Marleau isn't a good comparison because Nieto is grittier but they have similar speed and skating.
Ya - that's pretty much what I said...though I don't agree with your description of his defensive play, yet.

Anyhow, his pro debut was very good even though the WorSharks lost (again). His speed caused lots of problems for BST and they used him in all situations.

On a side note, Hamilton continues to get better and better every game. Tarasov is impressive too. And Strome (BST) is really fun to watch!
