In a few years, who do you think will be more productive offensively?
definetly Erik Staal
I'm not sure he means Eric. I think he means Mark.
yeah, I know
in other news, is it Eric or Erik?
ps. it's marc
I am sure he means Marc. Shea Weber will outscore Staal in my opinion. I believe Weber is superior to Staal in all facets of the game. Just so all you NYR fans don'y jump all over me, I think Weber is better then Bourdon too (I am a Canuck fan).
Weber is severely underated on these board, probably because he wasn't:
A) A High pick
B) Played Junior in the East
C) And was drafted by a team with a low fanbase on this website.
I think Weber compares very nicely to Dion Phaneuf, although with a little bit lower of a ceiling. Possess a great slapshot, hits well, and is good defensively. Perfect match in my opinion.
Weber by far.
I do not belive Staal has much in the way of offensive upside at the nhl level.
I would be shocked if Staal doesn't win the Art Ross by his sophomore year.
In the 2005 WJC, Weber impressed me more then Phaneuf. I loved his physical game and defensive presence. That being said, Staal was fantastic in the WJC last year. Both will be amazing defenseman, but I would give a slight edge to Staal when it comes to offense.
hmmm Staal isnt an offensive dman. Weber will probably get more points then Staal. Staal is the Ohlund/Foote type of DMAN. so yea. Not a great comparison. Its like comparing Regher to Redden for offensive numbers.
Wow, 2 years ago, I read the same things about Weber.
Well then you were reading idiotic thoughts.
