    leaning between these two for my keeper league prospects draft.
    Who do you think has the highest potential? highest points this year?

    Also, some other guys I could pick and have been thinking about: Perezhogin, kastitsyn, shishkanov, upshall, higgins...almost anyone from the 2003 draft except for the top end guys

    So who would you pick?

    Although Koltsov figures to see time with Lemieux, go with Michalek, especially in a keeper league.

    Michalek. Koltsov is starting to be a little too hyped by some people around here.

    As all the Pens fans here I'd go with Michalek also.
    However, you need to think it this way IMO.
    Koltsov is a high risk high reward gamble.
    He could develop into a Bure type of player, but he could also develop into an average fourth liner with speed.
    Michalek on the other hand is a sure bet.
    He should be no less than a second liner.

    I also took Koltsov in my keeper league.
    BTW, I also have Nash, Kovalchuk, Sejna, Spezza, Huselius, Leneveu, Pitkanen, etc... so I'm in a good shape for the future which means I could take the Koltsov gamble. If you don't want to gamble, choose Michalek.

    Michalek is worth more right now so I would take him. Though, I like the way Koltsov is progressing.

    Koltsov has shown zero ability as a goal scorer . There is absoloutly nothing in his background to suggest he will be a scorer in the NHL.
    To suggest that there is a chance he could develop into another Bure is laughable. Thats like saying George Laraque may turn into Cam Neely.
    Michalek.

    So what. Thats a 2 week tourney. He has not shown any ability in any league over the course of a season.

    He also outscored Pavel Datsyuk, then teammate, in 00-01 (ppg-wise).

    Ouch, you're right, by .01%. Point still stands, as Datsyuk is 3 years older.

    Who cares if he has vnot shown the ability in the past? Everyone is picking Mickalek anyway.

    Because he/she said Koltsov had shown "zero" ability, which I disagreed with.
