    Which players out of these are sure fire hall of famers from what we have seen so far? If you can only pick 4, which ones do you pick?

    Sidney Crosby
    Alexander Ovechkin
    Dany Heatley
    Jason Spezza
    Dion Phaneuf
    Dustin Penner
    Jeff Carter
    Jay Bouwmeester
    Nathan Horton
    Roberto Luongo
    Rich Nash
    Henrik Zetterberg
    Rick Dipietro
    Ilya Kovalchuk
    Niklas Kronwall
    Eric Staal
    Marian Gaborik

    This has to be one of the best group of young players ever. Penner is a reach at this point but the kid has some great skill for a big man. More than four will make it out of this group but I want to know that top 4.

    You're kidding me, right? How many of these guys are over 25? Three or four? Come back in seven or eight years with this same list, and then we can enjoy an intelligent, thorough, sound debate. None of these guys are sure-fire HHOFers.

    Well duh??????
    Its just to see the opinion on these group of players. Which four are the ones to have the greatest careers in the opinions of hockeys future readers. For all we know AO will break his leg next week. That doesnt mean he doenst have hall of fame potential.

    I think it is too early to pick HOFers but I guess I'll just guess.

    Nash
    Spezza
    Crosby
    Ovechkin

    Total shots in the dark.

    Yes he does, but he doesn't belong anywhere near this list.



    I would say Crosby, Ovechkin, Luongo, and maybe Kovalchuk, Nash, or Staal.

    Thank you.

    One can assume greatness all s/he wants, but one would be mistaken.

    There is a ton of talent on that list. As of now, however, associating any with the term "sure-fire hall of famer" is absurd.

    I agree that its waaaaaay too early but speculation is quite fun.

    From your list I would say Crosby, Ovechkin, Kovalchuk, Staal. Phanuef is a heck of a player too.

    No offense, but guys like Penner, Dipietro don't belong on the list and Kronwall is already 25 or close to 25. He's got too much ground to make up considering that he's 3 years older than most of these other guys.

    Sure fire HOF'er?
    None of them. Kovalchuk is probably the cloest but I really don't have any difficulty thinking up scenarios in which any of them fail to become HOF'ers.

    It wouldn't be the first time or even the hundredth time in history that an amazingly talented young player failed to become an all time great.
