these guys were really jacked up to see the twenty plus scoutsat a time they were watching each game so yeah. Well, I think the Games willstart to clean themselves. Up Teams will really start to figure things outas we keep going and we got more games. A Lot e seems like a lot of teams, areplaying like three or four games this week to you know, which is just great,which is awesome, and it's a big reason why a lot of us went in differentdirections, with our fantasy picks. So, let's get to the EGRE fantasy challenge,it's time for the e group, Fantasy Challenge, eyespots drink O. U S E fromCosta's show for twenty five percent off when you check out at biotech. So I think we all had productive weeks at the show nice tosee you all from the top. Oh my God, Oh my God, you're in your true. If there was a number in front ofthe decimal now you were ahead of me because you'reahead to be like pointsix, i would be more battle, but it's...

...only point six and these standing the same argumentfrom last week, you're only like let like less than two points ahead sotroman to true fair. We all had productive weeks, though, and just torecap the overall totals that were at laren is at seventy point two i am atsixty nine point. Six anthony is at fifty five point four and jetat fiftyso jeff you in the s. I go, i'm here what you started to t catch upa little bit in order of what what we finished last week. Lauren had the best week, which is whati helped her jump in the first than myself, then jeff, then anthony so torecap, anthony's points and then get his picks. I didn't mind yourselections of jerry ducketing, tyler penry. They just decided. They didn'twant to get your point during the showcase this week. So that means ithat was a fairy anthony everyone else in verba put a bucket of points, and iwas feeling for you buddy. When entry just tashmit went off, making us go every gongoe. I talkedabout that. I was like. Are you just trying to give us all a hard time fornot picking you and you go see? I feel bad. I didn't do anything last weekyeah. I was there for that response. That was funny. So g louis joseran, too,was kind of clitiae on points. So ryan brow got anthony a gold to assist thepower play point and then jeff kind of touched on this earlier. He only gotone star at a pat alto, which was a win with six point. Eight fassy points butwas interesting about the wizards and some in the watch. Even at five and onethey've had six games and three goalies start two games a piece. So it's toughright because you got we've seen alto picked twice, he's gotten wins, but itstuff, because you know he may only get one start because they're using everyguy, so anthony overall brought in fourteen point eight points last weekand he got to pick first this week. Who did you go with this week? Campany?Okay, so here are my fantasy picks, i think, to start things off, i'm goingto go with two new comers starting off at forward maryland native newcomer fortea, maryland, farol din and he went off in the showcase full for four goals.Three sits for seven points in the three games. They picked up the hattrick against the seahawks hockey club. I lost that game, but he looks reallyimpressive offensively on to see what he's got for the divisional gamescoming up next for defense, i'm going with ryan davy's.Another newcomer has played three games all in the show case, and he picked upa goal in to assist, so i think, he's another player that will really helpout with ryan mcgrath r squad and f r for goal. I have to go with thereturner nathan muller to an or record in twenty three safe percentage in hisfirst two games, and i think that number is only going to go up as hegets to play more games for the utility pick this one's a little. This one could be considered a reach,but i have a reason for it: i'm going to go with ever schneider and in hisfirst seven games. He has only four points: two goals to assists, butsomeone who's watched their games. This is a player who was fast. This is aplayer who is generating scoring chances by the bucket loads, he'sgetting a lot of chances he's using his speed in the transition and into somecollege coaches, and they were talking about them poking about poets, who theywant to see for the college showcase and one of the coaches said all youknow. I hope nipal are right, an option because i'm going to write in everyschneider and for him i think, he's going to break out. I think the pointsare going to come and i'm hedging my bet that it's happening this week andthat's why he's my utility pick? I was going to ask you about thatanything because he is a depth guy, and i was interesting when i saw that, buti knew that you would tell us why you did and well and co. We told every teamto submit nominations for the all star team against thecollege programs, and i, the t, seven didn't put him in the initialnominations, but that college coach did say that same thing to me. The anthonyjust brought up that. Maybe he should be the guy and thenanother thing to watch, and i know this is the second time that mules beenselected this year he's only playing. This is only a second year and it feelslike he's been with the rangers for a while he's already at twenty threecareer wins. I don't know if he has there's enough and the parody doesn'thelp. I don't know if there's a way that he could catch brendan, braley's,fifty one but thirteen wins away from from cracking his way into the top ten.Maybe it's too early in the year to start a little bit of a milestonetracker, but i think he's that type of guy that, especially when it comes to tfantasy, you just lock him in and if...

