Mike Fisher or Alex Steen?

Who would you rather have on your team right now?

I hate getting involved in these Ottawa/Toronto threads.

But Fisher right now, Steen in the future (Although it will still be close).

This is already on the poll board.

Hmmm... Lemme think.

Seriously though, my answer is very obvious. I'm a real big fan of what Steen is doing in Toronto as a young guy, showing he'll be a very big piece of the team in the future. He'll have more points on a yearly basis in the not so distant future. Will he add as much to the bigger puzzle in the end? I don't know how you couldn't take Fish.

Well Steen only has one less point than Fisher does right now, so technically the not so distant future could be the next game..lol

I agree.

Not a very good comparison of players, though.

Fisher is a great third liner and an average second liner.

Steen is a good second liner and is projected to be a great first liner if his development continues.

And to those who say 'Fisher in the future'. . . the Fisher now is the Fisher you will have 5 years down the line (he will probably be more injury prone than he already is. . . if that is possible). Fast foward 5 years and Steen will eclipse Fisher in both skill and leadership.

You're absolutely right. As a 3rd liner I've seen few better. As a 2nd line centre he lacks the playmaking abilities at the centre position. His best plays is his fearless and determined drive to the net, big hits and his above average wrist shot from the slot.

I think Steen has more potential upside in terms of offensive skill, but the leadership argument I think is misplaced.

Fisher is a warrior who plays his best hockey in the playoffs, like Chris Phillips. Ottawa needs these kinds of guys, since most of the roster is accused of being regular season specialists.

It seems like Sens fans don't have enough reasons to feel good right now, so they need hear the others praising their team. Strange for me. The comparision is ridiculous and unfair for Steen. Just like previous Ovechkin versus Forsberg thread. What now? Eric Johnson versus in his prime Chris Chelios? Kessel versus Rocket Richard? Geez. You must be bored guys.

Sensfans will not rest until every comparison thread is won.

First it was Eaves, now we've moved to Fisher. How the hell does that work??

Just a note, this thread was started because of the original Eaves vs. Steen thread in the prospects section. During the discussion, on guy stated that Steen would be the 2nd best center on Ottawa if he played for the Sens. I said that he's not better than Fisher. The guy disagreed and said that the majority of people would take Steen over Fisher right now. So, a thread was started to see who's right.

A better idea, make a poll in the poll board.

I don't think it's worth starting a thread just because of what one guy says.

These two players have different styles and are at different stages of their careers, so comparing them is difficult at best.

If I have a team that can win now I'll take Fisher, other then that I'll take Steen for the future.

Based on what?

The moral of the story is that this comparison is ridiculous. But to say he will eclipse the Fish in leadership, I'd like to know what makes you think that.

No offense Crossroads, Steen may very well be a more skilled player than Fisher, but in terms of determination, physical play and leadership he is not even close. Not even remotely close.

Fisher is one of those players who will likely turn into a premier player later in his career. His goal scoring ability is way underrated and he's a legitimate second line center.

Ignoring the 2003-04 season when Fisher only played in 24 games his point totals have increased (and average point per game) and he's on pace to do the same this year. I think Fisher will continue to improve and that in 5 years he won't be the same player. I don't know how you could determine whether he'd be more injury prone in the future. It's possible in 5 years Steen does eclipse Fisher in skill (I haven't seen Steen play enough to be a fair judge of that) but you can't measure leadership.
