Now about the “big” line (consisting of Naslun, Morisson, Bertuzzi)… it showed up last night, Naslund being solid (nothing too fancy or spectacular) but Bertuzzi worked his butt off as did Mo. We’re starting to see real depth with this team – even from players such as Josh Green, Alex Burrows and now Mojzis who are battling every game for a chance to stay up in the NHL. Bieksa making his impression after being with the Moose last year as well. Ryan Kesler has got some heart – going up against the likes of Iginla and Foote. John asked me if he was a rookie and I believe he was a call up last year and has been a pretty darn impressive addition to the roster ever since – he’s got wheels, fists and a lot of determination.
It seems like in Edmonton we crumbled when it came to offense and Auld was left to carry the team. With shots on goal being so lop-sided it really was no fault of his. He’s been solid and from the begining I have supported the Canucks’ decision to have him as our #1 (and I’m also openly anti Cloutier and Jovo so that may not be a surprise) :p
That’s my hockey talk for this morning, I wish we could get out and attend more games – we had so much fun at the one we caught earlier this season, it would be a blast to experience that again. Although sitting on the couch holiding hands and talkin’ hockey with my husband-to-be ain’t too shabby at all :p
