I will second the Hawerchuck comparison...although I think Hawerchuck and Stevens are both pretty similar players but Hawerchuk was more prolific so your comparison is a little bit better than mine. Regardless we agree on the skillset.

I think the comparisons to Turgeon and Lafontaine are way off based on skating. JT is a much improved skater and above average in my opinion, don't get me wrong. He is nowhere near the agility level that Turgeon and Lafontaine showed though.
