    I think Aho would be winning this if he and Point switched teams

    I mean, the same could be said of Barzal. Barzal's playmaking with either Kucherov or Stamkos firing lasers into the net?

    God this is tough. Went Barzal because I think his skating separates him long term, which is saying something considering Point and Aho are both elite skaters.

    It's actually the homer glasses that are burning your eyes. Aho is in a totally different class from Barzal. Drives play and produces at a level that Barzal can only dream of. And point, while he does play with Kucherov, is still significantly better than Barzal.

    Aho should age well so there's no real point to consider Barzal as good as he too is now.

    [mod] Aho is putting up a hart quality season. Barzal on the other hand can’t crack a ppg pace and is literally worse at every aspect of hockey outside of skating. The difference between them is absolutely massive.

    [mod] Aho is better than Barzal but to say its not even close is just silly.

    To me Barzal has the highest offensive potential. Drives offense a bit better than the other two. Point will probably be the best all around, and has some Selkes in his future. Aho a very close third.
