Not a good sign 2 games into the season.

This. It's only been two games, but Getzlaf has been floating around too much in the d zone. When he does get the puck, he stands still and makes a bad breakout pass that usually gets broken up by a forechecker or misses everyone and goes down for icing. He needs to start skating the puck up the ice, he has the ability to stickhandle around people, why not use it?
