I want to make it clear that we are not getting either guy. This is purely hypothetical. It has been mentioned quite a bit that the Wings do not have a future #1 center in the pipeline. A Datsyuk, Crosby, Toews, Getzlaf, Staal, or Bergeron caliber guy. If the Wings had the choice of Steven Stamkos or John Tavares, and could get one of the two through a trade, who would you go with?
It is a tough choice. Personally, I would go with Tavares, as he has been able to carry a team without someone like Martin St. Louis next to him, and has shown to be less injury prone. But the Wings couldn't go wrong with either guy.
Again, it's not happening. Even if the Wings offered 5 first round picks, Nyquist, Sproul, and Mrazek, I still doubt Garth Snow or Stevie would take is seriously.
Who would you rather have? Let's hear it.
