    Sabres trio: Eichel, Dahlin, Nylander

    Jets trio: Scheifele, Laine, Connor

    Who do you take: the proven commodities in the Jets, or the big potential of the Sabres?

    That's tough.
    I expect Dahlin to be the best of the bunch one day and Nylander is a true wildcard.

    Good job O.P, but too close for me.

    Sabres, just for Dahlin potential. Also Eichel can be top5 some day. I believe Scheifele is close to his peak right now, allthough Laine could hit 60 goals as soon as this season.
    So it's Jets for this season, but if everyone hits their roof it's Sabres.

    Could go either way because nylander is by far the worst player here. Went with the sabres because of dahlin. This would be better if the jets used morissey etc. Having a dman in there makes it tough. Pretty much a toss up. As a whole the jets are my favorite organization in the league at this point.

    It's kind of what I intended with the poll. Defensemen carry more value than wingers and I gave the Jets 2 proven wingers to compare to a prospect superstar defensemen and an unknown commodity (Nylander). Eichel and Scheifele should be a close comparison as is.

    Went with the Sabres because they have a defenseman in the package, and I'm not that enamored with Laine.

    I think the Sabres have the two best pieces here so I'd go with that

    Very slight edge to Buffalo, just because defensive prospects the calibre of Dahlin are like unicorns.

    May be biased but I am a BIG Schiefele fan and believer (who cant spell his name right ffs) and not so confident in Eichel as that go-to guy on a winning team.

    Tips the scales for me

    Tough poll.
    I'd prefer it if they both had a centre, a winger and a dman

    Buffalo easily, if Laine ever showed a glimmer of hope he could drive a line he may be higher. Pretty telling when 55 and The Cap dont want to play even strength w him.

    Jack/ Scheifele

    Dahlin
    Connor

    Nylander

    Laine

    I really don’t like that 2 of the jets players are wingers and all are forwards.

    Replaced Dahlin with Karlsson in my mind so I didnt have to guess with Dahlin and I'd take the Jets combo.

    He is a Laine troll, all he does is make the same baseless comment over and over again.

    I think right now it should be the Jets but could easily change depending on Dahlin & Nylander's progression

    Laine has more goals than Eichel in 50 lesser games but Eichel does surpass in the Plus /Minus -55 for Eichel compared to a +15 for Laine.

    Scheifele is everything you want from a 1C, Laine is already a 40 goalscorer after 2 seasons in the league and Connor can be a consistent 30 goal guy.

    I don’t see Eichel as an upgrade over Scheifele and Nylander hasn’t lit up the AHL yet let alone make the Sabres.

    Basically i have to choose between ~70 goals from the top 6 wings (possibly 80 if Laine can take the next step) or Dahlin, guy who hasn’t played a game in the league yet.

    He might be great but i like my team to have guys who can put the puck in the net. Wingers are less valuable but at the same time these two aren’t just any wingers. We’re talking one of the best shots in the game and a guy who is perfect for the modern fast game with his speed. And neither have hit their primes yet..

    Dahlin makes it tough, granted, but i’ll keep my trio.

    Erik Johnson had a ton of potential too. People were calling him a franchise player
