Gus has looked ok in my opinion, one of the few D men who has on a consistent basis, but he has still made some awful plays a few times. Of the 5 games I have seen, in the first few Syvret looked great going forward, but in the 2 before this one he looked pretty bad at times.

Manning has looked good at times but like he is trying to do too much at others.

Lauridsen has looked ok, he is enormous, but sometimes caught flat footed.

Eddy and Dimmen have looked pretty awful most of the time!

Bourdon has been extremely disappointing, just has not looked himself in the games I saw, getting beaten very easily at times.