...the team has multiple games, you knowthat he's going to win at least one for the rangers, so those are anthony'spicks to recap the week that jeff had he had coal scott. I have not confirmedor denied. I don't. I don't know where, where col scott was the second two daysjeff, he may have been injured. We yeah he got an assist. Tell her anastasiegot you a goal to assist in the power play point john werber got you a victory by way of a shut out and helost the game as well. So we still got so ten points and then matt pomena gotyou three points to give you nineteen. Overall. That's correct and actually cimentalone out late with that injury too. So i actually lost him for a chunk of time,but still happy to get some points up there. Even with some injuries andabsences, so yeah do weak new team. Let's go allright. That's all right, so murderers rowready for this thing i mean i'd, be pretty dumb. If i didn'tpick our player of the month since he didn't get picked by anthy in front ofme, so spencer quin come on dan. Protect junior ducks. Sorry at the iknow they play the t seven next wednesday, but gonna need a hatti fromspencer at least maybe more in that game. We'll see- and i know someoneelse- pick: jeremy connor. I think that as neil so sorry, but we're going toneed to spencer quint show to have a couple of episodes this week, but quinfourteen points in six games at gals, six assists for powerful goals, onepower place assists and a game winner is that good proecting is only yes, so,let's see, and then victor mel zan believe this or not gus. The rangerssecond leading point, skater picker mells on a defenceman, is the secondlymoins. I o jake murphy is the leading pointtogether with eight points in the mason right behind him with seven points, twogirls, five as six and he looked pretty sturdy. I had the call of two of theirthree games and i like what i see from him so we'll go thou on the back endand goal another. I was toy of between connor and jackson bernard. I went withjackson bernard because this kid is just an absolute machine. I know he'sonly three and three on the season. Don't look at his goals against thethree four one: the apple core play a very running gun style, somewhar kindof like the lumber jacks to last year, where they like to put up a lot ofgoals, and they know bernard's going to see a lot of shots and he's going tomake a lot of saves. So they like to win those big high scoring affairs, buttake a look at his sapere right now. Nine forty so he's saving almost ninetyfive percent of the puck that are coming his way and we get a lot ofpoints for saves so gotta go. I check on enar this week, hopefully gets mesixty a game and then i'll be right, hopefully up in the lawrence smithterritory and then last was certainly not least mr collin callinan, who hadfour goals. Eight assist twelve points. Two goals on the power play: one powerplay, assist no game waters yet, but you did have the hati over the weekend.He had a big weekend. He had three goals against valley and assist againstthe seahawks and assist against the rangers so expecting big things and on to the next victim of the roof. That was me. I finished second lastweek, thanks to kyle patten, had a goal three assist and a short handed point.James mettler, with two assists both were on the power play. The fond coolhanak picked up the first bonus point of the year crew. Just making thisknowledge one of his out there. I got the first one point of the year club ashe won a game against my wizard as lauren likes the study, which is onsome er, your team come on, but i didn't wear the jersey this week, firsttime of three weeks and will rose and who was great going into the show case.But clearly i picked the wrong maryland. Full rich should have picked farel instead, but i still have mypicks for this week. One player that really stood out and you've heard hisname mentioned a few times so far on this podcast was josh runt and each ofthe first two showcase games. He had a goal and assist the first game both of his points forthe power point, including one game winner jeff pointed that out the secondgame he had a power play, assist included his totals the third game.They only be c cost one, nothing in a shootout. So no stats came from thatgame, but he had to shoot out winner. So i'm going to wait on run this week.I was told by a few college coaches that he looked at the best player atthe entire show case, which is which is some pretty high praise in juba'sawesome on defense. Anthony has picked him once so. I'm hoping that i get better results than antony that iguess you could say and that's dominates trow on the point for thevalleys ofyour warriors. They have a...

