but are you unimpressed by him? I'm less unimpressed by him then Eriksson lately. So for a 3rd i think it's a solid pickup.
The only time I really noticed him was when he had to get bailed out by Kipper late in the second. Not a great first impression but i guess it could be much worse. Giving Eriksson less ice time can't be a bad thing.
The fact that the Red Wings have key players like Lidstrom and Rafalski out tonight (as well as Kronwall and Cleary) leads me to believe we'll see a Flames loss. I hate to be negative especially after a two game winning streak, but I've seen this episode one too many times from this team - failing to take advantage of opportunites like this. Here's hoping I'm wrong and end up eating my words by the end of this game.
