    Regardless of who comes back if they were traded who would be a bigger loss in your opinion?

    Stone.

    Makes those around him better. Seems to be a huge part of the teams new positive culture change.

    With that said, his foot speed makes me apprehensive about a 7-8 year deal. It's also not a big gap on the ice. In some ways, maybe Duchene as a C is more valuable on the ice. It's a tough call for me to make.

    Duchene plays the more important position but Stone is better and more valuable to this team, especially seeing as he's a mentor to Tkachuk.

    Pretty much this. I still voted Duchene though due to our lack of depth at center. If I had more confidence in Brown being capable to step in as #1/2C i would go with Stone for sure. Seems 50/50 Brown will be that guy.

    It's coming to the point where you wonder if Chlapik will overtake Brown by the end of the season.

    I think they are both big losses. I think Stone more consistently impacts a game in multiple ways and is easier to play with. Duchene is really highly skilled, can generate offense and zone time and is our best C by a fair margin.

    Stone. Hands down. He stays, he's the next captain.

    I'd say about equal but would go with Duchene because of his position and the lack of anybody remotely capable of filling that 1C spot.

    Stone is the better player, but Duchene may very well be more important.

    Honestly, I'm starting to get to the point where I'm wary about extending either one though.

    Stone right now, but I’d be lying if I said his skating and injuries don’t scare me a bit.

    Stone long and short there is really no comparison. One is a top 5 player in his position and one is not.

    The definitive ranking of the NHL’s top 20 right wingers over three seasons - Sportsnet.ca

    Number 4 ranked RW in the NHL and number 1 defensive winger by a long shot.

    What?.... If you cant extend a top player in the NHL at 26 whats the point in even trying to compete?

    He is already a better prospect. Had a way better D + 1 year, is way more dedicated and a much better skater while playing with an edge.

    Saying Duchene because I think we are utterly ****ed at C if he leaves.

    It's Stone easily.

    He's a much more steady player. You know exactly what he brings and he's a cerebral player. Even if his skating isn't as good he will still be an effective player regardless because of his anticipation, vision and ability to stretch the ice with his passes.

    Duchene is the type of player who goes hot and cold. His skating his better but he isn't as smart as Stone with the puck. He makes a lot of high intensity plays that lead to a lot of points when he's hot but when he goes on one of his cold streaks he seems to just make bad decisions with the puck on top of not producing.

    His skating doesn't concern me that much especially for the next 5 years but I have to admit he seems to be often injured.

    (Insert Karlsson statement here)

    All kidding aside, I'm just not sure Stone is the guy I want the team to invest ~$65+ million because of a variety of different reasons. I obviously won't be disappointed if he stays though, guy is inarguably a fantastic player and top end winger in the game right now.

    Bobby Ryan would be the biggest loss

    Duchene.

    This team would crumble without a good center

    Stone is a tier above Duchene.

    One of the best wingers in the league vs. a 1B/2A center.

    Not a hard decision.

    Duchene.

    Purely because our depth at C is pretty diabolical...

    Haha. Duchene is not a 2nd line center.

    I think they are both gone.

    It would be interesting to see their production levels at the 20 game mark.
