I have seen very little of Palmieri at lower levels but almost every scouting report I read said that he had a great shot and hockey sense, had agitating qualities and that he was willing to go into the corners and do the dirty work. When he first came up to Anaheim, he wasn't willing to do those things but by the end of the year, he was starting to look much more like the player he was advertised to be.
