    I dont know much about Skille, so i didnt include him. Zherdev has huge offensive upsides whereas as someone like Ladd will be just a solid allround player.

  7. wow, Andrew Ladd is last on all the list? I know hes not ripping it up, but 4 goals in 7 NHL games is not bad vs guys like Mike Richards who will alwasy be a role player, and Latendresse drafted 40thoverall vs Ladd who was drafted 4th overall, rather quite shocking. My guess is you guys dont even know Ladd has played in the NHL this season.

    Nope. Well aware. We're talking offensive upside here, not right now.

    Or because it's a pretty competitive list in terms of future offensive potential. Not exactly like people are putting Ladd last on a list full of scrubs. To call Richards a role player is cutting him pretty short if you ask me. He's already becoming an incredibly important part of the Flyers in his rookie season. People keep underrating his offensive potential and he keeps producing (see his rookie totals this year, although he had slowed down a bit, but hes still played very well).

    I'd have Ladd last on this list as well. But that's not saying Ladd is a bad player, or even the worst prospect on this list. It simply asked about who had the highest offensive potential, and I think you'll be looking long and hard for more then a handful of people here that would say Ladd isn't near the bottom of this particular list.

    And I would had that many of these players play a different style of hockey.

    Mikko Koivu - Will be a two way center who will contibute offensively
    Jeff Carter - More of a goal score IMO...will set up plays
    Gilbert Brule - Flashy slicky guys who will throw his body around
    Nikolai Zherdev - He will score many highlights goals and he'll be fun to watch
    Jack Skille - Really don't know him much...I heard he could be a sniper
    Mike Richards - Will play in any situation, but IMO, will never be on the top of the league
    Guillaume Latendresse - Will crash the net and hit everything...many garbage goal for him...
    Andrew Ladd - See Latendresse

    So bottom line, it's hard to put guys like Latendresse and Ladd on the same level as Zherdev and Carter. They will al contribute to their team and they might all score over 60 points a year but each will be different.

    IMO:

    Carter
    Zherdev
    Brule
    Latendresse
    Richards
    Koivu
    Ladd

    ***don't know what to do with Skille

    Latendresse doens't score alot of garbage goals...he has super slick hands with teh puck and opens space and ice up for himself, he has a good shot and is now learning how to use it...the guy is very underrated here for offense IMO.

    Richards is going to be a helluva lot more than a role player. He's already the Flyers 2nd best playmaker among forwards.

    Nikolai Zherdev- top scorer defensive liability
    Jeff Carter- goal scorer
    Gilbert Brule- pp catylyst
    Mikko Koivu- 2 way player
    Mike Richards- never in the spotlight but always deserving (i wish my canucks took him with pick 23 instead of kesler)
    Guillaume Latendresse- so raw but could be the next bertuzzi
    Jack Skille-
    Andrew Ladd- has always benefitted from excellent linemates and might end up being a bust at pick # 4

    Andrew Ladd
    Mike Richards
    Mikko Koivu

    I really don't know Skille enough, so I put him where it would make most sense to be, according from what I read about him. I am REALLY not sold on Ladd.

    Jeff Carter
    Mike Richards
    Guillaume Latendresse
    Gilbert Brule
    Mikko Koivu
    Nik Zherdev
    Jack Skille
    Andrew Ladd

    This is, in order, whom I would take in "my" team. Gilbert Brule could move up. And Jack Skille had something of a hockey dad, isn't it?

    I'd like to see him being a blend of Luc Robitaille, Mike Knuble and Bertuzzi's...
