If Darryl Sutter can turn Daniel Carcillo into a respectable fourth line wing, then please let’s put Sutter in charge of the Syrian thing, dealing with Iran, fixing the Middle East (you know it’s only the “middle” east if you’re standing in Western Europe, right?) in general and, while we’re at it, taking care of the U.S. economy, while the Obama administration becomes a healthy scratch…now that I have offended some of you…

This was kind of fun, right? The forecheck cometh. Willie Mitchell cometh. Watching Kopitar and Williams in great shape and star form makes my hockey boner cometh.

I didn’t think “beast mode” applied to preseason games but, holy smoke, Justin Williams was in it.

Kopi should have had a hat-trick.

Dwight King’s pass to Kopitar was perfect. Hit 11 in stride. Dwight King, absent that embarrassment that should not be called a fight, was pretty not bad. I shall not get excited.

So Matt Frattin. I finally noticed him in the third period where he was doing stuff. The forechecking, skating with the puck on his stick, looking to make plays, using his size kind of stuff. I liked it. Before that, it was all pancakes.

Speaking of Penner, did he play after he took that penalty in the first? Yes? When? I hear he is in Boudreau’s dog house already. You haven’t lived until you have had a grown man made of wet clay bag skate your ass. Enjoy Anaheim, pancakes.

Jerks haven’t answered my question yet.

Jeff Carter was warming up toward dangerous.

Mike Richards’ head was still partially fishing.

Trevor Lewis is “All American.” Love him. If he had hands…oh, if he had hands

Kyle Clifford had jump, hit a lot, provided energy…and that is about what a fourth line player is supposed to do.

Jonathan Mother Sutting Quick. Just keep pouring on the adjectives to describe his greatness.

Willie Mitchell wasn’t the Willie Mitchell of the 2011-2012 season but damn it was nice having him back. You can tell he needs more time and some of his reads (easy to judge from where I am sitting, I know) are off but the guy is such a stud at keeping the crease clear and make subtle smart plays that break up an opposing team’s offensive opportunities. And those nice passes out of the defensive zone. Seriously, if we had Willie in the playoffs, we would have been playing Boston.

Slava Voynov skates like I wish I did and don’t. His stride is sutting perfect. He may be the best skater on the team.

Alec Martinez you fucking haters and malcontents. Did you see what a healthy Martinez can do when reunited with Matt Greene? Tell me you want Jake Muzzin or Keaton Ellerby? Tell me you’re dumb and know nothing about the importance of gap control and patience with the puck, especially under pressure? It’s Alec’s job to lose.

Anaheim is our bitch.
