Can't say Kostitsyn, Higgins, Plekanec, Danis, Perezhogin or Locke surprised me much because I was expecting big things from them, so....

Grabovski is one guy who has seemed to surpass expectations for sure, so I would probablely go with him. Milroy has also, imo, surpassed what I expected as well, especially of late.

I say Grabovski. I didn't expect anything like this from him. He was a pleasant surprise. And to hear he could come over next year is great.

With a very close 2nd place vote to Corey Locke. I didn't think he would adapt this well to the pro game. He's doing extremely well.

HM to Halak. For such a late pick, I didn't have high expectations for him. He's doing fine though.

I expected a lot from Perez since he was drafted and he hasn't failed me.


I had no idea what to expect from Locke, though. He has been a very, very pleasant surprise.

I'll assume you mean surprised me in a positive way... (as opposed to some who surprised me in a negative way). I'm pleased with the advancement shown by Locke, Lindberg, and Grabovski (exceeded expectations), but the one who surprised me most was:

Danis.

I guess because I never knew anything about him at all before (aside from stats), and had no idea if he would become a real prospect or not. And he certainly has.

A toss up between Grabovski and Locke for me, although I'll say Grabovski by a hair since Locke I thought had what it takes to do well in the AHL, I just didn't expect anything to materialize so soon. Grabovski I didn't know a thing about and was quite shocked to see him be that successful in the RSL, especially considering there are quite a few quality NHLers that play there right now.

Honorable mention to Danis who although I had high hopes for given his good couple of games late last year with Hamilton, I didn't expect him to be one of the biggest reasons we're still in the playoff race at this time.

Plekanec, Higgins, Perezhogin, Kostitsyn, etc. are right where I expected them to be, so no surprise there.

Corey Locke, I really didn't expect much from him before the season, and he's playing great. He really has impressed me so far!

I wonder if Alexi Yemelin (or Emelin) should get honourable mention here.

If I recall at the beginning of the year he was a long shot to make the U-20 team, so.....

Voted Locke. Perezhogin has surpised in the sense that I thought his suspension from the AHL may have hindered his development, but he seems to be doing excellent.

Locke, however, has been pegged as a junior scorer and nothing more since we drafted him but he's jumped into a men's league with relative ease. Not saying he'll definitely be an NHLer, but his chances are a lot better now then they were in the past.

Got to go with Grabovsky, who I would have never thought would lead his team in scoring, and be in the top 15 in the league with all the NHLers playing.

Locke I never expected to have so much offensive production. What a rookie year he's having.

Even Linhart I'm surprised by. I didn't think he would land a spot in the top league, after playing in several leagues last year, he was able to land a spot even with all the NHLers on the team and in the league.

Heino-Lindberg I was very impressed with at camp, but I didn't expect him to be the top goalie in the tier-2 league as a 19 year old. Nice work!

Sanford as well, he was leading his ECHL team in scoring for defensemen and was named to the All Stars, then gets called up and shows some good offensive skills.

Greg Stewart is having a very good year. I really liked what I saw from him at camp but was wondering if his offensive game would develop. He's a guy that seems to work very hard, so I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do.

Perezhogin. I never expected him to go to Russia and be so good. He's playing in the 2nd best league in the world and playing very well. It just shows how much talent and character he has.

Grabovsky , the kid is small but very skilled.I didn't expect him to produce that much in the RSL , THAT EARLY !!! They made a nice pick! He's also the second youngest on his team.

montreal...Drodetzky(sp?) has been transfered to Grabov team , will that gonna help him (Grabs)to produce even more or help the team? Because , Drodetzky has been doing great , as of late.

Same for me. I was anxious about the fact that he will miss one year in the AHL, but now I see that is doesn't matter now

So far it's helped his team as he had a hattrick the other day. I don't know what line he's playing on, so I can't say how it will effect Grabovsky.

I'm not sure if there are playing on the same line but Grabovsky assisted on Drozdetsky goal today.
