That gives me a lump in my throat. I used to be a home manager in a home for people with developmental disabilities. I loved a lot of them and it always means a lot to me when people go out of their way to be nice to the people who usually get ignored.
Good for the Preds and the guys from other teams who have made this guy's life happier.
So, cprice, you hate Pasha because you lost him in scouting???? The only scout that ended up seeing him was ours, and he had gone there originally to look at Dmitri Kalinin. He found himself watching Pasha and was interested. The next time he went back there was some kind of mixup in flights or something so no one else ever scouted him. And that's one of the reasons why you hate him??? Cause you didn't get him?
I'm sure many equipment managers hate Pasha. Crawling in the rafters after a game in search of jock straps is tedious work.
We're all concerned about Hank not getting the goals, but his linemates are scoring in droves. To me this says that Hank is getting the job done. Also, his shots on goal is still up there. To me this says that he is kind of snakebit (although a minor bite- maybe just one fang) at the moment.
I have no doubt that he will continue to impress, although factors such as age and injury do and will have their effect. He is, after all human.
Protests are stupid. If you want to change things, get yourself in a position to do something. Get off your butt and become part of the process that makes the decisions instead of sitting around trying to get attention.
