You said "but dubbing Ovechkin a 60-70 goalscorer is ridiculous. Hell he may not even go number one overall"
Same as saying to the best student you won't get 90% at your exam, you might never get to school, a car could hit you!
As far as I Know, Ovechkin would have been drafted 1st no mather what in 2003... He's a russian version of Crosby...
Actually you did insinuate an anti Euro bias by this simple comment- ".Ahhhhhhh sorry he's not a good canadian kid....."
I will simplify it for you, although I don't think I could make it much clearer than my original post.
Dubbing an 18 years, a guy who hasn't been drafted yet, a guy who hasn't stepped on NHL ice yet, a 60-70 goal scorer imo is ridiculous. So much could happen in the next week, month, year whatever. You act like it is a guarentee, slam dunk, he will score 60-70 goals.
I am not saying he couldn't score 60-70 goals, but to act like it is a given, like you do, is ridiculous.
