I suppose we can establish that the two are very different by making just one other observation: does Nail Yakupov even generate breakaways?
I haven't seen him generate any breakaways for himself.
Has he scored a single breakaway goal in two years as an NHL player? Not even one. One of Pavel's signatures is his ability to generate breakaways with his speed.
Here are Nail's 2013-14 goals:
He relies almost solely on his wrist shot and one-timer to score. Some of his goals are the result of rebounds, some are one-timers from the right side, and a few goals result from wrist shots.
Does PK Subban generate lots of break aways for himself...NO...so stop bashing other peoples observations and forcing Subban down everyones throats...Every bash you have at other people can be turned on Subban....
Subban... Plays defense, is no where near as fast, doesn't blow by defenders with his speed, doesn't get break aways...scores most of his goals on the PP with a 1 timer, from the point.
Bure, is a winger, explosive speed, could of been the fastest NHL player ever.
