    Wolski doesn't have half the defensive awareness that Satan does.

    Not that I know, but Satan probably didn't at that point either. Just a guess anyway.

    Uhh, no.

    You're underestimating how great Lindros was early in his career.

    He single handedly carried his team on his back often.

    He single handedly got John Leclair that absurd contract.

    He could pound even heavyweights into the ice.


    Wheeler wont be taught in a system that will breed Lindros type players.

    I didn't mean Hart-candidate Lindros. I meant late nineties Lindros. Wheeler will be a point-per-game player with over 100 PIM, and will be a guy that can anchor a line. Either what Lindros became or what Gratton was supposed to be, take your pick.

    Wheeler seems to have more offensive upside. Not too firmiliar with Kozlov as an 18 year old, but it would seem at this point that he is more of a setup guy as a center...Wheeler seems to be more of a finisher than a setup guy.

    If they reach their potential... hit their ceilings...I think

    Wheeler....Daze
    Wolski....Hejduk
    Chipchura....Scatchard, with much better all around skills, especially leadership and defense. But size, role, production wise... similar. OR Konowalchuck with less offense. Hard to compare a guy like Chip, he's one of those guys that will either be a rare, valuable part of a team, or a nobody.
    Radulov....Mogilny is fine, but I don't think he will have near the success. Any light, non-physical russian forward...who of course can score. Take your pick.

    I like the Lindros comparison to Wheeler. He is less physical and if he stays healthy he will not be the greatest player ever like Lindros could have been. But both are big, good skaters with great hands. It will easier to find a comparison once Wheeler plays with guys at his own talent level.

    Stafford. Reminds me of Keith Tkachuk. Again big, good on thier skates, good hands. Stafford will probally hit as much but i think in the NHL he would fight a lot less. Right now Stafford is an inch shorter and about 10 pds lighter. Once he fills out they should be the same size.
