Hopefully Nedved Can Play Like Nieuwendyk

from the Philadelphia Inquirer,
Hitchcock likened Nedved's role to that of Joe Nieuwendyk in Dallas behind Mike Modano. "Joe was really good coming out of that second hole where he could help other players on his line," Hitchcock recalled. "We think Petr can do the same." Nedved's passing and puck-possession skills add a dimension that Forsberg also brings to the game. "When you add players with good skill level, they can make other players around them better, and Petr has that ability," Hitchcock said.
