Kyle Rau has always been known as the more skilled offensive player. Thats just how the gophers utilize him, his size is by far the biggest thing holding him back in a physical league. His hands are very very good, better than most people give him credit for and he's always been considered a dynamic player with his speed and ability to burn defenders from anywhere on the ice.
Haula's game is far more based on his positioning and hustle to make good plays. His shot and hands are pretty good but not elite in my opinion.
