<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MitchMarnerElite </b></div><div>That’s an interesting take actually cuz a week ago, I made a “who’s better” player discussion &amp; one of the comparisons was between Marner &amp; Guentzel. The majority of people who participated said Marner was better, which surprised me a bit. Based on this season’s performance, I think Guentzel was significantly better, however, I think they are actually very close overall. Jake probably has the edge due to his playoff performances. I’d expect Marner to have the higher ceiling though.

Who’d you guys think is better?

Gotta go with JG for multiple reasons. 1) Cap cost 2) Team player (see cap cost) 3) Hockey sense, he has that knack to be where the puck is gonna be (see Gretzky, Mario, Bure etc) Not saying he's gonna be on their level but he has that mojo. You can't go wrong with either considering their PPG but to me it's hands down JG.

What do you think of Rakell? Would he fit? Is the Price fair? Would Anaheim do it?</div></div>

I'd offer McCann-POJ-Rikkola-2021 1st for Rakell and their 2020 2nd. With both Zucker and JG sign long term on the left McCann is gonna cost more than is needed for a third line LW/C with a bad F/O %. Good player but he's redundant. Same with POJ, Dumo and MP have the left side locked for years to come with the O talent laced up on the RD side.
