Reminds me of Perron's skill with Oshie's grit

The best part about Tarasenko is his speed. Oshie and Perron have a high skill set as well, but neither are explosive skaters like Tarasenko. I stick to my production of a 40/40 guy in his best years.

I would be happy if he's a perennial 30 goal scorer.

Thinking about what Tarasenko and Perron could do together makes me drool.

I would rather see Tarasenko on the Backes / Oshie line. That line would be relentless.

Although the puck handling ability of Perron and Tarasenko could allow Berglund to find open pockets of space for one timers.

I'd rather see him on the opposite wing from Perron, and in time, Schwartz. Next year, my preferences: 1. Perron; 2. McDonald (very close second); 3. Steen. In years to come: Perron or Schwartz, pick 'em.

This is what I've seen out of Tarasenko:

Perron's stickhandling & dekes + wearing his joy on his sleeve
Oshie's grit/willingness to get his nose dirty to make a play
Stewart's speed (not quite McDonald speed but Stewart speed which is very good)
Boyes' shootout acumen

He doesn't have Oshie's insane reverse hit talent, but honestly almost nobody in the NHL does. One thing Stewart has the ability to do (and we saw last year but so rarely this year) is the ability to make a high-end hockey move at top speed. Tarasenko has that. He'll have a defender chasing at his own top speed, and then Tarasenko will stop on a dime, use the sudden space from that move and pick a corner. I'm certain that when he's in a Blue Note there will be those first 3 or 4 times he does it in front of the home crowd where jaws utterly drop at what he just did. Then his joy and the crowd's joy will merge into an immediate joyous union. It won't happen right away to some crazy 40 goal tune, but there will be enough signs of it that everybody will know that this could be something special. He's really at a different level than other prospects you see. The north-south game will translate. He's obviously humble and coachable. The team is going to win more because of his ability to finish, and winning breeds good feelings. His teammates will embrace him. It's going to be a great fit, you can just feel it coming.
