Do you know how often forwards skate all the way from their blue line and split two NHL caliber defenders on a North American ice surface? Almost never.
He doesn't seem to possess any vision for his teammates when I've watched him and his hockey sense is hard to judge because he's so selfish and has shown a complete inability to pass the puck.
The only reason people say he looks like a young Malkin is because he's big and skates similar. He has none of Malkin's vision, passing and ability to score further than 5 feet from the net.
So all the professional scouts who watch his every movement are wrong and you are right? His play style is eerily similar to Malkin and Rich Nash from what I've watched from him.
