Kind of different circumstances which make it hard to judge. Wennberg is actually only 7 months younger than Collberg and was brought early on to play in the Allsvenskan this year, where he's been very good. Collberg spent last year split between the J20 (where he was dominant) and the Elitserien (where he struggled). Last year Wennberg's J20 numbers were nothing special while Collberg got 44 points in 35 games in 10-11.

The way I see it Wennberg is going into the draft as a more complete player than Collberg, but without an elite calling card like Collberg's shot. In the WJC, Wennberg might have actually been the better player on 5 on 5 and did a lot of the little things right, but Collberg was a PP beast. Collberg was also injured, so we don't know how good he could have been.
Wennberg can't match Collberg's sniping skills but you won't find many forward prospects that can skate as well as Wennberg. On the ice he looks exactly like the forward version of Jonas Brodin, the way they are built and how they skate is very similar. Wennberg also has pretty good size but will need some time to get stronger.
