All facets of the Red Jets are outstanding. The forward group just might be the strongest of them all, as it features 4 legitimate scoring lines that show unparalleled depth and talent when compared to the other teams in this game. My defensive core seamlessly blends a stunning combination of boundless offensive talent and elite defensive acumen. It also features two of the most physical blue-liners in the NHL in Niklas Kronwall and Dustin Byfuglien. In goal, the elite tandem of Jimmy Howard and the legendary Martin Brodeur is easily capable of backstopping a team to the Stanley Cup.

In sum, you should vote for the Red Jets because the Red Jets have the best players.
The above still holds true. New Edmonton has assembled a great team, but my group of skaters are deeper and more talented than theirs. Let's break it down group by group for your convenience.

Up front both teams are deep, but Edmonyork has some clear issues. Jordan Eberle is not a top line player, and Jarome Iginla is a shell of the player he used to be. This is a stark contrast with my team, which is so deep that Henrik Zetterberg is on the 3rd line.

On defense, my group has more high-end talent from top to bottom than the Oilgers. Ryan McDonagh would slot into a bottom-pairing position on my blue-line, but he's a top two guy for Edmonyork.

You criticize Eberle on my top line, while Ladd is on yours. Evander Kane is hardly a top line guy either. The Red Jets do have great scoring depth, but their penalty kill would be a disaster. Kopitar, Backes, Clowe, Iginla, and Callahan all would be excellent PK-ers. Oh, and Callahan is on my 4th line. Hemsky, Clutterbuck, and Boyle are on my 5th line as injury fill ins and players to sub in and out based on need. Boyle, Clutter, Callahan, Clowe, Backes, and Iginla would pound his team into submission.

Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Drew Doughty ($5.250m—25.0%)
Dustin Byfuglien ($5.200m) / Tobias Enstrom ($5.750m)
Lubomir Visnovsky ($4.750m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)

Roman Josi ($0.750m) / Ladislav Smid ($3.500m)


He can say McD would be on his third pairing all he wants, but my D is better top to bottom. We have a Norris finalist paired with the best young DFD in the game, two incredible shut down players and leaders on the 2nd pairing, and two young guns who play on their teams respective top pairings as our 3rd. Both groups are good, but similar to offense, he focused too much on offense and not enough on D. Suter, McD, Staal, Girardi, and Smid could all shut down his forwards, while Doughty, Buff, Enstrom, Vis, and Ericsson are all offensive minded D.

Oh, and he conveniently forgot to include this little match-up:

Howard
vs.
Lundqvist

Do I need to say anything else?

Vote . Will just let the roster do the talking. No spiel.

BTW one thing I love about this team, while we may not win the cup this year. We have an extremely young team. That will do great for years.

Seriously , there d > my d, and there offense beats mine just a little , but my goalie beats theres massively and i don't think people take this in to account when voteing. Seriously this is massive and schenider wont win the cup. Oh and just as a statement don't vote kllr because of his giant ass ego lol. And yes i know this is going to be on polls jsut saying why i deserve to win.
Not sure if this is serious, but are you seriously saying Luongo is better based on Schneider's two bad playoff games this year? I wouldn't even call those games that bad either, the Canucks as a team sucked (no offense Produce). Arguing Luongo over any goalie for the playoffs really isn't smart

Eberle isn't a top line player? What's your definition of a top line player? Last year he was 15th in points for forwards. This year he was 39th in points for forwards. So there are like 30 first line players in the league then? About one per team? Please tell me you're joking.

I love Kronwall, but McDonagh is just as good, if not better. Kronwall is a mediocre #1, he needs a good defensive defenseman next to him for him to really excel both ways.

Unless you're rolling a rare 15 forward lineup, those 3 are irrelevant. The last time a team tried to pound another into submission, the Kings lost in 5 to the team with more skill.

In what universe are Ladislav Smid and McD shut down D? Z's line would comically overmatch the Josi-Smid pairing.

I was discussing skaters, but yes, you have a marginally better goaltender tandem. It surely shouldn't stop you from looking at the big picture and voting for the Red Jets.

Yes, he rode high percentages in 2011-12 and tumbled down the boards this season. Surely you don't rate players solely on points, right? FYI, he was 132nd among forwards in Corsi On this year, and 251st last year. If he's a top line forward, it's probably only in Edmonton.

Ladd is in no way, shape, or form better than Eberle. Agree to strongly disagree.

Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Little, Ladd, Richards, and Carter all played on the PK this season. That isn't an area of concern for this team.

I'll grant you Datsyuk, Z, and Ladd, but your team defense is still worlds behind mind.

