Martin Erat should get some consideration. He was a good rookie (33 points in 80 games) but then tanked last year (8 points in only 27 games). Since then, he has 43 points in 67 games and has been one of our most consistant players.
Walker, as mentioned, has had a nice year. People forget that Walker had 25 goals and 29 assists in 74 games in 2000. Injuries have really limited his effectiveness in the past two years. This year, he is fully healthy and has a nice complement of players with which to work. I don't think it's a stretch to say he's a legit 20 goal, 50 point guy.
Another guy is Kris Draper (atleast statiscally). I don't think he is any better, but his numbers sure are. Like Lehtinen last year, things are just finding the twine.
