Pysyk is in a different league as far as Hockey IQ and Defensive play than McKnabb. McKnabb has the advantage of being more offensive minded and physically imposing.

Right now they are probably 50/50. To me McKnabb's offensive game and physicality isn't far enough ahead of Pysyk's smarts to give him the advantage he should have with an extra year of pro experience. In fact I'm not convinced that McKnabb will consistently score more (overall points) than Pysyk at the NHL level just because guys as smart as Pysyk generally rack up a lot of assists.

If you want a guy to blow open a game by laying a huge hit at center ice, taking the puck and rushing down ice and scoring while playing decent defense then McKnabb is your style. If you want a guy who prevents those sort of plays from happening to your team while providing decent offensive ability then Psysk is your style.
