The new NHL is BASED on speed and stick skills.
See: Jeff Skinner, Erik Karlsson, Tobias Enstrom, Patrick Kane.
Also I don't get your rebuttal here...
Filatov is to Patrick Kane as Tarasenko is to Toews.
Just because Toews has 2 way effort, physical game and near equal offensive skill-set to the players in his draft year does not mean he is bounds and leaps over Kane's offensive skill set, there is a word for that that many HFboarders love,
. It's actually Kane who wins in terms of skill against Toews.
If you told me that Tarasenko is a better player to form a franchise around and better player in all-situations I would agree but not in terms of high-end skill.
I would think if Kane or Skinner played 75 games in the AHL they would have more than 52 points.
