I'd say Pysyk is a better skater right now and that his ability to make good offensive plays surpasses McCabe's. I think McCabe looks like a much tougher opponent physically than Pysyk did at that age -- very good at winning board battles, from what I've seen, and more willing to step up and make a check vs almost always relying on his stick and positioning.

Both look like they should be solid shutdown d-men at the next level if they continue progressing down the path they're on.
