Article On Skrlac...Looks Like Our Future Enforcer

I received an email from "The Source" whom I haven't spoken to in like...gees...2+ months.

Anyhow, he didn't say much, but he did forward me an sub-article (from where I have no clue...somewhere in Europe I guess) and it was on Rob Skrlac.

An interesting read nonetheless. See it below:

Skrlac gets the nod, makes a statement.

In the Devils fourth preseason game last night, Rob Skrlac was called in the make the Flyers aware of what will to happen to them in the future should they continue their vicious ways.

Donald Brashear, who has been making the Devils pay early in the preseason with his fists, sat out of last night's game against the Devils. Lucky for him, he did.

The Devils played their upcoming super heavyweight, Rob Skrlac. Standing at 6'6" and 250 pounds, he wasted little time in annihilating Flyers backup enforcer, Todd Fedoruk. Many Flyers players watched wide-eyed on the bench, as their teammate take a horrific pounding at the hands of the man comically nicknamed, "Skrlac the Destroyer."

"When Coach Burns told me to make a statement tonight, I knew what he met." Said Skrlac after last night's game. "I know my role and it isn't to score goals. Its to keep the opponent in line."

With the departure of Jim Mckenzie to Nashville, coupled with Turner Stevenson out for a groin injury and possibly for a while, the Devils are without a legitimate heavyweight. Although Skrlac knows he'll only be needed for Divisional "Ice Wars," he's more than happy to know he'll be needed this season with the Devils.

"If they (opponents) keep it clean, good for the game and my teammates. If they decide not to, well, that works for me too," holding up his fist which resembles that of a peewee league sized football.

"The choice is theirs, either way, I'll be happy to play!"
