One or two inches inside the post and have it may no noises that finds the net. Are her biggest -- right. Yes so -- -- out there have been even better thing wire. You can hit the water books that they'll work yet -- I was -- three feel -- first in twenty some games. When I had those two back to back I think -- under control and it's all sort of. I heard I think it was Jack it was a -- -- and any Berkeley saying that you have drawn the most penalties. I guess on the team may be among the league leaders is that something.

Should we assume -- everything he has said to the members of the media he has said by a factor of five. To port that fair to say it. Yes it is not. -- a coach and a try to deliver messages that we -- so cold weather first that your. And what would be your or -- reaction when you hear the coach not only -- you -- talked to you were pull you aside but in practice or after practice. Then go -- speak to the median say this guy's got to play better we expect more out of him is that issue off. Does that bear issue does it motivate you or something else. Probably different and talked -- be the coach. -- I don't know how many guys is there's include. -- -- so that they're not that is going to immediate -- that it that it does. -- steer clear that so it is immune from the poster for. Did you learn anything about the Rangers from 24/7 that you didn't know about before you start watching that show. -- Number I really don't think so I mean they're they're really good team I think that.
