Yep! This is the year the reigns have been taken off Hedman, clearly. He's already in game shape from his time in he's got plenty of help now.

We have yet to really see Salo's other dimension, which is on the PP. He's your ideal guy on the right point, the problem is him staying healthy. Ideally, as Aulie grows you bump up his minutes and you give him the harder minutes...while you give Salo the less physical PP minutes and save him for the playoffs. A short season is favorable news for us in that regards!

The Mausoleum strikes again. That place sucks.

That was definitely a 'wtf' moment. I'm still not clear on why there was a penalty.

What's with the picture of Aulie in Leafs uniform, RSchmitz?

I can tell because of the stripes.

Sorry TS. It actually became a rather large problem last year. Manny Malhotra began using his hand to bat the puck back when his stick got tied up on defensive zone faceoffs. As with everything, it began to spread. A number of teams began using it is a faceoff tool and the league wanted to put a stop to it before it became wide spread.
