Very unique player. Brian Leetch is the closest I've seen stylistically, but Ozo's lack of effort defensively was closer to Housley than to Leetch.
Despite his defensive problems, Ozo was awesome in the 1996 playoffs, usually playing with Joe Sakic. When Ozo was out there, the Avs were pure run-and-gun, and they had the talent (and goaltending) to play that way. The last team like that that won a Cup. Tampa Bay and Carolina were both offense-first, but they didn't go all-out the way Ozolinsh did.
