"I've got to me smarter and recognize and recognize when the guy's head is down," Dumba told the local media on Monday afternoon. "Now in the game, any contact with the head is illegal. That's on my behalf and this is definitely a learning experience. Moving forward, I'll be smarter.
"It's just recognizing the situation and where the player is on the ice and how he's positioned and just be smarter about how I go about approaching that. If his head is down and there is going to be any contact in the head region, I can't take that hit... it's something that you've got to judge, it'll be tough, but I certainly think that it's not something that will affect my game."

"Will beats skill when skill doesn't have enough will."
I believe that Caron is now in Houston, and has been converted to wing (not sure which side). I'm fairly certain Jobke is sticking in Houston as well (although I think he's technically eligible for the CHL still).
Caron in his role as the tough guy is easier to field as a winger than taking up a defenseman slot. kind of nice that if a D goes down too they have someone else in the lineup familiar with the position.
