Then I remember, well, this guy made it to the NHL so his competitive spirit is probably through the roof and it kills him to not be playing most nights. But who knows.
He'll likely be able to find a gig somewhere in the NHL, or at the very least the AHL, next season, where he can again try to prove that he belongs at the NHL level. But right now, this guys living my dream!
Also, this from practice today:

Lines, keeping in mind no Boyle or Stepan: Clowe-Brassard-Nash, Pyatt-Richards-Zuccarello, Hagelin-Powe-Callahan/Asham. Doesn't mean much.
Doesn't mean much? LOL. Our beat writers, let me tell ya.
Pretty clear to me that opening the game against Florida the lines will be...
Clowe - Brass - Nash
Hagelin - Stepan - Callahan
Boyle (if healthy) - Richards - Zuccarello
Pyatt - Powe - Asham
But nah, our beat writers can't fathom that some people are just place holders for others when they aren't skating at practice.
WHEN IN ALL REALITY it should be:
Nash - Stepan - Zuccarello
Hagelin - Brassard - Callahan
Clowe - Richards - Boyle
Pyatt/Haley - Powe - Asham
It doesn't mean much because the lines will be jumbled at least 5 times during the game and you know it.
