-Zapletal is learning a'plenty about North American popcorn. In the Czech Republic, they don't butter during the cooking process. Here in North America rinks, it's important to soak the seeds in a buttery substance. See Darren Rumble for details.

For the record, Zapletal has been out with an "eye" injury suffered in an October 1st game against the Red Deer Rebels. There was some pushing and shoving and a fight broke out...he didn't fair too well.
I'm not sure if it was a fist or his shield that cut him around the area of his eye, but swelling has caused him to miss some time; they say that they are hoping to get him back for October 8th.
If you are looking for me to critique his play thus far, I can't help you. I just haven't seen him play enough to get a decent opinion.

-Keller NS, E, 4 PIM (roughing on top of a slashing call. Other guy got an instigator, FM and Misc. during the same time slot - so I'm guessing Keller slashed him, he started a fight and Keller did enough to warrant a roughing call.)
Minnesota starts tonight with an E-game vs. Calgary. I got word from Jake that Atherton is taking some time off for personal reasons, but will be back by Christmas.
Tonight the PEI Rocket and Jonathon Boutin take on Alexander Radalov and
Josh Hennessey of the Quebec Ramparts.Tommorrow night its the league leading
Chicoutimi Sagueens.I'll be looking forward to seeing top 2005 draft prospect
Marek Zagrapan.Especially looking forward to Boutin robbing him blind.
I'll be at both games and I'll report back.GO BOUTIN GO.
Ramparts put an end to Boutin's streak, but he still stopped 35 of 38 I believe.
He stopped 34 of 37 and there was an empty netter.The first 2 goals were very
difficult to stop.The third one was somewhat soft- a weak shot that beat him on his glove side.He did make some great saves including a phenomenol save when the game was 2-2.Quebec was very good.Radulov didn't live up to his billing for
me in this game but you can see he has talent.Hennessey ,Gagne, and Lavallee
were very strong for Quebec.Truhkno and Gragnani were the Rockets best players.
Boutin had a good game ,just not a great one.
Another tough night for the Rocket .Mior started the game and let in 3 in about
9 minutes.Boutin came in and made several great saves.He was looking spectacular
but pei kept getting outplayed and took alot of penalties.The sags scored on a
power play from a screened shot.I don't think Boutin even saw it.He let in 2 more
when the sags were just allowed to walk right in.The sags were just too much
tonight.Zagrapan is pretty impressive.So is Bosclair and Lascek.They have a couple
of pretty good defencemen as well.Overall a very solid team.
Boutin is out with a groin injury.I don't think it's too serious but you never know.
I've heard from a reliable source that it has been bothering him for awhile but he tried to play through it and instead aggravated it more.Hpoefully he'll rest and
let it heal.There's no indication now of when he'll be back.
