Gallagher - Solid gold but needs to be surrounded
Plekanec - Little girl etc.
Bouillon - Tank! Getting old though
Diaz - GAH! No jam.
Players that are 6'0"
Jeff Halpern - Good 13th forward
Michael Ryder - Floater with a shot. Zero grit.
Ryan White - Love the kid!
Andrei Markov - Tries... aging fast
PK Subban - Tries... nothing back up the mouth.
Players more than 6'0"
Alex Galchenyuk - Has heart, does try.
Colby Armstrong - A shell of his former self - no longer a grinder.
Rene Bourque - Lackluster. I like the guy, buy he floats and isn't always a gamer.
Lars Eller - Getting better, terrible fighter
Travis Moen - No longer a grinder... hardly hits, rarely fights
Brandon Prust - Heart and soul!
Josh Gorges - Heart and effort, but...
Drew Drewisky - Not at all physical
Alexei Emelin - HUGE hits... shouldn't fight
Jared Tinordi - Too early to tell
I'm actually sold on Tinordi if he can put on some muscle this summer, he's gonna become a Pronger type of D-man. I mean I've watched him in the juniors and he dominated the O with his size and physicality and won almost all his bouts, except one with a career enforcer. He played in the A this season and physically was dominating the league with ease, won more fights than he lost. He's actually the only hab who didn't lose a fight last game during the brawl, lol.
