Now that Kadri as the shiny new toy and top prospect has cooled down, what are some realistic NHL compareables Naz is likely to be similar too? Ribeiro has been thrown around although I don't think Naz will ever be as good as Ribeiro was offensively in his prime.

Who else at this stage?
I would say he has a lot of similarities to Patrick Kane

- good play maker
- sick hands
- perimeter player


Kadri still has a lot of work to do but his offensive potential as a forward is higher by far than any prospect in the system - which is not a good thing as we lack that true franchise forward that every team that won a cup has had (unless you count Kessel but I see him as a complimentary piece - like Fedorov was to Yzerman)
