Keep in mind that these are comparisons of style, not of calibre.
ASQ>what's your opinion of Brayden Schenn?
Terrific leader, good skill (excellent play-maker), very physical, reliable all-around. Sort of a Mike Richards type of guy with less scoring and more passing. Not the best skater, but he's built for playoff hockey. He and Dustin Brown have the potential to comprise part of what is basically an ideal second-line for the post-season. Anze Kopitar at 6'4" isn't exactly going to be easy to shut down in the playoffs either.
Chicago, LA and St. Louis are the future (and present, to a certain extent) of the Western Conference IMO.
