Depends on your scoring system but in most all pools I would choose Ovechkin. I have him and Thorton getting around the same amount of points, but Ovechkin will get you more goals, shots but a worse +/-. If its strictly points, weighted equally, then you might as well flip a coin between him and Thorton. IMHO, Jagr will not be quite as spectacular this year as he was last year. He lost two of his Chek mates Ruchinsky and Sykora. New York was also lucky in that their two glass men Straka and Nylander were able to stay relativly healthy, something that likley will not happen again. Sure, they signed Shannahan, but he is still an unknown as to how well he will perform in NY and the lockout was more responcible for his play than anything else.
