Alex Galchenyuk vs. Ryan Nugent Hopkins
 
There is a thread on the trade forum which has turned into Habs fans and Oilers fans saying who they think is going to be better, with each saying that their respective player will be. Some also say it is a wash and that Galchenyuk will be as good as RNH, which I don't think is the case. I think Gally will have a great career being more physical while putting up less points (60-75) IF he reaches his full potential. RNH could put up a 100+ point season IF he reached his full potential IMO.

Who do you think will be better in the NHL and why?

Better doesn't always mean better point production. Take into account physicality, injuries, skill, size and everything before passing judgement. Hypothetically, Would you sacrifice 20-30 points of production for a bigger, hard-hitting and physical player?

DISCLAIMER: I am not asking who is better right now. Just simply who do you think will have the bigger impact with whichever team they play with.

Edmonton fans have to stop fishing for compliments about their young core. Really they must. OP knew the answer when he created this thread.

domdo345 11-22-2012 03:02 PM

stupid poll is stupid. One played last year in the NHL while the other was sidelined due to injury in the OHL. Maybe you let gally have an NHL season under his belt before making that poll?

Hanta Yo 11-22-2012 03:03 PM

Ryan Nugent Hopkins.

WarriorOfGandhi 11-22-2012 03:03 PM

Galchenyuk because RNH is injury-prone

Actually if either of you bothered to go look at the thread itself, its a pretty heated debate with good points coming from both sides to support their respective arguments.

This is it: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1296037

I am not "fishing for compliments" or anything. I know what we have has great potential. I just want to see opinions of other teams and members on the board. Not everything people do on this board has to have some conniving scheme behind it. I don't think fans of any team need other fans patting them on the back for knowing they have good players.

Yea cause the guy that missed an entire season in the OHL isnt. Terrible argument.
:laugh:

Tralfamadore 11-22-2012 03:16 PM

Galchenyuk because RNH is unproven

1972 11-22-2012 03:21 PM

Galchenyuk because he has more points than RNH this year. Almost double

pahlsson 11-22-2012 03:23 PM

galchenyuk ainec

Analyzer 11-22-2012 03:24 PM

Galchenyuk, because he's Canadian. Take THAT Ryan Nugent Hopkinsov.

Seriously, though... The Nuge 11 times out of 10 at this point, but that's not to say I'm not extremely, overly thrilled to have Galchenyuk. A potential number 1 centre who's got tremendously skilled ? Yes, I'm quite happy and no, that's not a banana in my pocket.

MonsterSurge 11-22-2012 03:25 PM

Nugent-Hopkins because he...well...I just wanted to pick him.

Wow are you serious! The level of play in the OHL is nowhere the level in the AHL. Galchenyuk is playing against teenagers while RNH is playing against full grown men. Even with that said RNH is still well over a PPG.









:sarcasm:

I don't think there was one post in that entire thread that claimed Galy would be better than RNH, although there were some that argued they could be comparable.

Seems like self aggrandizing Oilers prospects polls are all the rage these days.

Exactly.

This actually became a poll? :help::shakehead

Everyone knows the obvious answer, even the creator.

Habs 4 Life 11-22-2012 03:28 PM

wow awesome poll

mytor4* 11-22-2012 03:51 PM

I picked Galchenyuk because i wanted too.
Going by RHN last yr in Junior and Gallys which should be this season i would say it's a wash.Gally is on a higher PPG than waht RNH ended with.
All things being equal Gally >= to RNH.;)

BudMovin* 11-22-2012 03:52 PM

I voted Gally just to stick it to the OP's obvious attempt at stroking his ego.

Noob616 11-22-2012 03:52 PM

Man THE NUGE IS SO GOOD. The big 4 and Schultz and Dubnyk are the best young core in the league of all time. Oilers are gonna be such a force for so long omg.

Happy?

5RingsAndABeer 11-22-2012 03:56 PM

OP didn't make this poll out of the blue. It's from the trade forum thread where it was suggested the difference between RNH and Galchenyuk was small (or negligible).

Rhaego 11-22-2012 04:01 PM

RNH

This poll isn't fair

bp spec 11-22-2012 04:06 PM

Rnh.

Jerk Store 11-22-2012 04:07 PM

fans of both teams need too many compliments in recent polls for my liking.

But everyone still seemed to agree that RNH was better, or at least not worse. This poll makes zero sense. Typical self aggrandizing.
