Datsyuk may be the poster boy but there is no way he is better than Giroux. Also Schenn > Helm and Briere and Zetterburg are a lot closer than you think.

Philly is #2 pretty easily.

At best you can convince me Giroux and Datsyuk are even. Datsyuks ahead defensively and on par offensively although this past season Giroux broke out and may have a slight edge. Schenn and his whopping 18 points in 54 games is not better than Helm. Schenns obviously going to be better in the long run but Helm is arguably the fastest in the league and arguably the best PKer while providing similar offense.

Briere is not better offensively then Zetterberg and isnt close defensively.

Datsyuk=Giroux
Zetterberg>Giroux (bigger edge then youre letting on)
Helm>Schenn
Abdelkader<Couts

Detroits got Philly beat

Philadelphia. Though I don't think they have their C's like that. More like G-Schenn/Briere-Couts-Talbot.

Put Philadelphia above LA because their bottom Cs are better. And above Boston cus of Giroux.

And above Detroit because if Dats or Z go down, we are screwed. Philadelphia has more depth if they suffer injuries.

Philly. If you break it down, there is no team beside Pittsburgh who can top them.

Boston, Detroit, and LA are the next 3 not necessarily in that order.

The only problem with this is that I don't think that those players all play center at the same time. I think you have to look at Boston and see they have at least 2 players who play center who are better than their 4th line center and one of them is probably the best offensive player on the team.
In that respect I can see how someone would pick one of the other teams.

I don't get all the Philly love. Is it because they have two hyped prospects at 3 & 4? I'm going with LA then Detroit.

Having Giroux doesn't hurt.
