The guys who have been playing hockey during the lockout looked decent and the guys who were doing informal skates at RCI looked rusty. Plus, the chemistry is obviously not there yet. They looked like the keystone cops out there a number of times with players running into each other, passes in the skates, poor coverage etc. Honestly, with the significant number of changes to the line-up and the short training camp, that's not too surprising.

The good news, is that is that both of those are easily correctable with more time playing together. The bad new, is that with a shortened season, they don't have much time to get it sorted out.

The defense playing terrible also isn't a surprise to me as I've been beating that drum back during free agency before the season. I know it won't happen, but I'd love for Muller to park Corvo in the press box. If we are going to be terrible at defense anyhow, at least let Sanguinetti and McBain have a chance to dry and develop some at the NHL level.
