Max Noreau: Hey Now, You're An All Star

As promised, here's my story over at the mothership on Max Noreau. There's talk of the All Star game selection. Of the push for the playoffs. And how he's aware that the perceived weakness in his game is his defensive play and that he's been working hard that, with the hopes that the Wild will give him a chance.

So give it a read. Hopefully you'll like it.

A great story on Max Noreau; no Aero represents the character of the Team better.

BTW, it would be very imformative to Aeros Fans if the "Triumvirate", once in a while, might focus on the relative successes of Aeros who have been called up to the WILD.

Case-in-point: Anton Khudobin (the WILD players call him BORAD) won again, last night at Edmonton facing 30+ shots, improving his record to 4-1-0 with a sparkling GAA below 1.50 and a Save Pct above 93%. He nearly achieved his second straight NHL shutout (extending over 140 minutes of scoreless play) until the Oilers got a PP goal on their last of 8 PP attempts in the waning moments of the Third period.

Todd Richards, without hesitation, declared that AK was the primary factor in the WILD victory, and the Oilers Media recognized him as the Star-of-the game.

Case-in-point: Clayton Stoner was, once again, one of the ice-time leaders (with Burns and Schultz) and, once again, a Rock on defense. Jared Spurgeon got significant ice-time, while Cody Almond did not play.

Go Aeros!
