Positives:

Cole is playing great and I think is a great leader by example... All those ''size doesn't matter'' claims from last year are looking silly.

DD is really gaining confidence BIG time and is adapting really to big d-men... very smart and crafty.

Gomez is getting angry, which is what I think will be his marginal turn-around

We're getting production from our top players

We're a lot more aggressive with the puck -- give credit when it's due, good job coaching staff.

Our young D are getting better, not worse... healthy competition... it's going to be tough if all our vets get healthy, and stay healthy

The buzz is back at the bell, and the team is having fun again


Negatives:

We lack toughness and grit on our bottom 6 and D.

I want Darche to succeed, but White gets his spot once he's healthy.

Eller is showing signs of being too Danishy ... great culture, but a bit soft in hockey.

Darche, but if we can trade him
You really have an obsession against this guy, a bottom line forward who is doing his best. Not great, but not as terrible as you might think.
