My thoughts:

Enstrom and Buff were great. The rest of the defense was average to poor and they had problems moving the puck up the ice. We really need Bogosian back asap.

LLW were very quiet.

I like Burmie's game for the most part today, was very strong defensively and on the pk. He was also keeping things more simple in the offensive zone which was good. Biggest issue was his decision making on the pp, still has a way to go in that regard.

Anto and Poni were both solid.

Slater and Thorborn were ok as well.

Scheifele had a solid game. I though he was a bit nervous early and was boubling the puck a bit but got noticably better as the game went on. Is quicker and and stronger, but needs to work on keeping his feet moving. It may be best to keep him up here so that he can work day in day out with the Jets training staff to work on his strength and balance.

The Kane line seemed pretty disjointed to me. Jokininen was missfireing on all of his passes today (lets hope its a rust/familiarity problem) and Kane's hands let him down on a couple of occasions. Wellwood was pretty invisable.
