having said that, i would still rather have tarasenko or evgeny kuznetsov over both of them.
Agreed on tarasenko. Not sure yet with the D. Fowler is obviously way better than McI, not even close. The two are utterly different players though and what McI brings to the table in the end may be worth more than 50 pt D man who still is -10. Fowler's D is worse than I thought it'd be. McI's is too though I was really beggin for tarasenko there anyway. FOwler just isn't good enough for me personally right now to call it...thougnin 2 years he likely will be while McI isn't even in the NHl yet.
