It's progression. I didn't see Nurse last year but apparently he was nothing to write home about. Then this season he took a leap up. Watching him in early November and then in February and few times in late March he got better and better every time. So he keeps showing improvement which usually excites scouts.
The other thing about Nurse is that he has a lot of room to fill out so people are picturing what he might look like fully filled out and they probably salivate.
He is a great skater with good agility so that is a plus. I said in earlier posts that I haven't seen the offensive side that others talk about with Nurse but scouts do mention it so that is probably why he gets ranked ahead of Z.
Zadarov is already physically mature so he probably doesn't have as much room to grow. Also Z did struggle with faster forwards at times so that is another point In favor for Nurse.
I haven't watched London in the playoffs yet so it will be interesting to see Zs development at Mem Cup
