A 19 year old kid giving a $98 million man a run for his money as who's been the best? Yeah, that makes the 19 year old kid the more impressive player even though the $98 million man has been the better player...he's paid to be the better player.
I would say its the 19 year old that has allowed the 98 million dollar guy to emerge, see Suter can be a better player because he has Brodin who'm he can trust, much like in NSH he had a guy he could trust, this is the same issue here.
This is kind of tough. Obvious choice would be Parise. I would say top three would be Parsie Suter and Koivu. Each bring different aspects of their game and all three are leaders, which is why they have the A's and C's on their sweaters.
