More points in their respective NHL careers?
Thanks in advance
I definately like Olesz better - he has more potential than Perry and has more of a chance of reaching it IMO.
I like Olesz much more because i think heÂ´s the more complete player who can play on scoring- and checkinglines and on the PP and PK. HeÂ´s also able to play center and LW.
Their stats are comparable this season but I can imagine that Perry will put up some more points in the future than Olesz. But that might be not enough to challenge with OleszÂ´s strong offensive and devensive play and his serviceability to play nearly in any situation and on any forward position.
Here is a very suitably clip for his potential and two-way-play from NHL.com
I'm pretty high on Olesz, hes great defensively and has some good offense.
Perry will put up more points then him throughout his career IMO.
Having seen Olesz a lot this year -- this kid is a keeper. The Panthers have had some good players come in from juniors over the years (Horton, Weiss, Bouwmeester) and Olesz has easily been the most complete, composed of them all. He plays like he is 27.
He has been used primarily on the PK because he is such a complete defensive player who always has that breakaway threat. At the beginning of the year, if he had finishers on his line, he would have had 1 or 2 assists per game because he loves to hold onto the puck and create chances.
I think Perry will score more than Olesz - not by much though.
However, Olesz will be a far better and more valuable player.
