i think the 3rd line is better than the 2nd

Rick said...

I can see your point offensively, but if you look at the responsibility in both zones there is now way that 2nd line comes up short. The 2nd line will play good defensively against the 1st line and generate offensive plays as well. I don't see Steps or Avery being able to accomplish the same.

Might as well say it now, these pregame notes are and have always been great. I dont know if you copy the notes from somewhere but they are always informative and formatted nicely. Also like the links to opponents blog. Good stuff Kev

Stepan w/ a hat trick in his NHL debut. Ice veins indeed. I forsee a nice future for this guy.

how was this kid a second round pick? I don't recall the 2008 draft being a particularly deep draft? Was he not developed? Defensive deficiency? Did the Rangers just see something no one else did? Another year, another chance for Gordie Clark to smile
