Skating is nice and all, but I'll take the guy with the advanced feel for the game with the puck on his stick. There's talk that Winther might need to move off the center position going forward. I haven't heard anything about that regarding Shore. If that indeed happens Shore becomes the more valuable prospect even if you consider them equal otherwise.
This is exactly why I chose Shore this round and will chose Winther next. I believe that hockey sense is one of, if not the most, important quality when evaluating a prospect and projecting their likelihood to make an impact in the NHL.
