Skjei is a shutdown guy. That's how Lucia uses him in Minnesota and that's how he will be used in the WJC. Skjei had decent offensive numbersin high school before going to US program in Michigan. Skjei was probably the best player in his high school league. McD was an offensive player in high school. He decided to stay in high school instead of going to the US Program. Eaves and Tortorella used McD as a shutdown guy. AV uses him in more offensive situations. Skjei is very much like Hedican who was a great skater like Brady. Didn't have much offense to his game. Good transition player. Make a good first pass like Skjei. Hedican had a very long NHL career. Let's hope Skjei is Hedican. That Vancouver team in 94 became a different team when they added Hedican and Brown from the Blues for Nedved. Both of those players helped the Canucks get the pucks to their forwards. Hedican is good analyst too on the Sharks broadcasts. Bouwmeester isn't a great offensive player but he is a great skater. He is having a very good year with the Blues. Bouwmeester seems to be reborn with the Blues.
