You'd expect that in the first 10-15 games of being a rookie but he's got to either rifle that or take it to the net.

Hartikainen - I guess you'd argue he hasn't been given a legitimate shot, but he doesn't play to his size and I'm not really sure where he fits on this team TBH. He's not a grinder, he's not a skill guy. He's good along the boards, but so was Laraque.
Disagree on the Yak 2 on 1. Niemi was on top of the crease and had the angle for the shot. Yak had very little room to sleep. The pass was nice and Gagner had full net
