Erskine's strengths withstanding a heavy forecheck, creating in transition, and puck possession are just what this team needs.
It's the haters who are ready to throw him under the bus. People who are in hockey are the ones who actually know hockey, and in fact I wouldn't be surprised if he is rushed into top 4 duty -- because especially with those groin injuries you want to get as much as of a workout as possible to make sure you get the full range of motion and build that power back up as soon as possible. Beets.
Wouldn't have mind Fehr missing these 2 games aswell if that meant calling up Wrecker aswell.
Okay maybe that's going bit too far.
lol wrecker is a beast for sure. Fehr is pretty streaky and hasn't been playing as well 5 on 5 as he has earlier this season. That being said, he was probably playing above his skill level for most of it.
