I am not worried, I tend to put things into perspective after three pre-season games. There are a lot of positives:

1. Some younger players are looking promising;

2. We are keeping the opposing shots way down (3-0 in outshooting opponents);

3. Theo is getting better and more confident;

4. We have only lost three games by a combined three goals (but who cares, it's still only preseason and doensn't count in the standings); and

5. The Hossa-Ribs-Zed line looks to have some good chemistry going early on, picking up where they left off last season.

And, there are a few things to work on:

1. Better finishing in front of the net;

2. Better penetration of the offensive zone during the PP;

3. Better execution on the PP; and

4. Better generation of offence on 5-on-5 scenarios.

That's why they have coaches, practices and still a whack of pre-season hockey left to practice all of the above. Enjoy the Laurentians boys and get some of those little kinks worked out away from the media frenzy!!