Unless you're rolling a rare 15 forward lineup, those 3 are irrelevant. The last time a team tried to pound another into submission, the Kings lost in 5 to the team with more skill.

No, the last time that happened was when the star-studded Penguins got mauled by the Bruins in 4 games.

My entire defensive group was on their teams' top parings. Best young DFD in the game? I didn't realize you had Alex Pietrangelo or.... Drew Doughty.

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...19&postcount=1

I'll grant you Petro, and Doughty is better offensively, but I will take McD over Doughty in the defensive zone 10/10 times.

In what universe are Ladislav Smid and McD shut down D? Z's line would comically overmatch the Josi-Smid pairing.

You underestimate Josi, and Smid is absolutely a shutdown D, and he's my #6. All 6 of my defenseman would have played on the top pairing if they could, but since three were Rangers, no way that could happen.

I was discussing skaters, but yes, you have a marginally better goaltender tandem. It surely shouldn't stop you from looking at the big picture and voting for the Red Jets.

Marginally. Marginally. MARGINALLY? I have the #1 goalie in the world. That battle is a clear win for me

You built a great team WCB, but in my opinion, this isn't that close. You are loaded with offensive talent, but team defense and goaltending win championships, and my team would be nearly impossible to score on.

Vote !
See the bold.

Surely you don't judge forwards based on just Corsi? Who needs to watch games when we can just use advanced stats for everything right?

We're not putting advanced stats on trial here. It's been proven that they accurately reflect the game, and they're being used by the vast majority of teams. Their merits are no longer up for debate.

Eberle's not among the top forwards in points nor Corsi. Do you have any other hot stats for me? (Save yourself the effort, I don't care) How many Oilers games did you watch this season for you to formulate your expert opinion?

Hey, I also feel that this isn't close, so at least we agree on something.

Defense and goaltending do win championships. I have both, so I went and stacked my offense. Thank you, God bless, and vote for the Red Jets.

He's more top in points than Ladd is . Oh and btw I'm not the one who claimed that Eberle isn't a top line forward, you are. So feel free to explain why he isn't one instead of just saying he isn't one and then "How many Oilers games did you watch this season for you to formulate your expert opinion?"

Best of luck to one of the better up and coming GMs in this game in Soul Assassin. His Chicago Blackhawks (feat. The Calgary Flames), are an incredibly impressive group. They rounded out their offense by adding Zach Parise, and majorly upgraded in net with Pekka Rinne. They are a very formidable opponent and it will, undoubtedly, be an all out war.

We hope that our tremendous center depth, insane top pairing D, and Conn Smythe level goaltending will help us in edging our original 6 foe.

Ladd was 7th in points per 60 this season, while Eberle was 49th. Good try, good effort.

If you want a dissertation on why Eberle isn't a top line player, you'll have to look elsewhere. The numbers show that he's almost a first line caliber scorer, but leaves a lot to be desired defensively. I'm sure you're smart enough to know that the 'expert opinion' remark was in response to your dismissal of Corsi.

I said just points, not points per 60. You said he was not top in points, I pointed out that he was more so than Ladd. Never said points was the only thing I was going off of either.

So you claim that Eberle isn't a top line player, then don't state reasons why other than his defense, yet you don't give any specifics. Sounds like you're completely relying on numbers, which means there is no point in continuing this argument

A tough 1st round matchup against the most respected GM in the league Produce, what my team features upfront, his team features behind. Most suggested Chicago only needed help in net and at 2C. We added a legit #1 LW in Parise and although we did not make the big upgrade at 2C we had hoped for, Cammy is a big step up from Handzus. Glencross and Stempniak were the perfect compliment to Bolland on our shutdown line, and the runaway trains on the 4th line of Bickell-Ott-Morrow add experience not to mention their tireless work ethic combined with hard hitting play.

While the D does not feature the horsepower of the Flyers/Hurricanes, Wideman, Giordano and Sekera are great compliments to Keith, Seabrook and Hjarmlsson. This deeeeep 6 man corps stands infront of one of the best goalies in the world Pekka Rinne whose never had this stellar of D, nor the offensive power infront of him before.

Best of luck to Produce Man. Its an honor to match up against him.

This is wonderful because the only thing you've used in support of Eberle is his points rank. Hope your glass house avoided damage from those stones you threw

YOU are the one convincing/arguing for your team. You claim he's not a top line player yet you give nothing outside of Corsi, and attack me for not giving specifics. Again YOU are the one defending YOUR team. I was playing a bit of Devils advocate but since you've done nothing to back up your claim against Eberle, I'm going to continue to like him at that top like RW spot.

That fourth line makes me want to punch somebody, they're so annoying!
