Possibly Hamilton, Taransenko, Yakupov, and Kuznetsov. Not saying I would, but possibly. Larsson too if you can count hin.

Yea guys like RNH, Patrick Kane, Giroux, Briere, Ray Whitney, and Karlsson are definitely not able to handle the rigors of the NHL.
Please tell me how you just came up with that list...

For me it's really down to RNH vs. Yakupov, and personally I'd side with RNH. If we include players eligible for the 2013 draft, it gets more interesting: RNH or MacKinnon?
I see Kuznetsov coming to the NHL after his contract in 2 years or whenever it ends. If so, I definitely take Kuznetsov easily.

No because he's the better player and being biased is different from actually watching him play and knowing how good he is rather than basing his skill level off of not wanting to come to the NHL

A capitals fan saying kuznetsovs a better player? Sounds pretty biased to me, considering 99% of teams would take RNH over him easily.

Yes. Kuznetov and Tarasenko off the top of my head.

One might argue that Skinner's rookie season was better if you include 18 year olds not drafted first overall though.
If you really want to get technical then you could argue that being born in the January to August range is actually a benefit to RNH.

Coming from me,a caps fan, who has actually seen what he can do in the KHL rather than just assuming RNH is better because you've seen him play half a season in the NHL,and it's just my honest opinion that Kuznetsov is better than RNH. Also, I would absolutely love to hear how you came up with those statistics about 99% of teams.

Offtopic, but I don't think Kuznetsov is called Sasha, that's a nick for Alexander.

He's called Zenia. (Zjenja in Swedish )

An Oilers' fan saying RNH's a better player? Sounds pretty biased to me.

But RNH is better (when healthy) and will be in the NHL while Kuznetsov won't. So...

There's really no evidence that RNH is a better NHL player since Kuznetsov hasn't played in the NHL yet. He's a really, really talented player though. He, Tarasenko, and Yakupov are the only 3 prospects I think you could make a case for over RNH. Personally, I'd still take RNH because he's a center and has played in the NHL already, but I wouldn't be surprised if any of those 3 established themselves as being as good or better than him.

I would take RNH first
Landeskog is a close second
then yakupov 3rd

Hamilton and Tarasenko are close but a step below the other guys

Yea you could make a case for them, I just don't see it happening. Kuznetsov would have to put up crazy numbers to be on RNH's level.

So do you think Kuznetsov would have put up RNH numbers as a 18 year old rookie?

The NHL is the best league in the world for a reason, and RNH was dominating in his first season.

As for the last part, any GM in the league would be stupid not to take RNH over a guy that COULD be better, and especially one that has a high chance for the russian factor attached to him.

Lets wait and see how he does in the NHL first. If he ever comes to the NHL.

Landeskog wasn't eligible for this since it says under 82 GP.
