    As the generation of Sakic, Lemieux etc... pass i think the new generation of superstars will be filled with 50% European players or more, unlike the previous generation of mostly North American Players.

    That certainly is an interesting pick when you have Lehtonen and MA Fluery available.

    Yeah the southeast division don't look pretty.Washington,Atlanta , Floride yeah Tampa bay are lucky to be in this division it's not pretty hard to win the southeast division.These teams are last on the standings that's why they almost alawaus have good draft.

    Bergeron is NOT one of the league's next big star players.
     
  13. True. He will be a consistent 60 point player though.

    consistent 60 points? Lets not get crazy, remember how he vanished in the playoffs. I could see 40 points but 60 i dunno, I think Bergeron will hit the sophmore slump hard

    He didn't vanish in the playoffs, I don't know what the hell your talking about. He scored a nice OT goal in the 2nd game and had a strong first 4 games. The last 3 weren't great, but the whole team blew...

    Bergeron IMO, will be a star player in the NHL. He doesn't have elite skills, but he has skills nonetheless to have at least a few PPG seasons. The best thing about Bergeron's potential though is how well of an overall game he's going to have. Future great leader IMO too, will have the ability to lead a team to the Cup. Definite playoff performer.

    I also want to make this clear about Bergeron, he will max out his potential whatever it maybe, this guy is a true player. He's the closiest thing to an young Yzerman right now.

    Bergeron sophmore slump... I don't think so, no way...

    I think you're overrating him just a bit. I highly doubt there will be many more Steve Yzerman's out there. Bergeron is not one of them, I'll let you that.

    I see him being a 50-60 pt player and nothing more. Players like him are excellent 2nd liners, but they can't lead a team to a cup.

    Patrice Bergeron is one of the hardest working players I have ever seen on the ice. From what I understand he is also one of the hardest working players off the ice as well. I could definetley put a few different players instead of him for the next wave of star players, but he will have a great career.

    Why would you say that? Dubnyk is huge and has loads of raw talent. Don't be surprised if he is the next coming of Sean Burke. It may take time, but Dubnyk has the potential to be as good as any other goalie prospect.

    That's an insult to a young Yzerman, who was a gamebreaking talent as soon as he stepped into the league.

    Bergeron is more like a Brindamour type player. Might have a similar career, IMO but comparing Bergeron to Yzerman is just insane. Might as well compare Afinegenov to Bure.

    No, he doesn't.

    He doesn't have the potential of Lehtonen or MA Fluery.

    OH...i see....what was I thinking....oh yeah...kind of like the same way Martin Brodeur couldn't compare to Trevor Kidd. Dubnyk has the potential to be the best goalie.....every goalie has that potential. That is the thing with prospects, some of them don't show their true colors (skills) until years down the road. So yeah actually, Dubnyk could be the best goalie prospect out there.

    His scoring in the playoffs was on pace with what he did during the year. I'm a Montreal fan and never felt comfortable when he had the puck in our end. Don't worry about the "elite skills"; He just (July) turned 19 as he was a very young '03. He's the fastest improving '03 over the last two years no matter where you rank him overall. He cannot continue to improve at this pace or he would be top 20 in scoring this coming year. Of the '03s only Zerdev (who's 9 months older) had a comparable season. Not bad for a guy who was supposed to play another year of Junior after only one season in the Q.
