Even though I despise the Hurricanes, this is a no-brainer. Skinner by a landslide.

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this one as well

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Dont get me wrong, Skinner was a beast, but Couture will get a lot of attention as well

I'm definitely on the Justin Bie... I mean Jeff Skinner bandwagon.

Since we faced them in the SCF, I developed an extreme hatred and it has carried on, couple that with the fact they always seem to ice at least a few major d-bags and it keeps the hatred going...

Kind of surprised not to see James Reimer on there.

Couture will win because he's from the West. IMO the West is more followed

No way. Skinner has this in the bag.

Not the sexiest pick, but I like Grabner for it. He scored his ass off on a weak team, and was one of only three guys on the Isles to run a +. Skinner and Couture got some nice linemates - Grabner got what, Frans Nielsen?

I know, right? Which other rookie has his own song? And with Autotune, no less! ;)

I'm gonna go with Skinner. Nice point about Grabner, though; he's done a lot with no help at all. Skinner just sticks out in my mind, though, from a non-scientific perspective.

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,
They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

Yeah, and together they form one of, if not the deadliest penalty killing combos in the league. 13 shorties between them. I'm just pimping a fellow Dane right now, but Frans is a decent player.

He isn't even 80 overall in NHL 11. How could he be a good player?
