Nobody complains about Ericsson play?? 0_0 Anyway, he looked fine to me but still worse than Kindl (except his turn-over in 1st period). Stuart was the biggest disappointment last night.

Ericsson and Kindl are both looking good. Kindl leads the NHL plus-minus stats with +5 and Ericsson is 2nd with +4.

I agree with this.

Look at Hudler as well. The most popular whipping boy here on LGW. He has a goal and an assist and is playing solid.

If there is any room for improvement, its in the power play.

Feels wrong seeing another player wearing #18, not sure if I'll ever get used to it.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Stu looked terrible-like out of shape terrible. Let's hope he can get his feet moving. We can't afford for him to have a bad season.

works every time

Agreed. I had the same problem last year with Salai wearing #24.

The thing that has really stuck out at me over the last two games is team speed. With the loss of some older guys, and the addition of White, Emmerton, and Kindl this team looks a lot faster. The slowest guy is Bert, but even he looks like there's a little extra jump in his step.

I think this extra speed will really pay off. I think it will greatly reduce the time we spend in our own zone and add to our puck possession.

Agreed.

Kindl was good last night minus that blunder on the powerplay.

Even guys that are not known for their speed are moving their legs. The team as a whole looks very driven.

I agree with you, Stuart was in slow-motion mode.

Ericsson did alright. I wasn't impressed by him, but he didn't seem to make any huge mistakes.


Our win can be attributed to one main factor: Konker

Yeah, Stuie was not doing too well last night or Friday night. Right now, I'm not liking his pairing with Kronwall. With Kindl excelling, do you think Babs might eventually shift him to the 3rd line and move Kindl up to the 2nd?

I'm really liking the speed, as mentioned above, the team is showing right now. I hope it continues for the rest of the season. Plus, the infusion of a little more youth is definitely wearing off on some of the older guys, especially Bert, playing with Helm and Abby. I loved those set ups last night and Friday night created by the speed of Helm and Bert finding the right place to be at the right time. I can't wait to see more of that this season.

Just watched the game. Clearly dominated in the first 2 periods.
Defense played good though cleared the front, when they didnt conks was there.
I thought datsyuk was superb, his back checks were awesome
Mule can completely dominate with his hands and stick handling when he wants to
Everyone played good. Kindl looked great

Keep up the good defense

nobody's talking about the 3-on-1 in the 1st (or maybe it was the 2nd period) that Lidstrom single-handedly shut down that probably saved a goal against.

Kindl had a few glaring mistakes, but was overall solid. Ericsson had a couple of high quality (rocket) shots on goal. Man does Ericsson have a freaking bomb of a shot! And of course, Helm was beasting it up. I didn't realize Zetterberg had such a ripping shot! He needs to use that more instead of his typical backhander. I knew Franzen had a fast shot, but I didn't realize it was that freaking fast.

I know the Tigers are the main draw right now, but still. You'd think there would be a bit more life here. I hope there's some more activity around here for Thursday's game.
