Good effort against a team that is lot better on paper than on ice (though that Brodin is something else). Hamhuis was outstanding. Also, the change to put him with Edler has made a big difference to Edler's game. Although Garrison was v. good defensively, his outlet passing wasn't. great bounce back game from Weise and good on him for taking on a bona fide goon like Konopka not once but twice. Wild played the Sedins and Burrows hard - still got on the scoreboard. Line makeup was the best we've had all year. Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen looked really good out there. best effort by Kassian not with the Sedins. I didn't think it was possible but our goaltending and defensive play might be even better than last year. There needs to be a Bieksa appreciation thread - he has been the team's de facto leader so far this season.
