A sliver of turkey mad hope.

I missed this game, but it didn't sound too good.
I feel like I don't know this team anymore. The names are (for the most part) the same, but they just don't say anything to me. That was the case last season, at least. What's changed the most this season is the defense:

Chris Phillips - Erik Karlsson
Sergei Gonchar - Chris Campoli
Matt Carkner - Brian Lee

Even with all due respect, I don't like Gonchar and I'm terrified about that 3rd pairing. Pascal Leclaire is a difficult call: on the one hand, the issue of inconsistent goaltending will remain; on the other, finding that consistency will come at a cost.

The boys play Washington tonight.
