Please people...from what I hear about his game, he is a completely different type of player than Mario. Yes he will be an excellent scorer, but he seems to be a bit more of a two-way player than Mario. A lot of scouts have said that his scoring potential is probably lower than Kovalchuk's, but the rest of his game makes up for it. To me, he sounds like a Forsberg type. Responsible defensively, to go along with great offensive skills. However, not as ridiculous gifted offensively as Mario was at in his prime.
