So, is there anything good happening, this start of season?
Personally, I see:
-Tanguay and Koivu both like to play together. It shows. Both are happy and are finding each other on the ice.
-Latendresse is actually faster (too bad he doesn't use his speed...)
-Georges is great, playing with heart as usual. He literally fights to help and protect his good friend Carey Price, and has been our second most consistent D (right behind Hamerlik)
we are scoring more goals at even strenght . I am sure that they will find a way to produce more during the PP at one point .
I like the contribution of Tanguay and Lang .
i prefer to see a slump at this time of the year , because they have the time to correct the things . I also think that a lot of the players thought that it was going to be easy this season . The slump will help them to realise that they can't just count on their talent to win the games , and they need to work .
i think that it's positive to see that we won a lot of game even if our first line didn't produce as it should . I just hope that Kovalev and Plekanec will explose very soon .
I like the guy just as much as the next guy, maybe even more, but Sergei isn't exactly playing great so far... Neither is Andrei.
If some of our players could had finished better Sergei would have more assists.
Do you recall...in yesterdays game when Andre, Sergei and Lang came flying into the Canes zone on a 3 on 1? Sergei held the puck...looked...looked...drifted into the middle of the ice from the right side ...layed a perfect soft pass to Lang..for a wide open shot...and ...alas...Lang did not score. It was a beauty of a play however.
I love watching that kind of hockey from the Kosti bros.
Andrei showed us some wow moments as well. Love that hit he laid on someone. Knocked the other off his skates.
He had several good shots on goal. Hit the post once. Made some nice moves with the puck. He is fun to watch.
Lats looked inspired as well. Going to the net. getting some shots. Using his new speed. All on the 4th line too.
