Perry vs. Lucic, Domi vs. Galchenyuk, Montreal vs. Ottawa

Two players that I’ve covered in recent Ramblings are Corey Perry and Milan Lucic, so it’s fitting that I’d receive a question from the Dobber Sports Facebook page from my last Ramblings about who would be better to own. I think it depends on the league.

See the first league below, which counts penalty minutes but not hits:

Lucic provides his share of penalty minutes, but so does Perry. Even though last season was Lucic’s worst since 2009-10, there is still a chance he can rebound from a sub-40-point season and a single-digit power-play-point total, either in Edmonton or somewhere else. The lack of power-play points was not related to lack of opportunity, as he was regularly used on the first-unit power play. In fact, Lucic went nearly three months without a single power-play point. Perry would clearly be the player I would go with in this league format, or any league format that emphasizes scoring.

But in this league that counts hits but not penalty minutes:
