"I just got forecheck and he little turn and it’s maybe a little my fault that little jump but it’s emotions and it’s the game."

Edmonton Oil Kings forward / Edmonton Oilers draft pick Kristians Pelss last Friday, just a few minutes of real time after his hit from behind late in the third period that had earned him five and a game. Today word came down that Pelss was suspended three games for this action. I saw the hit and thought other buddy (whose name escapes me at the moment) had turned away just as Pelss arrived, maximizing the severity of the impact. It was nonetheless a reckless hit well worthy of the major and misconduct, and I wasn't surprised when Red Deer's Chad Robinson instigated an immediate fight with Pelss (who fared rather well, all things considered). I'm slightly surprised that he got as many as three additional games, I thought maybe one at most although I am not that familiar with the relative severity of league discipline in the WHL.

He's a pretty special player. He makes the players around him much better. But once he walks out the door, he's a part of the Florida Panthers as far as I'm concerned. The longer he stays there, the better for him. If he can make that hockey club, I'll be the happiest guy in the world for him. We're not going to base everything on one individual. If he comes back I'm sure we'll find a way to get him back in the lineup (laughs).

"Basically he didn’t play last year. Every day he’s showing more and more. His mind thinks really fast. Right now, I’m very happy to see a player we drafted first do that well, to improve so fast. I thought he’d have a bit of a hard time since he didn’t play much last year so that says a lot about him."
