Sure, where is that? 220? 210? 200? 190? Can't answer that. As far as immaterial, you did bring up Brassard as a comparative. Only followed your queue.

I'm sure you've already seen it, it might even be in this thread.

This summer Im going to work twice as hard as Ive ever worked before, to be in the shape I need to be in, Atkinson said. I have a pretty good idea now of what it takes to play games in this league, but I want to make this team out of training camp next year and be an impact player.

I am not, in the least, concerned about Atkinson. He may make some mistakes along the way, but he'll learn quickly. If everyone had his mentality, on this team, we would be in the playoffs. Not seeing if we pick #1 or not.
