JAM is also older and has the opportunity to do so. Sure he has proven more than MSC and Thomas, but I think they have shown more at the same age than Audy-Marchessault did. MSC in the WHL basically matched Audy-Marchessault seasons in the Q, but all one year earlier considering their age. MSC is also two inch bigger, and in this case (5.11 vs. 5.09) it's a (statistically) rather significant difference.
In the end it's the same old question of potential vs. proven. Personally I think both MSC and CT have higher ceilings and I value it more important than the fact that Audy-Marchessault has already shown he can score in the AHL.
