Can't say im surprised by the outcome. The first period was REALLY bad.
Amart and VV should not be paired together. Put DD and Amart together until Willies back. Scuds can play with VV. I actually liked how Drewiske played. Greene looked awful on the 3rd goal, but that's not normal for Greene. I'll chalk that up to it being the first game of the year.
Richards, Brown & Gagne were our worst line, by far.
I liked Penner games. I liked his compete level. Total 180 from the way he played last regular season.
Trevor Lewis was great. From the drop of the puck he was forechecking like always does, with tenacity.
Our 4th line was brilliant. I have a VERY good feeling about the Clifford/Nolan combo. They're both young, mobile, finish checks, intelligent and aren't foreign to the scoring areas. There's absolutely no reason this line won't be getting regular shifts all year long.
It's amazing how Mitchell's presence is missed on the back end. He is to our defense as Kopi is to our offense. I hope they come back soon.
