    About right, although Vlasic may have had some competition.

    Is there an age limit on rookies? If not, then Freddy Norrena from the Jackets should have a shot (over 20 wins) at goalie

    Vlasic is a lock on the rookie team, Wonder if Carle will make it

    How about Peter Budaj? I think he is still a rookie.

    Malkin-Stastny-Kopitar

    Vlasic-Carle

    Budaj

    no, he isn't :D

    and the age limit is 26, so no Norrena and Backstrom

    Smith has 21 games so far, besides him, only Halak (11), Toivonen (16), Brust (11) and Cash (11) have played more than 10

    right now i think it's pretty clear for Smith, clearly the best stats of all

    so i agree with the topic starter and his selection

    Defense seems to be the only area with any competition this year. Big 3 at forward and Smith the only rookie with a shot in goal. I'd say Vlasic and Carle/Smid. on D

    What about Jordan Staal? I think he deserves a little more respect than alot of people give him, 29 goals and a + player. If Rick Nash was a ROY candidate, Jordan Staal should definately have some consideration.

    Good point. Put him in goal.
     
  14. Welp he's probably better defensively than Matt Carle :sarcasm:

    No Hannu Toivonen love? :sarcasm:

    Anyways, I think the original post pretty much nailed it. Staal is a really good player and all but there's no room here and you can't put him in over Malkin, Stastny, or Kopitar. =/

    Halak should be playing the next 6 habs games...

    If so, he would may be get a chance over Smith.

    not a bad crop of players, but I have to agree with some of the above, and say Staal belongs in there.

    f-Malkin
    f-Stastny
    f-Staal
    d-Carle
    d-Whitney- I am not sure if he is still eligible, I dont remember off hand how many games he played last season, but if so, he definitely needs to be there.
    g- ummmm, who cares, there hasn't been anyone in this category all year. Down year for rook goalies.

    If Backstrom is a rookie, I want him, but otherwise this team will do nicely.

    For some strange reason, I thought he didn't play much last season. Oh well, atleast he didn't fall into the sophmore jink. :handclap:

    Thanks for the info.

    There is no possible way that Staal belongs on the list over Kopitar. This year, Kopitar has been a major impact player on the Kings, who've had little else to smile about, all things considered. Stastny too has played a huge role in the Avs' success.

    It's tough to leave such a great prospect like Staal off the list, but this year's simply had an amazing crop of rookie forwards.
