As far as individual skills go, I'd give Makarov the edge in skating, 1-on-1 skills and goal-scoring. This is based on 30 games or so that I've seen. Then again, I'm no hockey analyst or haven't really 'studied' it, so it would be interesting to see what a more of an expert is going to say.
Just to add: of course Makarov probably had some big advantages, like playing on teams that were mostly better-coached and physically stronger plus he had Fetisov and Kasatonov on defense, but I'm sure all this will be taken into consideration.
