He's shown decent playmaking ability towards the end of the season, and he has a heavy-type shot that will lead to more than a few rebound goals in the future I think.

I haven't seen Pitkanen enough to really give my opinion.
I agree there are some you tube vids of him goig end to end in jr. & scoring, I have no doubt his production will increase.

As far as Pitkanen, I haven't heard anything bad about him, i've seem play a handfull of times.
