I also think tonight highlights how badly we need to go out and keep a bottom pairing defenceman... someone who's likeable/good in the locker room, because this young team seems to get along and be having fun. Wiercioch, as much as I like him 2+ years from now, as a 4-5th, is so incredibly not ready for a full season. Having Benoit here at all is already a stretch. Phillips has stunk; Gonchar not much better. Please, Murray, go out and get another defenceman. We are going to look ridiculous at the back end against a good team, honestly.
Other than that - wow, Silfverberg. This guy has "it". Period.
Methot - is this how he played in Columbus? Is it unrealistic to expect him to keep up this level of play?
Generally, we have to keep in mind that Florida played a god-awful game tonight, and we played, say, average, which was enough to win. Tighten it up!
Dear god, it's been a long time... gotta get rid of David Roundleaf #7!
Really? Regin is an incredibly smart player, if anything one of his best attributes is his hockey smarts. He almost scored a great goal off a long-cycling play late in the third that shifted the momentum our way temporarily after Florida showed signs of pressure. He has an incredible active stick and stopped 3-4 rushes using effective stick-timings.
Gonchar has been really good. I do agree we need another but Lundin is coming back soon, that'll be huge help. If we do struggle in the upcoming 5 games in a week, I see Murray making a move but we haven't allowed a single goal even-strength yet. I don't know what else you'd expect, no matter who we were facing. That's solid defensive coverage. For the time being, we are fine. Maybe in the longer run but that gives us chance to play Bishop and raise his value in the mean-time.
