Mika Zibanejad is the real deal.

I guess I was right about more than just his age eh?
While I must admit his hit numbers surprise me a little, I just don't see him as a physical player. As a matter of fact, players like Lee, Greening and Winchester all would have been ahead of him in hits had they played 82 games as well. BTW my comment about Nick's physical play wasn't meant as a comparative.
On your second point, Foligno did NOT lead the team in blocked shots, not close.
As far as the mass thing, we are talking about 3 pounds, nothing of any significance, even if their body types are different.
One point you may want to consider when looking at Nicks stats, he was 5th in TOI, which would/should have benefitted his stats in other areas. Nick had almost double the minutes Regin had.
