It’s still so early; but it’s more than a little concerning that every single young player on the team from last year have regressed (except Jack). 

Mercer is the only play driver on the team. How upsetting.

You said it with your first sentence. I’m not getting upset nine games in. The one guy I’m annoyed at is Sharangovich. He’s been largely invisible.

well the term sophomore slump does exist for a reason, so they are not the first ones

I’d argue Bratt drives play when he’s on his game. He had a team leading 7 SOG last night, and he was really flying out there. I’m glad his benching seems to have woke him up. Hopefully it does the same thing for Severson. 

Other positives; Johnsson continues to look like a totally different player from the one we saw the majority of last season (that pass to set up the Bratt breakaway goal was just gorgeous). Also, Blackwood played great last night. If we can finally get a decent goaltending tandem out of him and Bernier it’ll be huge. 

Last but not least, your boy keeps burying goals. And nice ones at that.

If we can win tonight we'll salvage 1-1-1 on this road trip which I'll consider a success, given the players we're missing.  Even an OTL wouldn't be the worst thing, but I think the boys need a win for their confidence.  The more I think about it, I really want them to pot some goals more than anything.  This team is offensively starved at the moment.

This isn’t Nico’s sophomore season. It isn’t Bratt’s sophomore season. It definitely isn’t Severson’s sophomore season and it also isn’t Kuokkonen’s sophomore season.

I’ll give Ty some breathing room. Sharangovich might just stink? But this team regressed in the off-season and that’s a big old yikes from me, dog.

Johnsson is an exceptional bright spot so far. What’s crazy is that he doesn’t look any different to me this year; the major difference is he’s finding the net.

Backyard bourbon and a fire tonight for pre-game. Might just grab my small Vizio TV and watch the game out here. Lot of raccoon activity this evening, though.
