I was very impressed with the team tonight. I totally understand it was pre-season but I like the compete level I saw. My overall impression is as such:
Scheifele- I was
impressed with him tonight, overall he played a good balanced game and was a player to note every shift. I kept saying to people in my section "I don't think he's ready to be an NHL player
it's tough to send someone down who does nothing but produce".
Antropov- Started slow. His lack of speed was evident. He looked to me like he was trying to make the right plays but his execution was off. In the third I thought he really stepped up and played well.
Byfuglien- Really impressed me. Made some poor defensive choices, but came to play. He looked like he was on another level offensively and was in his element at the point. Loved how he set the tone and was a physical force the entire game. Also doesn't hurt that he was at times having some fun with my section and chatting with those of us close to the boards.
Stuart- Loved him. Solid defensively, great leader. Not a flashy player, but very meat and potatoes.
Burmistrov- Great hands. 'Nuff said.
Pavs- Played well when called upon. I think he's on the right track to having a very solid year.
Bogosian- I was looking for signs of hope from him, and was not disappointed. He wasn't perfect, but he definitely looked like he was a step a head of the talent level on the ice. I feel good about him coming away from the game.
I could go on all night but I'll stop there.
