He reminds me of two players (and this is scary): Jeff Skinner and Nazem Kadri. High offensive production, slightly undersized.

I'll admit I haven't seen enough MD play to fully judge how good he is defensively.
I agree he gets sort of underrated around here. I would also agree he tends to not get the credit he deserves playing on a strong London team. Yeah a strong team helps, but the kid is ultra talented.

I would still take Horvat over him though. I like Horvat's all around game, and I believe he has an underrated offensive game that could explode given the proper conditions.
