What Duo would you rather take?
The Finns have the only proven superstar but the upside is much bigger with the Swedish combo.
I love this poll and it will be worth to visit in 2-5 years when we have an idea how Heiskanen/Petersson/Dahlin pan out. For now, its the Fin duo.
Longterm i would take Dahlin and Pettersson. This season i would take Laine and Heiskanen. Voted Dahlin/Pettersson
Close but give me the Finns
I think Finns are safer pick, but Swedes have bigger potential
As of now it's clearly the Finns. In 5 years it will be close.
Opted to not vote.
Why tho? Dahlin May have higher potential than Heiskanen but I don't see Pettersson touching Laine's potential.
I know I’m the OP but I’m quite surprised by everyone saying that the Swedes have a clear advantage in potential... IMO Pettersson bear peak potential is probably somewhere at Laines current level now and I believe Laine has much room to grow as well(in particularly he will likely get higher usage over the years and one of his major flaws which is skating isn’t actually looking half bad, IMO just off of the footage from game 1 Laines skating was actually extremely good for a player of his size and stature).
Laine is not a superstar. A star player, sure. Superstars are mcdavid, ovie and crosby
Meh, Laine is the strongest candidate for being the best goal scorer in the league.
Finns now, higher upside with Swedes
Since Laine came to the league only Ovechkin has scored more goals than him. 3 more goals in 10 more games.
Seems like a superstar.
He is not even ppg. If Laine is a superstar so is 20 more players.
And Matthews has a higher goal/per game than Laine. 5 more goals in 11 more games
what the hell are you talking about? Laine is a mother****ing superstar. Period.
Go read TSN if you want to read about Matthews, no need to bring him up in this thread.
Finns have the edge cause Laine is already one of the best scorers in the league and that won't change, but the Swedes in a couple of years here will really make this a very tough poll
What are you gunna do about it post police? That's what I thought...
Laine is one of the best goal scorers on the planet, right now he's clearly the best player of the 4. But Pettersson is a C and will be a better all-around player.
Dahlin > Heiskanen.
I'd slightly lean toward the Finnish duo. But as a Canucks fan, i'd certainly hope i'm wrong on this.
IMO based on how I see them developing
Heiskanen > Pettersson => Dahlin >> Laine so the Swedes I guess
