Pretty easily and so I don't know what I can contribute sold its part to do not attempt to corner that yeah. Toward the coaching staff two. The players are so what do you dislike it certainly could create opportunity. And it's gonna be a smooth transition. Towards to go to coaching career from. BC you can let you played for a while in the in the age failure in your sixth professional season. When he got called up to the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2011. Twelve season. What was that experience like for you getting that call and then kind of probably realizing a dream I'm sure. Quite eight it democratic aren't unique yet is that good morning.
