If I had to pick 'em today

Hutchinson nets one lower-left photo: slam hockey

After two preseason games, it's time for the Good, Bad, Ugly Report

The Good
Ziggy: Looks like Mike Zigomanis is playing his tail off. After authorizing his agent to pursue a trade in the off season, he seems to be playing like a man who knows it might be his last chance to stick. He leads the NHL in total preseason points as of today, and at least one of his goals against the Panthers was a very nasty wrister from the slot.

Hutchinson: Might be a steal of a deal. Very smooth skating on the penetration and goal he scored vs. the Panthers (both Nikki and Hutchinson scored).

The Bad
Brendl: Reports from game eye witnesses indicate Krispy has pretty lethargic on the ice. He might be taking that last train to Pilsen.

The Ugly
Gerber: Looked slow and unathletic on the grainy highlight reel. Let's see if Ward's play in the first game was the real deal.
