A style is developing

Last night against the Cup champs the team looked pretty darn good; for 7 minutes. For 30 minutes they looked liked they belonged on the same ice as the champs. and for 23 minutes and two costly and or unfortunate mistakes they looked like a work in process. These are a few of the things I took away from the 1-2 loss. Here are some other statements based on last nights performance.

Thomas played well and could not be faulted on the two duck strickes.

What and why is the message of no ice time being delivered to Bochenski and is it good that he looked perturbed on the bench?

When will Muzz get a point, as one of our top forwards we should be seeing more production!

Savards health is going to be critical to the above.

Face off specialist, will one emerge?

Outshot again, not a good trend.

Bergeron looks like he is on the verge of breaking out, but needs to find chemistry with someone in this line up. Same can be said for Kessel.

Lastly if they can take one of the two upcoming games to go 2-3 on the road trip, I think they have done as well as could be expected. If they take the next 2 well then we have set some potential for actually becoming excited. If they lose both, well perhaps we are looking at another long year. My prediction is they will take the game from the Kings and lose to Big Jose. So far I like what I see but for a succesful season some of these peices will need to really start clicking.

- Chara looked bad on the game winner; out muscled twice in our own end before the goal was scored.

- Timmy looked good.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict the reverse.
