    Scheifele simply because of the extra years.

    Gotta echo others, in that i'd take those extra years of Scheifele.

    Scheifele easily. Better contract and better player.

    Scheifele probably has the best contract in the league.

    Barkov is the better player but Scheifele's term evens things up for sure.

    Barkov still has a fair bit to prove before this is true.

    Barkov is better, younger, and cheaper.

    How is this even a question?

    Maybe because Barkov isn't better. Poll results heavily favour Scheifele as a result.

    Barkov is the better player, but he's due for a big raise 2 years before Scheifele.

    Barkov's better IMO but not by much and that contract length for Scheifele is better.

    I think it can go either way on them, but I don't see why Barkov has to prove himself. He's been an elite player for longer than Scheifele

    As most posts point out, they heavily favour him due to the length of the deal.

    Its not like every voter has posted in this thread. I'm pretty sure Scheifele is getting more votes because he's the better player with the better contract.

    Anyone who wants to argue against this can call me when Barkov has a 14 goal in 17 game playoff performance.

    I think if it was a question of better player it would be fairly evenly split. The playoffs were a big point in his favour but still just a 17 game sample.

    Barkov. Similiar offensive production, but imo the Selke level defensive play makes up for the extra years.

    I prefer Barkov as a player but those 2 extra years on the cheap get Scheifele my vote.

    I think Scheifele is better too, but you can't say AINEC. Actually it is pretty close.

    The better contract is Scheifele, because it is an extra two years.

    As for players, I'm taking Barkov, but it is close.
