I believe Kuznetsov's ceiling is closer to Malkin than to Datsyuk.
In 3 months from now he will go to Worlds with some top-6 role I guess. We will see if he's progressing or not.
Difference between Malkin and Datsyuk? Datsyuk is smarter, has better hands. Shot? Not that much. Datsyuk is just such a brilliant playmaker that he passes more. Speed? No way. Datsyuk has a unique skating style(due to his "career starting" injury). It doesn't look fast, but it is when needed. Very fast. Size is definitely an issue.
And you can't talk about Malkin's and Datsyuk's ceiling. They are pretty much equal though different players with diffrent strenghs.
As for Kuznetsov, I doubt he'll get a top 6 role on that team, but he'll probably be there.
