Mostly went to see Kopitar. Really liked what I saw, but to me it seemed like he floated quite a bit getting back on D (anyone else notice this?). Some nice stick handling entering the zone, one pull and drag move really caught my eye as he looks very comfortable on the ice. For a Euro I was surprised to see him drive to the net as much as he did.....Hope to see him on the opening day roster....
Really liked the Gleason/Blake combo, the two seemed to play off each other well, physically and offensively.
All in all it was nice to see some hockey up close for the first time in a few months...
