Early thoughts on the new season

BY foxsports • October 6, 2009

I realize it's really, really early, but...

...it's great to see referee Stephen Walkom back on the ice. It has been five years between meaningful whistles for Walkom and the on-ice product is better for his return.

...there have been 23 games so far and 21 fights and not a single instigator penalty has been called yet. That's a joke.

...the San Jose Sharks got a goal Saturday night from Benn Ferriero that was assisted by Jason Demers and Frazer McLaren. Huh?
