    I wouldn't put anything past Inerte.

    He has Matthews type upside.

    Tough one here. I like them both a lot, but I think Dubois’ size could be the difference between the two.

    Inerte is a total beast. It's Inerte AINEC.

    Inerte should be adopted as the new Nick name for Kotkaniemi.

    How does one go from Kotkaniemi to inerte? That's impressive, even for auto correct.

    Inerte's a potential generational talent

    Inerte is the type of player that drags his franchise to multiple cups. Definitely him.

    Only Dustin Rose has had a higher upside than Inerte.

    Size isn't restricted to height. Dubois is like a young version of Jamie Benn. He's also nearly 20 pounds heavier than Kotkaniemi

    But he’s also built like a tank. Kotka is a little lankier.

    Personally, i've never seen Inerte do anything. Giving this one to Dubois.

    Kotkaniemi shouldn't play in the NHL right now though, he should go back and gain some weight. A good twenty pounds or so.

    Kotkaniemi seems to have pretty good genetics, he's not like Pettersson, he's slim, but mainly because he just turned 18, IMO he's going to be way over 200 when he's in his prime, you can see it in his shoulders.

    I can agree for the near-future, though.

    It's a tie for me skill-wise but PLD's size secures him the win.

    I really don't think there's a tie skill-wise. Kotkaniemi is one of the most skilled players Ive seen, especially stick handling.

    PLD gets things done but he's not flashy at all.

    Personally, I think what separates PLD and Kotkaniemi is that one is proven and the other is 18 and just got drafted.

    We know how high you are on Kotkaniemi at this point haha! Some of us just prefer Dubois.

    I see it a little like the Tkachuk/Marner threads..it’s tough to weigh someone who controls the ice and plays with pure skill against a skilled player that uses his strength and can win games in other ways. Tough compromise to make.
