On the Cheechoo note, have you been able to watch any OKC games? Wondering how Cheechoo's doing; his numbers look pretty good so far.
I've seen part of two games...hardly enough to form an educated opinion but from what I saw he didn't look all the different from last season.
The problem with most people is they equate speed for skating ability. Cheechoo at his best was "below average" for speed, but he's one of the best skaters I've ever seen because you just can't knock the guy over. Last season I saw guys literally bounce off him trying to check him.
