Ive been a big fan of MAB ever since he came out of the blue and actually played some regular season games for us (which some thought would be it for his NHL carrier). He looks like a keeper. (man, did he ever tear up the QMJHL, how did he not get drafted??)
It shows how pathetic teams are that they wouldn't draft a kid who sets QMJHL records for goals scored by a Dman. I mean even in the ninth bloody round!!!!!! But I think Semi did damn good considering he'd have to be a bit rusty not playing in a few weeks, the nerves of playing first game of the year, and on top of all that having to play against the Avs lineup.
