Gagner. Monahan could never take a beating from Beauchemin like SS did.
Don't know enough about either of them honestly. PVR is going to be busy during the WJHC lol.
Who says Monahan would've fought him in the first place. The point was standing up regardless of outcome.
In my opinion I think I'll need more time to fully make a decision between these two kids. Furthermore I'd like to have an idea of where were picking because there will be other options which may or may not include these two...
Both good players and both would be awesome on the Oilers.
I personally like Lindholm more and think he would be perfect fit on the Oilers. I've said it before (in Prospects section for the Barkov vs Monahan vs Lindholm thread) but he would slot in perfectly for us.
He is very gritty (Monahan is bigger size wise but from the handful of games I've caught of both players, Lindholm I think plays grittier). He is a great playmaker, very strong down low, has sick dangles, good defensive games (especially for such a young player) just a perfect complement to our young forwards we have. I think Lindholm and Yakupov together would be absolutely sick combo.
I'm going to say Lindholm, hopefully I don't get burned like I did with Paajarvi! Honestly though Lindholm is an awesome player, but without a doubt Monahan would be the perfect #2 center behind RNH and IMO a better fit for the Oilers.
