    Guys,

    2004 Entry Draft

    1. Alexander Ovechkin (RUS)
    2. Evgeni Malkin (RUS)
    3. Rostislav Olesz (CZE)

    (Scout prognose)

    If the scout prognose arrives, it will be the first time ever in the NHL history, that 3 EUROPEANS go first.

    So what's happend to the NORTHAMERICANS?

    Than otherwise we should put the NHL in an EHL (europaen hockey league). :lol:

    It's obvious that in the near future european players will dominate....

    It isn't obvious, but it looks like Ovechkin and Malkin will go 1 and 2, but Olesz and Schremp should battle it out to see who goes 3rd overall.

    I am not suprised that the Europeans are slowly starting to take over hockey (the offesnsive part at least). But North America is still home to the top defenceman and goaltenders in the world. And we all know the old saying "Defence Wins Championships", that's what the Devils did last season.

    they are european born players but stefan and brendl were playing in north america before they got drafted so they are considered north american players in the draft rankings...

    same way that this year vanek was ranked among north american skaters due to his playing at a us college rather than being ranked as a european

    Yeah, in 1999 four Euros went in the first four picks.

    Also, don't forget that as well as Brendl and Stefan being busts, the Sedin girls are borderlining on bust.

    What a terrible bunch of players...

    Maybe...

    Staal
    Horton
    Nash
    Bouwmeester
    Brule
    Doan
    Marleau
    Tanguay etc....

    Can help...

    Crap, we are screwed. We shouldn't have spent all our time developing goalies!

    Fleury
    Oullette
    Leclaire
    Emery
    Giggy
    Bacishua
    Harding
    Raycroft
    Sauve
    Theodore
    Turco....

    Damn guys, those Europeans are sure going to dominate.

    Wait! I forgot to include Americans!

    This has nothing to do with CSB rankings.

    It has to do with where the player's from... Brendl and Stefan are Europeans.

    I think it's all about Russia. The talent they've been pumping into the draft is just unreal. All other European countries seem to be lagging, however.

    Instead of making debates on if we should allow bodycheks for the young ones we should let them develop their abilities...

    I would also add Dipietro, Luongo, and Blackburn to the NA team of young net-minders.

    Aside from Lundqvist, im not too familiar with many Euro goalies with tons of potential.

    How can you call Stefan a bust but not the Sedin's when he has outproduced them? that was blatantly idiotic statement.

    I guess with....

    Hull
    Sakic
    Savard
    Doan

    right behind the top 5, doesn't count hey?

    Savard would be leading the league no problem if he had been in all the games for Atlanta and Alex Tanguay would be Top 3 if he hadn't missed games either.

    As for Dany Heatley, well....we all know he would be ahead of Kovalchook if not for the terrible accident.

    Because Patrik Stefan cannot manage to play more then 72 games.

    Not only has he underachieved in his career, the guy has been injured a lot!

    The Sedin's have spent about three and a half seasons in North America... and they seem to just be developing slowly. Stefan's been playing the North American game for six and a half years and has done as much as the Sedin's... if not less.

    Henrik and Daniel Sedin have stuck in the NHL over their careers so far, playing with one of the top teams in the league, and have managed to stay away from the AHL.

    - Henrik's missed 5 games over three and a half seasons of hockey.
    - Daniel's missed 13.
    - Patrik's missed 60 games over four and a half seasons.

    Even if the twins have been third line players, that's much better then what Stefan's shown so far. They've stuck to it, playing on a team with a permanent #1 line... they've stayed healthy and avoided healthy scratches throughout their mediocre careers so far... but there's still potential there.

    Stefan's done nothing and managed to underachieve... he's a BUST. His #1 overall potential seems to have vanished.
