Would you rather Brayden Schenn or Tyler Seguin on your team for the future?
from the VERY LITTLE i've seen of both players, schenn
Seguin easily way more offensive upside
I'd take Schenn. Better defensively and that goes further in the playoffs. I only see Seguin topping of as a 60-70 point player kind of like a Stephen Wiess. I think Schenn will be around that mark also as a 60-70 point player but he will be better in other aspects of the game. Just not high on Seguin...
Seguin has a huge offensive upside, and is an NHL player.
Schenn is a two way beast, and is absolutely tearing up the WHL ... but he should be. He spent half a season of pro, and is a 19 year old. He will be a real good NHLer but Seguin is a tier 1 player, Schenn is a 1b
Brayden Schenn. He's being developed the right way and when he makes the Kings, he'll be a force in his rookie year.
I'd like to see more reasoning behind these arguments.
Seguin. I can't ignore that potential.
Seguin. Wouldn't even want to imagine the points Seguin would be putting up in junior this year and next.
Remember, Seguin is actually a year younger than Schenn.
lol both of these guys have leaf players in their name and both voted for Schenn, coincidence? i think not!
Says the guy with one of the players at question in their name.
thanks for Colborne!!
Seguin AINEC... sure he hasn't really met the expectations associated with a #2 overall pick, but it's not like Schenn has met the expectations associated with a #5 overall pick..
I enjoy how it is only the Leafs fans that have voted for Schenn.
Seguin is 18, kid is a beast, and definitely not a bust.
Seguin isn't being developed the right way? He's already made significant improvements in his defensive game and looked great last night in a tough, defensive game against Calgary.
Seguin... just way too much potential. He can be a franchise center for the Bruins. I just don't see the same upside with Schenn but he can become a solid all-around 1st line center.
Both will be great players though.
The Schenn hype is getting ridiculous now. Seguin 7 days a week and twice on Sundays easily.
Seguin, he has so much more offensive upside and has the potential to top out as a 80-100 point player. This is not a homer post as I would think the same whether he went to Boston or Edmonton. He is developing defensively this year and will have an offensive breakout next season when he is given his chance to shine in the Top 6 or Top 3.
Here is my reasoning for Seguin:
1. He actually plays in the NHL. One of the few cases where Schenn doesnt get the "centre depth" excuse. Both players had to impress mightily to stay on their teams rosters. One did, one didnt. I realize Seguin's draft pedigree helped a bit, but he earned his spot in the NHL.
2. Seguin is putting up very good points as an 18 year old. Could hit 30 the way hes played lately, and expect his point totals to increase A LOT when he gets more than 10 minutes of ice.
3. Seguin does most things better than Schenn. Hes a lot faster, slightly better passer, and has a better shot (has a good release). Schenn has physical play, and defensive play, but thats it
4. Schenn's footspeed will prevent him from being a gamebreaker like Seguin. This was shown at the WJC, when he was unable to will his way through team Russia, like Kuznetsov did.
All in all, Seguin will likely end up a better player. I am not thrashing Schenn at all though. For if neither were to become offensive beasts, Schenn would be able to play a 3rd line role more effectively than Seguin. Schenn will be a very good NHL player, and is elite in his own right, but Seguin just has that quality which stars have
Seguin is faster and uses it to his advantage. He'll make plays at full stride that most players can't make standing still, including Schenn IMO.
There's a league of offensive upside separating the two.
Seguin for me.
He's turning into the new Dustin Rose.
