In all the replies I read, the highest anyonne had him was 4th, after that 5th and then I think 9th or 10th.
Heck, some of you didn't even have him listed! (One of you also forgot Malkin
I would. Love to revisit this in 3 seasons and take a look at the standings and see who was closest
Writing from my blackberry (yes I still have one!) So my prediction will be forthcoming and I will let you know now that he won't be lower than 2nd.
Just my 2c
I didnt list him in my top 15 because I dont see him getting back to that point again. The skill level is there (now, but is declining) but his problem isnt the skill. His problem is the attitude. He just doesnt seem to want to compete the way he used to. If you think this is what Adam Oates will bring to the table, all the power to ya. I have my doubts and there's too many other skilled players with more heart and desire to place in my top 15, five years from now. Until he does something to prove me wrong, I will stick with him NOT being in the top 15 scorers, next year or any other year going forward.
Thats the fun part of doing these, it's simply our own opinion. This just happens to be mine.
