When he comes back a little more confident I think we'll see great things from him. Watching Stefan handle the puck as opposed to watching someone like Zanon handle the puck is the difference between watching a sports car make hairpin turns on a road vs. a dump truck. I think with EJ, Wilson, Barrie, and SOB on the blueline we at least have competent puckhandling skills.

Hunwick puts in a full effort, which is why I like him as a 6/7 guy, but his mental game is still ridiculously bad. Still makes abhorrently dumb mistakes out there at least once a game. In the end, I hope he's traded this season...just my opinion as a fan, he's just too frustrating to watch.

McGinn frankly wasn't clicking with Stastny either, but was with Duchene for a short time. We'll see what happens. I know others have said it won't work but I'd like to see what a McPing/O'Reilly line could do.
McGinn was clicking with Stastny early in the season when he rattled 8 shots off the iron from Stastny feeds.
