"Why can't he be just like Galchenyuk? He has size, skill, and determination."

"I'm so impressed by this kid. The way he carries himself, his thoughtfulness when dealing with the press and a sense of overall maturity. Let's just hope it carries over to the ice. He's certainly very different from Yakupov."

You should stop re-running articles from 2007.
You should stop re-running articles from 2008.
You should stop re-running articles from 2009.
You should stop re-running articles from 2010.
You should stop re-running articles from 2011.
You should stop re-running articles from 2012.
You should stop re-running articles from 2013.

At some point, Batty is going to have to take over player development.
