Isbister

Just curious how he has looked during the pre-season. I read through one thread that predicted the starting line-ups and many people thought he might be on the first line. Has he looked that good?

Thanks

He has looked very good from what I have seen/heard! He has been playing on a line with Hemsky/Smyth in the pre-season and apparently has developed quite the chemistry with Smytty.. he looks very determined so far to make an impact this season. He has been crashing the net very hard and has actually been putting the puck in the net at a fairly decent rate. We won't know til the regular season if he's going to keep it up or if this is just another "glimpse" at the potential he has though! :mad:

He's playing on a line with Hemsky and Smyth with Smyth being the centre. According to fans, the trio has a lot of chemistry.

Umm.... am I missing something? Has that line played a scrimage (much less a game) together? I like the sound of the line, but from what I've seen herd, if Rita makes it it'll probably be with Reasoner (who he had great chem. with in the camp scrimages).

They haven't played since because Smyth has been out with an injury but that is the only reason!

k, sry, I misread, I thought it was being implied that a line of Rita-Smyth-Hemsky looked good.

Isbister - Smyth - Hemsky played together against Van. I am pretty sure Smyth and Hemsky had the goals that game too...
