From the looks of things Hemsky is on fire, playing in the Czech league.
Ferraro plays with quite a bit of grit especially considering his frame and is the teams best pk player in Grand Rapids. He is very good in his own zone and can play both wing and center. I understand taking a pass, but that doesn't really describe the game he plays. He does need to add another 10 or 15 lbs to be a really good NHL pro. To give you an idea most Wings fans think he reminds them of some cross between Cleary and Helm, he has plenty of jam in his game and is defensively responsible.
