At the beginning of the year he was playing like he did his entire career, honestly it was just without much structure. He got in Lavs doghouse a bit and he told Nik he had to work hard. Nik DID and it shows in his play over the last month and a half. He's playing much more responsible in all 3 zones and also without the puck. I give him a lot of credit. He's always had the skill and now he's finaly playing a complete game (or as close as anyone would have wanted from him back when he was first drafted).

Personally, I hope that we trade Carle in the off season, promote Mezz to Prongers left partner and resign Nik. Personally I think we are a better team having Walker on the 3rd pairing and Zherdev in the top 9 than we are with Mezz on the 3rd pairing and say Powe or Carcillo in the top 9.
