Many hockey analysts are comparing the Blackhawks top 2013 draft pick, 18-year-old Ryan Hartman, to Blackhawks fan favorite Andrew Shaw. Of course, there's only one way to truly see how much these two have in common: with a RedEye faceoff.
Shaw: 5-foot-11, 165 pounds
Hartman: 5-foot-11, 185 pounds
Edge: Hartman. The extra weight comes in handy when you're picking on players who are bigger than you.
Shaw: Loves shin pads.
Hartman: Enjoys the Shedd Aquarium.
Edge: Shaw. Those shin pads won a Stanley Cup Final game. In triple overtime.
FIGHTS IN 2012-13
Edge: Hartman. Chicago loves a fighter.
Shaw: Dropped an F-bomb on live TV after scoring the winning goal in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.
Hartman: He's well-spoken but has just begun doing press. Nothing too wild.
Edge: Shaw. It takes guts to not give a [bleep] about what you say sometimes.
LAST SEEN IN CHICAGO
Shaw: Re-enacting the famous "Titanic" scene with Patrick Kane, and tweeting the photo
Hartman: Observing Blackhawks prospect camp.
Edge: Shaw. He's more movie star material at this point in his career.
Shaw, 3-2. The Hartman kid shows potential, but Shaw had quite the 2013, and that's tough to top.
