For those who have seen these two play quite a lot, who do you think is the better of the two or who has the higher potential to be better in the nhl?

Can't tell really, ones 18 and ones 16...
Im sure they will both do good in the NHL.... unless one pulls a Radulov, and thats more than likely to be Yapupov :P
But he's shown interest in the NHL so he'll probably stay

Yakupov is better now, that's 100% sure. However, I'd wager Nathan being the better player once they both make the show.

In the short term, Nail Yakupov, but both will be a doozy in the NHL. The future looks bright.
It only takes one hard fought series to make a rivalry

Yakupov is going to be good, but MacKinnon is going to be something else.

Haven't seen much of them play myself but from what I've read and what my friends in Halifax say MacKinnon is the real deal.

Mackinnon is only 16 and already dominating the Quebec league. Can't wait to see what this kid does in the Pros.

Mackinnon, he's one of the only players ever to be granted exceptional status. Last person to do that in Canada was Sideny Crosby.

MacKinninon light Q last year. As a 16 year old 78 pts in 58 games that's awesome. Nail is good in his own respects, and will make a killer player in the NHL, but MacKinnon is already better than a lot of players in the Q I can't imagine how good he will be in 2 years after he has time to develop in the QMJHL.

The name Nathan Mackinnon makes me think bust for some reason.. even though he won't be, I think Yakupov will be sick though.

The rule wasn't even made when Crosby was in Junior. The rule was made when John Tavares was 15.

Neither of them were granted that status, the rule is only in the OHL.
Only Tavares, Aaron Ekblad, and now Connor MacDavid have been granted it.
