Selanne, Lindros and Forsberg had huge impacts in their Rookie seasons. They scored more than 1 pt per game. Since those guys nobody was able to put such great numbers like Lindros. I know, it has lot changed in the game... harder defense, hits etc.
We have with Ovechkin and Crosby two very highly touted players. Many scouts predict those two a great future in the NHL and compare they already with former Hall of Famers like Dionne, Gretzky etc.
Are they able to put in their "Rookie-Season" such great numbers (over 1 pt per game), like Lindros did or has the game too much changed???
