Girardi, not a very difficult choice.

Girardi right now, but Johnson could be better. Voted Girardi.

Girardi easily right now. Superior defensive player and can still put up ~30 points so EJ's edge offensively isn't that large (so far).

In the future, if I were building a team, I'd take Johnson because of his age and potential. Girardi isn't old though at 28.

When EJ is playing his game, he's better than Girardi. But that wasn't consistent enough last season to be considered the better player overall. I'd take EJ as a homer/fan of his, but wouldn't disagree with anyone taking Girardi either.

I expect EJ to be better in the future though.

Regardless of potential, Girardi fits our needs better

I take EJ in a perfect world where he fulfills his potential. Can be a more dynamic player than Girardi.

Johnson. Not sure why Girardi is such an easy choice for people

Girardi pretty easily for me, EJ stills has loads of potential but I highly doubt he will ever come close to it.

One guy in this poll is better than the other guy in this poll right now. I think its pretty clear.

For the most part you've only got Avs fans and Devils fans voting for Johnson.

Why are so many people mentioning "potential"?

At some point in time you have to, you know, actually show signs of ever living up to that potential.

You must not have seen him play all that much. He showed a lot of "living up to that potential" last year.

Then people should be referring to his play, not his potential.

I doubt Johnson will ever have as good a season as Girardi had this past season. So I take him.

That's your opinion and I would take Johnson.

His potential is being able to play like he did for a whole season and being consistent night in and night out. His play is wildly inconsistent.

How is this poll close? Girardi is twice the player Erik Johnson is.
