Liles vs Hamhuis

now and in the future, which would you rather have?

bear in mind, this is public poll...and if any Avs or Preds fans vote, their homerism shall be apparent. this poll is for fans of the OTHER 28 teams in the league

I voted Hamhuis, I haven't watched much of him this season, however some fellow posters who aren't Preds fans, but I still consider to have accurate opinions are very high on him.

Liles is immensely underrated on this board, so I'm expecting comments from the ignorants such as "Hamhuis is a zillion times better than Liles will ever be." It's hard not to respect what he's done: made Skoula AND Morris expendable.

I like Liles a lot, but I think Hamhuis is better now and will be better in the future.

Hamhuis.

Haven't seen much of both, but from what I hear Hamhuis is a better two-way player.

Considering the lengthy debate I had regarding Liles and Hamhuis around a month ago, I suppose I should weigh in. As someone that has seen both a lot, I have to go with Hamhuis. Better all around player that has the physical side necessary to excel. If he gets better with his positioning, Hamhuis will be a top player in this league in a few years. Liles is no slouch either; he has superior offensive instincts, good positioning and decision-making, and moves the puck extremely well. Liles only issue is with size on occasion. Plus Hamhuis is like 3-4 years younger and is playing a huge role for his team at a young age. Weighing everything, I take Hamhuis, but Liles has been exceptional as well. Just think Hamhuis has a brighter future given each player's total package.

I want to know which three people voted for Liles!
I won't criticize because I've been guilty of posting lopsided polls in the past (Briere vs. Lecavalier), but this one is silly!

wow, i didn't expect the poll to be this lopsided(and all but one vote is from avs fans). maybe i overrate liles(definitely don't underrate hamhuis, he's easily one of my favorite preds, and i think he's just going to keep getting better). anyway, i guess my question is answered.

I voted Liles, though I like Hamhuis down the road, my Canucks could use Liles in there here and now more than Hamhuis.

screw that Miz....If the canucks could take either, I'd go with Hamhuis...I like Liles, he's good, but man....Hamhuis is just soooooooooo gorgeous as a prospect. Deadly even.
