I don't follow pro hockey since the kneeling incident a couple years ago, so I don't know you Makar compares with the guys on my list, but here is my off-the-cuff list of great NHL players to also play NCAA
I'm quite sure I missed several very good players, but that is what I came up with off the top of my head.
Let's talk about it over some Makar's Mark bourbon.
Both are going to be great defensemen going forward. Fox has great IQ and passing ability, and is the right spot defensively. Makar physical talent if off the chart, and has outstanding speed, there was a reason why Makar was out on the ice every time McDavid was
Go watch the twitter clip from 9:44pm EST, 6/13/22. I rest my case and to the guy that thinks Fox is close.. he’s not
Makar is to D what McDavid is (was) to offense.
In a pool of talented professional athletes they are both on a different level.
That said, if you are ranking NHL D men Makar is clearly the most talented but Fox is likely number 2.
I doubt I would spend millions more of valuable salary cap to get Makar over Fox. Equal pay though I would definitely take Makar.
And Makar’s production is better. All 31 teams would take Makar over Fox….including the Rangers.
He’s fun to watch, got to watch him out here in sticks at the zoo. If he stays healthy hell have Bobby Orr type numbers. Enjoy the show.
