I'm probably in the minority, but Kadri still managed to impress me tonight. All the creativity in the world, which has always been somewhat of a rarity in Leafland over the past little while. Some of the stuff he does with the puck, most other players brains wouldn't even have time to process so quickly, let alone have the skill to complete them. He also is surprisingly strong on the puck, and on his skates. A few times I was expecting him to lose the puck in a crowd, and somehow he'd appear with the puck still on his stick. AND of course his aggressive style... anyways his combination of skill, grit and balance is just a very uncommon thing in the NHL. Overall I liked his game.

Otherwise, I was really impressed with Olden and I liked Mueller's game, and Holzer quietly impressed me. Holzer physically reminds me alot of Phaneuf, they both got that hunched kind of look and similar faces. Anyone else?
