    Default Nurse or Morrissey in a keeper league

    Hi everyone,
    I'm a new GM in a league with a expansion team and a need to decide between Nurse and Morrissey because I can only choose one of the two.

    It's a keeper league points only with 3 defensemans counting. I want to know who's going to be the best asset in 3-4 years because right now I will not be competitive.

    Can you give me what you think will be their upside?

    Thanks

    Points only I'd go with Morrissey no doubt.

    Morrissey 50pts upside
    Nurse 40pts upside
    Points only keeper league
    7 teams
    28 keepers
    Weekly line up: 12 F / 6 D / 2 G
    Goalie stats: W=2 / SO=2

    I like both. And this is pretty even imo

    Flip a coin.

    I'm higher on Nurse than most and believe he can be the ppqb there. Morrissey is probably the safer play.

    I am not a fan of either guy for points but I do think Morrissey has the better skillset to produce if given the opportunity.

    Points only league is a toss up. I think Nurse has the least obstructive path in front of him. EDM has very few Dmen. Morrissey has more to contend with in his path. Like it was said...... I like Morrissey upside more, but only if given the opportunity. Big if in my opinion.

    It really is a toss up, the difference between the two won't make or break your team. I'd personally would go with Nurse.

    This would be my approach as well. Not a big enough difference between the two to not swing for the fences on the off chance that Nurse shares a lot more ice with McDavid, and can earn some more ice time moving forward. Just seems to me that it's more likely Nurse lucks into more icetime and ups his assist rate than Morrissey.

    I see it as the opposite for ice time. There's really no one in Edm Nurse can't replace or beat out of a job. Morrissey in Wpg has Byfuglien & to a lesser extent Trouba to eclipse (I can see him taking PP time from Trouba next year) -- Nurse is on the brink of busting through. A slow start from Klefbom next year will only further hand him the torch in Edm. Due to open opportunity, I'd take Nurse

    This is what I meant, I think the way I worded it was awkward.

    This Oiler fan would go with Morrissey.

    If your team is 3-4 years out you might want to be asking, "who is more valuable in a trade right now?", and try to gain some futures while still keeping one of them.

    Good luck with your expansion project!

    Meh, I don't see either ever living up to their initial hype. Gimme Morrissey I guess.
