    Heiskanen is a year older and is in a much better situation

    I think I'd take Heiskanen over Dahlin anyway so Heiskanen.

    Wouldnt of believed it based on hype.

    But yeah, Dahlin has looked like pure ass, and not even close to generational.

    He could have a super quick development over the year, but at this point it's not really close, Heiskanen is better.

    Heiskanen is a year older and is playing on a a better team. Even if Dahlin is the better player long term I think that is a strong advantage when just comparing rookie years so I choose Heiskanen. His skating and hockey sense is ridiculous.

    Offensively, Dahlin

    Defensively, Heiskanen

    Overall impact on the game, Heiskanen

    Heiskanen’s a safer bet for better rookie season.

    Long term, Dahlin probably takes him out, but these two ahould both be elite defensemen for the next decade plus.

    Well the amount of hype Dahlin has gotten I believe that Miro will surprise.

    There will be a lot of backlash because of this homerism.

    I thought Dahlin was the next Lidstrom?

    Well lets see if Heiskanen can do something about the "Laine problem" the Stars have had over the last 2 years. 9 games and 14 goals for Laine. This needs to stop if the Stars are planning on making an impact during Laine's time in the League...

    I think Dahlin will put up more points (he's on the first PP unit right?)

    I think Heiskanen's overall game will be better. Not surprising though considering Dahlin is 18 years old. I still think Dahlin has a better chance at the Calder even if Heiskanen has a better season (hype, reputation, etc)

    Both will have their ups and downs, and I think Heiskanen could have a tough game when he faces Laine and the Jets come saturday. Especially if he plays 20+ minutes. Won't be easy at all

    Nope he's on the 2nd unit. Will be hard-pressed to take Risto's spot.

    Dahlin is a better prospect because he's younger, but Heiskanen is the better player today

    Man really? Guess both Heiskanen and Dahlin will have to deal with just being on the 2nd unit for the time being lol. By the end of the year I bet theyve both seen at least some first PP unit time though. They're too good to keep down like that and eventually the 1st unit will struggle enough

    He just needs to take Okposo's on the right half wall. It would leave the second unit barren but we've got to score somehow.

    Did he play that spot on Frolunda's power play at all? I think he's better suited to QB the PP from the point but putting him on the 1st unit alongside Ristolainen might work well.

    Dahlin already is a better player (Heiskanen is great though) and will be in the future aswell. What Heiskanen might have is a better situationen and team in Dallas that might help him a little, but I still think Dahlin will have a better rookie season.

    I don't think people outside of Sweden (and maybe Buffalo) have realised what a special talent Dahlin is yet, but they will.

    I think the last part goes better with Heiskanen at HF.
