1)Tanguay - machine and fighting for the puck every shift
2)Markov - just a god when it comes to set ups
3)Koivu - strong 2 way play

HM: Gorges, Hamrlik

Blah
1)O'Byrne - bad passes, stupid mistakes and lack of speed
2)Komisarek - just bad decision making, going for the hit instead of playing the puck
3)Lapierre (should sit a couple of game for Chipchura). - has done absolutely nothing. Literally just skates around trying to hit people, and besides that has played poor defensively.

I still believes that he will get somewhere between 45-60 points

Sorry, but that's substituting faith for reason. Better convert to another religion that doesn't have a St. Sergei.

Nonsense. S.Kostitsyn is on pace for 41 points despite having an admittedly slow start.

You worried about any of the players individually ? I'm a bit concerned about A.Kost. but last year at this point, he was no farther ahead, Komo's a bit tentative, Lats has gone cold, but overall, I see team play a bit off, but player for player, I'm not worried.

3rd Star - Koivu
2nd Star - Markov
1st Star - Tanguay

3rd Bust - A. Kost
2nd Bust - Lapierre
1st Bust - O'Byrne

I do think Andrei will start producing and I believe O'Byrne's play will solidify as the season progresses.

Stars
1. Saku
2. Tanguay(we really need a surname for him)
3. Lats on the first line

Busts
1. Sergei
2. Komi
3. Lats on the third line

Kovy has been a strange case thus far as he's been getting some points and he's trying but his game is all over the place.

Even though as mentionned, Sergei would be considered a minor bust for me...he's still produced 3 goals, 3 assists in 12 games. I can think of many other highly touted sophomores that are struggling much more then him.

I still expect him to be able to crack 50 points on the 3rd line this year...which is good no matter what team it is.

Disapointments -

Lapierre - He just has zero hockey sense - He's like a chicken with no head out there.
Brisebois - He's worse then I could have ever imagined!
Wait.. LAPIERRE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

You suck man. Seriously. Disappeared a bit last games, but he's at the very worst middle of the pack. The fact you inserted Latenderesse AND Brisebois pretty much explain my comment, and gives a hint about what you're trying to start here.

I mean... Brisebois is our 7th D-Men. And the thing is, he's playing better than our so-called 4th D-Men now. How can he be a bust if he outperforms a guy who's supposed to be better than him, when the said guy isn't in your bust list?

If you really think Brisebois is more disappointing than OByrne, please, cheer for the Islanders.

that's his opinion, don't like it, don't read it...
and I guess telling him that he sucks makes you even worse

1st STAR: Markov (not the last 2 games but he is getting too much ice-time)
2nd STAR: Koivu
3rd STAR(S): Hamrlik/Tanguay/Gorges







3rd BUST: Latendresse (he has been a star and a bust at the same time; yes...he's young; and can he ever be consistent with or without Koivu? it's like his career depends soooo much, toooo much on Koivu...can Latendresse survive without Koivu? ).

2nd BUST: Komisarek (not playing like he can, he is reminding me of Rivet out there; btw, I'm a huuuge Komi fan, but still...playing like this he better not ask for 5 mil).

1st BUST: O'Byrne (imo, major confidence problems; but, with time...confidence/experience will come)

I definitly have not seen anything wrong with Lapierre.
