    Default Nyquist or Tarasenko

    Points only.... I have an offer on the table and I can have either guy. Tough decision as I think Tarasenko's upside is higher.

    I'd go for Gustav. Blues have so many forwards. Tarasenko does have more upside in terms of pure ability, though.

    I have to agree with Angus on this one.
    Nyquist will have more opportunity, especially if Filppula moves on.

    I'd go with Tarasenko, he has All-Star potential. Nyquist is a very good player but I just can't pass on Tarasenko's upside.

    Tarasenko may have a higher upside, but I would rather own Nyquist the next two years as I think he will do much better than Tarasenko. He will get better oportunities to produce.

    Tarasenko is the more offensively gifted player and his time to shine will be up to him and no one else. If he brings his A- game next year he will be given the opportunity to put up points. Absolutely no different than Nyqvist. Don't pass on a young stud because even if Nyqvist outpoints Tarasenko the next year or two (he might or he might not) it won't be by much and one day Tarasenko is going to be a much better player to own.

    I'd rather have Tarasenko, but that's because I'm in a multicat league. In points only it's closer but I still give the edge to Tarasenko. Nyquist is good but he will need time to adjust to the NHL.
    GO WINGS!

    All these opinions are very interesting. I wonder why Dobber thinks Nyqist is the next Datsyuk capable of putting up 85+ when nobody else does....

    I think Filppula is all but gone in Detroit. They have a ton of forwards already under contract and with Nyquist, Andersson and Tatar ready to play a full time role....there is no room.

    Like Angus said above....too many top 6 forwards on STL ...I go with Nyquist until a someone on the Blues can prove me wrong.

    Tarasenko for me. I like both players and recently had both on my team but traded Nyquist - I still like his upside but not as much as Tarasenko's.

    I tend to swing for the fences with prospects and Nyquist is a short single for me. Tarasenko could be the homerun.
