Others are likely to be close to sure things down the road like Ovechkin, Iginla, Thornton, Kovalchuk
Some guys that haven't gotten much mention:
Eric Staal: May have missed out on 70 goals and 70 assists.
Jason Spezza: May have missed out on 50-60 goals and 90 assists
Henrik Zetterberg: 50-60 goals, 70-80 assists
Dany Heatley: 70 goals, 75 assists
Rick Nash: 70 goals, 50 assists
Guys like that. Now some of those guys are big reaches but you never know.
I'll agree with Heatley,Iginla,Martin St Louis,Briere,Kovalchuk,Nash but the rest I can't.
I feel that giving Zetterberg,Spezz,Staal needed that year to get confident. If you look at closely, you'll find that those 3 came back in 05 on fire. The 1st lock out help more career then it didn't. But the 2nd one (now) it will ruin and end alot more career. I'm sceard that it'S the last we see Selanne,Whitney,Brodeur(I say one more year),Jarg(might be done, still think he'll come back for another 2 year). But I'm telling you this one is bad for hockey.
