    Default Forsberg or Aho?

    Given that Aho is both C/LW and Forsberg is only LW, which of these guys would you keep?

    Categories are G, A, +/-, PIMs, PPP

    Thanks!

    I own Aho in a couple of leagues and would trade him for Forsberg pretty easily.

    I am taking Forsberg here, but it is damn close and Aho could easily become the better of the two in this set up. He is not there yet, but Aho will likely see better deployment in Carolina. Nashville does not cater to individual stars. This year will tell us a lot about Aho and his future production.

    I believe they have a similar scoring upside. At this point though Forsberg will have the edge in PIMs and +/- to go along with a longer record of top production so he should win out over Aho.

    Aho has 61 points in his last 69 games, and was dynamic at the spring World Championships. This is close enough to where the positional flexiblity would sway me to Aho.

    I'm leaning Forsberg but I'm intrigued by Aho's progression and what it could mean going forward.

    I'm curious about your decision as I know you value stretches of hot play during the back parts of the previous seasons (though in Aho's case it's most of the season). Forsberg missed time in the middle of the season and had 64 points in 67 games and was fairly consistent pre and post all-star break. As you are leaning towards Aho (for eligibility reasons as well, I understand that), clearly you feel he could take another step this year. How have you evaluated both sets of data and how do you project Forsberg?

    Thanks in advance.

    Forsberg for me, but it is very, very close.

    Positional requirements might make me change my mind.

    FF for me, but it's super close.

    Put me down for Forsberg, as well. Aho's dual eligibility is nice, but getting the most out of his value means using him at wing - precisely where you'd use Forsberg anyway. Plus, I think when you consider the rest of the peripheral categories (PPP, PIM, and +/-) you've gotta admit FF has an edge in all those categories. Scoring upside is probably similar, but Forsberg is the clear choice.

    I think Forsberg is maxed out due to ice time and stats like SOG and PPPts. Aho put up a great bulk of the season playing for a coach who didn't lean on his top line at ES or on the PP. Brind'Amour should give Aho the star treatment and as such I think he can ultimately be an 80-85+ point player whereas I see Forsberg following a Tarasenko trajectory - always falling a bit short after one "tease" year.
