    Default Dylan Sikura vs Daniel Sprong

    I've seen threads on here that do have some discussions on both players, but none that are a simple one vs one, so I figured I'd crowd source an opinion.

    I need a RW (both are RW eligible in my league), and am struggling choosing between the two. It seems both have potential for top 6 roles this year, playing with superstars (Kane vs Crosby or Malkin, etc), and PP2 roles.

    Dobber's recent Top 300 Skaters list had Sikura in front of Sprong, but I know at the level they're at, the difference for him isn't major. What does the Dobber Forum think?

    I voted Sikura because I think he's got a better shot at playing on the either the 1st or 2nd line. I think Sprong slots in on the 3rd. Just a guess, though.
    12 team lifetime pool. 18 skaters - No positional requirements / 3 goalies (2 count for points)
    Taxi Squad - players have 5 year protection then must be called up or dropped.
    Goals and Assists count for points. Goalies get 1.5 for a win / 4.5 pts for a SO and points for G/A.

    Skaters:
    Kapanen, Bjork, Athanasiou, A. Johnsson, Cirelli, Sheary, Foegele, Compher, Bratt, Ho Sang, Kaprizov, Shattenkirk, Jankowski, Jokiharju, Terry, Bertuzzi, Zykov, Hinostroza


    Goalies:
    Varlamov, Demko, Husso

    Taxi:
    Borgstrom, Sprong, Kyrou, Liljegren, Kravtsov, Bokk

    If it is for next year only, I'd say Sikura. He is more than 2 years older than Sprong and it appears that Chicago has pledged to rely on him, at least unless he fails. Sprong's usage seems more subject to coaching whims. If it is for a keeper, I'd pick Sprong as all indicators suggest that Sprong is more offensively gifted.

    if we're looking short term. I'd go Sikura. More assured a spot to start than Sprong... could he even sneak onto PP1 during next season with Kane, DeBrincat, Toews?

    Totally realized my signature didn't include whether it's a keeper or not - this is an entire roster keeper league. So with that mind, it kind of seems the posters are leaning Sprong. The poll is quite close though, which at least proves that these two are close to the point where it's almost who do you prefer on a personal level.

    Sprong in a keeper. He projects better long-term, Pittsburgh has more (quantity) high-end talent to play with, and he proved he can play at a high level as a pro. In my opinion it would just be a matter of time until selecting Sprong over Sikura breaks even. Sprong would have to flip really hard, but his skating and multiple tools suggest that's unlikely.

    Man, this one is really hard. Sprong has been the sexier name, but his injuries have to be a concern. I wonder if he gets the better pt/gp ratios, but plays less games, therefore being less valuable.
