Norris with another goal and 5 shots tonight. 4 points in his first 6 professional games. We may have a player on our hands. Batherson with no points but 7 shots. Hogberg stopped 39 of 41 shots.

I was more surprised by Nick Paul who had himself a really nice game. He was all over the ice.
I hope they give him more than a game as the first game might not be the best indication even though that’s been his signature so far. How does he not hustle more though? It’s pretty clear to everyone, you’d think he’d take it to heart

Brown was all over the place. A lot of chances was created by his line. Lots of positives, Detroit is horrific though, so let's see how he plays vs harder competition.

He hustled, he broke up that detroit play with a beauty of a back check, then had a nice chance himself. I liked everything about his game, I'm surprised to hear any negatives.

On the other hand, I thought Brannstrom struggled for the most part.

7 shots. That's fantastic, I love to see that!

He's 6'6". He should be pushing guys around in front of the net and more active in the corners. I didn't see that out of him. He wasn't on loose pucks quickly but I do agree he was back-cheking well . Just like to see a guy that size use all of his tools - especially those that can really set him apart from the rest

Good game, even if they lose playing like that, who cares.

He appears to be more of a box out kind of player instead of a physical player. No problem with that, especially if he plays with tkachuk. He had a very long reach and seems quite smart at identifying plays and thwarting passes.

I was impressed for the most part. Solid debut.

Sorry. I don't mean to dung on him. I thought Brown was really good is probably our most talented forward. I guess in my eyes he can be even better but maybe the player we see is the player he is. Thornton and Spezza were perimeter guys and I would take them (in their primes) in a heartbeat.

Meh, it's all good. We all bring our opinions and it makes it more interesting IMO. I'll watch closer Friday night, but I don't think you'll see him hitting people out of the way, more likely kind of standing in front of the net as a hard to move big player.

It was very good timing to have Brown up and put him on the "top" line against a terrible Detroit opponent. He only had 12 minutes, so that # has to go up. He also was terrible in faceoffs, but that's expected for a rookie.

I hate that none of our players are good at faceoffs. 12 minutes is not enough, I didn't realize that, but we were on the PK a lot again that game. 5 times I think? Something ridiculous like that.

Mark my words, when we're ready to compete, we better have guys who can win faceoffs and gain possession in both zones or we're completely Cussed.

Pageau is decent on faceoffs. But yeah...when you're not a good team at the best of times and you're losing every faceoff, it makes things that much worse.

Which I am okay with - especially for someone with an injury history. I guess he leaves a couple things to be desired which is probably what the coaching staff sees too.

Pageau is 49.4% in face offs.Tierney is our best at 58.8%
