Another Honest Query

Here's another one I just happened to think of: who will be the best center in the Pacific next season?

 

Will it be:

 


Anze Kopitar

#11 / Center / Los Angeles Kings

6-3

227

Aug 24, 1987


 

Or possibly:


Ryan Getzlaf

#15 / Center / Anaheim Ducks

6-4

220

May 10, 1985



I mean, I can see arguments for both sides. Kopitar is probably better defensively but Getzlaf's point totals are always impressive. Kopitar plays with worse teammates, Getzlaf generally plays against the toughest competition every night. Both had injuries that affected them last season. The only thing different about them is that Kopitar's a gentle soul and Getzlaf's an complete asshole. I don't know, I think it's a good question. What do you think?
