Fantasy draft:first pick for your team?
 
Imagine your about to pick your first player for your team,and you have to pick between Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and OEL.Which one of these players do you choose?

LatvianTwist 01-01-2013 01:38 AM

Ekman-Larsson.

capitalsrock 01-01-2013 01:44 AM

The franchise defenseman.

Benny FTW 01-01-2013 01:46 AM

OEL. i

Gritzky98 01-01-2013 04:18 AM

RNH because hes better

Kane One 01-01-2013 04:38 AM

I voted RNH, but I change my mind. I think the Rangers could use another defenseman.

maroon 6 01-01-2013 05:33 AM

RNH all day every day

I love OEL... and you probably can't go wrong with either one I picked RNH. Kid could be an offensive beast.

This, steady the rear and get a guy that can move the puck forward as well.

OEL is great and most likely a franchise defenseman. But it's Nugent Hopkins.

Vankiller Whale 01-01-2013 03:19 PM

For Vancouver, OEL, but I could definitely see other teams taking RNH.

The premise of this poll is which of these two guys would you choose to *start* your team with in a fantasy draft. You wouldn't be adding either of them to your existing team.

Personally, I choose Nugent-Hopkins. I think successful teams are best built around an elite centerman. I like Ekman-Larsson a lot, but people are getting a little too enamored with him in my opinion.

sid49 01-01-2013 03:50 PM

I think OEL is gonna be a beast, but to take a defencemen over RNH they'd have to be a Pietrangelo type defencemen, and I don't think OEL is there. No knock on Ekman Larson though, 30 teams in the league would love to have him.

The Nose 01-01-2013 03:54 PM

RNH for me. I prefer to build around an elite center than defenseman.

Agreed

Devils Trap 01-01-2013 05:08 PM

Oel..

korpedo 01-02-2013 10:02 AM

As a coyotes fan it was still hard to pass up RNH but I prefer the franchise D man

5RingsAndABeer 01-02-2013 10:21 AM

When comparing elite players I don't think going purely off position is fair. I'd pick RNH because I think he'll become one of the top 10 players in the league.

zytz 01-02-2013 10:51 AM

Both great players, but center > D for me

Backlund 01-02-2013 01:10 PM

RNH. I've watched the Flames for too long without a real #1 center. If I had the chance to build a team from scratch, center would be the first position I would choose.

ponder 01-02-2013 02:22 PM

RNH for me. Much safer choice IMO, and I think he has higher upside too.

Also this (except replace "Flames" with "Leafs"):

The Nuge

MastuhNinks 01-03-2013 10:37 AM

OEL is great and all, but this should be RNH pretty easily.

CanadienShark 01-03-2013 03:38 PM

On the Habs, give me OEL. He could be phenomenal with Subban in the future with possibly Beaulieu and Tinordi on the second pairing. On my sharks, I'd like RNH. Can never go wrong with centre depth, especially with Couture able to play wing, and Joe and Marleau starting to age. RNH and Hertl as one - two punch with Couture and Pavelski on Nuge's wing......... :)

5RingsAndABeer 01-03-2013 04:06 PM

Why did you mention "your team" if it's a fantasy draft? You're confusing everyone.

For a full fantasy draft, I'd take RNH first.

To add to the Oilers, I'd probably add an OEL instead of a second RNH, but I'm not sure.
