You're right though, nothing is guaranteed.
I feel like ever since his death his stock has gone up. I remember there were questions in his season after we drafted him. IIRC he didn't have a super consistent WJC either (though I thought I remembered him winning player of the game once, or maybe that was Sangs).

For some people, sure. That's how people wanted Alexei to be remembered, as a future All Star and elite Ranger who was taken from us too soon. But I do think that would've been the case. Unfortunately, we'll never know.

Maybe it's terrible, but part of me hopes he would have busted. Losing a guy that could have been an All Star is painful on many levels (not only hockey related).

Only a matter of time before some deranged Leafs fan starts a "Scrivens for Vezina" thread on the main boards.

Then the Leafs obviously have two Vezina candidates in net. They might have to share the award between themselves this year.

I wonder if they would trade those two amazing goalies for Henrik and Marty. We would probably have to add though...

Nah but seriously, I don't know how many scouts were fooled by him or if it was just Columbus (and some don't always seem to be aware that Filatov actually did drop to 6 in a somewhat half weak draft; great players were picked after him but there were like what, 15 busts as big as him in that first round), but the writing was on the wall with this kid.

This is what I wrote of him before he even started to struggle in CBJ (I am not sure if he even had played in the NHL at the time):

Anyway, that was a bit OT, Filatov really needs to pin down allot of things before he can start contributing in the NHL.
There were all kind of concerns as regards Cherepanov. But his last season Cherepanov really broke through, put it all together, and played extremely well in the KHL. I made several posts with that exact same content before his accident, and I was pretty suspect of Chere's play before that season.

And I take a player type like Cherepanov 10 out of 10 times over a Filatov. Cherepanov had like the instincts of Brad Richards and the physical ability of say Voracek. Fila is and was a extreme breakaway floater. He could look like Bure II against weaker competition -- but there is extremely little room for a player like that in the NHL. He isn't 75% as talented as Gabby, but exactly the same player type. And Gabby disappears for long stretches as it is. People always go after a player like Filatov's honor and tear appart his attitude, which also was horrible in this case, but he just did not have the conditions to succed before he got to the NHL and when you play x games and realize that you have no business in the league you are playing, its also very easy to loose controll of your attitude so to speak. Had Fila come in and scored 35 goals his rookie year, for all we know he could have been a perfect citizen in CBJ.

Put on the Hawks game if you want to see an actual powerplay.

Both of their goals in this game are goals you will not see the Rangers score.

I thought you were commenting on Hossa's power play goal until I saw his awesome second goal and knew you must have been referring to that.

When I watch the Blackhawks it's like I'm watching a different sport than the one the Rangers play.

Yea they are now my favorite Western Conference Team and my second favorite team in general. I only started watching them the beginning of this season though because I got GCL for the first time but it was definitely a good time to start watching them.
