    I just saw the kid play and I was amazed. I don't think I've seen someone possess so much puck poise this side of Martin Skoula.

    He's a beast. He's grown up so much in the last few years that he hardly resembles the same Dustin that we once knew. Any word on how his stats are lately?

    :lol Skoula will never lose the 'puck poise' stigma. Who was it that started that? RIAL?

    That guy has got so much freakin' speed, it's not even fair. I once saw him receive the puck from his goalie behind his net, carry it all the up the ice, weaving around each defender like he was doing the slolem around some yellow road cones, and bury the puck top-shelf on the glove side back-handed. Absolutely WOW!!!!

    Ya, it was KL. At first, he was saying that Skoula had the best poise in the NHL. THen when everyone jumped on him for that, he back-tracked to "puck poise". But it didn't help him any as puck poise went down into HF lore. Good times.

    That puck poise thread was a killer. One of the truly great threads in HF history.

    Also, the one time I went to see him. He decided to go outside and kill himself a bear with his bare hands during the first intermission and ate it on the bench between shifts during the second.

    pffft...anyone can do that. But the way he makes Konstantin Koltsov and Jason Chimera look like old ladies on the ice...now that's impressive!

    Yeah, I was just about to say.... Dustin might end up being a better playmaking wing than Cola.

    A lot of this dates back before the new boards, altogether.

    You won't get much agreeance on that one.

    Koltsov and Chimera undoubtedly are faster.
