Sobotka Vs. Campbell

I saw the Torres vs Sobotka poll so it got me thinking who is the better of the two. I loved Sobotka when he was here and we never should have let him go, but campbell has been a terrific replacement.

Sobotka -
09-10 61 gp 4g 6a 10 pts
10-11 65gp 7g 22a 29pts
11-12 73gp 5g 15a 20pts


200910 60gp 2g 15a 17pts
20101180gp 13g 16a 29pts
201112 78gp 8g 8a 16pts
2012-13 4g 9a 13pts

They are also both tremendous penalty killers. Campbell fights and Sobotka is very fiesty. Sobotka won 56.5% of his draws this year, campbell only won 47.1% but has reguarly finished above 50%.

I take Campbell, think hes the best 4th line center in the league. Tremendous PKer, and underrated offensive ability.

Always thought SOB was a great player, but he simply had no place in Boston. Didn't look good at all on the wing here, and Campbell is now apart of the best best 4th line in the NHL.

Both good players, and we likely wouldnt lose much replacing Campbell with SOB, but I think Campbell is the better player.

The guy can lineup up anywhere on your bottom three lines and be effective. He's a pest, a tenacious forechecker, a solid two-way player, and displays more heart out there than most.

Sobotka. Also why list Campbell's stats from this year but not Sobotkas?

48gp 8g 11a 19pts

For me, the difference is that while both play similar roles and do so similarly, Sobotka has the skillset to fill in anywhere in the lineup, including on a scoring line with talented players. Campbell, while possessing adequate skills, could play up and down the lineup due to grit and hustle, but doesn't really have the skill set that he would make sense filling in on a top line.
