Saad and Shaw are the next group of young players that you'll be hearing a lot more of. These two not only compliment Toews, Kane and Hossa well, but they're both starting to make names for themselves. Carcillo will be back soon. Coach Q is so impressed with Saad that he's not moving Carcillo back to the first line. Speaks volumes about the team's confidence in Brandon.
The Sharks and Blues drop off has been pretty amazing. World beaters in the first two weeks and really struggling now. The Hawks are also showing they are legit. I'm particularly impressed with Corey Crawford. He could be taking the next step. Their young forwards are also rounding into form very quickly.
Is it bright where you are? Have the people changed?
