    Its a long ways away, but Angelo Esposito as we know is putting up numbers in the QMJHL that are reminiscent of Crosby at 16. he'll be 20 by 2010 turning 21 that year, maybe he'll be a bona fide NHL star by then? All I know is that we'll need some scoring punch by then. Esposito isnt quite where Crosby is but he'll easily put up 110-115 points in his rookie year in the QMJHL this year. Crosby had 135. Is it too hard to believe he'll be in Vancouver in '10?

    Well, if Crosby was left off this year, then it stands to reason that a guy who most feel has less upside won't be on there in 2010...

    Besides, Canada has a ton of young forwards ready to step in. If Esposito played defence, it might be a different story...

    No, I don't see Phil Esposito playing for Team Canada in 2010. He's too old.

    no way. Esposito is overrated. Luckily for him, he gets to play with radulov
