    Really? I thought he kind of simmered last month. Must have been a slow month for rookies. Whatever the case, we’ll take it! Nice job, Jonas.

    What’s up with the bull horns in the pic? Oh, wait, I just got it as I was typing my first sentence.

    This kid is going to be a star – bigger than Stuck even I think. Did you see the way he is tappin those offensive boards back to behind the three point line like Big Ben? Ben will have him in “the cage” this summer and he will be a beast for years to come.

    Not as sure about CV and BG – what is going on with these cats? Where is the heart? Where is the drive? Very disappointing.
