Am I one of the few who actively expected Neuvirth to get opening night?

He played better than Vokoun in the preseason so there's that (plus Vokoun is a slow starter). He's an established part of the team with a future here, so if there's any sentimentality to the home opener he's a bigger part of it. And even if you think Vokoun will give you the better performance at this point in the season, why use him on opening night vs. the Canes when you face two vastly better teams in the Bolts and Pens immediately afterwards?

This seemed like an easy call to me.

Now, as to whether BB is being too hush-hush about his plans even to the goalies themselves...
