Except for Yandle. I love the guy, but it's becoming pretty hard to defend. He needs to get his confidence back. I wonder if he lost a little bit of swagger when OEL became the new hotness.
Moss has been a huge-ass upgrade on Pyatt so far.
Derek Morris was so god damn good. Thankfully, he's been there to bail Yandle's ass out.
The flashes are there with Lombardi, like Yandle, I think his confidence is pretty low after what the past 2 years have been like for him. He played well, though.
These past 3 games have reminded me of how talented Vrbata is. He's much more than a byproduct of Whitney.
Always nice when OEL and Boedker have good games. Does anybody remember which game in the series it was when they got into it with Kane and Toews? I loved that moment.
I don't like #8 on Lombardi. It just looks weird, it almost feels like he's playing half-naked (yes, I'm weird). I think he should have gone with #51, he missed a grand opportunity to go Price is Right on Vermette. Also, with the roster moves and number changes, it's been hard for me not to get Sullivan, Korpikoski, and Stone confused. It doesn't really help that Korpikoski and Stone look a teensy bit similar with their helmets on from far away.
Also, I'm really quite fond of the FSAZ production. I really like McConnell and Nash. I'm pretty love/hate with Todd Walsh and I thought he was pretty tolerable tonight.
I thought Yandle played his best game tonight. He got stronger as the game went on. He was moving his feet and started to shoot the puck. He has a great shot, wish he would stop the fake slap shot and just shoot it more often.
