It's possible that Huby staying in junior as long as he did and playing in the WJC again was the best thing for his development. I take that as a possible positive from the lockout. THat was an incredible NHL debut.

Aside from the names everyone's already talked about, props to Caruso for a solid NHL debut as well. He really surprised me by not making many mistakes. Ellerby played a terrific game as well, that's just what our defense needed last night. Kuba looked a bit out of sorts, but made some good plays as well. A big, rangy, slowish guy like him is going to need a couple games to get in full swing here. Upshall trying his best not to become a compliance buyout, very nice game from him, terrific snipe. Hopefully he can have a big rebound season.

Not every game is going to be that easy, but I'll take it. With 48 games, every win is huge.
