The good:

They lost the game but at the same time some things seem to have changed fo the better: passing was more accurate, defensive zone play looked more solid, and they looked more like a unit.
Mason!!! Again..

The bad:

Timonen looks so slow down there and takes stupid penalties when beaten to the outside.
Simmonds is simply lost out there - can't get in the passing lanes, misses his assignments and can't even park himself in front of the net.
Giroux taking all those bad angle shots and not showing any creativity at all.

The ugly:

Coburn constantly passing the puck to Grossmann to let him make the outlet pass.
Out PP units suck pretty bad right now.

But all in all that was to be expected. A system change simply isn't going to be completed after 2 games. The is still hope they can turn this around. If they are still playing that way by the end of October...well..
