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.
Ovechkin could step into the NHL tomorrow and within 3 weeks he would be in the top 10. He's 18, and Russia dosen't let him play with the Junior team since he's the best player on the senior team. He's also the best player of his Russian Super Ligue team, and has beaten all the records of all russian players...... He's the best ever Russian player.................... is that clear enough?
