    Almquist was interesting last night! Offensive talent, but I thought he played a lot bigger than $1.70 in his own end. If he can add 20-30 pounds he could be good (in the future).

    I was at the game. Schneider exuded confidence in net. Really impressive.

    Schneider looks great. He’s happy the fans like him. But the funny thing is, the fans in Vancouver LOVED him. I wish I had that problem. Gotta love that dig At him by AV “most of the shots were not screened”
