Stefonovich is actually the softer of the two players.
Only because he's the only semi-decent forward prospect that Toronto has. Hayes is big, but not overly talented. Chris DiD isn't doing all that well offensively considering 1) his size; and 2) he's in the QMJHL, which is offense-minded. The rest of the forward prospects are just garbage.

Those are the only 3 prospects with a shot at making the top 20 NYR prospects, and none of them would be in the top 10.

The best skater prospect is a defenseman who was described by HF as, "He looks like he has a shot to play in the NHL, but probably as a depth defenseman."

And he's supposed to be the best skater prospect on the Maple Laughs.

I would do Zherdev for Stemp if Toronto also added Chris DiDomenico, Stefanovich and Stalberg. Maybe one of them will actually become a second liner, so it would be a second liner and a third liner (White) for a first liner Zherdev.

But Toronto will start screaming because given that they are the team's only prospects, the fans are sure that they are actually good. On the Rangers, nobody would know their names.
