Not at all like Kopitar, I don't think.

I'm starting to think he might be better as a winger. He's played RW with Slavia and I think he's actually more of a goal-scorer than a playmaker, although he can do both well. He has the work ethic and the smarts to be a good two-way player, but he's really raw in that department.

I know I'm biased, but I just don't see a way he doesn't become a top-6 forward. I could definitely be wrong, because I'm just so excited about this kid, but he's so strong and has such good offensive instincts, I just don't see a way that he busts.
