So Wayne Simmonds weights 183 lbs per the Flyers website at 6'2". On CBSportsline he is 175 lbs.
I thought he was much bigger guy. Vanek weighs 25 + lbs more.
CBSportsline is probably years out of date. The Flyers listing is probably from this year's or last year's weigh-in on the first day of camp. Considering his age it would be expected that he'd have added a solid 8 pounds of muscle over the past few years.
I thought the Sabres looked pretty solid in their first game. The centers played well and Ott got in a chipper. I was impressed as you guys shalacked what will be the first of many on Ilya Bryzgalaxyquest.
Rob Ray was the worst "y'know" guy I've ever noticed and he's a native English speaker. He said it as a grace note before nearly every sentence, it was distracting as hell once you realized it was happening. He's gotten much better in recent seasons. Grigorenko gets a pass, he seems like an intelligent kid who has a lot on his plate.
