I'll say Nilsson because he's better defensively.

Being a two-way player is better than being a one-way player IMO, even if scores a few less points.

Then you know nothing about O'Sullivan and you have never seen him play, let's be honest.

O'Sullivan is the better player now and for the future.

I respectfully suggest you tune in and watch a Kings game. O'Sullivan is better offensively and just as good defensively. So in essence what you are saying is youd pick the player whos less talented.

Or,perhaps he has actually seen Nilsson and O'Sullivan play, and simply has a different opinion than you.

It is possible for fans to watch the same players and not agree on their abilities.


(not that I agree with him - but that isn't the point).

I'm an Oiler fan and think that O'Sully should win this easily.

The issue is calling O'Sullivan a one-way player when he is leading the Kings in +/- led Kings forwards in PK time last year and is up there again this year. It shows that he has clearly not watched a single Kings game in his life, not a difference of opinion.

Being a Flames fan, I feel compelled to vote for O'Sullivan. Not to mention I traded for him on NHL 09. ^_^

Huh ??

I don't say anything at all about who's better defensively. I just refer to the fact he calls O'Sullivan a one-dimensional player and that's too ridiculous for words. It's not a difference of opinion..

In my personal opinion, calling Patrick O'Sullivan a one-dimensional player is silly and I think it is unlikely that anybody who is not an Oilers fan thinks that the two players are close to being equal. But, that is just my opinion. If somebody else watches him and reaches a different conclusion, that is fine by me. But, I'm not going to assume that anybody who doesn't share my view of O'Sullivan's two way game simply hasn't seen the guy play. It is possible for the above poster and I to watch the exact same player and come away with much different conclusions.

Anyway, wasn't trying to give you the flame. Sorry if it came across that way.

Yes, you can block posters. You just click on the name, and then go to the bottom and click on "add to my ignore list."

No he's not and sorry considering your posting history I can't believe you actually watch POS.

POS > Nilsson

I like Nilsson and am an Oilers fan, but POS is an excellent two way player. Nilsson may become O'Sullivan in a year or two, but he's not there yet.
