i was impressed with McRae wednesday when i saw him.. and he didn't disappoint today. I wonder how much of it was playing with Oshie.. either way he looked a step above any of the other forwards in my opinion.
It's not just playing with Oshie. McRae did all the things you want from a center. Won face-offs, back-checked well, found open space near the net repeatedly, buried two chances and had at least two others. Yes, Oshie helped get him the puck for chances, but without being in the right place that wouldn't have mattered.
Sonne for the Blue team looked real good, too.
If anyone was actually there, what did they think of the defenseman wearing #56, Brett Ponich? Davidson and Kekalainen couldn't stop slobbering about him in their interviews when asked which new player impressed them the most.
