Let's not go too far here. These are the same officials who overlooked Dallas Drake for years. Some guys get away with questionable hits from day one until well after their first big free agent contract. The kid may be fun to watch but let's hold off on bestowing him sainthood.

As far as the people who want to diss him go, I'm enjoying something nice for the press to talk about. Sort of like when the local media and others talked about a kid named Dan Fritsche during the preseason [If Fritsche was Inuit, or Martian or whatever, he would be getting the same press. Would you be talking about him the same way?]. We could be talking about Atlanta losing 2 kids, the CBA, Gaborik's hold out and Zherdev being pressed into service. Would that be more favorable?

Lighten up and enjoy the sport instead of just the guys on your roster. May I suggest Kiel McLeod as an outlet?
