The PK is a good point, but understand the rosters named are most likely not the actual ones they would choose.
Good European Penalty Killers:
Michael Grabner- Austria- his speed will also be valuable in this game. We all forget about him
Milan Michalek- Czech- Another solid 3rd or 4th liner you can have out there, put up 60points last year with Karlsson and Alfredsson on his team
Frans Nielson- Denmark- Another great penalty killer and solid player
Marian Hossa- Slovakia- Amazingly talented forward whose also a VERY underrated PK
Darren Helm- I focused on bigger stars but hes exactly what a european PK is all about... take control and bring it deep into the other zone.
Alex Ovechkin- is not a reliable defensive structured player but his speed late in a PK could come of use for a counterattack as he has done so with Washington many times
Mikko Koivu- A solid smart poised defensive minded player
Tomas Plekanac- On mostly everyones top 20 PK in the NHL, some rate him in top 10
Carl Hagelin- Maybe hes too young and underdeveloped for this game, or maybe hes more mature than his age shows and his speed might be the most useful thing on a 3rd 4th line plus PK... which he has done now for the Rangers on a normal basis and for Michigan 3 years in a row as a starter.
Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg to name other guys...
