Maybe it's my new 4K TV but that royal blue really pops.

It pops so brilliantly on TV, I think they specifically tested the blue on in the arena lighting with the TV cameras before selecting it for the changeover.  Sort of a lesson learned from the navy blue, which looked ok IRL, but looked black on TV.

Until something is confirmed otherwise, I am going to continue believing he hurt his shoulder in pre-season and it is hampering his stickhandling, shooting, etc.

But why is he so slow? Core injury perhaps? I hate speculating.... but he's soooo off. He looks more machine now than man.

I am so glad their 4th line didn't come back and score on the 1st line after they broke up Olofsson's rush.

Mitts is playing..... umm.... not bad?

He's got his wheels tonight and he looks motivated, like there's a fire singeing his rear curlys.  Makes sense, as every minute, he's fighting to stay on the roster.  If he's looking like that in practice, that's probably what RK is seeing in him.

He does look slow, doesn't have that extra gear to pull away.   My guess is back spasms.   Shoulder injury wouldn't prevent him from reaching top speed.

We have zero confirmation he is still injured, not a peep lately. This has sort of taken off and become fact around here lately. 

It could be true, but he could also easily be fine. I think it makes more sense to assume someone is healthy until told otherwise, he misses a practice, etc.

Unless he is in pain every pump. Hard skating (and running) causes me shoulder pain for the very same reason.

Agreed.  But whatever is going on he looks like a shell of what he was last year.
