Pot, Topper - get a room
On the more general topic of the game that was last night, it was curious to hear Henrik in his post game suggest they played pretty well (though I think he was comparing it to the Minnesota "effort"). This reminded me of when he said the same thing last November after they lost to Phoenix 3-2 the day after the 7-1 Chicago massacre. One of those "good effort" losses where you know you're ready to break through the funk.
Though we should likely take his words as a good sign, I just don't have the same read on the team this year. I still say it's too early to worry, but the structure, discipline and chemistry just aren't there. And unlike last year when they were struggling, those glimpses of brilliance and dominance aren't as obvious to me right now.
BTW - 5 points behind last year's pace....doesn't sound too bad considering how the season ended, but can we really count on a 11-1-2 December like last year?
Not panicking since the skill is there, but really wanting them to kick it up a notch already!
