Is EP as good as PB?

does he have more promise?

Does he skate as good as PB?

PB still scored more goals than EP in rookie season.

I still favor PB

I gotta go with EP. Bure was faster but EP not only stick handles better but is a better setup man. Pavel Bure was chiefly about speed. He could catch people flat footed and was so fast that often the opponents including the Goalie couldn't recover. I also like EP's demeanor a bit better.
PB seemed a bit stuck on himself. Don't get me wrong, I would love to have both on the team in their prime at the same time (could you imagine).

Tell me how long must a fan be strong? Ans. Always.
