Based on what?

Kadri and Schenn have taken basically the same path and put up basically the same numbers in their respective pro careers. I think there's a huge misconception that Schenn is some kind of defensive stud, although his +/- has been awful with both the Flyers and Phantoms. Sure +/- is an imperfect stat, but when you're noticeably worse than the rest of the team, you can draw a pretty conclusive decision that he has struggled defensively since turning pro.

Kadri by no means is a strong defensive player, but I would argue that he has higher offensive upside because of his high end vision, hands and playmaking ability. If Schenn succeeds at the NHL level, it will be because he learned to use is size and strength in a power forward role. They will be different players, but both have a good chance at having long, successful careers as NHL top six forwards.
