  3. Carter, Bergeron, Vanek.

    Carter: First line centre, plays great offensively AND defensively. Has the leaderships skills as well. PP time and PK time, will have a great career in Philadelphia.

    Bergeron: Bergeron does not do anything excellent, but will do everything great. Most players have a strength or weakness. Bergeron is one of those players who will have neither: he'll do everything very good.

    Vanek: A goal scorer that everyone will love.

    Potential wise?

    Blue Chipper?
    1. Bergeron
    2. Carter
    3. Vanek

    Vanek's playing style looks much like Jaromir Jagr. Then again, the same could be said about Maxim Afinogenov and he's not much of a hot commodity. It's all about how he devolops. Vanek is a huge boom or bust player. There's such a huge range in his potential. I hope he reaches his potential. A gamebreaking skill like Vanek in an American market can only be good for the game.

    Hey, there is still a bridge between Buffalo and Canada. If Canada ever invades, just be glad that you in Table, AZ are safe because all those Canadians will be busy eating Chicken Wings here in Buffalo, eh.
    :D

    If Mexico ever invades, I'll fly up there to Buffalo and buy you a dozen.

    In terms of potential, Vanek could easily turn out better than Carter and Bergeron. I'd rather have Carter on my team than any other though. Then Bergeron, because there more of a sure thing. Vanek could easily be a bust, not saying that he will but it could definitely happen, I think there's less a chance of Carter being a bust and definitely Bergeron.

    Vanek is a year and a half older than Bergeron and almost a year older than Carter. That could make a difference.

    Dominik Hasek arrived in the NHL way later than Jamie Storr, doesn't give Storr an edge at all in the skill department. Jeff O'Neill was at one point considered a bust but then broke out with the Hurricanes later than expected. Glen Murray was a second teir player early in his career an is now an elite sniper. Age is over-rated in these boards. I've seen 16 year old kicking ass in a hockey game full of 30 year olds.

    I think Carter has far and away the best potential even with Vanek there. Carters skill package must leave scouts in awe. Carter has blazing speed, great size, excellent hand eye coordination along with an NHL shot. Some would think he must be soft in order for Philly to grab him but that isn't that case, Carter is very physical and ended up taking his teamate out in training camp.

    With Carter's impressive showing at WJC's hard not to pick him at #1... However Bergeron is REALLY close.. he's a really unqiue player because he's so young yet already so mature, does everything well, is strong enough to play vs men, and can score goals aswell as play on the pk.

    What are you trying to say? The Flyers only draft soft players or he fell to the Flyers pick b/c the perception at the draft was he was soft?

    Watching Vanek play around 15 times or so this year, he won't be a bust. He'll score a lot of goals in the NHL.
