I can't choose, to me they're both on the same level. Their style of play is also so different that it's hard to compare, and none of them can replace the other.

How about if I put it this way: If Hextall was going to give one of them a two-year extension at $3.5m per season this summer, who would you prefer him to give it to?

The only thing Grossmann has a clear edge over MDZ is board strength. Grossmann is a good shot blocker, but so is MDZ.

I'd take MDZ easily, even with the offensivemindedness that often leads to a chance against due to a turnover or poorly timed pinch.

I'd give it to Del Zotto, but not because I think he deserves it more, but because I like him more. I will say that to me he seemed better than Grossmann in the latter part of the season, but overall I still had them on par (again, as much as I can compare them given their different styles).

Yeah. MDZ is shockingly weak along the boards, but Grossmann is shockingly weak at a ton of things.

I think of it in terms of, if I HAD to choose, would I rather have 6 MDZs on the Blue Line or 6 Grossmanns. I rationalize it by saying if we have a ton of MDZ's at least we will score a lot, even if we are going to get scored on. If we have a ton of Grossmann's we'll never get out of our zone and we may not get scored on as much (still a ton, just not as much) but we will also never score again.

MDZ, no hesitation.

Grossmann is just so, so bad.

I'm honestly surprised this is even a poll, nonetheless, MDZ.

Can someone explain to why I am not allowed to vote on poles? Is it because I'm a rookie user?

Now this makes more sense.

It's always amazing how little people know yet are so sure of themselves.

When you joined we all received an email asking if we wanted you to take part in polls. We all voted no.

Why do we even have to have a poll on that?
Edit: just found the link

Del Zotto beats Grossmann in every single aspect of the game except for size. Not even close.
