Timonen is better positionally and is more agile.
Ristolainen likes to play a physical game. Timonen is a technician who rarely plays the body.

Timonen has superior puck skills and playmaking abilities.

Ristolainen is 6'3. Timonen is 5'9.

Ristolainen is right handed. Timonen is left handed.

Ristolainen may be a 2nd unit PP guy. Timonen is a first unit PP guy with QB capabilities.

Aside from a few generalities, I think the two are poor comps. Timonen's IQ is off the charts and is something many prospects, including Ristolainen will never come close to.
