I know JT has been mentioned a number of times already, but he is definitely the one that sticks out most for me in the entire league. He is absolutely dominating the Swiss league right now (I know, lesser competition) without any NHLer linemates (excluding Streit on defense). He doesn't seem to be slowing down one bit in terms of development and I have a feeling he'll break the 90 point mark when there is a full season and it wouldn't necessarily surprise me to see him pass 100. The most impressive thing about JT though is that he can take sub par linemates who barely pass as 1st liners and make them appear to be legitimate 1st liners. Of course I give credit to guys like Matt Moulson, who is certainly talented at what he does (getting goals), but if you watch the Isles on a game to game basis you realize that JT truly does elevate the game of anybody he plays with which only speaks to how great of a player he currently is and will be in the future.

100 point season for JT over 82 games would be amazing I am a believer, that's for sure.

Eberle will have a great season IMO.


Edit: Agreed on Tavares as well.

Agreed. Both these guys are playing very well in the A, while averaging 3-4 shots a night.

Unfortunately, they probably wont get much ice time behind Giroux and Briere

If he doesn't retire and can find a job I think Sergei Samsonov will be this lock-out's Selanne, come back completely healthy and reinvigorate his career.

Gaborik will score at will.

E. Staal, Seguin, Cammalleri

Matt Duchene.

And... the Oilers' top line.

I think Crosby will continue with his high ppg pace and hopefully not get injured again.

He shot 2.8% over his career average, which is much smaller than a guy like Perry or Kesler in their monster years, but almost 3% is big when you're talking about 300 shots.

Put it this way: if he happens to shoot 2.8% UNDER his current career average next year, he'd score ~43 goals instead of 60.

I bet that happens in the next 3-5 years and it won't be long until we see a "Stamkos on the decline" thread..

Totally agree and I'd put Tavares with Toews

Rick Nash needs a mention in this thread. Very curious how he does with a change of scenery and a better team.

Lol, Subban ahead of Karlsson. I've seen this before.

Haha, gotta laugh at all the people choosing kids, who are supposedly going to burst out with 50-60 more points out of nowhere. There are going to be a lot of disappointed faces when people realize that their prospect isn't doubling his points every single season, and may have actually *gasp* hit his potential.

The obvious choice is Crosby. The second obvious choice is Malkin. Maybe Stamkos.

I'll give a shout out to Tavares because he is really the only youngster that has a shot in hell, but even with him, I highly doubt it.
