Went to the game yesterday, had a blast. The team looks good, the talent is totally there. Henrique, Josefson, Tedenby, and even Butler looked GREAT. We have some SERIOUS offensive talent coming up!!
However, our defense was largely underwhelming. Larsson made a couple of questionable plays in the second half of the game and overall they left Kinkaid out to dry way too many times. Kinkaid, on the other hand, looked GREAT. Disregard the 4 goals on the scoreboard, he made some awesome saves and if my memory serves me correctly, all 4 goals were from some seriously severe defensive lapses around/behind the net. I don't get to watch minor league hockey too often but I felt very comfortable with Kinkaid in net. It's the defense I'm a bit worried about; there were player coverages I could spot from the upper seats that our d-men were one step behind on.
However, the Penguins didn't look half-bad, so I can't say the team played badly overall; they were extremely evenly matched.
