Through two, Osgood has really been the best player on the ice for the Wings. He looks quicker than I remember him and I think he's playing the angles better.

Lebda and Kronwall are looking good, too. None of the kids fighting for a spot on the roster are really impressing me aside from Bootland's willingness to drop the gloves. That's pretty disappointing.

Hudler goes and makes me look like a liar in the third. Picks up a goal and contributes some good defensive stickwork. MacDonald with a huge save in the final minutes and we go to overtime.

Hudler looked good again in the shooutout and MacDonald looked like Dominik Hasek circa 1999 in the OT but the Avs walk away with the win.

You know now that Shanny is gone we don't have anyone who is willing to drop the gloves in that enforcer role. Bootland might be our best bet, besides who is going to stick up for Lidstrom or anyone else?

The Wings only fought five times last year anyway, I'm not sure how important it is. I like how willing Bootland is to drop the gloves but I worry that it might be too willing.
