Ryan Murray is solide...but dont have the same offensive minded...but this is your better comparaison...I'll give you that one

Dumba is 6"0...steven was a human beast...6"3 225 pounds...dumba I would compare him to Pk Subban

Grigorenko is a big whale, he look lazy....radulov was an energy ball, no comparaison here...grigo looks like antropov

Nail Yakupov is more like Semin, just will hit a lot more, maybe better defensively too

I'm not sure any of those are close.

Hockey news put Murray along the lines of Alzner, Schenn and Shultz. Niedermeyer was a scoring machine in junior, Murray not so much.

Ceci along the lines of Del Zotto via hockey news (I prefer Kuba)

I think these youtube videos will give u perfect possible comparision for them all.







This is all youtube has to offer so far.

Just go to nhl.com - 2012 draft and find the pages where they have the videos on half of the 1st round draft picks.

I'm going to put 2 players for each prospect, basically a hybrid of two:

Yakupov - Bure/Mini-Ovie
Forsberg - Sundin/Alfredsson
Grigorenko - Thornton/Antropov
Murray - Wesley/Suter
Dumba - Phaneuf/Subban
Galchenyuk - Toews/Seguin

In my eyes, Dumba has Niklas Kronwall written all over him.

I don't see Schultz much, but Alzner and Schenn are very different players. By comparing him to both, all they're saying is that he's a defensive defenseman without saying anything else.
