I went into the game wanting to see for myself how good he really is but kind of got distracted with other events on the ice, such as how the Rangers were dealing with Brashear and then watching the amount of obstruction going on.

But two things stick out. One, the time he got tied up with Kaspar and when Kaspar tried to get his stick out of the blade, Joni reacted with a slash. Not saying anything about how it should have been a penalty because it wasn't much of a slash, just enough of one to make Kaspar know that the kid means business. Two, during one rush, I forget who on Flyers curled near the blue line but one of the first Flyers to cross the blue line was Joni to accept the pass and make a play. At first I was like, who is that with speed and then realized who and was impressed with him jumping into the play.

Anyway, as stated before, it was one game but I like the kid's speed and his grit.
