Breakout players

Who are yours?

So far for me, Duchene looked awesome in Canada's first game. He kid continues to get better every single game.

I'm really, really hoping Kulemin does something to get recognized, get some more minutes, and gets thrown onto a better line. Guess I can't say he's on a bad line, though.

MZA definitely.

Peter Regin is also showing his skills.

I think that Josi's breakout will come on NA sized ice. He played well in the WJC on it, but it needs to be seen on a consistent level over at least one pro season in NA before you can really say that. He is only 19/20 years old. He has become a very good player, but hasn't broken out yet.

The heck you talk about? Josi score a goal against Latvia and he is already having his break out year in the swiss league at least.

Duchene is going to win rookie of the year. I'd say he's already broken out, no?

Im thinking guys like Russell or Bourque, maybe rookies and prospects like Eberle or Pajaarvi-Svensson, Regin, guys like that.

Just my opinion of what breakout means I guess.

Emelin was VERY impressive during the KHL playoffs. We'll see what he does in this tournament.

That's highly debatable to say the least. Look to Myers.

I don't think they will be at the same level as some other who have been mentioned here, but on the German team I'd go with Holzer, Endras and Krueger, maybe Mueller.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson. The guy is a stud. I haven't watched him played alot, but everytime i see him play, im getting more convinced that he's going to be the premier swedish defender for the coming 15 years.

Well Bourque already has broken out as well....he nearly scored 30 goals this year...so according to your definition he doesn't belong either.

When I mention Duchene I mean like a Stamkos breakout from last WC.

Easily OEL for Sweden. That pick must be looking pretty darn good for Phoenix right now. He does it all.
