The defensive duo of Byfuglien and Oduya could have performed in a Gilbert and Sullivan comic operetta.
I watch Vancouver as my second team and while they may be the most talented team in the league, they don't look like they'd be able to beat the Habs or a contending team right now. Its the start of the season and everyone is running into the mental traps of small sample sizes. Many people here assume that these calamities only afflict the Habs. I assure you, they do not. Wait 20 games before saying at "blank" player or "blank" team is good or bad this year, simply say weather they had a good or bad game because that's all you have sufficent information to comment upon. At this point an 8-1 win while outshoting 55-12 or 1-8 loss while outshot 12-55 would not sway me in either direction. Because these are single games in a season of 82.
