    Impact this year? Spezza for sure, then it's open between Crosby and Vanek, although I think Vanek is the better player I have a feeling Crosby will outscore him due to playing with great players like Mario, Palffy, Recchi, and so on.

    Future? who knows, but if I must predict then Vanek will be a top line goal scorer like Hossa, Spezza will be a great top line playmaker like Jason Allison, and Crosby will be a heck of a player, I'd say he'll be a poor man's Forsberg.

    Spezza is one step ahead right now of Vanek who in turn is one step ahead of Crosby at the moment.

    So this year its most likely Spezza, Vanek, Crosby.
     
  9. Consider the talent around Crosby though, he may not have to deal with the same amount of attention from defenses as Vanek will with Buffalo.

    Speaking of Buffalo, I want to go back to the Anchor Bar and have some wings...

    Spezza has scored 20+ goals and 50 points in the NHL already.

    I don't think Spezza should be lumped in with these two, Spezza is already a bonified NHL player. The other two still must prove they are.

    Crosby has the potential to be a special player.

    At this point:

    Spezza
    Crosby
    Vanek

    In their career:

    Toss up between Crosby and Spezza (do you guys remember the hype a la Crosby). Spezza will be a great player in the league for many years to come, but if Crosby lives true to the hype, then I will go with Crosby to have a better career.

    I really haven't seen much of Vanek, so it is an uneducated guess for me to put him behind the two players that I have seen a lot of.

    Jason Spezza is count it 7 months older then Thomas Vanek. I think this Vanek hype is way out of control. Yes he is very good, no question about it. But Spezza is sooooo much more proven. He oozes talent, people are going to be surprised at how much he scores this year.

    You know, I feel bad for Crosby.

    Anything he does this season will simply be chalked up as "because of his team"...

    I want to see one featuring everyone versus everyone else.

    Or how about <DJ Voice> "Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! My prospect vs. your prospect in a giant MUD PIT.... You pay for the whole seat but only need the edge!"</DJ Voice>

    ...,of clicking to see the thread....reading it....then posting a comment that adds nothing?

    My $0.02 (probably overpriced)

    All 3 are bonafide NHLers. I know that to some people if my grandmother had one shift for Aneheim and broke all her bones she wold rank ahead of both Sid and Thomas because she had at least done "something" at that level. These people really should be ignored.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Spezza was top 10 in scoring this year.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Sid was anywhere from top 50 to top 5 in scoring this year.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Vanek was top 20 in goal scoring this year.

    It would surprise me if "Grannie" won the Art Ross and I'd be totally shocked if she won the Rocket Richard (bad arthritis in the left wrist)

    As I warned "overpriced" at $0.02, or about average for a comparison thread.
