I am upset with Downie for that ******** second penalty. It's the first game back, and no one really took any liberties against him in the game, how is he loosing his cool already??? Really concerning.

Also upset that Duchene continues to be a chemistry vaccum. No one can read off him or get into a groove. He just demands the puck to make plays, but then makes stupid decisions. He either tries to stick handle through two or three guys, or thread a needle on a cross rink hard pass through two or three guys.

I don't understand why anybody hasn't sat him down and told him he NEEDS to simplify his game if he wants to get better, and if they have I don't understand why he doesn't listen.
Duchene and PAP had good chemistry. I was actually pleased with it. Duchene wants the puck on his stick the entire game. That is why I said put McGinn on Duchene's line and move Landy to Stastny's. Stastny is the only one on his line that can carry the puck. All 3 on Dutchy's can. Landy is going to be under-utilized playing with Dutch and I think him and Stas would possibly be even better than RoR.
