<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>mothariah</b></div><div>Okay, so you're saying you want a player who had a bunch of points, looked honestly below average in his own zone, and couldn't help his team make the playoffs over Evgeni Kuznetsov, who really should have won the Conn Smythe
Barzal could lead the NHL in scoring. That doesn't mean he's the best player. FACT. Connor McDavid lead the league in scoring. He didn't win the Hart. You know who once won the Art Ross? Jamie Benn. Would you call him the best player in the league? Hell no. He's a great player, don't get me wrong. Probably on of the top 10 wingers in the league right now. But he is NOT the best player in the league.
Get a grip and lose your hometown bias towards Barzal. Prove to me he can play at that elite level without a superstar ahead of him on the depth chart, and for more than just one year.
Barzal is a good player, and he will probably be a great player for a long time. But settle down. He has a lot to prove yet.</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>linehan10</b></div><div>give me barzal over kuzy, getzlaf, eichel, and a bunch of others any day. Simple phrase: if you don't perform as well as a certain player, you're not better than that player</div></div>
barzal over Eichel hahahahahaha
linehan10 according to your awful logic David Perron is better than Joe Pavelski, Filip Forsberg, Anders Lee, Nikolaj Ehlers lol
you just simply dont know hockey if you think Barzal is already a top 50 player in the league he had one good year in the league. now if he continues to produce at the same
level he did last year without tavares eating all the tough minutes then yeah he will be on the list next year. but he needs to get better defensively and show he can be a top line guy before hes jumping guys like getzlaf who have already shown they can.
