We close out the show with the best sound of the day.
We discuss where the Bruins go from here, and whether or not those plans should include Claude Julien.

[0:03:04] ... trade at least three others you may not be able to trade. Zdeno Chara Dennis Seidenberg David great T detector disagrees me with me about the crate she thinks it will wedeman. He needs hip surgery he played hurt any did by the way the last 20/20 five games of the season. You know he needs that surgery is going to be great next year. Eagle backed that leadership void on the esteem he's supposed to be one of the leaders on the team one of the quote unquote quiet leaders on the team. And I'm not saying that it's easy to replace them. I wanna change the culture of this franchise. I party said I would try to trade Zdeno Chara may not be possible.

[0:08:12] ... say in you don't. Use you still haven't given credit to the Baltimore Orioles. The reason is six and I'll meant the reason they always. Play beyond their talent they always well. Until they get tired of pocket that he he has itself plate does Wear but he still Wear out there but but until we get tired of him. Whatever their talent level is so let's say that this is their best thing to say about a manager. If the Baltimore Orioles have 82 when talent. Buck Showalter will give me 87 or 88 when they got 88 when talent of 9293 that's just ...
