Popular Post The Listening Posted October 18, 2021 Popular Post Share Posted October 18, 2021 I know we're only 3 games into the season, so I may be getting a little ahead of myself here. I just wanted to state that OEL and Garland have been two standouts of the team so far in the young season. OEL, as of right now, looks crisp, he's playing with a ton of emotion and standing up for teammates in scrums. If this is the guy we are going to have for the next seven years, I will gladly take it. Based on what everyone was saying about his declining play prior to the start of the season did have me worried, but man, he really showed to the regular season. I'm not saying he hasn't made mistakes, I just want to focus on the positives that he has brought to the table. I never expected OEL to be able to play with the amount of emotion that he has shown so far. I'm glad we have a Swedish defenceman that can bring some flare to the back end. I loved Edler but he was way too monotonus for me. Garland has already won my heart as a fan. He plays a lot like how Burrows used to play, but Garland has a lot more skill than Burrows did. That celly he scored against Detroit yesterday was insane. And top of that, he was able to agitate the entire Red Wings bench. His speed, tenacity and drive every shift has been invigorating to watch. Even though the games have not exactly gone our way so far, the games have all been entertaining, and these two are big reasons why. I'm looking forward to our next game already!!! 15 9 3 1 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
