Toews would be a good comparison.

I'd love to see him between two big bodied goal scorers like Ryan and Perry.
He would need two finishers like that to be close to PPG.

Toews is quite a bit better in goal scoring although Doug is the better play maker I'm not sold on his top 10 player status today.

At his peak sure but Doug had some just okay maybe top 20 seasons as well.

Comps are always a little incomplete though.
