I'm surprised nobody mentioned Lauridsen playing well. Not that it means much because every other defender was pretty bad in this game but he was the only dman that I was impressed with tonight. I was surprisingly impressed by his play at the end last year and he seems to have built onto that. He is poised with the puck (as far as get it out of his own end and finding teammates when forechecking pressure is on), confident and plays well defensively, he was probably the bright spot for me in this game as far as gauging expectations for these players.

Cousins really played well (brought much of our offense almost single handedly) but you still could see he has to learn the all around game. I thought Laughton played well in the first but wasn't too noticeable after that.

The Leafs made some good pickups this offseason, they may end up being a scary team with their skill, experience and toughness.

Man it's great to have Hockey back with a full season to look forward too.
