Is fighting and infighting in the game. You're not going to change as a secretary for awhile but in terms of buffalo having two guys like that. After the game the game has changed where you can't necessarily carry. A guy because he's going. Can't carry Gomes eminently. You can carry a guy that did they can fight Dennis Dennis skill as well what shot the shot and I don't know I don't know what he's just now customs bureau. Now but I'm talking -- -- -- like we had here a few years ago and and I liked watching them fight but that's pretty much all he did Cold War. And then he had bounced right. -- did it was quite of these guys right now in the league you have some skill you can throw home up -- on at least a fourth line right. Which -- getting right. As some of those guys go up and down. That Europe for the big leagues and have their back they send it back down and they do specifically for for is that their -- There was some bad blood here if you remember yes.

Pick it up with Tom in New York what's up to be. A spot proper spot bartered out is PK -- get laid out Montreal yet. Anyway. I -- -- -- -- a lot but I got a lot besides didn't you know. It's been living gate. Product that you meet. Then any other team in sport that we now based already haven't been out that you might have Richard at a chart that that -- sure but I mean you that -- -- -- pretty liberal on a guy on Earth Day. It's an Allah is not an element of the game element of the NHL game element is that it's -- element on you know it's our hockey. It's it's. NHL. Part of the editor David Hartley and it's hard NHL that's it. It. I think it doesn't part of college. As a part of the college game absolutely not. -- school no way. So it's it's NHL creation. This I think at that point it's all so. I think it -- break I think those guys got there there. Are definitely -- -- lap but then I think there. I think they experienced enough and I think they're. Strong guys that we talked about concussions and hit nowadays that needs. To stop that stop -- -- any others. Yeah but the fight is a little bit different guys in their -- they did not planted solidly. On the on the on the ground. Of those punctured -- only now.

Of the game or sometimes slightly outside the legal elements of the game here's adamant lol what's up Adam. They can't vote on animals. Equipment into the apple right now hockey team keeping the guys that -- -- early cheap shot and you know goon tactics. Who -- it's eight. He earned it by again but now I know he's he's he's. On.
