I really thought you guys were overhyping him before he came here. But he's quickly become one of everyone's favorites.
He didn't have the nickname "Night Train" for nothing! He became a fan favorite during his rookie year. He's not afraid of the rough stuff either, you'll see.

I would sit his butt on the bench the rest of the game. What can you say about G?!! He is simply amazing. His vision and hands are something to marvel at. Read looks like he has been in the league for years. I cannot wait for Schenn to get up here when he is ready.
Well, he played mainly on our third line in a checking role with Handzus and Ponikarovsky, but when Williams was out with the shoulder he got first line minutes and held his own. He has gotten better every year, with just minor backward steps. He should become a stud and maybe even be better than Schenn in the long run.

Mine too It would be sick to see these two teams in the finals.
Just read on Sports.ru about other #93 we used to have- he wants to be traded, because he is told to play on a third line with limitted ice time and he is unable to show his talents.
Some things never change.
