Well hockey IQ is very subjective so I won't argue it much. At least I think we can agree both have very high IQ that should make them successful.
Classifying Nate as a "pure goal scorer" is kind of ridiculous, though, when it's what he does with the puck (and without these days) in the other 2 zones, too, that makes him as great as he is. Which is to say, that moniker sells his talent way short, and doesn't quite reflect the reality of how he makes an impact on games.
