Brad Richards. I don't get the Joe Sakic comparison. Sakic has a better release, has more leadership and all-around intagibles than Maxwell. Maxwell didn't seem to carry the line in a mental capacity, but he is a rookie. He was just poised with a veteran calm, made good decisions, turned away from checks, didn't let his size hamper him (he looked small) and he's got more playmaking skills than shooting skills. I'd say Brad Richards is a better comparison right now.
