Which swedish D-man will turn out better?
First: who the heck is that??!! Obviously Lilly.
*looks at hdb* wow, that's crazy. Good for him shooting up like that!
I'll take the guy I've heard of.
If Liljegren was putting up the points Pilut is putting up in the AHL right now, Leafs fans would have about 5 polls comparing him to top 10 NHL defensemen.
What a terrible thread. Would hope a guy 4 years older could put up a few points in the AHL.
That's a you problem.
One was undrafted one was ranked second overall in his draft year.
One is 4 years older bud.
If Timmy is still in the AHL in 4 years he will be a bust. Thats how out to lunch this poll is.
Development isn't linear.
Just because Pilut is 4 years older and Lilly will make it well before his age doesn't mean he will become substantially better guaranteed.
I would still bet on Lilly, but Pilut is very impressive and both I think will become top-4 D.
SHL defenseman of the year followed up by the rookie camp he had in Buffalo (he showed he would clearly be one of Buffalo's best D already *I know not saying much*). Then this start in the AHL. People will know his name soon enough.
Never heard of Pilut, but he led his SHL team in scoring last season, so he's obviously good, just a late bloomer. I'd put as much faith in him producing at his current pace as I would Morgan Rielly, though.
Maybe he will............in 4 years, when he's Piluts' age.
So? Pilut is obviously a late bloomer. Development isnt linear.
I don't know who the other guy is, so I'll take Tim
pretty terrible poll if the Leaf player is winning it. do better, OP.
Pilut will be better regardless of age
Never heard of Pilut but wow great start for him. Just wondering, why hasn't he been called up to the sabres if he's looked so good?
Funnily enough, I know who Pilut is because of EHM -- I signed him out of Sweden and he ended up becoming my captain. But... back on topic.
I spend most of my time in the team boards. First trip to the main boards in a while and I see this post. HF's gonna HF, I guess.
I have to vote pedigree here because I haven't seen Pilut play, which kinda sucks. Because pedigree is a horrible way to rate players.
Especially when it comes to defensman
The Sabres want to give him some development time down there. I can't imagine that is more than a month or 2 if he keeps it up.
He was clearly one of the Sabres best D in pre-season and snubbed of a roster spot. Probably should be playing top-4 minutes for us if it was based on their play alone.
Pilut is good but cmon
Are you a Bolts fan or a Leafs fan? I can never tell...
Regardless if Sabres fans are right about the player he's been, then I don't see why it can't be comparable.
I’m a Bolts fan. I just don’t irrationally hate the leafs. Pilut is good especially offensively and I definitely see top-4 upside in him but I could see Lilypad become a top pair guy for sure if he hits his own upside.
Not sure either ends up as a top pairing guy but Liljigren seems a safer bet to at least be a solid second pairing guy. So him
Why not add more Swedish dmen? Why Liljegren of all people?
Because Toronto vs. Buffalo, I'm sure.
