As if the Red Wings weren't loaded enough, young energy players Darren Helm and Tomas Kopecky have just begun to come into their own.... The glue guy on Chicago is forward Patrick Sharp, who scores (36 goals last season), kills penalties and plays responsible defense.... Columbus forward Fredrik Modin, coming off an injury-wrecked season (six goals in 23 games), still has one of the heaviest shots in hockey.... Nashville has underrated young defenders, led by Shea Weber, the Dion Phaneuf of the south.... With Erik Johnson out, Eric Brewer must carry St. Louis's back line.
