Well a very what you -- it here at you know official I -- we'll have more on this. What I was thinking but. -- actually on Saturday said that he was around -- that is -- to -- -- in. On don't hate don't you hate getting a -- like that from the bus right. Yes as an adult -- Driscoll I wasn't playing good to -- yet what exactly did get better. And and Australia. Like. I figured he wouldn't Bachmann is not Monday not yet. Well we're not like I don't that is in effort on actually fare well in the last month and had not yet yet but it -- well what does. About salt hop -- -- prepared or mentally. I'm still what do you do you go in the office in and then he's kind of like what did he beat around the bush is ZZQ are not at all all. How's the life -- highs. I was -- wow this weather is seven you're gonna get to decide on whether a -- is it like just flat out steal later. -- -- -- -- to sit still that -- we're talking about her at all or buy them that well be that there that is like career a well. It was a good music and let people -- in seven years ago. We all had a really good relationship of they've been nothing but amazing to be here at all and I've been -- so I respect the fact that you know I. But the -- -- a -- -- -- -- that normally doesn't get a face to face meeting in optimum factual that those. Really. Really classic epic on a bit part in your head up before free agency was our -- -- that popular in that -- It's. -- -- -- -- -- Well I I think it shows the respect that they have for you and I you know. Did did do you believe that you know went because you've talked to Peter surely about this the do you believe that they are that he. Kind of feels like there's no rule fur a for a goon. In in today's NHL. Now there. I'm not a war against the computer but the same publication with everybody here at meetings before. Yeah press conference and I think. And I could -- -- -- politician that was very similar but in our conversation we've all talked about how we don't think. At least trying to that would eventually but not gone yet and not. Do we let -- that immediate circuit -- got it up guys he's out of here. But. I thought a lot but that's because obviously that -- the conversation I was urged that one of those it could occur at different context. Let the league has he -- -- turning away from. It is these sites but that the cup. Where I. And yet Peter McGrath of the three years away the great. And you're out a couple of years and it appears well but -- perfect for the ya ya happy but it -- buildings here. I've folic. Our work really hard the last fifteen years become more than just think what an actual -- goes. Put escaped on line besides somebody sight -- and it goes back to help her succeed and I think that's. Now and I think it. Really worked hard a more complete player I can. I can bring. A pick up the table and other music is able to -- other than just people basically. That kind of overshadowed everything else that Java. I guess the -- part of it for everyone else. I'd like that I've been able to play problem -- -- better or liability the last five years. Yeah. It it interest from other teams. Too early I mean I've found out about this throughout. -- as -- -- yesterday in that chamber all the boats and 45. Pick up anniversary prep recruit -- in the past we get public. -- -- -- I thought I was pretty busy yesterday. Don't try to get back everybody that attacked -- in. I'd really bought it in Chester and I thought -- actually do it right after Peterson needed to adopt a topic that. I'm sure he'll be calling it better to cultivate these earn a paycheck. What they're. Of all political interest and we can find -- -- that. But that. Is is there I think fans do. You know we all wanna believe that you know that is that the loyalty lives on -- -- is there any team that you wouldn't play for I mean. Did I hear your and here's. That that would I've had a conversation also closely with a bat up top. Dabble in it happened and it. It really it -- it -- part. Through literally wrap around. Look a lot exceptional leader you know on I'm excited about -- I didn't like where -- gonna adopt a don't know about them open and it's somewhere you know in the like really like. Like Montreal. And it so now if let's say you go to let's not say Montreal let's go to Calgary -- where wherever you go. Yeah and ye -- come back. Kuo who would you not want to fight and steal -- At the fault but I don't -- get beat up any. It doesn't -- Well like humid here. They came. Very -- Milosevic years. Thought about it I figured out -- yeah he's -- in the face it it's a completely opposite of you know it'll get your -- be about. -- be it will be different it's not going to be easy but. The other part of the business we we but at least we -- -- -- -- on the job without so that was. Another terrible part of that you have a lot of -- -- -- -- but you know we shall sign up for. John Horton is our guest than the Bruins have decided to. To part ways with him and he becomes. I'm restricted restricted free agent on July 1 in any mentioned. You know this city what is in your experience. Different if anything about Boston about playing for the Boston Bruins. All -- -- -- -- called me. On July 1 2007. You know I had a few scenes that were actually backed down and you try to make a decision I've never been the law that they kicked in and equitable want -- afternoon and then hit the train back -- to the -- Added no one person on the team here you know camp and it does look in the cities. Sort of built for a guy like -- and I think -- -- -- excuse. Percent along those lines of state he could have been any more understated it. It's amazing. How well people -- me here all college. People. Appreciate hockey at the kind of appreciate how guys -- in that town is so. Eight I could out of that are that last seven years it was -- -- -- very -- about beyond it in. Apocalyptic and economical pitcher to win like that that is what we're quite cup I get to do. It all. There's. A lot of a lot of things that happen around here that I just you know you can't put. Price he can't if it was an amazing amazing experience very very fortunate that they gave him the chance to do those off here. Do you think there were some text messages this morning asking so I'll -- this authority. -- we don't doubt about -- yes you're right it's after liner the online music really you -- -- listening to those -- -- listening to the stream appreciate -- -- -- water and had nothing to do -- cracked. Yes. Lovie authority well I think people want and they wanna find a reason they're like I can't there's you know I mean it's like -- Gibbs -- their girlfriend Brooke you're. There there's -- girlfriend walked out and they're trying to. They're searching batters to. Yeah that one and only sees what -- she's hammering on the side know they wanna go. Geez I wonder what was that Tom I didn't get -- good birthday present and -- -- six months ago. Now why you know so none of. Except now I hear -- What they they got guidance artists that are ready to play they gotta -- for the or else they're probably gonna. He examined. And I just again brought a better question for Peter but I don't look like I got the book has a knock on the -- there ready -- it might not be the same. Flawlessly it. They're ready to play they -- make rose noticeable when parents you know they had. Kruger and art and everybody loved and yet he's still unbelievable -- NATO defense and if -- good spread -- this year and a great leader but. And what's quality got to make room for some guys coming up let the business so -- I think that our. What about from a leadership perspective because that to me that's -- really bothers me about this is that I think. And and I sent you a kiss ass -- yesterday so you know that I think this but I think that you know from the veteran leadership perspective. That was a big part of what you did here -- do you feel like there are guys that can step into that role. Yeah there's. At least they have a lot few years. I guess growing to do that losing crouched in the big -- -- -- -- -- -- Your version -- very tight last seven years. Obviously do the same double oracle tables. And don't go on vacation together as Amber's got a long everything. Great that he. He's really -- the last you know seven years that I -- air I think that.
