    In a goals only carry over league who would be the better player to take?

    Brule
    Kopitar
    Bourret
    Ryan
    Pouliot
    Skille
    Hanzal

    Any sleepers I missed?

    No I didn't forget Crosby! no chance of getting him.

    Brule and it isn't really close. Most of the others are primarily playmakers or have a good combination of the two. Kopitar.

    Brule for sure. Ryan has a chance at being a good goalscorer but Brule's strength is in his shot/goalscoring ability.

    I you mean the Pouliot who played on Crosby's line with Rimouski and was drafted two years ago by Edmonton 22nd overall, I only saw him play one game. But he seemed like he was always trying to go at warp speed and his eyes-hands weren't good enough to keep up. Players (warning: cliche incoming) that don't stay within themselves tend not to score in the NHL.

    I think he is talking about Benoit Pouliot, a 2005 eligible.

    I would say Brule and Kopitar are the best of the bunch. Kopitar scored at about a goal per game in the Swedish junior league and he also lit it up at the WJC (Div I Group B) where he scored 10 goals in 5 games for Slovenia. Kopitar is a threat to score every time he is on the ice and he loves to shoot.

    One guy that should be on your list is Bergfors. 18 goals in 21 games in Sweden's junior league and 6 goals in 7 games at the U-18. Bergfors loves to shoot, sometimes even when the pass is the better play.

    It isn't really close? I don't know about that. Guys like Pouliot, Kopitar, Ryan, or Skille have just as much of a chance as being a prominent goalscorer at the NHL level as Brule does.

    As far a s Skille goes. He and Kessel did not get along and did not play together. If Skille had played with Mueller, Kessel or Stoa he may get more recoginition as a scorer. He gets Earl next year to show off his skills with. One can only hope he does not pick up the dive.

    1/ Ryan
    2/ Brule


    I'll be the first to pick Ryan over Brule, and I also don't think it will be very close.

    I may not have a chance at Brule either and saw Ryan live. He really stood out. I like what I have read about Skille.

    THANKS :handclap:

    Earl gets dogged all game from time to time he plays it up a little but he has to deal with alot of clutch and grab.
