Who you take going forward ?
They’re close enough that in a vacuum I don’t think you could go wrong with either at this point
Go with Nylander.... tentatively.
Has been hot trash since his signing
Drouin. He has a better contract and is the better player.
Ask me this last year Nyl... now I’m not sure. I need to see the rest of his season to get an accurate pick.
Nylander's stock is falling because he has poor offensive numbers after that contract saga, but the guy scored 61 points in each of his first two seasons and has good advanced stats this season. When he returns to form, he will at least be a 60 point player. Is Drouin's upside higher than his? It's possible.
55.9% CF% and just 6.1% oiSH% after 15 games. He looked rusty at first but not so much anymore.
Your post history and your avatar make it quite clear that you hate the Leafs, which is fine. I have teams that I can't stand either. But posts like this hurt your credibility because it shows a real lack of objectivity.
Anyways, this is pretty close either way. Nylander has had a bit more success and has generally posted better numbers than Drouin, but he also plays with Matthews, a talent that Drouin obviously doesn't have the benefit of lining up beside in Montreal. When he did play with Stamkos in Tampa, he posted 53 points in 73 games (prorated to 60 points over 82 games), which is extremely similar to Nylander's best totals to date.
Slight edge to Drouin. This is an interesting comparison with the turmoil surrounding each one (Nylander's contract dispute which has lead to rust since he's returned, plus Drouin being forced to play center).
I like both players. When Nylander starts vlicking his gonna make lots of people look stupid. Picked him but its really close. Homer vote on toss up...i guarantee both players will score 70 pts in a season soon within 3 years
3 points. 2 of then in one game 12 games ago.
So 1 goal the past 12 games for 10 million touch. For that price you better have some numbers on the score sheet along side the advanced stats.
Great poll, two mega skilled inconsisstent soft dissapointments.
Drouin slightly. Both players really need to significantly improve certain aspects of their games though. Offensively skilled but defensive play needs work.
Nylander is better defensively and a much more proven scorer at 5 on 5 and on the power play.
Not a fan of either player, went with Drouin.
In what world is back to back 60 point seasons a disappointment?
Only on HF.
How is 60 point seasons inconsistent?
Very similar players might even give the edge as of right now to Willy but Drouin is 1.5 million (21%) cheaper long term. Edge To JD.
Mid season form Nylander. But Drouin beats shell of himself post holdout nylander.
Both very overrated, for me this is who is less overrated
And that would be Drouin since Nylander plays in Toronto and is not only insanely overrated, but now also insanely overpaid.
In what metrics-doing his normal takeaway levels, and rising the corsi of the team to 3rd overall
1st in high danger chances
I know invisible stats.
The metrics that show he has 3 points in 17 games? G.A.R.B.A.G.E
