Arby's? Most Euros wouldn't even recognize that as foodstuffs! And the coasters at Cedar Point are nothing compared to driving in Rome! I think Niki's really in it for the sweet corn!

No one can resist five for five. (Someone please photoshop Niki with one of those Arby's logos over his head. Thank you in advance.)

And Niki's never been to Rome. He did play with him last year in Syracuse, though. I hear he's looking forward to working on his game there again this season.

For the most part he's been saying what people want to hear. So much so that I just can't get myself to care what he says. The unintended or intended "warning" to CBJ management was almost enough to wake me up. But his desire to win a Cup? Whatever. Talk to me when someone says they don't want to win one. That would be news worthy.

Arby's "cheese sauce" is nasty. Rax, now there were some good sandwhiches! After football games, the treat was a BBC, twisty fries, and a strawberry shake....ahh, memories

They're still out there!

Arby's cheese sauce, while not as delectable as Rax's, is perfectly acceptable. Its the RJ Umberger of cheese sauces, nothing flashy, but reliable.

Maybe someone else has already posted this, but an "RJ UMBERGER with fries" would be a great addition to the West Side Grill. Maybe serve it up with a little bit of Chipotle sauce. (no chipotle sauce down here).

And before anybody else mentions it... "The Nik Fil-ay-a-tov Chicken Sandwich". Or will that label him?

Arby's is much better here than it is down there. Granted so is every other fast food restaurant.

Is Filatov a lock for the team or what? what are the chances he starts in the AHL?

0% chance he's in the AHL, he's made the Jackets, there's a link in the training camp thread confirming this.

oh good, I just picked him in a pool. Should probably check prior to the draft next time...

Does he look like he could put up some good numbers this year?

Define good. Kid will put up points no matter who he's playing with. But if you're looking for a 60 point season, it's probably not gonna happen.

I'll stick to what I've said before, around 20 goals and 30 assists.. depending of course on how he is used. During preseason he was worth around a point a game..

It depend on one important thing. In which line he will play. If with Vermette with Voráček or Brassard with Nash (a first opportunity is likely) he can get these 50 points.

I would consider 30 - 40 points good. I picked him very late so i'm not expecting much but I know he has potential to be a great pick.

50 points would be great, hope he gets to play with Nash

I figured he would be a good pick since he's already spent time in the AHL and should be more ready than most of the other rookies.

1st time I ever seen him play was yesterday. I absolutely love his skating and speed. I HOPE he is in Columbus for a very, very long time.

You saw his best game of the pre-season. Hopefully he keeps going in that direction and only gets better. Kid has mad skills for sure.

Well, I do agree that he assumes we're all pretty interested in what he has to say.

Having said that, I see his willingness to share (even if they are somewhat anodyne thoughts) as a positive thing...he's got some self confidence and I imagine that positively informs what he does on the ice. I can only try to put myself in his shoes, the world is his oyster and he probably IS used to people indulging him to a certain extent. And I think we were all pretty self-absorbed at that age.

Sounds like the 2nd line is Filatov-Vermette-Voracek

They were together some in the pre-season and well, as Hitch might put it...'dangerous in both ends'...

There are just so many different possible ways to interpret that statement that it almost qualifies as poetry.
