I don't know if many of you get to watch him, but I have been real impressed with Danny Irmen. I love the way he plays, I don't think he will ever be an offensive superstar in the NHL but a solid 3rd or 4th liner with the bility to score 10-15 goals a year. Just plays the way you should play...and a lot meaner! :yo:
Koivu is marching up the TPS scoring ladder - he was buried on their scoring chart a month ago, now he's where you'd want a 2nd line center to be. 30+ points would be a reasonable improvement for him, given the injuries, etc.
O'Sullivan is pretty amazing, nearly a goal a game, 8th in league scoring after missing time with WJC, suspension, and injury. For the 2nd year in a row, the Wild will have the rights to the leading goal scorer in the OHL after Corey Locke.
Bolduc is also looking pretty good - the Wild's other problem child late round steal.
