    I highly doubt Kessel will bust, he is way to talented to bust.

    Wolski will somewhere atop that list, the kid is simply taring the OHL apart the past 3 months, the avs are sure lucky to have Svatos, Wolski and Richardson on there team.

    Which comes to my question where is Svatos on that list? Prucha is! and how about a guy by the name of Schremp?

    In terms of purely points potential...it should be Kessel #1, then the rest.

    Top ten id say...

    1) Kessel
    2) Pouliot
    3) Radulov
    4) Wolski
    5) Grigorenko
    6) Hudler
    7) Kostitsyn
    8) Boyes
    9) Connolly
    10) Jokinen

    The worst:
    Penner
    Sejna
    Upshall

    Thats IMO of course...

    Anyone not listed was already drafted in my keeper league.

    I really like Radulov myself but do you think he'll be playing in Nashville next year?

    With the way he is playing in the Q right now, with something silly like a 45 game scoring streak and 135 points with 6 games remaining... I wouldn't be suprised at all to see him make the team straight out of camp.

    If Colorado continues in it's very offensive happy system then Wolski should have a leg up.

    Of those listed Radulov, and Wolski are the two players I think will have the greatest success because of their actual potential, as well as the teams they play for.

    Do you think he'll play in the NHL next season?


    Anyone else want to take a stab at this?

    Where is Schremp's name. When he scores 65 points as a rookie next season everyone will be saying, well maybe he can play in the NHL.

    Certain players are left out because they are no longer available in my keeper pool.

    So is Kessel clearly # 1 for points in the next few years? Will he play in the NHL next season?

    Also out of this list who is clearly near the top and bottom?

    I put Radulov and Wolski at the top but after that its not very clear to me.

    Thanks!

    IMO, Kessel should be #1 on the list, but I also think he has about a 50/50 shot at being a bust(just how i feel). I really hope he does good though. For now I would have Kessel followed by Wolski and then Radulov. Also IMO there is no way kessel will play in the NHL next year, I'm guessing he'll stay in college..which he should.

    While, I usually downplay Voloshenko's points, the guy is still putting up good numbers.

    I don't know if anyone mentioned this, but how can you leave out Schremp?

    ...Haha. The man just wants to know about the players listed above. It's quite simple.

    The hilarity is that I JUST mentioned this in the HF gospel...that one of my favorite things is when someone asks about a specific set of players, and a bunch of posters jump in with,

    "OMGZ HOW COULD U LEAVE OUT MY FAVORITE TEAM'S TOP PROSPECT, YOULL SEE WHEN HE SCORES 100 GOALS NEXT YEAR AND PWNZ N00BZ!"

    Gold!

    If I had known it was for these guys for a keeper pool I would have assumed that he could choose only from these guys and I would not have thrown in my two cents about Schremp.

    Yes Shremp is my teams top prospect but I saw the list and saw players of his calibre but he is not in it, therefore I suggested his inclusion in the list. Since he is no longer in the keeper pool draft I can see why he's not there. Anyway, my predictions.

    1) Wolski
    2) Radulov
    3) Pouliot
    4) Kessel
    5) Grigorenko
    6) Boyes
    7) Prucha
    8) Hudler
    9) Olesz
    10) Latendresse

    These guys are definately not available in my pool.

    Schremp isn't avaiable but the other 2 are. Bolland I could have added to the list but haven't heard much of McGrath.

    Its pretty clear who's on top but who do you think will not put up the points from the list.

    I'm seeing it like this:

    Kessel
    Wolski
    Radulov
    Grigorenko
    Pouliot

    I think Grigorenko is gonna be a force in Detroit and he'll soon be there

    ANDREW LADD...........

    The guy is definitely going to be putting up some points....at some point he WILL end up on a line with Staal and playing on the first PP unit. So the second poster who said he would be amongst the WORST in point production missed the boat on that one.

    I originally had him at around 6th since he's started to see some time in Carolina with 6G 2A in 16 games. But it doesn't look like anyone else has him ranked in their top 10.

    Don't get me wrong, Ladd will put up points, but there are probably going to be 10 guys from this list that are going to outscore him year after year.

    He's available and doesn't look bad with 12G and 5A in 37 games. Although I don't have him in my top 10.
