    Seabrook, Ehrhoff, Boumeester, Kronwall, and Spacek could be big next year, but idk about leading the NHL-big.

    Gonchar seems to do well when there are low expectations, so he should continue his late-season-surge in Pittsburgh.

    Morris is also a decent choice, and Preissing had an excellent 05-06.

    Carle is a sleeper pick.

    Bouwmeester should put up big totals next year.

    Lol isn't Gonchar in his 30's, shouldn't we just compare the young guys.

    Can't you see that the blueliners he mentionned are for the most part not elite defencemen (or not quite there yet in some cases) ?

    Just thought I'd add an interesting note, 2 years ago i thought Kondratiev had good offensive potential, slowly my enthusiasm faded away, I was checking last nights AHL scores and he had a 5 point night as to his team won 6-0, so perhaps he,s one to keep an eye on yet.

    And Visnovsky is?

    He's good....but I would hardly call him elite...

    As for my top 5 point producers, in no particular order:

    Brent Seabrook
    Sergei Gonchar
    Chris Campoli (This guy gets no love)
    Jay Bouwmeester
    Niklas Kronwall

    He will tear the league up and will lead all players in points.

    I predict 45 goals and 97 assists for Drats.

    Campoli is a great player who will be a good #4 down the line, but he isn't as polished as some of the other defensemen.

    He's top 10 easy in my opinion. That elite in my book.

    Not much love for Wideman, although I wouldn't put him in the top five either. Wideman is definately a sleeper.

    Not to be an a-hole, but why is this thread in the "Prospects" board if you are going to include guys who are nowhere near prospects? :dunno:

    Zubov
    Pitkanen
    Blake
    Ohlund
    Salo
    Jovanovski
    Foote

    Most people would agree these guys are all better than him...I know I for one wouldn't take Visnovsky over any of these guys, and I would be tempted to take McCabe, Kronwall, Regher, Meszaros and Bouwmeester ahead of him as well...I would hardly call that elite. Is he a good defenseman? Of course, but to say he is top 10 easy is a bit of a stretch.
