Back to JP though, Mueller and Halischuk have given him new life. Much like when Sully was playing with O'Reilly and Hornqvist earlier in the year, these young kids are injecting live into JP's game. They do the dirty work, he finds the open space and is shooting the puck as opposed to trying to set anyone up. It's been working and I'm not going to question why.

i said in another thread his enthusiasm on the ice with the kids reminded me of hull's renewed spirit when he was matched up with datsyuk and zetterburg, before they were held in high regard like they are today. just an old man playing a game with kids...
