They are no different at all.

If we had right winger with skill, instead of Abs, he'd create a TON of space.
That's why Tatar makes sense on Datsyuk's wing

And come on... Cleary is what? 6'0? 200 pounds? Abdelkader is 6'1 210?
These aren't big guys
They are bigger than the 5'11'' 175 that Tatar rings up at. And I think Cleary is a prime example of what happens when smaller guys consistently try to play a bigger game. You can't tell me that part of the reason he's had such a hard time staying healthy is that he's played a game his body wasn't suited for.

And I agree, I'd put Tatar or Gus on Datsyuk's wing now.
