    Petterson is a stud, but you don't give up the chance to get an ELC dman of Dahlins level.

    I'm going to be very interested to hear the responses.

    Because a **** ton of people were saying things along the lines of "who gives a **** he hasn't proven himself in the NHL yet" when he was destroying the SHL.

    He's clearly the safer pick at the moment and my main concern with him, his ability to play center at the NHL level, is no longer an issue.

    Picking Dahlin is perfectly reasonable but I'd like to think that there won't be a bunch of morons acting like it isn't even close.

    Why is this a poll? Depends on the team, if you need D you take Dahlin, if you need a C you take Pettersson. Polls comparing players playing different positions are silly.

    Just pretend that you're a first year expansion team, and now it's your turn to pick, and these two are available. That's usually what a poll like this is trying to get at.

    On the Oilers im torn.
    Our 2ndary scoring is trash and Petterson next to Draisaitl would be the best 2nd line in the NHL.
    Klefbom, Larsson, Nurse and Bouchard make a decent top4.

    Cant decide but my gut says Dahlin.

    Neutral Swedish fan. What might make me pick Pettersson is the fact that Sweden already are so good on D, but if I look away from all of that I take Dahlin

    Comments such as those can be discarded as they are proof they haven't actually watched him play.

    D-take longer to develop. Pettersson is a year and a half older and a forward so I'd expect him to look better out of the gate. I still think dahlin will be that franchise D-man so I'd go with him even though Pettersson's recent play is making that decision a lot tougher. I'm loving Pettersson on my fantasy team at the moment tho.

    Center is more important position than defender.

    Tough one. I'm gonna pick the center though if it's between a franchise level D or a franchise level C. I do think Dahlin is going to be an absolute stud in a few seasons.

    Stop being a clown for once, Dahlin is a generational talent. People are gonna look bad at some of posts and regret making them, I love Pettersson but Dahlin is one of the few guys I’d take over him going forward.

    fine I'll take Heiskanen

    might as well go back to pre draft analysis where I put him #1

    Karlsson Chabot McAvoy proves dmen have different trajectory than pre draft hype. Dahlin no doubt will be an elite D

    I think Heiskanen is better than Dahlin so this is Pettersson.

    Personal preference towards dmen. Theyre on the ice more than a centers, they effect possession for their team more as well and they generally have longer periods of effectiveness.
