He's also benefiting from the early season incohesiveness that really favors fast players who can take advantage of chaos...which will slow him down somewhat as things coalesce.

One thing is for certain, our ability to score shorthanded is going to freak teams out if it keeps up, and with Richards, Gagne, and Carter all out there with speed at the top to go the other way...teams are going to be very careful, which will hinder their scoring ability against us.

As to tonights game...it has trap game written all over it after getting out of dodge last night. A Western team...not a lot of animosity btwn them. It will be interesting what type of energy we come out with.
