Yes, because people have said that Mattias Ohlund = Chris Pronger.

There's a huge difference between a #1 defenseman and an elite Norris trophy winning defenseman.

What's really going to hurt Cowan, somewhat ironically, is that he'll have to go through re-entry waivers on the way back up if the Canucks want to call him up because of his one-way contract (and thus large AHL salary). Assuming Brown clears, he'll be the first call up for the fourth line because he won't have to go through re-entry.
