I missed the last game and I really hope that Kessy has a better game today, maybe I'll watch today and join you in being ticked at the Kessy trade, I guess we'll have to wait and see. In principle I can see why the trade was made.
Oh I know for sure, but with the Russian players there is the inherited risk with them. You would hope you have some sort of a back up plan in terms of secondary scoring coming in the next couple years outside of the KHL playing Russians.
