THE MEAT AND POTATOES

The Good:

- I sure do like Aaron Johnson. He scores a goal, had an assist, threw 4 hits and had 4 shots. Not bad for a guy who I thought would be a plug. He's looking like a 3/4 guy. Wow!
- I like Peckham. He's feisty and doesn't mind throwing the ham bones. He just needs to improve on his skating I think he will be alright.
- Robert Nilsson was a whole different player. He had that jam that was missing for quite a number of games. He even scored a goal and had multiple chances.
- I really like the line of Penner/Cogliano/Brule. They did pot one and played pretty solid.
- I liked how Dubnyk played. He did let in a softie, but did OK.
- Jason Strudwick made it through a full game and ended up +1. *claps hands*
- I thought that Taylor Chorney was way better this game. He played like a real NHL player. He had a team high, 5 blocked shots.

The Not So Good:

- Pouliot has no chemistry with Gagner so why does Quinn continue to have them together?
- Ethan Moreau is a 4th line guy. End of story.
- The real Shawn Horcoff showed up. -2 on the night.
- Ryan Whitney may have played a lot, but he ended the night a team worst -3.
- Tom Gilbert was no better. He was also a -3. So much for the dynamic duo.
- I barely noticed Mike Comrie out there. Did he even play? He did?  Right... he was -3.
