there was a load taken off the team and Murphy simplified the system given the 1 day of practice. They also played a team that isn't very good. Let's see how things shake out over the next couple of weeks.

They still should be playing all the young kids and keeping vets that won't be on the team in the future on the bench. This season is going nowhere and no sense doing something dumb like making a trade or getting to the 1st round only to get destroyed by the Caps or Pens.
