    Default Dubois vs Konecny

    Which do people like more both short and long term, and what do you think their upsides are?
    Categories: G, A, +/-, PIM, SOG, Hit, Blk, STP

    Last year Dubois had LW, C eligibility in ESPN. Since LW is listed as his primary he will probably continue to have both for a few years.
    Last year Konecny had C, LW, RW eligibility in ESPN. Since C is listed as his primary he will probably at least have that plus whichever wing(s) he actually plays for a few years.

    Perhaps name a comparable player for each that you think represents their upside, as well?

    Rep for detailed and interesting answers that address multi-cat considerations, not purely scoring. Thanks!

    Both guys will be in my week three cage match tournament, so if you can wait until then you'll see what the vote tell you. From my vantage point, I'm going with Dubois because Panarin got hot once he was put with Dubois, so chances are they stay stapled together and points will come to Dubois in droves. Dubois is also on PP1, and although Konecny should have the inside track to stay with Claude and Couturier at ES, he's likely destined for PP2, which, although improved since it will have one of Couturier, Voracek, Simmonds, or JVR also on it, still won't hold a candle to PP1.

    Pretty much sums it up for me too.

    Konecny could float up and down the lineup from time to time where as PLD is pretty much cemented himself as one of the top centers on CBJ.

    PLD was drafted higher than Konecny and has higher upside than Konecny. As already mentioned he is one of the main guys in Columbus whereas Konecny is a secondary option behind the big guns in Philly and I don't think will see any PP1 time in the near future.

    Dang this one is close.. I think ill lean Dubois though , based on the fact that he's gonna be their 1C now and for the future. Whereas Kone may not always be on the top line.

    Dubois and I am a bit of a Konecny fanboy.
