Being from London i've seen Kane and Gagner all season long and i'll add my 2 cents in.

Gagner got off to an incredible start in the OHL and was leading Kane by 10-15 points early on but Kane has picked up his play significantly the past 2 months and now leads Gagner (by 5 points I think)... that just shows you how fast Kane has grown this year.

I remember in October or November some people didn't even have Kane in the first round, most as a mid to late first round pick. I know he has mad skill, but to put him in the top 3 or 5 to me is a little premature. If he keeps tearing up the OHL the last half the season and has a great playoffs, then i'd put him top 3 or 5 but not quite yet.

Right now i'd say Kane has the higher potential but Gagner is a safer pick. Kane reminds me a lot of Schremp, only a little faster.
