    My question is quite simple : who has the potential to be the next Todd Bertuzzi, Jarome Iginla or Keith Tkatchuk? Who will more likely take his game to the next level and be a dominant powerfoward?

    Thanks.

    This might sound homerish, but Aaron Voros.

    Anthony Stewart, hands down. The kid reminds me so much of Jarome Iginla, on and off ice ice.

    Homer pick: Kris Chucko.
     
  4. I too, vote for Anthony Stewart.

    Anthony Stewart.

    The guy's like 6'2, 230 pounds and he skates like the wind.

    Mind helping me out? I'm in a keeper league... Voros is still available to be picked up...

    What's his potential? Will he crack the Devils lineup, next year?

    Thanks in advance, dude.

    Maybe. Grab him. He's leading Albany in points and has shown some really soft hands and tough game. His biggest problem is taking excess penalties, but we Devils fans have constantly growing expectations of him. The chances of him breaking the lineup immediately are pretty slim with the amazing depth the Devils have, but he is going to be an NHL player in a year or two.

    The kid has all the physical tools and his talent continues to impress.

    Just to judge by his numbers... in 20 games he has 9 goals, 9 assists for 18 points, top for AHL rookies, 59 penalty minutes and is only a -1..

    Anthony Stewart for one, then the panthers got nate horton coming up as well. We're gonna be beasts for years to come :D

    Shiskanov is another of high note

    edit:
    i can't forget voros. I post on the njdevs board a good deal and they talk highly of him. I haven't seen him play yet, but he sounds great from what they say. Takes quite a bit of stick penalties but his hands sound awful soft and he is huge.

    I'll go for one of the obvious ones here:

    Alexander Ovechkin

    What about Tukonen? Does he have what it takes to be successful? I don't see him on any posts.

    As it stands right now, I think Nate Horton and Alex Ovechkin are clearly the best two powerforward prospects.

    Still way to young. He's going to take a while to develop a PF game, and put it all together

    Why are people bringing up Kris Chucko? He is not a powerforward type here at the University of Minnesota. A good chippy rugged two-way forward who can score the dirty goal and play defense but I don't think he can be called a powerforward. He is a good checker but definitely not a stand-in-front-of-the-net-and-push-defenders-away-with-one-hand-park-in-front-of-the-goalie type of guy. More like a Jamie Langenbrunner type of a guy.
