I was responding to him laughing about Columbus not signing him. And let's emphasize the poor when talking about those seasons. His "injuries" are a bad excuse for
Straka's play at age 17 in the same league was impressive enough to get him drafted #55 overall. McGinn at age 17 wasn't doing anything in the CHL to put him on the NHL radar.

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.
McGinn's 30/30 season was at a better PPG pace than Straka's 40/40 season (1.52 vs 1.49). And you're right, Straka showed more promise at 17 than McGinn, but I'd rather a guy who progresses rather than regresses
