Yeah I don't think there was a world of difference between them at that time. And they were so dynamic together too.
I do know Kariya was more highly regarded at the time, though.
My opinion is only that Kariya was younger, still improving and had more upside. He (and we) really got robbed of what was shaping up to be a special career by Suter.
Guy went 2/2 gooning Canadian stars and derailing them.
