I guess it's fair to say that the Danes develop well-rounded hockey players

I can't comment on the other two yet, as I've only seen a couple of Boedker's games and haven't seen Nielsen play yet... but Hansen looks to be a solid 2-way player, being a perfect fit on the right side with Kesler and Burrows, forming the canucks top shutdown line. He's played every game against the top lines, while playing on the PK and not getting any PP time, and has 7 pts in 11 games. He's also been a prominent part of that line, and isn't just being carried by better players. Looks to have all the tools too... very good skater, good shot, works his butt off every shift.

Still early in his career, but he looks like a solid all-around player who'll only get better.
