Now, is he a little "rusty"? Maybe or he didn't anticipate the speed of the Artyuhkin and made a mistake which is easily correctable.
Either way, I know I will be keeping a close eye on his play and we'll see where it is when the "real" games start.
FINALLY!!! A voice of reason. I'm not saying the sky is falling and I'm aware its pre season guys. The point is he was BRUTAL as a Sen the past few yrs and these two plays are indicative of his play there. I hated the signing when it was made and this is why. I watched the replay again today and its worse then I thought. On top of 2 big slow F's blowing past him, he also skated right past the rebound that was sitting there. I dont want to be negative but I can't remember a vet d-man getting burned twice in two pre season games that badly by fringe NHLers. Its not like it was Crosby or Ovechkin guys...
