David Legwand vs. Pekka Rinne

Semi-finals!

Rinne for me. I want to see a Rinne vs. Weber drag-out, knockdown.

Legwand is Mr. Predator. But Pekka is PEKKA.

Legwand was the man in Nashville for too many years.

I think the main thing is that Leggy's body of work is now done in Predators lore. Rinne's still writing his story.

if Leggy hadnt been the first draftee, and was just viewed on his body of work here, I don't think he'd be in anyones top 5.

This is just an unfair vote. It's like picking between myself and my mirror.

Yeah, that's just it. Leggy had some high expectations, and though they were a bit unrealistic, he never met them.

I've never been a big fan of that mindset. If you have the #2 overall pick and someone told you that you'd pick a guy who would be very solid for 15 years, you're taking it every time. Whatever "expectations" he didn't meet, that doesn't mean he wasn't worth it.

That said, I wanted to vote Leggy but I couldn't.

This is as of today; I think you have to vote Leggy - solidly a top 6 for a big run of years, including our first PO runs before Peks. Plus, centering Ward and Smithson as that #2 and shutdown line is still criminally under-appreciated; in Trotzy's system, that was as important as putting up 60+. That said, IN a few years, I'm quite sure it's easily Peks.
