I think the physical side of his game will translate, but it's just the question of how long until he can do it at the NHL level. He's a skinny kid now, but he'll probably have to put on about 20-25lbs before he can do it. I don't think that'll really be an issue especially as he naturally fills out with age.

It just comes down to potential for me.

He might be less NHL ready, but I think Nurse has a good bit higher ceiling and floor than the other two.
It's funny how you compare Nurse to Seabrook. I see a lot of Seabrook in RR as well. RR plays a North American game so I'm not too worried about this toughness, ability to play defence and rub people off the puck. I don't have my min 100% made up yet but I would rank them:

1. Jones
2. Nurse
3. Ristolainen
4. Zadorov
5. Pulock
6. Morrissey

I think Mueller and Theodore are wild cards as well.
