Im loving this team this year, I hope there isnt as much inconsistency as in the past.

The devils sure are lacking depth, I heard five or six names that I had no clue who they were.

And Hank was amazing!

I especially liked what I saw from EC tonight. He wasn't able to convert, but he had a few great chances and a few average ones to boot. His hockey sense seems to be improving and as a result he's getting to the right place on the ice more often. If he worked on his hands a bit more, he'd have some real second line center potential. Of course I still expect to see him on the first line with Gabby when he gets back. Can't really argue with chemistry (as long as it keep working).

Oh, and how about Duby with a monster of a game? I think he's really going to grow into his potential this year because of the move to wing.
