    Tarasenko. Pretty damn safe floor and probably higher ceiling than Rantanen.

    Tank for sure. He had a down year and should be back in form. Rantanen had an amazing year but will probably regress. He is also dependant on Mack whereas Tank is the guy that drives production for the Blues.

    With shots, hits, and hat tricks as categories I think it's pretty easily Tarasenko. Make this points only and it's definitely a discussion.

    Tarasenko for me. I think he'll get back into the 70 pt range this season, and hopefully flirt with 40 goals again. I would not be surprised to see some regression from the Colorado top line. On top of that you're looking at roughly 300 SOG while Rantanen hasn't exactly shown he's a volume shooter.

    Thanks for the replies. I knew this at heart but I think what concerned me was Tarasenkos offseason surgery. Rantanen really surprised me last season, as so Mack.

    Tarasenko pretty easily. I think Rantanen had his career year last year.
    I can't promise I'll try but I'll try to try.

    Tank now. Massive shooter compared to Rantanen. If Rantanen can show last year wasn’t a fluke, I’d consider it closer.

    I think bold Yes, I think last year was a pretty lucky year for Rantanen.

    I like Rantanen a whole lot, but with your categories you gotta go with Tarasenko here. You've got SOG and Goal-based categories in which Tank should really excel.

    As much as I love Rantanen the more proven commodity is Tarasenko, for now at least. If Rant can go PPG again then the conversation could change but right now Tank is safer.

    Tarasenko. St. Louis had a great offseason, a lot of people are high on them. Tarasenko also holds more name value in the trade market I would think.
