Rank these for me based on 1) hype 2) potential (who was hyped the most? who has the greatest potential) 2000: Dipietro, Heatley 2001: Kovalchuk, Spezza 2002: Nash, Lethtonen 2003: MA Fleury, Staal 2004: Ovechkin, Malkin 2005: Crosby, Brule All I can say is WOWWWW is the NHL going to be great if they get rid of all the clutching and grabbing ....they will have quite a few superstars. My answers: 1) Hype is very hard to tell b/c they were all hyped soooo much but here it goes 2005, 2001, 2004, 2000, 2003, 2002 2) Potential again is hard b/c we already know how Heatley, Kovalchuk and Nash or doing. but here it goes again 2005, 2000, 2004, 2001, 2002, 2003 Reason is b/c I think Crosby is the next BIG THING, Heatley is going to be in top 3 in scoring for the next 10 years IMO, Ovechkin is suppose to be the best since Mario, Kovalchuk and Spezza are great and will be even better, Nash 41 goals and '03 MA fleury is on a really bad Pens team and same w/ Staal. don't know how much they can be a force on such weak teams, but give them time and they could be great too.
