    both have lived in the Shadows of the Hype created by Ovechkin and Malkin but who is the better prospect?

    I believe Gilbert Brule has been living in Crosby's shadow,no?

    Well, since the Rangers didn't draft Malkin, while they still have a VERY good shot at Brule, I'm going to say Brule. :D

    "With the second pick in the 2005 entry draft the New York Islanders are proud to select Gilbert Brule!" :p: ;)


    I prefer Malkin right now, but I will look a bit more closely Brule this coming season.

    C'mon, you know you're guaranteed to get the eighth spot in eastern Conference and bow out five games later. :D

    Brule.

    He'll be in Crosby's shadow the entire draft year, obviously, but he isn't as far behind as people think. He's the total package.

    Pretty much every aspect of his game right now is equal to or better than Malkin's. And that's saying something. Brule is special.


    Almost the whole first round in this draft are special players. You have guys like Jack Johnson who might drop to 10 when they'd go #2/3 in any other draft.

    He'll fit right in with Ovechkin, Fehr, and Semin in DC but I doubt we'll be just as lucky as we were in getting the chance to draft Ovechkin then we would with Brule

    I have not seen much of Malkin, but take this for what it's worth:

    Brule is the best 16/17 year old prospect I've ever seen play in the WHL.

    Maybe you didn't see them play, but Patrick Marleau, Mike Modano, Jason Bouwmeester, and Joe Sakic were all better 16 year olds than Brule. Still, thats pretty good company!

    BRULE for me I like Malkin but form what I've seen in the WHL Brule has all the tools to be a good NHLer.

    Sakic didn't play in the WHL as a 16 yr old. He was 17 in his first WHL season in 86-87.

    Brule at this point in his career doesn't even compare to Malkin at this time. Malkin blew up later in the season, flew right up the boards. At this time last season, he was not the prospect Brule is now.

    Brule is nowhere near as good as Malkin is now, but that ain't a fair comparison.

    Malkin was taken 2nd in what is considered a "weak" draft year. Brule will probably go 1st or 2nd in what is being touted as one of the strongest draft years in a while.
    Brule over Malkin on sheer heart and desire.

    Er he performed open heart surgery on him right after a passionate leer into his nebulous eyes. Northern joke, no punchline, sorry.

    I also believe Brule will be better than Crosby!

    yeah right....not even close. Brule will be a star but better than Crosby, not a chance.
