On a couple of the PPs we had nearly complete control of the zone, but couldn't get a good shot (hence the 'nearly'). I'm not sure in those cases if I'd rather have a sniper or a guy like Burns is expected to become. Big, in front of the net, picking up sloppy goals. We needed a guy who could keep his stick on the ice, keep his skates under him, and just put the puck towards the net from in close. The Canucks D was doing a pretty good job of shutting down all the outside shots at times, which is when I thought it would be nice to have a big guy on the inside. I agree though, we do need a marksman. Brandner's supposed to have those kind of skills. Hopefully we'll get a look at them Sunday. I wonder if Burns will get a taste of preseason this year?
