Who's your biggest surprises, for better for worse, player-wise, team-wise etc.

Mine:

Erik Karlsson

Only 2 goals this year. Maybe having a bit of a reduced workload with Burns has contributed to that but I thought that Sharks PP would mean he'd be scoring a lot more.

Timo Meier

PPG so far and leading the Sharks in scoring

Elias Lindholm

PPG player and is really clicking on the top line with Monahan and Gaudreau

Flyers

Well the goalie graveyard has taken another soul. And that good young defense has really been a let down. I thought they would be a lot better.

Islanders

Trotz might win the Jack Adams if he gets them into the playoffs. Lose Tavares, and a pretty underwhelming sophomore year so far from Barzal, but they are 3rd in the Metro which is something to be happy about.
