Best Center in So Cal - Kopitar vs. Getzlaf

If you want to win, who would you want? Ignore Getzlaf's contract for the sake of fairness. Both are around the same age and are 1st line centers on their team. Both have a ring and play with talented wingers.

I'd prefer Kopitar because of his 2-way game. No poll by the way.

This year I'd say Getz is the better player. But overall I'd take Kopitar...

Getzlaf doesn't have to play as much defense because when he's on the ice, Anaheim usually has the puck. Kopitar may very well be better than Getzlaf "defensively", but if he is, it's not by much.

Kopitar puts up some pretty impressive possession numbers as well though.

Still, I would take Getzlaf by a (lack of) hair. I think he's just more talented and it's shown in his offensive numbers outside of last season. Kopitar may be better defensively, but Getzlaf is no slouch and can play against other first liners no problem as well.

What is this "Mighty Ducks of Anaheim" nonsense. They haven't had that name since 2006.

Both are great players but will take Kopi.

Getzlaf plays with Perry.
Kopitar plays with Brown.

Perry >>>> Brown

Give Kopi Perry WOW!!!!

Ok like I was dying reading this cause at first I thought it was a joke, but then I noticed you were a Kings fan and things got serious because you actually meant it.

Getzlaf 9 times out of 10.

As a Stars fan, I've seen both players 6 games a year for the past few years, and Kopitar never stands out.

No not sure what your trying to say? You think Brown has as much offensive skill as Perry?

I don't think this poll really works, despite the seeming obvious comparison between the two. Getzlaf has seasons (such as this one and a few others in the past) where he is undoubtedly better than Kopitar - he is just better offensively. But Kopitar has a more complete game, and he is also much more consistent. I bet the poll results would be completely different depending on what season you chose to hold them in. Some seasons Getzlaf looks worse comparatively to Kopitar than, if you judged him by his overall body of work, he actually is.
