I disagree.. they've played far too little in the NHL to use their current stats as a judgement of their scoring potential. Ott played 3 years in the OHL, Roy 4.

1999-00 Windsor Spitfires OHL 66 23 39 62 131
2000-01 Windsor Spitfires OHL 55 50 37 87 164
2001-02 Windsor Spitfires OHL 53 43 45 88 178

1999-00 Kitchener Rangers OHL 66 34 53 87 044
2000-01 Kitchener Rangers OHL 65 42 39 81 114
2001-02 Kitchener Rangers OHL 62 43 46 89 092
2002-03 Kitchener Rangers OHL 49 28 50 78 073

Use the Spezza arguement all you like, but the fact remains that Ott still scored more goals without Spezza than Derek Roy ever did in the OHL. Ott has a pretty darn impressive offensive potential, the fact that he can do so much more tends people forget what has him in the NHL in the first place.

I don't see their offensive potential as anything a world a part. I wouldn't be suprised if Ott did better actually. I've been impressed with how decent his hands are, they seem to be better than Morrow's.
