The other thing to note is that the Whale don't play for another couple of days which is why, I am guessing, both he and Mashinter are up to practice with the team.

Good point about the schedule.

I dont disagree with you at all B - I'm just deducing from everything ive gathered from the team and Torts - they've given him all the direction he needs - its time for him to work it out for himself. It will come, but at this point you have to be careful with the mental aspect of his game.

I really saw some good things from him in Boston positionally. Its obvious hes really trying to make that part of his game instinctual before he start turning on the jets. I think the only way that comes is if hes in games.
