I go away it all on my agent [Petr Svoboda]. There is a couple of [NHL] groups that confirmed interest, but nothing at all distinct still.”

“I know quite effectively I’m not the exact participant like 10 or 15 several years back, when I was equipped to win game titles by myself,” he explained, according to NHL.com. “It is really up to the coach what posture he desires to use me. Probably it would be even superior for me if I played on a next or third line simply because I would perform versus worse players and worse defensemen. I did not have as a lot luck in my full career I generally had to face the major defensemen. Even in Florida, I generally played versus the very best, which was generally quite tough.”
The NHL time begins Oct. 4, but rookies report to groups at the beginning of September.
