Greening isn't doing nothing. Not living up to his contract, but not doing nothing. Terrible at puck possession for sure, but is 5th in the league in hits.

Among Sens he is 2nd in forwards for blocked shots. Is 9th on the team in takeaways. Ever since the first dozen or so games he has been playing good defencively. Has been using his size more the last few games too. So what if the points are low, the team is playing poor right now and he is not the reason. If the team picks it up his production will pick up.

I don't think Hoffman was lost, but he definitely had a case of the nerves out there. He fumbled a few passes and fanned on a couple shots. I'm ready to give him a few more games to get over the jitters.

For sure he needs a bunch of games. His speed was great and he kept plays alive just by being there in time.
IMO he's got Conacher's quickness and probably greater top end speed but his hands and IQ are much better than Conachers

It couldnt have been a dream start with that very unlucky penalty.
you could see him over deferring to his linemates a few times i suppose, that said i thought he was alright and i liked what he seems capable of bringing.

Again im on board with him getting a whole bunch of games with the same linemates and see what's what.

Locke was not a good skater. Especially for his size, which is what kept him from the NHL. Hoffman can actually skate, now he just needs to bring it all together at this level. He needs to adjust to the timing of the NHL too.

I think he lost a bit of confidence when he got his penalty early in the game. Not the best start after been called up.
