Getzlaf is the absolute total package of offence defence and physical play. The others dont bring his level of physical prowess and he is pretty good defensively not to mention He is the best offensively as indicated by his 91 point season which clearly shows a gap offensive ability between kopitar and couture.

I don't think Thornton is on their level anymore. San Jose is Coutures team now, and rightfully so.

In saying that, for me its

Getzlaf
Kopitar

Couture

Getzlaf, followed closely by Kopitar, and then there's a gap and then Couture.

Getz and Kopi are pretty close. Getzlaf is better offensively, and Kopitar is better defensively. I think Getzlaf, at his best, is better than Kopitar at his. Couture is a very talented player with a bright future, but right now I just don't think he's up to the level of the other two. I expect this poll to be between Getz and Kopi.

I like the fact that you choose Couture instead of Marleau or Thornton.

I took Kopi. But the funny thing is the votes are 8-0-8. Where are ya Sharks fans?

Getzlaf. He's more talented than Kopitar, both are great though.

In terms of who I'd want on my team first:

1. Getzlaf
2. Couture
3. Sorry Kopi.

In terms of skill:

1. Kopitar
2. Coutur.
3. Getzlaf.

RIght here! Haha.

Really though, I think this is a bad comparison poll. Getzlaf has 8 years in the league. Kopitar has 7.

Couture is a 3 and half. Almost half as much as the other two. I think in four years when he's had the time the other two have, Couture will be the better player. The fact that's he's already in the conversation at this early stage of his career shows how much his game has elevated in just a short amount of time.

Pure skill though, I take Kopitar. But he just isn't on the level of Getzlaf when it comes to setting a tone and playing balls out.

The age difference can work in his favor too. Just sayin'

What makes you think he has more pure skill than Getzlaf?

Getzlaf is too whiny and inconsistent compared to kopitar.

I choose Kopitar. But I think it's not fair for couture to be slotted with people older than him.

Getzlaf is lazy too.

Getzlaf. If he wouldn't have inconsistency issues it would be Getzlaf AINEC.

Now it is close with kopitar but I am gonna side with Getzlaf.

Aside from one year Getzlaf has been a consistent PPG player since 07-08. Not many players can claim that kind of consistency.

And anyone that watches him play consistently wouldn't call him lazy - certainly not this season.

Getzlaf is clearly better than Kopitar offensively, is only slightly worse defensively and brings a physical element that Kopitar doesn't have.

All things considered it was Kopitar for me and not a very difficult decision either.

Homer voted Couture, because he stands no chance in this poll, but it's much closer than the results show.

Now:

Kopitar
Getzlaf
Couture

Future:

Kopitar/Couture
Getzlaf

in my opinion. But I'm a big fan of Kopitar, and Couture is my 2nd favourite player.

Kopitar and Getzlaf are pretty much even, Couture isn't far behind. Good poll.
