P. Bergeron or Getzlaf?

Patrice Bergeron and Ryan Getzlaf are two completely different hockey players. If hypothetically given the choice, which would you rather have on your team?

Bergeron on the Blues. Good luck to the rest of the league scoring on us.

I'd take Bergeron considering the ridiculous contract Getzlaf is going to get.

Bergeron won't come cheap either but Getzlaf's gonna be gold-plated on the open market.

Bergeron isn't a free agent until the 2014-2015 Season.

Give me Getzlaf. He's an absolute monster when he's on his game. He just needs to stay healthy and motivated.

I'd take a chance on him.

Wow. You are right; I must have read that information incorrectly from somewhere. I edited the post. The question should now suffice.

Homer vote here but I'd take Bergeron. Since 09-10 he's been a force both offensively and defensively. Selke winner, Cup winner. If not for Thomas winning the Conn Smythe chances are he would have taken that too. I like Getzlaf a lot but having watched Bergeron play for many seasons now, he has evolved into an absolute nightmare for the opposing team.

Love Bergeron but I don't see how you could take him over a big right shot top center who's been among the league leaders offensively in the past. Getzlaf had a bad year but c'mon. Bergeron is awesome but even with his Selke caliber D game Getzy is still better.

Bergeron last season, but Getzlaf so many years before that so gotta go with him.

Bergeron is my favorite player, maybe ever, but I'd have to go with Getzlaf..

He had an off year, but there's no age difference, and when he's on his game, he's one of the most dominant players in the game. It's pretty close, though.

Getzlaf.

He didn't have an off-year last year (his puck possession rates were virtually identical), he just met some hot goaltenders and some bad luck..

Bergeron and it's close, I think Getzlaf is pretty overrated anyway.

Bergeron is a excellent second line center but if he's your top guy your not going far in the playoffs unless your crazy deep. Getzlaf is a true top center. He's won a cup too so there's no debate there.

Bergeron was top 15 in center scoring this year and won the Selke, to say that's only 2nd line center material is pretty ridiculous.

There's also the fact that he was won on damned near every level, the guy has a ridiculous trophy case.

Getzlaf, when he is playing like it, is top-5 center in the show. I would take him.

He's never going to get you 80-90 points though. Guys who can put up those kind of numbers are still the rarest commodity in the league. Let alone ones that play center and are 6'4" 225. Way too rare of a skill set to pass up.

Only 6 centers scored 80+ points last season, that's pretty strict criteria.

None of the last 3 Cup winners had a center who scored 80+ points.

I'd be happy with either of them on the Leafs. I'd probably lean towards Getzlaf though only because he's more offensive minded and physical.
