EXACTLY. He simply has more skill than Dustin Brown does. Bobby Ryan is a very accurate comparison but Tarasenko is clearly faster. I think he really does have 80-85 point, superstar potential. For some reason, I think of James Neal whenever I think of Tarasenko, e.g. strong enough to be a PF but more skilled than that as well. My only concern, mostly a hunch, is that he might be prone to injuries because he will get his hands dirty.
