    Radulov better than Latendresse? Maybe in your dreams.

    First off....you are a habs hater so your opinion means nothing. Second....you are biased so that doesn't go well in your favor...Third, younger seems like the way to go with you.....like most of HF so once you add it up....your list sucks.

    Of course the Leafs fan rates the Habs prospects the lowest.

    I could care less about Latendresse but you're underating Perezhogin. This guy had a monster season in the RSL and is a shoe in to make the big team this year.

    As well I cant understand why you have Ryan up there at #1. He has a well balanced game but I don't think he'll be able to put up better numbers than half of these guys.

    Ishhhh, not easy to do :confused:

    I'll go with this:

    1-Rotislav Olesz
    2-Bobby Ryan
    3-Zach Parise
    4-Guillaume Latendresse(o.k, maybe it's because of the hype)
    5-Dustin Brown
    6-Alexander Perezhogin
    7-Patrick O'Sullivan
    8-Alexander Radulov
    9-Eric Fehr
    10-Wojtek Wolski

    Not that every of these player could eventually be rated at #1...

    I can't remember the last time I've seen a second overall selection get as little respect as Ryan has since the draft. If he's not at or near the top of this list then Anaheim made a huge mistake.

    I'd say because he wasn't the second best player in the draft. I don't know what Anaheim was thinking at the time....Latendresse is the same player...maybe a little faster.

    what a stupid response, are you trying to ruin leafs members reputation :dunno: sure both Lantendresse and Perezhogin last, good thing Steen wasn't there cause i guess he'd be last based on the Steen vs Perezhogin thread :yo: (atleast for those who see Perezhogin for more than a stick swing :help: )

    I'm not sure yet if they are the same player...In fact, right now, nobody really know what's the upside of Latendresse...IMO, he's a mystery...

    You guys are underestimating Perezhogin, if I had to pick any prospect from the Habs pool it would be my number 1 pick. He isn't overrared like the others ie: Kost.

    The only other players who were in the running for second overall were Johnson, Pouliot and Brule. That pushes him to fifth at the lowest (The Canadiens passed on Brule for Price but I'd be surprised if they passed up on Ryan in Price's favor). I'd really like to see a list of all the players you'd have taken ahead of him.

    The only people trying to compare Ryan and Latendresse are Canadiens fans and Q supporters.

    Is it so inconceivable that someone would have Latendresse and Perezhogin at the bottom of this list? These are all predicted to be very good players, and you could make a case for anyone

    I think you hab fans need to lighten up a bit. You act like it's some sort of cosmic conspiracy. It's not like we're talking about Crosby or Ovetchkin here. Every one of the guys listed has up and downsides to his game

    All the Habs fans are having a massive overreaction to it. I disagree with his placement of Perezhogin (although I agree with his placement of Latendresse) but it's a perfectly defensible position.

  24. No. Not even close.


    Ryan has a weakness is his game right now which will make it tough to bring him to the league (skating.) Plus, he's not as physical as he should be, and power forwards usually develop slowly. Latendresse is a better skater, but he's no Gartner. And that's the understatement of the century. Latendresse, he honestly can play 4th line in the NHL right now IMO, but I don't think he has 1st or 2nd line potential. He's solid with the puck, but nowhere close to Ryan's league. Ryan has amazing ice vision and hands, he's unselfish and just as effective offensively setting people up as his is scoring goals; in fact, maybe a MORE so. And he's imposible to knock off the puck; he scores those Jagr-style goals where he carries a defenseman on his back (in no way am I comparing Ryan to Jagr; that would be as funny as that Perry v.s. Crosby thread.)

    This year in Owen Sound, Ryan needs to work on his skating. He will take on a more physical role IMO (if he wants to make it in the NHL as a 19 year old, he HAS to), and try to improve his average defensive zone play (an area where Latendresse exceeds him....and the OHL isn't exactly the best place to learn defense, except if you play for Sudbury.)

    The ideal path for Ryan:

    05-06 - Owen Sound - Compete with Rob Schremp (I think he'll get the 10-games-and-down thing with Edmonton; Schremp's not nearly ready for the NHL, although he's one of the few Oilers that is dangerous in the PP and that may keep him around...I think his skating could take another step up, and he needs to play the wing in London, because that is where he'll be as a pro; he's not at the all-around level of my other hometown favorite, Dustin Brown) for the OHL scoring title, in the process getting more aggressive and physically growing a bit more. After the year, signs with Anaheim and plays playoff games with their AHL affiliate if they make it.

    06-07 - AHL - AHL is a better place to learn defense. Play at least half the season at the AHL level, improving his backcheck and hopefully making his skating about average, which is where it needs to be. Play either the other half of the year in the AHL if Anaheim is a great team that year, or if they blow, bring him in for the rest of the year, and send him down to the minors for the playoffs. Or maybe sign him, give him 20 games or so in the O.C., and send him to the AHL till the fall.

    07-08 - NHL - He better be there, and by this time he should be a Calder candidate.

    He has tremendous potential. However, I'll give you he's a higher risk than Latendresse. But there probably arent many teams that would rather have Guillame Latendresse over Bobby Ryan.

  25. It is the hype talking.

    Latendresse is not the player Brown is, nor is he in Parise's neighborhood.
