I am most impressed by the athleticism that Liffiton shows. Even in the hits he throws.
What he has to do and get better with is with the puck... Just the passing and the decisions. Quite possible that he doesnt get better in that department but gotta hope he does. He has the physical part down, and can clearly handle himself in a fight.
Agree.. Shutout means very little... Henrik is playing great and i think everyone realizes that. At this point, you take any chance you get to give guys like him a break.
Whats a bit funny is that Lundqvist are looking extremely hungry in the net, especially after we had blown it away.
Yes, he wants the SO. For a goalie its probably a good thing, but I've followed Lundqvist closely now since he where drafted, I've never seen anyone so concerned about his stats, its really obvious at times. He is from the video-game era!
When/if Hossa & Straka return (meaning PO hockey where fighter are not needed) - well then things could be:
Hossa - Straka - Jagr
Avery - Nylander - Shanny
Prucha - Cullen - Ortmeyer
Ibister/Betts - Dubinsky - Callahan
