Some terrific positives with this team as described above. In addition:
- I don't know if it's more a function of Calgary's bad pinches but the speed with which the Canucks counterattack is great fun to watch; kind of reminds me of the WCE days + Jovo
- Burrows / Kesler / Hansen so far looking like a great 2nd line, not 3rd
- If the MayRay / Demitra / Pyatt line can get untracked - lookout - they can roll out three lines; the Canadiens' Guy Carbonneau
believes that the days of a third line checking unit are over, and looking at how this team can counterattack with speed, this team will surprise some people
- Has anyone else perused the CalPuck forums? The schadenfreude
is all kinds of yummy...
I love how they STILL discount these two losses against a "vastly inferior Cannots team"... The cognitive dissonance is music to my eyes...
But some things they need to work on:
- It may be the strength of the Calgary PK, but the PP has to be more productive than it's been
- I love how the PK unit led by RJ has been perfect, but they need to be careful not to be overly aggressive and get themselves down two men
- BXA was a -2 before he got hurt; he didn't look bad but I hope he isn't out for too long. We'll see how Davison plays.
