I hope that was sarcastic but I gotta admit Bourdon is pretty overrated here.

That "little vampire" named Daniel Briere? Idk, that stood out at me too and I laughed for some reason, I could see the physical comparison to a degree.

Lol, then the poster goes on to state that he has his influence over everyone.

neither zetterberg or Datsyuk are something special. They're good players, but hardly star players.

We're talking "worst-case scenario" here, not "minorly disappointing scenario".

The worst-case scenario for every player is pretty flat: outright bust.

Although we could change it to: worst-case scenario without busting. Though, even as such, your projection of Backstrom to be a Zetterberg at the very worst is still rather ludicrous.

That may also be a fair comparison but from what I've seen and heard Little plays with a lot of heart and adds some grit to his game as well (just like Saku).

why are you just complaining at me? Several other posters said a worst case scenario similar to Zetterberg. Why am I the only one who should get jumped on?

I see worst case ohlund, I see jovaniski, i see lemiuex, i see Pavel Datsyuk, I see linden etc

Then your commect of "neither zetterberg or Datsyuk are something special. They're good players, but hardly star players."
does not stick with the topic, either you agree with those worst case scenarios or that commect is not necessary.

Matt Corrente, I don't know exactly what his top end potential is but he is very similar to Mike Green for Washington that has me very excited.

Like what some people are saying here, the worst case scenario for any prospect is flat out bust. Of course, a selected few like Jordan Staal, Anze Kopitar, Alex Radulov etc are a little different because they are already playing (and excelling) in the league. That doesn't mean they are guaranteed to succeed long term - they can still bust after a good rookie campaign a la Alexandre Daigle.

With Jordan, I see his best case scenario as a mix between Keith Primeau and Jason Arnott. And that's a flattering projection for him. At worst, naturally, he could bust.

I am sorry but Backstrom is easily the best player out of the 2006 prospect draft whether you like it or not.
Dude...... seriously....... DUDE!!!!!!

More like...
Best case: JS Giguere
Worst case: Jamie Storr (by default since we are talking about a Kings' goaltending prospect)

Could you elaborate and/or give a better comparison?

Anyways, I just really wanted to get that Jamie Storr reference in there.
