I watched the 1st period and really liked that 2nd line Jurco-Ferraro-Mursak, as well as Almqvist on the backend. He's so smooth with the puck in his own zone, made a lot of great opening plays. And he doesn't look that small anymore so I'm starting to believe he could be a NHLer if he works on his skating and gains weight.
I think Jurco is a prime break out candidate next year. I haven't any Griffin games recently but it wouldn't surprise me in the least if next year he had .8 P/G or even was a P/G. He should be the main offensive option next year with Sheahan/Jarnkrok/ as his center, either of them are able to produce offensively. He'll have a quite a bit of offensive up front with him again & even more on the backend.
Highlights for tonight's game are up on the Griffins YT page.
Thanks for posting. I like those Griffins uniforms. Good to see Jurco break out a bit. Also nice work by Aubry to be able to push past a defender along the boards to set Jurco up on that first goal. Looks like it was another strong outing for Mrazek.
The radio broadcast on Sunday mentioned that he was out with an injury. I was not really paying attention so I do not remember the details but from the sounds of things it is/was not real serious.
That guy has no luck with injuries. Will always be a big Mursak supporter, hope he gets back into the NHL with someone else. If not a KHL team would be wise to scoop Jan up, he has a decent amount of talent.
