Has there ever been such a dynamic and enthusiastic prospect as Nathan Gerbe before? Last night he potted 3 goals to lead Portland over Worcester.
It isn’t just his scoring or his disproportionate size to most other players that makes him shine, but rather his Favre like enthusiasm approach to the game.
This is really the difference between Ovechkin and Crosby, one plays with a smile on his face and the other seems to sour his mood after every play. With Gerbe you get talent, determination, along with a brilliant smile. You just have to see him play to believe it - he’s not just punching a work ticket each time he gets on the ice, but rather the arena seems to be where he comes to life.
