JT has NONE of those and is less likely to win them than RNH. He's not even close to being on the same level of Stamkos and the hype machine said he was going to be much better. Tavares is great but he's way over-hyped right now. He's barely better than Eberle and is worse defensively than a 22nd overall pick who plays for a worse team.
Crosby is without a doubt a much better player, I'm just talking about the way they play the game. How they stick handle, pass, skate. Just their style.

Not saying he's on Crosby's level but I'd say he's the player in the league who plays closest to Crosbys style of game.
