    In case you're not aware, In The Game has released 2004-2005 Prospects and Heroes hockey cards. Checklist

    There's also a group of cards called Aspiring. I found it kind of interesting and wondered what everyone's thoughts were...Do these pairings seem accurate? Why do you think each prospect was matched with the hero listed?? What are the similarities? Or what do you think the differences are if you feel they got it wrong?? Any comments?

    Aspiring
    1 Mario Lemieux/Sidney Crosby
    2 Mario Lemieux/Alexander Ovechkin
    3 Patrick Roy/Marc-André Fleury
    4 Patrick Roy/Kari Lehtonen
    5 Raymond Bourque/Dion Phaneuf
    6 Cam Neely/Alexander Ovechkin
    7 Mike Bossy/Mike Richards
    8 Frank Mahovlich/Patrick O'Sullivan
    9 Phil Esposito/Brad Boyes
    10 Grant Fuhr/Devan Dubnyk
    11 Bobby Clarke/Jeff Carter
    12 Jacques Plante/Julien Ellis-Plante
    13 Gilbert Perreault/Sidney Crosby
    14 Stan Mikita/Corey Perry
    15 Jean Béliveau/Corey Locke
    16 Gerry Cheevers/David LeNeveu

    The Bossy/Richards comparison kind of caught me off-guard, I didn't know Richards was supposed to be a pure sniper...and Jeff Carter compared to Clarke too, I didn't think Carter was dirty or nasty at all, let alone as nasty or dirty as Clarke was.

    I suspect the Carter/Clarke comparison is more about team lineage than anything.

    It's merely being cute. Jacques Plante and Julien Plante (well they're both goalies, their names start with J, and they have the same last names! Ha! How clever!)
    It holds no water
