2 Posts and bad mental errors at the wrong time.

Sure, they didn't play a great game - but neither did Pittsburgh. To me its been more about mental errors, PP play and sustaining their battle level that's been evident in most of the losses. Those things are correctable and come with time.

Of course it hurts losing Cally, some guys are under performing not putting the puck in the net and they could use another deft forward, but I dont think they are a bad hockey team - especially when 80% of the team is back from last year and they added Nash.

It would be nice if this was happening in a full season instead of shortened one. I really think a Torts' style team relies heavily on a full training camp and when you dont have that you build as you go. We may see 2 good games followed by a dud, and then 3 or 4 decent ones followed by another. I think a lot of teams are going through that.

Its going to be a battle all season, just get to the dance.
