This is a very unfair comparison that is going to be made by me, but he plays a style like Dougie Gilmour, or reminds me of a player of this ilk.

He just knows where to go for offensive chances, and he sees seams in the offensive zone ordinary players cannot.

Now the only thing he needs to do is develop a defensive game. If he does, he will be a very valuable player for us. Nazem always had the offensive gifts, as Gilmour did. But Gilmour became a Selke winner under Demers when he played behind Federko. Demers made him the checking center, and this made Gilmour one of the best 2 way fwds of all time.
