from a couple of readers of Kukla's Korner.
Zalesak was in the top 5 of AHL scoring in 03-04.
He said: "I talked with my previous team (SJ) but we couldnt agree. 6-7 teams were interested in me and in the end it was between Toronto, Washington and Vancouver. After consulting with my agent I chose Washington, which has a young team, ambitions and hasnt got a lot of signed players. I have a big chance to play and I hope it turns out well."
He added:"If they send me to the farm, it will be on me If I stay or go to Europe".
