I see Jack Johnson and Cam Fowler comparisons thrown around a lot and it makes zero sense to me. Trouba isn't really that sort of pure offensive guy, and there's a more physical dimension to his game. To me, he looks like more of a smooth puckmoving all-around guy with a lower offensive ceiling a la what Bogosian has started to turn into.

I think a lot of teams would love to add a player like this, but i have a suspicion that like Bogosian, Trouba is going to take a bit of time to really warm up to the NHL.

To be honest I like the Bogosian comparison as Trouba is going to be more of a hard nosed/hard hitting defender then a puck rusher....but dont underestimate Trouba's offensive talents. I have watched the kid play probably 20 times over the past 3 plus years...the kid has skill.
Interesting comparison for sure. I would love to add a kid like that to our team.
