    Voloshenko isn't a given. Pouliot might challenge if he makes the team (Uhhhh...Pouliot - Demitra - Gaborik)...

    I think Voloshenko is more NHL ready than Pouliot.

    Voloshenko - 60 pts in 69gp in the AHL

    Pouliot - 65 pts in 51 gp in the OHL

    Numbers aside, I've heard Pouliot most likely will stay in Houston.

    However calder next year? Malkin, Radulov, Wolski, Kopitar...?

    True, then again Rutuu was a lock to win it in 2004, and Lindros was a lock to win it in 1993 so anything can happen.

    All three of those guys will be playing on the second line, at least to start the season. Malkin will probably get the about the same ice time as Sid, but I doubt Wolski will get more time than Sakic nor will Radulov see more time than Sullivan.

    It could turn out that a rookie comes in on a team that is weak at their position
    and puts up more points through virtue of ice time (and skill)

    So, in conclusion, yeah Malkin wins it.

    1. Malkin
    2. Brule
    3. Wolski
    4. O' Sullivan
    5. Radulov

    im not even sure radulov will even start out with the preds. He might be in the line-up in the 2nd half of the season. But i bet if he played a full season, everyone would be shocked at how good this kid is. But Poile has mentioned he wanted Radulov to start out in Milwaukee and not with Nashville.

    but other than that, i agree with your list.

    Malkin lit up the second best league in the world last year and looked amazing at both the Olympics and WC in Riga. He could put up a point per game or better. I have no doubt that eventually Bergfors will put up those kind of numbers, but not in his rookie year. I don't think his game is that complete yet. It would be a nice suprise though. Especially if we end up losing Elias.

    don't count Backstrom out if he plays for Washington this year, great offensive player playing with Ovechkin and feeding him.

    probably not a contender with the likes of malkin, but i think Pekka Rinne may surprise a few people if he's given the chance

    Whats the popular feeling towards Robert Schremps chances of competing for the hardware. A fellow employee cant say enough, and truly believes he can give Malkin a run for his money. I think he is way out to lunch with the oil for life blinders on, what say you cats?

    My darkhorse pick is Alexei Kaigorodov. He may turn a few heads come October.

    If Wolski is eligible he has a very good chance to win the Calder, at least getting a nomination.
    He's virtually a lock for Colorado's top six.

    I think Schremp has as good a chance as any prospect not named Evgeni Malkin. There's no given Schremp will be in Edmonton, he might spend time in Hamilton although I hope not.

    Did I mention that..
    The only person who can snag the Calder from underneath Malkin's nose is Toivunen. Contrary to anyone from Boston, I like the Bruins next year....they might even be good. I think a torrid season from Hannu is possible.
