Since one of his best comparables is Cole, who is having one of his best seasons at 33/34, I'd say its not entirely accurate. For one thing, while statistical analysis is useful, it ignores the different types of scoring wingers, along with individual behaviours. Patches is a fitness nut and will likely be able to play at hid peak far beyond 26.

The analysis is pretty basic and mostly a preliminary glance on the subject. Semin is an east-west winger who relies on his release and insane puck control. Patches is north-south who uses speed and size to get to the net. Semin is also a enigma while Patches is a workhorse. Kinda hard to compare the 2.
