As for comparisons, I'd read Jagr, but I got the impression that that particular little snippet had more to do with him being a big, skilled Czech than anything else. If he was like Federov, he really must've been something.


Jagr did come to mind as well as he scores goals in much the same manner as Ned did, but the skating styles between Federov and Ned were so similar to me. The first game I saw Fedorov play and saw the way he moved with and without the puck, I couldn't stop doing flashbacks in my mind and seeing Ned skate up and down the ice again. Not quite as fast, but just as smooth.

Put Nedomansky on the Canadiens or the Isles - wow, talk about unfair for the rest of the league, especially on the Canadiens. He would have been a great fit on the Canadiens - great skater, passer, etc. Lafleur would probably still have been the leading scorer, but Ned probably would have approached 100 pts / season with the caliber of linemates he would have had, once he got broken in with them.
