I would say the goalies are a bit of a question mark at this point. Both have played well in spurts but both have allowed some flukey goals. At this point Andersen is above Bobkov.
Defense have been good Guenin is leading the league with a plus 7. Lindholm has played well for his age for sure. He is going to be a strong defensive D man in the NHL for many years. Sami offensively is very gifted and is at an elite NHL level with regards to offense. IMO the jury is still out a bit on how his Defensive game will hold up at the NHL level.
Holland is playing his role and getting his points. The line of Maroon-Holland-Palmieri are strong on the PP with Palmieri playing the point with Sami. It seems like the the 2nd and 3rd line combos are still working themselves out. Elkins and Lasch play well together and have had Mitchell and Etem as the other wing each of the last 2 weekends I think.
Wagner is playing with Bodie and Rosehill on the 4th line. They've played a big role and all 3 have scored in the first 4 games. Wagner and Bodie each had short handed goals and each assisted on the others last weekend. Looks like he has skill to his game, wondering if the org just sees him as a 4th line guy or if they'll give him some offensive opportunities down the line.
