Actually it isn't that hard to understand. NHL players are merely a point of reference to the type of player in our own league. Look at the NHL draft, they compare Drew Doughty to Ray Bourque. Does that mean Doughty can step into the NHL and be as good as Bourque? While in part this is also a projection, scouts will always say this player plays like <insert good NHLer here>. Same thing in this thread... though of course there are people that get a little carried away

Alternatively if you'd like a proper 1:1 comparison, I could for example say I skate like Dave Andreychuk, fight like Wayne Gretzky, shoot like Brandon Reid, and stick handle like George Parros. Would that make a better thread?
