I've said this before, but I wish all the best to Tomas. He has the offensive tools to be a force in the NHL, clearly.

Here's to a 30 point campaign and a minus 39!

Ok, hopefully you guys can clear this up...how the hell do you pronounce this guy's name? Is it "Poke" or "Pock"?

What makes that clear? That he was excellent in the AHL? So were Andrew Hutchinson, Joel Kwiatkowski, Lawrence Nycholat, etc... He looks like a guy that can provide a moderate offensive contribution and nothing else. I've seen nothing to indicate he can become a "force."

Um.. the fact that in small stretches he put up points for us with limited ice time.

That was pretty clear that his offense could make it in the NHL, his defense from instincts to positioning is downright horrible...

His Defense needs work, but he can be a serviceable D man, Right now Pock is better than Hutchionson ever was.

Actually, you pronounce it most like "Perk". It should actually be written Poeck in English, because it's properly written with an umlaut (which i can't seem to type on my phone)...

I'd like to know how to properly pronounce Bergenheim. It's a Norwegian name, which sounds really weird when I try to say it in Finnish. Is it the Swedish way or the Norwegian way..?

"Making it" offensively is a far cry from being a "force", no? Particularly when his defense is a consideration. Again, he looks like a guy who can give a moderate offensive contribution and nothing else. A force he is not!

You are arguing semantics. We are essentially saying the same thing except you are picking apart my words, its kind of petty/annoying but whatever.

The words "power play specialist" come to mind...
