Ullstrom obviously worked on his stick handling skills because he was making guys look sill all night. Just needs to work on his finishing.
Ness was the best D-Man out there tonight, needs to work on his defense responsibilities but he was highly noticeable.

The Bad
Calvin De Haan maybe he was trying too hard but made mental mistakes, passed when he should have shot and made crucial mistake with the goaltender pulled buy flubbing the puck with seconds to go, causing a turnover.
Ty Wishart was awful! Doesn't use his size (which we all knew) but was out of position and anyone at the game will remember how he lazily skated back into his zone to get a dumped in puck and was beaten by a Portland player who came inches away from scoring because Wishart panicked and skated right into Poulin.

I know its the first game, but they have to be better out there. Too many little mental mistakes out there.

Thanks for the report!

Sad to hear about Wishart. Seems like a kid who my really have been crushed by not having made the Isles? Some don't always go down and respond well....

AWESOME! But Hollweg now moves way up on my S$%&list after that late punch when the refs were in breaking it up. It was obvious that the fight was over then.
