Good pick. I've snagged him late in pools the last two years. He never disappoints.

I like these picks.......think all of them will start to emerge soon.Ruutu had a great second half last year,if he had'nt gooten off to such a slow start he would have been the calder winner going away last year.

Am I the only person in the world who doesn't think Spezza is ever going to become a top 10 forward?

I think Erat will pick up his game for sure.

Obviously Im expecting Ruutu and Frolov to have big years, but I picked Ruutu to score more points than him whenever the next season is in a $50 bet. What do you think my chances are?

Great list, I was just coming in here to say Bouwmeester and am glad other people are recognizing him.

Thats close, I'd say about 55/45 for Ruutu next year, I think Ruutu will score more in the long run (not that Frolov won't score quite a bit, but Ruutu has a bit more offense IMO) but for next year it should be close.

Good call on Nagy BTW, he's one of the most underrated players in the league, I could see him going even more than 75-80 points, I could see him breaking 90 Patrik Elias style.

Stefan is also a good pick for this, if he can get some combo of Heatley, Kovalchuk, Kozlov and McEachern on his wings, he could reach 60 points IMO.

I wouldn't be shocked to see Horcoff have a great start to the season if the Oilers don't acquire a top 6 centerman to replace him. He's right with Forsberg for the lead in points over in Sweden and is actually outplaying guys like Brenden Morrison. I'd look for him to build on his 40 points from last year...

Hopefully, Jani Rita. Very far from making it though.
I think David Legwand is going to make it.
