DROP THE PUCK

Hagelin - His conditioning, stamina, endurance is insane. Its unreal how in shape he is. His motor doesn't stop. He has a degree in sports management but if he wanted to he could also be a fitness trainer.
Nash - Has great power and strength. Hedman is a big kid, 6-6, 230+ and he was hanging off Nash's back and Nash was still able to.control the puck. Unreal power by Nash. Opens up so much space for his linemates. Defenders gravitate toward him and just opens so much space. Anyone struggling offensively needs to play with this guy.
Richards - Finally a solid game. Making plays, creating, smarter decisions with the puck. Power Play needs work still. Maybe too much time and space causes him to over think it a little.
Miller - He oozes confidence. Strong kid. Its easy to forget he's still a teenager. He will be up and down as any rookie would be, but tonight was an up. Real solid effort.
Stepan, Callahan, Powe, Halpern...
Just a solid overall effort from everyone.
Stepan was winning faceoffs tonight. Makes a big difference for puck possession.
Gaborik was good too. He didn't score but he was more engaged. He got into the dirty areas in the corners and in front.
Staal was outstanding. The D corp was solid as expected.
Lundqvist was outstanding when he had to be.
First game in a while with a solid collective effort for 60 minutes. This is how they need to play.
Now they must carry it over. Build on it. They leap frogged Winnipeg and Tampa and are now in 9th with 20 points. Still right in the thick of it.
BTW WOW that O'Reilly offer sheet is crazy. 2nd year is over 6 million? Wasnt expecting that. That's ridiculous.
