Same order for me (almost).

Price - for once his numbers speak for themselves. Couldn't ask for more, other than the cautionary note that he was equally great last season for 40 games.

Gallagher not only avoided any sophomore slump, he's actually improved. He's the engine for the EGG line, which makes him the engine for the team's offense. Can't say enough good things about this kid -- he plays a relentless offensive game, but is right there in our zone, whacking away until he gets the puck. Fastest shot-release on the team.

Subban has become a guided missile and a rocket-launcher. Tries to do too much occasionally, but the challenge should be for the forwards to keep up with him, NOT for him to slow down for the forwards.

Markov - the Hutch to PK's Starsky. Spock to PK's Kirk. Bert to PK's Ernie.

Galchenyuk's hands are starting to have fun. I'm having fun watching them have fun. Go Hands Go.

Plekanec - As fast and smart as ever. Also as stuck with sub-par wingers as ever. Guy's a machine of consistency.

Eller's cooled off a bit, but has proven himself to be a tough, smart playmaker. I want to see the swagger back in his game.

Bournival is already one of the fastest skaters and quickest shooters on the team, now he just needs time and experience. Great find.

H.M. - Budaj has been a game-changer in his limited role. Couldn't ask for a better backup.
