I absolutely hate the Flyers, so it really pains me to say this, but Pitkanen has been the best rookie this year so far, as well as one of the best defensemen. And by the way, there is more to offense than point totals. Just his puck carrying ability is enough to make someone take notice.
so is zidlicky's, though. i've seen him fake\deke through 4-5 different players to score\set up a goal. that's WHAT makes him so good, in addition to his vision.
