Not exactly, he has great hands, he's more like an Ovechkin in terms of scoring goals and passion, style of play pure sniper, he's creative like Datsyuk. But offensively, maybe a guy like Malkin minus the size, but he reminds you of like 3 guys which is where you get the Malkin comparison from.
He plays more like Malkin then he does Datsyuk, hes too much of a scorer, and the commitment to D isn't there.
I'm not saying he will be as good as Malkin, but he reminds me of him.
He's defence is not close to a Datsyuk level, and that comparison is unfair, because then fans expect a level of defense that he doesn't have.
The only knock on him is that he's inconsistent, some nights he's there, some hes not. Some shifts he's invisible then he wakes up.
He can be quiet for the whole game and then explode, he was a pleasure to watch, and he is in my opinion the best player I have seen don a Lions Jersey, and maybe their best ever.
The only thing Dukey has on him is consistentcy and physical maturity, both can be hot headed, but you guys have a great player, I would have liked to have seen him one last time with the Lions.
Hopefully I get too see a mooseheads game.
