That's where judgment comes in, I guess. It wasn't an easy choice for me in choosing McIlrath vs Zuccarello, and it will be an even harder choice in choosing Fasth vs Hagelin.
Personally, I like upside more than I like safety. It's pretty easy to sign a Fedotenko-style role player who will do a good job for little money. But to sign a star as a UFA, you have to always overpay him.
But not all safe players are like Feds... some are like Dubinsky. And not all high-risk players are like Savard, some have a max potential for 65 points. I guess you just have to look at what you've got and what are the odds of each player making it.
