Sens fan saying Spezza.

Henrik seems to be declining. Spezza put up 84 points with Michalek and Greening last year.

Henrik Sedin. He's as productive as Spezza, but can actually stay healthy. Spezza can't stay healthy regularily, and that's a liability.

List of centres that I'd take over Sedin next year:

Crosby
Malkin
Toews
Stamkos
Kopitar
Spezza
Thornton
Bergeron
Krejci
Giroux
Getzlaf
Datsyuk
Staal
Backstrom
Tavares

Then there are a few young guys that I think will also probably be better this year but I wouldn't take them over Sedin as of right now.

The only reason to take Sedin is injury worries.

However since he said who is better not who is healthier it's Spezza easily.

Can't decide. Spezza is, IMO, more talented and has had a better career to date. He's also injury prone, though, and I'm not sold on his back problems ending with the most recent surgery. Henrik is certainly talented in his own right, and although he took longer to develop, he had a better peak. He's more consistently in the lineup, although he appears to have left his peak years already (ie won't hit 100 points again).

I'm not sure how you could make a case for the bolded, really.

Spezza - Spent all of last season injured. Sedin hasn't missed a game in 8 seasons. Very close PPG.
Thornton - Sedin has outscored him for the last 3 seasons, why would you take Joe?
Bergeron - A case could be made if you were looking for a two-way 2nd line center, but Sedin is a legit playmaking #1C.
Krejci - A similar player to Sedin, but worse. Coming off a good post season performance, but until he follows it up I'm not sure how he's better than Sedin.


The other guys you can make a case for. Sedin was 7th in scoring in the western conference, and was 10th overall as a center. That's in a down year where the powerplay was abysmal. Let's not underrate the guy now.

Close, but Spezza. Plays with generally worse players, less sheltered. If health was factored into it, it would be a tougher decision.

edit: by sheltered, I mean zone starts and such.

Spezza last 4 years: 203 points in 207 games = .98 PPG (very impressive)
Henrik last 4 years : 332 points in 294 games = 1.13 PPG (VERY impressive).

Not a knock on Spezza, but Henrik is a very skilled player

I saw Henrik play most of his games last season .. I'm really not sure why everyone thinks he is slowing down or having a bad year or something? Just noticing HF Boards perception of him (and his brother to a lesser extent) is that they are 39 and about to retire when they are still only 33 and have lots of good hockey left in them.

Krejci has already proven himself, he led the playoffs in scoring in 2011 with 23pts and this year with 26pts. He's great in the playoffs and this goes back to every league he's played in.

AHL (1.09 PPG regular season / 1.23 PPG playoffs)
QMJHL (1.23 PPG / 1.52 PPG)
NHL (0.73 PPG / 0.90 PPG)

Weird.

Everyone from the East Coast is voting Spezza.

It's like they don't even watch Sedin play.

HINT: They don't.

Accidentally voted for non Sens fan voting for Spezza, but Sedin is the better player, and it's him easily if you factor in health. Prettt funny that those saying it's Spezza easily are from the east coast and likely only watch Sedin when their team plays the Canucks...

Or, that Sedin`s ppg is .15 higher the last 4 years, but that doesn't matter at all right? I know you're likely sleeping when he plays, but it's crazy how underrated he is now that he's not scoring 100 points anymore.
