I don't know if I see him as a Wiz type though I get the comparison. NB is much more creative and has top flight offensive skills where Wiz was more like 2nd tier, still really good but not as skilled as NB.

The only thing that worries me about NB is his intangibles. How he is between the ears. The off-ice stuff, the dealings with fans. I know that you can be a d#ck and still be a good hockey player but it is definitely a little worrisome for me. I think he'll be a good test for our development team whether he fulfills his potential or not.
