No surprise and I like this move by the count. He was clearly the best option on that team. He's young, he's dynamic, he's charismatic, he's brought hockey back to relevance in the District. Hell, they even beat the Redskins in the ratings last week in the DC area. Since his arrival, they have clearly passed the Nationals and probably the Wizards.
He brings it every night, his love and excitement for the game is palpable, and he's probably the most captivating player in the league today. He won't play any defense, but he hasn't for the better part of 5 years. As long as he keeps potting 50+ goals and hits like a man possessed then it's all good.
