Allen actually IS providing what he was brought here to do. the problem is he's not doing much else of a positive nature.

You're right! I was scared everytime I saw him take the ice.

If he can cut out the penalties then he will be doing what he was brought in to do. Luckily it didn't cost us tonight.

Normally I'd roll my eyes, but I'm totally with you here. Etem looks great. He's come so close to scoring so many times and I'm actually pretty proud of how good he's become at distributing the puck.

He's looked better in his 1st few NHL games than he ever did in the AHL in my opinion.

Some player's individual skills stand out at the AHL level while others require better players around them and more structured play to excel - Etem appears to be in the latter category.

Jeez, some of you guys need to pop a Xanax or two. After the first period, Fasth is the worst goalie in the league and we should trade for a goalie... Nope, never mind, he's great. Then it's Allen who's horrible, trade him. No wait, let's trade Perry, he had a bad game. Vatanen is the gretest prospect, oh wait, he made a bad pass, he has no business in the NHL, send him back.

I'm not singling anyone out, it just seems that in every GDT we're overreacting to every single event that happens on the ice and looking for someone to blame, when in fact we're actually playing pretty damn well.

sometimes higher end talents they see the game differently than the average lower level player, and it doesn't work, then they get surrounded with more talented players who also see the game similarly and it clicks. like you know how some guys in the offensive zone will try to pass directly to someone, whereas a Getzlaf/Thornton will pass to an open area where someone should be.

teams figured out the RPG line last year, the speed element and forechecking presence Etem can have could work with them, anyways the speed is making things happen out there and that's all you can ask of a 20/21 year old kid

Great win.

Didn't think the first goal was on Fasth, would of been nice to of held it, but it took a pretty ridiculous close quarters deflection, just a shame it fell to the feet of Couture. Fasth was great tonight, rebound control is iffy at times, but apart from that he's looked really good.

Souray was great again, I'm still so impressed by his defensive work. Had one iffy moment with that 5v3 breakaway for Marleau, but with what Stars fans etc said about his defensive game, I'm pretty happy with it.

Etem looked solid on the top line as well, wonder if he'll see a bit more time there in the future.

All in all, 6-1-1, inflict first regulation loss for the Sharks. This is good

Oh yeah I loved Souray's interview.

What I like most about Souray (besides his shot) is his presence and composure in the defensive zone. These small things are transferred to the rest of the guys, and might make that small difference which results in a win rather than a loss.

You know, you're going to have your Ducks fan card revoked if you keep trying to be logical.

I had a bad feeling about this game but good to see Anaheim winning this one.

Boudreau should stop his linemixing, if it isn't broken don't fix it. Go with:

Etem-Getzlaf-Perry
Palmieri-Ryan-Selšnne
Winnik-Koivu-Cogliano
Beleskey-Bonino-Staubitz/Rakell/Holland

Souray-Beauchemin
Sbisa-Vatanen/Fowler
Allen/Vatanen-Lydman

Send DSP down already! And play the hot goalie. BTW, could it be possible for Selšnne to take faceoffs but Ryan would play the center role?

Great win! Fasth seems to be the real deal. Vatanen showed glimpses but overall not ready and made a terrible mistake once. Luckily didn't result in a goal though. That 5 vs. 3 was horribad, can't remember the last time I've seen such a pisspoor performance.

Loving Viaplay! :-)

This was the first game where Getzlaf got torched on faceoffs, but everyone was pretty bad. Bonino's numbers were good overal, but he was terrible on defensive zone draws. Thornton and Handzus just ate everyone up.

I thought Etem looked good besides that one brutal giveaway in the defensive zone late. Love his speed and ability to drive to the net, had a good scoring chance from that.

Honestly really impressed with Staubitz. Not saying he's anything more than he is but when he was on the ice he hit well I thought and definitely let the Sharks know he was playing.

Fasth looked good but like everyone else is kinda saying I want to see his rebound control get better. Still he looks confident and calm out there. You can work on technique/maybe he'll get better as he adjusts to his dmen and the NA ice but you can't always make a mentally weak goalie into a strong one.

Still not entirely sure what to think of this team yet but I'll take the spot in the standings regardless.

Small note: I know all home broadcasters are guilty of this but Hayward and Ahlers really need to pull it in a bit. One of the more judgmental games I have heard them call and it was embarrassing to hear them call for dives or embellishment or bad penalties what seemed like every few minutes. Burish looked like a dive but everything else was just bad form on them imo. Just a side thought.

I didnt realize how fast etem was until i saw him in person. I heard he was fast but you cant really see the speed on tv(maybe i need a hd tv o.O)

I usually mute the game.
