I would flip that around, on pure upside Kreider blows Scheifele away imo. His combo of size and speed is pretty much unique currently in the NHL, and he's had an NHL caliber shot for a few years now. He's a little lacking in the hockey sense area, but most power forwards are and his speed will help cover a lot of that.
I would take Kreider here, although I do like Scheifele as well. It's true there's less competition in Winnipeg, but I still prefer Kreider both short and long term.
