You may well be right. MJ has proven inconsistent and may be even somewhat injury prone. But I think MJ is the chosen one of the 2. I think MJ comes before MP no matter how you slice it. MP has his strengths yet has not seized a scoring C role yet... which says something to me.

I am sure George doesn't want to be wrong on another 1st and will devote many years (see Sarge) to prove it.

I think MP's role in the NHL will end up being a scoring 3C for 3 line teams, and most likely, emergency scoring C. He just doesn't quite have the size to be full time scoring C.
