Gorges-Diaz much better 2nd pairing.

Markov is a magic man.

Galchenyuk-Gallagher got used like Desharnais-Pouliot in 2011, very effective against depth.

Slot Eller and Subban back into the penalty kill they'll be a lot stronger.

A lot of people focus on how tough the 4th line is. I think its more important that they are all decent hockey players.

Nokelainen's job is gone. White has taken it.

A healthy squad is a lot better than an injury ridden wreck.


Price has been fantastic.


Don't read too much into the game though. Florida wasn't a playoff worthy team last year, are worse this year and in a tough spot.
Florida was a good team last year, still a good team, even with their best player injured and one of their top 4 D. too.

Agreed. He gave the only goal of the game though.
