I would argue that Kopitar has produced more (points, not playoff appearances) than either Cammi or Fro. He was an every game NHL player at 19. Cammi didn't start to put up big numbers until he was 23. Fro at 24. Granted the lock-out stunted their growth a little bit, but at 19 Frolov was still in Russia while Cammi was still in college.
