As in will he make the team and continue to be an important player, or will his scoring streak soon end and with it, his importance?

So far I'd say he's more of a Tambellini, but I hope he proves me wrong!

He's like Burrows just a bit worse in basically every category.

Tambellini is a good comparison right now.. Hopefully he can be more consistent, and earn another contract with us

Tampon was good. If he was more consistent he would have been a pretty good pick up.

I think he's more than Tambellini. Definitely looks more athletically capable than Tambellini. But then Tambellini had a pretty sick shot.. which was deadly for a while..

For now, he's a fitness-nut Jeff Tambelllini on a wicked-hot streak. It'll take more than 4 games into the season to determine if he's anything more.

Personally, I think he'll cool down and probably finish around 15g and 20a, but based on his contract, anything over 20 points is a gigantic bonus.

I know people don't like the search, but is it really that hard to see all the recent Santorelli threads (both locked and open still)?

Santorelli a "feel good story" or "the real deal'?

Santorelli, 3rd line center option?

He won't be as good as Burrows, but don't think you can compare him to Tambellini either. Santorelli has at least had some prior success in the NHL (20 goals). In the end I think his current production will slow down but he'll still be a useful player.

Didn't he have a 20 goal season 2 or 3 seasons back?? When was the last time Tambellini had a 20 goal season?

2011/12, in the Swiss league B)

I liked Tambo. Wouldn't have minded him staying with the Canucks.

Yeah he did, but I meant it more in the context of the OP's question. He's definitely not a Burrows (player coming out of nowhere and lighting up the league for multiple years) yet, much closer to Tambelllini as he hasn't proven anything outside of a few games now and one good year a few years ago.

Definitely not saying that he doesn't have potential to prove himself though.

I think Santo is Santo...he is hustling his arse off,, scoring goals and is fit and ready...what more can you ask of a player?

If he would play 1st,,2nd, 3rd or 4th line...he would play at his upmost, and play it well..the guy is a CANUCK....I like this kid.

Stronger on the puck, and stronger on the hound than Tambellini. No comparison better!

As much as Burrows?

Probably stronger on the puck, but not as nifty... (or nasty)

He has hockey sense, that much is clear. He has a decent pair of hands that aren't flashy, but can get the job done. If he doesn't play perimeter hockey, I think he can pan out better than Tambellini.

Why try to categorize the guy? He's a Santorelli. He's played well at the NHL level before and he is living the dream of playing with the team he loved growing up. Just enjoy the ride and hope it continues for a while.

The problem is that a lot of people suffer from "special snowflake" syndrome where they believe that their ideas are super amazing and deserve their own special little thread, so as to avoid being lost in the clutter of an already existing topic.

And clearly you can see this in full effect here. An entire thread to ask a very simple question, in which the OP doesn't even offer much of an opinion of their own.

Perhaps we can start some other amazingly insightful threads like this one:

Kesler, is he more like Datsyuk or Mike Richards?

Kraft Dinner, more like pasta or ramen noodles?

Tomatoes, more like a fruit or a vegetable?


Anyway, I'm going to side with those that have said "too early to tell" and "Santorelli is Santorelli." I don't understand the constant need for comparisons.

He's out for 6 months (which will hinder his development) and he really needs that development. There's already worries that he won't translate to the NHL and he'll end up a huge ass bust.
