What is Philadelphia's trio?

MapleLeafsFan4Ever 12-31-2012 02:45 AM

My vote was for Jake Gardiner, Morgan Rielly, Matt Finn.

BonMorrison 12-31-2012 03:26 AM

Tough call between the Panthers, Islanders, and Maple Leafs.

I went with the Leafs.

Dolph Ziggler 12-31-2012 04:47 AM

Florida

Subban > Reilly
Beaulieu < Gardiner

Not sure why people would pick Toronto over Montreal.

Subban > Gardiner (both NHL defenseman, but Subban is one year older. Still he has an extra year of experience, a great playoff run and I would argue better defensively at this stage in development)

Reilly > Beaulieu (Both great defenseman but both scouts and myself agree that Reilly has higher upside going forward)

Finn =/> Tinordi (Finn is putting up an impressive OHL season while Tinordi is having an underwhelming first AHL season. They are very different types of defenseman though and hard to compare. I'd call it a draw)

Therefore, the comparison is a essentially a wash. Really based on preference if you ask me.

Tinordi is head and shoulders above Finn.

Lion 12-31-2012 05:14 PM

The next 3 should be Florida, Anaheim and Toronto

Wingsfan2965* 12-31-2012 06:09 PM

Just in case people were forgetting the Third Winged-wheel (Get it?) Ryan Sproul is now 3rd in goal scoring amongst OHL defensemen... Despite missing 17 games this season with a broken arm.

Substantiate this claim please.

Higher draft ranking, WJC participation, higher hf prospect rating, better bloodlines, more physically gifted, better intangibles (captained team to memorial cup last year). Tinordi made HF's propect rankings and Finn didn't so I know people agree with me.

Care to justify saying Finn is better than or equal to Tinordi?

EveryDay 12-31-2012 09:31 PM

Really? NYI and Toronto before MTL?

laundryman 12-31-2012 09:34 PM

Tough call between Florida and Toronto, went with the Panthers

UnrefinedCrude 12-31-2012 09:37 PM

Tough call, went with Florida.

Don't dislike anyone's 3, but there's definitely a few teams ahead of the curve.

Wingsfan2965* 12-31-2012 11:05 PM

Heh, I wanna play this game...

Smith and Gardiner are too close to call... Unless you want me to use "<=>" as symbols.
Ouellet < Reilly
Sproul > Finn

Yet nobody's freaking out for Detroit's trio...

Drydenwasthebest 01-01-2013 09:20 AM

I went with Montreal due to Subban, but I can make arguments for either Florida or the Islanders as well.

Wow, it would be a tough call. I admit to letting a bit of homerism sway my vote. Florida's trio is gorgeous...
