That was a fun one. Let’s see what kind of effort we put on the ice on Saturday though.

I also thought that Miller did not look half bad. Early though.

82-0.

But 164-0 if we still had Klingberg.

Hard to gauge. Nashville only looked good for about 5 minutes. We really shoulda had more than 4 goals.

Sloppy start, but once they got their legs under them, they were moving the puck very well.

The roster changes up front made a difference. Being rid of broken down Radulov and total spare Raffl helps.

The passing also negated George Soros because no goalie can stop those goals.

Looked pretty good. Benn with the lowest ice time, 11:20. He did win most of his face offs, tho. Newbies making an impact. Like.

If they keep Benn's icetime down, I'm guessing he will be quite a bit more effective.

Also I peg it as 23 games before fans start complaining that Lundkvist, while good offensively, had one turnover in a game in the second period and trade him because that's unacceptable.

And starting Johnston with the opening faceoff by DeBoer is quite the shift in coach thinking.

23 games is quite optimistic, I'd narrow it down to 12 games.

It's actually weird to think that Marchment might be a good signing, Lundkvist a good trade, Heiskanen a good thing to put him on his natural side and Johnston a good rookie surprise in the big team, and DeBoer a good hire, all at the same time. Let's wait a bit to see how it evolves.

Nashville just got back from a euro tour. They were tired.

Prague isn't also the greatest place if you want to focus only on hockey and be away from distractions and temptations.

Heiskanen played on his natural side and had a natural 0 goals and 0 assists.

I thought that was an odd argument since they played about 5 days before, but they certainly had an off game.

Defenseman who was on the ice most lead the team in defensive impact. Film at 11.

And didn't he rate super high in all the advanced stats from the wrong side last season?

Top 5 on his weak side. Better yesterday.

If you watched the game instead of listening to it, you would've realized Heiskanen just got real real lucky.

Entry level social media employees talking *poo poo* as though they’re players on the team is the worst.
