If you can hang with Toews/Hoss/Kane/Sharp is saying a lot. Been saying for a while that Saad is a very smart intuitive player. He plays to the talent of his linemates and always knows where he needs to be. He's going to be a perfect third wheel on either of the top two lines.
I agree with everything here. I think I'm just still looking for him to cash in. It'll come, I'm sure, I guess I just want some evidence that he's not snake bitten or something lol
I'm liking the 1-2-2 in the neutral zone. Blues won't break that.
Not liking: annoying chicks in my row.
More popular the team= More annoying chicks at the game. Sat behind a group of 6 girls all dressed up like they were going to the club during the last game I went to. They didn't pay attention to anything game related except to stand up and cheer when we scored because the rest of the building was doing it. I swear to you each girl got up and left her seat 2-3 times per period
Bollig has a place. He can play a little. Had a nice high shot on Elliot early on.
You knew Blues would come back and kick things into gear. Keith looked terrible at times, losing the puck and was really only visible when making mistakes. Leddy got burned a couple times, but then made a couple fantastic plays including the one that set up the 3-on-Elliot. Kane nice goal, but also made a few facepalm-worthy turnovers. Typical Kane period. Will say that Toews just looked out of it that period as well.
All in all a solid start against a really good team. Could have cashed in on some more of their chances but that's the way it goes against a good G sometimes.
