Can't stop laughing at top line Ennis. 

 

It's an interesting call they've made - to put a fourth line fringe guy up there so that they won't have to move a few lines around whenever Nylander signs.  I'd have tried Kapanen there instead but he didn't have a great camp by all accounts (while Ennis looked pretty good).

Look at the rest of the top 6. I think they'll manage 

 

Centre depth is fine and will be fine for years. Just interesting that they lose Nylander and only have two top six calibre wingers for the lineup. That's a gamble. Same with Ron Hainsey on the top defensive pairing. Woof.

In the early going, it looks like the Leafs are as s#!tty on the blueline as they are loaded at center.

Called a Hudon/Lehkonen breakout year and Lehkonen has a good start!

Habs balanced 4 line attack. No elite talent but no bums either. Good start.

That was a power play clinic. Holy shit.

Not a bad period overall.  The Habs had the early control but it's pretty evident that this defence corps is going to have a lot of adventures in their own end.

Not a bad first period of the season! If I didn’t know better I’d start getting optimistic about this year.

 As much as I'm curious about the 4 line team, I'm terrified of this garbage defense.

Our penalty kill was garbage last year and looks garbage again

Petry had a solid first, but he'll just leave his guy all alone out front to chase the puck. So frustrating to watch.

Domi with a dumb penalty. Other two were cheesy calls.

Bad penalty kill plus bad penalties does not make for good results.

Kotkaniemi looks legit. Little too much one on four stuff but...

Much better than I thought he'd be.  I'm thinking a year or two into the future, with another 20lbs of muscle on his frame, and it seems very promising.

If the team plays like this all year they will be a lot more entertaining than last year

MOLG's favorite player ties it up.

 

First NHL point for Kotkaniemi.
