And yes, you canont invent/teach talent. Add some beef to him, and we have a real keeper. This is a good thing!

That said.... the worst line on the ice in the 1st period was without question, the Lapierre line. They were simply bad. They turned it around, for sure, but early on, if the Habs would have gone a goal or two down, it would have been their fault.
I was saying the sam ething to the guy beside me at the Bar. Lapierre's line was in constant trouble early, to the point where I thought they'd have to go to 3 lines soon. Then Lapierre makes his play to Streit..... I've always criticized Lapierre because he couldn't make those plays with the puck. Shows what I know.
