Jimmy Bonneau, Maxim Lapierre, Francis Lemieux, Cory Urquhart, Duncan Milroy, Jeff Paul, James Stanford, Jaroslav Halak
Halak is the biggest surprise, and the degree of surprise is slight. I thought he would compete with Yann Danis for the temporary backup job while Cristobal Huet recovers from his injury. It's promising that Carey Price is proving himself worthy of his draft position.
Milroy is a bit of a disappointment - he's been to a few camps, and to be among the first cuts at his age has to sting. Oh well, he may be a late bloomer.
From what I've read, Perezhogin, Higgins, Hainsey and Price have been impressive. Begin, Dagenais and Bouillon have been have been performing well, making it very hard for Julien to demote them.
