    If you were to build a team around one of these 2 players who would you pick ? Debating this with a friend of mine and would like to see some good takes on this.

    I'll take Point. He gels extremely well with our group.

    I think it really depends on the team and what their needs are. Barzal and Point are played in different scenarios and systems so it's tough. Homer vote for Barzal.

    They're both really friggin good and you just can't go wrong. I'd like to see what Barzal could do playing with Kucherov and Palat though in a more aggressive system... Probably take Barzal

    If Isles can knock off Boston tonight, the ECF will be interesting. I thought that Point showed Barzal up last year... Barzal is ultra competitive, he is just hitting a groove and playing with tons of confidence.

    I like both players but do wish Barzal drove the middle and crashed the net as much as Point does.

    Barzal is a perimeter player and primarily a set up guy.

    Point plays 200 feet, gets to the dirty areas, checks as well as he scores, and is a complete offensive player (goalscoring and passing).

    Point all day.

    Yeah, Point.

    Hard to argue with his playoff track record. Maybe Barzal can do better and maybe he can't - but Point's proven it. Smythe worthy run last year, and stepping up again this year

    Both great young players. I'd lean toward Point because I think his ability to produce offense in the dirty areas more consistently add more value. He's also a better goal scorer.

    Point by a landslide.

    Point has proven time and time again that he can perform and come through in big moments.

    I don't think Barzal would do a better job on that line than Point because what Point brings I think better complements what Kucherov does. Point's the speedy guy who'll go to the net and get open to take shots. Barzal plays more of a perimeter passing game, so who is going to be the one driving the net? That's not Kucherov's game.

    I'm one of the biggest Barzal fans out there but I take Point

    Now having said that, if Barzal was on Tampa and playing with that extreme high offense, there is potential his numbers are thru the roof

    No wrong answer. I’m an isles fan so I won’t pick because biased.

    I will say that I absolutely love everything about Point. My style of player. Similar to Bergeron. I love guys who are great defensively and highly skilled offensively.

    Barzal jumps off the screen, Point jumps off the score sheet.

    Both are fantastic, but it’s Point for me.

    I'm a nice guy. I'll let you choose and I'll take who's left.

    Ok that wasn’t my point though. Barzal’s linemates are considerably less talented than Point’s is the point. Not how they fit with those particular skill sets. Also Trotz’ system absolutely hinders Barzal’s point production.

    If I'm TBL I wouldn't mess with a winning formula but I love everything about Matty Barzal. Absolute warrior.

    Because NBC only talks about Barzal, I'll choose Barzal :sarcasm:

    Hard to say… I would love to see Point and Barzal switch teams/teammates/coaching systems.

    I lean towards Point because he seems to be a bit more gritty and clutch, but Barzal is a sicko in his own right.

    Thread. Point is the real deal in the playoffs. No questions asked.

    It's a fair comparison, but Point for me. His game just keeps growing on me. I would have said Barzal last year.

    For me these two and Aho are all in the same tier.

    Both would be an absolute dream for my team. Probably Point by a hair.

    The Flames could really use a sniper, so it's gotta be Point. Plus, he's a Calgary boy!

    Pelech's my favorite player but Barzal's right behind him.

    Point, EASILY.
