no one said no one else can do it...settle down bro

and yes, his style does make him a better player down the stretch...his a strong gritty player that use speed and power to score goals
like Bob McKenzie once said: "he'll take the net off the moorings with his teeth if it means scoring a goal

Facing this type of adversity and fighting through it isn't something that's in your blood, it's something you gain from experience. Each of the kids is going to be responsible from hereon in to step up their game and be aware of what's at stake. This isn't Game 60 of a tank season anymore - there's a playoff spot on the line.
except in the Memorial Cup when they went down 0-2 and had to win 4 straight to take the title in 2010

He also won MVP that Tourny
