Which of these athletes is more valuable to their team, the NHL's best defenseman or the NBA's best point guard?

Sens seem to be doing just fine without him and Spezza. Should probably just waive them both.

I wish I could vote for option #4, but unfortunately I live in a primarily basketball market and know that the clippers would be sunk if they didn't have Chris Paul. I don't watch sens games, but when I look at the standings, its seems like they are doing just fine.

Chris Paul pretty much turned the Clippers franchise around to a playoff team.

Too bad he will be a Knick next season.

A single basketball player can turn a team into a contender, Chris Paul is one of those players.

As a bigger fan of bball than I am for hockey I can tell you Chris Paul is definitely more valuable. Clippers would be pretty bad without him.


Seriously, you guys are sports fans and have never heard of Chris Paul? Thats really surprising to me.

Any sport that isn't hockey is bad and you should feel bad!

Am I doing it right?

Anyways, Chris Paul.

Individual players have a much greater influence in basketball. So it's Chris Paul.

This^^

Honestly an era superstar in basketball (like chris paul) might have a greater effect on games than an all time great (gretz, orr, etc.) in hockey.

Compare him to Crosby and you'd have a decent poll.

Pretty much this. The sport is inherently different. One player makes a way bigger impact in basketball than one can in hockey. Take Chris Paul off the clippers, they'd struggle to get the 7th/8th seed.

In that sense, he's even more important than Crosby (just because of the difference in sports). Take Crosby off the Pens, they'd still get the 8th seed at the very least IMO. In the tough NBA western conference, I can't see the Clippers having a definitive advantage over Harden's Rockets, the Lakers, or the GS Warriors. They don't even make the playoffs without CP3. The same way the Cavs were fighting for the worst team in the league once you eliminated Lebron from the equation.

Basketball and Hockey players can't be compared. There are 5 players playing at once in basketball and 16 players plus a goalie.
