You can't go wrong with either one, but you have to remember the following:

1) When the high scoring winger gets older, the scoring doesn't come as easily and more often than not, they end up being exposed for their lack of defensive presence and play very little.

2) A two-way center will usually have a longer career because once the offensive game begins to dwindle, they always have the defensive game they can fall back on. You've got a guy who essentially can take all the dirty draws and be out on the ice protecting that one goal lead in crucial games.

With the way the league is moving, the two way center is probably more valuable. The high scoring, high octane offensive game is becoming a thing of the past again as more and more teams are adopting the more defensively structured and grind out type game. Pretty soon, everyone on the team will be strictly two-way players.
