so the first look at Jared this pre-season. Not sure what the hell to make of them sticking with Harrison. Bowman is at least understandable as he's battling with Boychuk for a roster spot at this point.
well this is the first chance I have had to check how we have been doing so far in the preseason and it is about as expected, but very happy with what I have read about POS and Skinner. Hopefully both continue to bring that to the table if/when they get opening night roster spots. Surprised to not hear so much about Nash. Happy with the sound of things from Samsonov, maybe he will turn it around. Hoping for Jokinen to bring it again this season. Harrison, WTF lol.
Hope the boys can bring it back to even tonight for the preseason, looking for POS to get another goal, hopefully up on top 6 minutes tonight, and hoping someone else can put one in, maybe Skinner tonight. It will be about 4:30am here when the game starts, and I will have just finished a 12 hour guard duty 1.5 hrs prior, so I doubt I will get a chance to follow this game at all. or any games this season for that matter. but anyways, good luck boys!
Noah Welch, eh? Man, has that guy ever fallen far. I remember him being pretty highly touted when he entered the league with Pittsburgh and now he's faded so far into obscurity that I didn't even know where he was playing.
For the record I'm with you anyway. Anything below 15% on the powerplay is just simply unacceptable to me, and we're somewhere around 7 or 8% so far this preseason. Ideally I'd want it to be right about 18% or better.
