Start a thread in the Pens section

Just slobber all over Staal for like ten paragraphs

Then at the end type "By the way, how is Sutter doing for you guys?"

Go.
We have the worst defense and PK in the league. For the Canes to make the playoffs, Ward will have to be vezina contender.

How's that for lowered expectations?

The Bowman interview was pretty awkward as far as interviews go. He was one of the players who played decently in the first period and the whole time he sounded like he was on the verge of tears.

Hmmm.... here's a first draft, just kinda stream of consciousness. Flexing my creative muscles. Let me know what you think.

"Canes fan coming in peace...

Just wanted to say that Jordan Staal really light it up tonight at both ends of the rink.

I knew he was always a really solid player, but MY GOD he looked incredible already.

If this is any indication of the player he is now, and still developing into, WOW!

I can totally see why a lot of pens fans were really bummed about having to give him up.

He and skinner already are showing unreal chemistry in one 5-1 exhibition game loss ( i know it was an exhibition game loss but he still hustled his ass off O & D side of the puck ) and combined for 8 hits in regulation and was probably the best rinkside analyst in the building.

Tons of people were really bummed losing Sutter, but he is quickly going to make people forget about that in the meth capital.

On top of that I really think Staal has a chance to really spread and grow his offensive abilities here in raleigh too (which I am sure he will be very happy about).

How has B. Sutter looked so far with you guys?"


Yes?

They had the third highest attendance last night and the place still looked half empty.

Way too early to freak but the holes are obvious. We needed the Jordan staal and semin of the defenseman world. We were bad at d last year, and we didnt do much to fix that. Sangs is generally worse at d than mcbain, and Corvo's issues are pretty adequately described here over the last 12 hours.

Ward will be fine, Ellis is pretty solid. We looked better as the game went along, we obviously haven't ha time to develop chemistry. As a boychuk supporter, I thought it was totally appropriate to put bowman in his place. Boychuk looked like everyone else, bowman looked sharp and confident. Semin will be a huge plus, jstaal looked better when he started taking it to the net himself.

Better to let this one go altogether. We'll see what was nerves and what is a pattern maybe next game. Probably will take a couple weeks. We weren't the only team to fall on their face.

The Bad and the Ugly were pretty obvious, but on the positive side, there were a few bright spots.

The Good (or at the very least, mediocre)

** Ellis so far looks like an improvement over humpy-dawg.

** Our third "center" - Jussi Jokinen - was 9 for 12 on faceoffs.

** The Faulk and Pitkanen pairing was really good. Faulk is going to be a legit top d-man, and Pitkanen must have been playing somewhere during the lock-out, because, unlike the rest of the vets, his speed and timing were right on the money.

** Skinner should be back to rookie season form. After the third or fourth Panthers goal, he started trying to dipsy doodle around and do too much by himself, but at least he looks like he is fully recovered from last seasons injuries.

** Most of the AHL kids looked pretty good

The building looked sold out in the first period and half-empty in the second and third. There must be something to that.

Some notes:
-Florida didn't look like they got the memo to remember to look crappy for the first game of the season.
-Corvo definitely got the memo.
-Ellis was pretty good for a backup goalie.
-Chantel was pretty.
-I had no problem with her interviews after I put the broadcast on mute.
-LaRose will be back on the first line against Tampa.

Chantel will be fine. She compliments John and Tripp much better than Bob personality wise.

Re the game, outside of Estaal, Jstaal, Skinner, Sangs, Corvo, and Ward, I thought a lot of the players looked pretty sharp. But those 5 and ward have their hands in just about everything.

The good news is that the Staal's and Ward are good players and not question marks, so once they right their ships, it'll just be a question of Corvo/McBain/Sanguinnetti finding a way to amount to two serviceable dmen.

I thought Jordan Staal played decent.. He seemed to have more jump in his step then his older brother at least.
