    It's closer than the poll results would suggest but I would rather have Pasta on my team and you wouldn't need to ask twice.

    Pasta for now. Both have had brilliant starts though and I think Mikko has elevated himself into the same “class” of player that Pasta is (and has been) - even if he’s a shade below at the moment.

    Pasta really would be a franchise forward on a lot of teams - the fact that he’s on the leagues best line with two veteran superstars sometimes makes you forget how good he is. And I think the same will basically be said about Mikko by the end of this season.

    Rants all day long. Just imagine how good he'd be if he played w/ Bergeron and Marchand.

    is everything
    They're pretty much even now and when Rantanen gets even better at using his 6'4 frame, he'll pull ahead.

    Yeah playing with a 100 point MacKinnon must suck.

    I have Rantanen ahead. I think he's a monster. 6'4, clearly last season was not a fluke as he's leading the NHL in points.

    I was researching the best wingers in the NHL for right now and the future.

    If I had to sign this NHL winger to a 10 year contract for 9 million dollars per year who would I want?

    I left of all the players drafted prior to 2010, starting with Taylor Hall. Hall at 27 just missed my cut.

    I went through every draft from 2011. The oldest player on my list is Kucherov at 25. I would sign Kucherov to a 10 year deal. He also has a 100 point season so it makes sense to have him on. I left of all the 2018 drafted players because even though Svechnikov and Brady Tkachuk look promising I wouldn't want to commit 9 million a season to them.

    Here are the top NHL wingers right now and potentially for the next 10 years.

    1. Miko Rantannen (22)
    2. Mitch Marner (21)
    3. Nikita Kucherov (25)
    4. Johnny Gaudreau (24)
    5. David Pastrňák (22)
    6. Matt Tkachuk (20)
    7. Patrik Laine (20)

    So obviously i'm putting an emphasis on age. I also had a preference for playmaking wingers that drive the offence.

    Here are players I left of that also have big potential.

    Forsberg, Nylander, Domi, Ehlers, Clayton Keller all missed the cut and look closer to 70-75 point potential players worth around 6.5 million 7.0 million.
