Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by Blades 0f Steel, Jul 23, 2005.
Who do you think will be ready to step into the NHL as an 18 year old?
None of them really...Brule needs to get bigger and stronger, Ryan needs to improve his skating...Pouliot is still developing his overall game, and Kopitar played in the Tier 2 leagues in Sweden and will need to adjust to tougher compition first.
If I was picking though I would say Ryan.
Right now I would say Kopitar...From the highlights I've seen of him and seeing him the world championships he looks like he could suit up next year.
