He's a bit streaky but by the end of the season, he'll somehow manage to be the leading goal scorer and he'll still get ragged.

Wings can't really score very well at the moment, so the fans are putting rookies under the microscope. He'll be fine. I think this was his best game of the three so far. He's figuring out how to use his speed a bit better. He'll learn to be more physical as the games wear on. Next, he has to find his offensive flair. He's still being overly cautious.

Hell, our idiot coach had Lashoff in more offensive type settings than Smitty, who's supposed to be a future PP QB. Maybe it's a reverse psychology kind of thing, to scare him into it.

Remember when people called Lidstrom and Rafalski overpaid?

Yup.
