How are you quantifying this? He didn't even score (). And prove to me he's faster. Josefson was flying before he got injured, and it was quite obvious (to me at least?) that his puck strength improved tremendously since last season.
As far as I'm concerned, there's some short-term memory loss going on here. I don't blame anyone for wanting to forget last season, but even with his limited strength at the time, Josefson was controlling play in both zones and seriously clicking witht he same duo Henrique is clicking with now. AH was flashy last night, I'll give everyone that. Maybe we're just impressed by different things.
What, do you want them to skate a timed lap at the pru when jajo is healthy?
I'm going by what my eyes tell me. Josefson was outmatched big time last year. His speed was mediocre and he was getting ragdolled with/without the puck. This season, his speed was noticeably better and his strength was a bit better. He made strides, I agree, but the speed I saw from henrique last night with the puck and on the forecheck was very impressive. It was a step above Jo.
Like Saugus said though, we're going to need both in the future. If they both progress like we expect it'll make our 3 down the middle (zajac-jo/ah-ah/jo) very solid..
