RNH is the most Gretzky like player I've seen since Gretzky. He skates like Gretzky, he turns like Gretzky, and he seems to see the ice kind of like Gretzky. Gretzky himself said as much in Terry Jones's article today.

He'll never be close to as good as Gretzky (no one will) but stylistically the resemblance is uncanny.

You have to squint pretty hard to see any of the old Oilers in Hall, Eberle, Schultz, and Yak; that's fine though, they'll forge their own identities.
