My takeaways:

- The PK has to be the work of Thompson. It's so suffocating and high-pressure, yet could still handle a four-minute stretch. Great change this season.

- I noticed that much of the team was very heavy on their sticks when playing the puck. Resulted in much better puck control, good separation from defenders and decreased take-aways.

- Grabner is our new superstar. Not because he's fast, or because he's scoring, but because he is important in every situation on the ice.

- They've got to get Okposo off JT's line. He's just not effective and it's dragging JT down. Give Aucoin a chance there.

- I wonder where we'd be right now if the Finley experiment hadn't happened, and Hickey was in the line-up from Day One. Glad to have Hickey aboard.
