I voted RNH, but I change my mind. I think the Rangers could use another defenseman.

I love OEL... and you probably can't go wrong with either one I picked RNH. Kid could be an offensive beast.

This, steady the rear and get a guy that can move the puck forward as well.

OEL is great and most likely a franchise defenseman. But it's Nugent Hopkins.

For Vancouver, OEL, but I could definitely see other teams taking RNH.

The premise of this poll is which of these two guys would you choose to *start* your team with in a fantasy draft. You wouldn't be adding either of them to your existing team.

Personally, I choose Nugent-Hopkins. I think successful teams are best built around an elite centerman. I like Ekman-Larsson a lot, but people are getting a little too enamored with him in my opinion.

I think OEL is gonna be a beast, but to take a defencemen over RNH they'd have to be a Pietrangelo type defencemen, and I don't think OEL is there. No knock on Ekman Larson though, 30 teams in the league would love to have him.

RNH for me. I prefer to build around an elite center than defenseman.

As a coyotes fan it was still hard to pass up RNH but I prefer the franchise D man

When comparing elite players I don't think going purely off position is fair. I'd pick RNH because I think he'll become one of the top 10 players in the league.

RNH. I've watched the Flames for too long without a real #1 center. If I had the chance to build a team from scratch, center would be the first position I would choose.

RNH for me. Much safer choice IMO, and I think he has higher upside too.

Also this (except replace "Flames" with "Leafs"):

OEL is great and all, but this should be RNH pretty easily.

On the Habs, give me OEL. He could be phenomenal with Subban in the future with possibly Beaulieu and Tinordi on the second pairing. On my sharks, I'd like RNH. Can never go wrong with centre depth, especially with Couture able to play wing, and Joe and Marleau starting to age. RNH and Hertl as one - two punch with Couture and Pavelski on Nuge's wing.........

Why did you mention "your team" if it's a fantasy draft? You're confusing everyone.

For a full fantasy draft, I'd take RNH first.

To add to the Oilers, I'd probably add an OEL instead of a second RNH, but I'm not sure.
