Myers vs Subban

These two players do play in the same divison, so i assume Sabres fans have had a good enough look at both players.
P.K. was drafted a year ahead, but went the AHL route. Both played on Team Canada in the World Juniors a couple years back.
I haven't watched enough of both to have a solid judgment, but i think you fans do.

Therefore, Who will be the better player of all-time?
Pernell Karl Subban or Tyler Myers

Myers and it isn't even close. The only thing Subban's really got on the kid is slap shot power and physicality, and Myers has improved a lot about both of those this season.

I bet Myers wouldn't startle at firecrackers.

I like PK, but Myers is a step above. Anything could happen, but if I'm a better man, it's Myers all the way.

They're not even in the same class IMO.

Does Subban even pan out as good as Myers is RIGHT NOW? (a #1 minute eater who plays all situations)

Are you trying to embarrass Suban? The poor lad doesn't need this comparison which should never have been initiated. It almost makes me think you are racist and took this back door opportunity to bring up Suban's multiple flaws.

probably not the best place to poll this, and the Habs board would be the exact opposite vote.

Try the main board ....

PK's exciting. He's a guy who'll play physical, get under people's skin and has the talent and athleticism to be a very exciting player.

That said, he'll never be the defensive stopper that Myers is and will never be as complete a defenseman as Myers.

Myers' combination of size, speed & skill is something that this league has never seen before. His ceiling is unheard of.

In my totally pure and non-biased opinion ( ) , I'd say Myers

Myers is a great dane. Subban is the chihuahua yipping at his ankles.

Yes he does... plays on PP, PK and ES! He will play close to 30 minutes on some nights... both he and Myers have similar stats.

Well the Sabres are *scary good*, after all.

What exactly is the point of this thread? Both players are very good and serve different roles on their respective teams.

I don't even feel like a homer for saying this. Myers by a mile...or ten.

I have never thought, "Oh, we better watch out for Subban."

I'm sure other teams feel differently about Myers.

I'll take Myers on my team over Subban, but he's good too.

Myers has been playing some kind of hockey since the year began, but his +/- is never going to recover from that shaky start to the season.

I'm sorry, I'm trying to take as unbiased a view of this as possible, and I love Subban's game...

...but I've seen Myers at times just take over games and dominate the ice in a way we've probably never seen from a Sabres defenseman. If these instances of dominant play are indicative of the player Myers will be when he matures, he's going to be a rare talent.

I haven't seen enough of Subban to say who is better right now, but Myers has ridiculous potential, which is a huge, physical shutdown guy who also has very good skating ability and can score. You can't really ask for much more than that.

Is it too farfetched to say that Myers could be the best defenseman in the league 5-7 years from now? I could see him winning some hardware over that span.

I've always thought the future group of d-man include Myers, Doughty, Weber, EJ
never really thought Subban could be in that group. However, d-man take some time to develop, who knows how much better P.K. can become in due time

This may not be a great comparison*, because neither of them are that great yet, but Subban might be the Ovechkin to Myers' Crosby.

PK is probably going to be more exciting and make more highlight real hits and plays, but Myers will be the better overall player who dominates the game on a different level.

*Not opening up a Crosby/Ovie debate, just how I see it I guess.

Myers will be in that group before. He's already won the Calder and has a much higher celing than Subban. In the end, they're two very different types of Dmen but if I had to choose one, it's Myers.
