And he's a centre again.
He's just awesome. More responsible defensively than Ovechkin (obviously, because that's not hard to accomplish). He's not as physically gifted as Ovechkin, but he thinks the game better.
Maybe Ovechkin-lite in terms of his shot and skating. But then again he could easily be a two-way centre.
Kesler/Ovechkin hybrid in terms of playing style, but not on Ovechkin offensive level or Kesler's defensive level. But he needs to more consistent with his physical play for that comparison to be accurate. He's a cool player, hard to pin down one player he's exactly like. I see some Zetterberg in there in how he covers the whole ice, but he's obviously not the playmaker Zetterberg is.
