Which duo was better, the old era or present era?
Lecavalier and St.Louis.
Current Stamkos is unfortunately by far the worst player out of the 4, 25 goal scorer collecting ghost assists on a stacked team, at their peak it's Stamkos/Kucherov easily.
What makes it easy? Lecavalier was also a Richard winner at his peak and St. Louis is the only Art Ross winner here.
Current Lecavalier begs to differ, couldn't even crack an NHL roster.
Do people think of Stamkos and Kucherov as a duo?
Why wouldn't you?
Each player at their absolute peak (as in best season), I put it Stamkos>MSL>Vinny>Kucherov, but all of them pretty close. MSL obviously has the best career of the four to date. I would say Kucherov's peak season is pretty comparable to Vinny's, but I gave the slight edge to the raw point total.
I ... don't know? I guess my reflex is to say MSL/Vinny.
I feel like they're different types of duos, although I'm having some difficulty explaining what exactly I mean by that.
Is this peak or career?
I know people will say Stamkos is the weak link here and he obviously isn't the player he once was but at his peak he did win 2 Rockets and was top 2 in scoring 5 out of 6 years and the one year he wasn't was because of injury and he lead the league in goals per game. That 6 year stretch was ridiculous.
To me, the weak link here is Lecavalier. He only has two PPG seasons in his 17 year career and those were both in high scoring years just after the lockout. Great player but two top 10 scoring finishes and 2 top 10 point finishes isn't all that impressive compared to the other three here.
If we're talking each player playing at their peak, it's Stamkos and Kucherov.
Peak Stamkos was arguably the best goal scorer on planet earth and Kucherov is the best winger in the game.
As much as I have a bad taste in my mouth about St. Louis, he's the only thing making this even remotely close, IMO.
Peak Stamkos is the best player here. The other 3 are close.
Career is between MSL and Stamkos, but Stamkos is probably ahead and will definitely be by the time he's done. Kucherov has already matched Lecavalier's top 10 pt and goal finishes and should be comfortably ahead soon.
Personally like Stamkos and Kuch more, but I’ll taken the proven winners, for now.
MSL and Lecavalier.
At their peaks? It’s close, but I’d go with MSL and Lecavalier. They both were among the best while both being a part of a stanley cup. But in the long run I’d take Stamkos and Kucherov. Lecavalier wasn’t nearly as consistent as MSL, so I would consider him the “weak link”, but Kocherov is still young and Stamkos can have a better season this time around.
Didn't both MSL and Lecavalier lead that team to a cup?
Also, at his absolute peak, Stamkos was not better than MSL at his absolute best, and Lecavalier was amazing as well.
St. Louis and Richards did. Lecavalier helped.
Lecavalier was great in '07.
peak Stamkos and Kucherov didn't really play togehter. If it's post injury Stamkos + Kucherov than I'll go with the old guys.
What a shame Stammer peaked at 21.
Regular Season: 2 Close 2 Call
Playoffs: Vinny & Marty
He's a 25 goal scorer because he now plays with a top goal scorer in the league... doesn't have to be the one ripping pucks in every night now, like he did with MSL.
Peak: Stamkos>MSL>Vinny>Kuch but all super close
I’ll go with MSL and Vinny. All 4 were truly elite forwards at some point
Lecavier and MSL actually won a cup.
And then they became two of four players who had rather large contracts that sucked the depth out of the team and the 4 of them played so many minutes that they were dead exhausted by the time they made the playoffs and nobody except fans of all of the other teams lived happily ever after.
