The New ‘Lemieux’

from Al Balderas of Ducks Blog at the OC Register,

The Ducks created a lot of memorable moments during their six-game series victory over the San Jose Sharks but not many of them stood out more than the first goal scored by Bobby Ryan in Game 4.

Ryan took a pass from Ryan Getzlaf, skated into the slot and faked out Jonathan Cheechoo before beating goalie Evgeni Nobokov to give the Ducks a 1-0 lead.

“It’s so awesome to watch,” said Ryan’s teammate Teemu Selanne. “And I have the best seat in the house from the bench. I just need a beer.”...

Selanne compared Ryan, at this stage of his career, with Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux. Lemieux scored 690 goals and had more than 1,000 assists during his 17-year NHL career.

“He reminds of me Mario, when Mario came into the league,” Selanne said. “You can’t take the puck away from him. He’s so big and strong, and his reach is so good. And then you add all the skills that he has.”
