I understand that some of his teammates may think he quit on them and he's not mentally tough. But give the guy a break. He's 20!

Note: This wasn't directed at any poster, just the overall feeling toward Legein by many CBJ fans.
This. He's kind of become a mental boom-or-bust in my eyes - either the experience is going to make him near-invincible, or we'd already lost him from the start. While I can understand folks who are quick to assume the latter, I refuse to give up on the possibility of the former.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
