Yeo is the man

Ego management will be at a high with this team, I find it funny that the coach has the likely first line combo of Koivou, Parise and Heatley and my second line center is Grandlund, how much is all of that talk for the ego of the player versus what is best to win a hockey game. Parise in New Jersey was not playing on a line with Mister Kovelchuck, he was quite effective with Mister Langenbruer and other ham and egger type players.... Think Koivou wants hear he is playing with ham and egger linemates like Parise did in New Jersey : ) ..... This game is obsessed with naming 1st, 2nd,3rd, 4th lines, look at the Gophers hockey team, their best player is a guy we call a second line center Erik Haula and we are just shocked as the dickens when Christian Isackson a 4th line center has so much talent and is making such wonderful great plays...... I think I have made my point but I also am identifying Yeo's biggest challenge, calling Grandlund a center with size and lack of speed seem puzzling to Mister Know it all, Fletcher has got some talent on this team... YEAH BUT !

This just in: The Honeymoon is over, Yeo. Playoffs are an expectation from now on, not an aberration. Just sayin.
