Besides the obvious Giroux and Timonen, I really really like Wayne Simmonds. Growing up my favorite NHL players were Ron Hextall and Kevin Dineen (the Whaler...by the time he got to Philly injuries and Crohn's disease really killed his offensive game), and Wayne Simmonds reminds me so much of a young Kevin Dineen. I'm not sure the offensive upside is the same (KD has a 45G season on his resume), but the speed, grit, willingness to fight anybody...it's all there.
Now if we could just get Bryz chopping guys and handling the puck like Hexy...
