If there is an opposite to this thread Samsonov is the guy for it. His best year may well have been his rookie year. Do you remember when Samsonov was considered to be the better future player? Wow..............how quickly we can get excited over things.

I think 00-01, 01-02, and 02-03 Samsonov was playing the best hockey of his career. Especially 02-03. However, he went down with a wrist injury in Calgary and missed most of the season. He was all set to become a great player in the NHL, but since that injury he has never been the same.

I don't really want to defend Thornton, but he was on the 4th line and barely played any minutes his first year, they brought him along very slowly, it really was not bad play by him, it was that they didn't really play him.
