I see a good comparison for Trouba is Luca Sbisa.
He'll be better than Sbisa. I don't like pumping prospects more than they deserve but from everything I've seen of Trouba so far he isn't much farther from Sbisa when he finally earned a regular start.
The comparisons to Johnson and Fowler are pretty unfounded. In the offensive zone maybe, but Trouba is more responsible in his own zone. Even more so than Jones. Jones took a lot of risks. Though it only costed him a couple times he was still playing it risky. Trouba played it safe and smart. I loved the pairing but trouba's poise blew me away as much as Jones' execution.
