    Rantanen. Better offensively (hands, shot, vision, passing) and defensively. Wheeler is slightly better skater.

    I'm definitely in the minorities here but I prefer wheeler. Rantanen is off to a wicked to start, but I don't expect it to maintain.

    Wheeler scored 91 last year while being good defensively.

    Both Phenomenal talents and were lucky to have both of these stars in this league. Really close, mostly personal preference here.

    Going forward easily rants

    105 points in the last 93 or something.

    Rants seems like the more consistent player, both can produce elite offensive numbers.

    For this season it’s close. I’d probably pick Rantanen but you can’t go wrong with either.

    This is worse than saying Scheifele is better than Matthews AINEC.

    But I thought Jets and Oilers fans say that Scheifele is better than Matthews.

    Matthews is slightly better than Scheifele. But my point is that saying that Rantanen is better than wheeler ainec is ridiculous. Leaf fans always talk about leaf haters ( and im not denying their existence). But You’re being a jet hater with a post like that.

    Mikko just turned 21 last week. Wheeler is almost 33. Nothing else to argue. Anyone with a brain takes Mikko.

    Wheeler turns 33 in 10 months.
    The poll asks who is the better player. Not who is better going forward. Wheeler was definitely better last year. So far in 12 Games this year Mikko taken his game to another level while Wheeler hasn’t been great. What evidence is there to backup that Rantanen is the far better player?

    I like Mikko’s game better. It appears that 81% of the poll does as well.

    For this season, it's Rantanen AINEC.

    Wheeler has been one of Jet's worst players
