I view Tarasenko as a potential PPG player, while Landeskog is a perennial 65-70ish point player with great leadership, hitting, defense, etc.

Landeskog has proven himself in NHL. Tarasenko not yet.

People seems to underrate Tarasenko's leadership. He was captain of WJC gold medal winning team in 2011, Kuznetsov told to media that Tarasenko was the best captain he ever had. Also alternative captain for Sibir in 2011-12.

Tarasenko has 1.35 PPG in KHL this season. It's fourth best. Only Mozyakin, Kovalchuk and Malkin have more points/game. Radulov, Bäckström, Datsyuk, Oveckin etc are behind Tarasenko. At same time LAndeskog has 0.6 PPG in Allsvenskan, Swedish second best hockey league.

But who do I rather take? Both... I would love to have either of them in my team. Really good hockey players.

Actually Ovechkin is tied in ppg and Bäckström is higher. Landeskog's points in Allsvenskan are kinda irrelevant since he has already proven he's a good NHL player.
Anze Kopitar is at 1.14 ppg while Mikael Backlund is at 1.56. It means nothing.

This Tarasenko hype is off the charts

I'll take the rookie of the year and the youngest captain in NHL history

They're close enough to me that I'd rather the younger left wing than the right wing simply due to the Oilers' depth chart.

Meh, I'm not exactly blown away by Landeskog but he's the safe bet here as far as NHL careers go.

I take Landeskog. I could also see him breaking out to 30 goals next season too. Right now he has a 8.5 shooting %. Most players who scored 20 had 10-12 shooting %. Now that he has gotten a season under his belt I bet we see his shot get even better against NHL goalies.

Landeskog for me, proven and complete, along with great leadership.

I don't think Brian Bellows won the Calder?

I'll take the NHL proven Landeskog over Tarasenko, at least right now.

Until Tarasenko shows that he is actually capable of producing at the NHL level, it's really hard to justify selecting him at this point.

Would like to see him in the NHL for a full season before I can pick.

Landeskog is already an upper echelon player. No sense comparing him to Tarasenko who has yet to play a game.

I'm going with Landeskog. He reminds me of a more physical, winger-version of Jonathan Toews.

But ye, I would agree Landeskog is a bit more proven at this point. But Tarasenko looks to me like a more dangerous player with the puck.

Really? Rookie of the year against a guy who hasn't played a game in NHL? A bit?

Proven isn't restricted only to NHL ice.

Yes really. Tarasenko has 3 more years than him at pro level. Or do they not count for some reason in the world of hockey?
