I originally didn't buy into the whole "Andy Murray is holding Berglund down" theory, but he's looked like a whole new player since Murray left town. You can just see the confidence and the renewed sense of purpose in his play. For a while there, I was starting to doubt his ability to become a #1 center (a little premature, I know).

I almost wish EJ hadn't made Team USA. He could use a week or two away from the game more than anybody else on the team right now.

You don't see many Polak jerseys, but man he's become a solid player for the Blues. Brings the intensity every night. Is strong as an ox...and playing with more nastiness this year.

That pairing with Jackman is fun to watch. They are constantly punishing the opposing forwards, and must be hell to play against. If Polak can continue developing a little offense to his game without losing any of the defensive edge, its just gravy. Very glad to see him get recognized with Player of the Game last night.

He deserves his spot on the Czech olympic team.
