A few things, we suck when don't play our game. We don't play our game when a team manage to pressure our Ds to revert into that throwing the puck away style. We need more poise with the puck from our blueline.

I like that AV gives his lines time. But I am sorry, K-S-N isn't working and K is living on old merits. For any kind of longer period, he has ONLY been good when playing with Zucc EVER in the NHL. Get him next to Zucc again and a bit away from the spotlight. He is coming along fine, but he needs more TIME. He is still pretty clueless in some areas.
Ola, I generally like your posts and I know it's still early, but where did that come from? I mean Diaz on our 1st defensive pair? Diaz has the tendency to get stuck in his own zone badly. He's pressured easily and his play along the boards is below average, to put it nicely. He's good at transitioning through the neutral zone. I could see us giving Klein-Diaz a shot against weaker competition (as we could also try him on the PP), but putting him with McD dosn't solve any of our problems.

Falk on the 3rd pairing isn't bothering me itself, but there are at least 7 defensemen on this team that are better. Due to the system Vigneault plays, make that 8 because Allen's the more mobile type. Falk doesn't have the skating to chase guys around man-on-man.

Agree on your Kreider-stance.
