Doubt it when he compares Dougie Hamilton to Shea weber

Trouba has shades of Shea Weber

What about Kucherov?
Anyone guesses a similar player?

Drouin -> reminds me most of Patrick Kane

Grigorenko -> reminds me most of Getzlaf, minus the physicality, and with more of a shoot first mentality. Big differences, but I still see Getlzaf more than anyone else in terms of size, skating, puck handling, vision, etc.

Nichushkin -> reminds me of Nash

Trouba -> reminds me of Bogosian. FWIW, I think both Bogo and Trouba play a similar style to Shea Weber, though obviously they both have a long way to go to be as good as him. Trouba has been the best dman of the tournmanet so far, on any team, from what I've seen

Rielly -> not so much this tournament, where he's been playing a more cautious game, but he reminds me most of Letang, with less physicality and a less deadly shot. Also reminds me a bit of Karlsson, again without the bomb of a shot

Galchenyuk -> I see Hossa very strongly when I watch Galchenyuk

Grimaldi -> smaller Jason Blake. Great speed, great hustle, nice shot, but seems dumb as a rock out there, looks to shoot literally everything. Does not use his team mates well at all

Yakupov -> offensive style/abilities are similar to Ovechkin, but smaller and not as dominant

Nikita Kucherov = Pavel Datsyuk: sweet pairs of hands, can pass and score, always first on the puck and tough to take the puck from him.

Vasilevsky =Mike Smith : big and tall in front of the net, can be extremely hot or cold. Can take a game away by himself. Always letting a softie in once.

I don't remember where I read, but Red Wings scout Hakan Andersson says 4-6 games is the sample size required to make the best judgement of a player.

Trouba- A combination of the Hatcher brothers....Kevin's skating and offensive game with Derian's size and hitting.

I don't see much of Letang in Reilly at all to be honest. I see him more of a Brian Campbell or Duncan Keith hybrid. Drouin reminds me of Pat Kane.

If Trouba and Scheifele pan out anywhere near Weber/Seabrook and Getzlaf/Spezza, I will be a happy Jets fan.

From what I knew of Trouba before the draft I thought he was strong on D and lacked offensive skill. After watching him play, he is an amazing D-Man. All around good in everything. I think that Trouba will become a number 1 or 2 D-Man for the Jets.

Both will be solid players for the Jets. Sheifele just needs to work on his core strength; but he sure has the skill + determination to become a full on NHLer next season.

Galchenyuk is nowhere near Stamkos in terms of goal scoring.

He might peak at 40 goals, but I doubt he ever hits 50, let alone 60.

I think he will be a Hossa type player. Or play like Malkin.

I did mention ceiling.

That being said, it depends what type of players will surround him. Stamkos benefited from playing with the likes of St-Louis and Lecavalier - veterans near the top of their form when he busted in the NHL. I don't see Gally having the same support system.

I feel like Letang's skating was way better than Rielly's skating. I know Rielly is known as a great skater, but I just don't see the Letang in him. I see Brian Campbell.

Letang was a third round pick, clearly he did not have the same skill set at the same age. I think Rielly's ceiling is a notch above.

Grimaldi reminds me of an even more sefish Max Afinogenov with way way less production. Grimaldi has a better future as a speed skater or figure skater. Something where the focus is on skating and not on having to actually get a puck into a net.

2 He's a D from the Q

Yeah but Letang was a great skater in the Q and I don't see Rielly having a comparable skating style/level to Letang. Rielly is a great skater, but he doesn't play like Letang.
