    Pettersson is more dynamic and plays more aggressive so him.

    EP, but both will be top 5 centers in their prime.

    Pettersson is on pace to never play an injury-free season. Can't be him.

    But how? Pettersson looks better, Pettersson performs better this season despite being on a far weaker team as a rookie and Pettersson clearly has more room to improve. That's completely illogical.

    Pettersson for sure.

    Played better this season despite playing for a worse team and not getting as much as offensive support as Matthews.

    Last time I checked Pettersson was losing polls to guys like Eichel and Barkov lol

    It's Pettersson, he'll be the 2nd best player in the league after McDavid.

    Already one of the best players in the game with so much physical growth left to do, he's 6'2-6'3 and only 176 lbs.

    Pettersson is an amazing player but Matthews will go down as a top 3 player of this century so Matthews

    Not one chance in hell.

    You think he's going to be better than McDavid, forgetting about guys like Malkin or Kane for a second? Delegitimizes any credibility.

    It's closer than people are giving it credit for. Matthew's insane hot streaks at 40 goal rookie season still amaze me. I remember how he opened up this season. If he can find more consistency he'll be a top 3 goal scorer for years in the league IMO. Just depends on if you think Pettersson will make up for it with playmaking and defense. Although, fwiw, Pettersson is pacing 45 goals over a full 82 game season so who knows how high his ceiling is - even in pure goalscoring.

    When all is said and done I'd probably give it to Pettersson so far.

    It's so obvious the Canucks are thirsty. Let's wait til he hits 90 career pts.
