Hawerchuk was better than Perreault in my honest opinion.

Here are their top-10 finishes.

Hawerchuk: 3, 4, 7, 9

Perreault: 3, 4, 5, 8, 9

I'd say at the end of the day its a wash. At their best they were the 2nd best center in the league. Hawerchuk benefitted by having his best season when Lemieux was only a rookie and Perreault benefitted from not having to compete with Gretzky or Lemieux.
