    Default Konecny vs Granlund points only

    Who would you rather own in a points only league moving forward?

    Thanks

    It’s pretty close but i would go Granlund just because he will play with better linemates ( and better team )
    8 team, Dynasty, points only, 30 players, keep 20
    Starts 12 F, 6 D, 2G , unlimited prospects(can keep them max 5 years)

    F: Mackinnon,Marner, Panarin, Eichel, Fiala, Hughes, Svechnikov, Robertson, Bratt, Vrana, Hischier, Tuch

    D: Hughes, Hamilton, Pionk, Gostibehere,Slavin,Dunn,Burns,Slavin

    Age:

    Konecny is 25 (entering prime)
    Granlund is 30. (entering the back nine)

    Advantage - Konecny

    Linemates/Team
    Granlund has better teammates in Duchene/Forsberg but I think that he is going to get passed on the top powerplay unit by Tomasino/Glass/Niedereitter
    Konecny should be a lock on the top PP unit and should have a better scoring team with DeAngelo added and Couturier back healthy.

    Advantage - Tie

    CoachKonecny - Tortorella as a coach is going to hold the team back offensively. Konecny plays the style of game that Tortorella will like.
    Granlund - It doesn't matter who is coaching Nashville - it won't have as negative of impact as Torts in Philly.

    Advantage - Granlund


    History

    Both players have some 60 points seasons under the belt. Granlund is coming off one last year. Therefore I think he will regress this year.

    advantage - tie


    Overall

    I think it is close - but deciding between two players at this range I am swinging for the fence and going for the younger guys that I think can take a step forward.

    I mostly agree with Penguin Hunter, although I do think (desperately hope?) that Fletcher is on his last coaching hire in Philly. Therefore I give Torts a max of 2 years to get the Flyers to the playoffs, which won't likely happen. So Konecny will have time under a different coach or the team will find success.

    I would also take the young guy in Konecny.
    10 team H2H dynasty. 33 player roster, 2 round draft. Start 1 G, 1 backup G, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only Goals, Assists, Save% matter. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: Shesterkin
    Backup G: Oettinger
    D: Carlson, Makar, Letang, Eklblad, Fox, Trouba

    F1: Necas, Teravainen, Robertson
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, MacKinnon
    F3: Stamkos, Point, Guentzel
    F4: JT Miller, Boeser, Bertuzzi

    Bench: 2 empty spots for draftees
    G: (none)
    D: Heiskanen, Klingberg, M Reilly
    F: Voracek, Benn, Seguin, Couturier, Giroux, Dahlen, Perfetti, Newhook
    Reserve: Datsyuk
