    Well the EV hypothesis was broken tonight. Good showing by the Ottawa senators. Bobby ryan showing up is always a nice thing. Hopefully he's got a fire lit under his Donkey now

    He sure does.

    Yeah, was wondering the same. Maybe, either way, what a good player!

    I thought Ryan was very strong, I just can't understand that guy with his indifferent play, injuries aside, he clearly can still be effective.

    Brassard heating up big as well.

    And Condon. ..man...5th round pick, how bout that.

    I think the second half will be more telling. New system, a few new players, defined roles. We should really see what we have. IMO it's still not enough but we'all see what we really have.


    A good takeaway from this game is that we can beat a really tired penguin team! Sarcasm

    We've lost more than our share against "tired" teams. Good to get the win tonight and will be even better to destroy the Leaves.

    Tired or not, Crosby had something like one or two shots on goal and zero points. Boucher said that Hoffman is the kind of player who needs a challenge or he falls asleep. He checked McDavid and Crosby. Guess Hoffman was awake.

    I think we discussed Boucher's past relationship with Hoffman and he seems to know how to get the most out of him. Hoffman has some great assets that can make him effective on either side of the ice, we've seen glimpses before. If Boucher can get that complete game out of him, and it appears he can, we've got a real star in The Hoffer.

    Yeah, this was one story line worth watching from game 1.

    Great game. That was a fun one to watch. I wonder if there are still a host of people on HF who think that Condon for a 5th was poor asset management. Laugh1

    People are incredibly misguided when it comes to assigning value to a draft pick.

    It's easy being right hindsight. What were people saying here when Condon was signed!

    I was a condon doubtful, but only because of his body of work in Montreal. He gave a Dung ton of rebounds when there. Wasn't nearly as effective as he is here. We're also playing ba better defensive system than what was being played in Montreal

    Great W! Ottawa played VERY well outside of the first five minutes of the 3rd period. Very strong game, Condon was great.

    I wouldn't heap praise on Bobby R just yet...he had one semi-weak PP goal and then wasn't overly noticeable the rest of the night. The one nice thing about his goal was he actually didn't think and just tried to shoot it. If he keeps scoring garbage goals, that's fine, we'll take it!

    Stone was amazing, Hoffman was backchecking, even Lazar was in on a couple opportunities. Karlsson was great...just a really complete victory.
