Would you rather have the duo drafted in 2013 or 2014?
2013 duo very easily for me.
Both 2014 guys are better imo
2014 duo very easily for me.
Really love ehlers and nylander , two of my favorites up and coming players.
I see similar value, but I think the 2013 pair have the higher ceiling and that tips the scales for me. Always thought Drouin had the potential to be a superstar in the NHL. I think this season may be his time to become one of the NHL's brightest stars. Mackinnon should bounce back and get back on track too.
Interesting to see it so close. Nylander and Ehlers as player archetypes do remind me quite a bit of Drouin and MacKinnon. The draft pedigree is a bit different whereas Nylander and Ehlers have arguably had better results lately so I was very curious about how their power levels would be perceived.
Jets and Leafs homers working together? Is this still HF?
What's a power level? Please tell me it's not that dragon ball z thing.
I like 2014 for their achievable ceilings but if everything hit, 2013 would be crazy.
Mack and Drouin have crazy upsides, though they might not translate.
Drouin + Mackinnon would be like Datsyuk Zetterberg line jr. Quite a bit better than the other pair
If we are putting them on the same team, its easily Drouin+MacKinnon.. Man were they magic
Drafted with higher expectations, but they haven't proven they're better than Nylander and Ehlers. Willie also didn't **** and moan over playing in the AHL for a season to help his development and demand a trade. I don't think it's fair to make the comparison today when Colorado just had a horrible season and Drouin's break out year doesn't even result in him matching either Ehlers or Nylander's totals. It's pretty slanted and favored towards the only info we know, that Ehlers and Nylander were better last season. If this is a poll based solely on potential and the assumption that all 4 players reach it then I could see people voting Mack and Drouin, but not based on the results we current have.
Drouin and MacKinnon for me.
Good poll. If I were starting a franchise with this choice and had to roll the dice, I'd go with Mac and Drouin. I think the potential there is greater. I really think Mac would do so much better on any other team.
Exactly. What would the scouters say for these players? Whose total readings would be higher?
2014 duo very easy choice.
This one's interesting.
Nathan MacKinnon is probably the overall best player, and only real NHL centre of the bunch. So that makes a bit of a difference. All are really excellent players though; this is a solid poll.
More or less:
Do you want 2 gifted offensive wingers
Do you want 1 gifted offensive centre and 1 gifted offensive winger.
Well if NHL stops once and for all and players wont develop then maybe I see your point. However this current situation doesnt last long as these about 20 y Olds continue their progress.
The younger guys are going to improve too. I just don't think Mack and Drouin are in a position to challenge the offensive production of Ehlers and Nylander moving forward. Maybe it doesn't mean they're the worse pair, but they won't stand out in the NHL playing for a poorly managed Colorado team or Montreal who I'm not even sure has a true #1 Center to play Drouin with.
Went with 'Too close to call'
Coin flip IMO
It was fun to watch those 3 players for a couple of years with the Mooseheads.
Based on what we've seen so far I'd have to go with Nylander and Ehlers but I expect Drouin and MacKinnon to bounce back over the next couple years.
