So similar type player? I thought Ryan was more a point producer type player, rather then a projected power forward (not that PF's can't produce).
Similar body-types, similar skating styles but Dustin is an opportunistic goal-scorer (ie gets a lot of garbage goals) whereas Bobby is a playmaker. They both have great hands though Bobby's are better. If Dustin ever uses his size properly he could be a 50 goal scorer. But Bobby has a brighter future. But no way can he come close to what Dustin did last year for us this year. No way.
