    Thrashers... Kovalchuk, Lehtonen, Valabik, Coburn...

    Only Kovalchuk and Lehtonen would be enough for ANY team to build their franchise around.

    Flyers - Carter, Richards, Pitkanen, Alexandre Picard, Eager

    If you went up to 25 you could also include Niittymaki, Gagne, Seidenberg, Umberger, Sharp


    Thrashers have more potential superstars with Kovalchuk and Lehtonen, but I think the Flyers have a more solid team, especially if you loosen that restriction by a few years.

    1) Atlanta (Kovalchuk, Lehtonen, Valabik, Coburn, etc..)
    2) Washington (Semin, Ovechkin, Eminger, Green, Schultz, Morrisone, etc....)
    3) Florida (Bouwmeester, Horton, Weiss, Stewart, Krajicek, Olesz etc....)
    Atlanta far and away, but Washington and Florida aren't too shabby either to say the least.

    If it was 25 the Flames would look much better than 22.

    22 and under:
    Phaneuf, Ramholt, Nystrom, Kobasew, Prust, Chuko

    25 and under:
    All the guys above plus Regehr, Leopold, Ference, Lombardi, Krahn.

    The defense is pretty solid. But still many teams with young talent to be taken ahead.

    If Pittsburgh had one or two good players/prospects more together with Malkin and MAF, they could be mentioned as well. Two great prospects aren't enough. But future franchise center backed up with possible franchise goalie is something good to start of.

    but I'd also like to throw in Nashville, with Suter, Hamhuis, Klein, and the rest of our future d-core (Sulzer, Kulyash, Stehlik & co)

    I really like what Nashville is doing. They don't have the Heatley's, but they do have solid solid young players. Probably the least recognized of the teams that have done a splendid job building a winner.

    I think it's between Washington, Florida and Atlanta. I'd probly take Atlanta by a close margin.

    atlanta also has heatley, but hes like 23, but still young enough to build a franchise around.

    Columbus not bad either, especially if they get Crosby

    I don't think it's that close a margin.

    If Horton can stay healthy and Weiss and JBo play as good as people act like they already do, then it would be.

    22 years and younger?

    That displaces Luongo and Heatley, so...

    Atlanta, Washington, Florida, Pittsburgh

    ^^ IMO, those 7 prospects can become huge players for the Rangers if they're used correctly. Not sure if some of them are prospects anymore.. atleast they're young!

    [didn't include my favorite player, Fedor Tyutin, since he played a season already.]
    ----
    I think the Atlanta Thrashers will defintely be one of the 'stronger' teams in a few years. Ilya Kovalchuk, Dany Heatley, Braydon Coburn, Boris Valabik, Kari Lehtonen, Grant Lewis, Petteri Nummenlin, Michael Vannelli, etc.
