It was his time under Maurice that really paid dividends.

Now I hope the season starts on time just so we can take advantage of this momentum he's got...

LOL the British league.

I once saw on the ticker on the bottom of the SkySports news that "former NHL player blah blah blah has signed with team blah blah blah as a player coach." And I was like "dang, player coach? this dude must be good, how have I not heard of him." I looked him up, he played like 70 games in the NHL as a 4th line plug.

And that's good enough to be a player COACH in the British league. Anything less than 2 points a game is a disappointment for AStew, IMO.

Yes, we know it's crap. No need to be a dick about it.

We'll take care of him. Nottingham is a good place to play and a great city to live in.

Indeed. As an American hockey fan living in the UK there is no better city to live in. It's a close as the UK gets to a Hockeytown.

Any word on skinner, Faulk, and welsh signing AHL contracts? Or is that just what skinner has to do? I'll definitely be buying a mini game plan if they sign on for the season. Can't believe they may be playing in the same town where I live!

Sorry, not a shot at the British league, just commenting on AStew's team/league choice... Not exactly the place for him to impress the Canes coaching staff, that's for sure...

They will play there by virtue of their NHL contracts, so they won't have to be signed to an AHL contract. You'll get to see them as long as there is a lockout, but as soon as the NHL plays again, they'll be gone.

2h Dmitry Chesnokov ‏@dchesnokov
#Canes forward Alexander Semin has signed with a Russian lower league team Sokol from his home town of Krasnoyarsk; will play for free.

Dmitry Chesnokov ‏@dchesnokov
Semin told SovSport the reason he signed to play for free is to give back to the club and the city where his career started. #Canes

Didn't even need to sign, they weren't past the games played limit to be waiver eligible and are on two-way contracts so they were assigned to the Checkers along with the rest of the typical AHL crew (sans Bowman surprisingly).

He'll get far more minutes here than he would elsewhere, maybe the Cane's coaching staff want that for all their role players.

More minutes = more well rounded play.

Also I think you'll be dissapointed with his points totals if you expect 2pts per game.

Anyway I came to this board to ask about how he plays, so what is his game like

As far as the NHL is concerned, he's a "power" forward that isn't powerful enough to play a power game or skilled enough to play a skilled game. Has size but doesn't use it. Hopefully playing top line-ish minutes will help him to round out the power part of his game and learn to take some contact, because some size and power from the fourth line would be much appreciated on this roster. Truly not sure of the British style of play, whether or not it's more power and speed focused like the NHL or more creativity and open-ice focused like some of the other European leagues, but he could definitely stand to learn to put his body on the line.

There is no 'generic' British style of play, the two main leagues over here (the higher EIHL and lower tier EPL) have pretty different styles of play within them which is pretty much a result of their import rules/limits.

The EIHL allows up to 11 imports from anywhere, which means that most imports are from North America, giving the EIHL a much more physical, NA-style of play than other European leagues. The EPL on the other hand only allows (if memory serves me) three imports per team and they have to be European passport holders. This reliance on Brits means the EPL is generally less skilled and because of the Euro influence, less physical.

This said though, in my experience, British players are coached to a far more NA-style of play during development and given the large amount of imports who play that game in this county's top league their influence further moulds the Brits game.

If I were going to compare the EIHL to an NA league I'd say it is of a similar level to CHL or ECHL. The EPL on the other hand is probably more comparable to say the SPHL in quality.

Anthony Stewart arrived today, here he is in his new home jersey.



Hopefully he'll be fit to play this Saturday in the Nottingham vs Sheffield game, pretty much the biggest rivalry in the British game.

So--does AStew get to be the Sheriff? And will he tweet with an accent now?
