I really like Florek, what a solid player he can be.

Maybe you can tell me more of Garrett Noonan OC? I saw him a handful of times this year, but man is this kid scoring big goals or what?? can he keep anything like this up at the AHL/NHL level in your opinion?

Thanks Oilers Chick...
I think so, especially the way his development has come along. This is not to say that he will sign with Nashville this off-season, although anything is possible.

Noonan is a great puck-moving defenseman. He skates really well, although I think Clendening is a better skater. But Noonan has more power in his strides. He does a good job of taking care of his own, but the two thinks I'd like to see him improve his decision-making, especially in puck distribution, and being a bit more disciplined. His decision-making at times this season was terrible. There was one game, I believe it was against Maine, where he had a man open on his right side just inside Maine's blueline and for some strange reason threw the puck up the middle where it was nearly picked off by a Maine player. Noonan plays a with a good amount of grit, but he also took some bad penalties this year. If he can improve those areas, he could be a very good at the next level.

Fleury and Smallz: What specifically would like to know about them?
