Eh, what do I know. I probably said the same thing during Schlemko's entire first season.
Kind of agree on some counts - he had a great first 2 games, then his game somewhat plateaued. Could have been simply up-tempo teams, cause he did not look great against the Avs. But he had been pretty reliable and made smart plays with the puck. When he did shoot, they had a lot of thunder behind them, but not positioned well to force the goalie into giving up rebounds.

With Klesla back in tow, I think we have our lines set with the space-eaters and defensive responsibility of Michalek/Morris/Klesla to pair with the guys who can move the puck into the zone in OEL/Yandle/Rundblad. Summers can play either role b/c of his footspeed.
