In Response to Re: Krejci
[QUOTE]xenimus...really? You can say that about just about any skilled play at any time. One of the ways you recognize a skilled player is the ability to make difficult or higher risk plays successfully and more often than your average NHLer. Krejci has 13 points in 11 games in February, Lucic has 12 in 11, Horton has 11 and even though 5 of that came in one game, it's still enough to suggest he's coming around. Last night, he carried the puck a lot more than he has of late, he moved with more purpose, and he made decisions more quickly than he has most of the year. All of those things are connected to using the time and space his wingers create effectively, so...what more were you waiting for? As for Krejci being a concussion waiting to happen...would you prefer he were timid? Unwilling to attempt plays because he might get pasted? C'mon....

You just mis-read everything i just said.
**Paraphrase** for Bookboy:
Krejci has been playing better of late. Has to show more in regards to being a 1st line guy playing with top players. I love his game over that last 8 or so, has been more consistant. Needs to improve strength to battle bigger (better) d-men in NHL. Good talent, smart player, room to grow.
**So, where did i downgrade Krejci? I gave the guy a compliment! Only because i state he's weakness? I point out Bergeron's weakness all the time. He (Bergeron) and Kesler are very similar player but Kesler is more explosive because of his world-class speed. Not jumping on Krejci what so ever. I love Krejci and maybe i am hard on him at times because i think he can be a 70pt+ player but at times he's a ghost out there. I agreed with everyone here, he had a MONSTER game!!! Can't people be judgemental anymore even in-light of a great performance?
What? Let me guess, you won't trade Krejci for Crosby?...Seriously, you acting as if im bashing the kid, he may have the best "talent" on the team IMO.
