Overall, I thought they played pretty well. Way too many penalties, although I found a good chunk of them to be pretty weak calls that likely aren't called in the regular season. Thoughts:
Pavel Zacha - Very good, there was a few times he really got his feet going tonight and was able to create in the offensive zone. There was one sequence in particular in the 3rd where he was able to control for a long time and get a chance near the goal mouth. Keep up more of that, that's the Zacha I love to see.
Joey Anderson - I'd say good, looked like he belonged out there and I can't think of any mistakes he made. Looked strong on the forecheck and definitely has a lot of smarts on both sides of the puck.
John Quenneville - Thought Q was alright, didn't create enough 5v5 for me but you can tell he's very comfortable on the powerplay. Wish we got more than 2 PP opportunities so he could have showed his stuff there more. Thought Q was much better in the Rangers game on Monday.
Blake Coleman, Travis Zajac, Drew Stafford - Kind of average across the board, but I thought Coleman was the best of the three minus the penalties he took. Travis was his steady self, but there were a couple times he squandered some looks between the dots in the offensive zone. Stafford wasn't good or bad for me, just kind of there.
Marian Studenic - Really liked what I saw from him, kid has a ton of speed and he was creating a good amount of chances off the rush. Wanna see him in at least one more preseason game because I quite liked what I saw tonight.
Mikey McLeod - Thought he was much better in the NYR game, and I think part of is he just seems much more comfortable at his natural position at center. Still thought he had an above average game though, he's doing enough to stay in consideration for a spot.
Brett Seney - Has a lot of speed and it really seems like he wants the puck on his stick out there, but I think he'd benefit from starting in the A to get used to the pro pace a bit more and to bulk up. Kid has a good skill set though.
Kevin Rooney, Blake Pietila - Meh. Rooney and Pietila don't do anything for me, but at least Rooney can move a bit out there. I'm hoping both are in the next round of cuts, they don't do nearly enough to warrant a look on this team.
Kurtis Gabriel - Holy fvck does this guy suck. Cut him immediately.
Will Butcher - Thought he was good, can't think of any mistakes he made and he just looks so comfortable quarterbacking the powerplay. I'm definitely not concerned about a sophomore slump with him, I was happy with him tonight.
Steve Santini - He just left me wanting more out there tonight, he got beat in front of our net a couple times and I thought was just okay exiting our zone. Hoping to see more out of him as the preseason goes along.
Damon Severson - Just thought he looked kind of passive out there tonight, he didn't do anything outstanding for me tonight which is a little disappointing when you consider the role he should take on our defense this year. Not bad, but I wanted more.
Egor Yakovlev - Tonight and Monday I think he's looked fine. Not anything that wows me in any area, but it looks like he can hold his own reasonably well which is good considering this is first time on North American ice. Definitely not the disaster that Dyblenko was last year in preseason.
Colton White - Thought he looked fine, smooth skater but looks like he gets pushed around a little too easily in our own zone. Definitely needs more time in the A.
Eric Gryba - Doesn't have the foot speed to hang on our blue line. He probably stays a little longer, but I'd be fine with getting his cut out of the way.
Keith Kinkaid - Thought he was fine, didn't think he had to make many tough saves though and I would have liked him to stop the Lee goal in the 3rd.
