Hire some adult sportscasters that have an inkling of knowledge about the game
Like here is the like stuff they are like taking about . it is like a bunch of like kids like being like kids.
Seriously, are you kidding?
OMAR: So if they can find--
SAM CHANG: Omar, [INAUDIBLE] might end up being a wild-card team this year.
OMAR: That's not fair. Like, that's not fair. Like, are you serious? Like--
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Yeah?
OMAR: OK, what-- oh my god. Hold on. Hold on.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: They might be--
SAM CHANG: I did see--
JULIAN MCKENZIE: --healthy by that time too.
SAM CHANG: I did see an ABS fan yesterday be like, let's just throw in the towel and tag for Bedard.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Oh, that's not fair. That's not-- that's not fair at all. That would not be fair.
SAM CHANG: But, I mean, like, if you look at Jared Bednar's press conference this week where he was going through all the injuries, it's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. They have, like--
JULIAN MCKENZIE: And it's been like that since day one of the season.
SAM CHANG: I don't even know who they're icing. Yeah.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Like, Charles Hudon and Alex Galchenyuk are, like, first-line options. Like, that's how bad it is Colorado.
SAM CHANG: Yeah. Yeah.
OMAR: I mean--
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Could you imagine Connor Bedard on, like, second line for the Colorado Avalanche?
OMAR: Oh my gosh.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Just like with that sick release.
OMAR: If-- OK. If Edmonton does, better and Calgary does better, and the Canucks keep winning, they could get into the bot-- man.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Yeah, but, like, also, but, like, you'd have to-- essentially, if Colorado would even think about doing something like that, like, they'd basically have to say, whoever's injured right now, I don't have the full list in front of you.
OMAR: Like, on--
JULIAN MCKENZIE: They'd have to be like, OK, like, dude, you're done for this year and go from there. And also then I have to hope for Anaheim to somehow be a little bit better Chicago to stop sucking, like--
AVRY LEWIS-MCDOUGAL: San Jose?
JULIAN MCKENZIE: There's a lot-- San Jose, there's a lot of-- things that would have to happen for Colorado to-- I mean, then again, we live in a draft-lottery world, right? So.
OMAR: Even if they move up to-- even if they get a top-three pick, like, that's possible because I think one year, didn't Dallas go from, like, 11 to-- no, not 11. No, yeah, yeah, it was 11. Didn't Dallas go from like 11 to 3 or something and then they got on Heiskanen in that year?
JULIAN MCKENZIE: I mean--
OMAR: It was something like--
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Miro Heiskanen's been a pretty good defense for them ever since.
OMAR: Yo. And yeah, so there are McKinnon, Manson, and Bowen Byram on injured reserve, and the land is there in **** still in LTIR. I mean, yeah, they can--
JULIAN MCKENZIE: And he says-- he says Byram and Landeskog are nowhere close, and then he said today that Nichushkin has now re-injured his ankle that he had surgery on, and he's out. No timeline.
OMAR: Yo, man.
SAM CHANG: And Francouz is now-- Francouz is now also injured.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: You know? I mean, I'm not saying the Colorado Avalanche should tank, but I feel-- should we start looking at take awareness in a few weeks with the Colorado Avalanche?
SAM CHANG: They lost to the Coyotes last night.
AVRY LEWIS-MCDOUGALL: They did.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Are we jumping too soon on that?
OMAR: I mean, but, like, if you even think of this year, they have four draft, four picks. They have their first round pick, and they don't have another pick until the fifth round.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: I mean, that again, the Colorado Avalanche are in win now mode. Like, when you're in that mode, you don't necessarily, like--
OMAR: But they won.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: You're like--
OMAR: They won last year. They won last year, though.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Yeah, you want to win again.
OMAR: How's that?
JULIAN MCKENZIE: They could still win again if they're healthy.
OMAR: Yeah, and you can win next year with Connor Bedard.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: That's true.
SAM CHANG: You could win a few more years with Conor Bedard.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: You could win a few more years with Conor Bedard.
OMAR: Three ELC years with Conor Bedard?
SAM CHANG: Three.
