<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TheExpert</b></div><div>I know this is more or less a pipe dream, but if the Islanders trade Barzal to the Pens they're gonna want Guentzel in return. If you compare the two players stats, they're pretty similar.
Guentzel: 47 points, 24 goals, 8.1 relative Corsi, and 54.8 FF%
Barzal: 45 points, 14 goals, 7.1 relative Corsi, and 53.0 FF%
The only major difference is the goals total, which is a given since Jake has Crosby creating opportunities for him. While Barzal played really well with Crosby last night, if you put Guentzel in that 3-on-3 tournament you'd get the same results.</div></div>
Very much a pipedream yeah. But would love to see the Guentzel Crosby Barzal line. I think 2 firsts and 2 seconds gets you pretty close, maybe.
