To echo others, he did not look out of place, was not beat badly, recovered well when he was out of place, and made some good plays. For someone entirely new to the Preds system (although I don't think it is hugely different than the Wings system, just populated with far less talent) he did well. I am encouraged. And I agree with those who say Forsberg could use another year with the Ads. I think he is not quite ready yet, and do not want to ruin him.
I'm surprised he is not doing good on faceoffs, he was often dominant on the dot with the Griffins and was one of the leaders at the World Championships last year winning 58.2%.
