It's almost like we're trying to get more out of Slater because he might be turning into more then just a 4th line center. If that's the case though, I think Slater and Kane would work well together. Both play more of a straight line game.
Those bottom 2 lines are interesting to say the least.
Wish you would have told us how good Slater is. Actually the guy would probably blossom playing with better players, I'd actually like to see Slater on a line with Burmi.
Slater's shorthanded goal vs. Pronger was one of the best individual efforts by any Jet this year. Everything about that play. Awareness, the chip over Pronger, the hustle, the shot/pass decision, and of course the shot itself.
GO JETS GO! GO JETS GO! GO JETS GO! This city will be ROCKING this weekend, let's get it started out tonight. I was at the game against Carolina where the Jets finally broke out and started scoring, it was so awesome to feel the passion of Jets hockey return with a big five unanswered. I don't think Carolina's forgotten and they're not playing Boucher tonight either...instead we're the ones playing our backup...Carolina's in a more desperate position, but I like our chances with what I see happening in Carolina's defensive end. Slater's getting one tonight, I can feel it...
