Five reasons not to push the panic button October 18, 2010

We are now, what, six games into an 82-game season, right? The team has won only one game. I get that. However, here’s why I don’t think it’s time to PANIC:

  1. There are a fair number of new players on this team, especially defensemen. I think it takes longer for new defensemen and defense pairings to mesh than it does for forwards.
  2. Ryan Miller hasn’t been at his best at times, but he’ll come around. You can pretty much bank on that.
  3. The forwards not named Derek Roy will score. They will. Seriously.
  4. Tyler Myers will not slump for the entire season. He may not have the season he did last year, and yes, he may miss Hank Tallinder, but his play will improve.
  5. There are bright spots already, such as the overall play of Drew Stafford, the improvement over Adam Mair that is Cody McCormick, and the play of Derek Roy.

See, don’t you feel better now? If you still want to be a crankypants and argue with me about why I should be panicking go ahead and leave me a comment. Of course, if you agree I’ll take those comments as well!
