A VERY interesting way to kick things off. I have a feeling this game will look like Game No. 8 of last spring's playoffs. Fleury. Bryzgalov. Martin. Very few changes on either side.

These two teams bring out the best AND WORST in each other, which is why it is always so compelling. I don't think either team can help but get caught up in the rivalry. And that's why the defense looks like a jailbreak.

What I want to see early is if Simon Despres can be Kris Letang's 'Karl Alzner'. He's not a classic stay-at-home D but he needs to be Letang's defensive conscience. Pinch when you can, play an all-round game but he MUST take care of his own end. The way he played against Jagr in the playoffs last spring has me encouraged.

As for Tangradi, well I drafted Matt Cooke in my fantasy league for a reason. I give Bylsma 2 games before banishing him to Line 4.
