Ho hum, just another week of Tomas Plekanec putting up 2 points a game. I guess he's good or something. Plekanec is 3rd in the Czech league in scoring, although Jaromir Jagr passed him this week so he's now only second in Kladno.

Hey guys, I'm going to let you in on a little secret, Lars Eller is awesome. After a season where Eller missed training camp and couldn't bulk up in the summer due to a shoulder injury and subsequent surgery, Eller went at it like crazy this summer and seems to be in the best shape of his life. This has shown up in a big way with his start in the notoriously low scoring Finnish SM Liiga. He's outpacing the Bruins' Rich Peverley by a wide margin, and Peverley is an established NHL second liner.

Diaz just keeps lighting it up in Switzerland. I wasn't too enthused with him overall last season as he was kind of forced to play above his weight, but he's really making a case for himself as an NHL caliber defenseman.

After a slow start without a point in two games, Desharnais is now riding a 4 game point streak. Considering the level of play, I think there's a lot more Desharnais can show here. He's starting to heat up, but we're going to see a lot more points soon.

Galchenyuk failed to record a point in just two games in November. He recorded a whopping 8 goals and 15 assists for 23 points in 11 November games. He's tied for 4th in league scoring with Mark Scheifele and Boone Jenner, who are both older than him and have been receiving rave reviews as potential Team Canada stars in the upcoming World Junior Championships. Both players have also played more games than Goalchenyuk. Galchenyuk should be playing a starring role for Team USA this December, unless an NHL season begins and the Habs decide he's good to go. Over an 82 game season, NHL equivalency would predict a 42 point season for Galchenyuk at this pace. Interestingly, he's on a similar pace to what Tyler Seguin produced as a 17 year old. I have an extremely high opinion of Seguin as a hockey player, so this is very good in my opinion.

Vail snapped a 4 game pointless streak with a goal and an assist in Thursday's game against the Barrie Colts, keeping him near a point per game pace. He's not at the lofty heights he achieved offensively to start the season, but it's important to remember that Vail was drafted as a defense first hockey player. The point production is a bonus.

Consistency is not a word to be associated with Archambault, but I guess he's still floating around a point per game, which is good. I'm still expecting some more impressive stats from him as a 19 year old, and the QMJHL tracking shot statistics doesn't help his case.
