Tampa fan here, watched Kuba and Hedman. They arent comparable.
Hedman is a 2nd year pro who logged over 20 minutes a night on a team that made the Eastern conference finals. Kuba was never a top 2 dman, for Tampa at least, Hedman is that already.
And as to why he is soft, he is being forced to learn his positional game before the coaching staff are willing to let him roam, that being said I never expect him to be a bruiser.
