Had no idea this was on Sportsnet, was watching a stream when Rob Faulds showed up to do an interview. Much better watching in HD.

Pedneault speculating that Stortini is suddenly motivated to play well today due to today's CBA news. The guy can barely play in the A...who is signing him to play in the NHL?

1 thing I noticed about Leblanc is that he's very good at making "the right deke" in high traffic situations. He's not flashy offensively, but he's very effective, his own brand of smart hockey.

You can't really ask for more regarding Beaulieu and Tinordi. I would like for Beaulieu to be more of a shooter than the playmaker on the power play though, as I expect him to play with Markov in the future..

Hopefully you won't end up eating those words. Although our bottom 6 is pretty full already.

Wow, what a terrible hockey team this is. Took not even 20 minutes to blow it.

Really can't wait for Mayer's contract to be finally over.

Lol, doubt it, they barely played Orr who's earning 1 million a season. Habs-Leafs will be AWESOME now that we have a combination of healthy Moen, White and our new addition Prust + Bouillon and Tinordi on D.

I think the IceCaps are playing better defensively in this second, which makes the difference.

Not terrible, young and fragile and ****** goaltending.

At least Leblanc is finally playing on a line with Bournival and Holland.

Avtsin needs to follow a strength program and some food.

Wasn't he drafted as a center? Not sure, but I could have swore he was. Not to worry, we have Gally who's playing wing in WJC after being drafted as the #1 center in his class.

It depends what you define as terrible. Being in last place with a god awful goal differential, while blowing winnable games at home is enough for me.

They do have their moments where they look good, but they are usually followed by long stretches where they look atrocious.

At least Hagel-Stortini got a lot more icetime this period. They only had ~2min in the 1st period.

And each went -2 apparently, according to the AHL site.

One neat thing to come out of this lockout is getting a chance to see PK work on sportsnet while waiting for both the NHL and PA to get their **** together. PK definitely as a career in TV after he hangs up his skates.

Outside the bi-polar segment of our fan base, I hear and read nothing but positive from hockey commentators/press. This is the same faction that labels our young players as bust if they have a bad game or bad shift.

Consistency as a pro is the hardest and longest aspect to acquire. What you are describing is exactly how a team with 10 players under 22 playing against men.

even thought the chirping is light hearted, you can see that Kypreos is pretty miffed that someone as young and inexperienced as P.K. is already better than him. And Kypreos isn't THAT bad.

I am not even that worried about how the kids are playing/progressing. Most of them are doing what I expected or just slightly worse. Leblanc is the disappointment, but he has an injury excuse and he was used very poorly too.

It's the team as a whole that is terrible. Mostly because the veterans have been awful and in some cases, injured.
