Nik is more talented, which is more important.

They're both third-line players at the moment.

The difference is, Nik has top-6 talent and Poni doesn't. Ponikarovsky will never be anything more than a solid 3rd line winger. His ceiling is Antropov's baseline.

The injury thing is a good point, but it's no reason to say a grinder like Ponikarovsky is a better player than Antropov, because he isn't.
all your opinions and my differ. However, if you look at what I said, I never said Poni was a better player. I said I believe he will be a better player in the long run over Nik. And I hold to that. I'm not going to agrue with your opinion, but its different from mine.

One thing I will say though is I don't understand how you think Poni does not have a better shot than Nik. He's got a good heavy, hard shot, he just needs to get better contol of it. What is special about Nik's shot?
