Hopefully they all know by now that to make it you have to be willing to give 100% and sacrifice your body on occasion....
i have said the pk will be ok not better but fine. i can't believe that people are not giving him credit for helping transform this team. especially in the 05 06 season. all everybody says is they loved his effort. but they are so quick to forget what he did. yes its been said that he blocks shots, provides energy and hits. but he did more than that. jd said he was a future captain that has to count for something.
