    On a side note, almost half of these guys are not prospects anymore. You need to define this a little better because you have guys with extreme potential but not alot of time spent in the nhl(Fleury, Lehtonen, Lupul) and guys who are producing great already in the NHL(Stall, Malone, Pitkanen).

    I tried to base my picks with potential and what they have done in the NHL already(if eligible). I did this because we all know talent does not always equate into the NHL.

    Some of the players are so close in talent that I think it all comes down to personal preference and fan bias

    Fleury
    Lehtonen
    Pitkanen
    Ruutu
    Staal
    Semin
    Horton
    Zherdev
    Brown
    Ryder
    Lupul
    Bergeron
    Malone
    Hamhuis
    Tyutin
    Hudler
    Krajicek
    Sjostrom
    Koltsov

    I'm not basing my list on what the guys did this year b/c then I would have it in a completely different order...its more on the impact they could have in the NHL

    Wow. How do you leave Fleury out of the Top 5? I would think he would be a consensus either #1 or #2.

    In case you haven't noticed but Lupul has played 74 games this season, netting 33 points.

    I knew Lupul had played some, but not practically the whole season. My bad I guess. I have like Lupul since he was drafted so its good to know he now is in the NHL full-time.

    Considering these guys a really at different point in there carrer and are playing different positions, I decided to rankthem considering their top performance they will reach IMO as the major point. Very hard to do but if I had to draft, I'll would do it this way...

    lehtonen
    Pitkanen
    ruutu
    fleury
    horton
    Zherdev
    staal
    Hamhuis
    semin
    lupul
    bergeron
    Tyutin
    ryder
    Krajicek
    brown (dustin)
    malone
    Sjostrom
    hudler
    koltsov (Konstantin)

    In fact some of these have great potential but I have no love for them...
    Ex... Hudler Koltsov Sjostrom... Staal and Fleury should also be higher in most poeple list

    Yeah, but I was just asking Blackjack specifically. He said he had upside but implied that he didn't like Koltsov for personal reasons.

    Two of your choices stand out to me:

    Semin ahead of Ruutu? I'd say at this juncture its possible he'll end up better than Ruutu, because he has as much skill, but he doesnt seem to have the fire of Ruutu. Plus Ruutu is such a demon on the ice.

    Malone ahead of Lupul? Isn't Lupul like 4 years younger than Malone? From all accounts it seems like Lupul has the upside of an elite 1st line scorer, while Malone seems like he will be a solid hard working 2nd line scorer. I have to say i'm thrilled to have a young american come out of no-where to suceed like he has.


    Heres how i'd rank em. Its not solely on potential, or guys like Semin would be ahead of Staal, but I give more weight to potential cause thats what the author of this thread asked.

    Fleury
    Zherdev
    Lehtonen
    Pitkanen
    Ruutu
    Staal
    Horton
    Semin
    Hamhuis
    Lupul
    Ryder
    Bergeron
    Krajicek
    Sjostrom
    Malone
    Tyutin
    Hudler
    Brown
    Koltsov

    I think theres a dropoff between Horton and Semin though. They all seem to be very promising young players though. If potential and accomplishments were factored in this list would be turned on its head though.



    From what i've seen, he isnt as creative or as quick with his hands as most of the other guys on this thread. He'd kick all their asses in a foot race though! He wouldnt beat this guy though. Lookit them feet go! :gman:

    Whenever I watch that guy dance, I hear that song "The Scatman"

    That's not what I'm asking. Blackjack said Koltsov had "great potential" but then said he had "no love for him" and I'm just wondering why.

    I fully understand why people are ranking him at the bottom of the list.
