Lazar seems to have the potential to play that role. If he can be a David Bolland I would take him 12th-15th overall in a second.
I'd say that's a fair comparison for Lazar.
He just does everything right. I watched him 5 or 6 times in November and I was stunned when I found out he hadn't scored a goal all month. He's has incredible hockey sense, is always winning battles and always making plays. At a game against Kootney last week I heard the Doan comparison being thrown around as well.
