Who is the better forward going into the 17-18 season?
Galchenyuk though I expect JVR to end up with more points.
I hope JVR.
Close but Galchenyuk.
Let's be honest, these are two players where it is fair to judge them primarily based on points.
JVR has proven to be consistent, so I say him until Galchenyuk can put together more than a 1/3 of a season of first line play.
leafs and jvr fan voting galchenyuk
End of 15-16 (from Jan 26th onwards) he had 29 points in 33 games.
Start of 16-17 (until his injury in Dec 4th) he had 23 points in 25 games.
Things didn't go very smoothly after his injury, and the Habs hit a really rough stretch there as well that ultimately led to the coaching change. He then had a hot-streak in late February IIRC but his production overall clearly slowed down.
Im not saying he should be a PPG player next season, but if he doesn't end up between 60-70 pts that's a major disappointment. It's time for him to step up now.
Chucky now and certainly going forward.
I can't really think of anything that Galchenyuk does better than JVR.
Similar players, though. Good poll.
One is consistent and older
The other is younger and produces more, but not always.
JVR but close.
Gally will play a bigger role but JVR will probably end up with similar points if not a few more. Good poll. I would rather have Gally so I will say him.
Id rather have Chucky going forwards but for only this season I'd take JVR
Closest versus poll of the day
As a Habs fan I really like JVR, but I think overall Chuck has a few more tools in his box for O and a little less for D. Its close, Chuck at center or RW or JVR if its LW
Chuck has more value but JVR is the better player right now.
The truth is JVR never reached his full potential (he wasted some prime developmental years playing under Wilson/Carlysle), but he's still a very good offensive player. He should ideally be sheltered with a strong, 2-way centerman.
As a player, Chuck is very similar to JVR. JVR is a better skater. Chuck has a better shot. JVR has better hands and is a superior finisher. Chuck is a better playmaker.
JVR is better.
JVR is easily the better forward going into the 17-18 season
Jvr has better hands than Galchenyuk? A better finisher...maybe in the crease area only...not sure hes a better skater either as theyre both rather unimpressive
One thing that sticks out to me is that jvr can use his size better. Maybe the skating is the only other thing i'd give him over Galchenyuk, but hands and finisher? No.
tough one to judge but Id rather have Chucky going foward because I do think he can be the better player.
Well since JVR has always outperformed Galchenyuk in every way........gotta go with JVR!
Good question. Leafs 6th best forward vs montreals 2nd best
