He seemed to have a better work ethic... Hell, he went in corners and actually hit people.... Didn't crush anyone with those hits but he still went in there...
Power skating and one of them Kovalev training tapes and he should be good to start next season strong... lol

His face off performances were a lot better in the playoffs (close to 50%) and with Carbonneau and Muller behind the bench, I expect all Montreal centers to become much more efficient in the circle.
I hope you are right. And while I see the Habs improving this year, if Ribs plays as you think, then the Habs may end up the surprise team in the NHL this season.
