I think it's to close to call at this point because they both seem like two sides of the same coin. When Tarasenko comes over and plays, than I can reach a decision. But right now, I don't want to call it yet.
I very seriously doubt you will see Tarasenko be as physical as Landeskog in a single game, let alone in general. Tarasenko is rock solid and he goes hard to the net, but Landeskog is a tough, punishing player. He hits a lot and does it well. As far as two-way play and physicality go, it's unarguably in Landeskog's favor. They're both very young, but if Tarasenko is to equal or surpass him in impact, it's going to be through puck control, scoring chances, and point production.
