Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: February 25, 2020 (Pt. 4)

WELCOME BACK WIKI TO YOU LIVE, LET'S GO OUT TO DEREK WHO JOINS US ONLINE ONE HELLO DEREK

HI BOB, IS THAT TRUE? OR NOT? I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE BEGINNING OF WHAT YOU SAID DEREK, REPEAT THAT? YEAH, THE PLAYER, HE — PATRICK MARLOW IS YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT IS GOING TO BE ON THE THIRD LINE, IT WILL BE INTERESTING AT LEAST INTERESTING CONVERSATION, THANKS FOR THE CALL THAT WOULD BE HOW YOU PROCESS WHAT THE KINGS OF THE METROPOLITAN DIVISION DID BECAUSE THEY ALL GOT BETTER THEY ADDED BIG NAMES, I WAS QUITE SURPRISED THAT FLORIDA GAVE UP ON HER CHECK KNOWING THEY GAVE BOB ROSKI $10 MILLION, ONLY TO POINT OUT A THIRD-PLACE A PLAYOFF SPOT IN THE ATLANTA DIVISION IN THE GIVEAWAY REALLY PRODUCTIVE PLAYER TO CAROLINA

MAKES A LITTLE BIT, I TELL YOU, WOULDN'T IT BE IRONIC IF THE PING WOULD LOSE TO THE CAPITALS IN SEVEN GAMES BECAUSE DANIEL STRONG'S, 15 GOALS OR SOMETHING? YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? I WOULD SAY GOING TO WASHINGTON, A STAR FOR HERSHEY BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE HE WILL END UP BUT HOW ABOUT IF THAT DID HAPPEN, HE'S GOT A LOT OF POTENTIAL, YOU JUST GET FIGURE OUT HOW TO PLAY 200 FEET OF HOCKEY, BUT I ALSO THOUGHT PADGETT WAS A GOOD PICKUP, THE ISLANDERS DID NOT LOSE A PLAYER THEY ADDED A GUIDE TO A REALLY GOOD GROUP OF GUYS IN CAROLINA IN ADDITION TO CHURCH CHECK, THEY IMPROVED THEIR LINE WHICH IS NOT GOING TO BE EASY GETTING OUT THE METROPOLITAN WE TALK ABOUT NOT JUST THE METROPOLITAN DIVISION, THE EAST TAMPA AND BOSTON, THEY BOTH MADE MOVES

THEY DID BOTH OF THEM GOT BETTER, TOO SO, YOU LOOK AT IT, IT'S GOING TO BE DIFFICULT TO REALLY NAVIGATE THROUGH THREE HERE'S THE THING THAT COULD HAPPEN, TOO WHOEVER GETS TO THE EAST COULD STILL BE UP, SO WORN DOWN AND HIDE THE END UP LOSING 20 THAT'S INFERIOR TO THEM FROM THE WEST

ONLY ST LOUIS, YOU COULD MAYBE THROW COLORADO AS THEY GET HOT IN THERE THERE ARE NOT THAT MANY TEAMS IN THE WEST THAT I WOULD LOOK AT AS A OKAY, WATCH OUT FOR THEM INSTEAD, THEY ALL RESIDE IN THE EASTERN CONFERENCE I WOULD WITH A NUMBER OF FIVE TEAMS RIGHT NOW THAT ARE, YOU CAN MAKE AN ARGUMENT THEY ALL GET THERE

WHICH BRINGS US REALLY QUICK TO MARCH MADNESS BEFORE I GO HERE TONIGHT, WE SAW SOMETHING VERY INTERESTING DUKE HAD A NINE POINT LEAD OVER WAKE FOREST WITH A MINUTE 15 LEFT AND THEY LOST IN DOUBLE OVERTIME DUKE, THERE IS NO CLEAR-CUT NUMBER, SO LAST NIGHT, WEST VIRGINIA LOOK BAD AGAIN PENN STATE HAS LOST TWO IN A ROW, BUT YOU LOOK OUT WEST YOU SEE GOOD ZYGOTE LOSING, WHO IS GOING TO IN THE NCAA TOURNAMENT? I MEAN, EVERY NIGHT I HAVE A DIFFERENT OPINION OF WHO, I WILL GIVE YOU A GOOD EXAMPLE

LOUIS, RIGHT? LOUISVILLE HAS TO PLAY A CERTAIN GAME IN ORDER TO WIN AS I CAN PLAY THEIR GAME THE WAY THEY WANT, THE STYLE AGAIN THEY WANT TO PLAY, THEY CAN WIN OTHER GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT SIX TIMES IN A ROW, PROBABLY NOT DUKE, TO ME, IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH DEFENSIVELY, AND I THINK THEY STILL HAVE THAT ROOKIE FRESHMAN FACTOR, THERE'S TOO MANY TEAMS WITH TOO MANY FLAWS OF USB IS GOING TO BE A WIDE MARCH MADNESS, THANKS TO PAUL'S EYES

TURN IT THE NIGHT, KDKA SPORTS
