Yeah, if we don't end this now Quinn might pull ahead of Cale again
Or you’re just a massive homer, that seems like the more logical conclusion.
As a Flyers , Jets fan i am not tied to either player . They are both in the Dahlin tier and i would love to have either one on my team . That being said if i had to choose i would slightly lean towards Makar . He is more physically capable and his first pass is just so elite .
Might be going a bit far there...
Not even close honestly. Dahlin is probably the best dman to come out of the draft in 15 years or so.
Make that 17 points in 17 games for Makar
Obviously you haven't watched Cale Makar play. Agreed Dahlin is outstanding but Makar is special too.
Just about had a 3rd O.O
Man he has our best player lately. Yes over Mackinnon boy he’s fun to watch him play.
Fair enough, we don't get to see much of Makar in Colorado
You know what? I like my chances.
This is what Avs fans were talking about a month ago when we said Makar had another gear. He’s been electric.
Makar hasnt even scratched the surface of his potential. He's had some growing pains and hasnt looked great at times--but he's still PPG at the NHL level. In a few years he'll be insane.
Avs still kicking themselves they passed on EP, believe that.
Great player to be sure. But the Avs needed a D-man. Makar is an impact player to be sure.
If only we had drafted EP...we might've been able to flip him for someone like Hughes, Heiskanen or even Makar...
EP is an excellent young player...one I look forward to watching create alongside Hughes & Podkolzin for years, even if Boeser dips...but with MacK in tow already, we needed that potential #1 on the backend; which meant Makar or Heiskanen in that class. So after Miro went 3rd it was an easy choice for our organization, and it's one that has gone wonderfully for us.
Our rookie defenseman is ppg right now and only 4 points back of Pettersson. I doubt the scouting department is crying themselves to sleep at night.
None of the teams that drafted 3rd, 4th, 5th in 2017 are kicking themselves.
I think Dahlin will be better overall, both Makar and hughes will be primarily 80% on what their offense brings.
Makar have clearly been better than Hughes this season so far. He driving xg among the best in the league. Anyways, both defensemen are studs and each fanbase should consider themselves lucky to have these young studs quarterbacking their backend for years to come.
No, don't believe that.
I think when it's all said and done,
Makar > Pettersson > Heiskanen > Hischier > Patrick.
I think he will be solidly after Makar.
Don't forget transition, which means not having to play in your own end.
That and I doubt we've seen the best of Makar or Hughes' D games yet. That and if Makar is scoring 100+ pts per year (possible in my opinion), that's value that you can't match with any quality of D-play.
As much as I like how offensive both Makar and Hughes are I doubt either player gets to 90 points nevermind 100.
As a side not John Carlson has a single best 70 points last year and is tracking for 128, which everyone agrees he won't reach, but how many points does he score overall this year?
He would need 57 points in his last 64 games to break 80 points which is were I believe he might end up close to 80 points.
Makar somewhere around 60 this season and Hughes around 45.
Makar is not going to be a 100+ point player lol. None of the current young dmen will be. And of course you haven't seen the best of their defensive games yet they're rookies
