He wasn't the same player last night as last year, and it is because he can't go out making runs at people (even if they have the puck).

Upshall is better than all three of them.....Its too bad we have him down in Milwuakee. This would have been a perfect game to utilize him tonight.

We have to do something with that line, either make it a trapping oppurtunist line or a physical energy line......but not leave it so undefined.
This I agree with, and I guess it's what I'm getting at....
