    How would you rank the top sophomore performances this season? Not just points or scoring, but in terms of impact.

    1. Nash
    2. Frolov
    3. Spezza
    4. Cheechoo
    5. Zetterberg
    6. Weiss
    7. Leopold
    8. Bouwmeester
    9. Arnason
    10. Hemsky

    Too bad Jackman's injured. I'm sure I've neglected some people (Kotalik? Corvo? Backman?).

    chistov has regressed, Weiss has had aa pretty good sophmore campaign, and if Kolnik counts as a Sophmore, then him too.

    Out of curiosity, what's your rationale on putting Frolov below Spezza and Cheechoo? Especially Cheechoo... I thought I had him kind of high.

    Spezza should be higher than Zetterberg and Frolov...imo he's been pretty damn good for his first "real" year.

    Sorry man for the long wait to reply....I feel Spezza is the real deal, Frolov is better defensively, but Spezza is better ofensively.

    As for Cheechoo, the guy had less around him this season and has had a great breakout season. Cheechoo and Frolov are probably equal right now.

    I just think Frolov wouldn't have progressed as quickly if the team had been healthy the past 2 years. Of course, with more talent around him, he could be even better than he is right now, but maybe he doesn't get the same ice time.

    Anyways, Frolov, is going to be a great player and if LA ever gets healthy, they would be scary.

    Playing on a line with Stumpel and Palffy (that was a planned line before the season started, but with Deadmarsh and Allison not starting the season that got thrown out the window), he would've progressed quicker than he has in my opinion.
    You look at Spezza, a great young player, not taking that away from him, he's had Hossa, Smolinski, Havlat, etc., etc., as linemates. Frolov has picked up 20 goals playing with Stumpel and ____________ (insert name here). Usually a rookie like Scott Barney, John Tripp, and Cammy (technically not a rookie) have played with Stumpel and Frolov. With that, I would put Frolov ahead of Spezza.

    Despite Zetterberg's injury he's only 8 points behind frolov (in 21 fewer games) and 12 behind Spezza (in 19 fewer). He has something like 14 points in his last 12 games. He's played exceptionally defensively and carries his line offensively. Were it not for that broken leg he'd be on a 63 point pace, which is higher than any other sophmore player as well.

    I give Rick Nash the nod as the best because he's his team's only real scoring threat this year and people focus in on him much more.
