Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-25-09  Phoenix: After only three years in the NHL, this guy is already one of the best hockey players in the entire league. At the moment, he is all alone in the scoring race, having amassed 44 goals. That's 9 more than Zach Parise of the New Jersey Devils.

He is also having a great Aeroflot Open. A half-point behind the leader in the A2 group, last time I checked. How does he find the time?
