If anything Ristolainen might be closer to those two names.
This is all speculation, you can't actually think you can project these players accurately anymore than I can. Which is why I said I think based on what I've seen and a gut feeling. I highly doubt either of them turn into a Pronger or Chara.

I would argue Zad is better defensively and is the better skater as well having the physical advantage. The only thing Risto has on Zadorov right now is a more developed offensive game and hockey smarts (which I believe is the result of playing in a men's league/learning from pros). Risto also has the advantage of being slightly older.
