I think Hansen will breakout. He's got a 20 goal season in him, and if something happens to Burrows I could see him pot 25 playing with the Sedins. Right handed, gritty forward who is the Canucks best player ontop of the crease, watchout.

There's a few defencemen like Gudbrandson, Hedman and a bunch of the Leafs big defencemen who have been in the league for a season or two and are probably on the cusp of having a nice 40 point season.

What was MG's mistake: taking Hogson with the 10th overall pick (his dad was always his dad) or trading him for Kassian? Those who put that list together say trading him obviously.

I think foul words are gonna have a breakout season when the lockout starts.

8. Zack Kassian


TBH I don't think Kassian will "break out" this year as such. He WILL have a monster year in a season or two barring grievous injury.

This makes no sense since he already plays with the Sedins regularly and has had multiple 20+ goal seasons..

Read the quote again, he's talking about if Burrows got injured it could cause Hansen to get more playing time with the Sedin's..

Decent list. Here's who I can see breaking out:

1) John Tavares (he'll step into super stardom this season)
2) Brandon Sutter
3) Erik Gudbranson
4) Zack Kassian
5) Jordan Staal (will thrive in top six minutes)
6) Andrew Shaw
7) Tuukka Rask

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Gino Odjick said one of the biggest mistakes not the biggest... Anyways watch Duchene to have a big year


You will be missed.
