Christian Dvorak's wink to Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Phillip Danault

Yes, it was a simple exhibition game that meant nothing. But in these matchups, the young guys have to leave their hearts on the ice, and then the veterans who are fighting for a spot have to compete to the max. In the case of players already assured of a position, they must set an example, even if these are only preparation games.

On Monday night, the Drouin-Dvorak-Anderson combination showed leadership by putting their foot down, even if it didn't count. The three players quickly found each other, naturally, proving that this unit has all the elements for a near perfect fit.

Number 92 was flying, we saw him in full possession. Jo looks really good mentally and physically, then if his level remains like this, he will be a high level "addition" to this team.

In Anderson's case, I sense a man who has learned in the last season. He seems to be aware of the things he needs to do to not fall into a long lethargy. The "power horse" was simply imperial on Monday night!

As for the new kid, what a start, right? Dvorak, without being flashy, scored a total of four points, while showing how much hockey IQ he has. He's going to make a lot of friends this year, this one.

As I've stated many times before, he is superior in every way to Phillip Danault and Jesperi Kotkaniemi. I say that with all due respect, but it's important to say the real thing. The best part about this is that D-Vo is only 25 years old... He will form a "one two punch" for several years with Nick Suzuki.

In short, he sent a nice wink to Mr. Danault and Mr. Kotkaniemi!
