He's great at leveling people who don't see him coming. So that's...something.

So he's got that going for him.

I'd like to see Toews as well. Sbisa in the D zone looks akin to a moose trying to eat with a fork.

Hard to see Boychuk and Sbisa working for long. Might as well put Toews for Boychuk instead.

Little bit of a surprise to me. He sounded pretty committed to putting the work in and giving this a legitimate shot, so I was wondering if he'd be willing to put some time in at the AHL level to adjust to the N. American game with an understanding that he could go back to the KHL if it either wasn't working, or if he wasn't called back up within a given amount of time.

We've just seen too many times players like Kovar not willing to put time in at Bridge.

Maybe some of these guys in the KHL hear how wonderful the amenities are in the NHL, and then don't realize that the AHL is different until that first long bus ride to a game.

I didn't even notice Nelson. Maybe that's a good thing.

made the play on the wall and passed it to Fillpula for the goal. Won a bunch of big face offs late. Blocked a few shots.. was ok on the PK that I watched. I was pleasantly surprised at Nelson from what I saw of him.

looked like FOs were an issue and generated lot of offense for the canes.

Like I said earlier, I was only able to catch about 8 minutes of the 3rd. I did see him win a D zone draw.

I thought he made a few good defensive plays. Offensively, that line's missing some...I don't know...jump, or urgency. When they finally got into the zone and held onto the puck, you could see why it could work...Lee getting attention in front of the net, which opens things up a little for Eberle and Nelson.

edit -- I'm pretty sure he also set up Filppula's goal since they were in the middle of a line change...or coming off the PK, or something.

the initial structure is there. I would recommend you watch trotz post game thoughts on Isles website.
He said trying to get guys to move way from holding puck too long takes time. Just as long as Barzal is allowed to continue overhandling puck. Lets him get marked by more defense matchups it seems like it leads to isles PP almost everytime.

Cant hit what you cant catch.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5zkYpyisXU my guess is Gudbranson gets fined/suspended for this hit. If you are truly trying to get these out of the game then he has to get something. Didn't have puck... caught him on chin.. total blindside hit.

Tired of the "you gotta keep your head up" nonsense. This was Dillon Dube's first shift in the NHL. Just got destroyed by a blindside hit without the puck. Hats off to Hamonic for going after him but it certainly didn't work out too well for him.

The puck was right there in a split second he has to make a decision. The right call is a 2 minute interference. He could have easily touched the puck but didn't and therefore gets a penalty.

Shoulder to chin on a blind side hit without the puck. He will get suspended and/or fined. If they are trying to take these hits out of the game to protect the players than they have to be consistent.

He got up, which means NHL player safety won’t suspend

I honestly think if nhl player safety’s thinking was used in the criminal justice system that you’d get a pass for attempted murder because you failed to kill someone.

Think that one was a bit of the combo platter.. yes he was terrible last night but seems puck kinda stuck to ice. not so sure that one was completely his fault... Better not sleep on Carolina.. they looked good last night and even better tonight. they get goal-tending like they did tonight and dang they got a chance not great but a chance to make playoffs
