Need to step up the intensity, they look flat. Gillies is a waste why is he playing...

-To many sloppy plays in our own zone, when AMac gave that puck up we were lucky Hedman overskated it otherwise it may have been 2-0

-Aside from the point blank stop on Lecavalier, I don't like how Montoya looked in that 1st period, scrambling around to much, looks a little shaky, the play where Staios took the penalty he was facing the net, if it weren't for Staios taking that penalty, Tampa probably would have scored.

They need to come out in the 2nd and get pucks deep, and get some more shots on Garon, and obviously not turn the puck over as much.
I completely agree with everything.

As for Montoya, he didn't look that bad, but like you said, a little shaky. Let's just hope that is because of his week off, and he will be better the rest of the game.

Okposo.

There can be a change to this:

the more and more i watch okposo, the more i think that he isnt as good as the Isles really thought he was. ehh too early in the season to tell tho i guess, but still not impressed with him

Many of us called this a "let down game," at least had the conditions (post Rag, time off, Tampa revenge). Flat period, a few sustained shifts by the top line; you can almost expect that on a gamely basis.

Credit Tampa for not looking totally atrocious in their own zone, and winning some battles.

Eaton made some nice D plays.

I'm all for sending Comeau a message, but I sure wish we could get a better 4th line replacement.

They should play better as the game progresses.

Martin Bailey Okposo could be a dirty third line

Gilles is on borrowed time. So agree with you. We are a few games away from Nino comin in and by thansgiving, i think we'll see Haley.

On Okposo, why does he look like a 6 year old who just got his 1st pair of skates for christmas? He is stumbling every shift!

I think it's time to change up the 2nd and 3rd lines.

Exactly, and it pisses me off that Capuano scratched a guy who scored 24 goals last season for Gillies, a guy who is only going to play like 2:00 mins, if that. regardless if Comeau hasn't been playing well its ********** dumb

I'm not too happy with any of the lines outside of Tavares's line. I think when Nino comes back he should take Okposo's spot on the 2nd line and have Okposo move to the 3rd line.
