    Youd be fine going with either one but I think Robertson is poised to keep going through a boom in development especially factouring his younger birthday his draft year

    Suzuki's 1.44 points per game was slightly higher then Engvall's 1.43. Suzuki was clearly the Hab's worst plus/minus -15 while Engvall was a +4.
    Don't think players who score allot developing are typically good two-way players when they get to the NHL, nor do they typically make good coaches.
    They just didn't have to be a student of the game like some 3rd line plug. Think when it comes to playoff hockey, Robinson and Suzuki could both get
    outclassed by Engvall. Boring, stop the opposition, quiet hockey players excel sometimes.

    I am in Edmonton and have watched Pajaarvi, Yak and Gagner fail to ever surpass their rookie year so 13g is not something to get too worked up over. Suzuki was not as good in his D+1 season as Robertson and kind of had three similar Junior seasons in a row. But pro results are pro results and Robertson hasn't shown anything there yet. Plus Zuk might be a center (46% FO says maybe not but lots of players have a limp first year).

    I will reserve my vote until the end of next season unless one of them destroys it in the playoffs. Two good kids. We might laugh a lot about this comparison in a couple of yeas.:)




    On the other hand if he sticks atcenter

    Usually D+1 seasons get thrown out the window pretty quick once a player has graduated to the pro ranks. So many great junior hit a wall or stagnate as AHL level scorers, so what Suzuki did for Montreal this year is what we would love to see out of Robertson.
