Feaster said it on the radio after his injury. I do, however, enjoy accusations of 'being on the pipe' and 'not watching them play' as if we're somehow not watching the same game. Horak's defensive game is better. It's the reason he was able to stick around for so long on the fourth line instead of being sent down to Abbotsford.

I'd love to see Backlund tear it up. But there's no reason to make excuses for him.
