    GP doesn't tell much of the story as Seguin had a lot of games with short minutes.

    You're right. 

    It also doesn't tell much of the story about Seguin playing with Stanley cup winning teammates in his career also.

    Obviously a bonus for a young player.

    They're coming to the end of their EL contracts, so I'd say this is it for instant analysis: they are neck and neck.  Nothing is clear in terms of who is better now let alone who will be better.  Now it's time to sit back and enjoy watching the rest of their careers to see which one is "better" - but it may well be  1983 all over again.  Who was the better choice - Lafontaine or Yzerman?  (Hard to believe now that they went 3-4 and not 1-2.)  Other than Lafontaine's health issues, you'd be hard pressed to pick one guy or the othe just on their numbers - Yzerman had more 50+ goal seasons, but Lafontaine has the higher goals/game for his career; Yzerman was a point/game player right out of the box, and sacrificed numbers to become a better all around leader for the Wings.  Lafontaine was more responsible right out of the gate, but it took him 4 years to be a point/game guy.  For the Skinner factor in this comparison - 1983 was Neely's draft year, or you could throw out John MacLean's 400+ goals or Tom Barrasso's two Cups and that rare combo winning the Vezina and Calder in the same year.

    All I can say is it was a bad year to have the 21st pick and worse, to use it on Markwart.  Probert, Tocchet, Stevens, Hasek were all drafted later that year, and just for fun, imagine how Bruin history might have changed if all else remained the same, but the Bruins had drafted Klima and Claude Lemieux.

    Brian Lawton was #1 and Sylvain Turgeon was #2 that year
