+ Vokoun

+ the Defense (singling out Despres, though. Goal notwithstanding he's looking comfortable after a terribly rocky start)

+ Jeffrey. Just such a smart guy. Seems to have chemistry with Malkin. Wish he had more weapons. They should get Rick Kehoe to teach him how to put some mustard on his shot, like he did with Jagr.

~Malkin. His hand is clearly bothering him. Only shooting as a last resort. If his hand was not bothering him, that 2 on 1 with DJ ends up in the net.

- Kunitz. Just too many pointless turnovers. Again. Guy like him can't be doing that.

- the Rangers. The guys they traded for Rick Nash didn't match Nash's value, imo. However, they subtracted two hard-working fast-ish players from their lineup and got one good skater back. Rangers have a big-time team speed issue (Stepan, Richards, Girardi, Boyle, Bickell, Halpern...all average to below average speed), and it's only gotten worse by subtracting AA and Dubinsky and adding Asham. I'm anxious to see how they handle someone like Grabner the next time they play the Isles.
