Brett Sterling potential

Having watched Sterling for a few years now, I still haven't been able to decide how he will pan out in the NHL. He has all the tools, IMO, to be a top liner in the NHL, yet I don't see many people talking about him.

What are your expections for him?

Top line winger who will pick up junk in the crease.

With Hossa or Ilya on one of his wings he will not have to worry about creating his own shot, which I think will be one of his weaknesses in the NHL.

He could be an AHL tweener or a 30 goal scorer. No one in the AHL is better than him at finding the quiet areas near the goal and then exploiting them. Find an NHL caliber creative play maker and put them together on the power play and he could be a goal scoring machine. He's small but very good in traffic because of his exceptional lower body strength..He's also a pest out there and gets under the oppositions skin without being dirty.

Haydar has inflated his stats though that's for sure.

What are Haydars chances of making the team, his point totals suggest he would be a welcome addition to Kovalchuks line.

AHL point totals mean nothing in the NHL because the defense and goaltending is comparably sloppy and inconsistent.

Look up the yearly scoring leaders of the AHL...they didn't become NHL scorers.

From what I've seen with Haydar with the Thrashers is a problem: not even offense to be on the top two lines, not enough size, toughness or speed to be on the bottom two lines.

Brett Sterling and Brett Hull are look-a-likes:

Could that be a positive sign?

I'd take a 23yr old Brett Hull over almost any hockey player

I've thought about this a bit...and I think we should bring up these three players...

Sterling-Krog-Haydar

Use them as our 3rd or 4th line. They've had great chemistry in the AHL, and I find it hard to believe that they'd lose that chemistry with a move to the NHL. Also, Krog and Haydar's contracts are both one way in 07/08.
