Demitra is younger, bigger, stronger, tougher, and scores similarly to Palffy.

Discuss.

My discussion:

Keep them both!

Palffy is better. If he wasnt so injury prone, hed be a regular top 5 point getter. He is cleary more talented and has better vision. Demitra also has played on better teams.

IF Palffy was healthy 100%, Id take him clearly over Demitra but with Demitra being healthier than Palffy by a lot its quite close.

My decision: Palffy is better.

Palffy is flashier than Demitra.

He has a little better touch offensively.

Demitra physically is much tougher than Palffy.
Demita can take care of himself.

I think I give a slight edge to Demita overall.

Palffy is by far better. His passing skills are sublime, and nobody can float them better. He can also be a sniper when need be, and when we aquired him, that's what the Kings thought they got. He's truly amazing to watch, and the players on his team have just as much fun watching him. Demitra has great speed and has been a consistent player...........which is very important, but overall skills, I just don't think he's as good as Palffy.

Palffy's only knock is that he's brittle, but the greatest player to ever play this game was also a wuss.

Sounds like someone is trying to justify losing Palffy, and making it look like the Kings upgraded if they do. Palffy is easily better, and I like Demitra.

They are roughly the same, for reasons others have mentioned. The only problem is the Kings should be looking to IMPROVE, not just stay the same. That's why they have to resign Palffy & Frolov...

cant really compare demitra and palffy. its too situational. as stated before, palffy would be better if he wasnt so injury prone. true, hes smaller than demitra, but i feel palffy is a lot more versatile. i mean, is there ever a time when you dont want palffy on ice? you can use him on the power play and the penalty kill.

but then again, demitra doesnt sit out so much. so it all really depends on how you ask the question
