    I'm going to keep an eye on AJ Thelan. I hope he performs well.
    He was The Wild's first choice at this year's draft.

    Yeah. Watch him closely - he's so fast, I bet you won't see him.

    lol, I love it when people post big expectations for players who are cut, like Thelen, Johnson, Bahensky, Sindel, and Kindl LOL. :joker: :lol

    BTW, to answer the question, I think Olesz, Carter, Ovechkin, Bergeron, Malkin, Zakharov, and O'Sullivan will really stand out.

    Carter, O'Sullivan and Schremp make up my top three. I'm expecting big things from Carter, he's looked awesome since he played with Philly last year in the playoffs.

    shea weber could be a big surprise to most people. he plays very mature and has everything to be the best defender, although he may not be the one who's most skilled.

    Tuuka Rask, Leonardo Genoni...a pair of young keepers will make an impact at least on draft position.

    If you feel like ****e and that you're being laughed at behind your back, well that's because Thelen did not make the team. Now that I've ruined the joke for everyone, well too bad really.
    And why is Jack Johnson on the US roster on hockeycanada.ca?

  17. Maybe hockeycanada should be in charge of the US roster.
    Johnson SHOULD be on the team

    I don't think that any player on any team will even come close to the Crosby-Bergeron duo.

    Now I do expect Bergeron to shine a little more than Crosby as he is better defensively, on faceoffs, and physically.

    So the best Bergeron
    followed by Crosby
    and Ovechkin.
