I think all of us in the GDC would agree THIS is the Nat we like...
The hair in this next one scares the hell out of me for some dark reason. And the outfit looks like something a fembot would wear on the bridge of the Enterprise. Dave definitely looking like an alien blob here.
Though this was taken in 2010-2011 when she worked for the Thrashers, it's definitely how it looked when she started for us in 2011-2012. Pulled back real tight, lots of woolen jackets and sweaters. Reminds me of that teacher in the Sting song.
Here's "curly" back in her Atlanta days, and I think we have discovered the REASON for her enormous mane seemingly out of control at times during interviews.... she's naturally curly, and has to use chemical straighteners which makes the hair stick out. (Am I right girls, or am I right?)
Apparently she's a BGSU grad and Van Wert native, so that's cool.
Natalie's hair is a bigger question mark than Bobrovsky and Mason combined. But ultimately the hair may be more important than JD in the long run.
It's a lot like Mark Letestu. A role player that won't be an allstar anytime soon, but it can do anything you need to. Weighty. Finesse. It's as good as it gets. Alls it does is show up every night. To make a play you gotta go to the dirty areas.