...busy schedule as well coming up thisweek and jeff. If you didn't pick jackson bernard, i would have so. I gotjeremy connor instead and i think it's funny right, because the and talkingwith adam hole at the show case he's mentioning how the team is in kind of atough spot right now, and it's like okay. Yes, you have an overall recordof four two and one, but your losses are two to one on the dots and who dowant to the wizards two to one in over time to the world like like. These aregunther bounds here or there and they're not lost as their wits andjeremy conners got a hundred and seven five goes: a guest, savage in t h, a d,nine d and tirty, eight se save percent. It's like he's been excellent. Is s thofigure it out, don't fin out the score he now is. This is the first year ithink, with the ty sevens, where gold tending has not been a weak point, butrather their strongest points and point is that here there is. One thing i dowant to bring up is as another thing that adam holy said that something not just for the it sevensbolto, something that he's noticed around the league. There are a lot ofplayers who can play a really good two hundred foot game, not a lot offinishers, and i think that's a big reason. Why we're seeing a lot of teamsthat are winning games, even though they're not putting up goals by thebunches yeah? That's totally fair! That's a really good point to it. Imean copack was very solid, the last couple of years and stuff, but with thejack lanes at tim to board, i mean they put a lot of pucks in the net and sothey're just having a little bit of a switch. But you know coach holy coachcan in there very smart men that have been in the game of hockey for a longtime. I think they'll figure it out down in new jersey for sure for scoringand my utility is the captain of the sea. Lots austin pick speaking ofscoring the seahawks kind of i like this every year, where they kind ofgrind out goals like i'm hoping that for for pick the four games that theyhave scheduled. Not in these schedule warriors wolves, avalanche rangers, i'mhoping he is the guy that sets the pace offense for his team. So i can make upmy point six point deficit and take over the lead again o laura. So, let's talk about how you got intothe lead, as jeff kind of mentioned earlier louis joseph going on that youa goal and an assist for five points. Thomas dempsey, a power play assist forthree points, not nathan. You were probably a big reason why anthony ispicking him this week picked up two victories and got you thirteen point,six points yes and nick graziani who's. Just having a tremendous season for ateam maryland had a two goals, including one power play, and one ofthem was a game winner. So he got to eight points. So a big twenty ninepoint, six swing for you has you in first place and who do you got thisweek? I'm bringing back a couple of familiarfaces in terms of people. I picked our people like we've all picked and i'mbringing back brehan ley from the warriors for my forward. I had himbefore he's been a bit quiet as of late, but i think with the next three gamesthey have coming up in the seahawks and spartans and the rangers i think, it'llbe fun to see him kind of get back out there. I'm looking to see him do somegood things again and get back on the score sheet and on defense, i'm taking ryan brow ducks.I think anthony had him like this past week, so i'm hoping we can put up somepoints for me, especially since we're just talking about the ducks in thepower rankings for quite a while and then jack flashit from walpole. I gotto interview him after game and he he's looking solid in that. So i'm hopingthat continues and i hope- and they can stay on top with him in there and getme some solid points from him and then for my utility. I chose called waters,that's another guy. I got to talk to at the star case and he was looking supersolid and i know a bunch of the coaches were pulling him after the game. Hekind of talk to him, try to sway them over to their school, so clearly he'sone to watch for sure, and i just want to point out withbashir. He was the goal: the net e minder in net for all three games thatwill pull at so tous on in earlier they were the only team to win all three oftheir games of the show case as her was. He was it that for all of them, somaybe we're all done, and we let that goale go to the area. So we'll see that could be my big. A getter is aputter, a picture so that will get us down to the what to watch for a segmentwhich we're going to highlight some games to watch this weekend before wewrap things up. Here's what you watch for this week in me, i show what's thelatch for s presented by hockey tv, the official streaming platform for your hland eh lp action through the two thousand and twenty one, two thousandand twenty two season. There are so many games to to takeplace at both levels that we could all youh know. All four of us could pick...

