From the few times I've seen Lowell this season, Petr Vrana and Noah Clarke are two of the only players who seem to have the heart, not just the skill set.

I don't know how well know Mike Sauer is, but I wouldnt be suprised if he played in the NHL next season. Could become a exceptional stay at home D.

Lauri Korpikoski could suprise some people. He needs to take another big step, getting a bit faster and a bit more explosive; but he got a really high skillevel overall, and a tremendous workethic.

A supersleeper could be Corey Potter. He is pretty "sexy" for a low key, late round pick, D. Very good lateral movement, solid size, good positioning and ok hands. Age is speaking against him, he will probably need 2 more years in the AHL, and it gets allot harder to get chances as a rookie at the age of 25-26 then if you are 22-23, and it also seems harder to stay positive and work hard at that age. But he could become a solid NHL D, like a Aaron Miller copy.

I like him a lot, he has impressed me when I've seen him. Given a few years to develop in the AHL I think he could pan out to be a nice player in the NHL.
