"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Loving this, these guys are competing for a job in the near future so for sure they want to show everything they have at this level/sage in their career. Nice to read about a fight between two players, but this was a situation, which Jenssen couldn't win at all: either he beats mini Bertuzzi = > possibility of his uncle coming on the ice and taking care of business :( or losing against mini Bertuzzi and avoid his uncle -->better option. I really don't like it, when players are having such advantages.

 

Not surprised at how Babcock talked about them, they are for now just that prospects getting drafted is just one step and not the whole way. I think he has a very realistic view on this whole thing, only 6 out of 10 are having a chance to make it and even less will become regular NHL players - thats the sad truth of trying to step into the best league worldwide, it is incredible hard to accomplish.

I don't think Jensen thought about or cared that it was Bertuzzi's nephew and I'm sure Bertuzzi doesn't give a s*** either.

I must say, Sproul looks massive and Frk has a killer mustache.

 

I also like Homer being there doing drills and teaching kids how to play in front of the net.

If only one of these kids listen to Homer, that kid could well have 4 rings in the future ;)

Revive the grindline

 

Imagine if we could convert Mike McKee back to forward and one of McKee, Bertuzzi, or Callahan to center. That would truly revive the ol grindline... McKee (the brawn and bare knuckles, replacing Kocur / McCarty) - Callahan (the skilled two-way, converted to center, replacing Draper) - Bertuzzi (the in-your-face agitator, replacing Maltby). Work on their skill, without losing their grit and this could be a very good line that could shut down any line in the league.

I read this as "Lidstrom out with shoulder injury" and I immediately began to panic before realizing:

A.) it's the offseason
and
B.) Nick is retired

:lol:

Old habits die hard.
