I'd compare him to Stastny of two years ago.
Not really no. Toews wasn't way better defensively than Galchenyuk is right now in his junior days... and you're out of lunch if he isn't and ever will be known for his defensive style. Trevor Timmins was so proud of the way he played without the puck and his awareness defensively. So was a tons of scout. He is average at the faceoff at 50% mark, but its easy to become better at faceoff with the years.
You're very very undeducated about the Habs if you think they will turn this gem into a winger. Habs have full of prospect and good player right now on the wing, they drafted him to be their #1 centre.
I've seen the comparison of Toews a lot... Stastny doesn't have his power, strength, wrist shot and grit. Worst comparison I've seen from a while.
