Agreed, the skating is the most similar. Defarius skating techniques are top notch and a joy to watch his feet. Defarius is smarter in my opinion. Desousa has stretches of playing physical, imo. Im not writing off Desousa, just to clarify. He needs more ice in my opinion to develop. I also think he played his best all season long at the U17 tourney. Agreed ML979 would be benched and being filling the water bottles after his first shift @ the U17.
