Are joined by not only the the beard lists Randy but the the hit list Randy how -- -- It starts that he's wearing shorts so it makes you really don't know. Yeah you gotta go higher. How high can go back look at those legs legs and ready on ideally everybody has legs of that inning Ginobili they play I don't -- -- but Manuel put it on the bike and I'm comfortable in my own skin -- Cliff yeah I was in your stick myself I'm very comfortable -- -- -- go to radio -- -- I'm very good it's never a bad time to talk about hockey and right here in the middle of August it's it's just hockey all around us have Augustin Doug Wilson is still gonna get something to do on the third day of July like before. America's birthday pulled off a huge trade -- wanna get to you about Brett had a kid -- -- by the way right off the the number agency its outlook country club. Restaurant I don't this round nobody I don't right around young -- If I had probably don't like if not I think vote today. But tell me about Davis signing today of thought Colin White. Even white left and I liked it quite a lot of tally -- a they. He wears it -- -- -- -- -- -- Red -- like Colin White what kind of the players -- going to be for the -- fly. Think he'll call once gonna bring that experience got -- eleven playoff games experience is once -- cup. And I think. -- what He brings is a guy that. He always played an -- big games He brings that -- to the game He brings -- -- -- that maybe you look at nick Wally losing him to go to Sweden you get here you replace him with white. A guy that has that a playoff experience like. Like a guy like nick Wally but we look at the abrasive this which she plays the game quite I like the fact that they brought him in the really. Sure if that's 56 guys in your heart of their lineup. Yeah which you've got now basically is. At least at this point going into training camp camp you've got. Eight wanna fight contenders for essentially what is going to be six maybe seven spots on the Sharks offense and that's not even including. You know who may Immersion training camp photo Worcester. Or who might still be signed or -- invited as a free agency got a real good for. A defenseman now -- competing for jobs and I mean let's face it that's one of the areas of Sharks knew they had to get better at after being eliminated in the playoffs last year that was on their blue line and I think they're gonna have a better blue line this year. Brent burns and Jim Vandermeer have been added you lose why you bring in a new life Greg Maddux today on the website CS and very deck out of since this is the best group of blue liners the Sharks have ever had you been with the franchise almost from the very start Randy would you say it is it is the best group of the blue liners this team has ever -- it's just. Might -- -- -- -- we we've had some good defenseman in here in the past Gary -- who got -- been elected to the hockey hall of fame the US hockey elevate yesterday. An outstanding defenseman but by the time the Sharks got him I think He was near the end of his career I I think ray is probably right this a very deep group you -- You know one and -- Dan Boyle and Brent Burns I mean those are just two top notch NHL defenseman we see what market -- classic has turned into. He gets better and better every year and and He could have a huge breakthrough year now me. This coming season. Douglas Murray besides. You added some other pieces in the past season numbers say young Justin -- may break through and make the lineup this year than the other people like Colin White Jim Vandermeer who were. Added in the offseason as well it's got the opportunity to be a very very good group. And certainly something to charge said targeted obviously in the offseason if you'd told me. Going into the summer the Doug Wilson was going to. Get a top notch defenseman like Brent Burns I mean we're talking -- not Nicklas Lidstrom Delaware but that's next tier then next tier defenseman. There's -- go to the player Brett I absolutely he's a guy can play that's point five -- 46 range in the course of the game we're damn well He obviously could play those minutes in the years past. I'd like to see him play last this year let him play around -- -- your range. -- Brent Burns the ability to play that point five point six minute range. Where He can really carry a lot of the play. -- San Jose Sharks especially on those big minutes this big minutes at the end of the game when you need a guy that skates away Byrnes does the size of red -- could play against any other. -- lineup in the league for that matter he's a great pick up like He just said. Grady who thought that they get picked up -- -- -- Brent Burns in the course of the summer. It can really don't give us an acute you wish they lost they're they're getting a guy that's number one guy for the next five years on this organization this team. What and not to disparage Danny Heatley either but I think you know to finish what I was gonna say is that if you -- told me Doug Wilson was waiting -- able to get a Brent burns and at the same time. Rid themselves of a contract. That was a bit of an albatross I mean it was a problem. -- your highest paid player. Who just wasn't getting you the production especially come playoff time. That you need from that dollar value players nothing against Danny Heatley is a terrific guy. But hey He just wasn't getting it done in the in the key moments be it injury or situation or whatever so for Doug Wilson to pull off. You mean those two moves yeah you know moving the contract which we all thought it was going to be. Immovable Villa and get a Brett burns in the process say hi to me it's tremendous I don't know obviously was hurt urges at that point in his career but He was not the -- -- player we saw earlier in his career.
