    Getzlaf or Vanek

    Every website says I should keep Getzlaf over Vanek but I'm having a tough time accepting that. Vanek is on a high scoring Buffalo team and even though he had a bad year Vanek had 36 Goals and 19 of those PP. I just think Vanek might turn it around and get 80 plus pts. Getzlaf is a good player but he plays for Anaheim who is a defensive team. He doesn't give me as many Goals or PP. I can draft a guy who gets 20 goals and 50-60 A. Does anyone have anything to support me or lean me toward keeping Getzlaf.

    • Take Vanek and at the end of the season you'll have your answer. Let cognitive reason be your guide.

    • This is an easy answer... getzlaf he had an amazing year even without perry for most of it, vaneks best year came when he didnt face top checking lines... now he does constantly and his numbers dropped considerably... getzlaf faces the best and continues to improve. vanek being a winger is the only thing that would benifit over getzlaf

    • depending on what stats you keep getzlaf wont put up the goals but even on a team like anaheim he's a pt a gm, i still trust his durability based on his style of play over vanek's. a lot of so called experts claim that vanek is due for another big season because he just had a downer but i prefer consistency. getzlaf has become the #1 C in the pond unfortunately with no support other than perry. your man vanek has all kinds with pominville and roy coming into their own and maybe that floater afinogenov playing for a contract. all in all flip a coin and if you're in a keeper league go with vanek

    • Vanek is potentially better than Getzlaf because goals are hard to come by but he is being rated with a discount due to his relatively poor season. I'm not sure if you're talking about a trade, if so I would take a chance. If you're talking about drafting then why not take Vanek with a little bit of a discount...
