I feel like Okposo would do better on the Canucks than Simmonds, so I picked him

I've only watched Okposo when he plays the Flyers and from whatever highlights he finds his way into. I gotta go with Simmonds, he's solid defensively, great at forechecking, and is a great player to have in front of the goalie slamming home rebounds

Definitely KO. Simmonds is crazy overrated on this board.

These guys don't really play similar games in my mind. That said, I think Okposo has a higher ceiling but I'm not sure he reaches it. I would take Simmonds.

So close for me that took even. Simmonds obviously had better year last year but from now on I think they are around the same.

I think Okposo has the higher ceiling for sure, but I give Simmonds a very slight edge right now only cause he had the better year last year. Though, to Okposo's credit, he started out the year very slow last year and even got put in the press box and then came back and had a career high in goals.

I think we have yet to see the best of KO

Voted even, but it's hard to say. If Simmonds can keep putting up the same numbers he did last year, I'd take him when you factor in grit/defensive play. But Okposo has more skill and a higher ceiling, and a has been more consitent production-wise thus far.

The question is, who is better right now?

I'll still take Simmonds for right now.

Okposo is better, so I voted him.

I'd prefer Simmonds on my team though.
