Which player...

There are four players here, all with hypothetical stats and positions.

Which one would you want if you are starting a team?

Player A- LW, 70 G, 45 A, 115 pts.--elite sniper

Player B- C, 40 G, 80 A, 120 pts.--elite playmaker

Player C- D, 25 G, 40 A, 25:00 TOI average.---two way defenseman

Player D- G, .940 save %, 1.82 GAA

No, but I had a feeling someone would ask that.

I'm basically asking if you want an awesome sniper, a playmaker, a solid two way defenseman, or a great goalie, if you're trying to build a team.

Ovechkin, Crosby, Phaneuf or Green, Mason

Edit: You should just ask if people would want a sniper, a playmaker, a solid two-way defenseman, or a great goalie so you don't get schmucks like me making these kinds of posts.

The stats are made up.

I'm not trying to start a pissing match.

I'm just asking what type of stud player you'd personally want if you were building a team.

Well yeah, considering this concept (Player A vs. Player B, totally random players we swear!) is pretty common amongst Pens and Caps fans.

Voted A, by the way.

assuming the goalie's stats is mostly based on the stellar defence in front of him (and usually it is), Ill go with the elite playmaker who even scores 40 while hes at it.

Player D stats is too good. He would be the best goaltender EVER.

Assuming he plays a truckload of games, hes GAA also means that his TEAM totally owns defensivley .

D - > A - > ?

3rd choice would depend on the type dman, is he dynamic, always creating chances, always a threat whenever he's on the ice, or is he a PPQB and gets 40-50 of those 65 points on the PP.

Close between A & D. If the goalie is playing more than 60 games, than D.

franchise d-man is the best to have, imo.
but franchise d-men play more than 25 minutes, and are generally above 10-20 in +/-. so C may not be a franchise d-man.

the goalie might be the best. hasek didn't even get to .940.

Goalie. If you iced any of the hypothetical four players with an otherwise average supporting cast the goalie's team is going to win the most.

I'd say the goalies numbers suffer the most with an average supporting cast.

I never trust stats... you can make them say damn near whatever you want whenever you want.

I need names and I need to see the player in action. There are very few (if any) people that will take Gonchar's last 10 years over Pronger's, even though Gonchar has more impressive numbers.

Player D. Those stats are unheard of in the NHL.

Suffer what? OP said these are their stats.

Kills the question if you have to account for how much the players' teammates contributed to their stats.
