One of my favourite players on the team is Blake Wheeler. After a slow start last year something magical happened. Everything clicked. He was playing with extreme confidence and was just dominant out on the ice.
Through 6 games he is just not quite there yet. I watched him carry the puck into the Montreal zone late in the third and dump the puck in the corner. Last year he would have made a Burmi type moved, turned the defenceman inside out and taken a hard shot or made a soft pass to Ladd or Little. Wheeler is doing a lot of things well, shooting hard and rushing the net, but he just doesn't seem to have that same dominance in traffic that we loved watching last year. Hope it comes soon because that would make our first line truly spectacular!
