of the new guys, only Nystrom stood out to me. I thought Cullen was useless.

Pierre McGuire said that there's some scuttlebut that the pad decrease will hurt big goalies the most, and cited "exhibit A" in Pekka Rinne last night. I don't know if it was the pads, but he looked extremely slow and uncomfortable.

I thought Josi, Bartley, and Klein all looked a little rough last night. Those last two in particular.

Agree that Wilson and Bourque were pretty invisible throughout the night.

Will hold off judgment of the offense until Forsberg and Stalberg are back in the lineup.

Won't say much about special teams beyond...yikes.
Smaller pads will only really affect his butterfly as he lost 4" of pad length total it won't affect his movement negatively. If anything it will help his movement as the pads will be shorter and lighter.
