I know that I wasn't alone on that one. Definitely need an upgrade.
Still hopeful with Tangradi, but that one may (I think 'will', but I'll reserve judgment) need an upgrade.
I'll say this again, having watched Geno last year and this first game. There's a noticeable difference in his defensive play. I haven't seen him backtrack on the play and protect his net like that since the cup year. And, frankly, while the explosiveness wasn't there and there weren't a ton of chances, I thought he never really tried to force anything. As I wrote earlier, I think Paul Maurice's influence shows, and that's a good thing.
