Anyway, it's hard to put a Brule label on Lazar. Gilbert had some concussions and some personal issues (partially as a result of concussions) that really set him back. If Brule managed to avoid head injuries, he might be an extremely effective NHL player today.
Lazar has 10X the hockey sense that Brule possesses. Physically they are pretty similar although Brule has a tendancy to go headhunting that Lazar doens't do. Lazar is also a smidge bigger/stronger than Brule was.

Everytime I see Lazar play, I can't help but think of Jarret Stoll when he was with Kootenay. Similar type game but Lazar's skating is much, much better.
