    Who would you rather have on your team? And once they do make the NHL, who are their current comparables in the league in terms of skill and styles of play?

    Hischier is a better prospect, I'd rather have Kaprizov right now though.

    Kaprizov is better right now. I think Hischier will be better long term but it'll be close, but both will be pretty special. Would take either in a heartbeat if I could.

    Is there an "all of the above" option?

    This. Hischier is 2 years younger, both phenomenal players. The Wild got a good one in Kaprizov, 5th round pick. He's putting up some good numbers in the KHL this year.

    What do you guys think, Hischier should be a lock for a top 3 pick? Any chance he pushes for #1 on anyones list?

    About 1.5 ppg at WJC, participation at WC in may with good points and he will have "Laine effect", but his opponents are weaker than Matthews. That is why I think that he has good chances

    With Patrick out, Liljegren getting mono/Dahlin stealing the spotlight, Hischier has a chance to climb the rankings. He's been fantastic during the WJC and exhibition games.

    How can you compare two players that have 2 years difference ... and at the 17-19 level ?? Hishier is just going to add might, experience ... everything during 2 years.

    Not saying that Kaprizov is not good ... just questioning the thread ... compare pear to pear, apple to apple.

    It is obvious that Hischier will be better in 2 years ... his ceilling is way higher.

    Where i grant something to this thread is that Hischier doesn't seem discomforted or suffering of his lack of power (due to age) ... therefore he may not benefit of increased power in the years to come as much as if he was clearly disadvantaged.

    I'm a little distrust of the players from the QMJHL, but the Swiss has a very good prospects. Wrong to compare players with a difference of 2 years

    Lol, Kaprizov is playing on par with guys like Panarin and Tarasenko in the KHL. So Hischier is going to be way better than all these guys? Then he's a future superstar, no less. Probably even a generational talent.
