That is absolutely incredible.

Whether Tuebert becomes the next Scott Stevens or just a 3rd pairing shut-down hitter, there is no way I can not possibly like this kid when he makes the team. If he comes and he truly does punish on the ice, he would truly be someone a smart marketing department (ie: not ours) could sell like insane town of ours.

As for the Purcell interview, I like that he seems to have no resentment or hostility about his path to the AHL after being undrafted and now being sent down after being an absolute stud last year. He really is a guy I want the Kings to take their time with because he has a special kind of finesse to his game that few players have. I really don't see too many players, even in the NHL who can sweep the pick with the speed that he can. He deserves top minutes that simply aren't here for him in L.A. at the moment.
