    S Koivu or P Marleau ?

    Ehh i was just wondering who would be an overall better pick ?
    I do know Marleau is playing with Thornton, and Cheechoo and the Sharks are looking good, and id say Marleau is good for 80+ points this season.

    Though S Koivu has had a really strong start and is also on a solid Montreal team and is a proven player. His +/- is very impressive and i expect it to stay high.

    My current Centers are:
    Toews, Dubinsky, Briere, Getslaf. Looking to fire off a trade for Dubinsky while hes hot though. soo another C position will be available.

    Im leaning more towards Marleau as an overall player, would that be a wrong decision ?

    • Are you saying Saku and Joe are both FA in your league? or you are looking to go after one in a trade?

      I would take Marleau if you are picking in a trade... if they are FAs then why not both?

      • Over all who would be a better player, with Marleau now on a top line, he should hit his break out year people are expecting.

        Though Koivu seems as he will as well, Montreal is a strong healthy team, with the top PP unit last year, and with Koivu on the PP line for them now which still looks strong, i expect him to rake up some good points, +/- and hes actually known to take PIM about 93 last season.

        But overall who would be the smarter pick ? Sure if like them both, but i have Briere, Toews and Getzlaf already with a trade for Dubinsky pending.

        Soo im asking the elitists here who do you think is a smarter pick up, or should i do whatever to get them both ?
