Keep cracking those cliche, lame one-liners, I'm sure it'll really motivate.

I'm not at all PC but people on this board really don't seem to understand substance abuse. Just be glad you'll never know.

Fact is, fans were prejudice against Ozolinsh (and some of it is understandable in the wake of Fleury and Stevens) when he came here. I'm sure he was conscious of that and it impacted his game. It was very unfair to blame Ozo for the post-season failure (which was precipitated specifically by poor goaltending and lack of offense).

The more we bash this guy, the worse his play will be. We should at least learn from the Poti-fiasco and make the guy feel welcome in NY.
