Chris Kreider has a ton of tendencies that remind me of Jeff Carter.

Staal has some tendencies that remind me of Chris Pronger.

Have a field day.

Also, the thing that makes the NHL's best so good is that they're not one trick ponies. Lesser players can be as good or even better then Superstars at a certain trait, even if that said star is great at it. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the OP you quoted. Fast was dynamite in his WJC appearance, and I remember thinking how slippery he was.
Yeah, I once struck out a guy with a nasty curve and reminded myself of Blyleven.

Staal and Pronger? Is it that they both wear ice skates when they play?
