Also, Markov was terrible yesterday, but I agree he's still #1 on this team.

I thought Rivet played a great game tho. He's easily our #2 (on this team anyway).

Komisarek was mostly solid too, but very limited.

If Souray can't be a physical presence down low because of his lack of agility, it's time to go in another direction imo.

Better watch out leaves. Before you know it you are going to be related to McPhee and I....are you a blonde or brunette...lol
