There's nobody on Chicago that's a 100 point or generational player really. There's a couple of relatively high echelon point producers on there, but they're a great team because they're well-rounded and well-built from good management. Guys like Taylor Hall, RNH, Eberle, and potentially Yakupov aren't much worse if any worse then Patrick Kane and Toews. Problem with Edmonton is that's all they have and their management is probably the worst I've ever seen for a franchise. Like, ever. Even with other teams Colorado has managed to make the playoffs in the recent past and they're on the upswing after drafting guys like Mackinnon and Landeskog that aren't any better then the top guys in Edmonton. Yet they're not nearly as bad of a team or franchise.
