Good work, Inferno... i'm dying now and can't wait for the season to begin!
The kid has some set of wheels. Trap breaking wheels. I just wonder if there's going to be a conflict between he and Gomez since that seems to be both of their strong suits. I guess you can't have enough speed though, and it sure would be nice to have a winger who can keep up with Gomez speed and skill wise. There's a ton of potential here. Man, I can't wait for the puck to drop!
Seeing them always makes me wonder just how the idea formed in some people's minds that he doesn't like to go into the tough areas to score. He's not a power forward, where he creates room by leaning on people and shouldering 'em aside, but he's certainly not afraid of contact.
Thanks Inferno...not sure how I missed it yesterday. But in some ways I'm glad I did...woke up this morning and it finally sunk in that we're going to be without Jagr and Avery this year and it's a little depressing. But every time I see this kid play it makes me cheer up a bit.
