Thought he looked solid. I thought it was his best game from what i've sen so far. He played physically, banged some bodies in the corners and didnt make any mistakes which is all you can ask for from a shutdown D!!
23:41 minutes of Ice time tonight. Only Phaneuf played more. He looked really good. Physical, tough to play against, and looked really calm when going back in his zone to retrieve the puck with an agressive winnipeg forechecker on his ***.
This thread was a blessing in disguise. Please, make more of these for Grabovski and MacArthur.
Yeah some of our fans really know how to call it.
Holzer, Frattin, Fourth Line. I was going to change my first goal prediction to Mac for Montreal but I don't want to make Hatter's job worse than it is. But those who haven't made theirs should jump on the Mac bandwagon right away.
I'll be the first to admit that I said (and still think) he sucks. But he's been good the past two games (still wouldn't sit Komisarek for him)... if he keeps it up, I'll gladly eat crow.
Why do you think he sucks exactly? He's been developing nicely, played for Germany at the 2010 Olympics and was a top d-man for the Marlies for quite some time. He's been NHL ready for over a year now. He was touted to have 2nd pairing potential for a while now.
I was bashing what was an incredibly poor first couple games, but Holzer has really played well since. Last night was quite impressed and the coaches must have been too, given Holzer was out there at end of game.
