    'I saw a special on that OJ kid.

    Stern said he will fail if he tries to enter the NBA prior to his High School class graduating because the CBA was agreed upon by both the players and the league, so it is the legally binding agreement. SO he will have to wait so he might as well go to college.

    In hockey I dont know, but this is symptomatic of a huge problem in sports. We just keep going younger and younger, corrupting these kids.

    The overhyoe machine in hockey is in full effect. I am sure the "next corsby" will come along soon enough. LMAO, the next Crosby, it is getting so ridiculous

    Angelo Esposito a 2007 eligible is probably the next hockey players. He has already the size and he is the unanimous best north american for his age

    The kid is 16 and in 9th grade that means he failed 2 times (or was held back). He will be 18 before he is a junior in high school which is probably why he will fail to make it. I have no idea about the "next Crosby".

    Wayne Orr - born in Brantford Sound, Ontario. 11 months old, crawls with a dexterity rarely seen in 18-month-olds. Never misses his mouth with the spoon, and has quite a temper.

    This is getting ridiculous. The next Crosby? How about the next McCauley Caulkin? or Mozart? Who's going to be the next four-year-old musical genius? Anyone got some prospects?

    Update: Several scouts attending his 6 a.m. feeding yesterday. They left the Orr household drooling more than Wayne.
    "He's a can't miss prospect," noted Atom AAA scout Bob Birddog. "We're trying to get him to commit to our program, but he's not saying anything to us yet. He's very coy."

    What about the next Gretzky, Lemieux, Orr, Roy etc. Not Crosby. Crosby hasn't even been drafted, let alone proven himself at the NHL level.

    The premise was the next player to be extensively hyped so saying the 'next Crosby' is not ridiculous. You are just not understanding the context.

    That is quite possibly the silliest post I have seen for awhile. "unanimous best north american"????? Unanimous among who? His family?

    Prior to at least Midget age, these speculations are a waste of time because the so-called top players don't get seen enough and don't play against each other enough to have any idea how they stack up. All you have is "stats" - Johnny scored 100 goals as a Timbit...Jim scored 150 points in Atom...etc etc.

    You may be right though that he will be hyped because at least he has you out here pumping him up!

    Brule can't be the next one after Crosby - he is the same age and is simply being overshadowed. Great player though...

    Crosby is currently considred as the next "Gretzky", but he plays more like Dionne did.
    It's to early to announce a next Crosby. He's '05 eligible. Too much can change for a guy who's eligible in '06 or '07....

    Rumor has it, there was a child conceived tonight Medicine Hat who should be a keeper in a few years.

    (This one definitely ranks up there among the most inane thread topics ever.)

    I had decided not to mention this website as it is a new competitor to HF. I hope I won't be ban but I believe we have a right to the broadest number of ressources on prospects.

    The thing I like is that unlike HF, they tend to have previews of younger guys instead of just the 2004 and 2005. They also have links to other handy ressources out there.

    Here it is: HOCKEYOUNGSTERS

    Also, an interesting new company focusing on safer, lighter equipment for youngsters in the game: SAFERPROSPECTS

    Angelo is a VERY talented player but he is NOT a unanimous selection for best player in his age group.

    I believe he is an '89. There are A LOT of other talented '89's out there.

    More so, the talent that the 90's are showing is slowly getting DANGEROUS. There is some very, very, very good talent out in Western Canada that have 1990 listed on their birth certificate as their birth year.

    You must be from Europe because EVERYONE in North America was polled and EVERYONE said Angelo Esposito, even reluctant hockey dads had to admit he was the best. It was UNANIMOUS.

    Just kidding, I had actually heard of him. Any relation to Tony or Phil?

    I played against Angelo and I asked him after the game, he is Phil's nephew.

    Beside the fact that is very funny (really LMAO), I think he was talking about the hype suronding Crosby, and not Crosby as a example to be reproduce.

    IMHO, he belive this general overhyping attitude in all sports is as risdiculous as we do belive.
