He also indirectly admitted that he should take more rest time in last off-season as he did because of number of games he played in last two years (over 200 games). You could read that also that he should join Mora at least few weeks later as he did.

So this year he took more rest time after end of the season, he was much less disturbed by local media and by different events and he believe he did very well in preparation time. He took less time on ice and more time on tracks and in fitness.

I do believe this season he'll be again old himself.
Thanks - good to know.
