Simple question, who is the best winger in the NHL under the age of 23?
I think Filip Forsberg juuuuussssttt turned 24
what about the best winger born on a Tuesday when playing in a Saturday afternoon game before 3pm during the 2nd period?
So you’d take him over Pasta and Rantanen?
Pastrnak no doubt
Pasta or Rantanen
Damn...Nylander was born on a Wednesday.
Pastrnak or Rantanen, both are great.
60-40 on Pasta.
Pasta is a highlight machine and Rants is turning into a poweforward, both can go +ppg.
My top three:
Is Laine the best U23 winger on his team????
The guy just scored 44 goals at 19... that's FAR from "lol" worthy.
Close call between any of Rantannen/Pastrnak/Laine with Marner just behind IMO.
You watch Pasta, Rantanen, or Marner play and you will see dynamic game changing players consistently creating their own offense and getting chances. Laine is a different story, truly elite shot but when you watch him play he often looks useless out there if he's not getting his shot off. Laine is not in the same tier as any of these players and putting him above Marner is indeed lol worthy. Teams have figured out that if you don't let Laine get his shot off clean, then he isn't much of a threat because he is incapable of creating time and space for himself.
Pastrnak hands down.
I won’t say Meier is better than Pasta, but dang the kid is starting to blossom. Honorable mention!
Well this just isn't true at all. You dont get 44 goals from just having a great shot, not even close.
This is the one.
No, but you can probably get 35 of them that way.
Close but I’d give it to Pasta
