As for two others, I'll get back to you.

well if it does happen dont be tooo mad the bruins did give you one of your best offensive players....

i personally think the bruins won this trade but who knows what the future holds if i were a leaf fan id be more concerned about goaltending and the centre position hopefully kadri can bring some of that ahl success up to the nhl

Is it your contention that Stamkos is NOT a perennial Maurice Richard Contender? He has won the award in 2 of the last 3 seasons and came in 2nd in the season in between.

I just want to see a healthy Crosby for a full 82 games. Like someone else mentioned earlier, I think 150pts is doable.

Seriously, after 3 lockouts we haven't learned a thing.

I'll take the guy who tore it up the previous 2 times...Gary Bettman!

For Detroit at least I can see Henrik Zetterberg play even better. Especially if the chemistry with Damien Brunner carries over

He's been mentioned about 4 or 5 times already lol.

But I agree, Stamkos will be one, Crosby another. I have a feeling he'll have close to 150 points in a single season.

I think that both Hall(playing without injury) And Seguin are both going to take that next step into being elite stars in this league. The third year is usually a big year for these types of players.
I also hope that tuukka rask has a strong year, as hes been licking at that starting job for a while now. If he can stay healthy there is no doubt hes a top 5-10 goalie in the league.

And hopefully next season as a 26 year old he will get a shot.

The game is getting younger and younger though so we shall see.

It really shows how many of you guys just pull names out of thin air.
When there's no hockey, that's what happens, we just talk about what could happen. I don't think that's wrong.

For next season, here's who I think will be really, really good:
Taylor Hall, Tyler Seguin, Subban, Evander Kane, Tavares and Kopitar.

He has yet to hit 130 Pts in a full season, he will be nowhere 150 Pts, that is something you can bank on.

No one in the NHL today is capable of 140 Pts let alone 150 Pts.

We've all been waiting for Crosby to hit 140 Pts (some even claiming this was going to be his average after his sophomore season) and other than that second season in the NHL he has yet to get more than 110 Pts. The game isn't getting any more open and usually players peak statistically in the early 20's. He will be 26 next season and history usually tells us that your statistical peak is behind you at age 26.

It's much easier to average 1.65 PPG in 20 or 41 game stretches; trying to pull that off over an entire season is much harder. A player is bound to hit a slump or two, get injured, run into hot goaltenders. Not even Malkin (who I think is a more talented player than Crosby is) has what it takes to pull off a 120 + Pts season in today's NHL. The last time a player averaged over 1.60 PPG in over 60 games or more in the same season was 1995-96. I just don't see anyone doing it in today's game.

The game at its most open could resemble more the 2005-06 season and if that's any indication, two players had 123 and 125 Pts respectively and everyone else had less than 110 Pts. For Crosby to hit 140-150 Pts that would mean that he would win the Art Ross by 20-30 Pts, sorry but that's not going to happen.

The next big hit could be Crosby's last in the NHL; just saying.
