I've watched him regularly via his play with the Avalanche. I see him as a plug and play 3rd line utility Center. Yes to the PK which was pretty good for the Avs this season but Landeskog has something to do with that.
Jay is pretty much as you describe with very little in the way of hands and finishing skills to his game. Gaustad w/o the size or the fight in him. He does play a physical fore checking game but is usually late to the play as a F1 forward. Could be a lack of speed or could be the system Sacco plays here.
He's never excited me much but a lot of people on this board seem to like him. It's probably not comparable (he may not be even available since I'm too lazy to look up the data) but I'd rather have Hanzal.
