This -should- be a closer vote because Benn is an incredible player. But, Duchene has SO much ceiling room left.

Duchene's ceiling is tantalizing.

I like Benn a lot though.

That is really faulty logic.

All I meant in the pre-cursor is that I figured Duchene would take this easily because Benn is one of the more underrated players in the league -and- most importantly, potential is a far too weighted attribute on this board.

Both are fairly even, IMO, now. Both have untapped potential, but Duchene has more.

I'm sorry, I should've stated it clearer. But, then again, it wasn't that hard to realize what I meant.

I know what you mean. Duchene isn't miles ahead of Benn but still clearly. That doesn't mean the poll should be close is all I'm saying. I'm not trying to pick on you because everyone does this.

I think you'd have to go with Benn right now. He's just too dominant already, and until Duchene regains form, it's Benn and it's not really close. Benn looks like he'll hit his ceiling soon while Duchene is a few years away. Duchene is 2 years younger though.

Benn has uncapped potential. I don't see how Duchene could have more. Just because he was a 5th round pick doesn't mean he can't be your team's best player.

I'm going to go against the grain here and take Benn. Love the guy's game, and I think his top-end, a point-per-gamer with two-way ability, is identical to Duchene's so the fact that he seems like a surer bet makes me lean towards him.

I love Benn. I have a feeling some people think too highly of Duchene. I mean, he has tons of potential but Benn is already a force on the ice and IMO will only improve.

I can see why people would vote for Duchene though.

So what's the hype with Duchene?

I have a feeling if Duchene was a 5th round pick and Benn was 3rd overall this poll would be the exact opposite.

Duchene had 55 points in his 18 year old season, and 67 in his 19 year old season.

Benn was still in junior for both of those seasons. He's 2 years older than Duchene and has yet to reach the 67 point mark. And I like Benn a lot.
