Do you remember this team? (October 5, 2006)

These 19 players saw ice time against the Caps for the season opener at MSG 2 years ago:

M. Cullen
J. Jagr
M. Nylander
B. Shanahan
M. Straka
J. Ward
M. Hossa
B. Betts
A. Hall
P. Prucha
N. Dawes
R. Hollweg

M. Malik
K. Rachunek
M. Rozsival
A. Ward
F. Tyutin
T. Pock

H. Lundqvist

By my count, two seasons later we are returning only 4 of 12 forwards (assuming Hollweg is back) and 1 of 6 defensemen. When you add Lundqvist, that makes 6 of 19 still around. Simply stated...more than 2/3 of our team has turned over in 2 seasons.

By the way, we won 5-2, with Jagr, Shanny, and Straka accounting for 4 of our 5 goals. Jagr scored our first goal of the season on the first shot of the game only 29 seconds in. A fun night at the Garden.
