Zucker vs Nyquist
 
Who's going to be the better NHL player? They're both the same size, both should have been drafted earlier, and both have high level skill. They're scoring at roughly the same clip in the AHL. Nyquist might be the better playmaker and Zucker the better scorer.

In college, Nyquist outscored Zucker the one year they were both there.

Nyquist: 18+33=51 in 36 games.
Zucker: 23+22=45 in 40 games.

Of course, this is hardly fair because it's a junior vs a freshman. We could point out both that Nyquist's freshman year was worse (13+19=32 in 38 games) and that the WCHA is probably a stronger league than Hockey East. However, Nyquist's sophomore year was no doubt better than Zucker's. Zucker went 22+24=46 in 38 games and Nyquist lead the nation in scoring with 19+42=61 in 39 games. So I'm not sure college stats tell the tale.

Zucker is younger so he gets the edge there. Also gets to play with some nice talent.

But whatever, homer vote for Nyquist :).

Why do you guys think Nyquist is better than Zucker? (the poll is 16 to 0 in favor of Nyquist)

If you've watched both, I'd like to hear your observations.

Gus has a little higher end skill. Really with a lot of the improvements Tatar has made he is pretty similar to Zucker. More of a goal scorer, skates hard plays with some sandpaper. A very good player, just think Nyquist has higher end skill, he holds on to the puck and makes things happen. Zucker is going to be a first shoot player the majority of the time. Also as much as I like Zuckers whole game, Gus is better defensively in my opinion and will continue to be.
