    I'd say he definitely drove a lot of the pressure they put on Vegas after we pulled Howard. That was impressive.

    I don't see where there's any room for negativity after such a great regulation loss.

    Using his adjusted stats Primeau still had a 28 goal and two 26 goal seasons in Detroit, a 66 point year, a 50 point year and a 73 point season, with solid physical play.

    Youre going to complain about getting ~60 points, good defensive play and physicality from Rasmussen? You have your bar set too high if thats the case. Either that or you just used a bad example

    He was a force tonight, could ahad 3 more points. Glad he got that cheesy assist at the end of the game because he deserved more points than he had. Best game as a wing for sure

    From some of the discussion during the game, it sounds like it might be a concussion.

    What I liked about Rasmussen's play is that he wasn't just trying to capitalize on rebounds and deflections, but was also able to pass the puck and set up scoring chances for others from in front of the net.

    Shades of Tri-City. Popping off wrist shots and imposing his will/showing his soft hands in front of the net. This is his game, he got full contact on that pass over to Vanek and he knew where he was going with it.

    Rasmussen looked really good. Aside from his net front play, there was one dump in late in the game where he showed some speed on the forecheck that has me excited. That is what I saw in the preseason games and has been lacking in the real games so far. Hopefully he keeps that up.

    On another note, it's been a few games now with Mantha playing the shooting spot on the powerplay like everyone has always wanted. I don't think (??) any goals have resulted from that setup yet. Maybe the coaches were right all along?

    If William Shatner and Christopher Walken had a lovechild that went into broadcasting, it would be John Keating.

    The Wings...have played...much better...of late...and they attribute...much...of...their...success...to...

    Argh. His delivery is like ten miles of bad road.

    Mantha refuses to shoot the puck it seems when he probably has the best shot on the team. It makes no sense to me.

    One thing I noticed too is he actually was carrying the puck at times. He hasnt done that a lot this year. He'll chip it down low and work with it below the goal line but not through the neutral zone much or over the blue line. H had 7 shots on goal last night and a big part of that was being confident with carrying the puck into shooting positions.

    It would be nice if he cold have a strong finish to the season, going into next year

    Good to hear Ras had a nice showing. I really think he can be a force when he gets a bit stronger and more comfortable with the pace of the league.

    Thought that was AA’s best game in ages. So dangerous every shift. 12 shot attempts. Hopefully he can keep that up cause the goals will follow.
