No different than Ryan Getzlaf falling to 19 really.

Malkin's concussion was far worse. Tukonen played in a different league and Olesz was dang impressive until Phaneuf got him with a check.

People are acting like this kid missed 6 months with a concussion for pete's sake.

And I don't know about Tukonen out playing him in every tournament. Had he not been hurt, Olesz performance at the WJC's could have had him leap frog Malkin at that point {with Malkin out}.

As for Olesz {like Tukonen} he could go anywhere from third to seventh and it would really relfect little on him so much as just people's opinions and desires. After the Ovechkin, everyone is really close. And even Ovechkin isn't miles ahead in terms of skills, he's just put it together better so far.
