Exactly right. Reimer made several nice saves, tough saves, but there didn't appear to be a lot of odd man rushes, very few post to post saves and not a lot of real quality scoring chances.

Reimer or Gus will take shots from the outside that they can see all game long.

Reminded me a little of Larry Murphy's poise actually.

Oscar De La Hoya! Imagine Murphy with Garnider's wheels?

Of late? He's been phenominal all year.

Overall, the upside of the D is very, very high. Franson, Gardiner, Schenn and even Phaneuf all are improving. Add in a kid like Blacker, who seems to have a lot of management believing he can be ready next yr, we're overflowing w/ talented D men.
