I prefer to think of this effect as Blind Optimism.

Gaborik - He is a lot like Wolverine. He has enhanced senses. Unlike Wolverine, he uses it to avoid pain, by keeping away from dangerous situations. Like Wolverine, he also had his skeleton infused with a substance. Unlike Wolverine, it wasn't Adamantium, it was glass.

Zuccarello - Did Frodo have a superpower? I guess not - he just needs his precious.

Staal - He has no soul. This is not because of his superpower though, unless you consider being a ginger a superpower.

Biron - A psychic. He can only apply it to the shootout though.

Del Zotto and Boyle - Power Rangers, duh!

Chris Drury - This is a hard reference but maybe some of you will get this. He is like the vulture from Spiderman. He was always great at getting leftovers and superb around the net. Vulture unfortunately needs to drain others of youth to maintain his youth, and not become a useless pile of junk. I guess Drury hasn't found any victims lately.

Dubinsky is only good at jumping on mushrooms, and collecting stars, making him Super Dubinsky. It makes him look like a superstar for about 30 seconds or so.

Brandon Prust
Powers: Resistance to pain. Works well with Brian Boyle and Ruslan Fedotenko.
Weaknesses: To be discovered.

Brian Boyle
Powers: He can go hulk on you. Plus he's Will Turner when he has a mustache. So um he's the Pirate Hulk.
Weaknesses: Bigger people, his own wrist shots.

Erik Christensen
Powers: 2 shootout moves and an occasionally good wrist shot. Needs early points to succeed.
Weaknesses: Hard hits, bigger people, smaller people, not understanding who his teammates are and his ultra feminine like demeanor. He shouldn't be on the ice at the same time as Matt Gilroy, their combined estrogen would lead to an instant forfeit and several suspensions.

Matt Gilroy
Powers: Ability to show up in the playoffs. Has an armadillo like shell he uses to avoid hits.
Weaknesses: Just about everything.

Sean Avery
Powers: Agitation. He hasn't quite displayed this power in a while.
Weaknesses: Fashion, women and by some reports John Tortorella.

Dan Girardi
Powers: Puck deflection.
Weaknesses: Being without Staal or sometimes McDonagh.

Marc Staal
Powers: He can turn into a wall.
Weaknesses: Classified.

Steve Eminger
Powers: He works for Geico?
Weaknesses: Progressive? Allstate?

Chris Drury
Powers: Intangibles:
Weaknesses: Younger players, injuries and definitely not weekends.

Bryan McCabe
Powers: His slapshot otherwise known as the "McCannon"
Weaknesses: Just about everything. Not to be paired with Matt Gilroy. The two can lead to bad defensive coverage and multiple odd man rushes.

Mike Sauer
Powers: Player defenender. Mess with his teammates and he'll sit you on your ***.
Weaknesses: Classified

Ryan McDonagh
Powers: Ultra acceleration. You think he isn't close behind? Give him a second. He's also a wall in training.
Weaknesses: Turnovers?

Wojtek Wolski
Powers: Shootout abilities?
Weaknesses: Laziness, and inability to compete.

Derek Stepan
Powers: Can score hat tricks in his first NHL game. Has an attractive mother and girlfriend. Both look very similar so he may be a cloner.
Weakness: Fatigue.

Marian Gaborik
Powers: Can score "Gabotricks." Has a good shot. Also has invisibility, but that might be a weakness.
Weakness: Is afraid of hits and is made of glass.

Vinny Prospal
Powers: Ultra goal celebration powers. He likes to party like a rookie.
Weaknesses. His legs.

Ruslan Fedotenko
Powers: Ability to disguise himself as a baby?
Weaknesses: ?

Brandon Dubinsky
Powers: Ability to light it up for 30 games.
Weaknesses: The other 52 games.

Ryan Callahan
Powers: Ability to lead and succeed.
Weaknesses: Zdeno Chara

Marty Biron
Powers: Shootout savant.
Weaknesses: Bad defense.

Henrik Lundqvist
Powers: He's a king and a wall.
Weaknesses: Classified.

Mats Zuccarello
Powers: Hobbit death stare. Can get into places as a child.
Weaknesses: Bigger people.

Avery - He can see 1 second into the future. Unfortunately, he can't control the power and it forces him to go offsides often.

Boyle - Heightened choreography skills due to intensive training with a figure skater. He only takes backhand shots because they look better on film.

Prust - The ability to stop anyone's fist with his face.

Boogaard - Projects an aura of calm around himself, within which no one need be afraid. Unfortunately, this includes the opposing players as well.

The whole team -

Superior conditioning. With this ability, they almost always go the entire 200 feet to get to the opposing net, just to show off.

Enhanced Hindsight - This ability causes them to pass the puck to where the other player should have been, rather than where he is.
This is just brilliant.

Another OT: Haven't you heard? Kong is dead! http://winter-is-coming.net/2011/04/is-the-dance-done/

(I know it's been ages, but he only has 2 books left and 5 years to get it done before the show catches up to him)

If he only has 5 years left, then he better pick up the pace, lol. I like the story, just hard to trust an author that doesn't seem to have the same passion for writing the story that his fans have for reading it.

Robert Jordan milked The Wheel of Time, but at least he kept to a predictable schedule, and left copious notes for Sanderson to follow up on.

I don't think that's a fair assessment with respect to GRRM. It's just that the plot is so complex, he had some gigantic knots to untangle to make sure the timeline and a host of other minor details were kosher. It doesn't help that he's also a perfectionist. But I have faith.

Why? His tenure as a Ranger has more people crying than the Royal Wedding.

Except for Sather, who's secretly happy he kept the money out of Dolan's overstuffed pocket.
