My opinion is that........it is what it is. I think he's going to get some ice time and see how this year plays out for him. I'm not looking for anything great from him. Depending on the kind of year he has I'm not sure if he's back after this year.
just like last year. flashes of becoming the player we hope for - then disappears for a while. He was excellent in the Boston game but we'll see if he can sustain it.
The pre-season was different for the NYI as it is with other teams. They played very few games, played their B lineup mostly, they seem to relish the practice time more than the actual games - I don't think anyone's really looked great except the goalies. DiPietro looked great, as did Montoya and Nabokov(except tonight)
I've been focusing on the young players and have been impressed with almost all of them: Kabanov, Cizikas (only played once, tonight, and was pretty solid), deHaan, Donovan, Ness.
I didn't see much of Nino, he's hurt now.
On a positive note, Streit, AMac, Hamonic look great.
