Tarasenko has been the run away winner for the past three seasons. Difference being now he's actually in the NHL.


Regardless, the CORRECT answer is Komarov.

Lots of people go with the early flash, but I'll go with the guy who will still be playing quality minutes when Tarasenko's one dimensional game is exposed.

I watched the Oilers last night, and that Justin Schultz is the real deal. In his first NHL game he was already controlling the pace, quarterbacking the pp, and playing solid defense. That kid is a superstar in waiting.

I am not sure I have ever been as impressed by a rookie's first game in my 40 years of watching NHL hockey.

At the end of the year, he will be standing head and shoulders above all other rookies.

As a fan with no horses in the race, I'd put my money on Tarasenko. Guys like Yakupov have a shot but lets be real here, guys who have more experience have the edge. That's just the reality, it's an advantage.

This. Barring injury, I think it's going to be Tarasenko or Schultz.

Did HF amuse you when J. Schultz was the "run-away winner" with 0 games in?

You guys need to watch Justin Schultz. The kid is so smooth and confident. He was playing the puck behind Luongo on his first NHL shift. He knows when to pinch and when to stay back. As another poster said. He could have easily had 2 goalst if it wasn't for Luongo. Schultz in a landslide.

Far from it actually. Rarely did I see a calder poll with Schultz leading the counts actually, if you're basing this of Bob Mackenzie's opinion I guess you are correct.

Taresenko.

And I had him as my pick a long time ago, so it's not as if my opinion changes because of how good Taresenko has been.

HFBoards has always been an unsophisticated hypetrain in some form or other. First overall pick? Better believe he's going to get the Calder the following season. Has a good game? Better believe he's going to get the Calder the following season. Two game scoreless streak? Full-out bust.

Also, every prospect is comparable to Datsyuk somehow.

I think I have only seen Yakupov, Schultz and Hamilton so far and Hamilton is the guy out of those so far.

Agreed. Tarasenko has been dominant at the pro level for two seasons now. Of course he's going to have an edge up on the competition.

Though 5 points in his first 2 games is pretty exciting for Blues' fans.

What exactly is the one dimension you speak of?

Yeah how silly to base predictions on things that have happened. Should be based on draft order.

He was drafted in the teens so there is no way he can win the calder...

People need to realized that this kid dominated the KHL the last 2 years...He is not going to be some flash in the pan...He will be a first line player who I think is a PPG player.

Did I say this?

So according to you we are better off by judging players off two games played.

If Schultz can contain the Sedins, he can contain pretty much anyone.

Forwards have to have extremely down years for a d-man to win the calder which is a shame but he is a longshot no matter how good he plays D...Now if he puts up big points then he could but once again that is rare for a rookie D man although he is older so that can only help him.
