McDonagh vs. Ekman-Larsson

Which of these young defencemen would you rather have on your team? (Assume you can get both for the same caphit.)

OEL pretty easily.

No slight to McD, OEL is just that good.

McDonagh is the best skating Ranger I've ever seen. He is also the best defensive Ranger I've seen.

OEL. I am forever saddened that the Habs traded away a top-pairing D-man for THIS KIND OF **** ****:

http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/nhl/players/1844

But when all is said and done, OEL has the makings of a top-10 defender, a Lidstrom-lite.

I'd take Ryan McDonagh over so many other young defensemen not this time though.. I just think OEL is a premier talent in this league. You often hear about the new Lidstrom when D talents come from Sweden, OEL is as close to playing a Lidas-esque game there is right now. Oliver got some attention this past playoffs and now when he's on everyones eyes people will start to see how good this kid really is

OEL vision alone puts him ahead of so many players in the league, plus he doesn't take much physical damage in his game so he should be around for a very long time.

McDonagh is more physical and puts himself in danger, while I think he's a splendid player I do not believe his career will be as long.

I think McDonagh's gonna be a monster both ways, but OEL is already there, and therefore the safer pick right now. McDonagh has offensive upside. OEL has offense.

I'm not picking McD, but OEL is "already there" yet he has the same amount of points this season, something is wrong here.
