These guys SKATE! They don't glide like Jackets of yore.
I finally found a bar that had the game. That is the first thing I noticed.
My first impression was that this looked like a pee-wee team, but in a good way. Everyone is swarming, nobody looks in position, but whenever a hole appears, someone hustles his ass off to get back in position, like Johansen did a few minutes ago to knock Weber away from a goal line pass. But the swarming also makes the offense comes in waves, and everything is headed towards the net. There is no "get into the zone, and wait to see where Nash is"
It is total chaos, it'll give up some ugly goals at times, especially with how active Bob is in net, but it seems to be effective so far.
Blues blowing out the Wings 4-0 after two..... Are the Wings done??? They have lost a ton of players..
Well, losing one of the greatest of all time, holmstrom, and their core players getting a year older is definitely going to hurt them for a year. This might be the prelude to a reload by the wings in the next couple of seasons. Definitely going to be an interesting time in the Central. Blues, Hawks, and Preds have been chopping down the Wings for a few years, this might be the year the "wheels" finally fall off. (i.e. they finish 4th in the central ahead of us)
