Out of these guys, Kadri. Though I don't know what your criteria for "breakthrough" is. Somebody like Duchene should be on here before Emery.

Lol this...

It's Kadri ainec. Maybe Bob is 2nd.

Kadri went from bust to top center, Bob went from backup/starter tweener to a Vezina candidate

There is a reason I gave my vote to OEL. His Corsi QoC is top 4 in all defense man. He wasn't even top 30 last season. His point production is also trending upwards with pace to 42 points in a 82 game schedule vs 32 points last season.

this.
Horrible list options.
Most of these players were established as good players. Going from good to great isn't exactly 'breakthrough'
it should be between Kadri, Tlusty, OEL and Bobrovsky imo.
Even OEL and Bob have had 'good' seasons. Kadri and Tlusty were the biggest suprises of the year.

Bobrovsky

undrafted, was never anything special on one of the top teams in the league, was traded for picks, and now is arguably one of the top goalies in the league right now. He is also carrying his team (which has the lowest goals for total in the league) to a few points out of a playoff spot.

A lot of them have been good players for quite some time - Hall has been a stud since his rookie year, Emery made the finals in 2007, etc.

I'll take Bobrovsky, he used to be "one of those guys on Philly's goalie carousel" now he is a Vezina candidate.

I don't think the answer can be anyone but Taylor Hall.

Derek Stepan should have been a choice.

Still would have voted Bob though.

Maybe breakthrough is the wrong word, he's been the biggest surprise superstar

No Stepan?

34 points in 40 games?
25 points in last 22 games?

Isn't that the definition of breaking out?

Kadri with Bob as second

Most of these options had already broken out.

Hall has improved significantly this season but I wouldn't say that he broke through. IMO His break through season was his rookie season/last season.

I would go with Kadri or Bobrovsky.

To me, OEL and Subban as a couple of other seemingly popular choices, were already this good last year. Subban didn't have the PP points last year, but aside from that, he was used more and carried a much heavier load last year than this year. I don't think guys like these really fit the "breakthrough" label.
