The inaugural edition of chirping was that your horse here and who needs no introduction -- Has impressed you on your name smoke in your parents did you. I actually haven't asked them. -- have some -- -- my -- my dad's name is Chad CH CT my brother's name is Johnson. JDS -- and Logan there weren't too many when I was on top but. -- couple years I've I've got a much intensive learning loads of them seems like the name is a spot on and that's a pretty popular album I was younger there aren't too many kids with my name. That's your name your nickname everybody called your coach and right now -- when you kind of came around more and I try to -- the grassroots thing -- Loko has home insurer -- You don't like it very much you -- like coach and what He wanted to stick with coach exists. It's been my nickname for -- -- various things as a sports team. It's just that once called me and my buddies from back home. Razor and that -- Boswell quote they call it Jason apartment and like that and I think all the named after a woman's clothes and I'm I'm. But it's which is just -- -- this tiniest. For some players aren't -- some that I think review a lot of -- you. Who is the most influential person. You insane life my pants. They've done so much from Ellicott. Analyzed and they are working. They've been through -- through a lot -- my brother and I worked so hard to get -- your pocket today and absorbed a couple of jobs and to pay fair. For our hockey -- for our sports school and all that stuff. I. We'll -- them and I'm there I look at. Guy like you who's a dedicated to his job obviously you're traveling happening here you're gone you're training. So much of -- work demands placed on your life. What's the social life like for hockey player do you find it tough to -- keep some good friends around to make time for people and I just imagine that if somebody's. That's stuff. For me I went away from home since I was sixteen. Successor from London Ontario. And I've only capped a couple close friends it's so hard to keep in touch with that wrong when you have hockey school at different places. I mean you know went back and your hometown for a couple months in the summer you know -- it's everyone's so. I've got a good group of us six or seven really tight friends that but I still talk to. You know I try and talked as much they can't make it a potentially. -- -- tough to keep relationships going -- defense that is all the time. This is point line and I'm asking the question which may be weird but. What is it like to talk to the media. You know I have to be careful about the things you say at the same time it's so difficult because I I look at and say. What if somebody was asking me about my job my personal life my injury in this and that. People need maybe realizing just how tough it is how delicate you guys have to be. Good and -- sometimes how tough is it you know it's skating and competing it's one thing but dealing with questions -- that room is -- tough. It is tough that's something I yeah I think you get better you get older. I ancestor and a six game plan -- -- -- as a person I talked to some of them again. I wasn't very got a shot. I'm usually better at it now I think I'm better at obviously I shy person and open upset. Hey guys pretty well I mean I have to be honest but we can't -- can't cross that line it makes obviously today. I think I've gotten decent but of the better. All right two more things the first in what can you say about your head coach Tom Holland and the two years and I've been here a different team. You talk about saying all the right things it seems like He always says that cost media what is He honestly life in the moment when he's delivering a message. -- -- I think one thing about focuses any respect from the players not something Todd certainly has done. When He talks -- this -- and we expect. The systems. They respect us rules this -- stuff like that. He's a fiery coach He loves the way He wants to win every night. That's something that says that He gave -- and Dallas well. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Outside in hot spots as well the other but we'll just a quick stuff so I'm glad to the -- -- very Cogent and hopefully isn't as much. Lastly this let's take a look at between here and you've got. This I don't think there was something unique feel its older that you know what you do -- preparing the same language you tape yet and -- at -- -- -- here what exactly is going -- A -- why do you do -- white. In the top one. Well first -- to wait tape then Kyoto. Better -- again and -- -- on the open that's something I've done for about four years as dusty and post an element played an eighteen excellent. And -- -- you said it's this latest thing is as lax but it's. It's avoid tape and it's tougher for the -- this game. The pocket -- spot and it anyway so it kind of players that there are a little bit -- and do it nice beautiful play. Ballots is that I -- pretty lazy in this -- even I topics the puck right off the top here play it just on the bottom. Stuck with -- -- a couple of years now I'm not -- to pucks dividends for the exact sort of that's what makes -- -- yeah. And they get down so -- this big man -- slipped back a strong. And at the -- especially. A couple of light gallop through eleventh -- -- -- -- which one feels about that. They can't usually can't have logos on them what was happening at stake and in fact that. But that's what this does not -- Then -- it would be somewhat easier to you simply spray. Sprain on there. There was a bad day definitely you like this team the puck as it makes a stick on us and helps the tapes at -- just like wow excellent. That's really in the various cities I'd -- it's. Whatever works right don't think it's right. Outlasting you'll you'll do that segment again this year Vegas and California native. Oh maybe got to -- next game okay all right well -- in the right questions we will do more chirping with -- that's low and a really. -- --
