Penner - A- Pretty much did it by himself, still had some low effort stretches
Whitney - *A- Played Great, well above reputation
Smid - B : Was really good with Lubo, wonder what he can do with a lesser partner
Brule - B : breakout year, was still benched for turnovers
Gagner - B- : Showed flashes, still too weak and boyish to reach potential
Comrie - B- : prorated to over 20 goals, and played games while still recovering from mono/flu. Showed great character
Gilbert - B- : Wimpy start, played better after Whitney was brought in, a real tale of 2 seasons
Johnson - B- : exceeded expectations, hope he resigns cheap next year ($675K)
Pouliot - C : Looked okay after his injury, which he wont be fully recovered from for another year. could be a decent 3/4th liner if he uses his body better and gets a better FO%
Stortini - C : Showed up every night, did his job, still needs to work on his skating.
Potulny - C : For a guy who was an early cut at camp he suprised. His AHL scoring translated well to the NHL for a rookie, but his D play was lacking.
Horcoff - D : D for dissapointing, has lost a stride, weak on the puck, was hurt, not worth his pay but showed signs he could rebound for 50-60 point season next year.
Pisani - C : Took lots of guts and heart to come back, but was very average when he played
Delauriers - C : Too many weak goals, could be a decent backup, not sure if he has it mentally to be a starter
Dubnyk - C : touogh start, took awhile to get used to the skill of NHL forwords, nice finish bhind AHL DMen
Cogliano - C : played hard, needs to elevate his overall game
Strudwick - C- : Should have only played 15-20 games max, too slow.
Chorney - D : Should have been in the AHL all year
Moreau - D- : poor leadership, bad penalties, good last 12 games
Nilsson - D- : Just doesnt get what it takes to be a winner
O'Sullivan - FU : The guy needs a heart transplant
Hemsky - B+ : was ppg while playing hurt on a bad team.
Khabby - B - on the ice, F- off of it.
Jones - C- : didnt really play the power forward game as strong as I hoped, he was on waivers for a reason.
JFJ - B- : Proably led the league in Hits per game before getting hurt AGAIN
Stone - B- : Tough luck injuries for a guy who finally got his chance in the NHL. Not sure if he is skilled enough to be a NHL regular, has the heart though.
