Arnott's wheels seem fine. He has that Kozlov kind of glide to him but it doesn't look like an issue.

Lemaire's already singled out Steckel's conditioning as needing to improve. I wouldn't be surprised if he got more out of him in time. Maybe he has a poor man's Gaustad in him.

for serious. besides, what with the way semin plays so laterally, up-and-down speed isn't really an issue.

I can tell today that hes not himself right now because its always hard the first day that you get traded, probably also because he comes from a top team to a team that is just starting to play better, Lemaire said. But (from) what I can see, he understands the game well, he looks like in his own zone, hell be able to do a good job defensively. Hes got a good shot, puts it on net and hes strong on the puck. That I could see.

We have to work a little bit and that could be the first day on his skating. Right now, he didnt look in good, good shape and that could be because hes tired too from traveling here.

Maybe the way to play with Semin is give him a good passing option otherwise get the f out of the way. Arnott drove the net, Semin hit him.

A slash and then a cross-check... lucky to get away with that.

That interference is a play that happens 10 times a game. If they are going to call it, call it every time.

I call BS locker.

On the PK, you get a free crease clean.

A far worse interference goes uncalleld in the corner as Wideman gets hit by a guy skating away from the puck.

agreed. What would the call be? He shoved a guy in the back when the puck was there. No crosscheck, no interference, what?

Nobody can expect to get every call they want to. I really hate saying it. But it's the truth.

All I ever ask for is that what is a penalty one way is a penalty the other way, and these refs sure as hell failed that one.

Was that a wideman snafu there?

Lue is Mike Shanahann of hockey with the conditioning stuff.

Rather than focus on the botched call, I'm more impressed that we have a DMan that will clear the paint instead of letting guys get free whacks at the puck. That alone makes Wideman a good pick up if he stays that course.
