    Assume All Else Equal. Which of these centers would you add to your team?

    Stopped reading at "Russian" and took the other one without hesitation.

    Need more than just ice time. Assuming center B is of Bergeron/Couturier defensive ability and center A is of Tavares ability, I go B

    80 points is most likely always better than 60.

    Assuming the "everything else is equal" means equal defensively and in possession, and their ES/PP splits are similar when taking into account their ice time difference, I would take A. Player B has been put in a worse position to succeed, and could possibly raise his totals in a better one, but I would take the guy who actually produced.

    Bergeron is a perfect example of how much a player can statistically improve with offensive opportunity.

    Center A because the OP said "assume everything else is equal", so I assumed that their defensive game was equal and took the guy who actually produced more.

    Eh, center B seems like a risk that they won't maintain production. So A.

    List of players that scored 65 or more points with 1:30 PPTOI/G or less last season:

    End of list


    Player B because his offense is McDavid good and he's being absurdly underutilized.

    Player B is a selke-level C with 55% faceoffs, 45% O-zone starts and 2.30 SH-play. If Still getting 65p I`d easily take him.
