    Taken one pick apart, it's interesting to revisit this towards the end of their respective second seasons. The consensus is that Werenski had the better rookie year, but Provorov seems to have quite clearly had the better sophomore season, even beating Werenski on points.

    Who do you take going forward?

    Not that it'll matter to anyone, but Werenski has been playing injured for a long time this season. Hense his drop in production (as the rest of the team kind of sucks too) after being up there for defensive points in November or so.

    I'm thinking that both teams are very, very, very happy with each player. And with that Devils picked Zacha instead those two.

    End of story.

    I really want to know what this injury is and what kind of surgery/recovery is needed because his play has been so frustrating lately but we all know he isnt his usual self

    Provorov has been better at every stage of development and career.

    Ahh, I stand corrected... this explains a lot, he looks off. Far less explosive

    Yeah we've noted tons of times where his effort wasnt the same getting back after pinching or his skating wasnt quite right. But at the same time he almost seems more reluctant to shoot so I have no idea what it is and likely wont know until after the season

    Werenski, I thought the poll results would be closer

    did not expect Provorov to lead with 80% wow

    Provorov has already overtaken Werenski and will so every year now going forward...Werenski had a good 1 year run against Provorov and now can battle lower tiered blueliners where he belongs.

    I find it funny how bi-polar this page is and it really shows how much herd mentality and stat watching goes into voting. Before the season the opinion was like 60-40 in favor of Werenski which means a lot of the same people changed their opinion in a matter of a few months. Flyers fans said Provorov would blow up when he didn't have to play with AMac anymore and that's exactly what happened. I prefer a defenseman like Provorov myself, especially since we already have Ghost but most sane Flyers and Jackets fans agreed that this is really close and on any given year one could be better than the other. I guess the score is tied 1-1 between these two right now.

    I don’t know if I’d use the word funny, but you’re right... It’s tough to take a very large number of people here seriously.

    I like Provorov a whole lot he really impresses me every time I watch him play and his shot is just a rocket. Really wish we had him here in Dallas but oh well I would take him over Werenski but it's close
