Really, it's impossible to compare upsides; but these are stylistic comparisons. Some guys may turn out better, most will turn out not as good. Some make guys like me look like a genius and end up right on par
Not bad, as a follower of another team. I like the Savard to Wideman comparison and think it really fits. JAM reminds me a lot of Danny Briere. The whole French-Canadian, high scoring junior from the Q with a bit of a mean streak and subtle dirty to his game. Briere is/was quite a bit more skilled, but it works for me.

I feel like Booner Jenner has a higher upside than Malhotra, and I know you said it wasn't based on upside but rather stylistic play.

Not really sure about Johansen to Thornton or Getzlaf. I tend to see more Eric Staal to his game. Typically not a guy who is throwing his weight around, but is learning to use it to protect the puck.