...different games and liven come close toeach other. So i'm going to start with friday, which is tomorrow october.Eighth, up at the ice ted talara o has the call for avalanche home against theexpress. I know the avalanche have been kind of they've been kind of quiet right. Theylike i say that, but they won both games,that they had the play of the show case right. They beat the cheese they beatthe rough riders and they're still at the top of th. He vision right and wallpauls. The new number one at his walpole respond to being number one,and i think that that's their first game of the week, that's a huge testfor them right right right after this somebody else want to go. I think thewarriors have fat like in general of their next. Three ins are like going tobe some fun ones to watch, because we just put them like pretty decent in thepower rankings and their next three games is the seahawks and we talked toare like somehow making a name for themselvesand like make this kind of rethink a lot of things, and then they have thegame right like day after that, against the partons both of their next threeames are all at help, but i think spartans have been not nobody todiscount either. So that's going to be interesting and then they cap it offwith the rangers. So i think that's three pretty tough teams to kind oftake on, but i'm i'm holding not hope for that. I think i think they lookpretty good. I think i think rhymeth knows what he's doing over there andhe's got a solid group both like his outlet eam and then the pets lookpretty good to so i'm sure they'll do pretty well, but i think ther jiltindefinitely has some tough games ahead, but i'm woking to see them do well. Ithink they'll, i think they'll be okay. That's actually going to be one of myfirst billing games for the week for the year, nel friday, valley versus seacoast, so i'll be there on the call for that and looking forward to it was thatwas that your game to watch your game. But, honestly, i want to see what wewere just talking about earlier: protect versus team maryland. Let's see,yeah protect, we've talked about boll teams, a lot having some good weekendsand some in top five. So i'm not in top five very heavily talked about bothsides. So let's smash heads, let's see who's the best of the best on meselfprotect, rob! Let's go. Let's see, i try you to yeah. You took the wordsright out of my mouth chafferin. That should be a great divisional, matchupand yeah, we'll get to see if ten maryland or protect or for real sesthis year, yeah we'll get a real good idea of whatthese teams are made of, but i anticipate a terrific and i think it'sa back to back they play today and they play again tomorrow. So again, thatshould be a real fun back to bath to watch yeah. So that's your games to watch as whileanthony yes, okay, so there's twenty one total games in the eh shel betweennow and the next podcast, it's kind of interesting how the schedule as i wastelling you know, lauren when we brought her in beginning of to hear theschedule every week is so so weird it's different and and then we have allthese games fitting up to next wednesday. There is a game nextthursday, the fourteenth, which is the next release state for the podcast. Butthen, after that, every teams next game is part of the next show case. I know there's a weekend in between, butit really does feel like we're going back to back week as with back to back,show cases drink your by steel, gang jabot, a rigthis last one. I think i was jokingly referred to by someone as dr sus forsaying, retana blue train so much during the showcases, but there i thinki think they're looking pretty good. So i think those are some teams to watchas well. So were you saying that because the first show case was hostedby the blue train and the second showcase moste by the red train, you could hol, you could be in the hostof the show case and end up being really terrible, so it just kind ofhappened that they end up being pretty good. So we'll see if ole poles up tothat when the host yes well and i'm going to say this a get on next bestpodcast, but for those that are listening closely now and they'replanning to come to that wall, pole showcase and are playing the come inparticular on that sunday, the seventeenth, the patriots play that day.Also people need to remember that it's up to get to rob an arena when thepatriots play but i'll say it again next week, what adjusted to say. Yes, i have the o. No, i have a newdecoration behind me and no one noticed it till now. Did you see it now over?My shoulder is that a beautiful that's got to hangout when it's great it was taken away from one jr, one, roar and yes. Well,it's funny because i asked the coaches multiple times to bring the trophies,and i only had to ask two guys: i had to ask rich to bring the h lchampionship trophy and the e h, l p, regular season that sure why youstillhad that one, the avalanche...

...actually won that last year, and iasked i asked adam holy to bring the eh l regular season championship and theeh l ptf playoff chakes of trophy, but i got two of the four behind me, so ineed to put some new in a lock to the hotel at they're like oh, you want totrokin did my name. My name is on it already, so igot to put the new names on it. That's why i put them back, but that will doit for this. This week's podcast. Obviously a lot of big games coming upat both levels and, as you mentioned a few times, one reek from now willprobably be resetting the power. Any thing is completely again and both theehlme so enjoy the game to we on guys, good see everyone there, thanks for listening to the show, learnmore at eastern hockey league dot, org and follow us on facebook, twitter,instagram and you to also be sure to subscribe and get notified.
