The thing that I have been pleasantly surprised with is the hard, crisp pass this kid possesses. Everyone talked about the powerful stride, release, one-timer, etc. Basically all the sniper intangibles, but man can this kid put a hard pass on the tape. Best thing about it is those hard passes - if an opponenent gets a stick in the lane - usually deflect up and over the glass instead of being controlled and turned into an odd man rush the other way. With Gagner's RH shot, they could be a lethal pair as their timing and chemistry develop.
Now that being said, I still think The Nuge is the best of the bunch. He has all the elements to become a Datsyuk 2.0 - PPG player with elite D. Whether he reaches that level is another story.
