    Group A. I like the defense pair a lot more than group B. The forwards are close, probably in B's favour. Ehlers/Nylander is close to a wash for me.

    Give me group A but slightly. The defensive pairs is the deciding factor. Offense is too close to call.

    If Ekblad and Provorov switched places, would you’ve still chosen A?

    Ek isn't the problem, RR is.

    A because of the Dmen
    B does have the better Centre though.

    I understand. Personally, Provorov is the best of the group. Had he been paired with Risto on team B, would it have changed your vote?

    Would probably switch my vote to group B if that's the case for the same reasons but it would be an even closer split since I see Parayko as better than RR and Ekblad.

    It would cemented it where it was. I saw it as a wash for Colton or Ek being #1. Provo could be #1, but his youth colours the argument a bit.

    Point is the best one here imo and Barkov is a close 2nd, but Ristolainen is the worst by a lot and Ekblad is arguably the 2nd worst.

    Point>Aho
    Barkov>>Draisaitl
    Marner>>>>>>Rantanen
    Ekblad<<<<<<Provorov
    Ristolainen<<<<<<<<Parayko
    Nylander<=Ehlers

    I’ll take first group

    Ristolainen sinks that d pair.

    A has slightly better offense and a much much better defense.

    Marner is good and all but he really isn't better than Rantanen.

    Oh never mind. Checked the user name. Easily dismissed evaluation then.

    You may disagree with me but disregarding analysis due to who is doing it is rather fallacious

    Considering you irrationally hate Rantanen who was better than Marner by miles last season and is better than him this season season as well, yeah, it is easy to dismiss your opinion. A ton of greater than signs is hardly an analysis.

    Marner has much better 5v5 primary scoring rates even this season and the defensive gap is large. I don’t irrationally hate Rantanen he is just super overrated.

    So 5v5 primary scoring rates...the end all be all... lol. Yeah...no to this one. What a silly hill to die on. I'll take the guy that makes MacKinnon look even better vs the guy that thrives off of Matthews.

    Rantanen out produces Marner greatly and the defensive gap is really isn't all that large.

    Marner doesn’t even play with Matthews what are you talking about? And looking at scoring rates last year Rantanen’s cuts in half away from Mack while Mack’s only drops about 10%.
