I am very impressed with the defensive corp. Size, skill and skating and should just keep getting better. I could see the Komets keeping eight D with one on reserve and rotating them all season because of call-ups and injuries. There's not a weak link in the bunch.
Gary Graham is not satisfied with his forwards' balance and consistency yet, but they've scored four goals in each of the first two games. He's right, but they'd have killed to do that last year for two games in a row. Still need to work more defensively.
