  • Alex Killorn – Killer; honestly, Killorn made the list by virtue of who’s not on it, that being Jonathan Drouin; with Yzerman trading Drouin to Montreal, it opened up another spot, and Killorn would have been next in line; Killer’s play in the 2016-17 season did not match the sweet and overly generous contract he received; despite being a force in the playoffs, he needs to produce more in the regular season, so as to help the team actually make the playoffs.
