The Bad and the Ugly were pretty obvious, but on the positive side, there were a few bright spots.

The Good (or at the very least, mediocre)

** Ellis so far looks like an improvement over humpy-dawg.

** Our third "center" - Jussi Jokinen - was 9 for 12 on faceoffs.

** The Faulk and Pitkanen pairing was really good. Faulk is going to be a legit top d-man, and Pitkanen must have been playing somewhere during the lock-out, because, unlike the rest of the vets, his speed and timing were right on the money.

** Skinner should be back to rookie season form. After the third or fourth Panthers goal, he started trying to dipsy doodle around and do too much by himself, but at least he looks like he is fully recovered from last seasons injuries.

** Most of the AHL kids looked pretty good
