Which ranking would you give to Crosby?
I'd give him 10B.
9.5A or 10B. Depends on how much the league opens up and who ends up in Pittsburg by the beginning of the season.
Knowing HF probably 10A.
Surely he will be rated higher than AO....and he is a 9A. Cant let a russian be ranked higher than the next NA great one can we?
Hey, you answered your own question.
I'd give him a 10B. To quote the "HF Player Projection Rankings"
I think the hole is the new rule and stuff. Have to see how things pan out.
if hes not worthy of a 10, then who is. I'd say 10B
Take Ovechkin's rating and add a point...
He's a better prospect than AO even at a younger age...
Should be a 9B, (I personally think 8A or B), but will be given the G.O.D. status of 10A.
I think that's certainly debateable. Despite the hype, Alex is an extremely good prospect and if he's not Sidney's equal, he's darn close. Let's face it, if Alex were north american he'd have been more hyped. After all Spezza recieved significantly more hype than Kovalchuk did until about 1 month before the draft when it became clear Ilya would go 1st. I'm with McKenzie on this one, that the gap between Crosby and Ovechkin is very small.
Crosby's gotta be an 11R
10B, he definately has a much larger upside than Ovechkin. People can say they are close all they want. And right now, they may be. Crosby will only get better. The same goes for Ovechkin.
Surely a 10. I would say 10B.
Anyway, Pittsburgh should hurry up in their ranking, I doubt he gonna stay a prospect for long. He will be a graduated fast enough.
I think it's damn close between him and Ovechkin. It's like Gretzky and Lemieux all over again. The flashy horse or the astonishing hockey sense.
Ive always been interested in hockey. Ive always been a fan. And I can't remember the last time I saw so many great prospects. The future of the NHL is definately going to be revealed in full force over the next few seasons.
Crosby's gotta be a 10A. At worst a 10B. I'm not saying he's "guaranteed" of anything- no one is.
But I don't understand people saying he should be given a 9. If Crosby isn't worth a 10, then you might as well set the highest standard at 9, because no one would ever get a 10.
There are alot of people that dislike Crosby. I'm not sure why. But the guy is going to be something special.
I think he should get a 10 C.
He's done just about everything could ask of a prospect, thus the 10 rating. He has a chance to be one of the all-time greats. However, he could also become "just" a first line centerman.
I think 10 C is fair.
10B for me. I think, worst case scenario, Sidney is the next Joe Sakic.
Please explain this one. Tell the world what you have seen in his game that leads you to believe he will top out as a Patrick Elias type forward with a chance of dropping to the second line.
I can't wait to hear specific examples of what you have witnessed that formed your opinion.
I know i'm not a scout, and I have nothing to do with the NHL besides being a fan. But I don't see Crosby being anything less that a top 5 player in the league. The guy has skill that previous draft picks could only dream of. I'd say he will be a Joe Sakic type player before his carreer is over. I believe he will be slightly more productive than sakic.
As good as Sakic is, he has the potential to be a notch above
Edit : Can't beleive I wasted my 900th post, on something not positive about Joe.
LOL, I agree. And it wasn't a waste. At least your talking positive about Sid.
