Barry’s Take On The West

from Barry Melrose of ESPN,
We're about a month into the season, and I am glad the new NHL is holding up. Goals are up, players are getting smarter about not taking as many penalties and teams are adapting to the new style. So having said that, here's The Good, The Bad and The Ugly for this week. THE GOOD West Coast teams never get as much attention as the New Yorks and the Philadelphias and the Detroits of the world. When I coached in Los Angeles, I learned to accept that. You hardly make SportsCenter because your games end later. But right now, we should be paying attention because all three California teams are playing well in a competitive Pacific Division.
