Staal or Getzlaf?

Both young, power forwards early in their careers.

Two young players with some promising careers. I'd take Getzlaf over Staal though.

I'd take Getzlaf over all Staal brothers combined.

This poll is always pretty even, before this season that is.

I've always been a fan of Getzlaf, and was happy when the Ducks won the cup.

Hated Staal and anything Carolina since they beat the Coilers for the cup.

Getzlaf caught Staal last year

He has passed him this year

Getzlaf is more physical and well rounded.

Staal should continue to be a very good player but his 100 point year seems like an aberration

A bit unfair when Staal is having a subpar year and Getz is having a breakout year. I'll still choose Getzy ofcourse...

Ryan Getzlaf by a long shot. I think Eric Staal has been a bit overrated since the tremendous 05-06 season he had.

I think Staal won all the polls before but this one ain't gonna be close and it makes sense. Staal's having a below average year and Getzlaf is playing like a beast. Who is/will be better in the long run is still up for grabs but right now... even I gotta go with Getz and i hate his ugly jerky face.

I first thought it was Jordan Staal and thought to myself is this a joke.Open the thread and found out it was Eric. I would say that Getzlaf has surpass Staal this yr so i'll take Getzlaf

Getzlaf is starting to look like Forsberg - dangerous every single time he has the puck. He has definitely passed Staal.
