Ryan Hamilton's a good player, and seems like a great leader. I'd prefer him on the Leafs third or fourth line over just about everybody who was playing on those lines last season. I don't think he'll be a full-time Leaf, simply because he's the captain, but man... guys got heart, size, and some skill.
Puck movement was okay, the puck retrieval was slow and several times they got themselves in trouble by not moving it quick enough, especially behind the net.
I did see some troubles handling the puck maybe that was due to ice conditions?
Not sure, but they all in general seemed rusty in alot of places. They were losing control in several areas as well. However compared to last years powerplay this was much much better, hence I enjoyed the puck movement in the powerplay yesterday.
I hope they boys gel more better and understand each other much better on the ice.
