    NHL player comparisons (obviously not the numbers they will hit, but playing style/body type etc)

    From what I've heard...

    Couturier=a poor mans Vinny Lecavalier

    RNH=a poor mans Matt Duchene

    Strome=Seguin-like

    Is this accurate, and for each, what's their upside. Just curious as I only got to see Couturier live here in Buffalo during WJC in US-Finland game. Thanks

    I would only call the first two "a poor man's" because they are young. They might end up being better than those two comparison players you named.

    Has a weak physique? Is that what you were trying to say?

    Wouldn't sell Strome short if he still has a very slight frame. The guy is a dynamic talent.

    Jaja ich glaub that was what I was trying to say.
    I think RNH is even stronger than Strome and would Strome perhaps see as a wing as a pro. He reminds me a bit of the guys like Toffoli, McKegg etc. Makes a lot of points as a junior but it's doubtful how they translate in the NHL with their physical problems and tehir game in general.
