Straka as an over-ager put up a 40/40 season in the Q, McGinn as an over-ager in the Q was 30/30.
Straka strikes me as a top 6 or bust type guy at the NHL level. McGinn seems to be a safer bet at playing in the NHL longer (albeit a bottom 6 role).

I could see people making the argument for McGinn for that reason but I like Straka's offensive upside here over McGinn.
