After watching the Subway Super series last night, here's my take.
Danault - One of the best Q skaters both defensively and offensively. Always going to the dirty areas without hesitation, and usually winning puck battles. Hit's everything he can, knows how to break out of the defensive zone without icing it or slowing down the transition. His shot isn't overly impressive, and he passed up a great oppurtunity to shoot the puck from the slot. I'm sure he will learn those small things as he get's older though. Easily our best prospect from the game.
Fournier - Didn't notice him much, but did notice a couple of times where he interrupted the Russians from cycling the puck and angled the opposition into the corners on several rushes. They had him on the point on the PP at the begininng of the game, but didn't notice him out there after the 1st. Has a lot of work to do, but could be a decent depth guy if he doesn't improve his offensive game.
Shalunov - didn't notice him much, but had a couple really good plays and has a wicked wrist shot. Reminded me of Jeremy Morin a little bit.
Grigorenko and Yakupov were the best players by far on the ice. No one else on either team looked like they were as NHL ready as those 2.
