I know they are trying to feel out our prospects, but it is surprising we aren't seeing many regulars at all in our first couple of games. No Kane, Hossa, Seabrook, Hjalmarsson at all yet. Would be nice to see the new guys paired with the vets to see how they handle that, instead of being thrown in with an entire line of prospects.
I hate to quote myself, but I am finding this game extremely annoying. How the heck are these potential roster players supposed to be evaluated while playing a puck possession game when they never have the puck? They need to play 60-70% roster guys and fill in the rest with guys that are being seriously evaluated to see how well they integrate with the team. Propect and training camps are for weeding out the scrubs, preseason should be for letting the top prospects show their stuff with NHL caliber players. This is supposed to be a team game right? Ugh.
