    I like Jesper Fast.

    And he's actually good at it too. He's not a player that hits for the sake of hitting and anchors his team.

    Nate Thompson for sure. Really gonna miss him this year, and I have no idea why the Ducks didn't bring him back.

    NO not Killorn. Killorn was a dumpster fire last season.

    None, really. My last favourite one was Jacques Lemaire, I guess. I guess Forsberg too. I never like guys that can't skate or produce and are just there to "grind". Those are dime a dozen, and yes, I understand roster limitations and salary space. Still, you need to bring "something" other than dreaded "character".

    ....uh there was no ill will in that comment. Ottawa just signed him so it's good to know that Thompson can still grind with the best of them.
