IMO, it will be Kovalchuk. That's just based on the pure talent, ethic, and desire I see inside.

However, most of these answers are influenced by current trends, which is unfortunate. Last year, Heatley and Thornton were having monster years, thus they were the ones deemed to dominate. This year, Heatley is out, Thornton isn't playing so well, but Kovalchuk is. So now he's the favorite. It will change again next year.

It's the hype machine in full force, and it will always be around.

All three will be utterly amazing, no two ways about it. It will be a type of "pick your poison" situation; just depends on your wants and your needs, but you can't go wrong with any three. Personally, I'm surprised it's this lopsided, but again, what is happening presently will alter the results drastically.
