That's an impossible question because not everything can be shown with stats and you live and die by stats. It's just my opinion from watching both players since they joined the NHL. Now that Handzus has slowed down this season, Simmonds play has fallen off. Simmonds is now getting PP time and hasn't shown me anything that shows he deserves it.

Brown hits, draws penalties, backs the defense off the blue line with his skating and is the captain of a young team. I don't see Simmonds improving much from what we see today. Perfect player to have and is definitely needed for the Kings to win the Stanley Cup, but if I had to pick between them, I pick Brown every time.

You are free to disagree and I'm sure others do. Brown has always been a love/hate type of player on these boards.
