Ok, I finally have a problem with Burns...and it ain't the way the team is
reacting to him. Clearly, he is having no problems in his second year,
with people tuning him out.
My problem lies with the lineup - does Rassmusen really deserve to be in
it right now? I'm sorry, but you have to have Berglund in there. When you
have a player that has been that hot, you absolutely have to leave him in,
all due respect to Grant Marshall. But actually, Marshall should be in -
as should Rupp. Rupp was playing just fine...and then he's out of the
lineup. He's using his body, on a regular basis, for the first time in,
like, ever, and he's out of the lineup. Eric! Sit the F down. Christian,
get your ass in there! Rupp and Marsh, you guys get in there too! Surely
we can find someone other than Berglund to take out to fit Rupp and
Marshall. Since Larionov will be sitting tonight, I'd personally like to
see a line of Elias-Rupp-Berglund.
BTW - Ventolo - this is how I want Elias to be playing. Every game. He has
the ability...and you held Holik to that standard, that of playing at his
best every night, so I'm holding Elias to it. But of course, I'm greedy -
so I want 90 pts!
And once again, thank god for Larionov. And Andy Capps Hot Fries. Yeah!!
