I guess there are worse problems to have...
I hope that's not the case. How many forwards do we have signed? I count 13 on one-way contracts. So with AK, and Sully that would put us at 15. I assuming we'll be carrying 7 Defenseman and 2 goalies. That gives us a total of 24 players. If Cowan was put on waivers that would give us a 23 man roster.

I hope Anze comes up to LA on Oct 22nd and stays there. This way, I can see him in Providence on the 21st.

I didn't really talk with him in English but in Slovenia English is taught since 4th grade 'till the end of high-school (at least). And also most Slovenians speak it quite well. (writing is something alse) But bearing in minde that he already played abroad I'm possitive that it will not be a problem for him.

Today's Times' article has a few very interesting paragraphs on Kopitar.
