I'm not skewing anything in my favour, I'm completely impartial in my assessment and as such have no "favour" to speak of.

I'm just simply saying that both look to be fantastic prospects with high upside. I don't see one distinguishably better than the other at this point, so all else being equal, I'll take the guy who has the physical attributes that generally give a defenseman an advantage in the NHL over the guy who has physical attributes that seem to be very rare in the NHL and thus likely an indication that those attributes are detrimental to overall play.

I really didn't think we'd still be talking about this at this point. It was a very innocent and fair comment.
