Ilya Kovalchuk vs Patrick Kane
 
Who would you rather have?

deytookerjaabs 04-02-2013 07:04 PM

Uh oh.

TorstenFrings 04-02-2013 07:04 PM

Really depends on your centers. With Malkin and Crosby, I'd take a scorer 100 times out of 100. But others may like a teeny tiny playmaker and if you do, you can't do much better than Kane.

kovy

JinzoBlaze 04-02-2013 07:42 PM

I rather have Kovy... Slightly.,, he's more well rounded and just young enough to tip the scales, almost went Patty.

bdawg1989* 04-02-2013 07:45 PM

Patrick Kane. He's a proven winner. Kovalchuk isn't.

CanadienShark 04-02-2013 08:07 PM

Kovy for sure. Great scorer, great two way player, has great size, workhorse, leader, good work ethic...

Kane has broken out this season and appears to now be the better offensive player, with better numbers (by quite a bit) despite worse linemates, less PP time, and less ES icetime as well if I'm not mistaken.

I take Kane. Younger and probably a bit better at this point.

TheeNorthStar 04-02-2013 08:15 PM

Ever since hes picked up defensive game.. Ill take Kovalchuk.

Trance Kuja 04-02-2013 08:15 PM

Kane.

Machinehead 04-02-2013 08:36 PM

For one year, Kovalchuk.

For the rest of their careers, Kane easily.

CRSeven 04-02-2013 08:59 PM

Kovalchuk.

Same offensive ability as Kane (Yes, I know, Kane is having a better season) and he's underrated defensively IMO; he's a fantastic two-way winger.

Kovy is the best winger in the league IMO.

Bad argument. Kovy was on a terrible thrashers team for most of his career. 2nd season he's with the devils he makes it to the cup playing at what was probably 30% of what he could really do because of his injury.

Buckets and Gloves 04-02-2013 09:29 PM

Kovalchuck.

Feel Kovalchuck is a top 10 player, Patty Kane a top 20

AKL 04-02-2013 09:31 PM

Kane. Younger, better contract, talent is very close.

EscapeGoat 04-02-2013 09:32 PM

Kovalchuk

So by that logic Adam Burish is better than Kovalchuk too. Ok.

Dolph Ziggler 04-02-2013 09:42 PM

Much rather have Kovalchuk.

aemoreira1981 04-02-2013 09:50 PM

If you need a tying goal, Patrick Kane. But if you need someone who can play 25-27 minutes a game (his season high this year is 30 minutes - in a regulation game), power play, and penalty kill (to be fair, Kovalchuk usually plays the point on the power play) and who is a bruiser and can fght, it is Ilya Kovalchuk.

The Newfoundlander 04-02-2013 09:51 PM

Patrick Kane. Can't help it. I've had a major man crush on Kane ever since he was drafted.

On the other hand I don't like Kovalchuk at all.

Kane's better regardless and underrated around here.

Kovy is also very clutch.

Kane shows up for the big games.

Kovalchuk doesn't.

Kane, not close.

TAnnala 04-03-2013 07:04 AM

I take Kovalchuk. He is more well rounded. Kane has one of the best hand-pairs in the world but that pretty much is all he has better. Kovalchuk is more durable, has larger skill-set on offense and is actually surprisingly good 200ft player. They are relatively close but i wan't Kovy.
You can never have too much goal scorers.

Didn't Kovy decide the final against Canada in World championships once? Certainly SCF is bigger but Kovy isn't a no-show guy...
