I think that Milan Michalek and Mike Fisher are good analogues for Zibanejad - his playing style has some similarities between a mix of those two players. Both are physical specimens with a boatload of talent that is raw and both are productive NHLers... That being said both had more raw talent than their numbers and play suggests because they were each missing some hockey sense.
When i watch zibanejad I think he has a 70 shot, 60 hands, 70 skating, and 50 hockey sense.
As an example I would judge Turris as 75 shot, 65 hands, 65 skating, 70 hockey sense.
People jumping for the hate-on for Zibanejad should take a look at Turris - a year ago people were calling him a bust and now he looks like a legitimate 2nd line center.
