I think there were so many changing pieces that it took a little time for the team to start to gel. That's not always something that can be worked out in the preseason.

In any case, the offense still has a lot of room for improvement. We get some good chances here or there, but offensive zone possession (and not just possession by the means of being able to keep the puck in the zone) needs work, and the power play looks very disorganized.

On the flip side, I like the way the D is coming together...even without Josi. When Josi returns, he should be back with Weber...but I think Jones is really benefiting from his temporary promotion...nothing like on the job training with one of the best in the league. The surprising thing to me is how well the 2nd and 3rd pairs look. I can't complain much about the play of Ellis, Ekholm, and Bartley. For as young as our D core is in general, they are playing very well.
