Way to much inexperience there. Stralman showed the true rookie in him last night when trying to ice the puck on a penalty, didnt not even raise it off the ice. I know its a small play, but in actuality it comes down to getting the job done and he didnt. Frogren made a few hits but looked a little sluggish.

Poni Steen Antro
Kulemin Stajan Tlusty
Hagman Grabo Mayers
Blake Moore Hollweg

Yes, Blake, 4th line, until he stops playing lazy hockey!!!!!

Kaberle w/ Vyn Ryn
Kubina w/ White/Coliacovo/SPEED
Finger w/ Stralman

Is it just me or will alot of players be playing out of their natural positions? According to their roster there are 5 RW and 3 of them are Williams, Ondrus, and Didomenico.

Blake has looked like a second liner so far this preseason, and has been playing with some determination, and is looking for and making smart passes. He is not playing lazy hockey. He is creating quality scoring chances.

Sure. Offesively he is cycling the puck more down low. But defensively hes a hack!
When you take tripping, hooking, slashing penalties, those are LAZY man penalties.
IF he is expected to be a leader on this team he has to buy into RW's system and he is not. He is changing when the puck is heading back into the defensive zone and not picking up the trailers. The kid is fast and not using it to his advantage, IMO he is playing LAZY one-way hockey, worthy of 4th or third line at best.

That second line (Tlusty Grabs Kulemin) should be fun to watch especially in the speed department.

certainly, kulemin is used to the right - they should keep playing him there since he is still learning the NA game. Keep him where he is familiar. Tlusty is another smart player who rounds out that line. Hagman is much better suited with Stajan and Blake.

I'm interested to see how Antropov and Pony produce without Sundin in the lineup.
