Ill post a few late thoughts,

Our top line looked good and they didnt really even try. I remember several sequences they were just trying to do a set play even if the puck went elsewhere and not go all out.

Weber manhandled the Thrashers, while they players were just grinders and AHLers they were not small.

Sulzer may be the whipping boy this year, he is a good player but he has perhaps the most boring, unspectacular game around. He will help the team.

Laakso was my darkhorse to make the team and I still think he will do it. We need to replace Zanon and well Zanon never did any spinorama goals. Defensively was solid and threw out some hits.

Ellis looks to be a steal in the draft. As is stated he looks small but has great smarts and has no fear either.

Franson has a rocket shot and size. But cant hit anything with the shot, is slow and cannot play defense.

As for the rest of the forwards I can't really say anything else, they ALL played smart 2 way games and you guys know Wilson stood out offensively.

Zidlicky is still ahead of Franson to me. The first two words to describe Franson that come to mind are sloppy and lazy. Sure, he's talented, but goddamnit guy, if you do it professionally, you better do it all the way...

Zidlicky is light years better than Franson.

Zids was unfairly bashed as Zanon was heedlessly praised. He carried the blame for our PP sucking, but went somewhere else and had instant success.

If you want to blame people for our power play sucking, you may as well just point the finger at everyone on the team

I saw plenty of Zidlicky, but not the Zanon praise. Everyone was always complaining about Zanon: one-trick pony, sprawls on the ice, etc.

if you have to slide & use your body to block a puck, you were out of position
