I just came here to post the opposite. The Butcher is significantly bigger and is playing in a far better league.

The juniors are worse than the ECHL. Look at MSC, Nicholls, Noreau, Wilson: more points per game in juniors than the ECHL. This is consistent regardless of the type of player we are talking about.

Duclair could probably play in the ECHL right now, but maybe not because he may not be physically mature enough. He most certainly wouldn't be able to perform in the AHL right now.

Butcher is playing (well) in a league superior to the AHL. He seems like a superior prospect right now.
