Sergei did well, but was not the important peice of our line-up. He didn't rack up the points either, despite doing quite well for a rookie. If indeed he plays way bellow expectations, we'll be able to send him down and re-call a hot player.

O'Byrne is still too green to have a sophomore jinx. He's still learning, and he's in the same situation than Sergei.

As for Price, I don't expect anything less than a good season. He's serious about his career and wants to prove some people wrong after his bellow-par performance in the last playoffs.

As for a meltdown from certain players, I'm not too worried. We have so much depth so I think we're safe. Also, we're not a one man team. We have a few great offensive players, and a few sub-par offensive players. If one line can't do the job for a few nights, another one will take over. That's the beauty of running three offensive line!
A.Kost could have a sophomore jinx and it coulllllllld hurt

PS. Huet the team.. is that a new verb? to let in soft goals in the 3rd?
