1. Weimer - Just doesn't bring much to the table. Very docile and not an offesive threat at all.

2. Ninnamaa - Very spotty and not worth all the hype. Good player to offload for a more physical pkg.

3. Papineau - Just can't kick start it in the regular season, good moves but holds it a little too long at the Nhl level.

Bergeheim won't stay too much longer. His defensive positioning needs alot of work. Yesterdays 2nd goal has him on the right of the faceoff circle with no Canadiean around. Easy pass for Robiero to the slot as no one was there.
Theres not too many of them, but here they come:
1) Hamrlik-huge, huge dissapointment, should be our#1 Dman, but playing like he doesn't care much. Not showing any leadership, and just playing like a #3/4 Dman. I think he'll wake up later in the season.
2) Bates-even though I dont really expect much from him, he hasn't been playing well. Is not doing things he did 1st year.
3) Niinimaa-hes been steady but I expected more from him.
