Umberger vs. Miettinen

These two guys are no very known by the people but they can contribute in their respective teams.

Umberger proved last year in playoffs that he was a warrior and a goalscorer.

Miettinen proved last year that if he plays with the best (Ribeiro-Morrow and Koivu), he can put some points on the board.

So, who would you choose first on your team?

Umberger simply because he was on the Flyers and he was one of my favorite players EVER. And his playoff run was just absolutely amazing.

Umberger is gritty and an all around solid player, but he is definitely not that great of a scorer. Carey Price single handedly gave Umberger is 15 million dollar deal, specifically the glove hand.

I've always liked Umberger, he always stands out in big situations. Kinda reminds me of a poor mans Jamie Langenbrunner.

Only during the first half of the season. The second half he will develop a horrible case of blindness and will become worthless just like he was here in Dallas.

Umberger easily especially the way he killed the Habs last playoffs
