Now having seen 3 Barons games I will comment and so on:

Andrew Miller: solid two-way player, undersized and a little slow, very smart player

Anton Lander: has looked excellent. Big, fast, etc. Probably the Barons best all around forward so far

Linus Omark: runs hot and cold but can do things that most guys in the NHL can't do when he feels like it. Seems like he's just now getting in shape.

Derek Nesbitt: good two-way guy, good shooter. Might be a decent callup option

Tyler Pitlick: has been skating his brains out, big, fast, throwing his weight around like he was 2 years ago. No offensive ability whatsoever but is a very useful player

Kessy/Ewanyk/Eager: put these three together as they've been playing together. It is basically the Hansons: they skate around really fast running into things and are largely disinterested in the puck. Very fun to watch but they tend to get stuck in their own end a lot because they can't handle the puck or pass very well. The young guys might end up being useful bottom 6ers.

Ryan Martindale: has been better, but has a tendency to disappear

Matthew Ford: big disappointment, next to invisible despite getting some decent minutes

CJ Stretch: see: Ford, M

Philip Larsen: easily the team's best player, best skater we've ever seen in the building all respect to Hall and RNH. Great hands, good passer, pretty solid in his own zone (even hits guys sometimes now). Also just discovered he has a cannon of a shot, he's playing the top of the umbrella on the PP. Dawdles with the puck too much.

Oscar Klefbom: magnificent skater, great skills, a total mess with the puck in his own zone. Far too many turnovers. Positioning also needs a lot of work.

Taylor Fedun: solid as always, probably about at his upper limit. Does everything pretty well

Musil/Gernat: I get these two mixed up but they look pretty similar. Both are pretty smart and good defensively but both are just offensively slow. Long way to go but they haven't been a huge liability so far.

Brandon Davidson: hasn't been as good as last year so far

Brad Hunt: really good PMD, pretty solid defensively as well. Probably not NHL material but he's playing good minutes here

Martin Marincin: looks similar to last year, pretty good skater, average defensively, good hands, big shot that takes way, way too long to get off

Richard Bachman: has been just awesome so far. Brilliant.
