Both you and Terry make a great point about his role concerning trades this off season. It's not his responsibility so it's his job to go out there and make the best of the players he has.

I really enjoyed this part.

All Dean's talk about 'hockey culture' and junk is great, because I agree with it, but I always feel he's too vague about it.

Nice to see Murray put something tangible on that.

Also really liked this bit:

I hope and pray Kopitar takes all of this conditioning stuff to heart. He should ritualistically burn the Homer slippers in his yard and pee on it to put it out. I love that he kind of has that 'big kid' disposition (though he is really just a kid), but I want to see the same type of commitment Johnson showed last summer to getting stronger, or the kind of commitment Doughty showed leading up to the draft to get in NHL shape.
