Simple question, who is the better defensive prospect: Lashoff or Stuart.
Lashoff hands down
No, its not "hands down." I recognize Stuart doesn't have the offensive upside Lashoff does, but there are few defensemen in all of hockey that are as mean and tenacious as Stuart is. He's also a fine skater and has underrated passing ability. I think he'll be a stud for Boston for years to come.
They both play a different style. Lashoff is solid defensively, and also has alot of offensive upside. he has better puck skills, and you can use him on the power play. stuart is a defensive defenseman, hes tough as nails, and a real good shut down guy. i think they are both great prospects that fill 2 different needs.
