    Default Lafreniere vs stutzle

    I have the option to acquire one of lafreniere or stueztle both are LW in this league, points only league as well. Price is the same for both essentially but who would you lean to for next years progression, before draft its obviously lafreniere but now stueztle is really showing he is going to be special and be one of ottawa's top dogs going forward. Would love to hear some opinions as lafreniere is having a tough time developing it seems as of right now(I understand both are only 19..)

    I am still going with Laffy. He's off to a slow start but he's still going to be a top notch NHLer. Would need to see more before flipping the order this early on. I think it's just the way things go - no full training camp, no rookie camp, no preseason, less time around your teammates to discuss things, team off to an up and down start collectively. Not every rookie would be impacted the same but I can see why he hasnt hit the ground running - but I feel like when the lightbulb turns on, it'll have been well worth the wait.

    I said before the season began that Lafreniere wouldn't be a great rookie due to the depth ahead of him on the left side. He's slowly climbing the depth chart, from the 3rd line to the 2nd now but the pucks still aren't going in for him, yet. We also knew that Ottawa needed Stuezle more then NY needed Lafreniere so his opportunities would be better.

    Long term, I still want Lafreniere.

    We had our entry draft in our 31 team dynasty league 2 weeks ago. Tim Stuetzle went 1st overall followed by Lafreniere and Byfield.

    Who knows how they turn out!

    if you had it before season started Laf would have been first...regency bias is a real thing in fantasy...

    to the OP, ask your self this: Who would you have taken before season started?....Whatever is the answer, it should not have changed based on 15 games...

    It's too close to call for me, and since I like Stuetzle's name better, so I'll go with him.

    Sometimes, you just need to break a tie in a weird way.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1 backup G, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G:Jarry
    Backup G: Shesterkin
    D: Carlson, Fox, Makar, M Reilly, Letang, Marino,
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, MacKinnon
    F3: Stamkos, Point, Guentzel
    F4: Tavares, JT Miller, Pearson

    Bench:
    G: F Andersen
    D: DeAngelo, Heiskanen, Klingberg, Pionk, Ekblad
    F: Benn, Seguin, Gurianov, Necas, Bertuzzi, Eriksson Ek
    Reserve: Datsyuk

    What's the cost though? What are you paying for one of these guys?

    I would pick Lafreniere, but would want to know what I'm giving up first.

    You know I was having this debate with my brother last night, which is better...

    Put me in the camp that believes Lafrenière went first for a reason. I say stick with him. As was said it's 15 games. Remember Stamkos's first year? Joe Thornton? Everyone evolves at a different pace and Ottawa is playing loose, as compared to the expectations on Broadway.

    Here's a question that won't really answer much, but certainly offers a differing opinion.

    How do you think Lafreniere would be doing if he was in Ottawa vs NY. Same thing for Stutzle. Of course it's hypothetical, but interesting to think how it could be going for both kids if their roles were reversed.

    Stutzle sure was flying last night. He looks pretty great. I wonder what's eating at Laf... bad coach... too many expectations... he doesn't look as fast and as strong as he did in junior... Maybe he needs the same growth hormone supplements Stutzle is taking... Or the ones Necas is taking...

    the whole rangers team looks step slower than they need to be ...i dont know what it is but there is nobody on that team that has been as good as better than expected maybe with exception of Miller. Even Panarin was slightly struggling based on expectations imo..and now he is gone.

    But yes, Sutzle has been very good, every game, other than the opener, i seen him play there was something he did that makes you go WOW. I dont know if had balls to take him over Lafreniere...and since i had picks 2 and 3 i tool Byfield and Sutzle but i been on Sutzle train for a while now and if i only had that 2nd pick it would have been him.
