Thing to remember with our young guys is just how young they are. Philips started the season as a 19 year old, living 40 hours from home in a foreign country on his own--cant even go in a restaurant and buy a beer, lol.

Bulmer, from Western Canada to Houston Texas, a totally different world, the Euros like Larrson from Europe to the US, big cultural shock. Agreed some adapt quicker and easier than others, thats why the AHL is such a great place for all our young guys to develop to both on-ice play and off ice issues.

Not suprising that Zucker has adjusted easier. Not withstanding the fact he is a great player but he is American from Las Vegas I think and had the opportunity to play 6 games of pro last year which he obviously used as a springboard to this year.

I think our prospects are progressing nicely, its along path !
