Great comments on Rathbone also echoed by BB. I think guys like me are expecting too much from this kid. I guess it's a win if he canmake the club and play 8-10 min a night. Off course JR is going to make public facing comments like this. He is going to say anything that might help push this team forward and quash any notion that the players might rest on their laurels after that great finish to last year. The management team is doing all they can to avoid a tepid start to this season. “More intensity” comments are pretty much at the top of the Management User Manual. Like us all, JR wants to see progression through the pre-season, both for individuals and in a team sense, especially as cuts are made and the final team roster takes shape. As for Rathbone, I have no expectations other than he has several NHL+++ skills (skating, shot, offensive IQ) that should enable him to become a NHL player for us. How good a player will largely depend on the areas he still needs to improve on. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
