    I think it's a toss up. Suzuki is already pretty great for the Habs at 21. He finished the year 41 points in 56 games which equals exactly 60 points over 82 games. He can play PK, PP, OT. He's an all situations guy. Very fun to watch.

    Stützle is a super talented young forward. You saw it the other day with the hatty. Awesome video of the kids that showed up to his backyard to throw the hats by the way. I think he's going to pile up the points once he develops a bit and Ottawa gets better (which will happen soon).

    Jack Hughes is also very talented but he hasn't shown what he's fully capable of yet. He's not even 20 yet and he's also going to a great player at his top end.

    I think each of Jack Hughes and Stutzle are going to pile up the points. Probably around 85+ in their primes, and Suzuki will be the reliable Patrice Bergeron-esque 70-75 point centre year in year out.

    For the Habs I'd probably stick with Suzuki because he's a very complete player though. I think these 3 are all around the same level more or less so wanted to get some opinions.

    Stutzle for me. I'm a huge Suzuki fan though. Hughes has huge potential as well.

    Tough choice between Stutzle and Hughes for me, went Stutzle. Suzuki’s a pretty distant 3rd IMO.

    Suzuki is really good for the Habs but I would choose Stützle before him.

    Stutzle has shown the most coming right into the league let's see what he does next year. Suzuki seems to have arrived as well but he has had more time and Hughes I don't know he's got the talent but I think he'd be better utilized on the wing right now. I voted Stutzle.

    Man named, "Jesperi Suzuki", tries to insert Nick Suzuki into a group he doesn't belong in. What a shock.

    Stutzle.

    Stützle
    Hughes
    Suzuki

    Don’t see how anyone would choose Suzuki and it’s also kinda hard to justify picking Hughes over a player with similar ceiling but who is ~8 months younger but more accustomed to playing against grown men.

    Easily Hughes. Playdriving monster at both ends of the ice. Suzuki won't produce as much. Stutzle won't be as good defensively and is a winger rather than a center

    Stützle is the most exciting teenager to join the league in years.

    I'll keep Suzuki, he's proven, he's young and far from a finished product. He's on pace for 60 points, while being good defensively... Tim and Hughes are more gifted offensively, but it's far from a sure thing.

    Judging by the answers so far, maybe its time to sell my Stutzle young guns.

    Hughes has the biggest upside. Skating, passing and vision are of the charts. The question will be, if he can round out his game as Stützle has less deficiencies in areas as shooting ability and defensive game.

    Stutzle pretty easily. I’m leaning Suzuki over Hughes because he’s already a solid two-way player and outproducing Hughes (so far). However, I think Hughes will bring a little bit more points while Suzuki a little bit more smarts and two-way play over their career.
    Stuztle will likely outproduce both and bring a two-way game similar to Suzuki’s over time.

    Jack Hughes is on another level compared to the other two.

    Hughes is pretty much fine on defense. The issue is that he's one of the worst finishers in the NHL. I think statistically he's bottom 3 or 4 in the entire league.

    Suzuki should be more compared with Nico Hischier, Josh Norris and Shane Pinto...

    I'm buying

    Hughes still makes defensive mistakes wich result in goals or high danger chances to often for my taste. Some of it is due to his high risk, high reward style of play but i think he still has to improve on that area. As far as his shot is concerned, I absolutely agree that this is his biggest deficiency and should be his number one area to improve in the of season. Right now both accuracy and especially shot power are not on an NHL level. Luckily for him he is elite in many other aspects of the game already.

    No Devils fan is worried in the slightest about Hughes defensively, he is an elite transition defender already. The mistakes that lead to high danger chances against are from bad passes mostly leading to breakaways the other direction. Those will be fixed with time as he learns what he can and can't do in the NHL. He's already made tremendous strides compared to his rookie year where every game seemed to feature multiple passses into a defender's skates.

    The worry is his shot.
