Wasn't comparing Dubi to Vinny in terms of ability, but more so in saying that Torts can't wait to mold him into the best player he can be. At least that's what the comment seemed to insinuate when I heard it. Pretty sure they said it during one of the NBC broadcasts from one of our later games this past season. Possibly the playoffs? Who knows...
But yea, I definitely think he has the ability to put up 60-70 points a season while also bringing to the table a bunch of other intangibles. I think he may end up being a different type of player than Brind'amour in terms of style, but he could definitely have the same type of impact on a team (production, leadership, physicality, etc).
