I remember him getting critisized on here for over estimating the "new nhl."
Not so sure he changed his mind as much as he is playing the hand he has for the time being. More speed and quickness is on the way in some of the younger guys. He already had Moller and Loktionov in the wings. Recently he went after some bangers in Schenn and Clifford.
Still wouldn't mind seeing Dean inquire with regards to Mason Raymond.
