    Haha good one. I'd take Domi, Gallagher, Kotkaniemi and Drouin over Nylander.

    This is nylander easy.

    People forget he wasn’t playing nhl hockey and comes back to a team that was in fire and had to figure out how to incorporate him. Remember the lockout kadri was Ppg because he was playing ahl hickey while most of the league was on a couch. Never played at that level again. Another example is karlsson you guys all probly thought he was a bum but it was just about learning to incorporate him to a new team that was already clicking.

    In due time this thread will b bumped and you will all be laughed at.

    Nylanders rookie year is better than any of drouins

    I still see a lot of potential in Nylander but with Drouin stepping up his play I see why he has pulled ahead.

    Which is more likely accurate the last 19 games, or the 160ish before that?

    Nylander for now. Drouin has never put up more than 53 points (he will this season) and Nylander had back to back 60 point seasons as a 20 and 21 year old. Ask my opinion at the end of next season and maybe it will have changed.

    Destroy an argument, try another another lie.
    Points are points, Laine can even get helpers.
    Zaitsev is outscoring him.

    I agree. I would take all 4 of them combined over Nylander too.

    Individually I'd take each over Nylander. You know what I meant.

    You’d think a Jets fan wouldn’t be so quick to throw shade on a young player who suffered a slump considering Laine is on pace for what, 50 points this season?

    Nylander was never elite. Leafs fans just praised him as such, but he never drove a line the way even guys like Ehlers or Connor have. Nylander rode PP production and AM around to 2 60 goal seasons. Whoop-di-doo. I'm pretty sure you could take most half-decent players and put them in that situation and they'd put up similar numbers. Ehlers, Laine, etc all have much more sustainable production and drive the play themselves. The gap between a guy like Ehlers and Nylander is enormous.

    Look at how rare back to back 60 point seasons are by NHLers are before the age of 22.

    It’s exceedingly rare. Call it “elite” call it exceptionally rare” use whatever term, he’s still projecting to be among some of the top of the league.

    The idea that there’s any gap between Elhers and Nylander is simply laughable

    Not only but I'm wondering why is Zaitsev even being mentioned with Nylander in combined goals between them? No Leafs fans expected to see Zaitsev scoring goals at a Norris Trophy level and considering when Nylander started playing this season you would expect Laine to have more goals than him.

    Nylander easily

    Drouin is trash. 4 assists in last 15 games and those 4 assists came in 1 game. Scoreless in 14 of his last 15 games.

    Nylander on below 40pts pace, this is still Drouin.

    I really am amazed that so many posters are willing to throw away any and all credibility they could have when Nylander comes up in conversation. Nylander is still just as good as he was the last two years, and he just had a long stretch of games where he played C (remember that whole debate?) and looked fantastic.

    The answer is quite obviously Nylander and no "but his pace!" changes that. I know that argument is nonsense, you know that argument is nonsense, so let's just leave it at the door.
