We'll know pretty quickly in game 1 if Ovy is back to his old self. From the few preseason shots I've seen him take, the puck seemed to be exploding off his stick. That's a good sign. Seeing both he and Semin go to the backhand in the shootout was nice. Those two are nearly unbeatable when they go backhand. I just want to see all out effort, fitness, creativity, some leadership and most importantly professionalism.
