My 2 cents...

Defense:

Diaz, looked ok.Decent first game in the NHL. He looked over matched more than once, but has good speed to fix his nervous mistakes. He did hit the net with a shot though, good sign. Need small ice experience.

Weber, was never convinced of this guy, but he played a good game. Steady and relaxed. Missed the net on every shot attempt.

Yemelin, was out of position a few times, but had the skill, speed and aggressiveness to be a player. I am happy he did not suck.

Woywitka, best Habs D on the ice last night. Decent in his end, physical enough, good in the offensive zone. Looks like a NHL'r.

Tinordi, needs more seasoning. I give him a pass, and send him to the OHL.

Gill, played like a vetern without his partner. Not his best game.

Forwards of note:

Cam/Plek/Cole - looks good. Sharp short passes. Nose for the net.
AK- great game. No matter what any fool at RDS says.
Palushaj- ok, looks like AHL to me.
Masse, Willsie, Berger - AHL
Blunden - size, speed, not much else.
Trotter - looked like Schremp, all sizzle, no steak
Engvist- just a shadow

Overall, I think that Woywitka was the only surpirse. He impressed me, he looked as good as Hamrlik.
