I had mentioned earlier that before Rita got hurt, he was playing his best hockey I have ever seen him play.

I think this is what we (and the Oilers) were expecting to see from him. I honestly think the calling up of Salmo (whom I had originally said should get a call before Rita), really gave Rita a kick in the butt.

He wants to be in the NHL, and if he keeps this up, I don't see how the Oilers can leave him down.

And he was absolutely spectacular tonight. He won battles for the puck, races for the puck, made about 5 or 6 very smart defensive plays, and was moving the whole game.
