Ean, I disagree with you on Lewis though, in fairness, this is highly subjective since we have seen so little of him.

What I saw from Lewis was an innate toughness. A willingness to sacrifice his body. The ability to be in good position without the puck. Lewis struck me as not just capable but also looking for the physical play along the boards as he was neither shy nor hesitant in digging for pucks and bumping players off the puck. I find comparisons, even when I make them, to rarely be perfect but Lewis strikes me as a similar player to Simmonds or a quiet version of Moller.

Purcell's talents are with the puck.
