I agree. A lot of people talk about Leopold and Jaybo being soft, but their game doesn't necessarily dictate that. They don't waltz around like our 4th line crushing people, but they do a good job of staying in position and cancelling their man. I like what I see. Jaybo's got such a long stick and great skating ability too, wow does he cover some ice without too much effort. No wonder he plays 1000 minutes a game for 600+ games straight.

McDonald sucks.

Cracknell is awesome. Great bottom 6 player. This team just plays better with him in the lineup.

I liked our physicality that period.

Bouwmeester has an impressive presence out there.

He's really hard to watch offensively this year. It's too bad cause the 2010-11 Backes would be a huge deadline pickup.

We definitely have the potential to regain what we did last season, but our offense and PP need to pick it up too.

Bishop is killing it for the Bolts right now. Pitching a 39-save shutout so far.

If our goaltending sorts itself out, then our defense and forwards are better than last year.

10 1/2 minutes for Polak in the 1st??? Crazy!

Wish him nothing but the best, but it is tough to see what we let go.

Bouwmeester looks good. Big, long, great skater, helps the transition, smart, and isn't soft like some make him out to be.

More talent, but the production has to match it. They have been very productive earlier in the season, they just need to get back to that.

It's already sorted out.

It's called Jake Allen. Play him behind THIS team and we're golden.

Bouwmeester has looked good in the first period, but not a lot to judge him on. Good positionally, moved it out well... positive enough early signs.

Porter and Cracknell combine for 4 of the Blues 7 shots in the first

JR just tweeted that our 4th line had 4 of our 7 shots....

I would venture to say our 3rd line is responsible for the other 3....

1st/2nd line need to pick it up. They have been hemmed in as soon as they hit the ice.

I wish it could have worked out for him here, but there was just no way to keep him. Honestly, everybody won in that deal. Ottawa got Conacher and a fourth for a second, we got a second round pick for a goalie that was stuck behind Elliott and Halak and want ever going to play, and Tampa got their goalie.
