Well, I am (not "was") a big fan of Cereda. I still remember the 2000 camp (just before the heart problem was discovered). Luca was REALLY impressive (much moreso than Boyes - who I think will be a solid NHL player. *granted - Boyes was a year younger than Luca*).
He hasn't been the same since the surgery and I think the emphasis on confidence in the article, hit the nail on the head.
I'll patiently chart Luca's progress this year and hopefully, he'll make some strides. His vision of the ice is great and I think he has great hockey sense - he just needs to work on his skating a bit, he has decent enough hands.
