Hey man, just cause I've irritated you in another thread does not mean you should attempt to trash me in this one.

Grow some thick skin.

If you wanna talk about Ladd let's talk about Ladd. Or let's talk about some of Vega's other EXTREMELY questionable statements like Iginla is a 20 goal scorer without Conroy or that Kobasew will struggle to stay in the NHL. The guy has no credibility of his opinion is Ladd is just further proof of that.

I have admittedly only seen Ladd in one game, so I'm trying to not read to much into his performance from that single game. But in that game I couldn't believe the guy was considered a top prospect, he just didn't seem to know where to be, or what to do; seemed to have poor on-ice vision.

But, by almost all reports he's a guy who whould pan out, so I'm assuming I saw him on a bad day.

Nonetheless, I don't have him in my top 10:

1. Ovechkin
2. Malkin
3. Olesz
4. Meszaros
5. Barker
6. Schwarz
7. Radulov
8. Tukonen
9. Smid
10. Montoya

Sadly Iginlas career is over if he plays without Conroy next season

this is the prime reason that Sutter only wants to give Iggy a one year deal

we'll see who is right this time next year

Now I'm certainly not comparing Getzlaf to Lindros or Lemieux but think about it.
But it is not like Getzlaf is a great scorer, his past 2 seasons without Ladd, his numbers weren't that good. Maybe it is him who was feeding off of Sjostrom last season?

forget the stats my friends

you have to actually WATCH THE GAMES YOURSELF to get a proper assessment.

Huh? Getzlaf lead the WHL in points per game this season and finished top 20 in league scoring despite missing games at the start of the year while he was in Anahiem and the World Juniors at Christmas. Getzlaf is the real deal.

Ryan Getzlaf is the most sure fire NHLer I've ever seen come out of the Hitmen organization, and that includes one Brad Stuart, who was with us for one playoff run.

You're crazy.

Literally.

That was probably the most out to lunch post I've read on here and that's saying a lot. You might want to try watching another sport it's obvious you don't have a clue about this one...
