Mikael Samuelsson and Mike Knube are two more examples of big forwards who took a long time to hit their stride. I don't see Hugh as ready either but he seemed to progress quite a bit last year to the point where he was a productive AHL player. The key is whether he continues to progress--if he plateau's at where he's at he's Michael Rupp. If he can make more strides this season he's possibly an NHL player in 09-10.
