Kreider is lost in a checking role
Boyle is an awful hockey player (sign Gomez, trade BB for a pick) Halpern is a much better player
Nash is dynamic; will be fun to watch
the B's and the Pens took away the clear along the boards and hemmed us in. We need to adjust
Stu cannot play at this level..sorry
Pyatt and Asham looked good in their roles
Staal is struggling big time and Danny G is fighting the puck
MDZ and McD are ready for the season
Richie and Step look slow..although they are spending most of their shifts running around in our zone defending
Cally was much better than Saturday

Torts has the talent; no excuses. He needs to decide on lines and let the chemistry develop. He cannot constantly change them this year. No excuses John. And way too much ice time for Boyle and Bickel. Stralman didn't play enough.
Stralman wasn't very good last night either, although he was worlds better than Stu.
