Good point, and that has been one of his biggest issues. It looks a lot better on paper this year, but, well, "on paper" are among the most most evil words in the Blue Jacket fan lexicon.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
