Zibanejad has a long way to go before we can label him 'far better' offensively than Mike Fisher. He also isn't nearly as physical as Mike Fisher and doesn't throw himself in front of shots like Fisher does.

Fisher is very underrated. If Zibanejad became a winger version of Fisher we would be very lucky. Fisher was never the problem on our team -- the problem is that he wasn't a winger and we didn't have a 2nd line centre.
