    Who will score more points this year: Jeff Carter or Thomas Vanek?
    I'm leaning towards Carter right now as he'll be on the top line in Philly w/ Forsberg and Gagne, but Vanek has 1 full year of AHL experience... even though Carter led the playoff scoring.. tough call, what do you think?

    Will anyone other than Crosby or Ovechkin score more points than these 2?

    Vanek should outscore Carter, I'd guess.

    Carter is slated to be on a line with Forsberg and Gagne. If that happens he'll easily outscore Thomas.

    Coulnd't Vanek end up on the Top line, as well? They kinda have a hole there without Satan, and he apparantly has chemistry with Briere.

    But yeah, Foppa and Gagne are better players, so should make Carter better.

    Well if Carter is playing with Gagne and Forsberg I'd expect him to score more points than Vanek. The crop of rookies this season will be very fun to watch, I can't wait.

    ad say carter will get more points. vanek more goals.

    and to answer your second question....i think these guys are going to be given every opportunity, and if everything goes rigth they could very well outscore those two:

    alex perezhogin
    brandon bochenski
    alexander steen
    zach parise
    marek svatos


    other than that...i really dont think there will be too many people who challenge carter and vanek in scoring...of course there is gonna be some surprises...

    Carter will and it won't even be close. Vanek won't get to play with the best player in the world.

    Who's to say Carter will all season? With Forsberg's injury history, Carter's lucky if he gets to play 50 games this season with Forsberg, let alone 50 games on his line. To say Carter will easily outscore Vanek is absurd. Vanek is penciled in to replace Satan as our premier scoring forward. His first preseason game, he had 2 goals, one in the third period and the other in overtime (plus another mind-blowing shootout goal after the game). He and Daniel Briere (the Sabres #1 center) have been experiencing incredible chemistry so it's likely Vanek will be on the Sabres top line the majority of the year. Vanek and Carter could easily both have the same amount of points this year and neither should experience problems producing. However, to say Carter will outscore Vanek and it won't even be close sounds to me like you're just another Flyer fan thinking Carter is the 2nd coming of Mats Sundin or something.
