    Hall = Gaudreau
    Crosby < McDavid
    Kucherov > Pastrnak

    Hedman > Josi
    Doughty < Karlsson

    As great as they are, I see Pastrnak and Josi as the clear weak links.

    Now or peak is probably good to state?

    I pick the Crosby team either way though.

    Team Crosby. Those players know what it takes to win a series.

    They are fairly even but I'd rather have McDavid over Crosby at this stage in their careers so McDavid's team.

    Hedman - Doughty is what tips the scales

    Honestly I would still take the McDavid group, Gaudreau is quite clearly better than Hall, same with McDavid over Crosby even though he hasn't had the chance to really prove it in the playoffs and we know how great Karlsson and Pastrnak have been. Put all those players with McDavid and goals would be scored at will regardless of the opposition.

    Pasta is the weakest link, also including Josi, it’s too big of a gap for McDavid to make up by himself

    Switch out Pasta for say Patty Kane and this becomes a lot closer. Josi and Pastrnak are the two weakest links.

    Hall is best as a one man show.

    McDavid has almost zero experience in playoffs.

    While, Kucherov - 4th in gpg, 6th in ppg
    Crosby - 5th in gpg, 1st in ppg
    Active NHL Players - Playoff Goals per Game Leaders

    That's gonna be easy 4-0 win for squad #1.

    To make it fair squad #2 need wingers like Ovechkin and Kane and a better D-man than Josi.

    Kucherov is a perennial choker plus he was born in Maypok. And legend says that the local Tatar population cursed every ethnic Russian that was ever born there. I’m going team 2 the one without the cursed easterling
