    Default [Cage Match Tournament] #1 Malkin vs. #2 Giroux

    Oh boy, oh boy! Now it's the Elite Eight folks. That means we are throwing down like a dirty diaper, nothing but ones and twos. Remember, this poll is for a points only keeper league. Make sure you read the article on the front page to see the full bracket and get caught up on the action but for now cast your votes and comment away, we want to hear what you have to say!

    Here are links to the other polls this round:

    #1 Ovechkin vs. #2 Crosby
    #1 H. Sedin vs. #2 D. Sedin
    #1 Stamkos vs. #2 Tavares

    Hockeyrobot: I was just going to make the same comment. Malkin = Top 3/4, Giroux while great and he's my boy, is just not in Malkin's league.

    Giroux has made a massive stride, and would advance if he was playing Tavares and maybe a Sedin, but not Geno.

    I'll be the first to publicly admit that I was one of the 8 who voted Giroux on this one.

    No doubt Malkin is the more talented player, but the gap isn't enough to overcome my own concerns about the long-term stability of his knee.

    i think the gap is huge. giroux is a star, but malkin is in a league of his own.

    This is a pretty tough one. All things being equal, I think you have to say Malkin here. He has missed time in the past though and Crosby has missed time too, so I personally would worry just slightly about an injury risk. I know that can be debated heavily, but I chose Giroux for that reason. Now that I see the results, I don't think my opinion matters all that much.

    I will admit to being another one. Even if they are in tight scoring races for the next 5 years, I'd rather some consistency from Giroux.

    fair enough boys ..... I was looking at it this way. I have Giroux in my points only keeper with my buddies and if I was offered Malkin for him I would do it.

    I'm confident Malkin will stay healthy enough.
