I've seen both, and man, those elite level games are pretty fun to watch... some ridiculous skills on display.
Honestly I haven't seen these adult league guys play, although I'm sure they're really good no doubt. However, some of these prospects are actually already playing against men and adults in the AHL, or ECHL. And those leagues even though not NHL level, are pretty darn good already, and they get to check. So without checking these kids really have even more room to work with. Yeah I would have to give the edge to the kids.
