Namestnikov's? To me I see a lot of Jordan Eberle in Namestnikov. Vlads 2 way game is very underrated, he's surprisingly gritty and isn't afraid to lean on you, he will not back away from a bigger opponent.. as a matter of fact he's more than likely to skate right at them. Namestnikov also has tremendous acceleration, balance in and out of traffic, and a great shot. His compete level shift to shift is pretty good too! In my opinion the biggest knock on him though is his consistency and his bonehead plays he makes once and a while. He's known for making a horrendous turnover here and there or tries to do way to much from time to time.. but his biggest flaws are all coachable and can be improved.
