That's a nice even-handed assessment.

What the hell are you talking about? Stamkos was the no. 1 overall pick and extremely well regarded coming up for a reason...just like Tavares was. Stamkos is absolutely supposed to be better than Richards and Carter if he achieves his talent prospects.

But, by all means, lets tank and go for the no. 1 overall.

Team Canada disagrees with you. Mike Richards is one of the best two-way centers in the league, and an exceptional PKer. Jeff Carter didn't score 46 goals by accident. You bring up Marleau...the man scored 19 goals in '07-'08...Carter is on pace for a low 30s total this year. Chris Pronger is one of the best all-around defensemen in the league. Kimmo Timonen is pretty damn good himself.

Say it with me: Negadelphia.

Absolutely, would love a player like Hossa. Problem is you're equating him to Kovy, and the two aren't anything alike except that they both score goals. Hossa is a very good defensive player, while Kovy watches other folks play D and then picks up loose pucks that come his way.

No, we need to stop giving out salary cap crippling contracts.
the difference between pavel and henrik... they win.

they were both late, late draft picks but don't you consider them on par with stamkos if not better? exactly.
