I know who I feel was and is better in junior.
First of all McNabb/Pysyk haven't even finished their season yet and you're comparing them to Crawford's end of season numbers. Great idea. Point per game:
McNabb 1,17
Crawford 1,03
Pysyk 0,69

Second, WHL is supposed to be a slightly defensive tighter league than OHL.

Third, comparing +/- is just stupid, since you have to look at the teams/matchup they play with, so you could make a case for Pysyk's being the most impressive out of these, because he plays on a below average team, where as Crawford played on the arguably best team in the OHL.

Fourth, Pysyk is one year behind, so what's the point? If you have to compare them by points, atleast use their 3rd year numbers:
McNabb 0,89
Pysyk 0,69
Crawford 0,646

And last, there's a lot more to ranking them than points, like intangibles, projections, physical talent, etc. Hell, Byron had statistically a better season than Couture in their senior year.
