Which player would you rather have for your team now and in the future?
Forgot to add poll, can someone help me out?

lindholm...nylanders softer than charmin
I mean Lindholm is obviously having a better year but long term this is pretty easily Nylander. Just a more talented player.
Lindholm is mostly a product of the great Johnny G.
Lindholm has already surpassed Nylander's career high in goals and is only 1 point shy of Nylander's career high in points... that's with 29 games to go.
Not to mention Lindholm has proven to be elite defensively as well.
Then, when you consider contracts (Lindholm @ 4.85M for 6 seasons vs Nylander @ $6,962,366 for 6 seasons) and it's very clear who the more valuable player is and who you'd prefer to have on your team.
I take Nylander every day of the week. He's starting to get very underrated around these parts.
Lindholm plays centre and wins 55% of the draws.
Player, i take Lindholm, including the contracts i take Lindholm and run.
It would have clearly been Nylander before this season started, but it’s hard to imagine Nylander doing better than Lindholm is in Calgary right now.
This season only or in the future too? I think alot of people are starting to sleep on Nylander after this odd season.
Lindholm doesn't play center. He's the RW with Gaudreau and Monahan.
They might be splitting the position or something because both are on pace for 500+ faceoffs. Nevertheless Lindholm winning 54%+ faceoffs brings a lot of value even if he is playing wing and only taking draws.
Last year Nylander took 600 but he was a winger. Teams tend to put guys on their strong sides for faceoffs now. It is a pretty common trend league-wide.
Lindholm is a righty and Monahan a lefty. It makes sense that they'd split draws. Monahan is still the C of the line
I don't care about the poll. But saying Nylander is soft is wrong. He does play a more peramiter game, and isn't as much in the dirty areas as he could be. But he still goes there, he still battles hard. And best of all he's built like a machine.
Not being Jamie benn= soft for a lot of young players smh.
The fact Lindholm is winning the poll over a half of a season sample size is laughable.
Nylander's probably the better player moving forward but when you include contracts I'd take Lindholm pretty easily.
Lindholm is tied in points this 'half season' with Nylander's career best season
You don't think the fact that Nylander is currently on pace for 59 less points over a 82 game season is relevant?
Nylander is on an 37 point pace per 82 games, Lindholm 96
This is such a wrong comment. Lindholm is a very important piece on the Flames top line. I’ve said it before, he’s been better than Monahan. He plays excellent PK time. He has a very good shot and is very gritty.
At least Leaf fans put the whole Nylander vs Gaudreau debate to sleep. What a joke that was...
This. It is laughable to argue small sample size in favour of Nylander. Truly.
This one will probably be a fun one to pull up in a year or two if it isn't locked down.
You got to look deeper than just points. Lindholm have been really reliant on secondary assists, pp points and playing with Gaudreau, and Monahan. Maybe the gap isn't as huge as I initially thought.. however not one person would have had Lindholm ahead of Nylander before this season, and it silly to think a half of a season sample size is enough evidence to support Lindholm is better than Nylander. Need a bigger sample size
How do you "take a player and run" when you don't even know what position he plays?
