i just hope he keeps up his physical play because thats one thing still lacking on the back-end...
big difference this year is hes hitting the net. and, we have guys who are standing in front looking to create chaos and that creates scoring chances. mara just needs to step into that big slapper of his and hes done his job offensively.

last year he didnt shoot as much and when he did it was usually wide. big difference when you hit the target.
