Yup, and it should be Raffl every time. McGinn has good hands around the net, but Raffl is the better skater, passer, and he has much better positioning in all three zones. He is of course older and more polished, but I've always viewed McGinn as a fringe guy to begin with, whereas Raffl has a definite NHL future.
