Favorite Sabres since the trade deadline / playoff push / new ownership

Is it just me, or have certain Sabres stepped up their game since the deadline / playoff push / new ownership? Seems that with all 3 of these happenings in play, some players really REALLY up-ed their game. I would love to hear other peoples comments on who their "favorites" have been in the past month or so, or which 5 have been the most instrumental to the success of the past few weeks. Here are mine:

1) Ryan Miller. Of course, he has to be up here.

2) Mark Mancari. I've always liked this guy, but as of late he has been one of the strongest guys on the ice.

3) Brad Boyes. I have already announced in my house that he is "my new favorite Sabre".

4) Tyler Enis. Can you say "Rookie of the Year"?

5) Nathan Gerbe. Yes, another youngster. And another guy I have liked for a while like Mancari. Looks like our farm system is coming through once again!

Honorable Mentions:

-Rob Niedermayer & Mike Grier: Slow, old, and at the tail end of their careers. Not a great year, but playing GREAT hockey the past few weeks.

-Andrej Sekera. I admittedly think Sekera is overrated but what can I say, he's playing great as of late (bout time).

-Jhonas Enroth. Personally, I love this guy. He should step up to the backup role next year.
