I'd say they are pretty much interchangeable at this point, although Tom Wilson is putting up similar to better numbers at a year younger - however, this is Biggs' 1st year in the OHL and Wilson's 2nd. We'll see what Biggs can accomplish at the AHL level next year.

Liked both these guys in their draft years. Will be interesting to see how Biggs plays at the WJHC over Christmas.

Small correction, but it's actually Wilson's 3rd year in the OHL. He's finally putting up decent point totals this season. I had my doubts about his overall offensive upside because of his first two years in the league. So maybe he's turned the corner and is displaying more offensive upside than previously shown.

Lmao, HF never makes sense to me. A couple of weeks ago, this exact same poll was done.

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1298571

The results were even.

What exactly has Wilson done in that time to gain an edge in this poll? Being cut from Team Canada?

This place never ceases to amaze me.

Pretty even as players, but one advantage that Biggs has an advantage and it is a big one when you talk about players of these type. Wilson seems to be still figuring out how to fight.

He often loses his balance and he will have to improve on this if he gets to the NHL, otherwise he could may get hurt.

I'd take Wilson. Saw him play in Ottawa a couple weeks ago and I was impressed. He had some decent offensive skill combined with a nice physical game. He has a better PPG than Biggs, too. I see Wilson toping out as a solid third line checker that brings some offense, and see Biggs topping out as a fourth line energy guy.

FWIW I'd take Noesen over both of them. That's just me, though.

Maybe all of the leafs fans are out protesting and couldn't get their votes in.

And the winner for worst post in the thread goes to... Great job buddy!

Making sure I'm not a homer here I have to say I view them as even. I'm a huge Biggs fan and he's one of my favourite Leaf prospects, but Wilson is having a great year as well, and I've always been impressed by him when I've seen him. I think both have higher potential than what einstein above me as predicted and I could definitely see either of them on the 2nd line creating space with a solid physical game while using them skill to put up points.

I have seen a lot of both players this year in the OHL. I like Biggs game a lot more though. I think he is more likely to reach his potential too.