The 40 year old Nicklas Lidstrom led the Red Wings with over 27 minutes of ice time.
and faceoff situation and also just. Importance of Nicklas Lidstrom come back here. Well obviously did nick hasn't told ..... follow up to that Mike. I'm assuming that you think Lidstrom still has a lot left to give to this team well I think
the summer the Doug Wilson was going to. Get a top notch defenseman like Brent Burns I mean we're talking not Nicklas Lidstrom Delaware but that's next tier then next tier defenseman. There's go to the player Brett I absolutely he's
Finished right there. third goal of the postseason in the Sharks lead is cut now it's 21 later in the second. Nicklas Lidstrom look at it try equalized this game. Anti Niemi stops and a lot of post reported 38 saves toward the end result would
keep your system with her work. Huge for us. Forward. Timlin. Look good is there anyone you can drive and then my team Lidstrom worker he's things. Yeah okay come through today go way back in Buffalo. Ago you know he's more yesterday threw just
When he squat Mondays so. And then wanted to get stronger in those well going against the tackle. You know you need to Lidstrom . And I wanted to be it would have this welcome. Get those big guys off. Opposable. You know this this let's go let
this game. Your message to anybody better he's seen so well there's some pretty good to definitely an issue whoever nick Lidstrom was for the guys that. Better are very capable defenders went for young team and at his age. He is you very detailed. Defenseman
coaches to his arm Mark Hughes just his quotes are. I just a question it's easy to talk. He has a lot of qualities. Probably Lidstrom possessed. Professionalism and walks in the door. Comes to get better personally but he also you teams. It takes care of
First meeting of the season for straight scoreless Lidstrom shoots it off the end boards Zetterberg Darren gets rebound ..... s. Yeah you know what happened earlier on this play is Lidstrom came in to pinch hit into the pocket and Joseph short notice
Vancouver and you know it's nice to actually on the road. You. Check. Him out. No I just thought I got an opportunity in the Lidstrom and Zetterberg last year. Through an equality in and I I think teachers players class players that were mussina saw at the
very. sick but I'm Deanna. That would tie the game. At that read. Later that period. It's a better Back to Nicklas Lidstrom . Lives with the shot Tomas Holmstrom with green and it's it's it's been the Sharks allowed three goals and
Patrick Marleau not hard enough along the boards not hard enough on his man's gotta make sure he does a better job. And Lidstrom with the game winning goal of winning just stay alive as they win their second consecutive 43 game despite being outshot forty
Mike Babcock and his players are convinced they are not out of the series with the Sharks.
s gonna be the ageless wonder nick Lidstrom both slaps some scores to go. Jack ..... board on the way up the guys. Nick Lidstrom doesn't get everybody just drive to the hole but I'd nice play by Lidstrom and then this is just a whole other
always on the power play in a flurry of shots we. With a couple of saves but then blood there from Zetterberg. And Nicklas Lidstrom and that is Zetterberg just they things happen right there are coming down the slot between. The legs but Zetterberg
Last. It is can you explain Detroit's system that allows veterans to excel like it draft guys like Datsyuk Zetterberg Lidstrom . And mr. I think you'll be okay let me explain their system they got great players. They do what they've been very successful
would billboard the other political goal that it's partly that those guys don't. the second period it was scored nick Lidstrom shot blocking but the net but. And where they're the attack on TV every 30% to Got caught with just following look at the
level got to pick your brain a little bit and you had your game try to do. Into the stars on ice the NHL all star game. Team Lidstrom beats teams all eleventh and Dan Boyle the only shark representative in this game he had three shots in an assist. Will now
game. A lot of the American national anthem by. is on Clay Aiken. It party. All want to move to Florida on the ice. the Lidstrom you know that is like. He. Get picked up big lift undrafted. Nickel of the names that the captain. Speaking came bat him
Seventeenth in the fantasy style draft by captain Eric stall. All of the Carolina her. I'll walk on the other side nick Lidstrom was using his squad he ends up what. Stamp goes and city new whilst all had that his own wonderful McCain's ward Yeltsin
the net and you know this is good game with big men with big stakes it's gonna happen to Detroit tonight that planning NHL Lidstrom of the slap shot from the point tipped in by Tomas Holstrom. One nothing Detroit that told them eight for the season later

fortunate the puck came right over to jumble but sometimes you make your breaks. You know the series is gone our way you look at Lidstrom with the broken stick in game three they missed the net we get to two on one but. You've got to keep playing and eventually
wood's stuff that that they know that doesn't mean it's almost time to think partly Africa. The backwards. Sometimes Lidstrom holes it was as incentive But we've played there before and it's yeah it's it's. This here. I think after her right
