Kukla's Korner Hockey

from David Staples of The Cult of Hockey at the Edmonton Journal,
“Pittsburgh was smart to pick up Miro Satan because he’s a more complete player than Marian Hossa,” Adler says. “Hossa is a scorer, but so is Satan, except Satan knows even how to backcheck, AND he’ll know how to get Crosby into scoring positions and get the puck to him.
“Satan slowed down at the Island last season (just 16 goals in 80 games), but that doesn’t mean he he hasn’t got it any longer ... The Islanders stunk last season, that’s all.”
So two veteran hockey observers think Satan can do it. I’m not so sure, and I’ll get into that in a moment. It’s worth noting now, though, that Satan has defied negative expectations in the past.
