    Who are the best 19 year olds in the AHL this season. This is for players that are still able to play at the WJC this year.

    Here is the only ones that I know of and Bergeron is by far the best.
    Bergeron
    Horton
    Burns
    Khomutov
    Kastitsyn
    Suter
    Zakharov

    And Kostitsyn's barely getting any playing time... and he's on one of the worst offensive teams in the league.

    As for others...

    Ryan Suter
    Konstantin Zakharov

    Wouldn't be one of the worse offensive teams if he actually produced more offense.

    Ever thought about that?

    I have, but it's the coach that's not giving him the minutes... probably doesn't deserve them, but he is 19 years old.

    Marc-Andre Fleury is still 19, but a month short of being eligable for the World junior team.

    It's tough to be the best offensive weapon of your team when you barely play 10 minutes per game.

    If he was playing better he would earn ice time. You can play that angle both ways.

    Yeah but in the actual situation, Jarvis should give Kost more ice-time...The Bulldogs scored like 3 goals in the last 5 games!

    Why should he just give Kastitsyn ice time. Just because he is a first round pick? That isn't fair to every other player that is competing for that ice time.

    I agree with you if it was in fact the NHL or if the guy is doggin it or not attempting to follow instructions. However, since its a developmental league I would suggest that sans those 2 reasons, I would think it a bad idea to severly limit his icetime unless one believes it would adversly affect his development (which may be in fact the case).

    If we were going by the title and saying best 19 year olds in the AHL, arent Horton, Vanek, Suter and M.A. Fleury in a class of their own?

    Bergeron????? I still think he's a glorified Stajan, which doesnt amount to that much. (coming from a leaf fan)

    Bergeron is awesome, what are you talking about? He had an awesome rookie year as an 18 year old, and he's raking it up in the AHL with 18 points in 14 games so far. I'd take him over Horton and Vanek at this point in time.

    Why is Kostitsyn getting little icetime?

    Because the guys is not ready. He is very raw. He has one of the best, if not the best, shot you could see from a 19 years old. Sick move, smooth skating. But as far as playing the game : using is linemate properly, position play. He is not ready. He's still looking to make it all by himself and float quite a bit.

    He either gonna become a superstar, a dangerous powerplay sniper or nothing at all. My guess right now is on the powerplay sniper.

    Though, at this point, it's hard to gauge because he is in an environnement he is not used to, in a style of play he is not used to, in a language he is not used to. He may make giant step when he start to catch something the coach say :teach:

    Zhakarov isnt getting much playing time like Kostityn he is still very much in the raw. Very good talent nonetheless.
