  1. Pick one prospect (has never played an NHL game) for each team who has the most talent. No other qualities considered, simply the most talented prospect for your team.

    thx

    Konstantin Pushkaryov as far as skill ,maybe Jeff Tambellini . I have to get more familar with Tukonen still.
     
  4. in the same sense that Peter Forsberg and Nick Lidstrom are the best players in the league. I'm simply wondering which single player has the most overall talent, however you define it I guess, on a team by team basis.

    Ryan Kesler played around 20 games for us this year. My vote goes to Koltsov.

    Granted, we've only seen him play 15 games at the NHL level, but he showed everyone what he is capable of.

    Edit: Oops, didn't read the whole thing. I guess it would be Wolski for Colorado.

    A lot of those players have played in the NHL. He asked for players that have yet to play a game.

    I picked players who were under the 20 game mark of 'prospect' for HF. At least 20 of them haven't played a single game yet.

    Krikunov has a lot of potential but I think the skill of Koltsov wins over him for Vancouver.

    Like Joffrey Lupul and Tuomo Ruutu? Both played 60+ games. Not exactly a prospect if you ask me.


    If you're looking for pure overall skill, Corey Perry is probably the Ducks' choice. If it's overall skill, definetely Ryan Getzlaf.

    Dude.....don't crap a brick. How long has it been since he actually changed the spelling of his name on his jersey to "Kostitsyn"? A few days? A week? Give non-Habs fans a break, everyone's been spelling it the other way for a couple years.

    :dunno:

    Getzlaf takes my vote as the most talented Ducks prospect. Smid seems to be another excellent kid as for pure skills. Perry is a step behind IMO (skating issue)

    When it comes to pure talent, I think Timofei Shishkanov is the most talented prospect for Nashville. He was compared to Kovalchuk in terms of skill level. I think both Radulov and Glazachev are supposed to be a step down. Though I think Radulov uses his talent more.

    Wow, Shishkanov is only 6'1"?

    I've seen him a couple times and he looks much bigger than 6'1".

    since Colaiacovo has played 4 then Steen is by leaps and bounds our best Prospect to never play an NHL Game, the rest just don't come close to him.

    Yeah, he's around 6'1". I stood next to him and he might be a touch taller. But he weighs well over 215. That's not bad for a player as fast and agile as he is. He's an incredibly strong player.
