Going on just the first week and a half of the season those are accurate. Still don't know how good this team is though. They've had good success against Jersey recently and the Trashers have taken a step back. I'm interested in this home and home against Florida. They've been thorns in the team's side the last two years because they've outworked the Lightning. For some reason, they treat it like it's their playoff series and the Lightning think Florida will play like the bottom feeders they've been and lay down. Early impressions of the team this year is that the effort is much better especially on the lower lines. If they outwork the Panthers, they should beat the Panthers. If they let the Panthers outwork them, we'll see results like the previous two years. The start to this season reminds me of 02-03 and 03-04 where they came flying out the gate and had some ridiculous Octobers.

i agree...i think the home and home series with the panthers will be a LOT more telling about where this team is heading this year then the 1st 2 games.

heres hoping for a 4-0 start and making the stinkin kitties 0-4

That's all well and good, but I'm still reserving judgement. I'm content (for now) with forward. It's the backwards that continues to worry me.
