at worst, I break even imo. I could lose this deal,but imo, backsteom is a top 10 Player.
L'Útang is better than pk, but nit considerably.
Are there assists? or straight goals?
I prefer Backstrom/PK only because there's more of a known factor with Backstrom, he's usually right around the 20-25 goal mark, but could push 30... PK is around the 10 mark give or take but could be up towards 15...
Eberle had a very good year last year, but is also shot a crazy 18.9% as well, so that might be a feat harder to repeat from a year to year basis. If he regresses back to 15%, he's dropping about 7 goals... Letang is pretty consistent at posting around 10 goals per season, but I dunno if there's a lot of room for much more.
Either way both sides is pretty even, you won't gain a huge edge with one side over the other... Backstrom is a bit safer but if Eberle/Letang can keep up their elevated rates, they could have a higher upside.
