first of all, the overall team defense has improved. next, its only the first day, and im sure Oren has something coming still. Its hard to be patient, when theres so much being done by the bolts already, but i trust him to get the job done

Very nice signing by TB. Adam Hall is solid, I am surprised he couldn't have commanded close to a million.

Too true. I only had to skim through this thread to see that 90% of the post are ********/jealous/saying the same thing. Like this one:

Is that really something you want to share with people?

Tampa's D isnt as awful as people make it out to be.

Ranger is turning into a great player, and Picard should be a solid number 4 d man aswell.

I'm glad he's gone too, but Melrose is supposedly going to use a run and gun type style. That results in the same thing.

You can't have a team taking offense taking risks consistently without a killer goalie. Based on their current roster, they're expecting them to be talented enough to get away with it more often than not.

Pure run and gun tends to results in too many players clustered towards the far blue line and when they lose the puck behind them...
