Doubt that, because Primeau will be in the press box again tonight, seems like he and Lundmark are rotating

I thought Primeau scored a great goal against the Pens on Sunday- because he goes to the net. Also - Primeau doesn't need to audition for a spot on the team next year. Let's keep Primeau being scratched in perspective. He's waaaay better than Lundmark and years beyond Wallin.

I used to hate him. Now I don't mind him.

He's not here to score goals, obviously. He's generally a responsible defensive forward and he's been doing his designated job well enough.

Frogen is swede and not soft

Sjostrom is swede and not soft

Stalberg is swede and not soft

Gunarsson is swede and not soft.

Swedes are chicken and soft?

He was okay, really improved towards the end here. I think he can be replaced internally or by trade though.

I don't think he meant to imply that all swedes are chicken and soft, but the leafs should avoid those who are. At least in a fourth line role.

After all it was some one on the Leafs that really showed that not every swede had to be a chicken swede ;P

Orr scored the goal, not Primeau. And lets not forget Wallin's contribution to the play (had a breakaway that lead to the puck sitting on the goal line). I don't think you give Wallin enough credit for his play the last 20-25 games. He is playing a lot better than he was at the start of the year.

I remember reading your comments about Wallin at the start of the year and I agreed with you. However, since Sjostrom has arrived he has been much more confident, and has all together been better. I think you need to give him some credit for his recent play, Richie. He is playing consistently because he is playing better than Primeau and Lundmark.
