Seriously! Every Thrasher fan was all about welcoming Heatley back with open arms after his "incident" and before the "trade request."
Slava Kozlov had a similar situation in Europe and no one held that over his head when he came here.
Why are there any questions about how to deal with Cormier??? He committed a stupid penalty inside the game. Absolutely stupid play.
Give it a rest folks. If Cormier is our version of Avery, Alex Burrows, Downie, Darcy Tucker, etc., we will cheer him on wildly. And you all know it, and most can't wait!
I want him and Klingberg on the same line!
Theres a difference between "accident" and "injury with purpose of punishing the oppenent".
A more valid comparaison would be during the FA period not so long ago, where I saw some Thrashers fan thinking about taking a chance on Bertuzzi. However, unlike Bert, Cormier is much more younger, therefore have a chance of reform. But there is also a possibility that the incident might affect his Psyche in which, might turn him into Bert no.2 which of course would be ungoood.
For I, I think Cormier is the type of player that you would like to have in your team but hate to play against. if he end up having a career similar to Claude Lemieux, I would be very please with this pick.
