Which group would you rather have?

This came up from the Pittsburgh speculation thread. Would you rather have Gagner, Gilbert, Omark and 2 1st round picks (approximately 10th overall) or Stamkos (modern day Jimmy Carson), MPS (modern day Gelinas at the time of the Gretzky trade), and 3 1sts (17th, 15th, and 12th overall). We won't include the 15 million which would be worth 27 million now.

Basically Stamkos+1st or Gagner+Gilbert and Omark...

Typo? Because I can't see how anyone would want the latter package over Stamkos and a 1st. If it's Stamkos vs. Gagner+Gilbert+Omark and another 1st, then I would have to think about it.

I am confused as to how this is happening but I guess I would go with the Stamkos package.

#2 has the 2 best talents so to me it's a no brainer. Not to mention is place of Gilbert or Omark you get another 1st rounder in the 2nd package.

Seriously would either of the 2 that voted for the 1st package mind telling me what I may/may not be seeing in this? Is it the pick #'s? The 2nd package you get a first overall pick that has potted well over 30 goals already and MPS and THREE 1st round picks.

This came up because there was a poster that suggested that the proposed trade for Malkin (Gags, Gilbert, Omark and 2 1sts) was a greater return than what Gretzky returned in 1988.

This is one of my pet peeves when it comes to forum posts, but it really does stand true in this situation.

Whoever gets the best player, pretty much always wins the trade.


Stamkos has proven so far to be the best player by a substantial margin.

I really don't understand this question. Are we trying to remake the Gretzky trade with our players on both sides? And who is Gretzky?

2nd package by a longshot

Stamkos is a player you can build around. Easier to find the pieces to surround him.
