Palmieri has decent speed, slowish to start but not a bad top speed. Strong on the puck
Veilleux is a hard working guy who isn't afraid to hit but has little to no actual skills.
Foster had no major crap ups and even saved a potential goal.

Banana didn't look too bad. Woodchuck was okay. Was impressed with Palmieri. LOVED the defense getting the pucks on net tonight.

and a shot that can get through to the net by itself.

Palmieri reportedly got 2nd star.

And the record without Zid in the lineup just keeps improving

From the small viewing sample I had, it looked like whenever he was on the ice, he was fast, strong on the puck, and made it seem like something good could happen.

Looks like our new guys are doing well. Amazing at how trading one guy changes the team chemistry up.

well maybe they'll make some changes now that they have someone who can actually bomb it... People always said zid had a great shot but I never saw it--more shots toward the net that guys could get a piece of. Foster has a shot that actually has a chance to score by itself from back there. but yeah, here's hoping we can get the puck to him on the PP.

Veilleux was invisible after his first shift. Foster had one good play (the wrist shot on the Heatley chance) and about 4-5 bad ones. He's a pylon that can't play defense or even hold the zone.

I'm sorry that you expected him to be a scoring threat, or anything other than a body to fill the roster with NHL experience.

The 2nd star didn't get on the scoring sheet either.

Our new guys did really really good today.

I'm surprised at how the Wild just stuck around, didn't collapse after going down 2-0, and came back after going down 3-2.

Now if only Christensen wasn't invisible. Get on that, Christensen!

He used to, and he showed it his first season here. But then something happened. I think Russo made a good observation on his blog - his shoulder injury last season had something to do with it. He just wasn't the same player after that, basically refused to shoot the puck.

He's just kind of there until they play into a 1-1/2-2 game and he's needed in the shootout.

I think Yeo trusts the 4th line more than he does the 3rd line...

Sounds like it was a good comeback victory. What time is the replay so that I can watch the whole thing?

Well Christensen is supposed to be a top-6-or-bust kind of guy right?

Stupid question, Terhaar. "This effort tonight...is it what we need to see down the stretch?"

Really?

His play on the semi breakaway was pretty good too.

Surprising to see you on the negative side of a win. Weird.

i really didn't see it then, either. remember being very underwhelmed in comparison to MAB, rolston, and even Foster's shot. he was much better at hockey in general than those two D but the shot wasn't anything to write home about.

Yeah, he is pretty much only here for the shootout now I'm pretty sure.

I don't know if anyone was expecting anything out of them. 2 guys playing in the AHL and the #6 d-man in NJ. They didn't really impress though(by impress, I mean separate them from the rest of minor leaguers that are on or have been on this team). Palmieri had some looks but it was easy to see why they nicknamed him facepalm.
