    hy guys!!!

    My question is, who will be the next franchise player in the NHL???
    All guys say ovechkin, but his progress is stocking..... Can he be the TOP STAR for the next 10 years or is he only an other high hyped russian, who's an egoist like bure, kovalchuk....?

    My opinion is Sidney Crosby! I know he's very young but, he has the hockey sense that separated Gretzky and Mario Lemieux from the pack and he's not afraid to do what it takes to win games.

    Crosby hardly has anything to prove. The player who Wayne Gretzky last summer said could some day break his scoring records has been an offensive terror this season and he excites people whenever he is on the ice.

    I'm sure he'll be "THE NEXT ONE"! :rolly:

    My top 3 are:

    1. Sidney Crosby
    2. Marc-Andre Fleury
    3. Alexander Ovechkin

    So what's your opinion? I would be pleased, if anyone would tell me his own opinion.

    thnx

    NObody and i am betting all i have will ever come close to Gretzky...It wasnt that Gretzky was so so better than others it was just high scoring league then with few europeans....(wont even go in all details about goalies improvement,equpiement,training...)

    Other than that Crosby and Alex will be great

    Huh? ok datsjuk is a good one, but already 25 so he's at his limit. and he'll never score more than 100pts in a season.

    ok your right!, but I think crosby will be able (if he's healthy) to score more than 140pts in a season and ovechkin can't ever reach that.

    Hey look, another thread assuming all Russian players will have egos and end up like Kovalchuk and Bure. Wait, Aren't/Weren't Kovalchuk and Bure Franchise players?

    So what happens when the Pens end up with all 3? :handclap:
    Can they all be franchise players on the same team?

    sorry

    He's not at the limit, but with 25 he isn't a prospect anymore. Probably a nhl star right now, but he's progress stops... cause he isn't 20. Ok he wins experience despite.....

    A lot of NHL stars had there best seasons under 25 like lindros, kariya etc,...

    Sad thing is even more posters of this type are going to be showing up over the next year and a half. Nothing against Crosby, but I really hope in the next year some monster defenseman emerges, like Jovonovski in 1994, and takes the #1 spot in the 2005 draft, just for the mental anguish it will cause these people.

    BTW, :handclap: for Slay.

    And the Next One is Randy Orton, in case you all haven't been paying attention.

    People were saying that last year too.

    Development of players is obviously still a subject people are struggling with on this message board.

    Just going to add my two cents here. Crosby is either the next Mario (since he is the greatest) or the next Daigle. We have a while before we find out. Fleury is amazing and might be the quickest goalie i have ever seen live and could be something special but i depends on his team how the organization keeps up. and Alex i think will be a sure fire star after a season or two. Now Kovalchuk is turning out to be a complete player. He is killing penalties adn playing in every situation. Hartley has done wonders for him and he is a great player. Datsyuk is going to be great it just takes prospects out of Detroit to develop longer because they dont bring these guys up till they are completely ready. Zetterberg and Datsyuk are going to be superstars and hudler has a chance.

    And for the guy who said that Pittsburgh will end up with all 3 (Alex,Fleury,Crosby) i cant get excited this early in the afternoon. :yo:

    The way the NHL is heading there will be on one to break Gretzky's records. It's too defensive. As far as the next is concerned I think Crosby has the best shot but he is only 16 and a lot can happen between now and when he is drafted.

    Bingo. A 7-2 behemoth with the skating stride of Wojtek Wolski, shooting skills of Robbie Schremp and the hitting game of Dion Phaneuf.

    Puts Crosby to shame. And in his spare time, he wrestles sumo wrestlers.

    The secret was in his diet, which consists of raw meat, if I remember correctly :p

    This should really be "Who will be THE NEXT "THE NEXT ONE"?" because we already had someone labeled as THE NEXT ONE, Eric Lindros....
    And that's not even touching on THE NEXT ONENESS of Dan Cleary and Jason Spezza
