Granted that guys like Aucoin and Strait played extremely well because they just played hockey. They are guys that are showing a lot of hustle also because they are "hungry" players. I'm not that sure Lubo really wants to be here.

Players that know the system and were in physical shape like Frans, Grabner, Hamonic, MacDonald along with players who know the system from Bridgeport like Ullstrom and McDonald also played well.

Hockey is a game of trust and if you know where Streit or Frans are on the ice it's more efficient than not being sure of where a new person will be.
