Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by HFNHL Canadiens, Jun 6, 2005.
Anze Kopitar or Andrej Meszaros and Scott Hartnell
Rather an eclectic mix of players no?
Meszaros and Hartnell. Not knowing anything very much about Kopitar except for the standard hearsay, I still know this: Hartnell is a hard-nosed NHL regular. Meszaros looks like a good bet to be a top-4 NHL defenseman. Kopitar, however much raw talent he has (and it sounds like he has a lot) still has much more risk, plus he's just one player carrying that risk burden by himself. At this early prospect stage, I'd take Hartnell and Meszaros. Five years from now I might regret it, of course.
As much as I love Kopitar I think I'd take Hartnell who's a really solid young NHL'er and Meszaros who's got the potential to be a really good defenseman.
Very, Very easy choice on my part.
Definitely Hartnell and Meszaros. Hartnell is a future captain, 25 goal type of player, let alone already a young NHL'er, whos still improving. Meszaros comes off a tremendous season in the WHL and if he can put together another solid season, he might be close to being a top 30 prospect in the NHL.
Meszaros and Hartnell
But since you're getting BOTH Scott and Mes, I'd take them..
