Neat. Hope it works out, he used to play with Jumbo in Boston. Some of us were talking about have TJ on the top line, maybe this could be a better solution if he can still play.

does "no comment" usually mean yes or no?

Because the team accountants aren't sure if DW already blew this year's training camp budget on tanning oil or not.

If he does make the team, I wonder if they'll play him with Jumbo on the first line. Push one of Marleau or Pavelski down to the second or third line.

He should go for this:

http://www.amazon.com/Hawaiian-Tropi...ds=tanning+oil

Seems like a solid deal.

DW doesn't use cheap stuff like that. He uses super rare and expensive tanning oil made made from blue whale, baby seals and pandas.

Remember he's Canadian, he goes for the bald eagle add on salve as well.

Pass, wasn't that great when he was younger when we had him, don't think he's any better 10+ years later.

Samsonov-Thornton-Cheechoo is going to be our top line next season. Cheechoo pots 50 again and Samsonov is PPG. Thornton wins the Art Ross.

You see Semin's teammates' quotes? Especially Neuvirth? I've never seen so many NHL teammates question a player's work ethic before.

For Semin, the lack of work ethic is most likely true. Not saying he's worthless, but the criticism from teammates was shocking to me.

At least Samsonov is no where near as bad as Semin in this way.

On Semin, I definitely agree that his personality has little bearing on his hockey-ability...people have shown that he is a very talented and productive player.

However, character/work ethic matters in that you don't want to "hire" someone with those kinds of values. It is not good from an organizational standpoint.
