*Still here: Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Franzen, Filppula, Hudler, Helm, Holmstrom, Cleary
...I think I'd take Bert over '08 Sammy. I think I'd take Miller over '08 Maltby. I think I'd take Nyquist over '08 Drake (though, that's hard to say, because they're so different). I think I'd say Abby and '08 Draper are about a push.
(remember that Kopecky missed all of the '08 playoffs)
*Still here: Lidstrom, Kronwall, Stuart
...Ian White is no '08 Rafalski, and that's big, but Ericsson and Quincey are probably both at least slight upgrades over Lilja and Lebda.
...I don't think it would be a stretch to say that Jimmy has been at least as good as '08 Ozzie thus far this season (and who cares about backups).
