    Huge fan of both but this is just easily Makar for me. You’re taking about an elite minute muncher who is excellent at everything. Girard is good defensively, a little undersized, but good offensively as well. Lucky to have both to be honest.

    As I voted a year ago - Makar.

    It's a treat to have Girard on this team. He is a cerebral, silky smooth Dman who also munches minutes, pushes the play, and plays well defensively. And his contract is sweet.

    That said, Makar is just plain special. He's something else entirely. He's a beast and I can't wait to see what kind of heights he can reach.

    Oh this is a bump. For a minute there I got excited - not in a good way - thinking wow, Girard is really playing that well???!?!? (This bummed me out as a Preds fan). But now I see.

    Avs are in a real sweet spot right now. They've got Mackinnon locked up so under market for so long, and they've got so many of these great pieces in place, a dominant top line and these top young D, and did a great job shoring up some of their depth... this team scares me. :(

    "So far" being the operative phrase...as a) sample size & b) Cale's still figuring things out and isn't making the full impact that he is capable of. Some things have started clicking for him over the past couple of weeks, but he still has a lot more to his game to show. He's more explosive than Keith, so his offensive upside is higher, but the careful way he goes about building his transition game from his own zone out -- at least when he's comfortable utilizing his entire skillset -- is very Keith-esque...if that makes sense.

    His adaptation to the NCAA & AJHL levels followed a trend that we are seeing repeating itself IMO; in that his production & offense translated quickly at those previous level, but it wasn't until year 2 that he truly dominated all over the ice and implemented his full skillset, while taking on even more responsibilities.

    Makar and it's really not even close. I have a very hard time seeing Girard ever be a #1 dman
