Last year I heard Kevin Allen tell Sean Baligian on "It is what it is" (as it was back then) that the player that he most thought Abdelkader most favorably compared to was Samuel Phalsson (did I spell that right... gotta check that). I wouldn't judge Abby's potential based on what we've seen so far. I think he just has to figure out how to play his game at the NHL level. There must be some good reason the Wings selected him over Paul Stastny.

edit: It's Pahlsson
