Their close IMO. Andersson is more skilled and has higer upside--kind of in the Stralman range maybe where you could project that one day he could fill in decently as a top 4. I don't think you get that with Noreau--depending on how much his skating improves Noreau could surpass a Bickel skill wise. He's definitely a bottom pairing guy if he makes it. He sure can beat the bejesus out of people though. If ever him and McIlrath were paired together it would be scary.

And there's a difference between the way McIlrath or Noreau fight than how Bickel fights. Bickel is more of a wild brawler--which is a reason why sometimes guys like Ryan Carter will make him look bad. McIlrath and Noreau actually are very composed and punch for effect. They actually watch what the other guy is doing and look for openings. They have size, strength, reach and punching power.
