Salo with a big blast from the point. Steady play from Hamhuis as always, infact, he looks a little faster (is that just me?). Great pressure from the twins and burr with a surprising jump up or two by Andrew Alberts; the regulars look ready and the kids look alright.
I liked Hodgson and Sturm getting a chance late in the game on the Power Play. With injuries we need to see what CoHo can do. Once we got the two man advantage after that it was nice to see CoHo back out and Samuelson looked very good dishing the puck. Mikael is going to be a very big part of our early success.
Aaron Rome will be missed. I was really happy with his play down the stretch last year but I'm really looking forward to seeing Tanev and Sauve stepping up in his absence. Yet again I'm left wondering how much more depth can we have on the back end???? scary.
And then there's Luongo. Will somebody please get him a longer stick? How many times do we have to see pucks roll between his pads as his stick flips up?
No doubt we'll be slow out of the gates with Lou's notorious early season struggles and two-thirds of our second line out, but I'm really excited to see the kids and new additions.
