He's been an outstanding offensive player whereever he's played...
Sejna I think will be a bust, simply based on the fact that he's getting all his hype from putting up 2 points per game in NCAA when he's 24-25 years old...Abid was doing this in the QMJHL when he was 19.
Not true. In the offseason he was getting most of the hype because of his one game last year. While it was only one game he showed that he is not out of place in the NHL in that one game (and it didn't hurt that he made Roy look very average on his goal, a goal that Roy called "more than just any old goal"). The hype is greater now because of his performance thus far in the preseason. He was amazing in the 4 day camp tournament the Blues held and has been great so far in the preseason games. He has all but been offcially announced as Doug Weight's left wing because he has been that good.
