Watched a couple games, Nielsen looked rusty despite playing during lockout, very dissapointing!!!
Boedker looked good, but his line looks akward...
Larsen played solid, though not trusted with as many minutes as last year..
Hansen was solid as always...
Regin has gotten 9 and 10mins TOI, mostly on the 3rd and 4th lines, he's done for !!!
Sorry but to me, the trend for the danes in the NHL is a downward one....
Its still too early to say if the trend is going up or down, but its certainly not the start we were hoping for.
Whether Eller is benched because they want to trade or the coach just dislikes his "lazy" game and want to send him a message to work much harder or he is used as a scapegoat we will probably very soon find out.
At least Bødker, Larsen and Hansen was solid. So a little good news before we all reach collective depression
Also surprised to hear that Frans Nielsen should be rusty, but if his offence fails (he did only score 4 goals for Lukko) he is still really good as a defensive 3'rd liner.
Regin has been injured so long that Ottawa's probably dont really have him in their plans before he can show he can be healthy a whole season. But he can keep his chances for next year if he plays well on the 4'th line this season out. One more injury and he is probably history when his contract runs out next year. That he even got a contract for this year clearly shows they are still willing to see if he can turn it around.
