    Decided to give Pionk's D the white glove test last night and scrutinize any weak aspect. Watch him like a hawk and be critical, since he was on the top pair.

    I got nothing. His D was excellent, did not see one misstep. He stuffed Barkov completely on one shift, then later got the better of him on Z's goal. He used his stick effectively to get/keep the puck away from the crease and slot. His poke check neutralized two rushes, was never out of position and moved the puck out of the zone or danger zones routinely. Granted, that was an excellent defensive game by the team. They managed to neuter Florida for 2 periods with what seemed like a blueline trap.

    Did McQuaid's time in the pressbox motivate him to block more shots. Give the guy credit, he may not be fast, but that was definitely his most solid game defensively. And it wasn't just the shot-blocking. Maybe the rest is what really helped, and keeping him off the top pair. Or that Dubas was in the building. McQ and Zuc for Kap looks better today.

    I think Chytil is fine. He just needs to get one and relax.

    I don't think 9 games matters for him. MSG reported Gorton stating that Chytil is in the right place (NYC). Doesn't seem like they will send him down. The downside, as was mentioned, is he needs to get his confidence going and that is a lot easier to do in Hartford.

    That aside, I hope everyone sees how good he is and how much more development he has ahead of him. He is far from a finished product and that is meant as a high compliment. He just turned 19 and you can name 10 areas of growth for him, w/o breaking a sweat. It would be good to see him pot one soon.

    A lot easier said than done for a 19 y/o. I think some time in the AHL will be much more beneficial for him.

    Just meant he's pressing. One of these days he's bound to get a goal. And that will settle him in.

    If he's the team's best defender we are in a shit ton of trouble.

    Controlled the play a lot. I don’t look at possession stats, but they always seemed to be controlling play
    They capitalized on opportunities

    Should take some stress off players and coaches for a bit.
    Nice call last night on the game Josh man!!! The first period was an absolute snoozer though. I was able to watch the ending of The Fugitive without missing too much of that debacle. We came out really lethargic and I thought we were gonna get womped!

    The shorty did the trick though...It was like 2 different teams after that. ...still liking Pionk! He's looks a lot more brave out there of late....made some good defensive plays as well.

    I liked what I saw Giac! Pretty good analysis above. I agree!

    I wanna focus on Chytil a little more on Thursday night. I can't understand why this kid doesn't have it going yet. He's getting chances though, which is key. The rest is just a numbers game. He most likely just needs one to bounce off some defender's ass and deflect in...from there I think he can fill the net.

    I wanna see my boy Howdy Dooty get a few more on this road trip. I like his game. He seems to be in position a lot of the time.

    Pionk's stick was really good, but he's pretty passive, especially in the neutral zone. He doesn't seem to make it difficult for guys to enter the zone, and that probably plays quite a bit into his analytics being so poor (even though Staal was a total anchor last night).

    The issue with Pionk is that I don't think he's a good enough athlete - size, speed, strength - to be able to play a whole lot more aggressively.

    Could be...but he's an NHLer for sure, not bad for an undrafted signing.

    I agree he needs to get bigger and stronger. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with his speed.

    Well considering we were planning on finishing last this season, Iíd say we already knew that.

    I donít buy Skjei as the future of the defense and every time Pionk plays I think he stands out above everyone else. Staal, McQuaid, Smith, Shattenkirk donít impress but they will not be here when this thing rights itself ó or even beyond this season.
