Nice game tonight. Interesting how similar and yet so far apart Sam Gagner and Robbie Schremp are, as both are about the same size, have good hands and aren't the fastest skaters and yet Schremp is still banging his head against a wall trying to make the team. From what I saw tonight, the guy really needs to get some first-step acceleration and a better sense of what to do when he doesn't have the puck. I don't think he played poorly though, as he had some chances, and I guess it's a bit unfair to compare him to Gagner. Theo Peckham had another solid game, along with Fernando Pisani and hell, even Dustin Penner. Although it wasn't his best night, Lubbie Visnovsky had a bag of tricks that included some nice tip passes on the powerplay. Sheldon Souray was actually really good defensively. And for the second game in a row in which he's listed on the roster, I never noticed Ryan O'Marra. Not even once.
