I absolutely agree with you on Brenner. If you didn't watch Nyquist last year though, he did very well in his NHL stint. The guy generates scoring chances very well and is good with the puck. He's no Datsyuk with it, but with the stuff he does for as young as he is, he makes it look like he could turn out to be a star.

He floated between the first and bottom line last year, with the main problem being that against some teams (And St. Louis actually comes to mind) he was so light that he got rag-dolled around. He gained a good amount of weight over the offseason and, so I've read, he's much stronger on the puck now.
