7 is planning the Cup Parade, trying to decide between Atlantic Avenue and Hempstead Turnpike.

Nope just waiting to see how they actually play before declaring every new signing diarrhea.

That said I am pleasantly surprised to see how they are playing as a team and how well the new signings are playing especially MM and Filpulla

Regardless of what happens this year. Barry is the real deal and MVP
and Garth looks worse and worse never hiring a decent coach.

There's a lot of guys that I'm unimpressed with individually, but Trotz has them playing well together and that's nice to see. This is the first game I've been able to watch in it's entirety, but they played well overall.

Pelech is absolutely putrid. Sbisa is really bad. I don't get Komarov at all. But things can change and it's only three games into the season. Not assuming anything, good or bad, is going to remain constant after only three games. But they played a solid game overall today and it was nice to see.

So it seems. I’m really hoping it’s not an early season aberration, but with Trotz I’m thinking it’s not.

Team has not looked this good in years and even did not look this good when they beat Florida in the playoffs.

Disagree totally about Pelech. Komorov has been sound defensively and on the pK.

Sbisa I can agree with but after him as far as play in his own zone Pulock has been struggling imho.

Pelech did have a brain fart on that pass he made up front though for sure, at the end it didn't matter so he's gonna hear about that one for a while form the boys.

If Lehner/Greiss can team up to give them slightly above-average goaltending and Trotz can keep them playing a strong team-game then they might be able to make a halfway decent season out of it, assuming all the big scorers from last year can have similar seasons.

Bad signing Filppula will make up for the Guys that slack off

Defensive structure, and solid special teams. Who knew that stopping the players from just skating all over the place and doing whatever would be more successful? Oh....right.....we did....for about 12 years. Ice hockey.....I’ve missed it so much...

Through the first three games, it's the hardest I've seen the team work all over the ice since Nolan was coach.

And credit where it's due to the garbage vet line. They've pulled their weight and then some so far.

I know it doesn't need to be said anymore, but it's awesome watching Barzal play hockey. Every time he hits the ice he makes all this crazy shat happen.

Trotz makes sure the guys are going to show up for every game.......or else they're gonna sit.

One negative in an otherwise positive game....... People talk about the phrase "hockey IQ". Does Pelech have any? I'm not just talking about today's decision to pass instead of shoot into an empty net. Just in playing defense, it seems like his decision-making with the puck is questionable at best. All too often he fails to clear, or he passes to the opposition, or he passes to a guy who is closely covered, or he hangs onto the puck too long and loses it to a forechecker.

Good game. Yeah Flipulla looks ok and Martin scored a goal. Most likely one of the six he’ll score this year. Take a breath big guy we’re three games in. Also, Komorov for four years at this point should preclude you from beating your chest about anything but that’s what you do.😂
With all of that said good game entertaining I had to break it up bcs of work just finished it. Lehner looked awesome I hope this is a consistent thing.
