He started off pretty slow, but lately I think he's stepped it up a notch. The players around him are getting used to his tendencies. He scored on a beautiful redirect from Malkin last night, so he actually has 2 goals.

Anyways...I'm not saying it was the wrong thing to do to let Sully go...because the big question mark was 'can he play a full season?' Plus, our prospect list was getting pretty deep, and I think Poile decided it's sink or swim time for a few of these guts.

I think we'll be better off in the long run with the route we took...but I do miss some of what those guys brought to the table.
