You can choose who you want to believe.
The fact that TT had 11 points in 6 games - not 12 - makes me question how much he's paying attention when he can't even get a stat that he quotes correct.

Unfortunately, the NHL channel chose to air hundreds of USA and Canada game reruns rather than show games involving Finland and most of the other teams, so I didn't have the opportunity to actually see TT play other than highlights. One thing that seems appearent though is that TT is one of those effortless skaters that makes it seem like he's not hustling when he actually is - maybe Friedman didn't notice.
