Am I the only one who would take a healthy Palffy over a healthy Mogilny?

Beyond their two best seasons, they’re practically identical in terms of per-game production when healthy.
Palffy takes this by having the demonstrably better peak.
What?? When was Palffy second in PPG? Which season is that..? I don't recall Palffy doing anything of that magnitude except one of his first seasons with the Kings but I will need to look it up.
Edit: Just realized the season you put him second in PPG he played less than half the season (35 games)
I personally would not consider that, but I guess it is preferences.
Mogilny's best season he was fourth in PPG (The year he led in goals scored with Selanne.
Anyway as I have said, I think Mogilny was the better player at his peak and had the better career overall. To play 1114 NHL games and collect 1118 points is a highly admirable feat.
That is not that I don't consider Palffy a great player, he is very underrated on these boards and it was a shame he had to spend his early seasons at the Islanders. He kept that franchise alive though.
