Nugent-Hopkins, Landeskog = Sakic, Forsberg?
NHL.com recently caught up with Central Scouting's Jack Barzee to discuss those little differences that create the makeup of each player. Barzee was obviously impressed with what each forward had in their arsenal.
"Do you want (Peter) Forsberg or (Joe) Sakic?" asked Barzee, referring to Nugent-Hopkins as Sakic. "I know that's pretty extreme because they were two superstars, but here are two guys that have a lot of similarities. They remind you of those players when they've got the puck, when they're skating, when they're playing and when they're executing."
more if you follow the link. Wanted to post it last week but my mobile options seem to be limited. Anyways... interesting read for those interested in the draft.
