Very pleased with hickey and strait. Strait had more games, so i hope we can expect more of the same from him. Hickey shows he has upside.
Comparing the two periods, Grabs had an insane amount of breakaways during his first season because teams were not prepared for him and that blazing speed. Right now he is gettng less chances because they do know about him, but he is still getting more than most around the NHL. You can't keep talent down for long.
