I would think they'd want Colaiacovo to get some more game time.  After all, he's been out so long.  But he is expendable I guess.

I'm excited to see what DeKeyser can do.  It's high-time he got some playing time.

Tonight's game is a must-watch just because of DD's debut.

The funny part is that this is what a lot of LGW forum members want.  They want to see the kids play.  Course, when these kids screw up and make mistakes, these same forum members will have ZERO tolerance for that kind of thing.

 

I love that Babs is playing the kids though.  Gotta have them show what they are capable of.

 I'd rather watch the kids screw up and make rookie mistakes and learn from them than watch some of our vets make rookie mistakes and often get rewarded with more playing time.  I'm a lot easier on the kids watching their potential on the ice.

I didn't see the 3rd but I thought the kid played pretty good tonight.

Steady. A couple nervous passes, but no big deal. Good positioning, great skating, good stickwork, pretty average puck skils, not too physical.

 

Overall pretty good for a rookie playing his first game.

Good game by the kid. A couple of positioning errors but not too shabby for an NHL debut

Don't think that Babs can keep him out of the lineup with his play tonight. Very impressive for his first game in the NHL.

My guess is he sits until the Calgary game, I hope I'm wrong but they sent Tatar down and can't recall him till the playoffs. Normally I trust what babs does with the lineups but the injuries this year have made him go with as many healthy vets as he can put in there

I think its good to let the first game sink in a bit for DD. He played great, but I think we shouldn't put the pressure on him to be a constant starter right away. I think give him a game off then try him again, if he performs well then we will maybe see him as a regular. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Only saw the last 15 of the 3rd, what little I saw of him looked impressive. Good stickwork and skating. Don't see how we can keep White in the lineup over him. Sure if White was putting up big offensive numbers..

Good thought. That was what I was thinking too. Too much depth with the D and I think the coaching staff needs to show him what he did right and wrong and let that sink in for a game or two.

He played real good for his first game. You could see how nervous he was when they had him scoped in and he could barely hold onto the Gatorade bottle and his hands were shaking bad. Nice to see him make some good defensive plays. I like that reach of his, real active in the lanes. He made sure the crease was clear and that no one got near Jimmy, I loved that. Wasn't over physical but allowed his body play to restrict a lot of space. I really liked it.

“I liked him,'' coach Mike Babcock said. “He's going to be a good player in the league for a long time.
“Obviously, he's got to get a lot stronger and just get comfortable playing in his own end, but he skates so good and passes the puck so good and he's smart, a good defender. Makes it pretty easy to like him.''

“There's going to be lots of growing pains for him,'' Babcock said. “I imagine he was a little nervous to start the game, but he settled in and played good for us.''
