Watching the world junior games I noticed the announcers, every two seconds: "Marko Dano, Marko Dano, Marko Dano, Marko Dano, Marko Dano"

When he's on the ice you hear his name ALOT. I always take that as a sign that a player has a high level of involvement in all three zones. Guys like that tend to be special players.

I know it sounds like something silly to go on but I've noticed this tendency with guys like Claude Giroux, Mike Richards, Ryan McDonagh, Ryan Getzlaf, just to name a few. All really good players.

Now I'm not saying Dano will be as good as those guys, but I think his tendency to make himself noticed speaks to the type of player he is. He's not a follower on the ice, he's a leader. He takes charge, he makes a difference. I think there's alot of upside with this type of player.
