Mika Zibanejad is the real deal.

As for your thoughts on Nick being better suited for 3rd line duty, at 6' 208 he isn't bigger than Regin (6'2' 205), he isn't as fast as Regin, he isn't as defensively aware as Regin and while he could be more physical he isn't, primarily because he sees himself as a top six scorer.
The one thing you are right about, he is younger, by a year and a few months.
So Nick isn't assured of anything, any more than Regin, Da Costa, or any of the young guys looking for jobs. What might save some of them is the one-way deals, for the short term
Foligno was third on the team in hits 101, more than triple Regin's total. He also lead the team in blocked shots.
Additionally, if Foligno is 6' 208lbs while Regin is 3 inches taller and weighs less, not only does Foligno have more mass, he is likely more built than Regin.
I guess I was right about more than just his age eh?
