I was at the game also and I was looking at for my favorite dmen but they weren't playing (Komisarek,Hainsey Sourray)

So i had to settle on Traverse (oh my god the guy sucks). The best dman out there was bouillon. Was it MArkov's first pre-season game? cause he wasn't that dominant...

As for the forwards, I really liked the fact that CJ put Higgins and Ward together to kill penalties...Maybe to replace Juneau and Dackell someday? Higgins didn't play a lot but waht I've seen of him is that he plays very well in the defensive zone, he's a real center (meaning he takes his man and helps the dmen getting the puck out). I would be very suprised to see Perezhogin starting the year in montreal. PLekanec was ok but he is kinda small...I just can't see our top 3 centers under 6 feet in 2-3 years from now (Koivu, RIbs, Plecks).

One last thing...Sylvain Blouin...come on!!! why is he here? he was cherry pickin on the red line in the first period!!!! Dwyer is a much better hockey player than Blouin.
