As the NHL draft is approaching, I'd like to have some fun with comparing our prospects with current NHL players, according to the game-style, size and potential. If you can't find a good comparison, but know a bigger, or smaller player who resembles them, feel free to do the comparison adding the side-note.

You can do any prospect you want, I personally have not watched all the habs prospects play, so it would be informative, to know what to expect from a player. Alex Galchenyuk and other youngsters could be included. You could do a rating out of /10 on the chances of your player reaching that potential.

My personal list:
Jarred Tinordi= Erik Johnson 8/10
Alex Galchenyuk= Jonathon Toews 8/10
Nathan Beaulieu= Mike Green 7.5/10
Sebastian Collberg= Daniel Alfredsson 7/10
Dalton Thrower= James Wisnewski 7.5/10
Louis Leblanc= Janik Hansen 6/10
Morgan Ellis= Johnny Boychuck 7/10
Danny Kristo= Danny Briere 7.5/10
Michael Bournival= Chris Kelly 8/10
Greg Pateryn= Chris Phillips 7/10
Gabriel Dumont= Brad Marchand 7/10
Darren Dietz= Johnny Boychuck (once again) 8/10
Brady Vail= lesser Sean Couturier 8/10

So that is my list, I obviously left out some players because I don't know them too much. Some comparison might be off, so apologize if that offends you, but, to summarize, it looks like the habs have a bright future ahead of them. Specially after this draft
I don't understand the Tinordi-Johson one at all. Tinordi is a big/tough bruising d-man, Johnson is a big mobile guy who is supposed to be an impact guy offensively but who hasn't really put it all together.

Tinordi is more like Weber Chara or Regehr(in his prime).
