I love the way both play, and CC has been impressing the hell out of me - not a timid player at all depite his size, gives 100% from what i have seen.
CC - 8GP: 5G, 7A, 12 pts, 12 SOG, 6 PIM, 1 PPG, ATOI 14:19
VT - 8GP: 5G, 5A, 10 pts, 26 SOG, 8 PIM, 1 PPG, ATOI 15:00
Pretty even except VT has way more shots...and the same goals. Insane S% for CC which obviously won't stay that high.
One major thing to consider is the KHL factor - a very fair thing to consider regardless of what a player says about returning to Russia.
I own VT in 2 and CC in only one keeper, and am considering making an offer of VT for Conacher as the central core of the deal(s) in at least 1.
Am I way off in comparing these two? Conacher seems to have transitioned from the AHL like it was nothing.
(maybe a mod could fix the title of the thead for me?
Tarasenko was drafted and Cory was not. Both have played against men the past couple years. Both will have nice linemates. I would go Tarasenko in goal heavy leagues or points only. If it's PIM, Conacher may have a slight edge, especially if he eventually ends up flanking Stamkos. However, Tara is a building block. Cory is a complimentary piece. Tara will mean more to St.L. than Cory will be for TB.
