I thought it looked like... A preseason game. Oh my god!

Seriously though, it wasn't that bad. A couple of moments of bad coverage during preseason isn't something unexpected playing in a new system. What I was most concerned about was the way the team plays in the offensive zone now. I like the amount of chaos they created in the 1st and 2nd periods. The active defenseman is definitely noticeable. All 6 of them seemed more willing to shoot the puck than they did last year.

Right now, of our 5 young forwards vying for spots in the lineup, Kreider is playing the worst. The other 4 (Fast, Lindberg, Hrivik, Kristo) are all at the same level. Pyatt was invisible. Asham was terrible. Powe I thought had another good game, for what he is. Mashinter looked good.

Staal looks comfortable. Del Zotto looked decent aside from going out of position on the first goal. Moore and Stralman looked very good. Falk was okay. Bickel was bad.
