Jagr & Selanne scoring 4 points and NHL.com barely mentions it, serious fail job by them. Imagine if Crosby and Malkin had 4 point night.

The success of the rookie class, the success of the big names who moved...and the Wild winning on Hockey Day Minnesota, while being the lone team in the NW to get a point, let alone two!

Even after the lockout, LA maybe to get a Stanley Cup Hanover?

Eh, to be fair, they are playing without their most important player IMO.

The rookie class in general. Really impressive for the most part.

Schneider getting pulled, in my opinion. Should Vancouver be worried and in a hurry to trade Luongo? Should be an interesting next few games for them.

The Rangers almost got a shot off on the powerplay.

Old guys and the young guys.
Schneider getting pulled was great fun for everybody... but a goalie having a bad 1st game ... is still just a goalie having a bad game.

I'm split between Jagr/Selanne and the rookie class. Lots of goals in debuts last night.

I know it's overblown, but it's still Schneider/Luongo.

It's either the old guys(Whitney, Jagr, Selanne) or the young guys(Tarasenko, Huberdeau). I went full homer and voted Tarasenko Although I'm thrilled to see Selanne continue to light it up. Not a human being.
