My feeling from the material we are reading is a better, taller, faster version of Christian Thomas.

Thomas principally not yet here 'cause he's a lightweight.
Not clear how much more Duc may add, but is already a bit taller, hopefully enough.

Extremely small, best case scenario.
Another Peter Forsberg, small, super elite speed, gifted scorer.

But odds he turns into Forsberg are less than Kreider to first match into Keon level of talent for speed, then --- as he is now doing --- try to morph in stage 2 into a Pavel Bure type.


Maybe a better scoring version of Hagelin?
