How does he compare to Stefan Fournier?
Fournier is more "skilled" offensively. Nevins is very simple: forechecks, backchecks, hits hard and often, fights (and he actually draws/wins the majority of those fights, against top HW), works hard, blocks shots, crashes the net/goalie. I don't know his potential since he is a big surprise this season. He could become pretty much anything from an ECHLer to Brandon Prust... But since the future is already known, I would say that he should become a bottom-6 foward in the AHL with a few games in the NHL in his prime, in a bad team. As a Habs fan, I would like Nevins to have an AHL contract, not a NHL two-way deal.

Jack Nevins is closer to a Ryan White kind of player.
Not the junior player that White was, but I agree.
