With Danny Gray out of action this week, it was up to Eric T. (that’s @BSH_EricT of Broad St. Hockey fame) and I to hash out how each side felt about their new players. I’m happy to say that Eric was unhappy with the deal – always a good sign. Sorry, Eric.
Follow me over the jump for a few tidbits on how James van Riemsdyk is able to drive the net, win shooting competitions, and play the point on the power play.
I don’t mind saying that this review of van Riemsdyk’s performance in a Flyers’ uniform makes me consider putting his name on the back of a Winter Classic jersey.
