I couldn't say if Rockström likes Tukonen or not, but I'll say one thing, he doesn't seem to like Finnish players. If you look back on the teams he's been European scout for, the Rangers and the Red Wings, they never draft Finns... (just something i've noticed, i still think he's a decent scout).

I'd love for the Rangers to get Tukonen for sentimental reasons (he's from the same town as one of my best friends, stuff like that), and from all I've read, most people project him as a good, safe all-round pick, with size and skill. Thing is, it strikes me that there are enough players who each simply offer something more than he does in any one area that one of them would be available at number 6. If we were drafting a few picks further down, not even that many, I think most people would be excited to get him.
