as I pointed out a while back, last season we didn't have a single forward with more than 200 shots. Hornqvist has 13 in two games. Not every shot can be a big time scoring chance, but if you continually put the puck on net, things will happen for you. I applaud his effort, and I've been much more impressed with him this year than last.

on a side note, I asked Carolina fans what they thought of Santorelli-- if he was a product of playing with Erat and Legwand, created his own offense, etc...

The reviews were good. They warn against getting too excited over preseason success(something I think we're all in tune with,) but they did say he was all over the place, and his goal was off a nice shot through a screen, perfectly placed.
