Knuble's career still on upswing

Quote:
Knuble's career took a decided upswing in the 2002-03 season when, as a 30-year-old member of the Boston Bruins, he was promoted to a line with Joe Thornton and Glen Murray because of an injury to Sergei Samsonov. And while the Thornton-Murray-Knuble line was not quite as dominating as the Legion of Doom line of Eric Lindros, Mikael Renberg and LeClair, it was one of the most explosive units in the league for two full seasons.

"What they've done to my career is amazing," said Knuble, whose goal totals jumped from eight in 2001-02 to 30 the following season and 21 the next. "Playing with them opened doors I never thought would open for me.

"I was a fourth-line guy just going out there trying not to make mistakes. Sometimes you need some people believing in you and Joe (Thornton) became very demanding. It was career-saving stuff that happened in Boston and it allowed me to come to Philadelphia."

Yikes. He's basically saying he has the talent of a fourth line player, but was made to look a lot better by playing with Thorton and Murray? Isnt that the fear we've had about him all along?

No, he's saying that because of Thornton and Murray that he's gained the confidence in himself to realize that he's better than just a 4th liner.

He didn't play with Thornton. His linemates were Brendan Morrison and Kristen Huselius.

Knuble seems to be the forgotten guy with all the Forsberg, Carter, and Richards talk. He could really contribute a lot, I'm looking forward to seeing him out on the ice with a flyer's jersey on.

Is Heselius actually pronounced "useless"?

I ask because every time I play NHL2K5 I can't help but laugh.
