It's strange, everyone calls out Okposo after one game. Where was Moulson today? He looked pretty bad in my opinion.
Moulson had at least half a dozen chances, nothing wrong with how he played. As far as Okposo trying to be fancy, he always does that because he has the mentality of a great player, tries to fake out everyone. IF he played simple power forward hockey, he'd be a very good player.
Was impressed with Aucoin again, he's the best face off man we've had in a while, has some good wheels, and is a good passer. Also, despite his size, isn't afraid to get to the tough areas and get his nose dirty.
Ullstrom has a lot of talent. I think given the time he could be a 20+ goal scorer easily. He's like A bigger Grabner with size and grit, love the way he plays the game. It's gonna be fun to see him and Sundstrom play together for years on the third line.
Hamonic looks great. Such a smart player defensively, AND you can see he wants to get more involved offensively now.
It was an enjoyable game to watch, it was shocking to see the Isles not blow it, MAYBE we are seeing a different team.
