Ennis vs. Gerbe vs. Adam

Who is going to have the better NHL career?

I'll leave it up to you to determine what "better" means. Stats may tell part of the story, but not the whole story. Stats, longevity, effectiveness, among other factors are things to consider.

I think Ennis. He has the speed, he has the creativity, he has the hands. He has enough size to survive the NHL game long term.

Gerbe at his intensity and size, I think he will wear down as he ages, and injuries could have a very devastating effect. Especially if he loses his speed. But if he's lucky enough to have a career as long as St. Louis, that would be cool to see.

Adam at his lack of speed, and current lack of physical play may turn him into a 3rd, 4th line guy in a few years. He has good instincts, and good hands. But he may get better and better and surprise me.

Luke Adam

He has been developing his power forward game and needs to shoot more often.

ennis will have as good of a career.

gerbe will have a better career with the sabres than ennis. i could see ennis being a more productive player on another team than he would on the sabres. Sometimes i wonder what everyone sees in adam.

My guess would be Ennis, as I think he will be productive offensively for his career. Tough, though, for me to dismiss Gerbe. If he can play like this for his entire career, it'll be him with the "best" NHL reign.

No slight on Adam, just a personal hunch based on the question posed.

Gerbe has been awesome for about a full calendar year now. Love it.

Either Ennis or Adam. I think Gerbe is a good player, but will never be great. The other two have potential to be great. If Ennis can shake off his Afinogenov like puck holding, he will pick it up.

Much as I'd love to quote Jame's response as well, I suppose I'll play along.

In the end it will be Ennis with the most points, and Gerbe with the much more memorable career.

Adam's played less than half a season combined so I'll reserve judgment there.

Adam I think is playing above his potential and we have been seeing that the last few games.

Hmmm...I would go with Ennis because he has the talent but it is Hard to dismiss Gerbe not sure he could net 80 points where Ennis has the tools to.

1A - Ennis
1B - Adam



C - Gerbe


Love the guys drive, but Gerbe is a step below the other two. Ennis has Briere potential. Adam has the potential to be a 70 point big center that this team desperately needs.

Ennis
Gerbe
Adam

Ennis has the skillset to be a top liner in the NHL, hopefully with experience the tendecies to "Afinogenov" the puck will dissipate a bit.

Gerbe's only true downfall is his size. But he makes up for it with tenacity and grit. The more he plays the better he gets, take that play in Ottawa for example....smashed into the boards, gets up grabs puck makes a play....that is what makes you successful.

Adam was hard to put below gerbe. He has the body, the hands and the vision to be an extremely successful player, and has shown flashes of being a two-way forward with his backchecking a few games back. My problem is he's slow and seems to run outta gas too quickly. In a few years if he's able to work on this he will overtake gerbe, and a longshot ennis. But right now, based on what I see, thats how I see them.

I do like how Jame stated it tho.

Big strong centerman... Soft hands... Needs to put his skating together, but if he did he could be a 60-70 pt center.

If I were to guess, I'd say Adam just edges out Ennis. Then Gerbe.

Adam is not physical enough to be called a power forward(yet), IMO

I think it's far from safe to assume that Gerbe, of that group, will lack for longevity due to injuries. He has a far better build than Ennis. I'd be much more worried about Ennis getting long-term injuries.

As for my answer, I don't really feel comfortable picking between Gerbe and Ennis, because there are so many X-factors to how Ennis could develop, and just how well Gerbe's offense comes along at this level is another big question. I'll go with Ennis, I suppose, which means I'm leaning more towards "best case scenario" here.

Gerbe will be most beloved by fans, even if he doesnt have the stats. Its his intangibles. (Peca, Kaleta, Ray) He is not getting lit up on any regular basis for body to wear down. In fact, I would predict that Ennis will be more brittle than Gerbe.

Have to see Adam play with other than our two studs to see if he gets the same production/chances. He may end up with the most goals.

Ennis aint no slouch.

I say...Gerbe. He is just a pleasure to watch.
