Morning Quote: Justin Abdelkader

From mLive

“I have confidence in myself that I can play with those guys and keep up and skate with them.  The best part is I don’t really have to change too much. Just kind of play the same type of game.  You’re counted on more to score and get chances. You’re playing with really skilled guys. I’ve always had that put on my shoulders throughout my career, so it’s nothing too new.”

He’s been bouncing around from the fourth line with Drew Miller, Brad May, and Kirk Maltby, to the second line with Dan Cleary and Todd Bertuzzi.  He seems to be fitting in at both roles…a pleasant surprise.

It’s going to be tough trimming this lineup once our stars start getting healthy.

Oh and I hate the three point game (Dallas lost in OT last night).  And Vancouver let me down (lost to Nashville).
