He is not on the list. These are prospects only.

I like Filatov to have an Alfreddson like career, but I'm going with the easy answer of Tavares. I still believe he'll be the Sakic to Crosby's Gretzky and Ovechkin's Lemieux.

Stammer for me.

Taveres over Stamkos, really?

Well right now it´s a landslide in favor of Tavares. I have seen both play and Stamkos looks better atm. Though Tavares is 1 year younger so it can change for sure.

I have seen both play too, and I think Tavares looks better at the moment.. Stamkos is more complete though, but Tavares is better offensively..

Tavares

Better career doesn't mean better offensively. Could mean alot of things. That's why this is kind of a poorly worded question. Could mean conn smythe/cup winner, best leader, best all-round player... etc.

Anyway, I really have no idea as I've never seen any of them play. I will pick at random.

Turris, the way they talked about him on all of the draft shows, it sounded like he was the next Sakic

worstfaceoffmanever 08-14-2008 03:13 PM

Tavares is the safe bet, but don't write off Turris or Pääjärvi.

Sorry, when I posted there was no poll.. lol

Voted Tavares.

flamebird 08-14-2008 04:42 PM

went with turris, stamkos a very close 2nd

mckeefan* 08-14-2008 05:09 PM

Stamkos because Tavares will be on the Leafs.

dubey 08-14-2008 05:18 PM

Tavares

CertifiedPublicGuin 08-14-2008 05:23 PM

I felt like being a little different, so I went with a kid who's a star in the making and has been a star at every level, Paajarvi. The kid will be a very good player. He's truly a fun one to watch. This is a tough list to pick from though. It's just too easy for me to take Tavares, so I thought about things a lot more.

Stamkos and Tavares? They're same age.

7 months gives Tavares an entire SEASON of development time. At this stage of a prospect's career, 7 months difference is not the same age.

Harrison Ford 08-14-2008 11:02 PM

I went sleeper pick with JVR.

Also Tedenby is spelled with one "d".

And he's not a year older either. I've tried to argue that exact same point in another discussion and get riipped for it. Both '90 born let's just leave it at that.

I can agree with that.

I think the majority of the time people are saying he's a year older is probably referring to the fact that Stamkos was an '08 product and Tavares an '09er. But I get ya.
