These are mine

Tatar = Hudler
Both undersized forwards with great offensive ability to play top 6

Jarnkrok = Zetterberg
Strong on the puck and a hard worker. Gives his all on the ice in all zones.

Nyquist = Filppula?
Believe me i have faith in Nyquist to be a top 6 forward. Both possess good offensive and defensive talent, but missing that wow factor. Filppula made some pretty great plays in his career, but never lived up to his expectations consistently.

Pulkkinen = Poor man's Hull
I think Pulkkinen has the most boom or bust potential. Neither were great skaters, but is there slapshots something.

Frk = Marchand
Both play with an scrappy edge. Both with scoring ability.

Mrazek = Hasek
Unorthodox playing styles. Czech

Ouellet = Kronwall?
Ouelett is slightly undersized for a d-man. Can play all zones efficiently and is a great leader and skater.

I could go on forever with other prospects like jurco, sprout, ect. But I want to know what you think.

Mantha- James Neal
Frk- Prime/pre-injury Dan Cleary
Jurco- Parise
Sproul- Letang
These are all high end comparisons

Jarnkrok - Zetterberg
Mrazek - Hasek
Tatar - Hudler (with more grit)
Nyquist - Filppula
Jurco - Datsyuk
Andersson - Malholtra
Sheahan - Tinky Winky (JK, Laich)
Backman - Lidstrom

Ouellet - Kronwall (with a little more grit and a little less wall)
Ferraro - Ray Ferraro

Frk - Milan Michalek
Pulkkinen - Hull (just the slapper)
Athanasiou - Filppula
Callahan - Tootoo
Mckee - Scott Stevens
Mantha - Ovechkin (with less grit)
Bertuzzi - Tootoo
Nastasiuk - Cleary
Tvrdon - Hossa
Sproul - Letang (with a little more D and a little less O)
Hampus Melen - ..... Hampus Melen

Obviously comparing anyone to Lidstrom/Datsyuk/Stevens/Ovechkin is a little wishful, but it's more of a style thing

Ferraro = Maltby with a scoring touch

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
