O'Sullivan didn't really impress me, but it's only one game, and it seemed like he was still getting his legs underneath him. Had two breakaway chances where he definately showed his speed, but couldn't bury them.
Bernier is fast! His side to side lateral movement is incredible. I wasn't a big fan of him at #11 this year, but man, he's definately playing to change my opinion of him.
Lukacevic is Craig Johnson part two. And not in the bad way. Serious wheels, and will be a pretty good pk'er.
Cammalleri had a decent chance but missed wide. It was weird seeing him as the ceter on the PP, with Conroy on the wing.
Everyone else was pretty invisible aside from Cowan getting beaten up.
Agree with most of this. I think Kopitar is ready to play with the big club. Not so sure about O'Sullivan. I was really surprised at how small O'Sullivan was. He's barely bigger than Cammy.
Speaking of Cammy, he really need to stop trying to shoot EVERY shot from one knee. In warmups, that's all he was doing.
Gleason looked terrible. He turned it over in our zone a bunch of times and looked clueless on the Shark goals. I was a little shocked by how bad he played.
All in all, a very lackluster performance.
