    The group with McDavid will always win sadly, despite everyone else on the other team being better

    I like the top group better its more rounded out. Going forward.


    Matthews<McDavid
    Marner>Laine
    Rielly>>Trouba
    Eichel=Scheifele
    Dahlin>>Klefbom

    Laine needs to get more opportunity, klef has to recover back to 2 seasons ago form and then some. Trouba needs to stay healthy and then get to a new level. My only concern and it isnt as big as the other group is Dahlin taking another step or 2 from right now.

    Have to go with the Leafs and Sabres. I give the edge to the Oilers/Jets forwards but it is a small gap. Big advantage to Mo and Dahlin on D.

    Based on how I see things being 3-5 years from now...

    McDavid
    -
    -
    Matthews
    Eichel
    Dahlin
    Laine
    -
    -
    Marner
    Rielly
    -
    Trouba
    -
    Klefbom

    I'd go with the Leafs and Sabres group but replacing Klefbom with Bouchard would make it more interesting for me.

    And to the Leafs fans who consider it blasphemy to have Matthews in the same group as the other 3 three or not with McDavid after the 5 good games he's had to start the season, it is what it is. I need to see more than a good week from him.

    The group with McDavid easily. But nice try throwing Klefbom in there to try and weaken the Jets/Oil team.

    I would agree, but I would slot in Marner just slightly under Laine.

    I picked 3 forwards and 2 defensemen, with 1 defensemen from each team. Would someone else have been a better option than Klefbom? I don't really follow the Oilers and I thought at one point Klefbom was considered their best defensemen.

    Your scaling is inconsistent.

    If the gap between McDavid and Matthews is ">>" then the gap between Kelfbom and Dahlin is

    "<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<"

    McDavid is on a whole different level than any other player in this league. It's very clear when you just simply watch him play.

    Cool. I was just trying to say that if we're trying to indicate talent gaps with the number of ">" things then Dahlin is in an entirely different universe than Klefbom. Just trying to be consistent.

    Yeah, I actually think he is. It would be unfair to compare Dahlin without taking in consideration his potential too.
