Another Monsters game - just as bad as last night. Went home to finish watching the grand finale at the Ironman world championship. It was a phenmonenal race this year with Craig 'crowie' Alexander winning in a new record time.
Some have looked better than others in the preseason. If BS gives everyone the same suspensions for hits to the head I'll be ok with him missing that many games- although I'd have to look at the one JA got- sounded like the guy that got him only misses 2 games. TC looked pretty good in goal the other day and Howard tends to run in spells anyway- especially with playing so many games in 6 days with it being just out of training camp and lots of travel. Hope we have a good season, although MB doesn't expect us to have a 100 win season this year.
Never forget the 343 (NY's Bravest)!

Haven't watched much of the preseason stuff, though I have kept an eye on who is performing and who isn't. Tough break with the Smith suspension; could have been some valuable experience for who seems to be a promising defenseman.
I hear Howard isn't doing very well. I'm still not sold on him until he brings a Cup home or posts better numbers. I know our defense last year was poor, but a starting goalie cannot have a GAA and SV% ranked in the 30s.
I'll be keeping an eye on Hudler, Filppula, and Franzer early on. We really need those 3 to start producing, particularly Franzen. I'll also be interested to see how White transitions to the Wings' system (guy has bounced around so much, his head must be spinning).
