    Who do you consider as having the best overall potential of these 2 oustanding young player?

    I watched them play yesterday (as they are probably up for good now) and I have a tough time deciding who I would pick if I were a DG starting from scratch...
     
  2. I've always liked Getzlaf more, he is huge, his skating is improving he can pass the puck and can fire the puck. I think he will be a good all around player, maxing at maybe around ppg with physical play, and decent defense. Perry's a wizard with the puck, everytime I watch him I am amazed by his reach and creativity. I think his offensive potential is higher than Getzlaf but Ryan will be the better all around guy.

    Imo , Perry have more offensive potential.

    However , Getzlaf seem to have a better all around game and that's why i would choose him over CP.

    But that's just me :sarcasm:

    Getzlaf for me I like his complete game he can do it all. Perry is good and has more offensive potential but if I was to start a team and I had a choice between these two players I would go with Getzlaf.

    Getzlaf was one of the best players for the stacked Canadian team at the 2005 WJC. He was such a strong all-round force. He has better all-round potential than Perry. Perry has more offensive upside, but outside of that extra gear, there really isn't anything that Getzlaf is lacking.

    Personally I like Getzlaf, seems like has a more dyamic all round polished game, whereas Perry's game lacks some of that. Getzlaf played really well at the wj, and I loved watching him play, his skating and hitting was strong and seemd like he was a force out there. IMO it seems like if he was a player that didnt play in that top 6 role, which I believe in the future he would be, he would still be somewhat succesful, whereas if Perry didnt play in the top 6 role he would be far less effective, my 2 cents thanks:D

    Getzlaf, by far. A big man with soft hands is almost impossible to find.

    Getzlaf...for reasons already stated, complete all-around skills, Perry if he develops could become a magnificient offensive player but Getzlaf if he develops would grade out well at just about every facet of the game except speed.
     
  11. This is it exactly I think. Getzlaf's game has matured more quickly than Perry's. Or maybe it was more mature all along, I don't know. Never watched them play in juniors. But Perry seems a lot more reluctant to let go of his junior moves than Getzlaf. You can tell they both have the touch, but Getzlaf's making it happen already while Perry seems to be a step behind.

    I was able to watch both during their AHL stay with Portland and right now, I'd go with Perry.

    He's a natural goal scorer (which are always hard to find) and is a very solid passer as well. His downside appears to be his overall skating and perhaps spending too much time on the outskirts.

    Getzlaf may turn out to be the superior player, however, long term. He isnt immune to high traffic areas and has exceptional vision. Like many playmakers, though, he does tend to think pass too often, rather than taking advantage of his own scoring chances.

    I'm pretty high on Getzlaf, I would choose him to build a team around.

    I personally prefer Perry... He led the OHL London Knights to the Championship in terms of points... He dominated at his last WJC... He has shown before he can be a big game player, and he gets my vote...

    I'll go with the consensus pick in Getzlaf, but it's really close. Fortunately, the Ducks are lucky enough to not have to make a decision on the matter(unless they're going to trade one of them, which I don't see happening).

    Yeah, Getzlaf here for all of the reasons stated above.

    That, and I hate the Knights.

    Perry - because he has improved so much over the last two years and his offensive awareness and vision are very rare indeed. I also think he'll put on a few more pounds and work on his skating to really put him at that next level.

    That, and I love the knights.

    As a Ducks fan, I'm leaning more towards Getzlaf because he can do all of the little things right like taking faceoffs, passing the puck and shooting it, grinding, playing defense, you name it he's got it all. Perry, on the other hand, plays with more of an offensive flair. The down side is that sometimes, he gets too fancy and looses the opportunity to put the puck in behind the net with his spinoramas and toe drags. He needs to work on not getting too fancy or else he'll be another Chistov(also got too fancy and that's why he's playing in Russia rather than Anaheim).

    A little bit of FYI for ya, BRG. Back in the 03 Draft, the Ducks picked Getzlaf higher in 19th overall while they traded Dallas 2 2nd round picks to get Perry in 28th overall.

    No, really? :sarcasm:

    Obviously, as any Duck fan would, I knew that(I actually prayed Getzlaf would fall to them, and celebrated when Washington took Eric Fehr, didn't know much about Perry, though), and my point was that at the moment, they don't have to make a choice between the two like some fantasy GMs would have to, they already have both.
