Looking at those videos he kind of reminds of Alexei Yashin who was also drafted #2 overall. Very quick hands and great puck handler for a big guy and protects the puck very well and seems to have a great feel for where everybody is. Once the puck is on his stick he knows where he's going with it and moves it quickly. Very decisive, He definitely doesn't float and he plays on both ends which is nice. I see a lot of Yashin (when he was healthy) in his offensive game and also some Mats Sundin similarities in his game. He is no Viktor Kozlov thank goodness who was a pretty frustrating player to watch that just couldn't put it all together.
