[QUOTE=Canadian Chris]Well...how'd he look?

He really looked solid. I can think of only a couple times when he got a little sloppy with his passes and made me nervous. But he seemed so poised and was positioned well all night. He made good decisions in carrying the puck to center and I know he had a couple of real nice steals. The whole team seemed real nervous in the first period but settled down and after leaving Vokoun out to dry early did a nice job of tightening up. Hamhuis and York are a nice duo.

Also, I noticed Hamhuis doing a little yapping with Lupul. I like his shot at sticking around even when Kloucek gets back. He did see both PP and PK time.
Rookie Dmen are going to have to get a lot of ice time with this team....
Schnabel 16+min , Zidlicky 19+ min, Hamhuis 18+min...Brookbank spent all night dancing with Burnett....
But already...Hamhuis,Zidlicky,Schnabel>>>>>>>>Houlder ,Hulse,Delmore
....and throw in Kloucek and I think this D is better than last year easily. And will just get better.
Mistakes ...sure...but a lot more speed and the outlet passes are soooooo much better.
