They usually update those after physicals before training camp.

Yeah...I also think Danny Hinote went after Chara in Europe once during the lockout. Love the small guys full of **** and vinegar.

It was in the playoffs and there is an automatic suspension for fighting in Sweden. So it was mostly strategic. Gutsy though.

Danny never really had a chance...Thanks for linking. I forgot how much Chara rag-dolled him around.

Would breaking 30 G and 50 A be that farfetched this season, I think not. I really think he'll be a superstar..

50 assists might be a stretch. With his vision though, anything is possible. Haven't seen so many no look passes (good ones) in a long time.

Okay, I got too enthused. 40 is more realistic, but I feel it's possible with more PP time and overall Ice time.

He's added 20 pounds of pure fat this summer. Lucky to get 40 points.

Sorry Aves fans.

Svatos was awesome when he had some semblance of health. By the end he was a one trick pony, good around the net and may score a dirty goal or two. When he first entered the league he had a really slick pair of mitts, I remember in his rookie season (the super short one because he got injured) he dangled through the Blackhawks and just missed on the goal. His skill paired with his tenacity was awesome. It wasn't just Pronger he went after either, it was like he would find the biggest defensemen on the other team and keep hitting them until he finally knocked them down. It's really too bad that his body couldn't keep up with his playing style, as he was awesome.

I think this is a great decision. Keeps him focused on hockey and out of trouble. Not that he seems like the type who would get in trouble anyway.

Indeed. Besides, now he's got a dime to occupy his time.

Given how good he was last year and physically mature he is, it's easy to forget how young he still is.

He's only two months older than Sam Reinhart, which is kinda crazy.

I find it amusing he's living with Talbot since he's been on the team longer than Talbot has

After scoring a goal there's only one thing to ask the goalie.....would you like fries with that?

Is that where they spend $5/hr towards Big Macs and $995/hr to Usain Bolt to fly past him and replace the Big Mac with a carrot just as he's about to take a bite?

Nah, it's the "wake up, have some nuggets, take a nap, have some more nuggets, win an Olympic gold medal" diet subscribed to by the inhuman Jamaican.

On a side note I think I read somewhere once that could probably survive on Guiness alone, but you'd need to drink like 50 beers a day. Probably need to eat an orange every now and then though.

Well that is where some of the earliest beers come from, liquid bread to feed the slaves in Egypt and keep them all a little intoxicated and docile.
