They both skated this morning as well. Roenick was skating well. Didn't see much of Miller, but I did see him shooting the puck with JR in front. JR couldn't miss tipping the puck.

Let me start with some qualifying remarks. I am a huge JR fan. I was told by Team LA that I was the first person to order a Roenick jersey after we signed him. I have been a fan of his for years, largely because he's an American, but also because of his style of play. I like him for the same reasons I liked Rick Tocchet -- he's a gritty player who will fight and can score. I also like the Flyers, so when he went to Philly that elevated him further in my eyes, and when he came here I was thrilled. I've been one of his biggest defenders here and at LGK, pointing out the positive things he's done despite not scoring.

Let me also say that I haven't watched him 24/7. I am commenting on what I have seen in brief spurts at Toyota combined with what I've seen in games (not just based on one skate). Maybe he's getting hard cardio on a treadmill or a bike after skating. I don't know. I am only commenting on what I have been able to see.

One thing I have noticed about JR this year is that he floats around a lot in games. When it comes to skating hard and being physical, I think he's been a spot-picker. In practice, he should be working hard. While it is good to see him skating, what I saw was someone who doesn't think he needs to work hard. He'd do a suicide at 70% speed, then take a long break instead of doing another one right away. He'd do crossover drills, again not at 100%, then take a long break.

Look, I'm a fat old man (JR and I are about the same age). I play in an adult league in a lower division. I'm not good. But I do know what it's like to practice, and I know how much effort it takes to do different things in practice. I've also played enough sports in my life and had enough success doing so to know what it takes to be successful.

JR has been a huge disappointment to me. He is NOT working hard in practice unless I am missing something. At $5 million a year, that's completely unacceptable to me. It should be to you too.

Somebody go watch him practice and tell me I'm wrong.
you served a good 7 minuter though
