Hemsky surprises me in that he's more physical than I thought he was, and apparently can take abuse. He was plunked on his can after the goal the other night, and then blocked a shot that looked ugly later but came out the following period.
He's also one of those players who can go two periods without doing much then be the first star with three nice passes. God he's good.
The surprises to me are:
1. Bergeron. Based on what I've seen of him, I thought Northlands would be 18,000 people in the fetal position every time he touched the puck. Not so. He has made mistakes, but works like a bugger to make up for it on the same play. You have to respect that.
2. Salo. Can't really put my finger on what he's doing, but he seems to be less floppy and more intense.
3. Smyth. Does he have ANOTHER gear?
4. Comrie, for all the wrong reasons.
