#hot topic Who is the player who needs to step up the most on your favorite team this upcoming season?
After what he said last week, Andrei Kostitsyn. But a few players coming back from injury too... Gorges, Markov, also, I think Cammalleri.
Pavelski needs to play like a top line player, couture needs to avoid a sophomore slump. Burns also needs to prove he was worth his pricetag
JVR. We all know Giroux will take his game to the next level, now it's up to JVR to become more consistent.
Kyle Okposo. The other guys had improved seasons but Kyle had a late start after coming back from injury. He needs to have around a 60-point year to help the team make their way into the playtoffs.
Dion Phaneuf is going to need to take a step forward and show he's capable of playing at the level he exhibited in the second half of the season.
Hornqvist needs to get back to the 30 goal plateau or at least close to prove he wasn't a fluke.
Also Rinne, has to prove last year wasn't just a lucky year and play the same way again.
