I'm glad he's come in with the kind of attitude and skill that we knew he was capable of, coming from the wasteland, we had little to go on but 'hes getting out of Columbus'.

Play him 18 to 20 minutes a game ! Reduce Richard's role, he was done by the third period, the coaches must be seeing it.
I like how physical he has been. I was NOT expecting that. I mean, he threw a check every now and then with Columbus, but he is finishing every single check here. Really impressive. Looks like Torts has him playing a bit more hard-nosed.

I do hope that his health holds up, though, playing that way.
