maybe its that line, but if you can shut down Jumbo, you in turn shut down seto and heatly.
Its just the 1st game I know, its fine if they lost, its when your top players and defenseman aren't executing fundamentals thats scary. (4 & 5 goals in particular)
I sure hope not...
Losing two, big, physical forwards who were generally good defensively really hurts. Michalek and Cheechoo both had the ability to make some great plays. Even if you take out Cheechoo, who I noticed tended to start taking some penalties later in the year that he didn't need to, that still leaves Michalek who was a very good player for us.
You're right, it's early. But it's frustrating to see us getting blown out by Colorado -- a team we have WAY more talent than..
