My style of play is comparable to Filip Kuba IMO.
Similarities: I get a lot more assists then goals (last season for Kuba), usually have a decent +/-, my shot isn't that good but I think I've got pretty good vision of the ice. I'm not very physical, instead preferring positional hockey. I'm pretty disciplined too. I make the small plays happen and work my rear end off, but I won't end up with any highlight reel material. I can play PP and PK, and I can block shots when I have to.
Difference being: I don't have his size (6' vs 6'5") and I rush the puck up the ice more than Kuba does. I think my skating compared to players in my league is better than Kuba's speed compared to other NHLers. And the final major difference is that I'm not good enough for the NHL.
