    Yeah, but how about Kravstov?

    Relax. He's just a kid having fun. I don't see how this any different than taking a picture with the Naked Cowboy. Which is something tourists do all the time in NY.

    Because they were both KHL rookies...? They're both born in 1999. Better question is why are you talking about what Tolvanen did last year in a different league. Sounds like a desperate excuse to justify a ridiculous decision.

    Thats why I asked if playoffs is considered in the trophy. Where some say it dont. Isnt the trophy for the best rookie? Not best rookie by age?

    Toolvanen was by far the better player in the KHL regular season and you say Kravstov produced like a top 6 winger while Tolvanen did not. The difference in PPG was marginal with Kravstov getting 0,69 PPG and Tolvanen 0,64.

    Because Tolvanen is 8 months older.

    No way the Leafs get this lucky 2 drafts in a row but I'm really hoping he falls to 25.

    8 months is not 1 year. What's your max range in age difference that allows comparing?

    I didn’t originally realize people were comparing the two over the rookie of the year, I just generally said that Tolvanen was older. Point being, Kravtsov is still in D year and has recently shown another gear to his game.

    Okay, sorry I misunderstood too. I'm a fan of Kravtsov and hope the Wings pick him up with the Vegas pick if he's still on the board. Going by talent alone, he should be gone by then.

    Anyway, the age thing is an interesting discussion on its own. If the draft was by birth year, there could be more late birthday steals. Kravtsov eligible last summer? Maybe not in the 1st round discussion although he did have a good year.

    Why not? If you aren't the best in the world, you're a development league, a sad truth about any sport.

    Because in order to be a developmental league, one of the main goals of the league needs to be developing players for something better. I seriously doubt feeding the NHL is high on any KHL exec's list...

    Wahlstrom easily.

    With that said, I would be thrilled if Kravtsov falls to the Leafs at 25.

    I don't see Wahlstrom falling out of the top 10-12.

    Kravtsov plays a more complete game, but because Whalstrom's shot is so damn elite, I still give him the edge. That guy can be a 40 goal scorer in the league.

    There are so many future 40 goal scorers every draft, and then they disappear somewhere.

    Wahlstrom, by nature that he isn't playing in Russia, will go ahead of Kravtsov.

    also the fact that wahlstrom is better might be one of the leading reasons for him likely going ahead of kravtsov

    Which ones in particular? How does Wahlstrom numbers translate from USNDTP to say Kravtsov that moved into a scoring line in a mens league?

    Nah, a true fact is Wahlstrom will stop playing hockey in two years.
