I saw limited action, but here are a few that I compared to while watching.

Murphy - PK Subban
Hamilton - Franson or Slower Bouwmeester (Don't take that Franson comparison as an insult. I just see a lot of the same playing style.)
Drouin - Giroux
Mackinnon - Eric Staal/Ryan Getzlaf hybrid
Subban - Carey Price/Ed Belfour
Rielly - Letang
Trouba - Derian Hatcher
Rocco Grimaldi - St. Louis
Grigorenko - Nik Antropov

Viktor Arvidsson reminds me of Steve Sullivan. Both are small, play right hand down, can skate and score. Not saying that Arvidsson has a similar career, just a style comparasion.

This is comparing styles, not their production or NHL career...

Barkov is more like Datsyuk than Malkin if we don't compare their sizes. Barkov is good at intercepting passes and forechecking.

Valeri Nichushkin reminds me much of Rick Nash, high skills and strong.

Rasmus Ristolainen is something like Brent Seabrook. Hits pretty hard, very hard slapshot and good at both sides of the rink. And of course very confident with the puck and doesn't take any mistakes with it.

Linus Omark is a below average skater, skating is Arvidssons best tool. Omark is also much more of a playmaker while Arvidsson is a shooter.

Saw someone make the comparison Lindholm-Eriksson, but for me the player who has some similarities to Eriksson on this team is Wennberg.

from what I've seen Trouba seems closer to a Doughty...His has high offensive upside (more than D. Hatcher)

Trouba = R. Blake / Doughty hybrid
Rielly = B Leetch
