"I guess what scares me about that is the memories of being in the stands between 1997-2004 and hearing the things that were said about Nedved. And when the games start getting quicker in October, will he be able to hang? And if he can't, will the fans get down on him, down on the team and begin a snowball effect of hatred? I just don't think his 36-year-old body, or his 36-year-old psyche would be able to deal with it."
Stan Fischler at MSG.com has more on Nedved making the cut....another reason to not give Nedved a roster spot is it will stunt the growth of younger players such as Korpikoski, Anisimov or Parenteau.
...plus we need a defensive presence on the 4th line which Blair Betts provides.
